On Birthers, Obama, Muslims, and More (birth certificate is a distraction)
Red State ^ | July 29, 2009 | Erick Erickson

Posted on 07/29/2009 7:02:37 PM PDT by St. Louis Conservative

I’ve said for a long time now that the fixation on Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a distraction.

I think Barack Obama is a natural born American citizen because his mother was indisputably an American citizen. I think he meets the residency requirements. And I think that Justice Scalia himself would not throw the President out of office now that he has been sworn in.

The issue is moot.

Fixating on it now is wasting time, precious time, when there are other issues on which those with time on their hands can fixate.

Barack Obama not releasing his birth certificate fits a pattern of non-disclosure from the man.

Most notoriously, Barack Obama allowed is campaign to accept foreign donations, a matter that got passing mention from the Washington Post and not much else.

Conservative activists at Red State have declared this a distraction and a dead issue - and I agree.

There's no way to 'prove' anything here. Even if you produce evidence, do you think the military is gonna remove Obama from office just like in Honduras? Even if you 'win', you can't win.

Let's move on - we need all our energies focused on stopping ObamaCare and cap n' tax

This probably gets asked all the time but which document did Obama use to get his passport when he was a young man?

If Fidel Castro had an American parent and a Cuban parent and became POTUS; would you still feel the same way?

The issue is legitmate and real. All he has to do is show his real and verified bc.

What perplexes me is why Conservatives did not bother to vet Obama before the election. Never in modern times have we elected a President about whom we know only what he has told us and whose personal records remain concealed.

Nope, the issue is not “moot”, or not relative. IT IS VERY RELATIVE to the survival of this country. THIS MAN IS A COUNTERFIET who has set up his regime with his Commisars, as has been done before in Germany and Rssia. Call them what you will: Fascists, call them Socialists; call them Democrats..... BUT:

If this person was not vetted by Pelosi, as she swore he was, and He WILL NOT nor CANNOT prove that he is eligible, than both of them should go on trial for massive FRAUD!! What happens then to all these bills he is ramming down our throats?????? WE LIVED A LONG TIME W/O OMAMBACARE and CAP & TRADE.... WHAT THE heck is the rush?????? ALINKY perhaps?

First things first.... SHOW US THE REAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND YOUR OTHER RECORDS AND THEN, and only THEN, will we shut up.

EVERYONE ELSE HAS TO PROVIDE A BIRTH CERTIFICATE. WHY ARE YOU SPECIAL? Beause you are a COUNTERFEIT.

No kidding, I'm tired of hearing that crap from morons who apparently can't do more than one thing at a time.

He’s not going to release it. Ever.

Just like he won’t release any of his other records - college transcripts, Annenberg board minutes, etc. It’s not going to happen and if you sue in court, the White House will claim executive privilege and/or their lawyers will bog the thing down in court.

Bottom line, it’ll never happen.

Time to move on!

Justice Scalia not voting to remove him, does not make the situation moot, nor does it make it go away.

This is a search for truth to ensure that the president of the US did not commit one of the most grevious frauds in history.

The best evidence has not been shown to the public or a court. The search for truth will carry on even after his death, if necessary. Truth is one of the most fundamental values. You and others have been worn down before that goal has been reached. So go away and we'll carry the water for you.

Has anyone figured out yet that all those articles remonstrating the “birthers” for keeping the issue alive is keeping the issue alive?

I believe there have been more articles criticizing the birthers the past few days than articles advocating the birther positions.

Why would the military have to remove him if he’s really ineligible? At that point, isn’t fraud and conspiracy to commit a criminal matter? I’d think issuing a simple warrant would suffice.

I believe the Secret Service would “produce” him if it comes to that.

Because he’s an arrogant, corrupt, Chicago thug politician. Whatever the reasons, he’s not going to release it, and he won’t be forced to either because the White House always has ways of getting around such things.

that is like saying, we can’t win, so why not just give up! That’s not my style. TRUTH is TRUTH and LIES change all the time. THIS Counterfeit will not win this battle. If we give this up, HE becomes a dictator with his czars and within a generation the US will not be recognizable as the free country it once was.

You can’t placate a LIAR and a THIEF and a MURDERER, they HAVE to be held accountable. Mr. Young and Mr. Harris are in their graves because of this Counterfeit, and I won’t have a share in their blood on my hands. Someone MUST be held accountable.

Ya know what?
I don’t give a rat’s anal portal what you think.

Eventually, truth will come out and we will
be proud to uphold our constitution.

Till then, Mo Fo

I’m not necessarily a birther. However, I think it only prudent to question the eligibility of anyone who is in a position to make decisions about our country, taxes, military, health issues, etc., at the presidential level. Just say’n

Ok, thanks.

I’ll focus on stopping ObamaCare while you search for your white whale.
