    About the Brietbart story-

    Obama was listed by his literary agent in his bio from the 90’s as being born in Kenya. In 2007 (Guess what was happening with Obama then?) it was changed to Hawaii. Now the Breitbart people think he was born in Hawaii and so do I, but what did he lie and allow himself to be promulgated as being born in Kenya until he ran for President? Because it sounded more exotic? Because he got aid to college as a foreign student even though he wasn’t one? Because narcissists habitually lie?

    As a commentator on another political site amusingly  noted,
    “Obama’s birthplace ‘evolved'”

     Too bad we won’t see Steve Martin re-doing the tune to mock Obama, isn’t it?
