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.

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.
Thanks for posting.
