Michelle Obama, Birther?
(Note video @ .45: “…visited his home country, in Kenya…”)
You won’t believe this video. When I first heard about it I was dubious, but words have meaning, and if you say that your husband’s “home” country is Kenya, it’s pretty hard to deny.
The “Birther” movement has been ridiculed as fantasy by many, and for good reason. Why wouldn’t Hillary Clinton have made an issue of her opponent’s national status? Surely, as hard hitting as the Clinton’s are as politicians, they would make an issue of it. We know the reason that Senator John McCain would never do so, his RINO status of “be nice to your opponent” would keep him from broaching such an issue.
I have talked about the Birther movement before, and while I have never been a strong advocate of it for the reasons above, I did find the Obama’s response to challenges on producing his Birth Certificate a bit odd. Why not simply produce the original document and let a non-partisan body, in unison with members of the media, examine it and close the issue?
There is also the issue of the “original” Birther, who is a registered Democrat, and his legal challenges to try to gain access to the document. The President has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending himself to stave off having to produce his birth certificate and college records. This just doesn’t make sense. The accusation has been made that the youthful Obama (who called himself “Barry” at the time) actually gained some sort of college benefit for registering as “Kenyan” rather than “American” when he went to college. Or perhaps it is as simple as the fact that the President had very poor grades he doesn’t want the public to know about.
I do not know the answers to these questions, or why the President’s own relatives state he was born in Kenya. Or why the media seems satisfied with Hawaii sealing his records on the basis of “Identity theft”, but I do think that Michelle Obama has some explaining to do.
Why would any wife proclaim that their husband was Kenyan? It does not seem like something that any American would say by accident. If I were married, would my wife slip up and say, “My Husband’s home countries of Sweden, Norway, ect.? No, it would just be too–well, weird. I contend that people simply do not think that way.
I do not have all the answers, but I do know that the birthers just got a new ally, and her name is Michelle Obama.
