The Birther Movement: Last Resort of a Dying Group

Recently in the news, conservatives such as Donald Trump have been making a huge deal about Barack Obama's birth certificate, whether it is legitimate or not.  Trump claims that he has hired a team to research the origins of the president's birth, as if the Democratic Party pulled off the biggest scam in American history.  It's truly amazing to see that there are people who really believe that Obama wasn't born in our country, especially since there is so much evidence to prove he was. 

Let it be known, first and foremost, that Obama's Certificate of Live Birth has been released to the public, and the document has all of the necessary requirements to pass as proof that Barack Obama was born in America.  Whether you think this was forged or not, the document has undergone extensive checks from professionals, who all agree that this document is 100% legitimate and was not forged. 

More proof you say?  Certainly.  On the day Barack Obama was born, his name appeared in the local newspaper, under the area that contained the names of all newborn children that day.  This article is from August 4, 1961 - the date in which Obama was born.  The newspaper exposes that Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii.  This evidence was not faked, or sent into the newspaper by his parents.  The hospital, in which Obama was born, submitted this information to the newspaper, so nobody else was involved.  Its extremely unlikely that the hospital falsified the birth records of a random baby in 1961.

Conservatives seem so sure of themselves, with the only evidence on their side being a quote given from Obama's grandmother.  As you may know, it has recently been agreed upon that she misunderstood the translator speaking to her when she made the quote, and meant to say that Obama WAS NOT born in Kenya.  Not much evidence for a party that is so sure about these allegations.

So maybe we should really dig deep for the true reasons this party is clinging so tightly to the issue.  The Tea Party is in quite a bit of trouble in America.  After their leadership passed legislation to destroy unions, teacher's and public worker rights, the so called "party of the common man" is showing horrible approval ratings.  America is finally realizing that this pretend libertarian movement is really just full of shit.  The Tea Party is clinging to this issue because they have nothing left in their arsenal to help them win the 2012 presidential elections.  Donald Trump alone cannot win this election alone.  He is a man that borrowed millions from his family just to shipwreck business after business.  He appears on "reality" TV because he has nothing left to make him worthy of society's respect.  Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman cannot win this election alone.  They are bimbos of the highest regard, making headline after headline from their bumbling nonsense and irrational ideas.  The Tea Party is slowly fading back into the republican party from which it emerged.  In 10 years, it will be no more.  They know it.  We know it.  Which is why they cling to this extreme idea, that the president of the United States has pulled of the greatest con of all time. 

But I will ask one question.  Would Obama's citizenship and origin of birth be questioned if he was white?  I don't think so.  After the recent email that emerged from Marilyn Davenport, a Southern California Tea Party activist and member of the central committee of the Orange County Republican Party, we can truly look at the roots of their suspicions.  Racism... which is entirely new discussion.
