Over at the Barackryphal blog, they’re wondering exactly when and how that “born in Kenya” story got started. As for me, I have this fantasy of meeting Sarah Obama and asking her when she learned that she had a new grandson.
Turns out that this is known, and the information traces back to the long before anybody was doing that “born in Africa” stuff.
Six months after they wed, another letter arrived in Kenya, announcing the birth of Barack Hussein Obama, born Aug. 4, 1961. Despite her husband’s continued anger, Sarah Obama said in a recent interview, she “was so happy to have a grandchild in the U.S.”
The Internet is so polluted with Obama conspiracy dittosites that it’s extremely difficult to tease out this old stuff.
