    For Hawaii governor, discrediting anti-Obama 'birthers' is a top priority

    Neil Abercrombie knew Barack Obama's parents when the future president was born here in 1961, and he has been aggravated by the so-called birther movement, which alleges Obama was not born in the United States and thus should be expelled from office.

    Now Abercrombie has an office of his own — he became governor of Hawaii on Dec. 6. — and he intends to do something about it.

    For Hawaii governor, discrediting anti-Obama 'birthers' is a top priority - Los Angeles Times

    HONOLULU — Gov. Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, who befriended President Obama’s parents when they were university students here, has been in office for less than three weeks. But he is so incensed over “birthers” — the conspiracy theorists who assert that Mr. Obama was born in Kenya and was thus not eligible to become president — that he is seeking ways to change state policy to allow him to release additional proof that the president was born in Honolulu in 1961.

    A reporter for The Honolulu Advertiser also found two separate newspaper announcements of the president’s birth, one in The Advertiser on Aug. 13, 1961, and another in The Honolulu Star-Bulletin the next day. Both carried the words “Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama, 6085 Kalanianaole Highway, son, Aug. 4.”

    The state was so besieged by inquiries that Mr. Abercrombie’s predecessor, Linda Lingle, a Republican, signed a law allowing officials to ignore the queries as nuisances.

    bills like that are meant as a coded message that he is not really American

    ------------------------------

    CODE? This is no code. It's an accusation because he's black. Southern White Wingers are incensed a "black" guy is living in the "WHITE House".

    It doesn't matter what is "released". Those on the right will never accept Obama as an "American". How many still believe Obama took a 200 million dollar a day trip? These people believe that "Noah's Ark" was a true historical event. And someone will convince them a black president named Obama is an "American citizen"? It would be easier to convince them "Noah's Ark" never happened. Good luck on that!

    I like it when he says, "'It's an emotional insult. It is disrespectful to the president; it is disrespectful to the office'". ----> It's an emotional insult because Obama's parents were apparently close friends. Who wouldn't defend their good friends being slandered for political reasons by a bunch of idiots?

    Who on the right cares about respect or integrity? Seriously? The right doesn't respect teachers, scientists, professors, or anyone who's a Democrat. Why would they respect the President? It would be out of character.

    Looks like Chris Matthews is fed up and thinks Obama needs to come clean on the Birth Certificate issue. In tonights Hardball on TV he said this......."Why has the president himself not demanded they put out the original documents?" Matthews wonders.

    "If it exists, why not put it out?" Chris Matthews asks.

    Apparently he knows that Obamas COLB on the internet is a fraud and not the real deal.

    It's getting bad if Chris is busting on him.

    With Chris saying that, something more is up and he knows it.
    Thought I would never hear this from anyone at MSNBC. It is very suspicious when Chris Matthews is suddenly asking for BO’s BC to be released.

    McCain had to present his long form birth certificate in the 2008 campaign to the Senate Judicial Committee.

    I would think he would be more worried about the rebellion of the natives of the islands and their attempts to regain sovereignty!

    So why are we just hearing about this now? A new Governor and he's a democrat. I'm sure he was around two years ago, and could have come forward with this information. Now all he has done is added more fuel to the fire.
