Oh, please! "It's the dog ate my homework" of literary errors. How stupid do these Obama sycophants think we are? So, the new authentic fake birth certificate conjured up after Trump forced the President's hand is now morphing into some simple literary error.

Well, Obama, if this is what you're relying on to save your sorry black a**, you're in more trouble than we've ever imagined.

Yep, he did. And he further "gilded the lily" by glamorizing this skank as an "anthropologist"...

Publishers and literary agents routinely get biographical info from the authors. Indeed, its usually a requirement of the royalty contract or agreement. Never heard of a publisher making it up. Not once.

Of course she is lying. In 1991 the consequence of listing himself as being born in Kenya at that phase of his life did not register with him.If indeed he was not born in Kenya, she and he probably concluded that the more exotic they could make his bio the more marketable the literary tripe they were trying to peddle to pseudo sophisticates that buy this crap.In the strange world of left wing politics yesterday’s lie when uncovered becomes today’s fact checking “error”

Sometimes my comments are like a snowball. They build from one place to another, and free republic is the final expression of it...
Zip had this post: http://weaselzippers.us/2012/05/18/muslim-brotherhood-cleric-voting-for-liberal-or-secular-president-is-un-islamic; my comment:

That guy in the picture, Hafwit Hegazy, looks like the perfect guy the the libs would want to be president of the USA. Yes, born in the USA is apparently not a requirement. My hotair comment on the Wright Ad flap:
It’s a shame that they don’t run these Wright ads. Mr. “GOD DAMN AMERICA” fits right along with O refusing to put his hand on his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance. An overt display, intentional for the leftist anti-Americans to see… so he gets the nomination.
Interesting on the Kenyan birth question. At the Real Science blog (http://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2012/05/18/is-obama-a-birther/) it was noted that a 2004 news report lists O as born in Kenya: http://web.archive.org/web/20040627142700/eastandard.net/headlines/news26060403.htm, my comment:

Incredible. This man is Manchurian, not Kenyan. How did this obvious Trojan Horse get through the gates? I know that the libs knew it, and wanted it. In Barry’s own words: “Isn’t a man with the name of Barack Hussein Obama the best antidote for GW Bush?”
If the Dems could have resurrected Stalin, they would have pushed him to be potus. The most foreign, the most anti-American candidate that you could ever have possibly conceived of getting elected, that’s what the libs wanted. And they wanted to rub conservatives noses in it, in the POS. They’ve done that. Donate$.

I am just now listening to today’s Rush.
A caller is questioning his take on the book.
He thinks the writer just wanted to make Obozo look more exotic and interesting by saying “born in Kenya”.
Rush is apparently not a birther, as he added something
in effect as “we know he was not born in Kenya”.

As for myself, I have no idea where he was born.

The major flaw in this lame “explanation” is that the publisher continued to use the “born in Kenya” bio on its website for 16 MORE YEARS — until 2007, when Obama announced he was running for President. It was then changed to “born in Hawaii.”

Horse hockey, maybe not Kenya, but he can't prove he was born here.

And the reports now say this was not a one -time incident. Rather, the publishers continued to say “Kenya” from 1991 to 2007, 16 years of “Kenya”.
Which they say only stopped as the 2008 campaign drew nigh. Wonderfully convenient , that

I like the way the Canadians handle international unknowns, such as Poland. They leave the person locked up alone in the airport until they go nuts. Then they send the Mounties in to taser him on the floor until dead. Down here we put them in the White hut.

Totally agreed. Here’s the question to ask.... “If the publisher or literary agent was the one who wrote this, can we please see the formal document that requested a correction?”

How could Goderich have made a mistake in 1991 when Obama’s birthplace was not an issue? No one pointed out her mistake then since no one had foreseen that Obama would run for president.

Yes, he did. And he was lying.

This is what he's been trying to cover up the whole time. Not that he was born in Kenya but that when he was younger, he used to lie about being born in Kenya.

Looks like Obama lied about being born in Kenya for years, for gain. We gotta get his college applications, I wonder if he put this down on them too?

This is so ironic- lots of people thought he was lying about being born in Hawaii!

“Publishers and literary agents routinely get biographical info from the authors. Indeed, its usually a requirement of the royalty contract or agreement. Never heard of a publisher making it up. Not once.”

That’s right. So the real dynamite here is that Barry was puffing up his resume to make the book more attractive to publishers. That’s what we need to focus on. Trying to prove he was born in Kenya is a bridge too far. Not going to happen. But now that the agent is talking the lies are coming out. Now watch the White Hut stonewall this because there is more than smoke here.

The other interesting avenue to investigate is he that he is still listed as a client of this agent. How much is she being paid and what is she doing on his behalf? This is clearly a payoff for her silence. She has the goods...

What a BS excuse that it was a literary error. So you mean from 1991 till 2007 (16 whole years) no one caught that error? Knowing as much of a narcissist as Obama is, he would have read this back in 1991 and would have corrected this error as he would have not wanted to be looked upon as a Kenyan if he was an American. Funny how right before his presidential campaign all of a sudden they make this change? I think it’s no coincidence.

"This is what he's been trying to cover up the whole time. Not that he was born in Kenya but that when he was younger, he used to lie about being born in Kenya."

That's it. IF he is going to lie about where is was born then he will lie about what being "flexible" with the Russians means.

Now we need to investigate the cover-up. How much was this agent being paid and what did she do for the hush money? I see no reason for her to still be listed as an agent. He doesn't need her for anything now that he is POTUS.

His big problem will be folks are going to start to demand to see his college records, to verify which of his lies is true.

And it will very likely turn out that he peddled his Kenyan birth to get some kind of scholarship BY FRAUD.

Like Fauxahontas Warren, but a million times worse, since Obama has the nuclear football.

BINGO! Obama's problem is not where he was born, but his past web of lies about it. This is why he's hidden all of his past records - all of those lies are in writing. Obama's whole life is a lie.

"This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me--an agency assistant at the time," Goderich wrote in an emailed statement to Yahoo News. "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. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more."

HAHAHAHAHAAAA!

The media will sweep it under the rug and so far the Republicans in office are cowards in that they never pressed the issue and why would they start now? Republicans in charge are always on the defense and never go on the offense and attack.
