The question has to be asked, now that a second YouTube video has surfaced in which Michelle Obama refers to her husband as a Kenyan.

In a rather whiny harangue during a fundraiser in Tampa in December 2007, in which she discussed how hard it was for her and her husband to pay off student loans from “good schools,” Michelle Obama said the following:

“What it reminded me of was our trip to Africa, two years ago, and the level of excitement that we felt in that country – the hope that people saw just in the sheer presence of somebody like Barack Obama – a Kenyan, a black man, a man of great statesmanship who they believe could change the fate of the world.”

See it here: (The reference to “Kenyan” starts about 2:00 minutes into the video)

This video joins a previously noted video in which she refers to her husband’s “home country in Kenya.”

Whatever the facts of his birthplace, it is clear that Michelle Obama thinks of her husband as a Kenyan.

Update: J.C. Areans adds:

Michelle calls Africa a “country” as opposed to a “continent”. Her husband also believed there were 57 States.
Time for these Ivy League-educated geniuses to take a Geography class.
