A curious lack of curiosity

    "Why won’t President Obama give the nation that elected him a verifying look at the original “long-form” version of his birth certificate?

    It’s important to grasp the weird fact that this simple request — requiring nothing more than a nod of the presidential head — ranks as fightin’ words to American journalists....

    The media have made their aversion to proof perversely clear: Whatever Obama does, their jarringly unified message is that he certainly should not direct the state of Hawaii to make public his original, long-form birth certificate....

    Why won’t the president just give us a look at the original birth certificate and be done with it?

    This is the mystery behind the unease “out there,” unease the mainstream media are now simultaneously picking up on even as they try to squelch it....

    So why won’t this president — who promised the American people an unprecedented level of transparency — reveal his original long-form birth certificate?

    Unheeded, the “natural born” controversy will roil indefinitely, further stirred by Hawaiian law (Section 338-17.8, titled “Certificates for children born out of State”), which makes state birth documentation available to children born out of state, even born out of the country.

    None of this is healthy. Not the president’s suspicious secrecy. Not the media’s protective absence of curiosity.

    It almost makes it seem as if someone might have something to hide."

  3. Nothing BIASED about Factlesscheck, is there? <rolling eyes>

    And by the way, when did the government begin relying on third party vendors with a political agenda to verify legal documents for public view?

    Now, back to the question you and your ilk keep running from, "Why won’t President Obama give the nation that elected him a verifying look at the original “long-form” version of his birth certificate?

    It's a simple question, really it is! And, there is only one logical answer; he can't.
