Uh-Oh, ABC News and Chris Matthews Jump on the Birther Bandwagon

“Birthers”, those calling for President Obama to produce his birth certificate, have some company. Now Chris “thrill up my leg” Matthews and ABC News have joined the chorus.

The new governor of Hawaii, Democrat Neil Abercrombie, a college friend of the president’s parents, actually stirred the pot when he said that he would produce the birth certificate if elected. Well, he’s been elected, but still no birth certificate.

From ABC.news:

Officials in Hawaii say they have located President Obama’s birth certificate indicating that he was born in the state, but have yet to produce the document at the heart of a long-simmering conspiracy theory

“Our investigation is showing, it actually exists in the archives written down,” Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie told Honolulu’s Star-Advertiser.

“What I can do, and all I have ever said, is that I am going to see to it as governor that I can verify to anyone who is honest about it that this is the case,” he told the paper.

Abercrombie said the controversy over publicly producing the document “has a political implication for 2012 that we simply cannot have.”

It remains unclear if the document found in the archives was Obama’s actual long-form birth certificate, which “birther” activists have clamored for, or if it was simply a record that such a document exists.

The plot thickens.

    I suspect the reason “birthers” want the birth certificate is to see what it says about the father, but I don’t follow this issue, so can’t say for sure.

    I agree about it being made an issue (which was ridiculous) about John McCain. The double standards applied by the left never cease to amaze.

    My suspicion is that the administration trots out the “natural born citizen” issue every now and again when they want to divert attention from something more substantive. And here we are discussing it instead of something more substantive.

    It does not matter if Obama was born in Hawaii. To be president you must be a natural born citizen. That means both parents must be citizens. Obama’s father was not an American citizen which means Obama is not natural born…….which makes him ineligible to serve as our president and our congress is turning a blind eye to it. But they did hesitate to make John McCain prove he was natural born.
