"If America was living in a situation where they feared ethnicity and did not see itself as a multiparty state or nation, how could a young man born here in Kenya, who is not even a native American, become the President of America?" Kenyan Parliament - NATIONAL ASSEMBLY OFFICIAL REPORT - Thursday, 25th March, 2010 - The Minister for Lands (Mr. Orengo)
That was posted on the Parliament of Kenya website:
the "official web site of the Kenyan Parliament. It is a resource centre for information concerning the Kenyan legislative process as well as links to other related sites. If you have any enquiries, comments, suggestions or other feedback, please use our Feedback section".It looks as if the Kenyan Parliament fully accepts Barack Obama as their native son. The Kenyan Parliament had previously referred to Obama as a “son of the soil” of Kenya on November 5, 2008, in a meeting convened the day after the 2008 U.S. presidential election.
So was he really was born in Hawaii or not?
Maybe someone ought to show these Kenyans Obama's "Hawaiian Certificate of Live Birth".
How come no Hawaiian hospital has claimed itself to be Obama's birthplace?
Interesting article here.
Also interesting is that Arizona just passed legislation in their House requiring proof of natural born status and birth certificate for anyone running for president in order to appear on their ballots. Other states are following suit. And for the record, a certification of live birth, which is a document that certifies that someone was born, is NOT the same as a long form birth certificate which shows signature of hospital officials and doctors along with parent's signatures and other information.
There are legal suits still wending their way through the courts on this issue. Obama is still fighting the issue and refusing to disclose the documents that are being requested.
Interesting to note is the criticality of Obama's judicial appointments to the Supreme Court - because this issue may just very well end up there.
The question looms - if Obama is Hawaiian born as he claims, then why are high ranking Kenyan government officials proclaiming something else? They must just be a bunch of lunatic "Birthers", or perhaps they didn't get the memo from the Obama administration.
