A post I wrote about Barack Obama being born in America was linked to on a message board arguing about whether or not the President is born in America. Here is an example of the way the mind of birthers work.
Where did anybody say anything about obammy coming to someone's house to present the document? If he did, I missed it. You know as well as I do that if obammy would release it, there would be any number of news services there to examine it and publish pictures of it. Aren't you grasping at straws here?

Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate
If it comes from a dead internet link then it must be true. Obama announced his Senate candidacy in 2003. I didn't he Obama had a Kenyan father before he ran for president. I never recalled it mentioned during his Senate campaign. The biggest news about that Senate race was which Republican would step up for the right to lose badly to Obama. The loser-winner of that contest was Alan Keyes.
World Net Daily ran the bogus story that Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie couldn't find Obama's birth certificate. Fact: Obama's birth certificate exists and has been verified.
In an attempt to quash persistent rumors that President Obama was not born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961, Hawaii's health director reiterated Monday afternoon that she has personally seen 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 Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack 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...."
You can believe USA Today or World Net Daily. The latter has Chuck Norris has an investigative reporter.
Update: Franklin Graham claims Obama will not release his birth certificate.
News flash to Mr. Graham: this is Obama's birth certificate.
