As President Barack Obama continued hurting this country as a failing president, compounding the progressive economic catastrophes of George W. Bush, The Gazettes editorial board became fed up with the birther movement of conspiracy theorists who believed Obama was a foreigner. These people are to the right what 9-11 conspiracy nuts are to the left.
On Feb. 17, this column stated: The president enjoys an ongoing distraction thats more valuable than anything he or his advisers could have contrived.
"While the president pretends to cut spending telling a whopper about proposing a balanced budget a chunk of his most-impassioned opponents are trying to find out where he was born. The birther conspiracy theorists believe that Obama is a foreigner, who cannot reveal a valid American birth certificate. Theyre not satisfied with his certificate of natural birth from Hawaii, demanding to see a long-form birth certificate.
Its a good bet Obama has what they want, at his fingertips, and will reveal it if and when he needs to. In the meantime, he would be insane to diffuse the black helicopter crowd. Its the perfect political chaff, drawing the enemys rage to the wrong target while Obama has his way with policy. Talk show hosts who could legitimately challenge Obamas policies including Colorados own Peter Boyles waste hours, days, weeks and months expressing exasperation at Obamas refusal to further document his birth. For Obama, its the gift that keeps giving. Money could not buy this political advantage.
Today, the editorial boards prophesy came true. Obama released his long-form birth certificate and explained that it has kept the eyes of his opponents off the ball, providing sideshows and carnival barkers to distract from important fiscal policy matters.
White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said this: At a time of great consequence for this country when we should be debating how we win the future, reduce our deficit, deal with high gas prices and bring stability to the Middle East, Washington, DC, was once again distracted by a fake issue.
In other words, the hand is quicker than the eye and the joke was on you crazies.
Boyles, a high priest in the birther movement, has an enviable place in the mainstream media as host of the prime three hours on Denvers top radio talk station, KHOW. Day after day for the past two years, when he wasnt demonizing the infants of illegal immigrants, Boyles questioned the presidents citizenship and demanded to see the long-form birth certificate.
Upon its release, one would have expected Boyles to announce his retirement, or to hang his head low and apologize. But thats not what happened this morning.
(Vote in poll to the right in red type. Must vote to see results. Thanks!)
Instead, he promised listeners: This isnt over. He desperately reminded his audience that John Mark Carr was presented to the public as the killer of JonBenet Ramsey, and wound up as merely a wannabe, pretend killer. The implication is that Obamas long-form certificate is not real. He questioned why Obamas race appears as African, explaining that African isnt a race. Lets see Was that the work of a minimum wage clerk on the day of Obamas birth? Or is it a clumsy mistake by one of the growing army of high-level conspirators who invested in putting a foreigner in the White House? Conspiracy theorists will believe the latter, and you heard it here first.
Boyles, who typifies all of the birther conspiracy types, demanded to know why he hasnt seen Obamas marriage license, various school records and all sorts of other personal documentation that has nothing to do with the presidents leadership of the country.
Why now? Boyles asked, regarding the timing of the release of the long-form certificate.
Well, heres a theory thats only slightly conspiratorial. Obama did so today because Donald Trump joined the birther circus this month and expressed his interest in running for president. Trump sent investigators to Hawaii in an effort to find the truth about Obamas birth. Trump predictably took credit for the presidents release of the certificate, which is the likely reason Obama chose today for the release. It was the apex of the circus. Obama probably wants Trump in the mix, as the ideal carnival barker to distract Republicans from finding a viable candidate. And who could blame him? Shrewd politicians should make the best of the birth certificates life deals them.
The birther conspiracy will not end with the release of the long-form certificate. Boyles and other conspiracy buffs will instantly expand the conspiracy to include bureaucracies and people at the highest levels of government. The sideshow may help keep Obama as ringmaster for another four years.
Actually, no. The 9-11 conspiracy nuts never had any real evidence on which to base their nutty beliefs. The eligibility skeptics had plenty of reason to suspect something was wrong when Obama delayed for THREE YEARS before finally dragging out a long-form birth certificate.
There’s no reason for birthers to apologize for wanting to see the long form birth certificate. However, now that that’s released, it’s time for them to concentrate on the larger issue: we have a Marxist for a president!

The town is conservative the newspaper is not.
Just goes to prove the “American” people don’t believe anything coming out of Barry’s mouth.
He is a scam artist in the nth degree.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
Clown beats Joker.
Yup, he has a big credibility problem.
BUT, regarding 9-11 conspiracies, Rosie O’Donnell said something about how fire doesn’t melt steel, and something didn’t add up with the collapse of the twin towers.
Given Rosie’s strong knowledge and background in physics and engineering, I had no reason to doubt what she said. (sarcasm)
Two years is more than enough time for the C I A to gin up a fake B C.
... joker trumps clown.
Yes, it’s the real deal. I always drink the kool-aid.
No, it is probably forged, and we’re going to prove it.

Its unfortunate, but given his track record and attitude of “I know best what is good for you” I tend to suspect anything that he does or says as not being completely truthful.
Good to “see” you are feeling better!
