I'm a sucker for political discussions. I try and stay as educated as possible on current political events. I wasn't a huge fan of either Presidential Candidate. It was another year where I was left voting for what I perceived as the lesser of two evils.
When I ran across this post, How Much Is NewsMax Spending On PPC over at Dan Thies' blog, I was sucked right in.
Dan's post is a good read. While we share some political similarities, it's clear we have some differences as well. Most of our differences revolve around Obama's birth certificate and whether or not he was truly born in Hawaii or Kenya as his grandmother stated.
Obama attempted to clear up this issue by posting a copy of his birth certificate on the internet. This only caused more controversy after a self-claimed document expert at Townhall.com raised some issues about Obama's birth certificate and claimed it was a fake.
Another issue is Obama's grandmother claims she was present at his birth in Kenya.
I'm not 100% convinced either way. I do find the birth certificate situation suspicious at best. Maybe it's just a hopeful suspicion. If so, it really doesn't matter. The U.S. Supreme Court made the decision not to hear the case of Obama's birth certificate earlier this week.
Dan raised some good points in our discussion. One of the most influential was a link to this article.
