It was an old story, at least in the journalistic timeline, regarding an additional alias found by a debt collector who was skip-tracing on an entirely different subject, rooted in the Chicago area. In mid-2011, the discovery of the surprising new alias was publicized on a very limited basis while even a little known satirized book was published about it.
Now Obama's birth certificate debacle has resurfaced once again, due simply to the Supreme Court's revitalized interest in reviewing a case that activist Orly Taitz has been pursuing for the last four years.
However, after watching the accompanying Youtube video, don't be fooled into thinking that this could actually be true, because social security numbers are recycled back into the system periodically by the social security administration, at regular intervals.
The fact that this particular individual, born in 1890 and verified through the 1940 census, actually lived in the same home and address as Obama, is mere happenstance at best. The additional fact that Obama later took the man's name, before resuming his birth name, after changing from his second name of Barry Soetoro, is also pure happenstance and should bear no further critical rumination.
The linkage between the alias of the newly found name and Michelle Obama, indicating a documentation trail linking Obama's wife to this individual, can merely be chalked up to a bureaucratic mistake in which a perfect storm of errors came together, all at once, linking the long expired individual to both of the Obama's --and at the same documental juncture.
All of this, even while the recycled SSN number went to the same and later occupant of the exact same residence out of millions of alternative re-assignment possibilities. Similar, in fact, to the frequently experienced instances of getting struck by lightning, bitten by a shark, and winning the lottery all at the same time.....while swimming in Lake Michigan.
Perhaps the Supreme Court might be able to iron out what has been called a stupendously racist inquiry on February the 15th, 2013 when they will take up the question of birther fraud ridiculosity in the highest Court of the land.
But, nothing to see here, folks, just move along.
This sort of thing Happens all the time.....
