Answer: he wasn't known as "The senator from Kenya." Birthers made that up.What I'd like to know is 2 part:
1 Why, if he was born in the US was he known as "The Senator From Kenya" in 2004
2 With all these lawsuits challenging his birth.. Why has he not just plunked the real certificate down on the counter in front of a Judge instead of costing himself (and us taxpayers)literally millions of dollars fighting said suits? Seems to me that 35 or 50 bucks for a certified copy of the original would be a lot cheaper all the way around..... To date there is not one judge who has seen it.. It's been fought every time.. why?
Re lawsuits: The cheapest easiest way to throw out a lawsuit is to show that the plaintiffs lack standing. And they do lack standing.
And, now, since I have answered your questions, why not try to answer mine?
For Obama to have been born in a foreign country:
(1) Obamas relatives would have had to have been rich enough (and they werent. In 1961 Obamas grandfather was a furniture salesman, and his grandmother was a low-level employee in a bank, and his father went from Kenya to Hawaii on a free flight) and dumb enough to send their daughter at high risk of stillbirth to a foreign country to give birth-despite there being fine hospitals in Hawaii;
(2) Obamas mother would have had to have traveled overseas ALONE (since WND has proven with a FOI Act request that Obama senior stayed in Hawaii throughout 1961) and somehow got Obama back to the USA without getting him entered on her US passport or getting a visa for him (which would have had to have been applied for in a US consulate in that country and the records would still exist);
(3) got the officials in Hawaii to record his birth in Hawaii despite (as birthers claim) his being born in another country and somehow got the teacher who wrote home to her father, named Stanley, about the birth in Hawaii of a child to a woman named Stanley to lie (and since the womans fathers name really was Stanley, she would have had to have found one of the very few women with fathers of that name to do it).
If you sincerely believe that Obama could have been born in a foreign country, then you could answer all three points. For Obama to have been born in a foreign country, all three would have had to have happened.
So, the question is, what are the chances that all three happened?
