Posted on 03/17/2011 6:46:17 AM PDT by maggief
Potential presidential candidate Donald Trump says he has "just a little" doubt that President Obama is U.S.-born but his feeling doesn't make him an "idiot."
The mogul and TV reality star suggested in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" that aired Thursday that he's reluctant to discuss the topic because "everybody that even gives any hint of being a 'birther,' a word you didn't use, even a little bit of a hint like, 'gee, maybe you know, just maybe there is this much of a chance,' they label them as an idiot."

If I got the nomination, if I decide to run, you may go back and interview people from my kindergarten. They’ll remember me. Nobody comes forward. Nobody knows who he is until later in his life. It’s very strange, the Celebrity Apprentice host added. The whole thing is very strange.
“Just a little”
Well that’s less than his donations to Rahm, Blago, Reid, and every RINO out there.
Perfect answer by Trump.
As I posted in another thread, Trump has the money and the resources to check into Barry’s background in a way that no other candidate can or will.
Looks like he may have already done so.
Donald, the real issue relates to the citizenship status of both of his parents. Where he was born isn’t nearly as important.
What worries me is where and how he was raised.
It amounts to the same thing, and it's the reason the founders put the citizenship requirement in in the first place.
Nobody should be president who wasn't raised in America.
Barry hasn't got the heritage, the education, the mindset or the instincts of an American citizen. And he shows it every day.
Make the quivering, timid GOP also rans stand up.
Trump is one way or the other, turning out to be a game changer.
DON’T BACK DOWN TRUMP.
Wow. That’s about the single silliest thing I’ve ever posted here. Because: backing down is the very last thing Trump would ever do.
Think about that...
imagine a billionaire worrying about whether idiots will ridicule him
Donald baby, wake up and smell the coffee and stand up for what you believe or get out of the way
It would be nice if just one of these candidate wanna-be’s would educate him or herself on the NBC issue. Most evidence supports the fact he is not constitutionally qualified to be POTUS because his is not an NBC. The location of his birth may be somewhat murky and is certainly confused, but there is enough solid proof that he is NOT eligible under NBC.
Who seriously gives a rip about anything that Trump says?
He’s about as relevant as Joy Behar is.
I dispute this "reasoning" on the grounds that most people probably do not remember with whom they went to kindergarten. I sure as heck don't.
If Donald Trump wants to beat down the "0bama isn't a citizen" door, then he should provide some solid evidence that irrefutably proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that 0bama isn't a citizen. Anything less will destroy his own credibility and ensure that we are stuck with 0bama until 2017.
When you hide your "Certificate of Live Birth" and only show a forged "Certification of Live Birth" it causes normal people to say, "huh?"
But to presstitute whores it is not an issue.
The fact remains - NOT ONE PERSON CAN NAME THE DOCTOR WHO DELIVERED BARRY!
- Wasn't born here to begin with?
- Biological father is really [ ]?
- Would raise "natural born citizen" challenges?
- Wants to keep pigeon-holing the "birthers" as nutjobs?
- Any/all of the above.
Right. As a group, they could do it, and unite against him. It would be powerful.
And Trump, while I’m glad he’s in the race as he speaks loads of common sense — needs to stop worrying what anyone thinks — seems that would be #1 requirement to survive the campaign as well as the daily rigors of the presidency.
Does anyone know the hospital at least?
“I dispute this “reasoning” on the grounds that most people probably do not remember with whom they went to kindergarten. I sure as heck don’t.”
I “sure as heck” do! Went to school with those same kids throughout Grade School, Jr. High, and Senior High!
It will be interesting if the media leftists will now start lampooning Trump as a tea party hack, birther, goofball conspiracy theorists. After all, he is someone they like and respect. Trump opening this up, could take this question mainstream if nothing else...
The fact remains: NOT ONE PERSON CAN NAME THE HOSPITAL BARRY WAS BORN IN.
He simply refuses to release the record that verifies that information.
In order to be a “natural born citizen”, both parents have to be US citizens. The “birthrite citizenship” given to Mexicans and other invaders is the result of an erroneous interpretation.
There is hard evidence, and there is circumstantial evidence.
It’s important to know the difference between the two, and the value of each.
Trump listed some circumstantial evidence.
He has just invited Chris Matthews to lead the charge against him.
No, he actually has the ability and resources to be POTUS, and he will actually stand up to those rabid democraps. Could you see him cowering as Boehner and the other RINOS are doing? I think not.
Again, he has a ton of character flaws and I really don’t like the guy, but he definitely knows economics and would whip the dems around for sure. I think he is our only chance against 0.
He has a “little doubt”? Is that like a “little pregnant”? Say it, Trump, and don’t hedge.
The message is, "You aren't white, therefore you can't be an American".
The probability that there is something on his long form BC that contradicts his personal narrative is far greater than the probability that he was born in Kenya. The probability that he is treating the BC issue as a first line of defense against investigating his citizenship status due to time spent in Indonesia is greater IMO that a BC irregularity.
What Trump should have said was "Because the president acts like a man trying to hide something, my suspicions are aroused that he may in fact be hiding something".
