This could be the beginning of the story gaining legs. Maybe enough people are souring on the Obammy that they will start seeing this as a way out.

I know--I know--I'm dreaming--LOL! I do think it is significant though, that the LA times came out with this.

Wow. First I came around on Ron Paul, and now Alan Keyes is sounding to me like the most articulate commentator I’ve heard on our current situation.

That’s just how dire our circumstances are.

Nothing. But it was tried BEFORE the election when it mattered. You don't actually expect anything to come of this do you?

And even if it did, who would take over? Joe Biden? Do you think that would make things better?

You actually thing anything will come of this other than to make Conservatives look like kooks?

Has it ever occurred to you that that might be just what the LA Times is trying to do?

Since when does the Slimes give a flying fig about what Alan Keyes or any other Conservative says or does?

There is no way that he can be qualified, focusing on whether he was born in Kenya or Hawaii is the wrong idea. There are so many other factors that he could have been born at Monticello and he would only be at best a native born citizen, he can never be and never has been a NATURAL born citizen as the constitution requires. The DNC has foisted a Muslim Manchurian candidate on us.

I don’t think it would make things any worse. At least Biden is constitutionally qualified and I can’t believe he is worse in any other meaningful way.

No surprise.

They are not reporting the truth but the lie.

Under Zero's Certificate of Live Birth. they have click on Obamas birth certificate.

The image is of his COLB not a BC.

LA Slimes.

This is a ploy to make you, Alan Keyes and anyone else whose hackles are raised by Obamalamadingdong's Presency look like foaming-at-the-mouth right-wing nutcases.

The foaming-at-the-mouth left-wing nutcases in the media have already demonstrated that they aren't going to lift a finger to disqualify Zero from being Comrade-in-Chief.

I'm just trying to help you. Don't waste your valuable energy getting all worked up over this. Nothing will come of it.

Wow! Excellent. Needs to be played on every major news network. Ooops...that won’t happen.

Still need to keep the heat on the BC issue, though. It’s an issue that needs to be fully aired and properly resolved.

"Joe Biden? Do you think that would make things better? "

Yes, I actually think it would be better for conservatives...Biden is not the "annointed one". Not only would he not have as much "clout" as Zero, he would soon make even more of a buffoon of himself than he already has.

Your reluctance for us to even try to push the BC thing leads us all to think that maybe you're an obama plant here on FR.

Is it because the MSM and a few obamites have scoffed at the idea that zero might not be a natural born American, or do you just like the way he's ruled so far and want to see him continue down this path to doom.

Nothing has been concluded about the BC...nothing...and anytime a man spends over a million dollars to hide something, I kinda figure there might be some fire behind the smoke.

I wish Alan Keyes all the luck in the world and I can only imagine the events that would take place if his lawsuit proves the annointed one to be a Kenyan. He looks like one, and acts like one; he obviously doesn't share the passion for America as most people do, and he's taking straight to hell.

I'm sure glad you weren't on the cheerleading team when Columbus struck out for the new world, or when Jonus Salk was looking for the vaccine, or when we sent folks to the moon....we'd still be in Spain, suffering from polio and wondering if the moon was really made of green cheese.

I just find it very interesting that Zero is doing exactly the sorts of things that our founders gave as reasons for the natural born requirement.

You’re not doing anyone any favors. you’d do yourself a favor to respond the points made rather than to stifle discussion by attempting to ridicule posters who think the law is important.

By your own admission, you didn’t “read” the piece - which was obvious anyway b/c it’s a video.

There is nothing preventing you from allowing yourself the freedom to rationalize broken laws - go ahead = continue to knock yourself out.

But it’s a little silly to mock others for their belief in the rule of law.

I keep hearing that BO has spent millions to suppress his lack of a BC; where has this been documented and where can it be cited? We need to know what law firm is represetnig him in this matter so we are on a firm foundation here.

There is a way to talk about this issue without looking like you are nuts.
However, I must point out, our enemies on the left never seem to worry about looking nuts, and that we should stop worrying so much about it, ourselves.
We should try to avoid petty or personal attacks. We should try to back up our statements with facts.
-— But why should we worry about what questions we ask?
We have a right to ask for a copy of Obama’s Vault Copy Birth Certificate.
We have a right to ask for a copy of Obama’s passport, and his passport application(s)
We have a right to ask if Obama ever gained admission to any College or University based on his dual-citizenship status or foreign status.
We have a right to ask If Obama ever received any financial aid due to his foreign citizenship status.
We have a right to ask for Obama’s school records, and admission papers, from every school he attended.

Look at the stuff that Republican Presidents were asked to produce. Most of the time, Republican candidates and Republican Presidents grant such requests.

What is the big secret? Why so many secrets?

Grow a pair, conservatives.

We have a RIGHT to ask these questions. They might not have a legal chance of removing Obama, but they lower Obama’s credibility far more than these questions can hurt us.

Obama is famous because of his flim-flam “auto-biographies” -— Obama deserves the same treatment as any other book writer that Oprah endorses, who turns out later to be a fraud.

Squishy, Chicken “conservatives” need to quit wasting THEIR time telling us to drop this issue. We won't. Therefore, it is you wimpy types who are wasting your time.

One other thing: What if we can get a State to REQUIRE a certified copy of an original vault copy birth certificate, before anyone goes on the Presidential Ballot, in that State? We also need to get a State to pass a law saying that no ELECTORS from that State will be given to any candidate who has not met the Birth Cert. requirement.

This would be a great tool to embarrass Obama. Obama has already stated that releasing his actual, vault copy Birth Certificate would embarrass him. Obama, through his attorney, has already told us how we can hurt him -— so LET'S DO IT!

(As stated on other threads, the problem MIGHT be paternity, and not geography.)

Indeed he did. It’ about time people stopped using this socialist crap. He isn’t a socialist, he is a full blown Communist. People underestimate him and I’m sure he is thrilled that people call him a Socialist as that hides what he really is.

I was reading your various comments on the birth certificate controversy and decided to look at your profile. I completely forgot about the whole issue as I read the Psalm you have up there! Talk about the power to restore sanity and calm down a worried mind! God’s wisdom is wonderful.

At the risk of sounding all mockulatory, I do believe in the rule of law but I don't believe the LA Times does.

I will make this prediction though.

The day after President Sarah Palin takes the oath of office in Jan., 2017, the left-wing media will quietly reveal that they knew all along that Soetoro.....errrr....I mean Obama.....was Constitutionally disqualified from being Present.

Actually, now that I think about it, what the left-wing media will argue is that since Obamalamadingdong is not Constitutionally qualified to be Present, he's not Constitutionally bound to serving only two terms.

Dammit. I shouldn't go giving them ideas. But, hell, it's out there now.

You can all send me nasty-grams when the time comes. I deserve it.
