MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. -- Continuing to show Rubio is just too extreme for Florida, the Kendrick Meek campaign released a new slide to its "Too Extreme for Florida" website that highlights Rubio's assertion that he doesn't know if President Obama is a citizen of the United States.
Last year, when Rubio was asked if he thought President Obama's birth certificate was fake when speaking in front of a Tea Party crowd, Rubio replied, "I don't know the answer to that."
Rubio declines to say whether President Obama is a U.S. citizen. In a profile in the Miami Herald, "[Rubio] declines to venture an opinion on President Barack Obama's U.S. citizenship. 'I don't know the answer to that,' Rubio equivocated when asked at the GOP women's club whether the president's birth certificate is valid. Rubio's response signals that he's moved farther to the right since term limits forced him out of the Florida House last year though he said during the trip, 'I won't change who I am to get elected.'" (Miami Herald, "Marco Rubio Warming Up Panhandle Voters",11/2/09 )
Hopefully, the question will be moot for four of those six years.
Oh. I get it. Instead of providing evidence that Soetoro is a citizen, the question gets settled by labeling anyone who asks for evidence as “extreme.”
That’s kind of how they built a “consensus” about global warming, isn’t it?
Why are you posting this now (October 25)?
Pretty much nobody knows since BO has spent over a million bucks to keep it a secret. He may be, but he is hiding something.
Last year, when Rubio was asked if he thought President Obama’s birth certificate was fake when speaking in front of a Tea Party crowd, Rubio replied, “I don’t know the answer to that.”
Because I can and the Libs are look'n high and low for Rubio...
"Liberal Birthers' to Demand Rubio's Birth Certificate?"
"After a strong win by Florida's Marco Rubio in a three-way race for U.S. Senate this week, there's been talk of a bright political future for the Hispanic Republican, with some even touting him as an excellent presidential contender.
But a verbal flub by radio host Rush Limbaugh yesterday may have disheartened many, when he inadvertently suggested Rubio was not a natural-born citizen.
"I was told yesterday that I dashed the hopes of millions of people when I said that Marco Rubio was not born in America, and the reason I dashed the hopes of millions of people was because Marco Rubio, if not born in America, couldn't run for president", Limbaugh said on his program this afternoon. "I wasn't aware that I said Marco Rubio was not born in America. "
Did Rush really flub up?
I've heard this rumor now, for a few years, that he is hiding something, but that it wasn't that he wasn't born here, but that what he was hiding, was that he had committed financial aid fraud, and other types of fraud, by claiming, at one time, that he wasn't born here.....
I remember, first hearing that, when stories came up about his first college, and him getting some kind of special aid package or financial assistance (despite actually having money) for being a foreign student....
Have no idea, if its true, but if he wasn't thinking of becoming POTUS one day , and was thinking purely short term, it might make alot of sense, that he did some screwing around, for some money and support.
Race Bannon talked with him around 1980 in HI and he told Race that he was born in Kenya, spent time in Indonesia as a kid, and wanted to be President.
Courtesy ping to Race Bannon.
And he’s hiding EVERYTHING so he’s hiding a lot more than a bit of financial fraud.
Race Bannon got further then Wayne Root did....
Wayne Root was the libertarian vice pres nominee in 2008 (and will be the prez pick in 2012).
Wayne Root, and his friends have never personally met or seen Obama.
Nothing strange about that..........
Except that according to Columbia University, Wayne Root was in the same classes as Obama.....
He likes joking that not one of his classmates (whom he has kept in touch with), remembers ever seeing Obama in class............lol.
The financial aid story has to do with when he was a kid, and telling people he was foreign, so that he could get into certain schools, and take advantage of preferences and get financial packages..........
Sidenote: Steve Case (of AOL fame), was actually in the same high school at the same time as Obama in Hawaii....They were a couple of years apart however, Case does remember Obama though.
Obama told Race in 1980 that he grew up in Indonesia and was born in Mombasa, Kenya, and someday wanted to be president.
“Barack Obama Sighting, Hawaii 1980”
I think that Race Bannon is a comic book character.
If he can be a comic book character then you can be a friend of a Roman Emperor. ;-0)
Kendrick Meek can’t be sure either. He just doesn’t care.
Easy. The media say's the birth certificate is legit, so it is legit. To back it up, Hawaii's dept. of health gave Obama a paper that says "this isn't his birth certificate, but we say he was born here, and our proof is, well, we say he was born here."
The question of Obama’s eligibility isn’t whether or not he’s a U.S. citizen, but whether or not he is a ‘natural born citizen’ as required by the Constitution. All these attempts to obfuscate the real question are getting tiresome.
The COLB put out by Team Obama, even if it is legitimate, doesn’t answer that question, one way or the other. Gee, it’s a shame we won’t have Kendrick Meeks serving in the Senate.
He’s a Kenyan and should be deported.
“Heehee... Yo Obama, are you a US Citizen?”
Like Marco, I don’t know with certainty that he is. That being said, I think it is a distraction from more pressing concerns. If you hadn’t noticed, China has us by the cajones and they know it. Obama hasn’t prevented a financial meltdown. He has been adding fuel to the fire. When China is ready to say no to our bonds, our economy will collapse like the twin towers. There is a much bigger game going on here. Do not get distracted by the sideshows and theater.
