Barack Obama was never going to have an easy journey as President of the United States; there has been much speculation from an increasingly vocal number of so-called ‘birthers,’ who argue that Obama was not born in the USA and is therefore not eligible to run the country.
Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukimo released a statement, explaining “I have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago.”
State officials in Hawaii are hoping the statement will quieten both this outspoken minority and the media interest in the rumour. So for anyone who still doubts Obama’s nationality, yes he IS American; can we all move on now and deal with some actual issues?
