Who says Barack Obama doesn't have what it takes to be president? Turns out, he's a distant cousin of both Dick Cheney and George Bush.

If we all were able to trace our genealogy back far enough, we'd all be related somehow.

Yep. In fact, I think my Uncle Adam married your Aunt Eve.

That's a bit gross to think about... So, if me and my girlfriend break up, I should still invite her to Thanksgiving as she is still my cousin? lol

The last president not to be related to the Bush's, somewhere in their bloodline, was JFK...things that make you go hmmm. yet his vice president, at the time, shared the royal bloodline that bush and obama have.

I have a crazy cousin who traced our family genealogy way back, and I'm almost positive that she said that our family is descended from Charlemagne too.

That video about the royal bloodline is totally false. There is no great conspiracy. Its just that the further back you go in time, the more likely you are to run into a shared ancestor among people, whether they are prominent and wealthy or just average everyday people like me. It proves nothing.
