Skip to comments.Salon's handy-dandy guide to refuting the Birthers
Posted on 08/06/2009 8:50:08 AM PDT by DavidFarrar
"There are, sadly, a lot of Birthers out there. A recent poll showed that 11% of Americans -- including 28% of Republicans -- don't believe President Obama was born in the U.S. Another 12% aren't sure.
"So, at some point, you're likely to find out that a friend or relative is a Birther. Your Uncle Floyd will forward you a chain e-mail that says Obama was actually born in Kenya and there's a Kenyan birth certificate that proves it and hundreds of government officials and reporters are in on a conspiracy to hide the truth of his ineligibility for the presidency from the public. And you will wonder: How can I possibly deal with all the falsehoods in this e-mail without disappearing down a rabbit hole?
Well, wonder no more. In the spirit of public service, Salon has compiled this list of the most popular Birther myths, along with all the debunking you could ever ask for. Now you can just e-mail this list to Uncle Floyd and get on with your life."

For instance, in the first example, Koppelman implies Hawaiian Health officials have authenticated the document posted on the website "Fight-the-Smears" as an authentic Hawaiian COLB. To my knowledge, there has been no such authentication.
As you read down the list, I think it's always a good idea to get our facts in order on the various issues raised in this article, so we don't wonder too far from the "prima facie" facts.

Down from nearly $10 per share in 2006.
A person in Hawaii claims to have actually seen the birth certificate.
A person in Kenya claims to have actually seen the birth itself.
How can this be—a lying liberal?
How many false statements can we find?
Really lame rationale. Obama has no problem legitimizing every thug dictator out there, but President Transparency can't disclose his birth certificate to American citizens. What a crook! Besides, there is important historical information on the actual birth certificate that is not on the certification such as the hospital and doctor. The left has not come up with one legitimate reason why this hasn't happened.
Uncle Floyd, like alot of us would have to just shut right up and this would no longer be an issue if zer0 would do it.
zer0 won't do it, and We all will continue to believe that he is a phony as is are Democrat’s .
The Salon “refutation” rebutted here:
I dont think Salon cares about its stock price
They are a propaganda ministry, so money is no object.
one of every 4 think he was born outside the U.S or are not sure.. thats tens of millions of Americans who have doubts about his legitimacy..
but apparently thats not enough of a concern for Obama to even do the minimal effort of paying the 12$ and release his long form birth certificate..
Umm...Did Salon wring it’s collective hands when it was reported that some percentage of Americans believed the Twin Towers was a CIA operation?
Fortunately my family tree is much more evolved than to have ANYONE in it that would spout such garbage, with so many flaming liberal falsehoods, inaccuracies, half-truths and down right lies.
They get an influx of cash from some benifactor most years (especially during election years).
You could buy a penny stock like this and double your money when someone’s paying.
Being a birther now means you’re a respecter of the Constitution, nothing more, nothing less. Obama refused to release his long form birth control, and the hounds of the press are guarding his coffin, so he’s hiding something. The facts are known to us and the enemies of the Constitution. I won’t have egg on my face if Obama releases his actual birth certificate and we birthers are wrong, we’ll just have exercised our rights as citizens and move on.
IOWs it is a very legitimate and compelling question to ask why 0bama is hiding his records. Even a near idiot would wonder why he did that if there is nothing seriously damaging about them.
So Salon stands by the reason “spite” as justification for not releasing the original birth certificate.
The only reason I have seen stated, it because he can. He is either an arrogant bastard or has something to hide or most likely both. The certification of live birth seems to be sufficient for most courts. But I want to see the original source documentation. I still question why the birth announcements in the paper list an address they never lived. Looks like the actual birth certificate had some fishy information on it to say the least.
