Well stated rebuttal.
Your reply was well thought out and very calm.
I am not so calm about it.
I think everyone forgets that he is adopted ... which, as I understand it, hides all old data even blocks it, and the new data only is shown i.e. on the COLB short form.
Perhaps he is even adopted twice, once going out to Indonesia, once coming back.
Remember that he started college at 18 or 19 as Soetoro .... meaning he might have been an Indonesian even in his own mind until the second divorce.
ie a foreign student.
So , no one has asked how the short form would change as the old data was washed in the case of an adoption.
I also think it very likely he was born in Canada in an unwed mothers home altho no one has much looked into this.
That would explain Mom showing up in Seattle so soon after birth.By car.
Don’t we have any billionaires to hire a few private detectives? Or someone willing to pursue it all?
As for the other point about the value of American citizenship, you covered it better than me but anyone living and travelling internationally knows all of this and saying sneeringly that it must have been a conspiracy with the Presidential election in mind is so foolish, so stupid, it’s hard to reply without exploding. Obviously, the grandparents would want to file in Hawaii and take advantage of their lax laws to get ole Barry American Passport etc.
These “journalists” don’t understand or are just willfully stupid? It seems so easy.
And by the way, it was Barry who quietly backed the campaign to make McCain prove he was eligible so that later he could say “See, even born outside the USA, it’s OK to run for President.” He knew he was eligible so that whole episode was extremely weird.
If he was adopted, his BC or the COLB would show an ammendment.
There is no indication of ammendment on the COLB but, if he just released the one he found among his mother’s belongings, it may show he was adopted.
Oh, that’s right, he can’t. If he were to show the Long Form BC and it had an ammended notation, it would be more than apparent that the COLB is indeed a fake and a Massive Fraud has taken place.
See post 263. Even if Obama weren't born in the US, his mom could obtain US citizenship for him easily and legally. Why in the world would she risk a felony conviction by trying to fraudulantly register his birth in Hawaii?
