John Boehner said yesterday on Meet The Press, with the argumentative David Gregory hosting, that if the State of Hawaii asserts that Barack Obama was born there, it’s good enough for the Speaker of The House. He also takes the President at his word when Obama says that he’s a Christian. Mr. Gregory was far from satisfied with Boehner’s position. But Boehner declined, even when badgered by the host, to tell Americans what they should think or believe about those two issues. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
So, why do millions of Americans have doubts about the veracity of Obama’s historical roots as he’s presented them, and about his life-story? Here’s the link to the Meet the Press video, which includes a clip from a Fox News Frank Luntz focus group survey in Iowa, which reveals that some Americans believe that Obama is really a Muslim:
JB: David, it’s not my job to stand up and tell the American people what to think. Our job in Washington is to listen to the American people. Having said that, the State of Hawaii has said that he was born there. That’s good enough for me. The President says he’s a Christian. I accept him at his word.
DG: But isn’t that a little bit fast and loose? I mean, you are the leader in Congress and you’re not standing up to obvious facts and saying these are facts. If you don’t believe that, it’s nonsense.
JB: I just outlined the facts, as I understand them. I believe that the President is a citizen. I believe the President is a Christian. I’ll take him at his word.
DG: But, that kind of ignorance about whether he’s a Muslim doesn’t concern you?
JB: The American people have the right to think what they want to think. I can’t, it’s not my job to tell them.
DG: Why isn’t it your job to stand up and say, no, the facts are these? Didn’t John McCain do that…
David Gregory and friends would like to shut the questions up and never allow them to be asked again. He’s content to leave them unanswered. Let’s hope he and his partners in TV media, including Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck over at Fox News, are not successful.
So, why, again, do so many Americans have so many questions about who this man Obama really is and from whence came he?
There is one person who can answer the questions and put this turmoil to rest, by releasing all of his documentary history that to this point he has purposefully kept from public scrutiny. That man is Barack Hussein Obama.
