To Tyler’s State Rep. Leo Berman, on the Occasion of His Filing a ‘Birther’ Bill in the Texas House

Mr. Berman,

You said:

“This bill is necessary because we have a president whom the American people don’t know whether he was born in Kenya or some other place,” Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, said in reference to President Barack Obama and of House Bill 295. “If you are running for president or vice president, you’ve got to show here in Texas that you were born in the United States and the birth certificate is your proof.”

The state of Hawaii is not a colony of the nation of Kenya.

There’s a stronger case that anyone born in Texas is actually a citizen of a foreign country. I’m not saying it’s a good case, but it’s stronger.
