I have a question: When are the birthers going to give up the ghost and admit that President Obama was born in the United States of America? I’m sure the answer is never. These people are, quite literally, crazy. The man was born here – we’ve seen his birth certificate – the whole idea is absolutely nuts. Then, I was reading on the Internet that they (the birthers) have convinced themselves that President Obama sealed his birth certificate with an executive order. On one website, they even link directly to the order. Well, I’ve read it three times and I don’t see anything that makes me believe that Obama has made the government less transparent. If you don’t believe me, read it for yourself.
Executive Order 13489 is actually very close in wording to another President’s Executive Order – Ronald Reagan’s from 1989. I’ve read both and, still, don’t see how either is more restrictive than any other. It seems pretty straight forward to me.
What do you think?
