Lately the internet is abuzzing with presidential news that touch on adoption. Barack Obama's birth certificate is a fake. He has had that thing fact checked time and time again but yet this rumor seems to abound. John McCain was born in the Panama Canal too. There is a possibility of birth certificate issues as well. Lord knows both of these stories have been clogging up my inbox with google alerts about both of these fellows birth certificates.
Today there is buzz about John McCain's adoption of his daughter, Bridget. According to news stories from back in 2000, it was insinuated that she was his illegitimate daughter. This was put out by the *snark* delightful Karl Rove with the Bush Campaign. As an adoptee, that is pretty damn cruel of President Bush and his cronies. Then again President Bush considers adoptees properties as he has consistently denied adoptee access when he was governor of my home state of Texas. He, his mother, and his wife were even on the Gladney Board of Directors. Its obvious Bush doesn't have a high opinion of adoptees.
The buzz however is concentrating on the way the adoption has been presented to the press. Was it Mother Teresa that begged Cindy McCain to take these girls or was it the nuns of Mother Teresa's orphanage? To me, I don't really care. However the way the adoption is described is another issue. It seem like a very rushed adoption with John McCain barely knowing what his wife, Cindy, was doing.
At this point, I want to direct you to a dear friend of mine, Niels, of Pound Pup Legacy that further explains the adoption and its legal or illegal implications. There are way too many questions surrounding this adoption.
Personally I will probably not vote for John McCain because he literally blew off a friend of mine, Ibbaanika Bond. The way he answered her questions left too much doubt in my mind about his intentions on cleaning up adoption. It may be a state issue but there are many federal issues going along with adoption as it is now practiced.
