PA-7 candidate has questions about Obama’s birthplace

From PoliticsPA’s Alex Roarty:

…Although he rejects the label “birther,”[third-party candidate Jim] Schneller has major questions over whether President Obama was born in the United States. He has filed a motion with the State Supreme Court challenging Obama’s right to be president.

“It became obvious from the Internet that our future president and a man I had admired … (wasn’t answering questions about his birth certificate),” he said. “The balloon deflated completely, because he didn’t get on the Internet and provide proof.”

According to a new CNN poll, 11 percent of respondents are confident Obama wasn’t born in the US, and 16 percent say they’re skeptical about his birthplace. Again, 27 percent – more than a quarter of respondents – think the president wasn’t born in the United States. (Today is, in fact, Obama’s birthday.)
