Q: You stirred up quite a controversy with your comments regarding birthers and your plans to release more information regarding President Barack Obama's birth certificate. How is that coming?
A: I got a letter from someone the other day who was genuinely concerned about it; it is not all just political agenda. They were talking on Olelo last night about this; it has a political implication for 2012 that we simply cannot have.
(Abercrombie said there is a recording of the birth in the State Archives and he wants to use that.)
It was actually written I am told, this is what our investigation is showing, it actually exists in the archives, written down ...
...What I can do, and all I have ever said, is that I am going to see to it as governor that I can verify to anyone who is honest about it that this is the case.
If there is a political agenda then there is nothing I can do about that, nor can the president.
Hawaii has never confirmed that his COLB is real. They have even gone so far as to refuse to confirm it. Factcheck is run by the annenberg foundation of which obama was on their board of directors. Of course they are going to say it's real. They probably helped to make it.
Now, properly address his own wife practically saying that he was born in Kenya. Saying "so?" doesn't make it go away.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
Notice, no one admits to being a birther, but over 500 posts on this. Wonder why that is...

good job, gub!
We'll know in 20 years, when it's not longer relevant.
It's just weird. I don't remember another president so hesitant to produce his birth or academic records as Obama.
