While I have never questioned that the President was born in Hawaii, I have long and repeatedly maintained that he should authorize the release of his long form birth certificate, that there is no go reason why he shouldn’t, and that people are rightly curious as to why he has not.
Well it seems the incoming Democrat Gov. of Hawaii agrees with me.
Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie wants to find a way to release more information about President Barack Obama’s Hawaii birth and dispel conspiracy theories that he was born elsewhere.
“Just release the long form” has always seemed like an unassailable position to me. I don’t get how anyone could be opposed to it. It is the intuitive, common sense, default position. Those who get their back up about it seem to me to fall primarily into two classes – either liberal Obama apologists who construe any opposition to the President as inherently malevolent and likely racist and moderate and conservative conspiracy phobics who want to shout down any kind of conspiracy talk lest it taint political discourse. (Conservative conspiracy phobics have an interest in protecting the brand. Moderate conspiracy phobics have an interest in maintaining the unquestioning acceptance of the conventional wisdom. There is much overlap as well.)
