Obama Conspiracy Theories conducted an informal poll a few weeks back, asking randomly selected people from my workplace where President George W. Bush was born. Most believed he was born in Texas, and over 80% got the answer wrong. Why is that?
It turns out that George W. Bush hushed up his real birthplace, as exposed in a 2002 article, Signs Say What Bush Won’t, in the New York Times. Oh my!
Says the Times:
Mr. Bush’s official White House biography, which can be found on the Web at whitehouse.gov/president/gwbbio, contains many facts about the president, among them the names of his pets, India, Spot and Barney. But in dealing with a rather basic fact, his birth, it leaves out that he was born in New Haven [Connecticut]. All it says is: ”President Bush was born July 6, 1946 and grew up in Midland and Houston, Texas.”
Bush’s dirty little secret: he’s a damn Yankee!
