Obama 'illegal alien:' Liddy and 'birthers' (MSM says it's racism)
The Chicago Tribune ^ | July 24, 2009 | Mark Silva

Posted on 07/24/2009 2:01:38 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

It's been one of those weeks.

A week when the nation was asked to focus on long-sought healthcare reform, a week when a lot of people wanted to talk about President Barack Obama's birthplace.

"This whole thing could be settled in a minute if the president would simply produce a valid birth certificate,'' said - wait - G. Gordon Liddy, arbiter of all things up and up.

Well, replied MSNBC's Chris Matthews of Hardball, the Honolulu-born president has in fact supplied the sort of certificate that anyone needs to apply for a passport. Matthews held it up. Still, radio talk-show host and Watergate scandal veteran Liddy wanted to talk about the unsubstantiated talk that Obama was born in Kenya, the deposition of a step-grandmother that he was born in Mombassa - not the report in the Honolulu papers that he was born there.

If the president was born abroad, Matthews followed up with, and never has gone through a naturalization process, what would that make him?

"An illegal alien,'' Liddy said.

--snip--

"This is because many people in this nation cannot still accept the fact that a brilliant African-American is the commander-in-chief,'' Collins said. "and they're looking for ways to reduce the greatness of not just his intellect, but his honest and his purity as a person who is serving this nation.''(continued)

This story ain't going away, no matter how hard you wish and pray. Ten dollars could solve this whole "problem" but for some reason he's not going to release it.

Apparently if it comes out that he was born elswhere they will say “So what?”

So what? Then he is a liar and a fraud.

Color is never the issue, but what is between a mans ears and in his heart.

And if they do not want to talk about his birth certificate etc, then how a bout his school records in the USA? Why is Obama fighting the release of any school records in the USA? Is it because it says he was an exchange student?

A deeper matter is involved here, not merely where the physical birth took place, though that is apparently still in question.

When Barry Soetoro was living in Indonesia, he assumed the citizenship of that country, whether by his own volition or not. We do not know, if upon turning 21, and presumedly an adult, he ever chose to renounce that citizenship, and if in fact he does have citizenship papers ever prepared to that effect. The fact remains, he traveled, sometimes quite extensively, on a passport NOT of US issue.

There was a movie, some number of years in the past, and a more recent remake, called “The Manchurian Candidate”.

This is real-life exercise of “the Indonesian candidate”.

I think 0bambi can't let his actual birth certificate be released, lest it show that:
1) his personally-released COLB (through DailyKOS) was altered and therefore a fraud, and
2) combined with information Zero didn't anticipate, the real BC will prove conclusively that Zero's not a natural-born citizen, meaning--he thinks--he'd have to have a confrontation with SCOTUS, meaning tanks on their DC steps. He' thinks it's too early in his presidency for that; he'd've preferred such shock and awe to come only after his irreversible dictatorship status was established.

Major Wood and Orly Taitz aren't going anywhere. Is Judge Carter? Time and inaction on this front are what he hopes for, but if we're headed for court-directed action, he'll try to pre-empt the (non-)Constitutional stand-off.

As Hussein’s polls and performance plummet, the interest in his eligibility will only increase. This interest will go into the independent and moderate ranks as well.

All Hussein needs to do is to produce the COB and is acedemic applications. Those will prove where he is born and what nationality he is. If he is legit, it would take 2 seconds to produce and the issue would go away. Yet, he spends a million dollars to prevent those in seeing it.

Growing suspicious with each passing day.......

Hussein’s marxist, socialist healthcare bill with a declining approval rating means the rest of us are bigots. Can’t the Democrats use some brains and come up with a better one than that?

*************

That is the reason (foreign student aid) IMO. The icing on the cake if they were to be released would be that they would show that this “brilliant” man had not-so-brilliant grades.

No doubt in my mind.

They must really be sweating bullets if they are resorting to accusations of racism. They risk alienating the very people who helped him win the office.

There can be no good come to them by using this approach.

This week, Obama jumped on the Cambridge Police Department for acting stupidly- now the big mouth is apologizing. These sudden spurts of verbal anger are NOT evidence of someone who is brilliant.

Excerpt-
“This is because many people in this nation cannot still accept the fact that a brilliant African-American is the commander-in-chief,’’ Collins said.

No, I did not describe his ears, but found fault with the mindset that inhabits the space between his ears. He may or may not be a Natural Born U.S. Citizen, but he definately is a "Natural Born Commie".

I like G. Gordon Liddy.

