THERE’S MORE TO IT THAN A SIMPLE BIRTH CERTIFICATE
First of all, let’s not confuse “un-American” with anti-American here. Barack Obama is generally the former rather than the latter.
Heightened interest in Donald Trump’s obsession with Obama’s non-birth certificate, and Jerome Corsi’s coming book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” is in large part, driven by a desire to understand why this president behaves the way he does. It’s simply part of the attempt to solve the elusive puzzle that is Barack Obama.
Continuing questions about his birth, (due mostly to Obama’s unwillingness to release his birth certificate) and skepticism of his patriotism persist because many Americans believe that Obama is unconcerned with typical American principles, traditions and values. It just doesn’t add up and we’re doing our damnedest to reconcile it.
Why the refusal to place his hand over his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance? Why did he object to wearing a flag lapel pin during the 2008 campaign? While hands over hearts and flag pins on lapels don’t confirm one’s patriotism any more than showing up for church every Sunday proves one’s faith in God, it is logical to assume that Obama’s abject refusal to participate in simple displays of patriotism signals something, isn’t it?
Remember America’s president standing beside Mexican president Felipe Calderón on the White House lawn as they bashed the state of Arizona? Or perhaps his refusal to recognize the uniqueness of American Exceptionalism? How about his pathetic penchant for bowing to foreign leaders? And who could forget our president’s insistence on criticizing America during his world apology tours? Obama in Germany: “America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive in the past.” It’s all enough to make Sean Penn proud.
Soon after Obama was elected to the senate, he boarded a plane for Kenya to campaign for his cousin Raila Odinga in that country’s 2007 presidential election. Obama spoke at rallies throughout Kenya on his cousin’s behalf, who for his part, promised to implement strict Sharia law if elected. The cousin lost, which didn’t sit awfully well with his supporters bestautolenders.com.
The persistence of those who question Obama’s birthplace or patriotism is not due to stupidity or insanity, as suggested by the president’s water carriers in the Obama Media Group. It is a result of this president’s words and actions, and a nagging belief that he does not have America’s best interests at heart.
THAT, my friends, is a whole lot more important than a birth certificate, a hand over the heart, or a flag lapel pin.
But the president did celebrate Earth Day, didn’t he?
