BLITZER’S BLOG: New Details on Obama’s Hawaii Birth

(CNN) – For some of the so-called birthers out there, there’s probably nothing that will convince them that President Obama was actually born in Hawaii.

But for those who might still have even a little bit of an open mind, they should read David Maraniss’ new book on the president, “Barack Obama: The Story.” Maraniss provides new details of Obama’s birth, including a contemporaneous letter referring to the birth of a baby to a Caucasian mother and an African father.

    Take a look at your bias. You say – in reference to those that believe there is cause to question his legitimacy – "for those that still have an open mind...". How sad it is that you don't see that in yourselves as well. We are talking about about a potential war again the country from deep within. As long as you refuse to be open enough to demand proof of Obama's legitimacy, you are exposing the country to potential destruction from within. There are no defenses mechanisms to stop this it seems. So far all of the evidence suggests that he son of an under-aged and unmarried woman. The person that Obama claims to be the father was, at the time, married to someone else and not able to marry the Dunham child. How about YOU have an open mind and we put everything on the table? Just try to get the micro-films and original records and see how far you get. If he was legit, he would have long ago provided access to his records. Any president doesn't need this hassle. He's already dropping like a rock in the polls. Why make it worse?

    We need to gather all these birthers starting with their leader that crazy woman from Russia who is running for office and the bankrupted mess of hair from NY and send them all to live on planet Kolob. No, wait, the bishop wouldn't want them on his planet.
    How about we send them all in trump's personal jet to Kenya!

    Call it whatever you want to call it but the one who was REALLY born in Panama and still ran for president without one single stupid blip from anyone, including the Democrats is the old man from AZ.

    Would it make any difference if we all get to accept, realize that President Obama's grandfather Stanley Dunham was related to VP Dick Cheney, Presidents Bush, Jimmy Carter, James Madison, Harry Truman?????
