If you didn’t see the video on YouTube of Champaign Mayor Jerry Schweighart saying that President Obama is not American, let me tell you this- it’s pretty scary. I quote him: ”I don’t think he’s American, personally.”
It’s scary that the mayor of a city at the forefront of technological and intellectual development is subscribing to an unsubstantiated and xenophobic rumor. Obama was born in Hawaii. He possesses a legal birth certificate. And finally, the announcement of his birth was published in a local newspaper.
