The Mystery of Obama’s Kenyan Birth
05/18/2012 2 Comments
I have always been interested in the issue of where the O was born, but tried to keep an open mind until there was more of a smoking gun than a fake birth certificate.
That said, I have always been puzzled as to why the public did not have access to his academic records? My view is that he registered as foreign student from Kenya or Indonesia to get an affirmative action qualification. Now Roger Simon at PJ Media is investigated the mystery. Here is a summary from Power Line:
Over at PJ Media, CEO Roger Simon, a mystery writer by trade, put his mind to the puzzle and came up with an intriguing theory. Perhaps Obama had a tangible incentive to pass himself off as African, rather than merely African-American. Perhaps the explanation goes back to his college and law school days, which remain weirdly shrouded in mystery, deemed off-limits by liberal reporters and editors. Perhaps Obama took advantage of a scholarship–or, I would add, an affirmative action opportunity–that was available only to those born in Africa. Perhaps, in other words, Obama was like Elizabeth Warren, dishonestly checking a diversity box to get ahead. There would be no down-side at all, up until the moment when Obama decided he might run for president.
Locally, Martin Light is blogging on the issues at Light on Nevada County.
My question is: Regardless of where a person is born, if they think of themselves as a Kenyan, do they continue to think like a Kenyan, rather than an American? Just wondering.
