Honestly, I’ve not talked about this before because I really think that if there was something to it, Hillary would have found it. Still, the fact remains that Barack Obama hasn’t exactly been forthcoming about the whole story. Maybe he thought if he ignored it, it would go away.
But why not just produce the birth certificate and get it over with? That’s what John McCain did when he was questioned about his birth in Panama (to United States citizens serving in the military).
I mean, doesn’t Obama have a copy of his birth certificate? Didn’t he need it to apply for his social security card, or his passport? Or for his college admission? Heck, earlier this year I had to provide my birth certificate just to get my driver’s license renewed.
Even if he didn’t have a copy, he could easily get one from the State of Hawaii. He was there this summer for over a week. He knew the issue was out there.
Why not end the speculation? Why not make Philip J. Berg look like a fool?
Instead Berg announced today that Obama & DNC Admit All Allegations of Federal Court Lawsuit – Obama’s “Not” Qualified to be President
(Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania – 10/21/08) – Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States, announced today that Obama and tbe DNC “ADMITTED”, by way of failure to timely respond to Requests for Admissions, all of the numerous specific requests in the Federal lawsuit. Obama is “NOT QUALIFIED” to be President and therefore Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President and the DNC shall substitute a qualified candidate. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.
I’m no lawyer, and I don’t play one on the Internet. So I don’t know if there’s substanct to Berg’s legal claim or not.
But again, why hasn’t Obama just answered the question?
Some are speculating that this is the real reason he went to Hawaii.
Earlier this week, as we all know (unless you’re living in a cave, under a rock where only Joe Biden knows your undisclosed location), Barack Obama announced that he would be traveling to Hawaii to visit his ailing grandmother. [New York Times]
In an interview with CBS Anchor Harry Smith said that he wanted to go see his grandmother because he didn’t want to repeat the mistake he made with not getting home to see his dying mother in time.
We certainly extend our best wishes to Mrs. Dunham. Forgive me for suggesting he’s untrustworthy (instead of just saying it outright). And forgive me for sounding callous. I’ve had ailing relatives. I’ve been told they’re at death’s door and if I wanted to see them, I needed to get there asap.
I didn’t wait four days to go see them. Especially not if I’d had the experience of being too late before.
Was it that important for Obama to appear in Richmond yesterday? After all, if we’re to believe the polls he’s some eight-hunnert and fifty-three bazillion points ahead in the Commonwealth. Why the timing for the Hawaii trip?
Could it be that Obama needed to get to Hawaii to deal with the lawsuit filed by Andy Martin?
Or are Philip Berg and Andy Martin wingnuts who just want some attention?
But consider these “facts.”
- Barack Obama’s paternal grandmother said she was in delivery room in Kenya with brother and sister in 1961.
- Obama’s half-sister Maya names the Hawaii hospital in which he was born. Barack Obama names a different hospital.
- Obama spent four years in school in Indonesia, at a time of war when supposedly you could not attend school if you were not a citizen. A copy of a school record lists Barry Sotero (his stepfather’s last name) as a citizen of Indonesia.
- Obama and the DNC have tried to have Berg’s lawsuit dismissed for legal technicalities.
Is this all just a bit of wing nuttery? Have I wasted an evening pulling this post together?
One thing continues to tell me that I have: Hillary would have found it. Unless, of course, I wrap myself completely in tin foil and speculate that this is her way of getting him out of her way for 2012.
Most of me thinks there’s just nothing here. But I can’t get away from the nagging question of why doesn’t Barack Obama just produce the document and be done with it?
Then again, why haven’t we seen his medical records, or his college transcripts? Or why don’t we know the extent of his relationships with William Ayers, with Jeremiah Wright, with Louis Farrakahn, with Tony Rezko, with ACORN, etc., etc., etc.?
There’s just too much we don’t know. We expect the main stream media to jump right on this.
Just as soon as they find out where Sarah Palin got that stunning new jacket.
