Pat Boone Is Still A Birther
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Pat Boone is a longtime birther and Obama-hater, so it's no surprise he would keep up the Obama-hate. But he's also decided to ignore the reality of the wholesale abandonment of birtherism -- even by the main outlet that publishes him, WorldNetDaily -- if his March 8 WND column is any indication, in which he adapts "The Emperor's New Clothes" to shoehorn Obama into it:

At his first public appearance, to the shock and anger of the emperor, a young lad named Bob said loudly, where millions heard him, “The emperor is naked! He’s lying to us! Why is he doing this?”

And rather than being shocked into silence, increasing numbers of previous supporters began yelling questions at the startled, suddenly embarrassed ruler.

“Why are you keeping all your early school, passport and travel records sealed permanently, so that we can never know how you came to this position? And whether you are actually, legally entitled to rule over us this way?”

“Your Highness, since no hospital in this country claims you were born there, why do you not produce an actual birth certificate or some verifiable proof of your citizenship, as the Constitution demands? What’s with your Social Security and Selective Service numbers, that first belonged to other people?”

And immediately another voice cried out, “Yeah, you told us on national TV you were putting a copy of your birth certificate on the White House website, making fun of anybody who doubted you. But when we went there to look, we found a photoshopped creation, a fraud, not a copy of anything! Just something you had somebody make up! You think we’re too dumb to notice, or afraid to do anything about it! Why are you doing this to us, to our country?”

Ah, so much fail. First, Obama "early school, passport and travel records" are "sealed permanently" to the same standard as every other U.S. Citizen.

Second, Kapi'olani Medical Center in Honolulu has acknowledged that Obama was born there, as demonstrated by its publication of a letter from Obama stating he was born there.

Third, Obama did release a birth certificate. In fact, he released two.

Fourth, the idea that Obama's birth certificate is a Photoshopped fraud has been discredited by John Woodman, among others.

Boone, it appears, still isn't about to let the facts interfere with his Obama-hate.
