Time for Another Birther Smackdown.
The Right Scoop has posted a video titled “Official States Obama Not Born Here!” which claims to bring up new “evidence” that there is no birth certificate for Barack Obama.
Here is the video;
I will ignore the fact that Tim Adams may have broken the law by investigating voter information on a person who was not voting in the state of Hawaii and get to the heart of the matter. Adams’ claim is that since he never saw certain documents, they do not exist. Well, I have never seen Tim Adams, does that mean that he does not exist?
To put it bluntly, its a moronic video that is supported no evidence. Adams is either a liar or an idiot because FactCheck.org actually spent time with the certificate, investigated the story, touched and photographed the document.
If there was one person in the world who would have wanted this story to be true, that person would be John McCain. Not only did McCain’s campaign find nothing, but he has been tearing his Republican Senate opponent JD Hayworth an new one for his birther beliefs.
Bill O’Reilly of Fox News has been the most detailed investigator on the birther subject and he is also the most adamant that there is noting to it.
Followed by a complete smackdown on the issue.
Because the birther story continues to be raided at townhall meetings, even NBC’s Brian Williams had to shut it down.
Now stop playing in the BS and get focused on factual issues that actually matter to our country.
UPDATE: 6/13 7:35 – H/T to @_ccm who tweeted me a post from Oh, for goodness sake that goes into detail about Mr. Adams’ “character”. Noting incriminating, but Adams does appear to be a man with an agenda.
UPDATE: 6/20 3:25 pm – PolitiFact.com:
There is not one shred of evidence to disprove PolitiFact’s conclusion that the candidate’s name is Barack Hussein Obama, or to support allegations that the birth certificate he released isn’t authentic.
