As if the Birther’s needed more “evidence” to feed their paranoia that Barack Obama isn’t eligible to be President, someone with access to his MySpace page is giving them more. The supposedly official MySpace page for Obama has his age listed as 52, not the 48 that has been listed as his age from the beginning further fueling the WorldNutDaily crowd.
A new wrinkle in the dispute over his birth – and whether he is eligible to be president under the U.S. Constitution’s requirement that the president be a “natural born” citizen – appeared today when Obama’s official MySpace page declared his age is 52, thus placing his birth year at 1957 instead of 1961 as has been claimed.
That would mean he would have been born during the archipelago’s time as a territory of the U.S., the islands’ status from about 1900 until statehood in 1959.
The birth year also conflicts with campaign and other White House information that have discussed his 48th birthday this month.
So one question, is this an honest mistake or is someone in the Obama camp just being deviously mean to the tinfoil hat crowd?
