Posted on 03/22/2009 9:56:58 AM PDT by kristinn
Vice President Joe Biden told a joke about Barack Obama's birth certificate at the Gridiron dinner in Washington, D.C. last night.
The joke was reported by Mike Allen at Politico in his article about Biden's intentionally funny speech (as opposed to his usual foot in mouth routine.):
"You know, I never realized just how much power Dick Cheney had until my first day on the job. I walked into my office, and you know how the outgoing president always leaves the incoming president a note in his desk? I opened my drawer and Dick Cheney had left me Barack Obamas birth certificate."
Numerous court cases have been filed demanding documentation by Obama that he meets the Constitution's requirement that a president be a natural born citizen. Obama has fought those lawsuits instead of producing the requested documentation. His campaign produced a document last summer it claimed proved he was a natural born citizen.
Good catch - I should have used the term “brown nosers”
Now that’s funny. I don’t care what you say...
I agree and God help me I would even accept Hillary as VP.
Why does that thought make me cackle like a hyena?? Oh my, one can only hope.
The only thing is that he would not be president because the Obama ticket was invalid anyway. I really do not know what the remedy would be.
One thing for sure. I am positive down to my very soul that Obama is not eligible to be president.
One day the truth will come out. It always does.
Yes, on the YouTube version.
But on the live broadcast, I heard Stevens saying "Congratulations, Mr. President."
Just my perception, of course. At the time I heard it, I couldn't believe my ears.
I don’t know if the justices were in on it. Scalia was eye to eye with Orly and sincerely said he doesn’t know anything about the cases. That included Corts, Bergs, Donofrios and Orlys.
Thomas was at a funeral during the scheduling of one of the conferences. Yet the clerks are forging their names as reviewing the cases.
If the Justices were in on it, they wouldn’t need to have their names forged. They could sign off as denying personally and then decline comment.
Yeah, that was called a “Freudian slip”.
Pretty funny, Joe. You’re working for a Kenyan-born, illegal alien without a Selective Service number. Pretty funny, huh?
If Biden became president because Obama for being unConstitutional, he may pass over Hillary as VP and go with someone who appears to be a moderate Dem, like Evan Bayh.
More likely it was a Certificate of Authenticity for the Teleprompter.
The best that can be said for Joe Biden is that while he wouldn’t do much good, he wouldn’t do much harm either.
The Republic will at least muddle through a Biden administration. Which, though not a pleasant prospect, is infinitely preferable to the Obama fiasco.
If what you say is true, then there really is a Praetorian guard who have the real power at SCOTUS to decide what cases are seen.
Biden ought to go see Oz...maybe he can finally get a brain.
I like that! Has a certain ring around it!
The Messiah preparing for Easter .. get it ?
Truth be told, BHO is entirely too thin-skinned to joke about himself, which is what the Gridiron dinner is all about .. his one attempt at laughing at himself on the Leno show backfired.
I’m sure this was all pre-approved by Obama’s speech writers first. You know, the same ones that gave him the ‘Special Olympic’ line.
Who would have thought we ever would be wishing for Hillary.
We have all the blog posts, including here at FR that watched the cases vanish from the dockets.
As much as it REALLY pains me - put me down in the “I think it’s pretty funny stuff” catagory. DUCK FOR COVER!...INCOMING!!!!!!...
LOL, I was just thinking exactly the same thing..... perhaps Biden actually IS putting a message out there from for the Obamaites :-)
You know, they say in DC if you want a friend, get a dog. Well...that water spaniel hasn’t shown up yet. I’m jus sayin...
It is pure ‘in your face, we won, you go suck eggs; we’ll do as we damned well please and you’ll like it or else.’ Biden is as arrogant as Obama, but not as savvy and no race hustle to fall back on.
This man needs to be removed from office sooner rather than later... I don’t care how much of a “Crisis” it causes, really. He needs to be impeached and investigated for Fraud involved in the bailouts, Civil Rights Violations, and intimidation in sending his ACORN comrades to harass private citizens, and passing a bill of attainder law...
I can think of at least 10-15 bills that have either been proposed or passed now that blatantly violate some part of the Constitution. I don’t think I’ve read one proposal that DOESN’T tear to shred some part of our Civil Rights.
I could go on and on, but I know you’re well aware of what’s happening here...
I hope everyone realizes the gravity of the situation right now.... We are seeing Obama install himself as a dictator, completely ignore the rule of law, and institute oppressive and Unconstitutional laws upon the people of this nation... This is how it started in every country that has been oppressed in this fashion. He is destroying our country in order to gain as much power as quickly as possible... This isn’t something that if we let it carry on is going to be easy to overcome... It’s going to be hard to get Obama investigated, but that must be done as well...
