Barack Obama, Sarah Palin dogged by Internet birth rumors (see Chicago contort +twist facts)
Chicago Tribune ^ | 12-6-08 | Colin McMahon

Posted on 12/06/2008 2:04:09 PM PST by STARWISE

You've heard the story: The birth is a sham, the official line a coverup.

There are no hospital records. The original birth certificate has never been produced. And this person who has talked of bringing honesty and transparency to the nation's highest offices is, in fact, a fraud.

But enough about Sarah Palin.

If you think the attack on Barack Obama's citizenship is the only fringe crusade going, check out what some bloggers are still saying about John McCain's former running mate.

They contend that Sarah Palin lied about the birth of her son Trig.

They are certain that the Down syndrome baby is actually the child of Palin's daughter Bristol or a family friend.

And while Palin's loss in the vice presidential race has turned wails of outrage into whispers of frustration, it has not stopped the conspiracy theorizing. Never mind that the Alaska governor returned home to pardon turkeys and Obama is preparing to take over the country

How frickin’ stupid. What are they, eight? The logic works like this:

Sarah Palin had a bad rumour about a birth
Barack Hussein Obama had a bad rumour about birth

Sarah Palins’s rumour is false
Therefore, Barack Hussein Obama’s rumour is false as well

If Palin lied about Trig there are no Constitutional implications. Comparing the two is inane.

OK, fair’s fair. Sarah will produce the doctors, the nurses, the friends who visited, the photos of her pregnant (which we have all seen) if Obama produces his real birth certificate.

This article is completely disgusting. The highest form of misrepresentation.

Let’s see. Sarah is in her 40s right? So that makes pregnancy high risk in many ways does it not and not the least of which could mean a child with a birth difficulty. Trig has Downs Syndrome. So what, he is a darling baby and loved so much. Sarah knows she is his mommy and to hell with the lousy MSM.
What do you wannt bet if she went on 0prah that would be one of the first tacky questions the Queen of Day Time Shows would ask her!

Hey now, they’ve ruined Chicago, but much of the rest of the state is still relatively sane. I haven’t looked at the county breakdown for this election, but in 2000 and 2004 the only counties that went blue were Cook County (Chicago), Champaign Country (University of Illinois, my uber-liberal alma mater), and maybe two of the north Chicago suburbs.

I’m perfectly content about hearing “whatever” about Palin’s pregnancy — as long as — Obama produces his original long form birth certificate... LOL...

You don’t see me running around trying to discredit anyone talking about Palin’s pregnancy..., but the “Obots” are sure doing it with Obama’s birth certificate

That tells you a lot, right there...

It was reported yesterday that he will be taking a vacation there with his family in a five star resort.

He is either on his way or will be leaving soon- i’m not sure of the exact departure date.

The weirdest part of the "Trig is Bristol's baby" line, it that she would have been 7 months pregnant and when she really got pregnant.

I bet that would have made news in the medical journals!

I live in DuPage County which USED to be CONSERVATIVE. I was literally SHOCKED to find out that 54% of DuPage County voted for Obama! I know there are still some consrvative counties in Illinois but they seem to be getting fewer and fewer.

Right, Starwise. Also, I was watching carefully when Sarah’s med records were released. Her med history, signed and summarized by her dr., specifically said that Sarah had birthed five children. That report gave us everything we needed to know, even the benign breast biopsy she had years ago. So to the Obamabots—don’t even GO there. Dems keep touting that pregnancy rumor because it’s something THEY’d try to scam the public with.

If they think they are being clever, by combining the two stories, it isn’t going to work.

In fact, everyone, from now on, we all have to be very suspicious of anything the media puts out, whether it is about Obama or not.

I do believe that the media in all it’s forms is not to be trusted, so we all must do our due diligence and verify, everything.

This is a silly attempt.

This must have come from the Obama camp. Obama, like Joseph Goebbels, usually resorts to ridicule rather than honest debate. From “communist because I shared by toys” to Nancy Reagan and seances, use of ridicule is second nature to Obama.

Unlike the ‘truthers’ I am fully willing to admit that Obama was born in Hawaii. However, the Donfrio lawsuit claims that Obama in NOT a natural-born citizen based on his father’s nationality; nowhere is there an assertion that Obama fabricated his birth. It is a point of law and not a point of cover-up.

Chicago Tribune doing their Kabuki Slapstick.

Conservatives need to expose Obama at every move and keep
it up. We want the wheels off his cart before he takes
us all the way to Marxism.

Conservatives who are fighting for freedom have a double
battle. We have to fight the Far Left and the Neo Left AKA
Libertarians who are equally anti war, and would rather fight Conservatives than liberals.

Christmastime in Kailua is on Obama's agenda

Kailua no ka oi — at least when it comes to presidential retreats.

President-elect Barack Obama will return to the Windward Oahu neighborhood when he and his family spend a Christmastime vacation in Hawaii, according to one report.

The Obamas and the families of two or three friends will stay at a beachside villa with three multimillion-dollar homes, the Associated Press reported.

Each wraps around a lagoon-style swimming pool, with palm trees, grassy lawns and retractable glass walls for views of the white sand and windsurfers.

It is not the same large Kailua beachside home at which the Obamas stayed during his weeklong vacation in August before the Democratic National Convention.

This will be the future president's third trip to Oahu this year.

In late October, less than two weeks before the election, Obama spent about 22 hours in Honolulu visiting his dying grandmother, Madelyn Dunham. This month's trip reportedly will include a private family memorial for Dunham, who died Nov. 2.

~~~

Maybe something like this?

Since we know we cant believe anything that comes from the POS-elect or his cronies, let’s get real about his previous hawaii trip. She was already dead when he made that trip, but the campaign didnt announce her death until the night before the election, for maximum effect.

He didnt go there for more than several days after it was announced she was on her deathbed- the reality is that when they announced “deathbed’ it was code for ‘dead”. Then he finally went, not to “visit” her, but to make arrangements for her burial/funeral, and while there, got the governor of hawaii to seal his BC from any release.

His version of that trip, as with his version of everything that comes out of his mouth, is a transparent manipulation of the truth for political reasons. He’s a Marxist- the ends justify the means.

This article represents the same old lefty "equivalance" game as so often played by the MSM acolytes.

Medical science tells us that a Down's Syndrome baby is many many times more likely to be born to a mother over 40 than to a teenage mother. So the chances of Trig Palin being born to Sarah's daughter, as compared to the chances of him being born to the governor, are minute.

Contrast that to the chances of Obama being born in Kenya, when he has produced no bona bide proof of birth elsewhere and both his paternal grandmother and the Kenyan ambassador to the US have stated that he was born there.

This Colin McMahon fellow is completely bankrupt of logic in his misguided attempt to be "even handed" about the two issues. He sounds like a recent product of dumbed down public school "education."
