New Hawaii governor pours gas on smoldering “birther” controversy

Hawaii’s newly installed Governor Neil Abercrombie walked by the quietly growling pack of “birther” dogs and poked a stick in their fence.  Now they’re returning to full-throated baying.  Good move, Governor!

As governor, Abercrombie says he’s goan do sump’n ’bout this h’yeah “birther” foolishness, reportedly perceiving it as a mainland slight against Hawaiian Islanders’ legitimate claims to be considered fully American.  He thinks challenges to Obama are just a proxy for continental suspicions about them all.

What seems as certain as anything can possibly be is that he won’t reveal the original “long form” birth certificate of Barack Obama.  Not even Julian Assange could manage that.  As one of the commenters on Lucianne.com said, politicians never hide good news.  Our 44th occupant of the White House has gone to considerable expense — reportedly several million dollars in legal fees — to keep that particular record concealed along with other records which might furnish further insight into his personal history including passports and college records, particularly the records of his financial aid while in college.  All the public is going to get is one more copy of the certificate alleging that a long form exists, which is the same thing Kenya has produced showing that they have a long form claiming he was born over there.

Whatever.  And nobody’s going to know for sure any time soon since Mr. Obama keeps his personal background information in an oddly secretive, suspicion-provoking way.  When presidents work this hard at hiding something, it’s not unreasonable to wonder why.  Some say Obama’s birthplace isn’t the biggest problem on that long form, but who his father actually was.  I couldn’t say, but you have to wonder about a guy who would let a critic suffer a prison sentence rather than just show his birth certificate.
