    1. The Birth Certificate

    “Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961 in Hawaii, according to both the official birth certificate released by the White House and confirmed in archival newspaper articles from August 5th. But the Truthers (as those who don’t believe Obama was born in America are called) think it’s all a hoax.”

    Mistake is highlighted in bold.

    Candidate errors:

    “The latest bizarre rumor: Obama wants to “bring 100 Muslims to the U.S.” to help the takeover and ensure his legacy. Mother Jones mocked the theory in a story that determined one pro-Israel activist came up with the theory based on no actual evidence.”

    Shouldn’t that be 100 million?

    “Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961 in Hawaii, according to both the official birth certificate released by the White House and confirmed in archival newspaper articles from August 5th. But the Truthers (as those who don’t believe Obama was born in America are called) think it’s all a hoax.”

    Two things here, an Aug 5 birth announcement sounds about a week to soon given Aug 4, 1961 was a Friday and they’re called “Birthers” not “Truthers”.
