Obama’s Birth Certificate
The blog Politics Coast to Coast with the LA. Times, has a good story about the question of citizenship. Naturally in the savagery of a hotly contested presidential race, anything and everything will come up. Earlier on, apparently, John McCain’s having been born in the Panama Canal Zone was questioned. Throughout the campaign there’ve been a number of attempts to hurt Barack Obama using his unusual ancestry against him.
Fight the Smears has used the simple and minimalist approach. One unusual thing I got a kick out of is at the bottom of their page. It says, “Powered by Truth.” Sounds more like some of our conservative friends, doesn’t it?
The conservative blog Texas Darlin are the ones really trying to stir up the dirt. To me it sounds like more desperate straw-clutching by the McCain folks, but it is worrying. This kind of thing could take on a life of its own and do damage. I only hope I’m not contributing to it.
What’s your opinion? We’d like to know.
