Apparently, It Is Dumb To Ask For Physical Proof Regarding Obama
Stop the ACLU ^ | 2/16/09 | staff

Posted on 02/17/2009 11:38:39 AM PST by pissant

After eight years of the Left accusing Bush of everything that they don’t blame on anthropogenic global warming, and sometimes they blame both, with little to no proof, lefties, still riding high on hopeNchange, and probably the fumes from their black velvet Obama paintings, just do not like it when anyone asks for simple proof of Obama’s citizenship. Witness barking moonbat, and member of The Tennessean, Gail Kerr take on the subject of Barry’s birth certificate (and, hopefully, Jenny Craig):

****

In the Handy Guide for Newspaper Opinion Columnists, this is called shooting fish in a barrel. Or hitting a slow-pitched softball.

Four Tennessee state representatives, all Republicans, have signed up to be plaintiffs in a lawsuit against President Barack Obama, aimed at forcing him to prove he is a United States citizen by coughing up his birth certificate.

Let me just say what all the world is now thinking, including their fellow Republicans on the Hill: This is dumber than a box of rocks.

Yes. Just plain dumb, I tell ya! It is also dumb to expect and demand the President of the United States actually has more executive experience than running for President of the United States.

Obama hires lawyers to hide is birth certificate, Occidental records, etc. because “there’s nothing to hide”.

At least there’s what some folks want us to believe ...

Malkin, Limbaugh and other leading media conservatives dismiss this essential issue without any tangible rationale.

One has to wonder why.

An interesting comment about birth certificates -

Recently I needed certified copies of my birth certificate and got them from the Department of Public Health in Iowa.

They actually include a photocopy of my original certificate of live birth, signed by the doctor who delivered me.

What is so hard about that?

Seems Obama would rather spend 100s of 1000s of dollars for lawyers than $12 for a vault copy of his BC. And the kneepaders in the press just swallow it.

It is beginning to occur to many...that our vaunted press may be on the take. Rumors that Soros and other leftwing money may be talking, and not the evening news broadcasters.

Know what though? I haven’t believed anything I’ve seen in tv news since Cronkite told me in 1963 that Kennedy was killed by a lonenut assassin, who in turn, was killed by a lonenut assassin.

Johnson and Hoover had nothing to do with it...Walter told me.

I doubt it...I think Hillary would be President (or McCain) if THAT were the case.

There's nothing to hide because they've hidden everything. Better put, "there's nothing left to hide".

Certainly seems that way.

And the only woman in the western world that knew anything about the birth ... just happened to die about 36 hours before the election on Nov. 4.

Would have been interesting to hear what she might have had to say about the thing, to lend info one way or another.

Since bribery is illegal, how about something that’s legal? HI has an open records law. Someone else - since I can’t do everything - can file a request for all the communication from Janice Okubo (and others in her office) to various news organizations (especially the chicagotribune and factcheck) as well as all the internal communication between her (and others in her office) and Dr. Fukino and other top officials. The latter might be tricky, but stress the public interest nature (per their rules, internal negotiations might not be eligible for release, so that’s why you need to stress why it’s important).

I’ve spent hours and hours writing about this from a completely fact-based perspective and promoting it, and it would be great if someone else would do something useful by filing such a request.

You should have run for President. Such documentation would not have been required ... apparently ...

48 lawsuits -- all have lawyers -- it's got to be in over $1 million by now.

Obama's lawyer in the Alan Keyes suit, Fredric Woocher, was selected as a "Southern California Super Lawyer, 2009," and practices "political law." He's good for at least $600 per hour -- probably more -- and he's not working the case alone.

It's certainly dumb to keep asking for it when it has already been proven beyond a reasonable doubt, as in Obama's case.

Lots of them. Here:

http://www.factcheck.org/UploadedFiles/birth_certificate_2.jpg

Here:

http://wikileaks.org/leak/obama-1961-birth-announcement-from-honolulu-advertiser.pdf

Note that the newspaper, at the top, specifically states birth announcements come from the bureau of health statistics. They were not phoned in by parents.

There's the testimony of his former school teacher and friend of his family who remembers hearing about his birth around the time it happened.

http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2009/01/more-testimony-obama-was-born-in-k/

Finally, at least two of his Kenyan relatives are on record that he was not born in Kenya.

Here's his Kenyan uncle:

http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2009/01/obama-uncle-confirms-not-born-in-kenya/

The following webpage has a link to an audio recording in which Sarah Obama, his step grandmother, explicitly says he was born in Hawaii:

http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2009/01/independent-grandmother-transcript/

Here's a an interview she gave two years ago where she recounts how she learned about his birth in Hawaii:

http://redeye.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,2,4270287.story

Not a single whitness or relative has come forward to claim he was born in Kenya.

There is, in fact, not a shred of evidence he was born anywhere other than Hawaii. There is, however, plenty of evidence that he was born in Hawaii.

I'd say that's proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

Starting with the factcheck BS, you have exposed yourself as a complete fraud on this subject.

Why is the photograph BS? What's wrong with it?

By dismissing it and the rest of my evidence out of hand, you have shown yourself to be willfully blind.

Have fun in your delusions.

How long have you been following this story? I’ve seen all the “evidence” you mentioned multiple times. Have you seen any of the multitude of threads debunking Factcheck? They cannot even differentiate between a birth certificate and COLB.

Have you seen the quotes from the people that owned the home listed as the address of Obama Sr and his lovely bride?

Educate yourself.

About 4 months.

Yes, and those threads are full of crap.

Have you seen the quotes from the people that owned the home listed as the address of Obama Sr and his lovely bride?

Yup. Also full of crap. It's hearsay, third-hand testimony in an unnotorized affidavit. Do you not bother to check up on any of these birther claims for yourself?

Educate yourself.

I have, thank you very much.

It is you who are in need of an education. You don't seem to understand what education means. It doesn't mean reading a bunch of crap on the internet. To be truly educated means demanding evidence and verifying claims you hear, not accepting everythign WorldNutDaily prints on faith.

Your problem, like that of most birthers, is a willingness to believe anything negative you read about Obama, no matter how questionable the source. You never do any work to check whether the outrageous claims made by people like Berg or Farah or Orly have any foundation in fact.

If you want to be educated, go check up on these claims for yourself. I know you won't, so I'm wasting my time, but whatever, there's my two cents.

Long before anyone ever heard of Phil Berg and Orly Taitze and the rest of these folks, freepers, including ME determined that the COLB was a forgery. Now if you want to believe the leftwing Factcheck, that is your business. But you probably are in the wrong forum.
