The Unwinnable War

In yet another attempt to put an end to the absurd Birther conspiracy theories, Hawaii’s health director released a statement attesting that she has personally seen President Obama’s birth certificate in the Health Department’s archives:

“I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai’i State Department of Health verifying Barrack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago….”

On Oct. 31, Fukino originally tried to put an end to the belief among so-called “birthers” that Obama was not born in the United States and thus was ineligible to run for the office of president.

Despite Fukino’s statement today, the issue continued to resonate from Capitol Hill to the national airwaves to the blogosphere.

So how is this playing over at WorldNetDaily (aka “Birther Central”), you ask?  Shockingly, they have dismissed it entirely and responded by accusing Fukino of breaking the law.

Frankly, nothing is ever going to satisfy them because, at this point, they have way too much invested in it:

Just as Barack Obama’s Aug. 4 birthday is approaching, a law firm handling one of the legal challenges to his eligibility to be president is arranging for a fax blast to attorneys general in all 50 states pointing out their obligation to investigate possible perjury during the 2008 election.

The campaign is being run by Gary Kreep and the United States Justice Foundation, which is handling a lawsuit against Obama on behalf of former Ambassador Alan Keyes.

The fax messages cite evidence that suggests Obama may have been born in what now is Kenya.

“But the United States Constitution clearly says only a ‘natural born citizen’ may be elected president,” the message states. “I hope and pray that you will do your duty by fully investigating whether Barack Obama committed perjury, or violated another state law … by falsely claiming that he was constitutionally eligible to serve as president of the United States!”

The message to attorneys general says, “It is critical that your office fully investigate whether Barack Obama was born in Hawaii or not, for the answer to this question is the crux of the matter, and is of the utmost importance for the resolution of this extremely important constitutional issue.

WND is also encouraging its readers to send this postcard to President Obama on his birthday:

And if you want to know just how far gone they are, Joseph Farah is already laying out the line of succession for when Obama is removed from office (Hillary becomes President because everyone else was complict in Obama’s fraud):

I think it’s safe to say I have been ahead of the curve on the issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility.

In the interests of staying there, I think it’s time to talk about what happens if Obama continues to refuse the rising chorus of calls for him to prove his eligibility – or, if he is found to be outright ineligible.

As usual, the geniuses who crafted our Constitution have already thought this through and made provisions for a time such as this.
