Sarah Palin was on Rusty Humphries show and responded to a question on Obama's birth certificate. Here's the transcript:
Would you make the birth certificate an issue if you ran?
I think the public, rightfully, is still making it an issue. I don’t have a problem with that. I don’t know if I would have to bother to make it an issue ’cause I think there are enough members of the electorate who still want answers.
Do you think it’s a fair question to be looking at?
I think it’s a fair question, just like I think past associations and past voting record — all of that is fair game. You know, I’ve got to tell you, too: I think our campaign, the McCain/Palin campaign didn’t do a good enough job in that area. We didn’t call out Obama and some of his associates on their records and what their beliefs were and perhaps what their future plans were. And I don’t think that that was fair to voters to not have done our jobs as candidates and as a campaign to bring to light a lot of the things that now we’re seeing made manifest in the administration.
I mean, truly, if your past is fair game and your kids are fair game, certainly Obama’s past should be. I mean, we want to treat men and women equally, right?
Hey, you know, that’s a great point, in that weird conspiracy-theory freaky thing that people talk about that Trig isn’t my real son. And a lot of people say, “Well you need to produce his birth certificate! You need to prove that he’s your kid!” Which we have done. But yeah, so maybe we could reverse that and use the same [unintelligible]-type thinking on them.
The Left, of course especially morons like Charles Johnson and Andrew Sullivan are pouncing on this as proof that Governor Palin is a deranged 'birther'.
What she's actually saying is it's not her issue,but that it's fair game for those who want to question it...and she elaborated on that here.
For those interested in a detailed look at this issue, this article of mine mine might provide food for thought.
One more time - I personally think the people who are working this angle are wasting time and energy, since the Supreme court will absolutely not touch this with a ten foot pole - for fear of civil unrest, if nothing else.
And my personal opinion is that while President Obama may likely have been born in Hawaii,there is obviously something else on his birth certificate that he doesn't want us to see, and he's deovted considerable time,money and energy towards that end.I will leave it to the imagination of my readers as to what that might be.
The voters had and have a right to full disclosure, and I hope Obama resolves this matter by releasing his records, since it's simply the right thing to do. As president, he took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution, and putting to rest any doubts about this matter obviously falls within his oath of office.
