Yes, comparing the New York Times, a new source known and respected around the world for more than a century, to some guy's blog, is totally valid.
I'm just wondering what evidence would be enough to convince you that:
1. Obama isn't the anti-christ
2. He is an American citizen
3. He isn't a communist
4. He isn't a muslim
5. That he isn't anymore socialist than Ronald Reagan or any other president.
I don't doubt that people disagree with matters of policy, and it's important to have a counter-balance on such things. As my father always said, "if two people agree on everything, all the time, one of them is not needed."
The issue is that with sites like the one you reference is not one of policy. It is if he is a citizen, clearly something that would have been investigated before he was ever elected to any position, let alone running for and being elected to the highest office in this country. In addition, the policy decisions that the president has made so far are more in line with the people who voted against him rather than those who did, for example:
1. Keeping the practice of warrantless wiretaps.
2. Keeping Gitmo open.
3. Escalating the war in Afghanistan.
4. Lowering taxes on the weathiest Americans
5. Lowering taxes on business'
6. Increasing the budget for the DOD.
7. Indefinite detention
8. Military tribunals
9. Attacking Libya
10. Allowing health insurance companies to run healthcare reform.
11. Twice as many deportations taken place under this administration than the Bush presidency in the same time frame.
The list is long, but the point is made.
Moreover, income taxes have decreased for almost all Americans under his presidency.

Ah yes, the ever reputable birther website. So, when writing a scholarly paper, do you cite Wikipedia too?Mar 23, 2011

First Black Elected to Head Harvard's Law Review
BOSTON, Feb. 5 (1990)— The Harvard Law Review, generally considered the most prestigious in the country, elected the first black president in its 104-year history today. The job is considered the highest student position at Harvard Law School.
The new president of the Review is Barack Obama, a 28-year-old graduate of Columbia University who spent four years heading a community development program for poor blacks on Chicago's South Side before enrolling in law school. His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii.
