Picture of the week

(CNN) - It was a busy day for reporters at the White House Wednesday after President Obama's long-form birth certificate was released.

    Most people realize that politicians lie."GITMO will be closed with in one year", 'I did not have sex with that woman", "I am not a crook." We also know that news companies sometimes do not act in an impartial way. Take the Killian papers and CBS. Dan Rather insisted that the documents were real, a few weeks later they were proven fake, he was discredited and lost his job.

    The president had a unique opportunity to lay this issue to rest and build a bridge between the divide. Instead he chose to act in a strange and suspicious way, creating more doubt. Why did the president have his personal lawyers deliver the electronic copy of the certificate to the White House? Wouldn't it have been better to have the state of Hawaii deliver copies directly to the media so that the chain of authenticity would not be questioned?

    Liberals will now chime in and say that I am racist, liar, and delusional as well as a couple of names that I refuse to type. However questions still remain. But maybe it is time to drop the issue of his birth location. The current environment is just too volatile. The bloggers and media have managed to bully the issue, threatening any non believers of the president with hate and ridicule, preventing any reasonable discussion of the topic. Think of it, CNN declared a certificate authentic before they ever saw it.

    I have posted this many times yet I believe it deserves to be considered again. Look at the original .pdf from CNN or the White House. Zoom in 300% or more. Notice that the text has a white back ground. The green safety paper is obscured. Zoom in and out and notice that the text, official stamp and background are separate. As if knocked out in photo shop. A single image would be continuous.

    I think that this has now escalated way beyond the birther issue. This is now about fraud and deceit on the highest level of our government. The president has foisted on the world a .pdf file that is prima facie fabricated. The .pdf is composed of multiple layers. The text, signature and background green safety paper are all separate layers. This is paramount to three separate sheets of paper. No court would accept such a fragmented document.

    @angela; you're soooo right! But these people are on a trolling mission to destroy, teardown and dismiss the intelligence and reputation of this 'particular' PRESIDENT, polically, professionally, personally, and spiritually if possible; as well as his wife's and family's, by any means necessary! That's the goal of the 'good old boy system'. The only entity that could be working this much hate, destruction, beligerency, and divisiveness is the spirit of SATAN him/herself. Don't worry, GOD'S will be done!

    The people who profess to believe this nonsence are unable to accept the FACT that an African American is the most powerful MAN in the universe. Your HEARTS are dripping with EVIL.
