    There was an odd little moment with Spice Jet founder Bhupendra Kansagra when President Obama spoke to CEOs Saturday in Mumbai.

    MR. KANSAGRA: Thank you. Welcome, Mr. President, to India. As a fellow Kenyan, I’m very proud to see that you have made --

    THE PRESIDENT: Made something of myself. (Laughter.)

    MR. KANSAGRA: -- India as the focus of your drive for exports out of the U.S.

    Obviously the president is not a Kenyan. One supposes Mr. Kansagra meant "of Kenyan ancestry" or something.

    - Jake Tapper

    from and LOTS of comments.

    Actually, he said "Kennyan". They're both huge fans of South Park.

    Another member alerted me to this Jake Tapper bit earlier this morning, and it's just one more such interesting little tidbit that add fuels to the "birther' theories.

    As the member (I'll leave it to him to identify himself since he communicated via PM) observed, Tapper is maybe the most objective and least wingnut reporter/commentator ABC has. So is he teasing?

    HUBRIS ALERT!! I wonder whether Jake was just being kind or whether he felt Obama's high opinion of himself seeping out of this. To our President his favorite words seem to be: "Me, I, and Myself."

    He's misquoted. It's a common mistake.

    He actually said "Keynesian."

    Well, the folks over there seem fascinated with his teleprompter, and who knows what they mean?
