When I first heard of the lawsuit involving Barack Obama's birth place, my first thought was that this is just the delusional fantasy of some folks desperate to try anything to keep Obama out of the White House.
Just a few days ago, a caller to the Neal Boortz radio program tried to get him to speculate on it but, Neal wouldn't take the bait. He said he was certain Barack was born in Hawaii and this lawsuit was a complete waste of time.
Then, I came across a YouTube video posted on
truthbloggedhere.blogspot.com.....now, I have some questions.
The guy bringing the lawsuit in Pennsylvania believes Obama was actually born in Kenya and therefore ineligible to become POTUS. He sights Obama's grandmother who says she was present at the boy's birth. Naturally, Obama has lawyers fighting the case for him.
At first glance, the answer seems obvious; produce a verifiable, certified birth certificate.
Articles on factcheck.org and politifact.com say that's already happened. There are photos of the document and they say the case is, therefore, closed.
To counter that claim, Pamela Gellar of atlas shrugs presents evidence from an expert in detecting forgeries who claims the Obama Hawaiian Birth Certificate is a forgery.
Obama -or someone backing him- is paying lawyers to fight the lawsuit. Why not just save the money, end the whole thing and give a certified copy of the document to the judge presiding over the lawsuit. That seems the simplest thing.
