Here we continue the analysis of a A Catalog of Evidence – Concerned Americans Have Good Reason to Doubt that Putative President Obama Was Born in Hawaii by attorney Mario Apuzzo. We’re adding up the value of the items in his catalog picking up from Birther math Part 2.
So far our total is zero, summing a compendium of vague statements from people who had no reason to know what Apuzzo would lead us to think they said. Nothing thing he has presented so far would be admissible as evidence in court, since at best it is hearsay, and at worst outright misrepresentation.
Let’s move on to item 11.
(11) Obama has refused to give consent to Kapi’olani Medical Center for it to release minimal documents confirming he was born there as he claims;
As I like to say, the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence. The release of any information would do nothing but increase the buzz of misinformation. The hospital has, however, published in its newsletter a statement from the President that he was born at Kapi’olani.
(12) No witness with any personal information has come forward to confirm he was born in Honolulu;
The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence. Why would someone remember a nobody born almost 50 years ago?
While one may argue about what Richardson meant, the point is that he has no knowledge of where Obama was born and so his testimony, whatever it is, carries no weight.
(14) Obama has refused to release to the public his education, work, and travel documents (including passports he used for international travel);
The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence. The release of any information would do nothing but increase the buzz of misinformation.
(15) Obama’s kindergarten records have allegedly disappeared;
That’s probably true of must all 49-year-old people in the United States. Is this supposed to be a matter of concern?
I think Mario Apuzzo should be paying royalties to WorldNetDaily, who along with Phil Berg wrote most everything here. Talk about “shop floor sweepings!” What a total waste of time. Stay tuned for Part 4.
