He's not 'my' Obama, incidentally. I'm one of the international posters who take an interest, based on the amount of interference by the US in
the lives of non-Americans
It's been reported in the msm that one of Obama's first official acts was to seal his records. Did he imagine that would reassure those already
concerned by the lack of transparency re: his place of birth ?
Mud sticks. If Obama doesn't realise that AND the implications as regards his office, then he has no business holding that office
' This is what I'm claiming and you can believe it or not. I don't care. I'm not going to clarify this confusing issue re: my place of birth,
religion or loyalties. I'm here. I'm President. Like it or lump it ' ? Is that the attitude of someone with an interest in assuring 300 million
people that he can be trusted to steer them through turbulent and difficult times ? Is it the attitude of someone who is asking Americans to support
wars overseas at the same time his administration advises that 500 of those Americans will die in just one of those wars each month ?
It used to be that when someone was applying for a position of responsibility, involving perhaps the lives of others and certainly their money and
futures, that the applicant would make a strenuous and sincere effort to furnish their credentials, their work history, character references, personal
and other history, etc.
In order to hold the office of President of the United States, one stipulation is that the candidate MUST be able to prove they were born in the
It seems that Obama has failed to prove this to the satisfaction of a large percentage of the American public, even one year after gaining office
It shouldn't be difficult to satisfy the doubts and questions. It would be manifestly easier to prove one has been born in the United States, for
example, than for a 12 year old to pass an exam. After all, if Obama possesses a birth certificate which proves unequivocally that he was born in the
United States, he need only produce such a certificate. It either exists or it does not. The document should be above doubt. What mother does not
ensure her children's birth certificates are 100% bonafide ? What mother does not keep her children's birth certificates in a safe yet accessible
location ? After all, a mother is compelled to produce those certificates several times during the child's life
So why isn't Obama able to produce his birth certificate with the same naturalness and openness as any other American ?
How did he obtain passports during all those years prior to becoming President ? And IF he was in possession of a demonstrably genuine birth
certificate all through those years, why can't he produce it just as easily now ?
It's said Obama travelled on a British passport for many years ? Why ? Why didn't he travel on an American passport ?
The questions, uncertainty and doubt of many Americans re: Obama's legitimacy are themselves legitimate. It behoves Obama AND all members of
Congress to cease claims of legitimacy until such time as Congress and/or Obama have proved beyond all shadow of doubt that he is entitled to hold the
office of President of the US.
This will not go away until such time as Obama makes full disclosure re: the location of his birth. The fact so many continue to doubt Obama serves
to divide the populace. Or perhaps that's what's intended ?
