Abercrombie, who was a friend of Obama's parents and knew him as a child, launched an investigation last month into whether he can release more information about the president's Aug. 4, 1961 birth. The governor said at the time he was bothered by people who questioned Obama's birthplace for political reasons.As if. He knows the score--Obama has spent millions to stop birther lawsuits to presumably keep discovery away from the so-called vault copy. Unless he's an abject burnout or crazy like a fox he had no business wasting time by launching an 'investigation' he knew was going nowhere. It's completely unbecoming of a state governor, and certainly has the stench of stunt all over it, probably to divert from the incoming GOP House. Fail so far, if so.
But Abercrombie's attempt reached a dead end when Louie told him the law restricted his options.
But someone should ask Abercrombie why he thinks anyone running for president should be against producing any reasonable document requested by the citizenry he wishes to govern, since to do so is in effect to honor the constitution itself. That's what McCain did when his birth thing came up. And that's what Abercrombie was supposedly doing on Barack's behalf, to stop the speculation. Seems an easy fix to all of this nonsense, that is, unless it's being done for politics--which if so would be rather unbecoming of a president.
Oh well, here's this week's musical selection. The title seems apropos:
BTW, here's Sugarloaf's big hit, performed live in 2008.
