Cliff Kincaid Still Obsessing Over Obama Birth Certificate « The Washington Independent
The Accuracy in Media editor, who got in some trouble for comments he made at the Conservative Political Action Conference about President Obama’s citizenship, digs in a little deeper in a fundraising appeal.
As an investigative journalist myself, I cannot say with confidence that I am satisfied that the “evidence” proves that Obama was born in Hawaii. I was always suspicious, especially after a copy of his alleged birth certificate first surfaced on the website of the far-left Daily Kos. That is the site that falsely claimed that Sarah Palin had faked her last pregnancy.
That’s awfully misleading—a DailyKos diarist posted about this, he/she drew mostly negative comments, and the diary was pulled down.
A group calling itself FactCheck.org claimed to have seen Obama’s real birth certificate, but I don’t know why we should trust them. This FactCheck.org defended Obama’s misleading campaign ads about his upbringing. Those ads claimed that he was raised mostly by his grandparents, when we know that Frank Marshall Davis was his mentor for 10 years of his young life. Davis, who was black, had been picked by his grandfather, who was white, to be a father-figure.
As a trained investigative journalist, Kincaid must know something about the difference between “mentors” and “people who raised you” than we do.
