Now that’s finally settled, for everyone but those on the lunatic fringe who can’t be persuaded with facts: Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honululu, Hawaii, on Aug. 4, 1961. He’s a Leo.
The White House released Obama’s long-form birth certificate Wednesday morning and the president addressed the issue, saying he was bemused and surprised by how long this false story has persisted and why some people continued to believe he wasn’t an American, despite his release of a short-form certificate, two newspaper reports published days after his birth and eyewitness accounts of Obama as an infant in Hawaii.
Of course, some people hate Obama so much, and wanted to use the “birther” issue against him, that they won’t be persuaded. It makes you wonder if they know where their birth certificate is. How do we know they’re really Americans?
Where’s yours? Should we demand candidiates for school boards, city council seats and county offices produce one? Or should we demand this only from black people with a name that some people find unusual?
