The entire matter was
settled 3 years ago, when the state of Hawaii certified his birth certificate. That's been good enough for every other presidential candidate, democrat and republican alike. Even Mike Dukakis, the "son of Greek immigrants", was not questioned after his citizenship was certified, but like all the others, he was a white european, too. Why is Obama's situation different? Hmmm, let me see......
As for me, I am not familiar with the situation Michael Dukakis faced. In 1988 I didn't pay that close attention to the election. I didn't care for Bush, I didn't care for Dukakis. I voted for what I thought was the lesser of two evils. That is a common approach used by many even today.
