Will a single person at the State of the Union have the guts to stand up and say ...
Myself | January 22,2011 | Self

Posted on 01/21/2011 11:54:53 AM PST by DontTreadOnMe2009

"Obama ! Why won't you show us your Original Birth Certificate???"

Would a single man or woman in Congress have the guts to say this to his face? On national TV?

I think such a person would be a hero to the American Republic and famous for the next 100 years.

We have been waiting three years.

It is a requirement of the Constitution.

Every single American has a copy or can easily get one - why is Barack Hussein Obama excepted?

Why is he different?

Does he refuse to show us his because he does not have it?

Each day it seems more and more likely that this is the ONLY explanation.

Will any Congress Person have the bravery, the guts, the patriotism, to ask this question--- and to help resolve this Constitutional crisis ?

Comments everyone ...

I am inclined to believe that the reason he will not produce it is that his refusal is the ultimate insult to us. That seems to be his style.

He marginalizes legitimate concerns, scoffs at real questions, and ignores what he doesn’t like. And, like all liberals, he LOVES to insult his opposition.

We need to demand this of our Congress and also at the state level. Don’t let him on the ballot without the BC.

Of course no one will say that. I doubt any member of congress wants to be the first one in history to ask that.

We've had a number of Republicans stand up and make bold, honest pronouncements in the past few years. Joe Wilson is a good example: "You Lie!"

Every single one of those Republicans has groveled and apologized within 24 hours.
I think ungodly (illegal: scary) pressure was brought to bear.

Wow - that’s a great idea - everyone who ever meets Barry from now on should do the same thing - wave the BC under his nose.

There’s no excuse for our elected officials and members of the judiciary who have heard cases and tanked them for lack of “standing.” Rep Issa - is this on your “to do” list?

why is Barack Hussein Obama excepted?

Because he's "historic".

Besides, any actual questions would have to be addressed to his teleprompter operator, since Barry has no clue where he, what he's doing, or why he's saying the things he says.

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.

The impact would be tremendous, world-wide.

Three months later Obama would resign.

We live in an alternate reality where the media and ALL of TV cover for Obama 24x7. It is just constant brainwashing, lying and spin. Only taxpayers (aka little people) are subject to the laws - they often make them up on the fly.

We also have no standing. Think of serfdom.

Because of this endless manipulation - the avg idiot is more intersted in the Super Bowl - which is pretty much meaningless.

No because most congress critters are not leaders. They are followers. They poll public opinion and ride the wave to election victories. If you wanted your congressman to ask such a question, you would first have to show him some polls stating that >50% of his constituents wanted him to.

Speaker Boehner: “The state of Hawaii says that President Obama was born there. That’s good enough for me.”

Congressman Issa (chairman of the main House Investigative Committee: “Oversight and Government Reform:”

Issa has tried to draw a line separating events that he considers appropriate subjects for investigation and those which he deems inappropriate. He has criticized his predecessors for wasting time looking into matters involving the Clintons that predated their arrival at the White House, such as the Whitewater and cattle-futures episodes. “These are items that occurred before the President was elected,” Issa told me. “I would not have viewed them as particularly significant.” He added that issues involving Obama’s past are also off limits, such as “the birther question.” Implicit in this rule is that his past should also be left undisturbed.

“Darrell’s sensitive about fixating too much on his past,” Bardella said. “Obviously, the stuff that happened . . .” His voice trailed off. “We can talk about it, as well we should. It is part of his past, but it does make him somewhat wary.”

Wouldn’t it be interesting if all the pubbies made it known that they would give no standing ovations - none, zero, zip - at the SOTU unless the long form birth certificate were released in advance? Then actually followed through?

All the applause lines zer0 puts in and all the interspersed seating would be for nothing. Only the democrats would ever stand up.

No GOP standing ever.

Cool.

Don’t misunderstand me... I’m not saying birthers are wrong.

What I’m saying is that it’s a little too vocal for a guy that doesn’t have the document in hand... even if it is forged.

I do think it is a pipe dream that the birth cert will ever gain traction regardless of where he was born. Of more interest to me is this: If it were proven he was not a natural born citizen, what would happen to all the legislation and executive orders?

I am not a “birther”, and I do not believe that there is anything to this. Worse, IO think that the Obama supporters are egging you (birthers) along in order to embarass you in the end. But, that being said, if anyone is to take this seriously and initiate a real investigation, it should be Cong. Darrell Issa, head of the Oversight Committee. He has subpoena power and can demand proof of eligiblility through due process. If Obama claims privledge, he can subpoena Gov. Abercrombie of hawaii, who has stuck his neck out. A state governor cannot claim executive privledge in a federal matter.
