Earlier today Breitbart.com announced during the vetting they had uncovered a pamphlet went back to 1991 Obama’s publishing agent Acton & Dyste. The President’s Bio said that
Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”
The booklet, which was distributed to “business colleagues” in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.
It also promotes Obama’s anticipated first book, Journeys in Black and White–which Obama abandoned, later publishing Dreams from My Father instead.
It didn’t take long for the cover-up start after Breitbart.com released a 1991 promotional booklet produced by the agency, Acton & Dyste advertising booklet that strongly indicated someone had told the company that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. Within a couple hours ABC news was reporting this from By Dylan Stableford at Yahoo!.
A possible source of the so-called “birther” issue–or at least a potential cause of the rumors that have dogged President Barack Obama–has been identified.
Obama’s former literary agency misidentified his birthplace as Kenya while trying to promote the then-Harvard Law grad as an author in 1991.
According to a promotional booklet produced by the agency, Acton & Dystel, to showcase its roster of writers, Obama was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”
Miriam Goderich edited the text of the bio; she is now a partner at theDystel & Goderich agency, which lists Obama as one of its current clients.
“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.
It sounds good, but how many people can remember how they dealt with a specific, routine job detail 20 years ago, they just happen to be a little bit out of the norm?
Miriam Goderich’s answer brings up several questions.
Where did she get the idea that Obama was born in Kenya? It would seem reasonable to me that if you going to write a bio about someone you simply call them and ask them the pertinent questions. Little things like were you born, in most cases, that would mean what city or what state. Obviously someone provided her with some basic information, it seems strange that his birthplace was omitted from the basic information.
Standard practice would be to have the client proof the information so that any mistakes can be corrected before something goes into print. Unlike today’s computers where minor mistake can be fixed with a few mouse clicks, back in the days of printing presses you were stuck with what you published. The only alternative was for someone to pay to produce the product twice. Paying both the flawed original and the reprint. There would’ve been nothing salvageable out of the first printing. Everything would have to be redone from scratch, set up, labor, and a whole projects worth of paper and ink. Printing companies were meticulous about getting sign offs and approvals and they triple checked everything before it went to press. It is possible that this just happens to be a mistake, but the odds are remote.
In fact the odds of it being a mistake are just about as remote as the odds against the American people finding out for sure if it’s a mistake or not. There is more than enough questionable stuff in Barack Obama’s background to justify investigation. The media can find out that Romney gave the kid a haircut 45 years ago but can’t seem to find it anything of substance about Barack Obama.
Something ain’t right..
Something hasn't been "right" since the day America voted Obama into Office.
America will need an entire new dictionary after Obama is voted out of office November 2012. Not in my lifetime has a group of people been called "birthers" - an identity pinned on Americans who question where Obama was born. And, they question how a man could be "President of the U.S." when both his parents were NOT American citizens. They wonder why the media did not vet this man before falling down to worship him. How is it that Obama was allowed to campaign for the highest office in the land, given approval by the Democrat Party, without FIRST presenting his records, such as, college transcripts, birth certificate, and all documentation that would reveal this man's background? He wrote two books about himself and apparently, that was "good enough" to get him into the White House.
An autobiography is not going to be as truthful as a biography written by a third party. If I write a book about my life, I can guarantee it will be flowing with good things about myself and all those mistakes and hidden ghosts in my closet will be left out of that book. After all, why would I inform the world about things in my past that I'm not proud of doing? And, who writes two books about themselves, BEFORE ever doing anything in life that contributed to the betterment of this world? Let me guess. A man who is being primed for the White House, by his mentors, would have assistance in writing autobiographies for future reference, when Americans began asking questions about this man's past. All that is needed is one "good" book - forget about seeking information about the man's' past through paper trails and legal documentation.
As I told my friend Grumpy earlier today, I don't care if Obama was born in a frog pond, or shipped to the USA by way of a flying saucer. The issue today is not about his birth, as he already slipped through the cracks four years ago. Today, the issue is what he has done since entering the White House. Congress has low approval ratings because they have given this man free reign to ignore the U.S. Constitution; allowing him to by-pass Congress; passing Executive Orders whenever it suits him; forcing the United States to accept the friendships of questionable organizations and countries, while ignoring and mocking long-standing allies of the United States; suing individual states of America; giving terrorists organizations, such as, the Muslim Brotherhood, giving them legitimacy by inviting them to the White House for a cup of tea; allowing the PLO/PA flag to fly on American soil in Washington, DC, when this organization is responsible for bombing Israel; hiring over 35 Czars, many with criminal and/or questionable backgrounds (like himself); and, while the list is endless, there is more to come if re-elected, as he promised the Russian president he (Obama) would be more "flexible" when he is re-elected. Does Congress have a clue what Obama meant when speaking to the Russian on an "open" mic?!
TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS in debt; a healthcare plan that now sits in the Supreme Court, for yet another "questionable" non-Constitutional plan of Obama's; worst economy since the Great Depression; Americans out of work, losing their homes, and the cost of bread rising higher than a package of active yeast.
Let me ask one question. Why did Obama and Michelle both turn in their law licenses? As any attorney will tell you, it takes years of study to pass a law exam. Having worked for attorneys in the past, I could share some stories of their financial sacrifices, burning the candle at both ends studying and working part time jobs in order to reach their goals. If an attorney decides to change professions in mid-stream, they maintain their law license - they don't turn it in, as they worked too hard for it and may decide to return to law at some later date. I also know that normally, when someone is forced to turn in a license, it usually means they were found guilty of either lying or, to avoid a lawsuit from a Complaint filed by a client, etc. I'm not saying this is what happened to the Obama, but considering the many actions by Obama since he graduated from Harvard should raise white flags!
Everyone has their own list of issues that are a continuation of Obama policies that lead America on the wrong path; those issues far out-weigh the unanswered questions of Obama's background. When one looks at what Obama has done these past 4 years, there is no need to seek answers from a belated background check - America, we have our answers!
Our answers are in the playboy-style, Hollywood wanna-be, lavish spending and vacations, of the Obama family, at the expense and on the backs of America. Let's put an end to this charade in November.
