Among some forty million other “mainstream media websites,” The Daily Mail reports Hawaii Governor Abercrombie claims “Obama’s birth record exists, but he cannot produce it.”
Ho hum. What else is new. Reasonably reliable sources inside the beltway say that since the Hilary Clinton campaign charged Obama was born in Kenya, the Obama campaign has spent close to 100 million dollars avoiding the issue.
Now, it’s like this. Sometime next year, the Democratic National Committee will have to certify their candidate as “eligible,” that is, as a “natural born citizen of the United States.” In 2008, the Democrats sent a proper certification of eligibility to one state. Hawaii. The other 49 states received what amounts to a certification of candidacy. Barack H. Obama will be our candidate, yada yada.
Since the Democrats have played fast and loose with the rules once, as many states as possible should rework their rules, and require a certified copy of the candidates birth certificate be filed along with a certificate of eligibility; or the candidate cannot appear on the ballot. Because increasing numbers of Americans doubt Obama’s eligibility and that question should be settled, for once and for all.
