"Book to Reveal Obama's 'True' Identity?" (Drudge)

That is the headline across the Drudge Report with a rare flash talking about this book which has shot to number one on Amazon.

What will the book reveal? We will have to wait a bit, but I can hazard a guess based on the facts.

I do think that Obama was born in Hawaii. The newspaper announcements, the short form that has been released, and the Clinton research team (not to mention everyone who had an interest in proving Obama ineligible to run) and the few reputable journalist organizations that remain would have uncovered something.

With that out of the way, the next question that must be asked is why Obama has refused to release his long form birth certificate. There are two main options. The first is as a trap for his critics that his allies and the media can use to attack his opponents. The second is there is something written on it that Obama does not want people to know. The two top contenders for that hidden information is what religion it says and if he ever legally changed his name.

My inclination is towards the second option; and further to the second piece of information. That is based on Hawaii Neil Abercrombie (D) not able to find the birth certificate in the records, and then abruptly changing his mind and pledge about publishing it (it should be noted that the action would have been against the law, but that is something he at should have known before). The fact that he could not find it does not mean that it does not exist. It means that the paper record was likely filed under the name Obama legally changed to; and likely never legally changed back.

Such a revelation would mean that Obama lied to the American people. Remember that with Clinton it was not the affair that got him impeached, it was the lie about it. That lie was under oath and Obama does not have a similar risk. That is to say that if Obama did lie, it was not under oath and therefor not an impeachable offense. The same would be true if it was revealed that he was listed as Muslim at birth. I believe Obama is a Christian. It does not make much sense to criticize someone for sitting in a church with an anti-American pastor and then decry him as a 'secret Muslim'. People can not control what they are born into either. People do however choose if they are going to lie about it.

Basically, the biggest problem from the book Obama may face is being caught in a lie or two; not having his eligibility questioned.

Here is the flash, but be sure to see a final note after.

"This year's high stakes publishing project quietly went to press this week, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

After years of research and digging by the nation's top private investigators, here it comes:

"WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President."


The street date is a LONG month away, and author Jerome Corsi, the man who torpedoed John Kerry's presidential dreams with SWIFT BOAT, has gone underground and is holding his new findings thisclose.

"It's utterly devastating," reveals a source close to the publisher. "Obama may learn things he didn't even know about himself!"

I had a discussion with a few of my co-workers about what the consequences would be if it turned out Obama was not born in the United States and there was conclusive proof to that effect. While the discussion started out about if certain laws and policies would automatically be undone, it turned into one on if being born in the United States is actually a requirement. The phrase 'natural born' may not end up meaning born in the United States, if such a case could ever effectively be brought. There are some other examples of people running for president without being born in the States that were not disqualified on that basis; perhaps the most well known being Obama's opponent (McCain). Such a discussion is best saved for a subsequent post.