He never told anything about what went on at the Watergate. Not once. He served his prison time, in a hostile prison environment (racially). He has stated that he felt the reason no one messed with him, is because they were afraid of him. (Possibly so)

He was educated as an attorney and was connected with the FBI and other agencies when they were not like they are now.

He is articulate, well educated, and a little quirky. Possibly the biggest reason I like to listen to him is that he tends to think for himself.

One can be brilliant, yet troubled. They are NOT mutually exclusive. As it is, I believe he is NOT brilliant, and is terribly neurotic. His behavior during the campaign was disturbing (thrusting his pelvis at hooting and hollering reporters on his plane, popping the finger at various people during speeches...). He is a messed up, little man.

I don’t see how he could have good grades in either history or government. He seems to know NO history of western civilization. As far as U.S. government goes, he didn’t even know that we have 50 states!!! How stupid is that?

It seems to me that Obama’s backers did not realize how stupid he is.

He as much said so in his book “Dreams”, but the shame is on us and our nonsensical ideology of everything is equal which in time devolves to feel good emotionalism, and hence our country is a laughingstock.

Whow! Did I just hear what I think I heard?

Chris Matthews announcing the fact that within the next few weeks, Barack Obama’s fake Certification of Live Birth will be proven genuine? And that if it is, Liddy will have to admit publish it?

So to set the record straight: If it isn’t “proven” genuine, Chris Matthews will have to admit he is wrong?

This whole exchange comes at the very end of the tape.

Why is it that a 90 IQ makes a leftard brilliant, but a conservative with a 180 IQ is a moron?

The demonrats have not put forward a brilliant candidate in my lifetime.

The Constitution requires the person seeking office to PROVE they are qualified. Here, Obama argues that the people of the United States of America have the burden of proving that a president is not qualified. That argument is absurd. He has the political power to make sure nobody can ever prove anything. We are being raped by Obama and his thugs. Obama must prove he is qualified to hold office or he needs to call a good moving company...

Constant deflection--anything but the birth certificate.

How they howl, how they squeal.

ali Hussein spends hundreds of thousands of dollars to suppress a ten-dollar document.

ali Hussein's grandmother is proud he was born in Kenya.

Clearly the boy-king must pretend to conform to Article II Section 1 Paragraph 5 requiring the president be a "natural born Citizen".

That he is not is more apparent every day, with ever-increasing squealing from shrieking fairies and carping harpies.

They scream that the emperor is arrayed in the finest fashion and fabric but he looks quite naked.

Show us this birth certificate.

Not another forgery like the images to date.

The democrats do not put forward a brilliant candidate, because they think brilliant means the ability to rudely run your mouth over other speakers in congressional hearings or on TV. This attitude is part of the Africanization of the United States.

The majority of voters on the political left are from the left side of the Bell Curve. I would judge Obama’s IQ at about 92.

“They may THINK they have a high IQ, but, alas... they only fool themselves.”
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

IQ testing leaves too much unmeasured anyway, one may find someone with a genius level IQ working for minimum wage or even unemployed. A high IQ coupled with a number of other important traits usually results in high achievement, alone it doesn’t mean a lot. So some of those people are NOT fooling themselves, they DO have a high IQ, they simply lack the other qualities needed. A high IQ individual can make idiotic decisions the same as an idiot can make.

“One cannot be a liberal and have a high IQ.”

However, one can be a *default* liberal and have a high IQ.

What I mean by “default liberal” is a person who is a liberal because everyone around him is, and because the media tell him he must be, but who has not brought any intellectual rigor to bear on the matter.

If such a person were as quick to understand philosophy as he is to grasp his scientific field, he would easily see that leftist thought is fatally flawed. Since he assumes, wrongly, that he is as quick to understand philosophy as science, he reasons that, if leftist thought were fatally flawed, he would easily see the flaws.

His passions lie elsewhere, his time and resources are limited (as are everyone’s), everyone around him approves of his liberalism, he enjoys liberalism’s assumption of moral superiority, and his examination of the philosophical questions involved in leftism’s war against mankind ends right there.

Ecce, the default liberal.

TOO LATE NOW! There are now some constitutional/legislative “theologians” who say that even IF the DemocRAT votes COULD be found to impeach him, that Obama is legally UNIMPEACHABLE, if in fact he is not a natural-born American. They say that, because then he would never have been eligible to hold the office in the first place, and so is NOT the President, and thus CANNOT be impeached! The articles simply would NOT APPLY to him, any more than they would to you or me. Meanwhile, he occupies the White House, sitting around smoking cigars, drinking Crown Royal, and flitting about on Air Force One. If true, HOW would he be removed from the White House? Perhaps via an ordinary EVICTION process? Don’t let the media bury this story!
