Giant Log in Birthers' Eyes

True-blue Amurricans who see specks in Obama's birthright are overlooking some giant blots in our own.
Assuming that what I learned in school was not a Communist plot, the whole concept of birth certificates was imported to this continent, along with too many Europeans, for the very dubious benefit of the pre-existing population.
So before more people complain that Obama may not have the right to be president, I think we should carefully consider our own right to be here at all.

  1. To bring in the rights of non-American Continent Natives to be here feels like acquiescing to the birthers' nutty idea that Obama was born in Kenya.

    Yes, we should carefully consider our own right to be here, but that doesn't change the fact that Obama was quite clearly born in Hawaii, not Kenya. The rights of non-Native Americans I think are moot in the discussion.
