Hawaii’s Governor Abercrombie (D) wants something revealed and he believes he can be the revealer. In an Associated Press (AP) dispatch, through YahooNews, Abercromie muses about President Obama’s lack of revelation which could quell the controversy surrounding his place of birth (POB.) I have written a couple of articles regarding the “birthers” and what I consider their silly incessant banging and clanging around Obama’s family closet. Obviously, no one has paid attention to my articles, except for a couple of folks commenting when the articles were new. The main points I attempted to raise in my posts, was all the federal employees having anything to do with the President’s security clearance, and any other background information, would have been involved in a large conspiracy to cover for the President’s having been born in Kenya, Pakistan, Indonesia or on the moon. Another point, I attempted to make in the past, was we are wasting our time with his POB, when there are so many other Obama proclivities toward progressive ideas through which he could be attacked or brought to accountability. Those who read my posts know (I hope) I am no supporter of President Obama for the most part, but I do believe in respecting the office, which after all, comes to us from the United States Constitution. So, let us get to Mr. Abercromie’s desires regarding President Obama’s POB:
Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie wants to find a way to release more information about President Barack Obama’s Hawaii birth and dispel conspiracy theories that he was born elsewhere.
Abercrombie was a friend of Obama’s parents and knew him as a child, and is deeply troubled by the effort to cast doubt on the president’s citizenship.
The newly elected governor will ask the state attorney general’s office about what can be done to put an end to questions about Obama’s birth documentation from Aug. 4, 1961, spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Tuesday.
Abercrombie says he was a friend of young Obama’s parents and he attended events where they and young Obama were present and his desire for now is to query Hawaii’s attorney general to find if there is a way to get proof of the President’s POB. While I believe the governor is sincere, my first question to Mr. Abercrombie would be: why not ask the person most affected by the POB controversy … that would be POTUS. Here’s some more from the AP article:
“He had a friendship with Mr. Obama’s parents, and so there is a personal issue at hand,” Dela Cruz said. “Is it going to be done immediately? No, the first thing on our list is the economy.”
It’s unclear what Abercrombie could do because Hawaii’s privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn’t have a tangible interest.
It appears anyone looking to perch on one of the limbs of Mr. Obama’s family tree, while examining the leaf that would resolve the issue, will fall out of the tree, unless Mr. Obama decides to allow the scrutiny.
