As President Barack Obama’s birthday approaches, a growing number of Americans are inundating the White House with greeting cards. But thousands of them include a message that may not be too welcome. When Mr. Obama blows out the candles on August 3rd, he’ll find stacks of cards that, along with the birthday wishes, ask: where’s the birth certificate?
It is the latest effort on the part of WorldNetDaily.com’s editor Joseph Farah to pressure the President into disclosing background information that has been withheld from public scrutiny, such as the details surrounding his birth, his school transcripts, scholarship sources, college thesis and Harvard Law Review articles. Mr. Farah, along with Jerome Corsi, has been a prominent figure in the debate over the sufficiency of the information provided by Mr. Obama to establish whether he is a natural born citizen of the United States, as required by the Constitution in order to hold the office.
While the message contained in the cards may cause some discomfort in the White House, their sale by WND will also help finance the effort to post the familiar “where’s the birth certificate?” question on billboards across the nation.
The non-response by President Obama to the requests for more information about his background is reminiscent of Sen. John Kerry’s handling of the claims made by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth during the 2004 presidential campaign.
While Kerry ignored their questions, hoping they’d go away, the clamor for answers became louder and more broad-based with time, until it crippled his presidential aspirations. What the Administration may be failing to understand is that the birth certificate question has become a symbol of the public’s desire to learn more details about the background of a man they suddenly realize they hardly know.http://www.examiner.com/x-5325-Orlando-Republican-Examiner~y2009m7d29-Obamas-birthday-greetings-ask-wheres-the-birth-certificate
