I have every right to question the validity of this woman's claim based on the fact that she is a committed financial supporter of the president. That is not a witch hunt my friend. It is a fact which I have proven with links provided.

She chose to go public with her owning up of her claim to have made a "mistake."


It is a witch hunt.

You are saying this lady is lying soley on the fact for who she supports. You are saying she can't be trusted soley based on her political ideology.

It's people like you that damage our country...you are so partisan that you can't even trust anyone who has different political leanings then you.

The fact that she chose to go public with her mistake givers her more integrity than someone claiming she can't be trusted because of who she supports.

I guess you have trouble with reading comprehension. Work a little harder before you post next time.


Yes, I have a lot of trouble with reading comprehension. While reading your text, I fail to comprehend how a financial contribution could possibly be any kind of evidence in regards to a persons birth place. I guess you have reading comprehension skills that far outperform normal humans. Only a MENSA member can possibly connect the dots in this story. Hence you must be a member of MENSA


See how I tried to copy your level of reading comprehension to prove your a member of MENSA?



See this is where you fail, and it is in an epic way.

I never made the claim that this pamphlet proves anything about President Obama's birth place.



Then your saying the explanation for the mistake on the pamphlet, which doesn't prove anything by itself, is proof of Obama's birthplace?

I was not referencing the pamphlet. I was referencing Miriam's public statement about her fact checking error.



Really dude, read the thread before you post anything else.

No that's not what I am saying.



Then I am legitimately confused, what is your point, your conclusion? Because it just seems like your implying things you WANT to say, but refuse to type.

Read the thread. I have made my point numerous times. I don't appreciate you coming into the thread this late and hurling false accusations at me. You need to bring yourself up to speed. It is not my job to restate that which I have already stated.

You should apologize.

really, even if you are a republican, you are just another demoniser like the "birther" abusers

I say half-retarded because he is a Sheriff who thinks he can police the entire country, instead of his own county. If a Janitor accuses the Dean of a University of being a communist (random negative connotation), what do you think would happen to the Janitor?

I say 80 year old because yes, those are usually the more racist citizens among us. Its like cops, the older cops are the ones that punch people is cuffs, pepper spray random people, etc... Talk to your grandfather and ask what he thinks about black people. I'm not saying that the opinions of the elderly are of no use, simply that they are way more racist than someone born, say, post 1990. You never see the YOUNG republicans claim anything about Obama's birthplace, its always the old guys who peddle racist comments and deny their racism.

And how am I compared to a 'Birther' exactly? The only thing I demonize is aggressive ignorance, of which my fellow Republicans desperately need a cure to.

I know plenty of 80 year olds who aren't racist- that is like my stereotyping all blacks as criminals because they have a higher incarcertation rate- it is just a form of abuse, same as the "half retarded" comment.

These sorts of discussions should be encouraged in a free country, the ridiculous defence of a leader, often because he happens to be half black (not that you were doing this) is a disgrace to freedom- people get vetted working as bank cashiers, my wife lost her job ten years ago because she was a month out on how long she had been unemployed for, it should be a hundred times more intense for the likes of Obama!

Good points here: So this idea Barack was born in Kenya was just "invented" ?



This confession rings false to the point of preposterous for any number of reasons. Let us start with the obvious. At the time, 1991, the Acton & Dystel agency listed 90 clients, Obama among its least significant. How likely is it that Goderich would have remembered enough about a 1991 "error" to know it was hers, especially since it went uncorrected through several revisions until changed in 2007? To make this claim credible, there would have to be an existing paper trail leading to an Obama submission in which he lists an Hawaiian birth. I am confident that there is no such submission.

Former publisher Tom Lipscomb does not buy Goderich's explanation for a New York minute.
"As someone who has run a number of top bestseller publishers,
I think this is an amazing MIRACLE," writes Lipscomb emphatically on Power Line.

"It is the ONLY case I have ever heard of in which an editorial assistant INVENTED
a biographical detail. I have heard of typos, wrong dates, misspellings of names.

But to pick a really weird country of origin like Kenya for an author?"

NEVER

I apologize I didn't read 70+ pages of comments before I read your recent ones.

But you could have just typed out your conclusion instead of NOT SAYING IT once again. Its all good though, you don't really need a conclusion when you don't have any evidence.

If it was simple a simple fact checking error you'd think that she would be more forthcoming about details of how the mistake was made and allowed to persist for so long, especially considering the possible scenarios.


An error would be like the wrong city..or maybe the wrong State..maybe.. but the wrong Country? Obama didn't read his own bio for 16 years and then read it and said "wow we need to change that I'm running for POTUS now"?

welcome to the internet, where censorship #ing dies.

I know TONS of un-racist old people as well. But are you telling me that the elderly AREN'T legitimately more racist than the current generation? It's not quite the same you know, when you compare blacks and criminality to elderly people and racism. Society creates criminals, but it ALLOWS racism. Those elderly don't see themselves as racist because they lived through Jim Crowe, segregation, etc... To them, they are the most unracist people in the world, even though they consider minority races inferior to them.

Hell, my own father, WHO IS CUBAN, has this kind of World View. How many racist Cubans do you know?

Also, sorry to hear about your wife losing her job ten years ago. President Obama should have done something about it back then. Why didn't he?

Well, looks like this cat is out of the bag.


Its simple, Obama cant keep his lies straight. And those who promote him
will continue to find themselves mopping up after him!!!


The fact that the embellishment has surfaced to bite the president over 20 years later is an example of what happens when one cannot keep lies straight.

If Obama did not provide his biographical information to his then literary agent, then who did? Why was the false information not corrected for 16 years, by which time the impression that Obama was born overseas would be an impediment to his being elected president?

Who is Barack Obama, anyway? That is not a frivolous question. One gets the impression that the public persona of the president is a carefully constructed façade designed to enhance his reputation rather that to enlighten people about the man who has been president for over three years.
Yahoo News



If Obama did not provide his biographical information to his then literary agent, then who did?


Who is Barack Obama anyways???


Exactly, something I have been dwelling on since my last post, his books with his fictional life story, the facts are starting to come out, even though I always was suspicious of him, I never released the extent he went to invent and sell himself, with the help of his buddy Ayers they created Obama the fictional character, to get one of their own in office .

Wow it is true, all true,

Will this thread break all records? I can't believe the same people are still ....well, barking thus bumping this thread!

Anyway. I just read this somewhere and it poses an interesting question and suggestive answer.

Was Obama anyone special back in 1991?
Because according to Obama, as noble as his efforts were....he was just a black Harvard graduate trying to restore a black community.
Not knocking this at all. I think it was great.

The question is.....unless Obama had a PR team, literary agents requests biographies from authors/clients. Obama wasn't that well known back then so it's not unreasonable to assume Obama himself handed over this background information including his birth place.

And the fact that this wasn't challenged or even spotted in 2007 is very VERY interesting unto itself.

Here he is in 1993. My point to this video is, he is virtually an unknown
