David PATERSON Ponders scenario in which prez ‘got away’ with birth fraud
Democrat personality David Paterson, former governor of New York and now a talk-radio host on WOR in New York City, has suggested Barack Obama could be ineligible for the Oval Office and “got away” with it.
And Paterson compared Obama’s actions to those of Richard Nixon, which he likened to treason.
On his show yesterday, he was asserting, along with NBC Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd, that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney should have distanced himself more from developer Donald Trump and his doubts about Obama’s eligibility.
“Even if he wasn’t born in the United States at this point,” Paterson said. “It’s kind of like he got away with it.”
He continued, “A lot of people get away with a lot of things.”
Paterson compared Obama’s actions to those of President Richard Nixon.
“We learned later that Nixon spied on Johnson’s Paris peace talks,” Paterson said. “That was actually an act of … uh … I mean it was against the interests of the U.S. government. You’ve got to say that before you would say it’s treason. But he got away with it. Decided it wasn’t a good thing to bring up at that particular time. Not only did he get away with it, he won the election.”
An apology for the “mistake” in Barack Obama’s official biography that said he was ‘Born in Kenya’ has conveniently been rushed out onto the world scene in rapid-response to the bombshell published today atBreitbart.com and made truly viral at the Drudge Report, along with a new media fiction theorizing that the “mistake” may well have given birth to ‘birther rumors’ in the first place.
Miriam Goderich came forward as the editor of the bio, claiming to remember the distant circumstances, and apologized in a press release for what she claims was “nothing more than a fact checking error” committed back in 1991 by publishing Barack Obama’s birthplace as “Kenya,” and further mentioning that he had been raised in both Indonesia and Hawaii (the mistake was, however, apparently not corrected until 2007). Goderich quickly exonerated the sitting president in the statement, adding, “There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii.”
Breitbart.com reported their attempt to contact Goderich for comment over several days, but received no response. The site followed up on the report, adding that “Goderich’s statement fails to explain why the ‘fact checking error’ persisted for sixteen years, through at least three different versions of Jane Dystel’s website, and through at least four different versions of Obama’s biography”– and indeed, for two years while Barack Obama was Senator.
Yet, Miriam Goderich was quick to come forward once the news broke. The White House has not yet issued an official response, as of the time of writing.
