This cracked me up. In yet another investigation into where Obama was born, CNN discovers that he is, in fact, an American citizen. But the story also included this gem:
Rick Smethurst, a 2008 John McCain voter who now lives in Obama’s childhood home in Hawaii, counts himself among the doubters. He said he wants to find someone who saw Obama immediately after the president was born.
Did they even need to point out he was a McCain voter? Of course he was. So now, after spending years doubting the certificates, they grudgingly accept their validity, but now want someone who saw the Kenyan usurper right after birth. And guess what? We have that:
Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie said he did. Abercrombie, a Democrat, was friendly with Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, and remembers celebrating the birth.
“Of course, we had no idea at the time that the future president of the United States was that little boy, that little baby,” Abercrombie recalled. But “we are very, very happy … that took place.”
Professor Alice Dewey of the University of Hawaii was a faculty adviser to Dunham and also knew the future president when he was a child. She called the controversy “funny.” She said there is “no way” Obama wasn’t born in the state.
Dewey remembered a conversation in which Dunham compared the birth of Obama with that of his sister, Maya, who was born overseas.
“She said, ‘When I had Maya, it was a lot of more difficult because Indonesia doesn’t believe in painkillers while you’re giving birth. … Of course, in the United States, giving birth to Barry (Obama’s childhood nickname) was quite different and much more comfortable,’ ” Dewey recalled.
Waidelich’s mother, Monika, said she believes she saw Obama in Honolulu’s Kapi’olani Medical Center next to her son in 1961.
“In those days, there were hardly any other black babies,” she said.
The hospital wouldn’t show patient records from 1961, but the state’s African-American population was less than 1% at the time.
Regardless of the evidence, there may be no convincing some of those who question the president’s origins.
There simply is no amount of evidence that will be enough for these clowns, Donald Trump and Franklin Graham and the rest of these assholes stirring up this crap should be shunned from polite society.
