Obama’s Lit Agency Used 'Born in Kenya' Bio Until 2007 [New article - not a duplicate]
breitbart.com ^ | May 17, 2012 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 05/17/2012 2:38:23 PM PDT by grundle

According to archive.org, a website that caches websites on a regular basis, the Dystel.com website – the official website for Dystel & Goderich, Obama’s literary agents – was using the Barack Obama “born in Kenya” language until April 2007, just two months after then-Senator Obama declared his campaign for the presidency.

Archive.org shows that the Dystel website used the following biography for Obama as of April 3, 2007:

"BARACK OBAMA is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, has been a long time New York Times bestseller."

Obama launched his presidential campaign in February 2007.

By April 21, 2007, the Obama bio had been changed to state that Obama was born in Hawaii:

"BARACK OBAMA is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Hawaii to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, has been a long time New York Times bestseller."

Obama had already been a national figure for three years, since the Democratic National Convention in 2004, by the time the biography was changed; he had been a sitting Senator for over two years.

Yup. And this is the important point. An argument could be made that a mistake was made on the 1991 flyer. But to carry a “mistake” on for 16 more years seems just a leeeetle bit unlikely.

This original story had his true Kenyan birth noted, until they made a “correction”.

The coverup continues.There is just too much peripheral evidence: his own family members admitting he was born in Kenya, one family member saying she was present at his birth in Kenya, Michelle’s slip of the tongue admitting he was born in Kenya, Obama’s slip of the tongue while being interview by George Stephenapolous, and on and on. It gets to the point when there are just too many holes in the dike to plug. Obama is nearing the end of his political career, at least in this country.

The POS is such a mongrel bastard I doubt if even he knows how many twists and turns his life has in in.

This proves “someone” wanted him in the WH very badly. And lots of people, like mccain, knew it was going to happen.

I don’t understand why the dems don’t let some of these charges stick and get rid of him and save their party. Really strange, the protect at all costs mentality the left has over BO. Very weird. Do they really threaten everyone to keep them in line?

Since the spin machine is desperately trying to sell the “Hey, it was just an isolated mistake made in 1991!” excuse, maybe this article ought to be promoted to Breaking News to counter their ongoing efforts.

One Secratary of State or one state legislature requiring a birth certificate in order to authorize the November ballot could upend the whole Democratic party.

The question, was Biden in on it, by forcing Obama’s hand with the Gay Marriage thing, knowing his numbers would tank. Then Bill gives his speech about having to raise taxes, which certainly didn’t help Obama’s case.

Not to mention he claims two Hawaiian hosptials, one of which he passed every school day and basketball practice from supposedly 5th grade to graduation. A five minute walk from home to school and the giant parking lot he walked through, uh huh, and if he’d been born there, his typical white granny would have pointed the very room out to him from their livingroom apartment window.

Thanks for the ping.

Front page on Drudge.

How do you think the media will spin this one?

Nothing yet on SF Chronicle or LA Times.

My predictions:
(1) “So? McCain was born abroad, too!”
(But McCain’s parents were both U.S. citizens and were abroad in the service of the defense of the United States.)
(2) “So? BO’s mother was an American, that was enough to make him an American citizen even if he was born abroad!”
(BO’s father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth and never became one.)
...
(3) It will eventually come out that Biden has been POTUS since January 20, 2009. Riots will ensue.
