    It seems as if the whole thing about where Barack Obama was born refuses to die.

    I have an opinion on this matter.

    I feel quite certain that Obama was born in Hawaii, just as he claims. I also think that the people who refuse to admit that Obama is a natural-born American are not actually interested in that question, per se. I believe that the whole ďbirtherĒ question is really just a racist campaign in disguise. Itís point is not to argue legitimately whether he was born in Hawaii or Kenya, but to remind voters that he is black.

    Of course, he isnít black. Heís half-black. What does that mean? Nothing, in my book. Not that it matters to birthers.

    To me, Obama is 100 percent American, and he is my president, and thatís the end of the matter.
