Is Obama an American?

This is an old smear that is making the rounds again. It seems Philip J. Berg, Esquire, of Pennsylvania filed a lawsuit recently seeking a Declaratory Judgment and Injunction that Barack Obama does not meet the qualifications to become President of the United States. The fact is that Obama is an American citizen by virtue of his birth, as can be seen from his birth certificate reproduced here. What is interesting is that Mr. Berg goes on to claim that Obama "lied and cheated his way into a fraudulent candidacy and cheated legitimately eligible natural born citizens from competing in a fair process." Fascinating.

This is just sad. Obviously, a lot of truth is coming out on the subject of race. I saw yesterday how an individual (republican) created a fictitious story about a black man attacking her saying he's an Obama supporter. Overall, I am shocked to see how poorly the campaign is being run by the republicans - its just attack attack attack. The main election issues have taken a back seat. However, I think Obama has maintained his dignity really nicely in this whole thing.
