More Prevaricating from Abercrombie

On January 21, 2009, the day after Obama was inaugurated, talk radio host Mike Evans interviewed then Congressman Neil Abercrombie on his relationships with the Barack Obamas, senior and junior.




During this little-seen, congenial, 7-minute interview on C-SPAN, a relaxed Abercrombie reminisced about his own arrival in Hawaii in 1959 and his acquaintance with Barack Obama Sr., whom he described in glowing terms.

When the subject turned to President Obama, Evans asked, "Do you remember him growing up."

"I remember him as a little boy with his grandfather," Abercrombie answered, "because his mother and father separated."  Abercrombie elaborated that "little Barry" went everywhere with his grandfather, Stanley Dunham, and one could not help but to run into them.

The reader may recall that just before Christmas Abercrombie told the Los Angeles Times, "Maybe I'm the only one in the country that could look you right in the eye right now and tell you, 'I was here when that baby was born.'"

A few days later, Abercrombie clarified to Mark Niesse of the Associated Press that he didn't exactly see Obama's parents with their newborn son at the hospital, but that he "remembers seeing Obama as a child with his parents at social events."  In fact, however, Abercrombie never saw young Barry with his parents at all.

In his effort to embarrass those who would like to see Obama's birth certificate, it seems that Abercrombie has been serially fabricating a family that never existed and embellishing his own relation to it.

Curious, too, is that in his 2009 interview with Evans, one in which he describes Obama Sr. in great detail, Abercrombie has not a word to say about Ann Dunham or the Obamas as a couple.

No, Virginia, Abercrombie is not screwing with the "birthers." He is simply screwing up.
