image for Obama admits, "I am a Keynesian", proving he was born in Keynesia
Barack Obama, native of Keynesia

In a rare, unguarded moment, US President Barack Obama told reporters, "I consider my fiscal strategies to be flexible and pragmatic. But if you must label my economic philosophy, I suppose you could say that I am a Keynesian.

Though many had suspected that the president was a native of Africa, this is the first time he has flatly admitted to being born in Keynesia, the East African nation that is also the native land of his father.

But many claim that the president was misunderstood. They point to a speech given to Wall Street executives in early summer where he said, "Free and open markets are the foundation of our nation's prosperity. So, concerning business policy, I am fundamentally a Libertarian", as much as admitting that he was born in Libertaria, the small West African nation founded by freed American slaves in 1822.

Make Q. William Bacon's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
