Believe it or not they’re still questions being raised about Barack Obama’s birth certificate. The Obama campaign debunked rumors in June, but persistent rumors are still circulating around the Internet that the Democratic candidate for president was not born in this country.

According to the Chicago Tribune, conservative critics have suggested that Obama may have been born outside the United States and is not a “natural born citizen” eligible for the presidency. These critics produced no evidence to support their assertions.

It’s amazing to me that this close to the election this type of rumor and innuendo is still circulating.  The persistence of these rumors only gives further credence to the fact that the McCain campaign simply has no real issues. They rely again and again on tilt by association, as well as ridiculous assertions about Citizen Obama’s lineage.
