Second of Two Parts
So what of the cumulative evidence against our maybe-president's citizenship? Let the reader judge the balance and weight of a summary appraisal. (Curious machinations over a crucial piece of evidence, a birth certificate of all things, changed the balance for me.)
1. If B.H. Obama is a natural-born U.S. citizen, those who flack for him should be able to do better than the unpersuasive defense they have offered.
More specifically damning, haven't you noticed how Obama apologists rarely offer a substantive argument for his citizenship at all, but instead use personal attack, invective, sophistry, demagogy and ridicule? The bottom line: If you believe that the artist formerly known as Barry Soetoro really is a natural U.S. citizen, prove it. If the subject of the controversy cannot, others are not likely to be able to either.
(When this writer uses attack, ridicule, etc., it is not gratuitous but grows from the substance, such as the appearance of an insidious political provocation and national existential emergency, as here.)
