Well let's face it; we knew it all along.

It's just that everyone on both sides wanted to dance around it and never face it.

Doesn't it bother you in the least bit that this oh so simple issue could have been resovled and put to bed so very long ago, yet the "never let a good crisis go to waste" administration itself just keeps stirring the pot themselves? Possilby as a further distractions from the real problems.

If you will take the two minutes to read the article it starts out with the fact that Brietbart was NOT a birther. But yet here again we find a pubished document from the Presidents own publishing house that again puts forth the question' just who is this guy really?

Birth cert mess, ALL and I mean ALL of his educational records are sealed. What has he to fear?

Are you saying that this story - that his press agent made the posted bio - is false ?

So he lied to his agent as to where he was born. Who hasn't done that once in their life?

If you were to have paid a little more attention, you would have seen that this is not a story about someone accusing Obama of not being born in America.

Focus on that word "accuse" for a second.
That finding was of an old PR statement published for the purpose of promoting a booklet that Obama was about to write. It wasn't an accusation.

What it was, was the factual statement that Obama was born in Kenya. That's all. The statement wasn't written by a "birther", but by someone who very much was attempting to promote Obama's story.
It's not the PR guys fault that he told the truth.

So the answer to your question is that it's going to keep coming up as long as more things come up that show that Obama was born in Kenya and not in America, and I'll bet that what that means is that it's going to keep coming up over and over and over...

"An inconvenient truth" - Mr Obama has at various times claimed or at least let others claim for him that he was not born in the US.

By extension it has to be assumed that he made/allowed these claims to be made because he felt it was to his advantage to be thought to be born elsewhere.

From 2005: A former co-worker of Obama's disputes his description of his time at the firm. Who hasn't pumped up their accomplishments in a book?
Quote:
All of Barack’s embellishment serves a larger narrative purpose: to retell the story of the Christ’s temptation. The young, idealistic, would-be community organizer gets a nice suit, joins a consulting house, starts hanging out with investment bankers, and barely escapes moving into the big mansion with the white folks. Luckily, an angel calls, awakens his conscience, and helps him choose instead to fight for the people.

He indicated that while "almost nobody" wrote his or her own biography, the non-athletes in the booklet, whom "the agents deal[t] with on a daily basis," were "probably" approached to approve the text as presented.
Quote:
According to the booklet itself, the text was edited by Miriam Goderich, who has since become Dystel's partner at Dystel & Goderich, an agency founded in 1994. Breitbart News attempted to reach Goderich by telephone several times over several days. Her calls are screened by an automated service that requires callers to state their name and company, which we did. She never answered.
The author won't even claim responsibility, why would anyone else believe it?
