Michelle Malkin and a large chuck of the blogshere is reporting on Presidential Candidate Barack Obama’s refusal to disclose his Birth Certificate.
As it is required that a person be a Natural Born US citizen, why is Barack so unwilling to provide this basic document, one that most have to provide to get many other things in the US such as a drivers license, passport etc…
They made McCain have to go through Congress to ensure that even though both parents were US citizens and his father was Stationed on a US Military base in Central America, under military orders. The same should without apply to Barack, especially since his father is not a US Citizen.
Malkin picks up on one view that his name on the birth certificate may say Barry instead of Barack… I think something more is there… Possibly that he is listed as WHITE, not BLACK on the application… Holy shit, can you imagine if that were true… My kids are a result of mixed race, asian and caucasian… On their birth certificate applications they are listed as Caucasian… This could really hurt Baracks black vote and may expose the lies that are his life… Damn that typical white grandmother of his…
Is there something on the birth certificate that will harm him.
We tried to obtain a copy of Obama’s birth certificate, but his campaign would not release it and the state of Hawaii does not make such records public.
Has anyone seen it? Why shouldn’t the record be in the public domain for presidential candidates?
Geraghty walks through various rumors now circulating in the wake of the Obama campaign’s birth certificate blackout, including this one:
Rumor Three: His mother did not want to name him after his father, and his birth certificate says “Barry.” Perhaps the most plausible of the rumors, as Obama was known by that name through much of his childhood and young adulthood. If true, this would spur a new round of “When Barry Became Barack” stories – a minor headache for the campaign, but hardly a major scandal.
Lest the Obama campaign start whining about this issue being an unfair “distraction,” John McCain underwent intense scrutiny of his citizenship status because of his birth in the Panama Canal zone, leading the Senate to declare him a natural-born citizen in April.
