Weds. video: Matthews on Obama birth certificate

As regular readers of Spin Control know, we occasionally wander into the question of Barack Obama’s birth certificate, thanks to the appearance of Orly Taitz at the University of Idaho speech by Chief Justice John Roberts.

Taitz is a leader of the movement which questions whether Obama was born in the United States and is qualified to be president under the Constitution. The movement persists despite statements by government officials in Hawaii who say they have Obama’s birth certificate on file. One of the latest wrinkles is the search for the doctor who delivered Obama…they can’t seem to locate the doc, and it’s only been 47 years. Imagine that.

Another wrinkle is a bill introduced by some Republican congressman that would require any candidate for president to present proof of native birth. Chris Matthews confronts one of the sponsor of the bill, Rep. John Campbell of California, about his beliefs on Obama’s birth qualifications.

To read more about the whole Orly Taitz birth certificate controversy, see links to previous posts inside the blog.
