Yahoo! Political Blogger Makes Obama Birthplace Gaffe


Is Yahoo! The Ticket writer Rachel Rose Hartman a birther?

The political blogger opened her story about President Obama's upcoming trip to Africa by noting that "he won't be stopping in the country of his birth." She went on to say Obama would travel to Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzani but not Kenya.

President Obama was not born in Kenya.

He was born in America.

We've reached out to Hartman to ask if this was some kind of mistake or if this is her way of announcing that she wants to see Obama's longform birth certificate.

Update: The article has been changed. It now refers to Kenya as Obama's "ancestral homeland."
