WITNESS COMES FORWARD, HISTORY OF INTERNET RUMOUR DOCUMENTED
UPDATE: Oct. 21, 2009 Second Witness Comes forward, gives testimony to The Post & Email
by John Charlton
(October 15, 2009) It was a moment little noticed and soon forgotten; the import of it was not at that time understood; but the evidence that it did in fact occur is compelling. It occurred during the Obama vs. Alan Keyes debate shoot, when the actual video tape was being recorded by ABCs Chicago Affiliate in the Fall of 2004. It was never aired in Chicago, because the affiliate only aired the final cut; the raw footage was, as far as The Post & Email knows, aired only twice by C-Span in April and May of 2005.
The content of the short exchange has become legendary. In a quick jab Keyes asserted definitively that Obama was not a natural born citizen, and Obama, manifestly caught off guard, conceded the fact.

Guys - send everything you can to:
At one point in the second debate, Keyes, accused Obama saying, You are not even a natural born citizen!
To which Obama immediately replied, So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency.
At the end of the airing of the second debate, the C-Span host noted, as he read from a single sheet of paper, placed before him, that the Obama Campaign had contacted them and requested them to point out to their viewers that Obamas response here should not be understood as a denial that he is a natural born citizen, only that Keyes accusation had nothing to do with the qualifications of office of a U.S. Senator.
wow - got to get this video.
Ping to Keyes campaign manager. He has debunked this many times as not happening (another internet rumor).
(I reported abuse on myself on the last one, pinged the wrong person.)
I’m sorry, but until someone comes up with the actual video, this will remain an internet rumor.
If this video exists, I can see and hear it now. By Sunday, all the alphabets will have their DNC talking points at the ready, he “Misspoke misspoke misspoke misspoke misspoke.....Extreme Republican Extremists are trying to distract from the real issues.....blah, blah, blah......”
I think by the fact that Keyes’ own campaign manager says it is myth and Keyes himself had the most interest in producing the video in his cases against Obama, but never brought it up, should shut this rumor down. You can find people on the internet who will say anything about anything.
I don’t know if he’s an ABC (Alien Born Citizen), or an MSNBC (Merely Socialist Natural Born Citizen) but he sure is one CBS (Commie-Bastard Symathizer).
I for one with stand with those who are Falsely Ostracized as Xenophobes.
It’s a myth and even Keyes has said so.
He doesn’t even remember the line.
Surely, by now, someone would have posted the video if one existed.
” I just sent this to Trump. Maybe he can get the video. “ =======================
Great idea! Otherwise, without Trump’s broad strategic resources and interest, this is dead. Given the Keyes campaign manager’s denial of any such remarks.
“During the debate Dr. Keyes has stated :You are not even a Natural born citizen to which Barack Obama replied: Thats OK, I am not running for president, I am only running for Senate.”
Yes and No. He appears to be saying he agrees that he is not a NBC but he can wiggle out of that one fairly easily but simply saying that Keyes statement didn’t mean anything as he is only running for Senate so there is no point in debating his NBC status.
Barry's House of Lies are beginning to crumble and I don't know who will be the bigger fraud, Barry or the MSM.
Surely, by now, someone would have posted the birth certificate if one existed. ;)
But actually I agree with you on the Keyes event. I see no reason to think this really happened. It's just a myth. But what amuses me is the double standard that some in the media have.
In 2008, the rumor was that John McCain was born outside the country and was not eligible to be president. People demanded to see his birth certificate. McCain showed it (born on a military base). Congress passed a resolution saying he was eligible. Done. But if anyone hints that Obama should also verify his eligibility, that person is denounced as a racist.
And if someone says there is a video of Obama admitting he is not an NBC, the media says "Prove it! Show me the video!" But if anyone says hints that there is not birth certificate from Hawaii, the media says "You fool! He doesn't have to prove it! It's obvious he was born in Hawaii!"
If I remember correctly, Alan Keyes said it never happened.
If he didn’t know then, he certainly knew during the SR511 when Leahy and Chertoff discussed of the definition of NBC meaning TWO US CITIZEN PARENTS and he signed his name to it.
