'Obama was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii': President claims he WAS born in Africa
Mail Online ^ | 17 May 2012 | Beth Stebner

Posted on 05/17/2012 1:43:58 PM PDT by Brown Deer

In the cover for a 1991 booklet, President Obama is billed as ‘the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, (who) was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.’

‘It is evidence – not of the President’s foreign origin, but that Barack Obama’s public persona has perhaps been presented differently at different times.’

President Obama released his birth certificate to the public last April. He said during a press briefing at the time that he was ‘puzzled at the degree to which this thing just keeps going on.’ He said: ‘We’ve had every official in Hawaii, Democrat and Republican, every news outlet that has investigated this, confirm that, yes, in fact, I was born in Hawaii, August 4, 1961, in Kapiolani Hospital.’

The internet took to the Breitbart story like wildfire, with both the left and right coming up with heated responses to the article. Media Matters for America, a politically progressive watchdog group, called the article ‘the latest instalment of the self-serious and wildly incompetent Breitbart.com-let “vetting” of President Obama.’ They point out an article published February 6, 1990 in the New York Times, which declares that Mr Obama, 28, was elected as the first black president to The Harvard Law Review. It read: ‘His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr Obama was born in Hawaii.’ Mr Obama submitted a book proposal to Simon & Schuster imprint Poseidon Press worth more than six figures in November 1990. The book, tentatively called Journeys In Black And White, was later abandoned for the autobiography Dreams From My Father.

All Congresspeople should act or resign, as they are guilty of abusing the public’s trust.

They should have been thrown behind bars 3.5 years ago. They've only compounded their guilt allowing the poser to squat in my WH.

It was a “This is us” and “These are our people we represent.” info booklet for their 15th anniversary in business..........

Sounds like overcompensation for their shortages.

I don’t know for certain, but seeing as how this particular administration has been operating, I would be willing to bet real money that the various NEWS media including FOX have been threatened with FCC sanctions if any of this stuff ever gets repeated by them.

I see the Breitbart account has been killed on DU LBN on the grounds that the story didn’t come from a credible source. I wonder if the power structure will be able to ruthlessly suppress this little bombshell until after the election.

The Clinton economy was GOOD due to the Bush lag, so Rats will switch horses at their Con claiming “family time/illness.”

GO to Breitbart.com and put the links in the tip tab on the right side. We need to send them ALL the articles we’ve found through the years. He has never bothered to contact the newspapers to run a correction.

THe meme is: “ Is he lying now or way he lying then?” Use it often and on other sites.

still nothing from the lamestream.

Headlines on national news include Donna dies, poor widdle unarmed Trayvon's killer "appears" to have a broken nose and pictures of the murder weapon, and whites are now in the minority. Not a word about Hussein all day. Zilch. Zero. Nada. Not even a b-ball score for him. A day without The Won is a day someone's hiding something.

And nothing has come of that, just like nothing will happen with this. It’s a bloody shame.

I hope not, we need America to get straightened out!

They will certainly try.

There was also that statement in the Kenyan Parliament meeting that he was born in Kenya. That statement was never updated/contradicted/changed/oopsied.

There was not one, but at least three different statements by three different Kenyan parliamentarians, indicating he was born in Kenya.

In addition, the Kenyan ambassador to the United States, speaking in an interview on a Detroit FM radio station the day following the 2008 election, not only stated that Obama was born in Kenya but also said that his place of birth would be turned into a national historic site.

Obviously, “Birthers” time traveled back to 1991 and planted this promotional booklet because they somehow knew Obama would some day be President.

Of course Romney won’t raise the issue. George Romney never signed his citizenship papers (required at age of majority for those born abroad to American parents), so he was an American resident, not an American citizen.

Not only that, Mitt can just sign a declaration and become a Mexican citizen having been born to a Mexican father.

The 0nly difference between BO and MR is skin color.
