The issue of Obama's birth certificate may not be over

Ok, while this is not a mainstream news source, if it is true, we may not heard the end of Obama's birth certificate bruhaha.
At this point, Supreme Court Justice David Souter's Clerk informed Philip J. Berg, the lawyer who brought the case against Obama, that his petition for an injunction to stay the November 4th election was denied, but the Clerk also required the defendants to respond to the Writ of Certiorari (which requires the concurrence of four Justices) by December 1. At that time, Mr. Obama must present to the Court an authentic birth certificate, after which Mr. Berg will respond.

I see so many wrong things in that article it is completely laughable.

"It almost makes you believe that the people who voted for Obama have been living in an alternative universe."

First off, if that's not condescending to the majority of America, I don't know what is.

"After all, under the first six years of President Bush's stewardship, the economy soared to heights previously unknown, consumer confidence was at an all-time high, unemployment levels were unprecedentedly low, and the affordability of both gas and food was never a topic of conversation. But from the minute Democrats gained control of Congress in 2006, the downward spiral began:

* Consumer confidence plummeted.
* The cost of regular gasoline soared.
* Unemployment escalated by 10%.
* Households saw $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate through stock and mutual fund losses.
* Home equity dropped by trillions of dollars and untold numbers of homes are in foreclosure.
* Food prices skyrocketed over 30% in 1 year."

The economy had been hurting before 2006, however, it ran under the radar. The unemployment rate was NOT unprecedentedly low. At the very lowest it hit 4.6%, which is low, but Clinton had a lower rate than that during his term -- 4.0%. It increased to 6.0% in 2003 -- during a Republican congress, and then started to come back down to 4.6% during 2006 / 2007 until it has shot up to 6.5% at today's rate.

The raging economy she is talking about is the housing bubble -- which THAT turned out to be a good thing! The raging economy she is talking about was purchased on CREDIT -- invisible money. That must be the fundamentally strong economy John McCain was talking about.

If Democrats, in the two years they've controlled Congress, are the cause of this economic turmoil, may I remind you then they were aided by a Republican president? What measures and policies have Democrats passed that would lead to this downturn? She also failed to point to the ballooning budget and trade deficit that the Republican controlled Congress AND the Democratically controlled Congress BOTH got us into. Republicans in Congress and Republican Bush never touched off shore oil drilling in the years they were in office until it was election time -- all of a sudden it became an issue. Is spending $10 BILLION a month in Iraq a show of fiscal conservatism?

For what it's worth:

Update Nov. 1: The Associated Press quoted Chiyome Fukino <> as saying that both she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama's original birth certificate.

Fukino also was quoted by several other news organizations. The Honolulu Advertiser quoted Fukino as saying the agency had been bombarded by requests, and that the registrar of statistics had even been called in at home in the middle of the night.
Honolulu Advertiser, Nov. 1 2008: "This has gotten ridiculous," state health director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said yesterday. "There are plenty of other, important things to focus on, like the economy, taxes, energy." . . . Will this be enough to quiet the doubters? "I hope so," Fukino said. "We need to get some work done."
Fukino said she has “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures."

is some debate about this and the validity, one of the reasons why it may not be mainstream. I just wanted to toss this out there.

I am a Republican through and me it doesn't matter. OBama is Prez. Lets hope he makes the right decisions.

They tried to do this with McCain early on. The whole thing is a non-issue.

They're both American. We should devote our time to actual issues that will actually mean something.



If none of this matters, then why can't the Gov. of California run for Pres.?

Duh, because he's the terminator.

The Gov could never get the Republican nomination....not even close to being conservative enough. He's come out fully for gay marriage. Ahhnold has equated the status of gay marriage in America today with the status of inter-racial marriage in the 1950s! Ahhnold is fully behind court challenges to the recently passed referendum banning gay marriage in CA. Ahhnold is a true, old-fashioned Republican moderate. You can hardly find them in the Republican Party today!! The neo-cons have ostracized them!!

now that would be a scary situation.

Arnold is American too isn't he?

He wasn't born here though and to be able to run for President you have to have been born here.
