    Either Miriam Goderich is lying about making a fact-checking mistake or she mistakenly wrote that he was born in Kenya. Why would she lie about that? Looks like I've just blown your BS story out of the water.

    Wait a tick... what if people have been meaning to say, 'Obama is a Keynesian', but they've had spellckeck bugger it up?
    There's nothing wrong with the dream, my friend, the problem lies with the dreamer.

    Why would she lie to protect her client, who is now president? I wonder.

    IF YOU WANT A LITERARY AGENCY THAT WILL LIE FOR YOU OUTRAGEOUSLY TRY DYSTEL AND GOEDERICH

    A limp statement was squirted out yesterday after the Breitbart item appeared that a woman who worked at the time as a low level assistant at Acton and Dystel, then Obama’s agent (and is now the Goederich who is Dystel’s partner) was now taking full responsibility for making an “error.”

    As someone who has run a number of top bestseller publishers, I think this is an amazing MIRACLE.

    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.

    After all where do the bios come from? We don’t make them up. And neither did Dystel & Goederich. They come from the authors, like Obama. No one has ever invented a detail like that, and the authors usually review them and scream like hell if we get them wrong.

    Can Dystel and Goedrich show us the correction appeal letter they got from Obama about the Kenya birth in over 10 years of using this bio? Or any other incident from any other publisher or agent that is similar to this “error?”

    I really don’t care where Obama was born. The continued degeneration of the press in passing on hilarious nonsense as fact is a lot more serious problem. Give Dystel & Goederich the Rose Mary Woods Memorial Award for the Most Absurd Lie to Protect a President of the Year.

    But when Bush lied about his national guard history, that was a big deal. Okay.

    Dan Rather and the leftist media threw a shitfit over Bush allegedly lying over his national guard background. He didn't and Rather was fired in disgrace.

    Obama lies, or seems to, about being Kenyan and literally no one investigates it outside of Breitbart (and people like Guynemer slander Breitbart as being a birther for doing it).

    It helped that Rather lied. You are really, really stupid. It has to be said. You are just a very dumb individual, with a troubling lack of logical reasoning capability and a slipping grasp of basic historical facts. You have engaged in four different arguments today and were not even close to making an intelligent point in any one of them. You misunderstood others' arguments with such regularity that your literacy is frankly in question. Everyone in this forum is dumber because you post in it. I'm sorry, but it's true.

    I'm not sure if you even know what "lying" means. Maybe you're not in a position to assess whether other people are literate.

    The most serious defects in the reporting and production of the September 8 Segment were:

    1. The failure to obtain clear authentication of any of the Killian documents from any document examiner;
    2. The false statement in the September 8 Segment that an expert had authenticated the Killian documents when all he had done was authenticate one signature from one document used in the Segment;
    3. The failure of 60 Minutes Wednesday management to scrutinize the publicly available, and at times controversial, background of the source of the documents, retired Texas Army National Guard Lieutenant Colonel Bill Burkett;
    4. The failure to find and interview the individual who was understood at the outset to be Lieutenant Colonel Burkett’s source of the Killian documents, and thus to establish the chain of custody;
    5. The failure to establish a basis for the statement in the Segment that the documents "were taken from Colonel Killian’s personal files";
    6. The failure to develop adequate corroboration to support the statements in the Killian documents and to carefully compare the Killian documents to official TexANG records, which would have identified, at a minimum, notable inconsistencies in content and format;
    7. The failure to interview a range of former National Guardsmen who served with Lieutenant Colonel Killian and who had different perspectives about the documents;
    8. The misleading impression conveyed in the Segment that Lieutenant Strong had authenticated the content of the documents when he did not have the personal knowledge to do so;
    9. The failure to have a vetting process capable of dealing effectively with the production speed, significance and sensitivity of the Segment; and
    10. The telephone call prior to the Segment’s airing by the producer of the Segment to a senior campaign official of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry — a clear conflict of interest — that created the appearance of a political bias.
    ...

    . In the 60 Minutes segment, anchor Dan Rather stated: "We are told [the documents] were taken from Lieutenant Colonel Killian’s personal files"[10] and incorrectly asserted that "the material" had been authenticated by experts retained by CBS.[11]
    He lied. And you are a retard.

    You know, I never actually thought of that. It makes sense. So, the Rupugs are saying that a child born on US soil to those dreaded Illegals would qualify as president, but not someone born abroad to an American mother? Please clarify.
    There's nothing wrong with the dream, my friend, the problem lies with the dreamer.

    THE ISSUE IS NOT WHERE HE WAS BORN.

    No one, including Breitbart, is arguing he was born anywhere else but Hawaii. You people are so god damn STUPID.

    The issue is WHY HE LIED ABOUT BEING BORN IN KENYA.

    Perhaps it is the same reason Elizabeth Warren lied about being INDIAN.

    DOES THIS COMPUTE TO YOU ****ING IDIOTS.

    That's simple: being an American from Africa is better than being an African-American born in America, which carries a stigma of proclivity to violent crime and low IQ.

    Actually, I think it's probably because it sounds more exotic.

    Being Kenyan doesn't exactly give you "British accent" IQ boosts in America. It's definitely more exotic.
