Just Because Hillary’s a Birther, That Doesn’t Make Her Racist!

Okay, yes, Hillary Clinton’s people started the birther movement, raising unfounded suspicions that Barack Obama was born in Kenya and not the U.S. Sure, Hillary’s chief campaign strategist suggested in 2007 that Obama was “not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and his values,” and thought Hillary could emphasize that by making sure “every speech… contain the line that you were born in the middle of America.” And all right, the former editor of McClatchy says Clinton’s evil pet gnome Sidney Blumenthal urged him to investigate whether Obama was from Kenya.

But that in no way means Hillary Clinton is racist!

    My complaint about the whole “birther controversy” is that it missed the real controversy. It wasn’t that Obama was “born in Kenya”, it was that Obama lied that he was “born in Kenya” for over 10 years. It matters little where Obama was born if one of his parents was a US citizen (making him a US citizen) and lived at least 14 years in the US (the second part of eligibility for running for President), it matters that Obama lied frequently and openly (about who he was). Obama had showed that he was expert at lying, and lying big.

      If my memory serves me, BCF posted here Andrew Breitbart’s unearthing of the publisher’s original blurb for “Dreams From My Father” which attributes Kenyan birth to Obama. Breitbart felt that Obama had falsified his birth to gain certain favors, advantages and privileges in his application to Harvard Law School and he carried this over to his publisher because the statute of limitations had not yet tolled. I suggest that our host check his archives on this.

    Before this election is over with, I want just one question asked. Who gave the “Stand Down” order during the Benghazi attack?
