Skip to comments.Dear Freepers, Oppose Obama on the issues, not his alleged legitimacy (he really is legit)
Posted on 08/05/2009 6:40:35 AM PDT by Edward Watson
In my personal opinion, Obama is a disaster for America. I believe future historians will describe this period as the OBAMA CATASTROPHE - the time when America collectively lost its mind and voted for a man and a group of leftists who quickly destroyed the nation in favor of socialism and income redistribution.
However, if people want to save the American nation and way of life - the best and most benevolent society in human history; opposition must be passionate and RATIONAL. The entire legitimacy or birther issue is indeed passionate but definitely not rational.
It has been frustrating to see my fellow-Freepers waste so much time and effort arguing that Obama isn't a legitimate president. He is and no amount of wishful thinking to the contrary will change that fact.
Salon has a great article addressing all the issues of the matter (see sourced website above).
What has become of us? I know some conservatives tend to lean towards mindless conspiracy theories but this is getting ridiculous.
Free Republic is a forum where conservative issues are discussed, hopefully rationally but always passionately. I remember when we all laughed at the conspiracy theories emanating from the liberals and leftists (i.e., 9-11 was an inside job) and now the same type of lunacy has infected this forum.
Time to stop the birther distraction and focus on the real issue of saving the Republic.
So it is easier to convince the freepers of their errors by
posting on another site?
I’m capable of doing both. It’s called multi-tasking.
Yikes! Hope you’re wearing your asbestos suit today. You, my friend, though you’re doing nothing but speaking the truth, are about to get flamed.
Go away. Obamabot.
MINDLESS conspiracy theory?
He HAS NOT produced the documentation requisite for ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America and he has CONTINUOUSLY fought to make sure they aren’t released. WHY? Why won’t he just silence everyone and release his long form birth certificate?
BTW, regarding the birth issue...if it is so obvious, if he is so liegtimitae, then simply supply the long form birth certificte. I can.
This arguement that we should worry how the libs or the MSM think we look over it is, IMHO, a spineless arguement. It's not racist, irrational, or trivial to expect that a constitutional requirement be met and verified.
If you think it is trivial or irrational, talk to Major Sefan Cook, who refused orders based on this issue to deploy to Afghanistan...and then filed suite against Obama over his legitimacy. Rather than fight this in court, the Obama administration rescinded the Major's orders....why?
Agreed...there are so many other tangible issues to be fighting Obama on. Not to mention the mission of educating and changing people’s minds in preparation for the 2010 and 2012 elections.
If there was anything to this, Hillary would have nailed him before he even ran.
You are playing into his hands, instead of focusing on this evil health bill we are off on this silly distraction
Are you being obtuse? The asshat hasnt been vetted.
You need to show your long form for a passport, for starters. Where's his? Where's his college transcripts, who ghost wrote his autobigraphies, how did he get into Harvard, who paid for his college? Who the eff is this guy?
Why ws this posted in news? This is your opinion...put this where it belongs.
Your betters have decided what you should think! Now think that and ignore those other *bad* thoughts about accountability and transparency and one law for all.
FReepers are capable of multi-tasking.
Here’s a thought, Mr.Koppelman, why don’t you do some investigative journalism and uncover all of 0’s missing records?
I can walk and chew gum at the same time.
LOL, well I’m convinced.
Attorney Phil Berg publicly state Obama/Soetoro was born in Mombasa, Kenya in October of 2008.
He was ignored.
Attorney Orly Taitz published a photograph of baby Obama’s birth registration as being born in Mombasa, Kenya in August of 2009.
She was ridiculed.
Either the US Constitution is important to you or it is not.
I have a feeling that folks are going to seriously be saying exactly that in the near future. Groupthink is growing in our government. Hopefully the Proletariat doesn’t drink the Kool-Aid!
