There is definitely something Obama is hiding. What it is, I don’t know.
Even if it has nothing to do with the eligibility issue, I think it’s clear that he has lied about something fundamental in his “compelling biography.”
It may be foolish to assert that Obama is not a natural-born citizen. time will etll.
I think it is at least as foolish to assert that there is no controversy about his background whatsoever.
etll = tell
I am absolutely positive that Obama has lied and covered up his past, with the aid of the mainstream media.
However, I really don’t see the evidence that he was born in Kenya. And the posts who claim to know the difference between citizen and natural-born citizen really don’t know what they’re talking about. The best that they can do is point to a dissenting opinion in the Wong Kim Ark case.
While there certainly are questions, like the school enrollment form that lists his citizenship as Indonesian, the media has already limited this discussion to “birthers.”
Obama’s poll numbers are falling. People are mad as hell about socialized healthcare. They don’t think that he has done a good job with the economy.
By pursuing birtherism, we have already let the Dems and media define the battleground for us. Obama is not weak on this issue. I’m as much of a constitutionalist as anyone on FR, but we have to pick the battles where we have an advantage.
We’re not going to get anywhere with the idea that he was born outside of the United States, regardless of where he was born. I don’t care whether you like what I just wrote, it’s a fact. We will, however, get a lot of traction on hot-button issues like socialized medicine, taxes, cap and trade, the failed stimulus, and out-of-control spending.
Yes, he's lied about a bunch of things. Being born in Hawaii is not one of them.
Unfortunately, by conflating the two issues (his eligibility and lack of disclosure), the Birther loons taint those of us with legitimate questions about his biography and lack of transparency.
