A video has been posted online in which Michelle Obama, at a 2007 fundraiser, describes her husband as "Kenyan."

The statement from the now-first lady adds weight to another video revealed earlier in which she describe Kenya as Barack Obama's "home country."

"Is Michelle Obama a Birther?" wrote a commentator at American Thinker. "The question has to be asked, now that a second YouTube video has surfaced in which Michelle Obama refers to her husband as a Kenyan."

The video:

Michelle Obama was boasting about crowds wanting to see her husband that couldn't fit in the venue and were lined up outside.

At about two minutes into the video, she says, "What it reminded me of was our trip to Africa, two years ago, and the level of excitement that we felt in that country – the hope that people saw just in the sheer presence of somebody like Barack Obama – a Kenyan, a black man, a man of great statesmanship who they believe could change the fate of the world."

The video apparently was from a Tampa, Fla., fundraiser in December 2007.

She also blasted the United States.

"We are still living in a country that is too mean. You know we are not kind to one another and politics reminds us of that," she said. "I don't have faith that Americans want more than what we have. … We don't engage."

She also described Americans as "too cynical" and "too divided" and said they are "led by fear."

The earlier video was from a 2008 appearance:

The video, posted April 3 on YouTube, shows Michelle Obama saying, "When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country in Kenya, we took a public HIV test."

The clip comes from a June 2008 campaign speech she delivered to the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Council of the Democratic National Committee in New York City, as reported by Reuters.

Many who circulated a link to the 2008 video clip concluded the first lady was acknowledging her husband was born in Kenya and, therefore, not eligible for the Oval Office under the requirement of Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution that the president be a "natural born citizen."

In the speech, Michelle Obama attempted to draw a moral equivalence between the civil rights movement's push to obtain equal rights under U.S. law for blacks and the agenda of homosexual-rights activists.

Echoing leftist Saul Alinsky's 1971 book "Rules for Radicals," Michelle Obama said, "And [Barack] says, 'That in the world as it should be – what does that look like? Now, in the world as it should be we can work together to repeal laws like DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) and 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' and we can (applause) … we can oppose divisive constitutional amendments that would strip civil rights and benefits away from LGBT Americans because discrimination has no place in a nation founded on the promise of equality.'"

The Obamas' 2006 trip to Kenya was documented in a DVD, "Senator Obama Goes to Africa," produced by Bob Hercules and Keith Walker. The two filmmakers also collaborated to produce an earlier documentary on Alinsky, "The Democratic Promise: Saul Alinsky and His Legacy."
