The measure approved Tuesday by the state Legislature would carve an exemption in the state’s public records law and allow officials to ignore all kinds of duplicative requests, including those for Obama’s birth certificate. Hawaii Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino has issued two statements since 2008 saying she had seen vital records proving Obama is a natural-born American citizen. Obama was born in Honolulu to a Kenyan father and an American mother. But state officials say they still get between 10 and 20 e-mails each week seeking verification of Obama’s birth. The bill now goes to Gov. Linda Lingle. SOURCE: Newsone.com
Okay, I never really gave this issue too much thought until now. Obama made many speeches that reflected his committed desire to bring more transparency to government and if I’m not mistaken, that does include him. But for some reason he won’t settle this little debate by showing he’s a natural born citizen? With this in place, its’ turned something that almost appeared as a ‘non-issue’ into a concern. This move now makes me wonder what exactly is he hiding? What bugs me most about this is that we now officially have one President who has never been ‘authenticated’. I smell something foul, folks.
