I’m Sure This Will Settle The Issue Once And For All

Certainly no one will ever question whether Obama was born in the US now!

Officials in Hawaii have tracked down papers indicating that President Obama was indeed born in their state, according to its new governor.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie, who took office in December, told Honolulu’s Star-Advertiser on Tuesday that “our investigation” indicates there is a recording of his birth.

“It actually exists in the archives, written down,” he said.

(…)

“It’s a matter of principle with me,” the 72-year-old said. “I knew his mom and dad. I was here when he was born. Anybody who wants to ask a question honestly could have had their answer already.”

On Tuesday, he again promised he would do “what I can do” to publicly verify that records show Obama was born in Hawaii and is a citizen of the United States, making him eligible to be President.

Probably a good time for me to repeat my summary of the birther debate in a nutshell:

“Barack Obama could clear up all these questions about his eligibility for the presidency if he would just produce his birth certificate.”

“Okay, here it is.”

“No, no, his birth certificate.

“Yes, this is it, right here.”

“No, no, his real birth certificate.”

“WTF?”

Fascinating Poll Results That Will Be Ignored

…Because apparently anything that more than 60 or 70% of Americans agree on must be some kind of wacky fringe leftist position that can be safely disregarded, like the public option and withdrawing from Iraq and not extending tax cuts for the rich.

  • 80 to 90+% of not just Americans, but of gun owners, want to make it harder for criminals, terrorists, and dangerously disturbed people to buy guns, favoring improvements in federal databases and background checks for all gun sales.  Why does the NRA hate gun owners?
  • The socialism that they rail against and see everywhere is more popular than the teabaggers are.  So if you’re looking for someone to identify as wacky and fringe, maybe it should be the guy holding the picture of the President Of The United States as a witch doctor with a bone through his nose.

I think the third bullet point is the only one that even has a chance of being heard.  But I fear that Obama is too committed to cutting Social Security for it to matter.  And I’m sure he can find enough Republicans and conservadems to make it happen.

If only we lived in a democracy, where the will of the people actually counted for something.
