I guess he was trying to say that he has Kenyan root, and misspoke.

A lot of people will say they are Irish because their parent/parents were from Ireland.

By that logic too, he is Kenyan.

DAMMIT.

I knew when MSNBC's rep didn't show up for the secret librul-commie-fascist meeting last week that something like this was going to happen. Now Sarah Palin's gonna be president. Fark.

This is why you don't miss the meeting people. You can't stay on script if you don't have the notes.

Do not attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity.

Being a nationally exposed journalist used to be an elite position, with hundreds of people competing for a slot just like it was the major leaves. A journalist had to be conscientious and educated. They had to not only do their homework, but had to be better informed than what the homework required. They had to have a drive to get the real facts.

These days that is all gone. They have to look good and they have to know the meme of the day and that's about it. I'll bet this individual would not be able to find Kenya on a map. Yet it is probably a matter of Obama's grandparents from Kenya is the same as "Obama's from Kenya" rendered into sloppy reporting.

With the midterm elections coming up, it's a great time for the president to instigate the Birthers into action, reminding America who makes up much of the Republican base.

Well when that stupid propaganda gets constantly thrown around by the derp party, occasionally it comes back up. Also, is this a big deal? I heard from Fox News that no one watches MSNBC so what they say doesn't really matter.

He wants it to be successful as a counter to China's expansion in Africa and to create new markets for US products.

One of the Birthers biggest pieces of ammo is two videos of Michelle Obama referencing Kenya as her husbands "home country" as proof of the coverup, because people are never inexact in using terms to mean either legal status as a resident of a state versus having an ethnic/cultural heritage with the people of that nation. See also: rebels in Ukraine self identifying as Russian is not evidence that they are actually serving Putin (though they are likely serving his interests).

Nope, you're wrong.  This is Obama trying to distract us from Benghazi.  He ordered this reported to make that "gaffe" so that it would through the real patriots off the trail.  We must have been getting uncomfortably close to the truth!

Just follow the trail sheeple.

MSNBC is a liberal station they want Obama and the Dems to win elections and look good. Birtherism is dying fad, burnt out after years of over use by republican's derp brigade, now it makes anyone who brings it up look insane/stupid and are pushed aside to make room for adults to speak. Obama's presidency has been filled with conspiracy theory's from arugula to milhousebengahzi, never ending and always taking republicans who spout them down from winning elections. MSNBC reporter makes one comment knowing the derpers will say "SEE SEE WE WUR RITE!" riling them into a froth the likes of which not even Rick Santorum's boyfriends have seen. The GOP lose what little control they have over their Frankenderp who feel vindicated of years of being made fun of and lose the mid terms, all thanks to one well placed comment 3 months before November. Someone's getting a fat christmas bonus this year.

I just read the article.  Kind of vague to say "Africans" when a place like Eastern Africa is currently settled by peoples who interacted with the Middle East and had very little contact with people in Sub-Saharan Africa.

www.sciencemag.org
I would think that Berbers or Ethiopians would be exposed to Neanderthal DNA through successive mating, but the people on the other side of the Sahara (which functions like an ocean or purposes of human interaction) would not.  There's probably better data that modern journalism isn't covering well.

Maybe, or maybe the prolonged propaganda directed at Obama has done it's job and worked into the public's psyche.

Considering most conservatives still believe that he is in fact a securt muslam from Africa suggests the latter. Of course they also think we found WMDs in Iraq and that Iraq and 9/11 were connected...

The Sahara wasn't always dead and wasn't always difficult to traverse. 5,000 years ago parts were tropical vegetation and transitioned into savanna.

The irony is that if he was white, no one would have thought twice about such a statement. But because he is black, it means he is a secret Muslim with a fake birth certificate. MSNBC was just trying to be progressive here in looking beyond color.

This means that all of YOU folks are the real racists!

Even if it was FOX that asserted he was Kenyan, I was going to post "Well, his pops was Kenyan yo, so that's not far from the truth."

And yeah I know, the fake Irish people in Boston etc.