Sadly, the consequence of our past foolishness is unfolding as we speak. Will we get another chance? There is no guarantee. This is a time for sackcloth and ashes. We began as an inspiration. That city of light upon a hill for all the world to see. The idea of a free people governing themselves and creating their own destinies. Americans got lazy and self absorbed. They took their inheritance for granted. They through it away like a used condom. Some have awakened but not nearly enough. I pray for all of you as we enter this dark night of the soul for America. Prepare yourselves.
Nahhhh.... B Wacky is her lackey!
Her electable numbers were/are unquestionably not.
She gets him to do her dirty work. She comes in to clean up/save the day.
She gets her agenda, without the dirty hands.
You may be right rawcatslyentist. I have not paid attention to her polling numbers. But I also wasn't paying attention to writing. What I intended to say was:
The press didn't know enough, or did and wanted to suppress the true issue, which was to ask if Rubio thought Obama was a natural born citizen as required to hold the office of the Presidency.
To back it up, Hawaii's dept. of health gave Obama a paper that says "this isn't his birth certificate, but we say he was born here, and our proof is, well, we say he was born here."But they forgot to mention, the form, forgery or not, includes a notation which indicates it is the form used when the registrant is filing an unverified birth for a child born outside of Hawaii. They do keep getting tangled up in their stories....
To communists Rubio would seem extreme.
Our next candidate should hold a Press Conference and produce his Birth Records and all his school records. The insist that Obama do the same.
Isn’t it absolutely crazy to think suggesting that someone may not be natural born is extreme. You would think that you were suggesting that they were made out of blue cheese.
No, that was a RUSH media TWEEEEEEEAK.
He gave the only answer an honest man in his position could give. I don’t know if Barry is a citizen. All I know is I haven’t seen a stitch of evidence indicating that he is.
It didn’t work the last time that was tried in 2008. McCain produced his records and obtained a Congressional bill affirming his eligibility, including Senator Obama’s vote. Obama then proceeded to stonewall and deny all efforts to disclose his equivalent records.
Actually this is very like what liberals do because they know enough of the 'high' minded moderate big TARP Republicans will carry their deception for them. Some days it takes the Hubble telescope to distinguish the difference between high minded moderate Republican and limo liberals clamoring for a cap-n-trade green economy for the rest of US.
McClame did not push the issue.
America will not return to solvency until America turns back to GOD.
Rubio is an honest man, unlike Obamao or most of the kooks who accept his citizenship without proof. But Obamao’s real place of birth is a minor distraction for the masses and minions. Where was his teleprompter made? Without that, Obamao is flop-sweat.
Rubio is not going to be marginalized by this. If birthers had a clue they would just shut up. Birthers are quickly labeled crazy and worse by all media and all reputable news outlets.
some states will add proof of citzenship to be put on the ballot in 2012. Obama will not run.
Thats kind of how they built a consensus about global warming, isn't it?”...
YES! These are the people who degrade and viciously label anyone who will not fall in line with their madness. And, it is madness not to require proof of matters which might be lies and as such, have the power to bring down a nation.
People just want the truth and, so far, those who can provide the investigations to find that truth are not willing to do so..For political reasons, of course.
Guess what, Democrats? We now run the House. Even by the Democrats' swinish rules, we now have unquestionable standing in the House of Representatives to question the Kenyan Clown's eligibility.
I certainly hope that at least one committee in the Congress will have enough fortitude to do so.
I'm sure that if enough people see this post many will respond with details that I believe are irrelevant. The bottom line is that he won't release his long form birth certificate, and with out that, no one knows where he was born. That statement is simple, to the point, and indisputable.
Well one of his first executive orders was to seal paper work on his school history. That should have been a clue to all the deniers.
If that is the case, then those media outlets are not reputable. If they are slandering people for just asking for general information, they are not news worthy organizations, but propaganda arms.
They took their inheritance for granted. They through it away
Just as the children of Israel in the Old Testament, we have eaten of the “Fattened Calf” much to long, I’m afraid ?
Re: “The COLB put out by Team Obama, even if it is legitimate, doesnt answer that question, one way or the other.”
Janice Okubo, the Communications Officer for the Hawaii Department of Health, acknowledges: “I don’t know that it’s possible for us to even say beyond a doubt what the image on the site represents.”
Without an address, To call him an NBC would be foolish.
My point is that any birth certificate is irrelevant to the constitutional question about what the Framers meant by ‘natural born citizen.’ The COLB and long form are both irrelevant.
All the attention paid to them is only a diversion, as is the red herring about whether Obama is a citizen or not. And, I am damned sick and tired of folks saying the interpretation of ‘natural born’ is too complicated for Americans to understand. It is not. Unfortunately, the diversion away from the actual question has been successful.
But if they were made of blue cheese, would they be eligible or not?
Musn't one be roquefort to qualify for eligibility?
Emerich de Vattel, the well respected 18th century Swiss dairy farmer, writing in his masterpiece, "The Cheese of Nations", makes it clear that only a sheep "of the soil" can produce eligible roquefort. An imported sheep can only produce "blue cheese", also known as "bleu". Both perfectly fine cheeses, but neither eligible.
I completely agree with your POV.
It’s always been about the distractions, as evidenced by the Obots on this forum.
They’ve written a million words of smoke.
It’s really simple — ALL persons ineligible for the presidency have at least one first generation tie to a foreign nation, whereas no natural born citizens ever do.
