First off, I am neither Republican nor Democrat. I am, if I must be pigeon-holed, a Libertarian with leanings toward conservativism.
That having been said, I've been watching the latest hoopla over President Obama's birth certificate with some bemusement.
Yesterday (or was it the day before) Mr. Obama released the long form of his birth certificate. Putting aside, for the moment, the fact that the Hawaiian officials have said that they never release the long form, even when requested by the owner, it would seem that there are some die-hard "birthers" out there who still refuse to believe it.
My question is this...
If you are one of those "birthers", where is your proof that Mr. Obama was born outside of the US? It seems a simple matter. If you belioeve he was born in Nigeria (or whereever), simply bring forth a birth certificate from that country proving your case.
Like I said, I'm neither Democrat nor Republican, nor do I really care one way or the other. But I got to tell you if he has one to prove his side and you don't have one to prove your side, I gotta go with the guy who has the hard evidence.
