Note from Senior Management:
Andrew Breitbart was never a "Birther," and Breitbart News is a site that has never advocated the narrative of "Birtherism." In fact, Andrew believed, as we do, that President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961.
Yet Andrew also believed that the complicit mainstream media had refused to examine President Obama's ideological past, or the carefully crafted persona he and his advisers had constructed for him.
It is for that reason that we launched "The Vetting," an ongoing series in which we explore the ideological background of President Obama (and other presidential candidates)--not to re-litigate 2008, but because ideas and actions have consequences.
It is also in that spirit that we discovered, and now present, the booklet described below--one that includes a marketing pitch for a forthcoming book by a then-young, otherwise unknown former president of the Harvard Law Review.
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.
Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama's then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."
The booklet, which was distributed to "business colleagues" in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.
It also promotes Obama's anticipated first book, Journeys in Black and White--which Obama abandoned, later publishing Dreams from My Father instead.
Obamas biography in the booklet is as follows (image and text below):

I noticed how Breitbart prefaced the revelation, i.e., they are not birthers and believe Obama was born in Hawaii. It just shows how effective Obama and the compliant MSM have been in marginalizing anyone who questions Obama’s birth story.
So, Mr Obama. Were you lying then or are you lying now?
Sounds like he was using a foreign birth claim when it suited him...probably for free tuition...AND ya never know, maybe he really was born in kenya.
Was this another one of Obama’s composite fictionalizations?
‘Uh...when I told them ‘Kenya’, I meant...uh...’Kenya Street’ in Honolulu’.
I’m continually stunned by the people on our side that are willing to ignore the evidence in front of them.
Sounds like the M.O. of the left, ie. Granny Warren...
This is what we get when we elect cowards....
ANYBODY who claims that are a “middle roader” they are admitting to being a coward....
The moral of the story...don't vote coward.
Financial journalist? When did BO work as a “financial journalist”? I’ve read a couple of bios of him and don’t remember “financial journalist” jumping out at me.
Since he never could manage his own finances, or ours, just exactly ehat does a financial journalist do? sarc/off
I think I read somewhere that his first job after graduating from Harvard Law school was that of a junior editor on a very small financial newsletter. Not one of any real significance and a very low level job for a Harvard-trained lawyer. Also of if memory serves me correctly he had the same problems at this job he had while being editor of the Harvard Law Review, mainly that of showing up for work on time, keeping normal work hours, etc. He didn’t stay very long, soon moved to the greener pastures of Chicago.
For a man who wrote two autobiographies before he had done a single accomplishment he sure does have a mysterious background. It's all very perplexing.
“For a man who wrote two autobiographies before he had done a single accomplishment he sure does have a mysterious background. It’s all very perplexing.”
No it isn’t. Obama is the Manchurian candidate. His life has been crafted by others to bring him to exactly where they wanted him. And over the last 3 years, everyone gotten paid off.
Based on the news over the last 3 years, I would check the relationship between George Soros and Warren Buffet. These two have the financial and political power to destroy governments.
Whether he was born in Hawaii or Kenya, Obama has claimed both at various times to advance himself, and both cannot be true. This story, at the least, shows BO’s utter lack of veracity.
