If Anyone Denies That Obama Claimed Foreign Birth

The nice thing about the Wayback Machine is that eveery lie ever told on the Internet is preserved.  Dystel & Goederich Literary Management's bio on one of their clients:
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.
If you have ever written a bio for a publisher, you know these are not made up by them.  They start with your version and edit.  Maybe he was lying to make himself sound better, but if someone actually believed him, that's Obama's fault.

And this video.  "Now, three years ago I visited Kenya as the first sitting American
President to come from Kenya."

  1. Also, he attended Occidental College as a foreign student under the name of Barry Soetero. He received funds reserved for foreign students only. When these facts were disputed by supporters of the Oblather, the president of Occidental made statements to the public that they were indeed correct. And the president did show enrollment papers, and student photo ID card, in support of the president's statement. Further, shortly after his public statement, the president sat for an interview with a reporter with the Daily Breeze, a local newspaper.

    The student ID showed a full color close-up head shot, student name, and the words, 'Foreign Student' beneath the student's name.

    The public statement and interview are circa 2008.
