Skip to comments.Kenyan Birth Claim “Just a Marketing Gimmick”
Posted on 05/20/2012 10:46:54 AM PDT by John Semmens
The revelation that a promotional brochure produced in 1991 by Barack Obamas literary agency touting his Kenyan birth was called just a marketing gimmick by Press Secretary Jay Carney.
The president was trying to persuade a publisher to give him a book deal, Carney explained. Naturally, he wanted to make the sale, so the fact that he embellished his resume shouldnt come as a big surprise to anyone. Come on, making yourself look bigger and better than you really are is standard procedure if you hope to survive in our competitive culture. I mean, is there anyone who hasnt lied under similar circumstances?
To those that might harbor suspicions that the reported Kenyan birth could be true, Carney suggested that even if it were, I think the point is moot. The president has shown that he is fully capable of handling the job. Any deficiencies he may have had on paper have been more than offset by his on-the-job performance for the last three years. Besides, I think the statute of limitations on the whole natural born citizen issue has expired.

I think Obama being born inKenya is a Big Fat True !!!!
Hey John. I think you left out the second half of the post. You know, the part with the satire in it. :)
trouble is he lies about everything
Carney suggested that even if it were, I think the point is moot.”
So, the Congressman was right when he blurted out, “You lie” during Obama’s State of the Union address. But it is not important that Obama lied to us, the important thing is that we can never believe him again.
Oh, I almost forgot. There is also a YouTube video in which Michelle Obama stated that Obama’s home country is Kenya. Well, perhaps we can believe Michelle. As far as I know she has never retracted her statement.
OK... here is the $10,000 question... Obama’s “marketing” there was used as a prop to his election, to him being annointed for his path to power.
THEY CANNOT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS.
Even if the birth thing cannot be solved, who is this thing? There has not even been a tinkling of a truth. He is a communists black Muslim and to that there is no doubt. As for the rest he has acted like a criminal twisting and violating our Constitution and laughing all the way.
Clearly, the Constitution has no meaning for this regime. The issue isn't whether or not he can "handle the job." The issue is whether he constitutionally qualified for the job. AND THERE IS NO STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR THAT, YOU !@#$%^&*()_)(*&^%$%^&*()_)(*&^%$!!!!!
I’m going to put extra butter on my popcorn...
Oh. Satire. Truthfully, I missed that. Seemed all plausible. Sad.
Found this yesterday. Looks like the New York Slimes forgot to scrub an article from October 2007. Interesting.
If Obama doen’t get buried in this election with a landslide of unequaled proportions in any election ever, Capitalism is dead!!!
These actions and comments excusing the actions if they are true are mind boggling. That is probably the strategy of their campaign. Say and do things so outrageous, the public’s eye is taken off the major points of which one is the point on Obama’s head.
If the Republicans win and control congress in the November elections, we had better be screaming to prosecute the actions of this administration and it’s willful disregard of the Constitution at every opportunity. If they don’t pay attention to the laws of the land the only thing left are vigilantism. This country was developed with the assistance of the gun. It probably need a good dose of it again.
The US Constitution is our nation's statute of limitations, and it's being trampled into the ground by Democrat communists.
So that person who wrote the promotional brochure is being called a liar by Carney. They are lying now (a fact-checking oversight claim) or they lied then. Either way he is calling them a liar. Moreover obama was willing to allow that lie stand for crass commmericial gain....that is to deceive the book-buying public....So Obama sanctions lying and is confirmed by Carney.
So in other words he has no qualms about lying about where he was born to get a job.
a marketing gimmick would be to say he was born in Alaska, clearly because very few liberals are born there
Same could be said with the faked US BC. It’s just a marketing gimmick to get all the free vacations he and Moochelle want and a way to line his pockets with tax dollars.
Deja vu all over again John. Quit pimping your blog please.
Every article John posts is in it’s entirety. The option to read different subjects is available. I think John is very clever in many of his observations. He is sharing more than “pimping”.
BTW, many FReepers enjoy his humor.
Might as well tell TSG and Rush to quit pimping as well.
It is not Obama’s marketing gimmicks that we should worry about, but the fact that he occupies a position in government that allows him to sell the entire country down the river without any opposition from Congress — at least not from this Congress.
John has long been FR community approved and he posts his musings in their entirety, which is rule #1.
Another good one John.
About three years ago, former Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs when -
“asked why the issue of Mr. Obama’s birthplace keeps coming up he replied: “Because for $15 you can get an internet address and say whatever you want. “
Fake but accurate or is it inaccurate and not fake or fake and total BS?
I’ll take the latter for $1,000 Alex.
When truth is stranger than satire.
Now wait just a minute! Didn't "girlfriend" Genevieve Cook supposedly write nearly the exact same thing? I read through the Vanity Fair article but couldn't find it. I thought I had read Cook saying this in the FR threads. Can someone find it, please?
Business International was also known to be a front company for the CIA.
Yes, and the recent “news” as to the improving economy is too.
That boyzngrlz is why the Constitution is dead, dead, dead. Now we only have to prove to be capable(barf) and it doesnt matter what or who we were.
The president was trying to persuade a publisher to give him a book deal,
So the Mother effer committed fraud to get a book deal?
Is that OK Carnnuts? You commit fraud?
And there are people on this specific site that would rather see this C sucker be re-elected?
So I’ve heard.
My tin foil hat was whispering, “more faked composites, more faked composties” between Cook and the BI woman.
It’s at least dishonest and unethical if not fraud to sell your book under false pretenses...no different than me claiming I had a degree from the Sorbonne, worked as an engineer at NASA or claiming I was married to Morgan Fairchild.
huh? It’s “bigger and better” to have been born in Kenya? What?
Yea. Me. I was raised better.
Øbama throws another one under the bus. After that lowly assistant says it was an editing error....ooops.
The whole where was he born thing is a diversion
It matters not where HE was born. The natural born citizen issue hinges on where were his PARENTS born.
Barry Soetoros presumptive old man Lolo Soetoro WAS NOT BORN HERE!!!!
End of argument!
So should Joe Wilson get an apology now that Carney has stated that Obama is a liar?
I knew it. The fraud is one of "The Finders" freaks. The ultimate manchurian candidate.
Why is it that EVERYTHING about Obama’s past is an “Error!”, a “Mistake!”, or “YOU MUST BE A RACIST!!!”?
Wayback Feature Unravels the Obama Bio Lie
Doug Ross of Director Blue used the wayback feature to investigate Obamas literary agencys website and it shows that there were a number of revisions to the literary agent-distributed Obama biography that said he was born in Kenya; these revisions reflected changes in Obamas life. But it wasnt until 2007 when he threw his hat in the ring for the presidency that the bio was changed to state he was born in Hawaii.
