Odd or Revealing?

In an interview with Brian Williams on Sunday, President Obama was asked why he felt so many people were so uncertain about something so fundamental as his faith. His answer to that question was curious.

"I can't spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead"

Huh? What does his birth certificate have to do with his faith?

Wingnut has a theory about Obama's birth certificate that he shared with us days ago, prior to this interview. He believes Obama's birth certificate may indicate his religion as Muslim. Wingnut is a smart guy. This theory could explain the reason Obama has been so reluctant, actually downright adamant, about not releasing his birth certificate. This theory could also explain why he answered the question about his faith by talking about his birth certificate, an interesting slip, if you ask Wingnut.

Patrick Archbold, of Creative Minority Report, wrote an interesting, well thought out post about the Brian Williams interview, here.

Things that make you go hmmmm. Interesting theory, yes!

Interesting . . . I was wondering why Obama has never answered any questions directly concerning his birth certificate.

Does a birth certificate really indicate the religion of the child? I don't think mine does, although I could be wrong.

Good question, Teresa. It depends on when and where you were born. None of our children's do, but my mother-in-law's birth certificate did. Wingnut's doesn't, but we think that was because he was born in a military hospital. Our theory is that Obama's birth certificate does indicate religion, and his bizarre answer to the religion question supports at least the idea.
