Ortega denounced the U.S.-backed attempt to overthrow Fidel Castro's new Communist government in Cuba in 1961, a history of US racism and what he called suffocating U.S. economic policies in the region. In his 17-minute address to the summit, Obama departed from his prepared remarks to mildly rebuke Ortega. "To move forward, we cannot let ourselves be prisoners of past disagreements. I'm grateful that President Ortega did not blame me for things that happened when I was three months old. Too often, an opportunity to build a fresh partnership of the Americas has been undermined by stale debates. We've all heard these arguments before." Actually, the president misspoke on the sequence of events in Cuba. The invasion of CIA-trained rebels at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba occurred in April 1961. Obama was born August 4, 1961.

Pardon moi Messy Obama! May we see your birth certificate?
I wonder when/if Obama ever intends to stop apologizing for America. It’s getting embarrassing. Is bootlicking and lickspittling now an official part of the presidential job description? I wonder when he will finally get around to kissing the Queen’s arse for America’s major indiscretion of 1776?
Oh good! Now we can use that argument against reparations for slavery and every other "legacy" ill that the left wants to put on US.
So, the next time Al Sharpton or some other SOB decides that what happened two hundred years ago is still our fault we can point to Odumbnuts' statement.
"I'm grateful that President Ortega did not blame me for things that happened when I was three months old.''
Our selfish discrace of a President has no comprehension of the concept that he now represents all of us at these meetings, not just himself. He's more than happy to let the rest of 'us' be ridiculed by his communist buddies Castro, Ortega, and Chavez, so long has they don't criticize HIM.
I don’t like the President’s politics either, but it reads to me like he made an independent statement saying he was grateful leaders didn’t blame HIM for things from when HE was 3 months old.
I do NOT think he directly was making some point to when in 61 things happened.
This is what happens when you don’t stick to your Teleprompter!

Your point is well made. And I think it is no mystery at all why Obama doesn’t feel that he “represents” you — because he actually probably doesn’t. Not according to your Constitution’s rules, anyrate.
This business about his Birth Certificate is well beyond a joke. It is inconceivable that the world’s most powerful Nation has a sitting President who refuses to prove that he is properly Constitutionally eligible to hold office.
It would never happen here in New Zealand: we wouldn’t allow our Prime Minister to do that. No way. We’d be very polite about the way we asked, but there would be no question of the Prime Minister saying “no” and making it stick. We’d merely ask again, this time a little less gently.
It couldn’t happen in Canada, either: the last time a Prime Minister got uppity with the Canadians his government fell for a resounding defeat in the next election, from the largest majority in Canadian history to merely two seats. Not even enough to receive government funding.
It couldn’t happen in France, either: they would riot for sure. They would build barricades and hold a general strike. The French know how to express their displeasure properly.
Asking to see a Birth Certificate — a real one, not a forged one — is a reasonable request. I had to produce my kids’ birth certificates to open bank accounts for them: it is a normal thing to be asked, and there is no reason on God’s green earth for non-compliance. It isn’t a State Secret, it isn’t even a Secret of the Freemasons for which bloodcurdling oaths are taken. It’s just a “can I please see some ID?” sort of question.
You Yanks really must get your act together. Refuse any more refusals, and don’t take “No” for an answer. Don’t be put off by being called “Birthers” — as if that’s any conclusive argument one way or another. Have a tax revolt, or a general strike, or something — assuming you can’t get your Courts to behave themselves properly.
You really do need to see a Birth Certificate. And any other relevant documentation. The joke is now no longer funny, and the need is rather pressing and urgent.
He is making people laugh at America. Foreign people. Bad ones.
The invasion of CIA-trained rebels at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba occurred in April 1961. Obama was born August 4, 1961,obama is still good with that number thingy.
“This is what happens when you dont stick to your Teleprompter”!
...there’s more truth to that than you may think. That a$$clown is so scripted he can’t tell Michelle “Goodnight” w/o a teleprompter.
Oh Oh, 0bama no longer apolgizes and blames Bush. He almost sticks up the the United States of America. Gotta go, I think a pig just flew by my window!
This is hugh. OBAMA HAS JUST ADMITTED THAT A FETUS IS A PERSON. If he was born in August, he was conceived in December. Okay, so he’s off by a month. He was four months old when the Bay of Pigs took place. He WAS FOUR MONTHS OLD IN HIS MOTHER’S WOMB.
Obama’s on our side! He admitted that babies in the womb are alive, growing, can be described as 3 months old, 6 months old etc.
Throw this in his face, folks.
“So, did he ‘misspeak’ or was he really born in February”
He was born on the day he chooses for his story, he is what his audience wishes him to be, he is a chameleon.
“Obama was born August 4, 1961.”
It is interesting that there is an exiled man who was involved in the Bay of Pigs that says Obama’s father is a Cuban and former CIA people know it. HIs mother went to Cuba and was pregnant when she left.
His email address and phone number are readily available on the net. I haven’t seen that he has denied or confirmed that he wrote the email. A enterprising journalist or the Dentist-lawyer should contact him.
You, my FRiend, are absolutely right! But it's as if someone waved a magic evil wand and 99.9% of America's eyes are blind to the facts and they can't see the Birth Certificate issue. Frustrating to say the least!
I don’t think he’s very good at math. It occured roughly three months before he was born, presumably in one of our 57 states.
Ya know, this could be put to rest quickly. Show us the BC!
Interesting. People usually know their own birth date. Or if they don’t, they create one and stick to it. This isn’t the kind of mistake someone would make. Either he’s allowed the truth to slip out in a moment of candor or he doesn’t know Cuban/American history.
