A brand-new chapter dawns in the birther controversy over President Obama's hidden birth certificate.
The Hawaii legislature has now officially passed a measure that would allow state officials to legally ignore each month's dozens of repeated requests by persons or organizations seeking to see the infant Obama's actual birth certificate.
For personal privacy reasons the certificate resides under government lock and key in Hawaii and, as is his right, Obama has never authorized its release.
That's a refusal that has only inflamed conspiracy theorists who theorize that if it's really legit, what's Obama's problem with disclosing it? The repeated non-response of spokesmen has been that's a silly issue.
Nearly three years ago at The Ticket's request, the presidential campaign of Barack Hussein Obama released a copy of his Certificate of Live Birth, which we promptly published right here.
In the ensuing months, however, that proved insufficient evidence for those who believe the twice-sworn 44th president might possibly maybe could have been born in Kenya, which could mean that he wasn't born an American even though his Kansas-born mother was American, which then still conceivably might possibly mean that Obama is an illegitimate president, as is, then, everything he's done since Jan. 20, 2009, they hope.
They want to see the real document.
Of course, while conservatives remember that it was Hillary Clinton who actually started this whole "Birther" stuff, the fact that the GOP (i.e. Michael Steele) has allowed the fringe elements on the Right to grab onto it as hard as they have is just hard to watch. Leave it alone people, the fact that Barry is hovering around 47% approve is enough to let you know what people think about where the country is heading.
