Last week I wrote about the apparent debunking of a campaign story Barack Obama used often in 2008, and subsequently leading up to the passage of Obamacare — the one about his mother and her horrible struggles to keep her health insurance company from dropping her while she was ill with cancer.

The author hasn’t recanted the story, but she’s none too eager to discuss it, either.

From Byron York:

Many authors of newly-published books are eager to discuss their work, especially if the book has made news. But Janny Scott, author of A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother, doesn’t want to talk about what has become the most newsworthy part of her generally well-received new biography.

Rest of the story here.

If the author would aggressively publicize this story she’d no doubt sell more books. What could have happened to make her not want to talk about it?

    "Ann's compensation for her job in Jakarta had included health insurance, which covered most of the costs of her medical treatment," Scott wrote. "Once she was back in Hawaii, the hospital billed her insurance company directly, leaving Ann to pay only the deductible and any uncovered expenses, which, she said, came to several hundred dollars a month."

    Kuh-BLAMMY! yo' Libs, that was the sound of your Messiah imploding. Let's check Amazon for all the deleted Reader's Reviews.

    Look pretty sanitized to me.

    If anyone finds a Review that points out the obvious conflict between factual accounts, public record ( and Obie's SPIN on his mother's "denial of services"/pre-existing cond. etc. ) please point that out.
