As an impartial observer (I do not live in the US and am not a US citizen), I have read parts of many of these threads, with a large degree of
frustration, as the same old arguments from both pro and anti Obama keep being repeated, with no resolution in sight (there never will be).
As an impartial observer, I would thought that I would add my 2 cents to the topic, but it is probably worth me briefly mentioning my initial thoughts
on Obama leading up to his inauguration.
Obama seemed to appear out of nowhere, with minimal profile (compared to his opponents) and minimal achievements.
There was next to no MSM scrutiny of him, his previous voting habits, background, associations, etc, unlike the scrutiny applied to Sarah Palin (more
Obsms became the Darling of the MSM and had some great speeches and an unsurpassed presentation, plus the obligatory fawning Celebrities such as Oprah
to enhance his credibility; he became a political rockstar.
He came to power after one of the most despised Presidents was vacating the Oval Office and at a time of great turmoil. He promised something
different and had the charisma to carry it.
For some reason, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, which I am still trying to work out?
Now to me, as an outsider looking in, the whole thing seemed orchestrated and I have to say, I was not enraptured with some of the policies he was
proposing and trying to push through. I was highly suspicious and skeptical of the entire US political system and on this front, not a lot has
As his term has progressed, I have found myself agreeing with some of the policies he has been pushing and cannot really fathom why there is so much
objection to them, but that is an aside, what I am trying to say is I have looked beyond my initial reticence to his election and tried to look
adjectively at the outcome.
If you have managed to read this far through my post, you have probably being agreeing with me at times and raging at others; like I said, I am
impartial, so feel I can provide somewhat of an honest take on the entire topic.
Now to get back to the topic of this thread, I have to agree that Obama's entire background is suspicious; it appeared that way to me from the
beginning and nothing since has swayed this feeling, there is simply too much ambiguity about many aspects of his past. Looking at the entire birther
thing, I would have to say it smells, the supposed proof appears to have been heavily edited, which should raise questions whichever side you are
Now, I am not condoning the circumstances of his eligibility in any way, but my opinion is that nothing will change; if it is a massively orchestrated
conspiracy to get Obama into the Whitehouse, it will never come to light in any meaningful way; likewise, if everyone seriously f**ked up, they ain't
going to tell.
Honestly, do any of you think that anyone in the US will admit they have/had an ineligible person as President of the USA???
The way I see it is, if Obama is really ineligible, then he is not the problem, your focus should be elsewhere, that is where the real issue
