The first birther was Barack Obama – by Taxpayer Tom

Birther hypocrisy? Hillary cannot have a memory this short because this is not news.

An early claim that Obama was not born in the USA was made by Obama’s literary agent in 1991 in marketing material describing the author of Obama’s first autobiography as,

“Born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

A claim good for selling books in 1991, but not convenient for one running for the presidency 16 years later.

Surely Obama was aware of this, a lie not corrected until 2007 as the presidential campaign for 2008 was getting started.
