A Close Examination of the "evidence"
In the past couple of weeks since I last reported on the controversy surrounding Obama’s refusal to release his actual birth certificate, there have been many developments:
The far-left agitators at Media Matters have publicly called on CNN to fire Lou Dobbs, because he has taken to regularly asking for Obama to stop spending millions (in leftover campaign funds) to prevent the release of his original birth certificate. Dobbs wants Obama to make the issue moot, even as he’s repeatedly stated that he believes Obama was born in Hawaii.
Obama’s suggestion that the anger being expressed at Town hall meetings is “manufactured” apparently wasn't seen as strong enough, so the Democratic National Committee, in a new web video, is depicting the protestors as irrational Birthers who want to "destroy" President Obama.
Stanley Ann Dunham, Barack Obama's mother, was registered for college in Seattle only 15 days after reportedly delivering her first-born child in Honolulu, according to school records obtained by WND. How Dunham was able to travel the 2,680 air miles from Honolulu to Seattle only a few days after the birth of her baby is not disclosed in the currently available public record concerning President Obama's birth. Ann Dunham's transcript from the University of Washington shows she continued to take classes there through the spring term 1962, which suggests she not only abandoned Barack Obama Sr. in Hawaii, but also that she remained in Seattle to continue her studies there well into 1962, contrary to the narrative Obama laid out in his book, Dreams from My Father. Additionally, new information given by the woman who rented a Seattle apartment to Obama’s mom and baby sat the infant Obama, indicates that Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr., did not live together as man and wife after the birth of Barack Obama Jr., which further conflicts with what Obama wrote in his book.
After a new photo, of a birth certificate showing Obama was born in Kenya, was posted on line, Harry Reid took to the Senate floor and added to the official Congressional Record that the entire eligibility dispute was not worth one minute of time.
FOX News, MSNBC and the Tonight Show have also now devoted broadcast time to the Birthers and this larger issue of Obama’s refusal to release the one document that could end this controversy once and for all. And, while much of this coverage is framed to make those seeking a resolution to this issue, as conspiritorialists and even Racists, there’s no dispute that the question of Obama’s voracity, as well as his eligibility to serve, is not going away and, in fact, is picking up steam every day.
