President Obama had a Loving American Mama.....
President Obama had an American Mama who loved him and raised him. I love this photo, it shows a young mom at Halloween. I loved that she dressed him as a Pirate. ( Of course now the Birthers will be presenting this photo as proof, claiming that he was being trained as a Somali Pirate.... or some other foolishness). I keep wondering if his Mama was here would the Birthers and Baggers keep hammering the bigoted rumors about his heritage ? Would they keep trying to rewrite his history of WHO and What and What Color he is ? Birtherism is Racism and shame on the Media and Journalists for not calling it for what it is.
Ironically if ANY of the Media did their homework and looked up the Laws or questioned some Citizenship Lawyers they would start to realize that the Birthers whole premise is Broken. President Obama was born to an American Mother on the Island of Hawaii. Yet if she had been An American traveling abroad and had had a baby, that baby would still be an American Citizen.
If any of the Media and Talking Heads had bothered to research Birthright Citizenship in Wikipedia they would understand that because of his Mother's Citizenship President Obama was BORN an American, period. Existing American Laws protect Obama and his Heritage and his Birth.
Apparently the Republicans are now embracing Britherism as an "issue" for the 2012 Election. First it was Mr.Huckabee, and then it was Mr.Trump. And now this week we learn that 46% of Republicans are questioning his Birth and Citizenship. And instead of the Journalists exposing this for the Xenophobic Racist notion that it is , the MSM has been continuing to trumpet the antics of Trump and Bachman.
I for one wonder at the Republican Convention of 2012 will they be handing out Tin Foil Hats or White Sheets ?
This is the Link to the must read NYT article "Obama's Young Mother Abroad." ( Sadly the title alone will still feed the Birther's Wet Dreams...) Do read this article it will give much insight into our President, how he was raised and nurtured. Personally I keep wishing Someone would write a book on President Obama's patriotic grandparents. His Kansas grandfather fighting in World War II and his grandmother working in the War Factories of the NW to help the World War II efforts. There is no Real problem with his very American Story.
