Breitbart.com illustrates how poorly the press vetted Obama in 2008 – again.
“Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”
“Born in Kenya” – he’s always been a liar; and now his agent has to lie to cover up for him. Using race to get ahead one way or another – just par for his course.
The agent finds a sympathetic ear in ABC news:
“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.
Anytime my picture was published somewhere that I knew – I checked it and the story around it for accuracy. Did Obama not do this? Was he that lazy or is the agent lying?
The comments at ABC are interesting – almost none of them are buying this load either. One of them posted a link to the Wayback machine:
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.
There’s that Kenyan birth thing again. She just kept making the mistake?
I wonder what Breitbart.com is going to do for an encore. If they run the site like Breitbart did – this is just the lead-in to something bigger.
UPDATE: Gateway Pundit has it good as well with a screenshot of the Sunday Standard article discussing Kenyan-born Senate Candidate Barack Obama’s chances after Jack Ryan dropped from the race. How did so many of these articles get missed?
