Skip to comments.Short Bus's Obama Birth Certificate Defense Is Officially ZOTTED
Posted on 03/02/2012 9:17:36 AM PST by Short Bus
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona is bound and determined to make sure we never forget the embarrassment of the birther movement. Most of us would love to put that ugly little racist blip in our history -- a time when conspiracy theorists and fools alike accused President Barack Obama of not being American. But Arpaio, a sheriff in Phoenix, Arizona, just won't give it up.
Can we say beating a dead horse, people? Sometimes it seems like certain politicians just do things to help out Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, and Bill Maher. After all, how else does anyone explain Arpaio's inane and insane assertion that Obama, a man who produced his birth certificate last year, isn't American?
See his ranting [here].
"Forgery or fraud may have been committed," says Arpaio. Ooooh no! Are ghosts and goblins real, too, Sheriff Arpaio? How about the Loch Ness Monster? Do you go visit old Nessie on your days off from enforcing the laws of Arizona?
In all seriousness, this is vile racism plain and simple. In a place like Arizona, it's no surprise -- after all, many politicians there (including Arpaio) hold rather Draconian views on immigration -- and it's disgusting. And it's getting old fast.
For all you doubters for whom book learning was apparently a challenge, here are the facts: President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961. He has produced both a certificate of live birth during the 2008 campaign and the long-form certificate last year. Neither has been disproved.
So why is this still going on? Arpaio seems like a joke, but, according to Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt, Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney doesn't think so. Yesterday LaBolt tweeted:
Romney has called Arpaio for his endorsement, his aides called "weekly" and Arpaio was his honorary Chair in 08.That's embarrassing. The fact is, most people agree Arpaio is a few cards shy of a full deck, but here we are still talking about him. Is this an alternate universe? Why am I guessing this guy is the type of person who stays at parties hours after they have ended asking for more chips and guacamole? Dude, the party is over, the ship has sailed, and you are beating a dead horse.
Sadly, there aren't enough cliched ways to say IT'S OVER to make it any clearer to this guy.
A Fake is a Fake and it’s been proved the BC is a fake.
The question is why?
I tend to believe my wife’s idea that the BC lists him as “White”.
Sasha is a `freelance’ gerbalist.
You can say what you will but prove the Sheriff wrong, don’t just say it’s over.....prove it.
Sasha’s got to explain to us how the demonstration of how the birth certificate presented by the White House created the document, is racist. I can probably demonstrate by her words that she is stupid. Or how appropriate is it for me to say, “I can probably demonstrate by her Jewish words, that she is stupid.”
Who ever wrote this is an idiot and evidently has an agenda of ruining Joes reputation. Stick it a**hat, Sheriff Joe did his research, or had a team do it, and if the evidence makes the brain dead jerk in the WH look like the phony he is, too frickin’ bad.
“a time when conspiracy theorists and fools alike accused President Barack Obama of not being American....”
Was that before or after a Dem PRESIDENTIAL candidate referred to the 9/11 “inside job” as interesting in it’s possibilities? FUBO. Or when the net was full of insane Bush theories about Iraq and Afghanistan? What a bunch of squirrels.
Next thing you know they will be laughing at our doubts about Biden’s MENSA qualifications...
Whether or not Obama is a citizen by birth is only part of the question. The other part is the authenticity of the birth certificate that has been presented. Some people who say they are experts have examined it and have concluded that the document is a fraud. So I just want to know if Sasha Brown-Worsham can prove that it is authentic.
I think this article was written just to get the “right-wing” contrabirthers to turn on Joe.
Hey Shortshrift the insane one is in the White House as is his Communist backers. So you’ve been here what 3 days with 5 posts I see.
Really. Why even post it.
Ignorance is bliss for libtards
OK,OK Sasha. You say he was born in the USA. Explain to me then why he is eligible if only one parent was a US citizen
Was Sidney even a US citizen? If she was it was just barely
Alexander Hamilton himself was not a natural born citizen, and thus ineligible to be President. Is it "racist" to mention it?
Why didn’t Sasha easily refute (any of) the evidence Arpaio presented? Welcome to FR...
“A Fake is a Fake and its been proved the BC is a fake.”
Big Media and all Rats refuse to believe that, and the “right-wing” contrabirthers don’t seem to care.
This author needs to go back to DU and report that he has accomplished his mission to post this crap on FR. Go back where this kind of post is appreciated and stay there.

I am a mother, runner, wife, editor, and writer. My work has appeared in The New York Times, Parents, Parenting, Runner’s World and many other publications over the years. I also make a mean margarita and run races (everything from 5ks to marathons).
I live outside of Boston, MA in a 1,000 square foot condo in a neighborhood nicknamed “Little Brasilia” with my husband, our two children (Sam, 5, and Alan, 3.5), a corpulent cat and a chihuahua with emotional issues. It’s a full life in a small house, but I love it.
margarita, rocks, salt
Sounds like a typical North East liberal. Just like Romney.
No, not true.
The long form fake has been proven more than once that it is a composite and not a scan of any original, 1961 Birth Certificate.
Who in the hell is this lazy, lefty writer?
