Biden Tells Obama Birth Certificate Joke at Gridiron Dinner
Sunday, March 22, 2009 | Kristinn

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 Obama’s 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.

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.

I heard “Thank you Mr. Justice.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

These Communists are shameless. I shouldn't be surprised. They are just like their idols...

If there was anything that should make people on the fence about the Birth Certificate suits and such pay attention it should be this. They have flagrantly violated parts of the Constitution in their proposals, and in the passage of the Bill of Attainder last Thursday (3/19). And, now, thay are laughing because they have stacked the court with their Leftist Acolytes... There would be absolutely no harm done to Obama whatsoever if the State of Hawaii turned over documents to a judge, and lawyers if Obama is telling the truth. He acts like a man with something to hide...

If the lawyers who have filed these suits have a chance to look over the documents and we have a group of them in agreement that everything is on the "up and up" with is citizenship, name, residency status, etc... then fine -- we'll just try to get him impeached on the violations of the Constitution and for lying to the American Public and possibly committing fraud through the Bailout Bill and the AIG Bill of Attainder... (Not to mention the other draconian and Communist bills flying around the desks on Capitol Hill.)

And, if things are NOT in order with is legal citizenship status then we can free ourselves of this tyrant, and his laws before they have a chance to hurt even more people than he already has in his 2 months in office.

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.

Actually Obama is the butt of the joke. As Bill Richardson showed when he admitted on tape that Obama was an immigrant; the fact that OB is not a natural born citizen is widely know in politcial circles. He can easily be blackmailed by the leaders of the dems. So people like Pelosi, Clinton, and Reid have power over him.

They all have guilty knowledge.

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!

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.

Misdirection

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
