Skip to comments.Watch Media Toadies help Gibbs Avoid Question on Obama BC
Posted on 02/09/2011 5:56:03 PM PST by wistful
Yesterday, Lester Kinsolving, WNDs correspondent at the White House Press briefing, asked the following question: What does the President think of the move of 20% of the states to require presidential candidates to prove with documentation their natural born citizenship status in order to be on the president ballot in those states?
Robert Gibbs, Obamas Press Secretary refused to answer the question and successfully brushed it aside. Gibbs has always been an obsequious untrustworthy toady. His behaviour in this case is not unexpected. What is really disgraceful is the behaviour of the White House Press corp. Our mainstream media reporters and journalists as they are laughingly called. Not many people these days see them as any more than partisan traitors to the profession in which they work. Betrayers of the craft of journalism who worked hard to get Obama elected and now do all they can to keep him isolated from scrutiny and criticism.

Please go to above link to see video. (only 38 secs) Please link to this elsewhere if possible. I think I have done a fair job of explaining this whole issue and would like to see it get as much exposure as possible. I'm hoping Jake Tapper sees it.
Like Rush says they are overpaid stenographers.
I say let these reports act this way.. Many states are going to pass these laws to require long form and what little credibility they have left will be gone... The more they deny, the worse it is going to be for them.
Tappers Taco Bell lunch might have just kicked in.
They are all jokes. Jokes as journalists jokes as Americans and jokes as human beings. They have the integrity of rabid hyenas.
Haha- very good. Y’know it even appalls me that this shifty charlatan Gibbs himself gets away with so much. If we had a real press corps, this guy wouldn’t last five minutes.
The whole scenario is just so tainted with partisan corruption it is utterly incredible.
Gibbs has admitted at least twice, during press briefings, that he is the one who supplied the COLB. The last time he did he unequivocally said that he posted it on the internet. If it’s not real (and it’s not) he has committed felony fraud. Considering what the fraud is about he has to be sweating bullets now if he has even the weakest of synaptic communication going on in his brain.

Well you would think so, but of course the Republicans have been far too slow to move on this issue. Anyway, let’s hope the state ballot rules bring the issue to a head.
It is Washington that is the problem you know. The left staged a very effective influence operation there and the whole town is working to shut this issue down. (calling people “birthers” for example) Outside of Washington it gets a lot more traction.
Didn’t I see something a few weeks back saying that Gibbs was leaving ?
Robert Gibbs is leaving the White House after serving as press secretary for two years.
“It’s true,” the Obama adviser confirmed to CBS News.
Gibbs will depart in February, and he plans to become an outside political adviser to President Obama. He will also give private sector speeches, according to the Associated Press.
With luck we’ll see him in orange overalls one day.

I see there is a message in the comments section purporting to be from Bill Keller. (New York Times Editor) Could be a hoax, or any other Bill Keller. From the derisive nature of the comments, sure sounds like the genuine one. :)
Here are 6 African Newspaper articles calling Obama “Kenyan-Born”
Notice the first article was from Sunday, June 27, “2004”

The Ghana Times So far, the odds favour the once underdog in American politics, Obama, the “African-American Senator” from Illinois state. A Congressional Quarterly (CQ) politics monitored on BBC put the “Kenyan born” American ahead of his rivel, John McCain.
BirtherGate is about to blow sky high.
Better get your slickers on.
It is pretty shameless for the LMSM reporters to help out, but Gibbs gives a complete nonsense answer. He asked about the president’s opinion and defers to the various Secretaries of State?? Second, this is a pretty dumb thing to say about these bills anyway since they would be obligated to execute the birth certificate verification provision. Ironically, the courts have protected at least a couple of such state officials. With these bills in place, that won’t fly the next time.
If left to Congress to deal with it Gibbs doesn’t have much to worry about. What I believe he’s sweating is the issue blowing up amongst the masses. If that happens Congress has to follow not lead. The whole thing is teetering on that precipice now and states requiring NBC proof would give it a big shove towards the cliff.
They should have told him sooner before he made direct admissions on two separate occasions (that I know about) on audio/video tape in front of the WH press corpse. LOL
