Are Kellman and Obama lying about how they really met - and who introduced them?

KELLMAN DNC SPEECH (PREPARED TEXT):
In 1985, I needed to hire a community organizer. I found myself in New York City, across from a 25-year-old recent college graduate. I wanted to convince him to give up a comfortable life and a bright future to come to Chicago to take up the toughest of challenges for a salary of just $10,000 a year.
  • "... I FOUND MYSELF..." IS DELIBERATELY VAGUE AND PASSIVE.
  • HOW DID HE FIND HIMSELF THERE - ACROSS FROM OBAMA?
  • WAS IT BY MAGIC? BY CHANCE?
  • WHY IS HE BEING VAGUE?
BYRON YORK:
Kellman set out to find a black organizer. He ran an ad in some trade publications, and Obama responded.

But at first Kellman wasn’t sure Obama was right for the job. “My wife was Japanese-American,” Kellman recalled. “I showed her the résumé, with the background in Hawaii. The name’s Obama, so I asked, ‘Could this be Japanese?’ She said, ‘Sure, it could be.’” It was only when Kellman talked to Obama on the phone, and Obama “expressed interest in something African-American culturally,” that a relieved Kellman offered Obama the job.
  • AN AD???
  • IN VAGUE PUBLICATIONS?
  • HAS ANYBODY SEEN A COPY OF ONE?
  • AND IN THIS VERSION, KELLMAN OFFERS OBAMA THE JOB OVER THE PHONE. HMM...
OBAMA AT WESLEYAN:
“I wrote letters to every organization in the country I could think of. And one day, a small group of churches on the South Side of Chicago offered me a job to come work as a community organizer in neighborhoods that had been devastated by steel plant closings.

My mother and grandparents wanted me to go to law school. My friends were applying to jobs on Wall Street.

Meanwhile, this organization offered me $12,000 a year plus $2,000 for an old, beat-up car.And I said yes.
  • OBAMA DESCRIBES IT AS IF HE GOT THE OFFER AS A RESULT OF HIS LETTER-WRITING;
  • THERE IS NO MENTION OF ANY AD, OR ANY PHONE CALL.
  • HUH?!?!? 12,OOO!? BUT KELLMAN SAYS ABOVE (AT THE DNC), IT WAS 10 GEES!?
ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS VERSION:
He came to Chicago as a skinny 24-year-old, not long out of Columbia University, who was looking for a job as a community organizer. He was still in New York, frustrated by his inability to find anything suitable, when one day he spotted a want ad in what he would call a "do-gooder" magazine.
  • HMMMM.... THIS VERSION -- WHICH COMES AFTER THE DNC CONVENTION, (AFTER KELLMAN'S VERSION IS BROADCAST TO THE NATION AND IT DIFFERS FROM OBAMA'S) -- SEE,S TO COMBINE ELEMENTS OF KELLMAN'S "AD VERSION" WITH OBAMA'S LETTER - AND THE VISIT TO NY.
  • THESE VERSIONS SEEM TO ME TO DIFFER SUBTLY - YET SIGNIFICANTLY.
  • THEY EACH HAVE A DIFFERENT VERSION OF HOW KELLMAN AND OBAMA MET, HOW THE OPFFER WAS MADE, HOW MUCH IT WAS FOR, ETC.
  • IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THEY ARE COVERING UP SOMETHING. BUT WHAT!?
PROBABLY THAT IT WAS THROUGH COLUMBIA GRAD BILL AYERS THAT KELLMAN AND OBAMA WERE PUT TOGETHER.

"THE WOODS FUND" FINANCED OBAMA'S JOB. THIS FUND WAS FINANCED BY TOM AYERS - BILL AYERS' FATHER. [USE THAT LINK AND RTWT!]
  • IN ADDITION: COLUMBIA WAS AT THE TIME THE HOME OF THE LATE EDWARD SAID - WHOSE JOB IS NOW HELD BY FORMER CHICAGOAN, FORMER ARAFAT ASSOCIATE AND LONGTIME OBAMA FRIEND RASHID KHALIDI.
  • ANOTHER COINCIDENCE?
  • I'M GUESSING NO.
  • THERE ARE WAY TOO MANY "COINCIDENCES" IN THIS STORY.

The strongest connection is likely that of Obama's biological father, Frank Marshall Davis. Wasn't he good friends Ayers?

Excellent post. The differences between the stories are very interesting.

What exactly were "trade publications" for community organizers? The Daily Worker? The People's Daily?

Punditarian said...

The Denver paper said Obama called it a "go dooder magazine." What the heck is that? Why not just come out and name it?

I'm pretty sure they were mistakes. Some information is also foggy, because these events happened quite a while ago. Anyway, I'm sure they just made mistakes. Haven't you people ever heard of mistakes?
Of wait. Of course you have, your Republicans. Just look at George Bush. His entire birth was a mistake.

where is "Paul Harvey when you need him?lol The obamas are the ones who's brith must be a mistake because his mother abandon him over the drugs he and his grand father and would be fathers used.she was so deep into that scene it surprises me to think who else but Davis,and Ayers would give him a shot except for the fact that they all were terroist and athesists bent on the destruction of this goverment,and country,I have heard about lying by omission?that's not a mistake,at least Bush knows who his"REAL" daddy is?Hey Maybe Maury can find out who this Communist,terroist loving,drug using,lying,back stabbing,child of a pedophile,rapist really is,because he's not who he says he is,because he doesn't know how many daddy's he has?
