And Iím not asking Obama to show me anything. Iím asking someone, anyone, with the authority to do so, to verify it in light of all the red flags that have cast doubt upon his status.
Someone with authority?
Here you go Denise, this should put your mind at rest:
Update, Nov. 1: The director of Hawaiiís Department of Health confirmed Oct. 31 that Obama was born in Honolulu.
The Associated Press quoted Chiyome Fukino as saying that both she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama's original birth certificate.
Honolulu Advertiser, Nov. 1 2008: "This has gotten ridiculous," state health director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said yesterday. "There are plenty of other, important things to focus on, like the economy, taxes, energy." . . . Will this be enough to quiet the doubters? "I hope so," Fukino said. "We need to get some work done."
Alvin Onaka is the authority when it comes to the question of Obamaís citizenship Denise, heís the first, and possibly last person that the Supreme Court would call to verify Obamaís status.
Of course you donít believe him do you. Iíd hazard a guess that there isnít anyone you would believe, seeing doesnít always guarantee believing Denise, whatever anyone says thereíll always be a reason to doubt if you really donít want to believe.
As for one anyone challenging Obama during the electoral college, well, itís not likely to happen unless you can find two politicians willing to commit political suicide, the risks are too high. No Democrat will do it, for obvious reasons, and if a Republican challenges Obamaís status and they turn out to be wrong that would be the end of him and possibly the whole Republican party. TheyĎd be about as popular as Lee Harvey Oswald wearing an Al Qaeda t-shirt while kicking a kitten.
And what would they gain if they challenged him? Biden would certainly be acting President for a few years while Obama fought the decision in court. Heíd be in effect a lame-duck caretaker President and that would almost certainly stifle his ability to lead your country out of the present mire. Thereís no upside to forcing the issue Denise, itís a little bit like cutting your nose off to spite your face, you might be proved right but youíll lose more than you can possibly gain doing it.
