The 43rd president elect Barack Obama is still dodging controversy over his birth. Many people and especially bloggers have been perpetuating the myth that Barack Obama is not a regular citizen of the United States of America. I see a lot of sources on the Internet that say Barack Obama cannot be the president of America because he was not really born in the great state of Hawaii. Or that his birth certificate is a forgery and that he was in reality born in Kenya or maybe Indonesia.
I, or for that matter anybody, would have thought that after the presidential election got over all these rumors and conspiracy theories would have died. But looking at the amount of Internet searchers or actual courtroom lawsuits, that is not the case. On the contrary they have intensified.
In fact in June Obama’s campaign had made the president elects birth certificate available to select media outlets for review and verification purposes. But this has not calmed the conspiracy theorists or right wing nuts. Also there have been sponsored advertisements in Chicago’s fine newspapers that have raised questions about the accuracy of the birth certificates and Obama’s eligibility. In fact many interest groups are raising money so that they can sponsor hats questioning the same on television.
So much so that even Hawaii’s director who looks after birth certificates department has issued a statement saying Obama certificate is genuine and issued by the concerned department but the rumors refuse to die out.
It seems the lands highest court system may have to jump into the fray to sort this out. So have you been bugged by this question or have you been asked pertinently about this issue by your friends and neighbors and office colleagues. What do you think about it. You think there is a legitimate case to be made out of this or do you think this is the pastime of the ideal mind.