No doctor was present.
No one knows the hosptital. The hospital claimed was not built at the time of the birth.
The Clinton’s had one of the best private investigator corps in politics. Plus the FBI files. If Baraq isn’t legit, why didn’t they drop the hammer on him in the 2008 primaries?
Maybe he just listened to the public statement of HI Governor Neil Abercrobie who, when asked how his search for Obama’s birth certificate was going, told an interviewer that an investigation had shown there was a “recording of Obama’s birth” “actually written down” in the State Archives.
The only documents from 1961 that are authorized to be stored at the State Archives are registrations of foreign birth.
All my kids are still in school with the kids they went to kindergarten with.............and even though I moved away from my kindergarten I can remember a lot about it.
This issue for Donald or any other media personality is EASY!
The media framed the issue with the term "BIRTHER."
FIRE BACK, WITH - "Who are the crazy ones, the people who have not seen the birth record that lists doctor/hospital of birth and doubt OR The people who have not seen the birth record that lists doctor/hospital of birth and report as FACT his place of birth?"
“I think he is our only chance against 0.”
I could not disagree more. He would be another H. Ross Perot and we all know how well that worked out.
Gotta love this stuff with WE have to prove he’s not a citizen.... Well that is fine as long as WE have access to his records.
Obama will not release a real birth certificate, his college transcript, even his voting record in the state senate.
So somehow the onus is on us to prove, withotu access to records that he’s lying.
I say the very fact that he refuses to release those records shows who the liar is.
I lean more towards him using the questions with his birth along with the fact that he was adopted by a foreign national to get special treatment in college.
I think all this is tied together.
But of course i can’t prove that because the liar in cheif controls all his records.
Release the stuff, if you are telling the truth i promise to come on here and freely admit i am wrong.
Until then, if you won’t play fair, i see no need to play fair either.
Self interest or they don’t want to end up dead.
The part I find curious is where did Baraq secure the huge sums of money it took to “disappear” all his records before he had any significant wealth himself?
Many murderers have been convicted on circumstantial evidence......
“Barry hasn’t got the heritage, the education, the mindset or the instincts of an American citizen. And he shows it every day. “
Now THAT would make a great tagline...or a bumper sticker!
Saudis, he is their plant.
Well, I didn't go to kindergarten, so I have to reason based upon my first grade experience. I was not yet five years old when I started. (Now I'm 60+.) I remember quite a few names now of the others, none of whom became lifelong friends. But that isn't really the question. Rather, it is whether upon hearing a name in the news I would recognize it as someone who was in my first grade class. I think I would have a pretty good batting average with this.
It’s just so difficult for me to see St. Hillary of the Giant Ambition forgoing some piece of info that might have put her in the WH.
I am not talking about how we the people have to prove that 0bama is not a citizen.
I am saying that if Donald Trump wants to use the "0bama is not a citizen" campaign plank, it is up to him to show irrefutable proof that 0bama is not a citizen. Anything less will destroy his credibility as a candidate. As another poster pointed out, Trump does have the finances to fund such an effort, and could most likely pull it off if he chose to.
The issue w/Perot was that he was a third party candidate. Trump would run as a Republican, and the contrast between his platform and 0’s would be stunning.
I *mostly* agree with you, but there is a slight chance that Trump could beat up on 0bama so effectively that he drives zer0's negatives way up making it easier for a good conservative POTUS to be elected.
Of course it also makes it more likely that if that were the case then TRUMP would be the likely VP choice (I don't think Trump will be the top choice in any event.)
So, it is a sketchy but possible scenario.
Because Soros had chosen Obama - probably because he could get the black vote and Muslim money - and without Soros Hillary could get nowhere.
There are other things to consider as well. Phil Berg was a Hillary supporter who presented in court the claim that there was a Kenyan birth certificate. In that case and in another case where a Kenyan birth certificate was actually submitted as evidence, the court refused to do anything with the claim.
And even if Hillary herself came out with a lawsuit and documents (being the ultimate “birther” to be ridiculed by the media who was documentably threatened by Soros’ thugs both before and after the election), the legal verification of the document’s genuineness would hit a snag because any country that had birth records for Obama would not come out with verification of that fact; keeping it a question would give them bribery power over Obama once he was elected. What power would they have over Hillary if she was elected?
After what we’ve been through I think a person would have to be absolutely crazy to trust the current system to ever come up with accurate or trustworthy results on verifying eligibility. We have a tendency to think that politics is war, but that’s only the case in republican primaries, because nobody owns the republican party. On the part of the dems, Soros owns the party so there is no real dissension among the ranks. Who Soros ordains gets the good media treatment; who Soros doesn’t ordain may as well go camp out at Ft Marcy Park.
And the same thing holds true once people are elected to Congress. The R’s and D’s alike cover each other’s rear ends. None of them wants real accountability because it would screw up their “sausage making process”. The whole system is corrupt. The only disinfectant is the scrutiny of the public. Not the media, not Congressional committees, not even law enforcement. The public - the people who (aside from the unions) aren’t so easily bought and sold in bulk.
