Stupid Conspiracies. Voters have every right to ask candidates for information if they so choose. I’ve pointed out that it was seemingly fair game during the 2008 election for many on the left to badger my doctor and lawyer for proof that Trig is in fact my child. Conspiracy-minded reporters and voters had a right to ask... which they have repeatedly. But at no point – not during the campaign, and not during recent interviews – have I asked the president to produce his birth certificate or suggested that he was not born in the United States.
- Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin made two key points with her latest facebook post.
1. She personally has not pursued the issue of Obama's birth certificate.
2. Even though she has not raised the issue of Obama's birth certificate, she believes that others have every right to do so.
It is worth noting that Gov. Palin did not discount the various efforts underway that seek Obama's real birth certificate (Not just a Certificate of Life Birth). In fact she maintains that voters have every right to question candidates for such information.
She further points out that the left has shown no restraint in raising questions about Trig's real birth mother, even though this is of no consequence to the nation. On the other hand, Obama's birth location has major implications on his eligibility to be President of the United States.
Questions about Obama's birth certificate may be too controversial for a national figure such as Gov.Palin to pursue, but this central question begs to be answered. Voters have every right to know, and those who spearhead the effort to uncover the truth deserve our support.
