From the AP in 2004: Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate


Hmm…An AP story from 2004 entitled Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate has been discovered on archive.org. Does this mean now that the AP is nothing but a bunch of birthers?

Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.

This report explains the context of the oft cited debate, between Obama and Keyes in the following Fall, in which Keyes faulted Obama for not being a “natural born citizen”, and in which Obama, by his quick retort, “So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency”, Obama himself was putting out in 2004, that he was born in Kenya.

NOTE: One commentator here reports in the divorce papers for 2004 GOP Senate candidate Jack Ryan mentioned the possibility of (i) public sex in a Paris bar, and (ii) a threesome with the ex-wife and with another woman. Jeri Ryan was 7 of 9 on Star Trek.
