Matt Patterson: Washington Examiner
Like most people, I had discarded the issue about President Obama's birth certificate long ago as without merit. Recently, though, possible Republican presidential contender Donald Trump has renewed public interest in the matter, and so I decided to take a second look.
While Trump is mistaken in some particulars, to my surprise, the matter turns out to be more complicated than I originally thought.
Yet it is amazing that unanswered questions continue to swirl around Obama's birthplace. Even more mysterious is why the president doesn't clear up the matter unequivocally, as surely only he can. I really wish he would, if only to remove an unnecessary distraction from the public debate.
It is no wonder that some opponents of the president are fixated on this issue: If (and it is a very big if) it could be proved that Obama was born outside the United States, then the legitimacy of any legislation he has signed into law would be instantly questionable.
I don't know whether I'm a "Birther," but I know something ain't right.
I am going to make this observation regardng this issue as Food For Thought:
If --big IF 0bastard was born in Kenya, his mother did not just walk ouit and get on an airplane and fly him to Hawaii at whatever age he was when she decided to leave Kenya with him.
His mother had to have "papers" to get him on an airplane and into Hawaii. She would have had to register his birth in Kenya with the Consulate and obtain a document to get him out of Kenya and into Hawaii --the United States of America.
There IS a papertrail somewhere regarding his mother taking him from Kenya to Hawaii --or else, he was born in Hawaii.
When his mother married the Muslim and took 0bastard from Hawaii to Indonesia, she had to obtain a passport for the child and to obtain the passport, she had to produce a document first of all, proving that 0bastard was her child, and second, that he was a CITIZEN of the US and entitled to a US passport.
There is a papertrail.
We know that 0bastard has spent a King's Ransom covering up his history, and anyone with one eye and half sense knows there is a reason why a person goes to such lengths and expense to cover up their past.
And it's not just the "Birth" issue. You can't hardly find anyone who knew him as a child or a young man.
It's like he appeard --a grown man in full, in Bill Ayers living room and announced his political career was up and running.
Something ain't right. You know it, I know it, and any clear thinking person on the planet knows it.