There have to be a FEW GOOD MEN AND WOMEN who will stand up and speak out against Obama — we’re doing so here, but how do we get someone with some kind of power to go on our national media and give a speech demanding and investigation and laying out the reasons why... Lay on the table the reasons we have for requesting an impeachment hearing in Congress. Somehow though we have to address the fact that over half of our Congress either has a conflict of interest in this matter, and some of them are no doubt tied to any crime that may have been committed... How do we work around that...
I don’t want my kids growing up in a Fascist/Communist country! I have friends who came over from Poland and had lived under the Soviets — I DO NOT WANT TO GO THROUGH THAT!
We need somehow to organize a demonstration or something... I don’t know. I feel sort of helpless... Of course, I’ve been warning about this happening for years now (and I’m hardly the only one). If only people would’ve listened instead of calling us kooks... I don’t know if McCain would’ve been better truthfully. Maybe Sarah would’ve slowed down this progression.
The point is — if we don’t do something about this now there is no way we are going to have a fair and free election in 2010. If we even HAVE an election.
Sorry to ramble... This is like a nightmare.
Well (can’t believe I am explaining for Biden)...but the “joke” is that Obama really, really and trully thinks he IS the Messiah...so Easter prep would be a tad time consuming.
They all have guilty knowledge.
*Missed a word! LOL There should be the word “let” before Hillary and Sarah in my post above. :)
I believe over the period that the Natural Born Citizen - Birth Certificate issue has been evolving, Mr. Obama, his staff and administration, for the most part, have made it a tactic to NOT RESPOND to the allegations and the issue as a whole.
Mr. Biden has, with his disgusting and stupid sense of humor, just opened that door and “raised the ante” concerning the issue.
For those of you who are monitoring this site from Washington DC, and we Freepers know you are: I will exercise my “First Amendment Right” to tell Mr. Biden that I personally do not find this situation concerning Mr. Obama’s ineligibilty and failure to produce his long form birth certificate very funny.
Let me repeat for your benefit Mr. Biden what I have posted before on this site about my family’s service to Our Nation.
My deceased father was US Navy Veteran (WWII, Korean and Vietnam Wars) of 30 years service. My eldest brother is US Army Veteran (13 months in Vietnam) of 2 years service. My next eldest brother is a US Navy Veteran (Vietnam and Persian Gulf War Era) of 22 years service. I am a USMC Veteran (Persian Gulf War - Ops Desert Shield/Storm) of 20 years... sum 74 years of active duty service to Our Nation.
We are all “Cold Warriors” as well; having served at the time of the Soviet Union’s reign and its ultimate demise.
We, sir, had to produce our long form birth cerificates for our oaths of enlistment and, in my case, oath of enlistment and OATH OF OFFICE as a Commissioned Officer.
Mr. Biden, the Natural Born Citizen - Birth Cerificate issue in not a joke.
MR. BIDEN, SIR, YOU ARE A JOKE!
I went to the article on Newsmax and they’re just reposting an AP article. So, Obama’s cheering section is the one reporting that he said that.
Whatever you say or think about the tow. W has way more class than O.
And by Wednesday, well be wishing that 0bama were back. Old Joe has never met a minority he wont insult; nor pick a fight against no one.
If that POS becomes POTUS, the whole world will laugh (harder) at us.
Speak for yourself. I would rather have an idiot than a Communist that is also an idiot. I’ll take Biden any day.
Cheney’s copy is probably a fake too! 8^)
The ghosts of Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln appeared to Obama and he stood before them in complete silence. They waited politely to give him time to get over his apparent shock, when Michelle suddenly ran into the room. “Honey, I told you never to turn off your teleprompter!” she said, flipping the switch.
“How can I best serve my country?” Obama asked.
“Yeah, that was called a Freudian slip.”
Yes, just like the little ‘slippy Pooh’ he made about “my Muslim faith” in his interview with George sycophantopolos... er, I mean, George Stephanopoulos.
They are attempting to make everyone forget their agenda of requiring our combat troops to use privqate insurance
Pre-existing combat injuries tossed into the mandatory mix of health insururer’s underwriting
This would be impossible and bankrupt insurance companies
The Feds would step in with nationalized health insurance for everyone - 1/6th of the US GNP
This would cut voluntary emlistments - opening the door for a mandatory draft in the military and radical agendas by Hussein II
Total control by Hussein II
I liked it better as “tow” because it rhymes.
If ya got it, ya got it!
ahh...reading it from the original article, it makes more sense. I was just going by how it was posted in #13.
I'm sure he is. If I were him, I'd love it if my opposition were chasing its tail and wasting its time on an issue that's going nowhere.
You are NOT LYING.
I was all geared up for a fight against Hillary last year, I was NOT prepared to pray she won the primary.
Thank you for all your family's service to our country.
God Bless you.
Is it wrong for me as a non-Marine to say Semper Fi? Well I'll say it anyway: Semper Fi Marine!
