The Vetting – Exclusive – Obama's Literary Agent in 1991 Booklet: 'Born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii'.

Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation. He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White.

So… anyone who knows anything about the literary biz knows that these biographical sketches are almost always written by the “author” themselves, and then cut and pasted into the pamphlet, anthology or whatever publication needs them.

To suggest that Barack Obama did not know that his biographical sketch portrayed him as being born in Kenya is ludicrous.

Which is precisely why you will see the Left go into contortions to claim he never saw it.

Since any reasonable person would understand immediately that Obams is almost certainly the writer of that bio, (and it sure sounds like Mr. “I, me, mine” to me) the only question that can reasonably be asked now is:

Why would Barack Obama in 1991 have wanted to be portrayed as having been born in Kenya?

Well, a couple of logical explanations come to mind.

1. He was born in Kenya.
2. He thought lying would sell more books.
3. He thought lying would make him more cool.
4. He thought lying would give him some sort of diversity cred.

Now, I will join the conservative chorus and say “I’ve never really been a birther.” But that’s not really fair. I don’t really have an opinion on where Obama was born, because it’s not really an issue for me beyond the obvious lack of vetting that was done on this man. His mother was an American citizen, never renounced that citizenship and Obama was raised in the USA for most of his life.

Although I’ve never really cared about the “birther” issue, I would not bat an eye to discover that Obama was born in Kenya. He lies so easily about everything else, and his supporters move heaven and earth to make his lies “true” anyway, that it really doesn’t matter.

It’s not Obama’s physical birthplace that bothers me. It’s his ideological one. And that birthplace was squarely in the middle of America’s pseudo-intellectual left wing moonbat reservation.

And that’s the real problem I have with the man.
