How depressing, I suppose I'm banned from the conservative movement for wanting evidence the president is eligible to hold office. The problem with anti-birthers is simple. They can't produce Obama's long form vault copy birth certificate. I looked at my own Birth Certificate just recently, and found much more information than you'll ever find on Obama's certification of live birth posted online. Asking Americans to have faith in a man who's been caught blatantly lying in his own autobiographies seems more "crazy" than wanting this guy to show his credentials to hold the highest, most powerful office in the land. Now, I make no accusations toward the president about his citizenship, but I do accuse him of hiding something. Many lawsuits have been brought on this issue, but instead of just giving up the BC, birther lawyers have been fought every step of the way. All of the lawsuits have one thing in common: They are all dismissed on "lack of standing" or "lack of jurisdiction." This means, the court decided it didn't even have the authority to hear the case, or We the People haven't had the authority to bring the case. Suspiciously, instead of releasing the certificate, the Justice Department has used countless taxpayer dollars to tie the lawsuits up in red tape, as well as delay tactics. The State of Hawaii has only fanned the flames of controversy, by talking about the document (violating privacy rights), and then claiming it can't be released because it violates Obama's privacy. How can you send out a press release on a private document? Does this make sense to anyone? With another twist, now the Hawaii attorney general has decided not to back up anything in those press releases, declining to comment instead.
Now, I'm not in Obama's shoes, but if I and I didn't have anything to hide, or I wanted the people of the United States to stop questioning my eligibility, I'd release the BC and be done with it. Why drag this out in the courts for over a year?
In the end, this is actually a good thing for birthers. It's like when Atheists get fired up about God, screaming that he doesn't exist and trying to ridicule people that believe in Him. If there is no God, then why worry about whether people worship him or not? I look at conservatives attacking birthers as the same thing. Why would you go out of your way to ridicule something you claim is too ridiculous to take seriously in the first place? Why would Glenn Beck be on the hunt for Truthers if they weren't on to something?
I want to be very clear, believing in a theory can be foolish. Just look at global warming and climategate. The only thing more foolish is having faith in a government, which has been caught lying to us more than once.
