Most American’s aren’t Birthers or anti-Birthers, but we are beginning to wonder why the president doesn’t put this one to rest once and for all. Every day he allows this circus to continue is another day that he behaves less like the President of the United States facing weird accusations from fringe groups and more like a strange politician flying to Argentina to visit his soul-mate while pretending to be hiking the Appalachians.
...The state official in Hawaii who manages such things has reiterated that there is indeed an original birth certificate on file which would confirm President Obama’s having been born in Hawaii and that she has seen it, but state law won’t allow her to release it unless the president authorizes it.
I remember reading somewhere that the original had been “lost in a fire,” or it had been dumped when HI went to electronic record keeping—both ridiculous. Also ridiculous: “Father’s Race: African"." In 1961?? uh, no. The term at that time was “Negro.”
I mean srsly.... The question is not so much “where was he born,” [though that is of interest] but “whyinhell is he jerkin’ folks around leaving this flaming issue to erode his credibility?”
