But there is basic common sense, which is what this board forgets most of the time. Common sense dictates that if Obama's mother is an American, and
he was born in Hawaii and the officials from Hawaii confirm that he was born there it is a pretty good bet that he is a natural born citizen.
No one questions Obama's mothers natural born citizenship do they? No they don't. The only reason they think that Obama was born in Kenya is because
Obama Sr. was born in Kenya. It's a chink in the armor they think they can tug away at. If you haven't noticed on this discussion board Obama isn't
exactly the most popular fellow. Therefore any information (true or otherwise) that they can try and use against him will be used.
Rational people, including people that actually have a say in such matters (I.E. Congress) feel otherwise, and this is why he was confirmed by
congress as the POTUS. But this makes these people feel better about themselves. It makes them feel better about the state of the world they live in.
They have a delusional fantasy about an illegitimate president they can obsess over. So they do, and there is a lot of people to obsess over this
particular fantasy, some of them can make up things and spread that disinformation to the others to use and thus cause debates like this.
The sad truth is, these people believe this nonsense because it fits to what they want to believe. It's not rational, its what fits for them. They
believe there is no possible way that Obama could have won the presidency legitimately so they believe anything that supports that belief.
It's a psychological condition. Your not going to change these people's minds no matter how hard you try to reason with them. Truth, reality, actual
facts mean nothing to these people. All they believe is anything that favors their side of the argument.
These people live by the mantra of
I reject your reality, and substitute my own
and there is enough of them to feed off of each other.
Give it time, eventually Obama won't be in office anymore and this issue will die. The earliest date? January 20th 2013.
