Another Obama Birth Certificate Suit Thrown Out
An Ohio-based Obama birth certificate suit was thrown out on Friday.
Warren County magistrate Andrew Hasselbach ruled against David M. Neal saying in part that Neal relied too heavily on Internet rumor to bring forth his complaint.
In other words David M. Neal hasn't been able to produce any more reliable information that Obama was born anywhere other than Hawaii than anyone else has.
However, what is beginning to blow my mind is that the arguments in favor of the Hawaii hypothesis tend to be just as shallow.
I think the main one goes something like this: Obama is a natural born American citizen because Hillary Clinton would have exposed him if he wasn't.
As I've pointed out in this blog quite recently, the closest "every day" analogy to the Barack Obama birth certificate issue is starting a new job.
Under penalty of fines and various other nastiness, US employers are required to ask for and examine 1 - 2 documents to verify that an applicant is authorized to work in the United States.
The most common combination of documents is the state-issued driver's license, which establishes identity, and the Social Security card, which establishes US work eligibility.
The second most common document is the US Passport, which establishes both identity and US work authorization.
Now, according to the US Constitution, in order to be qualified to serve as President, an even higher standard is required - that the person be a natural born citizen of the United States.
What the Constitution is not very clear on is who's job it is to examine available evidence to prove that the person is actually a natural born citizen.
Until we figure that out, all this other chaos going on is completely irrelevant ...
