Loren Collins sends along a video of a local birther (who has tried to indict President Barack Obama in a common law grand jury) that approached Rep. Nathan Deal, a candidate for governor, at the Georgia Christian Alliance held the Faith, Family and Freedom Kickoff and asked him about the president’s citizenship.
Deal says that the doesn’t “shy away from hard questions” like Obama’s birth certificate. What conspiracy theorist doesn’t think they are asking “hard questions”? Jim Garrison was asking hard questions when he unsuccessfully tried Clay Shaw for the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The 9/11 Truthers believe they are asking “hard questions.” The one common theme is they all rely on conjecture and half-truths and no amount of evidence is enough for them.
He adds that the president can clear this up by telling him where he can direct his constituents, who Deal blames for his crusade, where they can go “to see authentic documentation, that he says is authentic, to satisfy their curiosity.”
Obama’s birth certificate has been online since June 2008. It has been independently examined and determined to be legitimate. Since there is a legitimate copy online, why hasn’t Deal directed his “constituents” (and I doubt he is referring to the citizens of Georgia’s Ninth Congressional District at this point) there to view it for themselves. Is Nathan Deal calling this copy a fake?
Here is the video:
