Conservatives claim that Obama manipulated his Kenyan roots to gain attention

Not all of Team Breitbart’s revelations have been election-deciders, but they have often been stuff that a simple Google would have uncovered.

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 [...]
