The story pointed out how many references there were to a birth at Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu. That was the claim of a United Press Internal story. It was the claim of Snopes.com – a little website that members of Congress have frequently cited as their authority that Obama is indeed a “natural born citizen.” Even Obama’s own official website retained for months a posting from About.com making the claim for Queen’s.
Barack Obama states in this
purported letter from him on what appears to be White House stationery
that he was born at the Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women and
Children in Honolulu. The letter was posted by the medical center for
nearly six months on its website and used for fundraising before electronically hidden once WND
disclosed it was not an actual paper letter, but merely HTML coding. The hospital and White House now refuse to confirm that a real document even exists.
Of course, the only living person in the world who claims to have been present for Obama’s birth is his paternal grandmother, Sarah Obama, who says it took place in Mombasa, Kenya.
Of course, you can change the written record, you can change policies, you can change your mind, but, so far, no one has proposed changing the Constitution.
It still says today what it has always said since it was first ratified: To become president of the United States, you must be a “natural born citizen.”
Isn’t it about time we asked for proof?
Why is it considered “kooky” to do so?
How come even members of Congress promoting legislation to ensure future candidates for president are constitutionally eligible are ostracized and ridiculed as “birthers”?
Even Obama himself seems to be getting self-conscious about the lingering questions about where he was born.
While in Moscow recently, he cracked: “Good morning. It is a great honor for me to join you at the New Economic School. Michelle and I are so pleased to be in Moscow. And as somebody who was born in Hawaii, I’m glad to be here in July instead of January.”
What an odd thing to say.
Notice he didn’t say, “As somebody who grew up in Hawaii, I’m glad to be here in July instead of January.” That would actually have made sense. No one becomes conditioned to climate based on where they were born. They get conditioned to climate based on where they spent time.
But, then again, Obama didn’t grow up exclusively in Hawaii. He also grew up in Indonesia.
Do you feel like I do that this issue is beginning to reach “critical mass”?
Do you agree with me that the cover-up can’t go on forever?
I don’t know where Obama was born. I have never suggested I do, despite many claims to the contrary by critics who don’t read very carefully or listen very carefully and who don’t really care about facts.
But I’m not sure who does know.
Isn’t it time to find out?
What is Barack Obama hiding?
All he has to do is call the hospital and authorize it to confirm his birth. Period. End of story. Controversy over.
What’s the downside of doing that? Can someone tell me?
