Gibbs: Couldn't sell birther story in Hollywood (Paging Oliver Stone.. WH Courtesy Phone!!)
The Hill ^ | 8/6/09 | Sam Youngman

Posted on 08/06/2009 10:14:29 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

The White House on Thursday mocked the idea that some continue to disbelieve that President Barack Obama was born in the U.S., saying "you couldn't sell that to The WB."

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs joked about what he sees as the absurd notion that a pregnant woman would fly to Kenya to have a child, being in "cahoots" with someone in order to smuggle the newborn illegal alien back to the U.S. and forge a birth certificate so that child could run for president "46 and a half years later."

"You couldn't sell that script in Hollywood," Gibbs said.

When it was suggested that script might actually sell in Hollywood, Gibbs protested: "Not one that totally crazy."

Meryl Streep as his Mom?

Jamie Fox as his Dad.
Chris Rock as his other Dad.

You could sell that one faster than one where a guy is elected President of the U.S. without even producing his birth certificate.

I think it’s become quite obvious that the O admin wants to keep this distraction going. I’d like to see his long form BC myself, but I’m not going to be distracted by this any longer.

Amen.

Let’s move on. The seeds have been sown.

Not until his negatives hit -13 or worse will this play in Peoria.

If my answers sound confusing, I think they are confusing because the questions are confusing and the situation is confusing. Certain elements may try to stretch the Watergate burglary beyond what it is. [1972]
I would apologize to the Post, and I would apologize to Mr. Woodward and Mr. Bernstein. We would all have to say that mistakes were made . . . particularly if you look at them in the context of developments that have taken place.”

Hmmmmmmmm, pregnant women fly all the time. What the heck is Gibbs talking about?

I know, I know—a rhetorical question.

People couldn’t sell anything in Hollywood that had a pro-America viewpoint, so his statement actually means something very different than what he thinks it does.

...forge a birth certificate so that child could run for president "46 and a half years later."

It shows his intelligence level if he thinks the only reason a parent would want a US birth certificate for their child is so that they can run for president in the future. I guess he thinks that's why illegal pregnant Mexican women are risking their lives to have their children born in the US...so they can run for president some day. What a dunce.

Listen, and understand.

Hussein of Mombasa is out there. He can’t be bargained with. He can’t be reasoned with. He doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And he absolutely will not stop, ever, until we are dead.

...smuggle the newborn illegal alien back to the U.S....

Since he was "newly born" to a U.S. citizen, while travelling abroad, he wouldn't be an "illegal alien", and no smuggling would be required. Gibbs is an idiot who just makes stuff up.

If you are that easily distracted perhaps you should practice chewing gum and walking at the same time. Eventually you would learn how to handle several different things at the same time without being distracted. Many of us conservatives are able to focus on health care, cap and tax and BC issues at the same time, for example.

Precisely! The depth of thinking your average liberal talking head is capable of producing couldn't sink a paper boat. What a moron. Pity Mr. Obama won't man-up to the argument one way or the other. Spineless really. And he is a leader? Right.

Your post sounded a lot like a line from the first Terminator movie, so I did a search on goooooooogle images, for “obama terminator” and there it was.

Yep, one of my top ten movie quotes, it just seems to fit with this creep in the WH.

Apparently truth is stranger than fiction>

IF it were Cheney, Palin or Bush, the Hollyfreaks would be all over it and promoting it as a national blockbuster and releasing it to 2,000 theatres.

Hi cal. Why don’t you lay off playing the “us conservatives” card and grab yourself a bowl of STFU? You are one of the people planted here to disrupt and I’m not buying your holier-than-though attitude as genuine, so FO. You want some more? Lets go, I’ve got all day, punk.

What an idiot. Planted? I don't think so. I am a REAL conservative and I can do more than one thing at a time. You are saying that we can't do more than one thing at a time. As for disruptor I would say that you are the distributor, planted on FR to try to discourage people from asking about the BC. Your strident name calling and failure to actually address a specific point, other than mindlessly accusing me of being some type of "plant', proves to me you are most likely a liberal. As I said, take come courses on how to multitask, you might find you can actually do more than one thing at a time.

As for your threat or what ever the he** it is about "having all day", what do you think we can actually get physical over the internet. You are laughable.
