Rep. Swafford Provokes Outrage In Democratic Legislators (Obama Certifigate)
The Nashville Post ^ | February 12, 2009

Posted on 02/13/2009 9:00:10 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Jeff Woods reports the reaction of some lawmakers upon hearing that Rep. Eric Swafford had joined a fringe movement that questions President Obama’s citizenship:

“I actually asked Eric for his [birth certificate] this morning. I told him I wanted to see his. He said he had it in his office. I think it’s shenanigans. I don’t see how some of these people get elected. I’m just tickled to death I’m not in a leadership position in the Republican Party. That heart attack I had yesterday would have been for real probably.”

Later, Miller launched into a tirade against the state GOP for what he called racist actions, citing Chip Saltsman’s “Barack the Magic Negro” CD and the “blackbird mailer” sent against Nathan Vaughn in last year’s campaigns.

“What’s wrong with the Republican Party?” asked Miller, who is black. “There’s always something coming out of the Republican Party in the state of Tennessee, something racist, something goofy. What is the mentality of these kind of people who continuously make these kind of goofy statements? It’s embarrassing. We’re the joke of the nation, and they continue to make us the joke of the nation.”

It's just pure racism making a man prove that he's constitutionally eligible for the office that he holds! How dare they! Don't they know that Factcheck.org (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Soros, Inc.) has proven, beyond a "shadow of a doubt", that the COLB is real? Darn those crazy Rethuglicans!!

Someone should send an email to Miller and ask him why there are so many fake addresses associated with Barack’s name and so many variations of his name.

Let the tide swell. I love it. Pretty soon, someone might actually uphold the Constitution.

Make sure you ask him why he didn’t register for the draft!

Really? Mine is in my home office too. Right next to my seat here. It's been there for oh 15 years now I figure. Kinda dusty, but it's there.

Shuckin’ and jivin’ but never, EVER, show the vault birth certificate.

If there’s nothing to hide, then show it so it can be put to rest.

Got my BC right here too. How odd that Der Fuhrer Obama won’t unseal his useless Hawaiian BC...it must say that his actual birthplace was Kenya.

The truth will come to light eventually. One year, 10 years, 20,,but it will come out. He will go down in history as the usurper he is. All his actions will be null and void. Yes, too late to help us now, but history will eventually show him for the faker he is.

Time wounds all heels, and he’s the biggest heel of them all.

The pattern emerges. First ignore us. Then ridicule us. Then call us racists. Then they’ll be forced to admit we’re right. Although I think we should push the Indonesian citizenship harder than the BC, keep the pressure on! They’re nervous if they’re already shouting Racist!!

Yes, when they play the racist card, you know they’re feeling some heat at least.

The really sad thing is that Bambi is most likely enjoying all this. Things are great if your opposition is wasting time on nonsense like this instead of opposing your policies.

Wake up, birthers. You mean well, but you are only hurting the conservative cause with your nonsense. Go do something substantive that actually can do some good. For instance, donate to the National Right to Work Foundation to oppose card check. Donate to the First Amendment Coalition to oppose the Fairness Doctrine.

There are any number of more productive things for you to be doing other than tilting at the birther windmill.

Supposedly you’re an intelligent individual.
Why is it you find it futile to ask for something that exists in the here and now - i.e. a real BC?

I guess you’re happier prognosticating on economics.
How’s that workin’ for ya Skippy?

You obviously have no idea what economics is about. Go take an econ class before you start shooting your mouth off.

I'll offer you a hint: very few economists are in the business of forecasting.
