*Editors’ note: Twitchy is NOT a Birther site. As is the case with Breitbart.com, we believe this story is important because it illustrates both a lack of mainstream media responsibility and Barack Obama’s penchant for embellishment and story-changing.

Note from Senior Management:

Andrew Breitbart was never a “Birther,” and Breitbart News is a site that has never advocated the narrative of “Birtherism.” In fact, Andrew believed, as we do, that President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961.

Yet Andrew also believed that the complicit mainstream media had refused to examine President Obama’s ideological past, or the carefully crafted persona he and his advisers had constructed for him.

It is for that reason that we launched “The Vetting,” an ongoing series in which we explore the ideological background of President Obama (and other presidential candidates)–not to re-litigate 2008, but because ideas and actions have consequences.

It is also in that spirit that we discovered, and now present, the booklet described below–one that includes a marketing pitch for a forthcoming book by a then-young, otherwise unknown former president of the Harvard Law Review. 

It is evidence–not of the President’s foreign origin, but that Barack Obama’s public persona has perhaps been presented differently at different times.


Joel Pollak, Breitbart.com’s Editor-in-Chief, has been relentlessly dedicated in his pursuit of the truth about Barack Obama. While the media has failed to vet the president, Pollak and the rest of the Breitbart Brigade are chipping away at Barack Obama’s façade. Pollak’s most recent piece nails the media and the president with one damning stone.

If you haven’t done so already, be sure to read the whole thing. Critics will croak about how this story demonstrates once and for all that the people who oppose Obama are crazy birther conspiracy theorists. Let them. Because while they’re out there whining and pointing fingers, real citizen journalists like those at Breitbart.com are wading through the muck that the mainstream media don’t deign to touch, and in doing so, they’re changing the political landscape and ushering in an Age of Accountability.

Breitbart.com Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro wasted no time in calling out the media for their willful incompetence:

Naturally, Twitter lit up. And it shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
