Two days ago Chris Matthews said the most obvious statement and declaration for 2011.... would be for Barak Obama to just go ahead and show his long form birth certificate. NYTIMES poll states 23% of Americans are not sure where Obama was born and 20% feel sure he was not an American. I hesitate to claim this but I agree with Christ Matthews.... go ahead Obama show your long form of your birth certificate, and while you are at it, let's see college records, social security numbers, childhood friends, Harvard Thesis, passports, "also-known-as" (aka), and anything else that might give us transparent background on who Obama is.
"Obama-gate" regarding his birth certificate is a matter of LAW, not opinion or feelings.

Quite frankly, I am happy that we finally have an man in office that to many represents African Americans, just as I would be happy to one day have a female in the office of President. I do wish for my friends who are black Americans that he was a stronger conservative, Biblically minded person that would leave a godly heritage for them to esteem. If we had an female American president I would be so happy if she was a feminist in the line of those listed with the Susan B. Anthony website. http://www.sba-list.org
Anyone who knows me personally can truly speak to this as being a truth in my life. I consider all people to be a human being created by God. And I even go further to state we are all of one race, the human race, decedents of Adam. So race is not nor ever has been a reason for me wanting to see Obama release his hospital signed original birth certificate.
Unlike many Americans, I have been to Kenya myself. I served on a mission team three years ago. Joyfully staying in the home of the Kenyan pastor, being part of a nightly community sing fest (even when I was dog tired from carrying huge stone, large metal bowls of sandy rock wet cement and filling bags of sand from the bottom of dry sea beds).
I have had the privilege of playing with the African children, going to their simple mud and concrete schools, making necklaces, puzzles, doing dramas and telling stories. I have sat underneath trees with smiling citizen of Kenya that shared with me how much they pray for America. Totally blown away by the unconditional love shown for me through the eyes and arms of the people in this lovely country.
