Birther Movement Bull: Officials in Kansas Voting On Whether Or Not To Keep President Obama On Ballot For November
After having the White House release his birth certificate and the state of Hawaii verifying that President Barack Obama was indeed born there on multiple occasions, you would think people would leave this Birther Movement bull behind and acknowledge that YES, this black man was born here and is the President of the United States. But then again, we know some folks just have to keep up drama and trouble to make themselves feel important. Such is the case in Kansas right now, where the same tired allegations that President Obama was born in Kenya were brought up again by a Manhattan, Kansas resident. The resident, a man named James Montgomery, argued to the State Objections Board that he doesn’t think the President has an actual valid birth certificate, and by doing so, he’s trying to push the Board to take President Obama’s name off of the ballot for the November election. That of course, will only leave one candidate left to vote for–and that’s fool a** Mitt Romney.
According to Kansas CBS affiliate KWCH, the three member objection board, who didn’t want to rule on Thursday when they heard arguments, decided to wait and obtain more information and certified documents from Hawaii before ruling. They are scheduled to meet up again on Monday to make a decision. The President’s campaign didn’t send a representative to the hearing, but instead sent a letter in replacement, letting everyone know that this matter had been touched on at an exhausting level, and the President’s place of birth had already been verified. According to KWCH, the Board dismissed an earlier objection in April to the President’s candidacy, and a ruling couldn’t be made because the President hadn’t been made the Democratic Party’s candidate (they had to wait until the Democratic National Convention). Now they are going to look over more information and come to a decision next week.
If they have common sense, they’ll keep his name on the ballot. But then again, we know the lengths some racist folks will go to suppress the vote. It’s an absolute shame that we’re still talking about this crap after the President has been more than forthcoming with his birth certificate and doing what was necessary to prove he was born here. I wish folks would use the same energy to persuade Mitt Romney to show his taxes and fully explain what his policies are since we only have 53 days until the election. Ugh. But hey, this is just a prime example why we need to get out here, make sure we have the right forms of ID ready and vote, and get everybody who can vote to do the same. Because this foolishness? I’m about sick of…
