Lou Dobbs Mystified by Apparent 'Taboo' on Barack Obama's 'Kenyan Birth'

For me, it's not whether Obama was born in Kenya. The question is why was he so excited to trumpet his purported African origins. Mark Steyn and others have destroyed progressives on this ("The Great Barry"), and of course it is a taboo to discuss it --- for fear of being smeared as a "birther." But too many people are asking questions (see WND, for example, "Arizona Flooded by Emails on Obama Eligibility"). I think Obama should be at least forced to explain it, his fascination with exploiting his Kenyan origins.

 And see Joseph Farah, "I'm with Lou Dobbs":

Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs says he’s mystified by an apparent “taboo” Republicans and the national media have as they continue to bury any question or news story probing the eligibility of Barack Obama to be president of the United States.

I’m with Lou Dobbs.

Last Friday night, on “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on the Fox Business Network, the veteran broadcaster was having a political discussion with National Research founder Adam Geller.

“Let me ask you a question,” Dobbs said to Geller. “Why aren’t the Republicans talking about what was all over Drudge, which is from 1991 to 2007, a publisher’s document talking about him being born in Kenya? I mean, there’s like a taboo about it. How did this wall come up around that?”

He was referring to a WND story linked by the Drudge Report showing that Obama apparently never objected to being depicted as Kenya-born by his own publishers and literary agents – right up through 2007....

Dobbs has shown great courage and independence in raising this issue for years. He probably left CNN under pressure because of his persistence in raising it.
