There, That Ought to Shut Those Birthers Up!

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie has committed himself to producing more evidence that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii to shut up the “birthers” once and for all.

However, his interview with the Star-Advertiser will probably do more to keep the birther-buzz alive than anything:

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.

Hopefully this definitive statement will put the issue to rest once and for all, but unfortunately there will still be crazy wingnuts demanding to see the original document.
