Obama Was Born in Kenya & Wait Until You See the 'Proof'

Eye Roll 288

obamaMan, some people just don't know when to quit.

Like the "birther" conspiracy theorists who'll jump on any and every piece of misinformation they can find and broadcast it as proof that Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States.

Nothing, not even the release of his long-form birth certificate, seems to put them off. And even though their arguments are as pointless and nonsensical as Newt Gingrich's ridiculous "Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior" remarks, those squeaky wheels still get lubed up with attention.

So I'm not surprised that they're all hopping up and down again, waving an author's bio of Obama from 1991 around in the air like a victory flag. Oh boy, we've really got him this time!!

I can just see them salivating when they first read these words...

"Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya, and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."

Not so fast. Of course, there's more fool than proof going on here.

Because the blurb comes from a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by literary agency Acton & Dysel (Obama was a client at that time), and the booklet's editor admits it was a mistake, calling it "nothing more than a fact-checking error by me -- an agency assistant at the time."

"There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii."

Well, okay then. That's a pretty clear explanation, wouldn't you say? Nope, no, still counts as evidence, apparently. Unbelievable.

Do you think the "birther" conspiracy theories will ever end?

Mark Smith,I think he means this:
Ever since 9/11 ,we have had bad judgements against muslims.Though nine eleven was not caused by all of the middle east/muslims.It was caused by horrible people who sadly represent that part of the world now.
What he is saying,is that if American Government turned evil and decided to torment those sides of the world,he will stand up for them.Sure,a few men from Iran and Iraq decided to kill thousands of americans,but I bet most muslims (atleast the women) are good-natured.It's just that some of the government doesn't think highly of women,and the men are led to think the same too.
So if American government decided to invade and kill the innocent/good people,he would be willing to commit treason to do the right thing.To stand by the good side.

It will stop only when Obama finally produces a valid birth certificate or when he leaves office. If I were him, I'd produce my birth certificate and put an end to it, but then, I actually WAS born in the U.S.

In time the writer will realize how duped she has been
I wonder is she believes in 9/11 being a terrorist plot and her answer to the vaporized planes at the Pentagon and the field in Pensylvania ?
No wings, no engines, no fuselage, no tailfins, no bodies, no luggage, no blackboxes, no nothing.. But it was all a terrorist plot and yet we never see the Pentagon or Penslyvania footage again?
Too many questions to answer

Navywife the President should stand with America as its commander in chief, not with any religion. If you are a navywife, perhaps reality pills will help ?

The only conspiracy is the media's lack of willingness to investigate this as much as they would have if he was a Republican. And what the media and public really should be up in arms about is a person who admits to being born with dual allegiance, dual citizenship, has been elected president of the USA. It is terrifying that someone who has a birthright allegiance not only to his father's non-American homeland but also to his father's so called "religion" aka a bigoted political system, has become President. Be afraid people, be very afraid. Think about how you would have viewed something like 9/11 happening if you were told it was a possibility on 9/10. The majority would not have believed it and would have called the messenger a bigot, well go ahead call me one again. I pray I am wrong even though I prayed I was wrong before...Intuition, do you trust it? I didn't before, and I am struggling to do so now.

The actual issue here is that Obama has lied through his teeth and when his butt is kicked out of office he WILL be charged with several felonies!

I have had up to the top of my head over where he was born.Don't you think The FBI and CIA has checked out every detail of Obama?It is just a political move to put doubt in people's mind.Donald Trump keps bringing it up and where's his proof.He just makes a fool of himself.He wants Romey in there because as they have broken done Romney's tax code T he Donald will benifit again.We the lower income will pay more.Check it out.CNN had experts to break down the tax code he wants if he's president.Here wee go again.Lets give the rich more tax break for moving our jobs out the United States and listen them grio about the unemployment record.Bring our jobs back and we wouldn't have this problem.It tht so hard for American people to figure out.Cam't employee millions of people when they take millions of jobs away for slave labor.I worked at a GE plant that did it and the politicans are benifiting from it.Lets not upset the people who pay your re election.

It really doesn't matter where 'Obama' was born, what matters now is what his IDEOLOGY and TRANSFORMATION of AMERICA he's done!  Are you satisfied being a '3rd World Country' now?  Are you going to REDISTRIBUTE YOUR WEALTH?  Please tell me why the POTUS won't even release ANY records?  Who is this 'man-child' that came out of NOWHERE , with nothing but his RHETORIC?  He's duped America... He doesn't enforce LAWS that are already passed by Congress.. Remember DOMA?  So, please tell me what's wrong with people asking to see his RESUME?  Any employer won't hire you if you don't meet their QUALIFICATIONS, yet American's bought into his RHETORIC, knowing his resume was as 'Thin as a Pizza Crust'... What MORONS we have, who won't even take the time to do any research before they vote!  Many of us DID OUR HOMEWORK, and didn't vote for an 'inexperienced' man to be LEADER of the Most Powerful Country in the World...   As we witness daily, the 'lies' and incompetence in the W.H.  If you think the POTUS didn't 'LEAK' highly classified information, you're pretty dumb... All of these 'Leaks' had to come from those who were 'in the room' with the POTUS...  He's running scared that he won't be re-elected, and that my friends, make him DANGEROUS to AMERICA!!  But, vote as you will.. I know some will vote for him because he's COOL, other's because he's BLACK ..I hardly think those are QUALIFICATIONS to be President!.
