Is your birth certificate real? Were you really born here? Well Barack Obama was born in the United States of America and floating around the internet, news site, and some national newspapers is his a picture of his birth certificate (for a larger one check it out here.) But still people don’t believe him, or the state of Hawaii.
The debate about the President and his country of birth is back all over the news. I guess when people don’t have the health care bill to discuss they want to bring this up. I’ve even stupidly watched Andersen Cooper interview Rep. Bob Wagner’s from Montana talk about his bill to require presidential candidates to prove they are natural-born citizens before appearing on the Montana ballot gained national notoriety. I was in and out, but I’m pretty sure he discussed Obama in that interview.
The new Hawaii governor, Neil Abercrombie, went so far as to add a line item to a bill commemorating Hawaii as the 50th state in the union saying “Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961.” Abercrombie did this in 2009 shortly before stepping down to run for governor in 2010.
We’re still trying to figure out why this is in the news, and yes, we realize the irony of that statement since technically we’re perpetuating the same story thus inciting more stories about the President and his true origin of birth.
But being a Hawaii based news site we thought we needed to perpetuate the obvious story that the President can be our President. We’re hopeful this story can go away soon because we’re running out of things to talk about around it.
