The African Press International blog published an article October 15, 2008 stating that Michelle Obama called them and said:
“African press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view,”
“”Shocking development: Mrs Obama decides enough is enough: “My husband was born in Hawaii and adopted by his step father, does that make him unpatriotic; she asks”, on a direct telephone to API.”

I just got off the phone with a very reputable source that says there is absolutely, positively an audiotape showing that Michelle Obama did in fact say what she said.
I cannot say more right now, as to the source, but let’s put it this way — If you want to know something about Obama, you talk to this guy.
