Skip to comments.Why the stories about Obama's birth certificate will never die
Posted on 12/05/2008 5:18:15 PM PST by Aliska
Dec. 5, 2008 | Barack Obama can't be president: He wasn't really born in Hawaii, and the certification of live birth his campaign released is a forgery. He was born in Kenya. Or maybe Indonesia. Or, wait, maybe he was born in Hawaii -- but that doesn't matter, since he was also a British citizen at birth because of his father, and you can't be a "natural-born citizen" in that case. (But then, maybe his "father" wasn't really his father; maybe his real dad was an obscure communist poet. Or Malcolm X.)

I'm just the messenger here, so you don't have to post all your responses to me, but talk to each other.
"Stop it - I'm getting veclempt!"
Obama has the power to make all of this go away right now, but he won’t show his birth certificate. He is causing this problem, not the evil right-wingers.
What's his birth certificate say? Oh, yeah, that's right - he refuses to release it.
Thank you, Aliska. Brown Deer, we’ve missed you, and your great posts.
This is simple obfuscation. I, for one, am not accusing BO of anything other than refusing to present proof of birth. Which, despite the protests of this writer, he has not. Also, proof is not taking someone else's word for it. A Hawaii official can say anything he pleases. Doesn't make it so. A BC makes it so, which again, we have not seen.
He added nothing, and negated anything positive in what he said when he went on to cite Factcheck.org ~ NO ONE, not even his closest cronies, trusts that site anymore.
Given any controversy whatsoever, if it has the capacity to make a different candidate President, it's going to be litigated ~ and that has been true ever since the Algore sought to litigate his way into the White House, first by sending in lawyers to stop Florida election clerks from counting absentee ballots received from military personnel serving overseas, and then by bring suit to count all disputed votes in his favor until he had a majority of the votes (in Florida).
It was a precedent ~ the Democrats created the precedent ~ now they'll have to live with it, and people like Alex Keppelman should take their complaint to the Algore, not to us.
It should be addressed, but it is most likely a non-starter.
The consensus says, if he has one just show it and end the speculation, but .............
as we know the demonrats would love a big "Ta - Da" moment.
Besides, even if he aint..............
God save us from Joe "I wish I said that" Biden.
I'm sick of this crap. IF he was born in Hawaii it doesn't matter where his parents were born or their citizenship - he would be natural born citizen. The question is was he really born in Hawaii?
You gotta give the ink time to dry.
What are tehy suggesting -- that Stanley was a slut?
That’s such a good idea, probably you can make a fortune selling them, too.
This may be true in some cases. However, in this case there has not been much supporting data offered. I believe if the original birth certificate were presented and judged by most experts to be valid, and if a plausible explanation of Obama's status while in Indonesia was offered, the issue would be virtually dead. The author may be correct that there would remain some committed conspiritorialists like the 911 deniers. However, if the data are not presented, Obama's presidential legitimacy will always be in question.
This story ain’t ever gunna go away...:0/
It will never die for 2 reasons:
1. We won’t let it.
2. BO won’t settle it because he can’t.
Said it. Done.
Not necessarily, because while I never questioned it until it came up on the web, how do I know what is true and not a forgery? I have NO proof he is not a NB citizen. Neither do I have ANY proof that he is not a NB citizen.
Did it not first come out on Kos? Isn't that a little odd? Still it doesn't prove anything.
That's been suggested several times. Did you see those nude photos of Stanley Ann?
