When I discovered Obama’s mother’s passport files posted on the Internet, I sent copies to Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sen. Lindsey Graham, explaining the passport problem and asking for an investigation. I also wrote a piece for the Western Center on Journalism, explaining the problem with Ann Dunham’s passport files. I had one simple question: If Obama was born in Hawaii, why wasn’t he included on his mother’s passport files? Passport regulations required a photo of parent and child and a copy of a hospital birth certificate.
I have a home in Louisville, KY, so I used my Kentucky address. My legal residence, however, is Arizona. I am concerned that someone in Congress apparently does not want any investigation into Obama’s eligibility to proceed.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been subjected to public ridicule for investigating Obama’s records since Congress refused. The American people want to know if their President is a citizen of the United States. That is not too much to ask.
I received a response from Sen. McConnell today that reads as follows:
When you contacted my office, you mentioned your concerns regarding President Obama’s eligibility to serve as President of the United States. During the 2008 election season, President Obama released a copy of his birth certificate stating he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961. Since the election, several public officials — including Republican Governor Linda Lingle – have viewed and certified the original document. The consensus is clear that President Obama is a natural-born citizen.
Sen. McConnell specifically avoided any mention of the passport problem, obviously because he knows that whoever was altering or photoshopping records failed to look into his mother’s passport files.
I have a suggestion to make. Let’s make it a two-fer. Let’s get rid of Obama and his crony, Mitch McConnell, who has been stopping up the lawful investigation of Obama’s eligibility.
