Editors note: We have no issue with the President being a Natural born citizen.
We think it is comical and Genius for The Donald to bring up these issues as he is now getting more media exposure than he was in the past. With Polls carrying him at below six percent, he is doing his best to get in the forefront. Taking the Birther baton and running with it doesn’t seem to be the best in political strategy.
Chances are he is doing the political dance away from his own issues that show a business man who uses cut throat techniques against those he does business with. Additionally, America is in financial crisis. Does one really want a President who deals with excessive debt by utilizing the bankruptcy laws to clean his slate and go back to doing business again.
America needs an Abraham Lincoln type who will pay back every penny of the debt as a matter or morality and commitment. He also stuck to principles, even though he side step the constitution to free the slaves out of bondage.
Trump doesn’t seem to have the qualities that will be necessary in the next Presidential cycle.
Politico published an opinion piece yesterday that essentially wrote off Donald Trump as a serious contender for the White House based solely upon “Trump’s newfound birtherism” which the author claims “is nothing more than a cheap machination.”
Anyone who has watched Donald Trump on his hit series “The Celebrity Apprentice” knows that Mr. Trump does not pull any punches when it comes to asking tough questions to famous people. It is totally in character for Donald Trump to ask President Obama the question, “Why not show your birth certificate to the American people and put the issue to rest?” The Daily Mail reported that Gover
nor “Abercrombie suggested that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Barack Obama may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health.”
I have personal experience with “birthers” and it is not a pleasant one. I was delivered by a midwife in a rural farming community in Tennessee. My parents, like their parents before them, were dirt poor. My birth was not registered with the state of Tennessee. It didn’t take long for me to realize that if you do not have a birth certificate in America, you will have to create an iron-clad paper trail proving you are a naturalized US citizen in order to protect your citizenship rights against “birthers.”
