What Really Happened

Hawaii has two major newspapers, the Honolulu Advertiser and the Star Bulletin.

BOTH newspapers include birth announcements, and BOTH newspapers record the August 4th, 1961 birth of Barack Obama.

The Honolulu Advertiser The Star Bulletin

Now, McCain's (Rove's) useful idiots will scream that these are fakes, that they are part of this grand conspiracy by Obama's parents to smuggle a newborn baby from Kenya into Honolulu to obtain a birth certificate and birth announcements. But what is lacking in their story is MOTIVE. It's not like Obama's parents knew back then that Barack would go into politics, and need to be "Natural Born." Why bother with such a deception, which includes a very risky flight half way around the world with a newborn baby. Under US law, Barack is a US citizen no matter where he was born because his mother was an American citizen, born and raised in Kansas. The question of location is only relevant to the "Natural Born" requirement to be President. Barack's parents could not have known at the time of his birth that this would be an issue.

And note that in one of the announcements, a residential address is given. Does that sound like the parents just arrived from Kenya? Check it out for yourself on Google Earth; it is a house, not an apartment or motel.

At the end, this is just plain old fashioned harassment by McCain's people. Under US law the burden of proof rests with the accuser. But the people pushing this citizenship nonsense keep inventing new allegations and demanding Obama prove them wrong. Folks, that approach is the Napoleonic code of justice, which died with, well, Napoleon. Obama does not have to respond to each and every mud-sling that Berg and his people can come up with.

Worse, this whole citizenship issue distracts from the real issues of the economy and the war. Obviously, McCain's people are desperate to find anything that will take voters' minds off of the economy and war and focus it someplace else, and this tabloidism is intended as such bait.

The election is less than a week away. Stay focused. Stay on target. The economy is nearly dead from 8 years of GOP leadership and pointless wars. Don;t get suckered into another 4 years of the same by a little mud-slinging.
