State officials in Hawaii on Monday said they have once again checked and confirmed that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen, and therefore meets a key constitutional requirement for being president.Then there's this a few paragraphs down:
They hoped to stem a recent surge in the number of inquiries about Obama's birthplace."I ... have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen," Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said in a brief statement.
However, it appears Congress has moved on and has accepted Obama's island birthplace. The U.S. House on Monday unanimously approved a resolution recognizing and celebrating the 50th anniversary of Hawaii becoming the 50th state. A clause was included that reads: "Whereas the , Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961."I suspect, however, that all these "facts" won't deter teh crazie much.
UPDATE: The resolution passed the House by a vote of 378-0.
