Skip to comments.Palin: Obama birth certificate 'a fair question'
Posted on 12/03/2009 8:10:17 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Speaking to the conservative talker Rusty Humphries today, Sarah Palin left the door open to speculation about President Obama's birth certificate.
"Would you make the birth certificate an issue if you ran?" she was asked (around 9 minutes into the video above).
"I think the public rightfully is still making it an issue. I don't have a problem with that. I don't know if I would have to bother to make it an issue, because I think that members of the electorate still want answers," she replied.
"Do you think it's a fair question to be looking at?" Humphries persisted.
"I think it's a fair question, just like I think past association and past voting records -- all of that is fair game," Palin said. "The McCain-Palin campaign didn't do a good enough job in that area."
McCain's campaign counsel has said the campaign did look into the birth certificate question and, like every other serious examination, dismissed it.(continued)

I just don’t see how the birther take would be as convincing a platform as maybe writing an op-ed on how to fix the economy. I’d focus on that but hey she is doing fine with her own agenda.
You go, Sarah!
They raised the issue of McCain’s birth certificate, but Wimp McCain couldn’t be bothered to raise the same question about Obama. Oh, that would be racist!
And as Sarah points out, they raised the issue of Trig’s birth certificate, smeared her baby and smeared her daughter. Why was that OK, but no one is allowed to question Obama?
The COLB that was released was found to be a phony.
So, the Powers-behind-Obama know that any other attempts to produce another fake will be combed-over in a similar manner and any inconsistencies will stand-out like Central Florida cow hunters at a South Beach rave club.
Whats up with all the Birther Stories today?
Why does she have to choose one issue and not the other? Both are relevant. And plenty of other issues that Sarah is solid on.
I’m not sure. Maybe something’s in the wind...
I agree. I’ll await her economy op-ed.
She gave the right answer to what some would consider a “gotcha” question. Any other Republican would be stammering like Obama after the TelePrompter malfunctions.
I would rather be Governed by Sarah Palin than Ruled by the Kenyan Obama.
Oh Hell yes. This woman is unafraid to speak truth to power and demand the answers we do. I love her.
No comment, enjoy!
Does anybody really think the MSM is going to make a big splash over this issue?
I don’t think they will for two reasons. One, it will simply raise the issue again in the public eye, allowing for even more people to be exposed to the turth. And two: They too aren’t so sure about Obama’s qualifications anymore. Bringing this issue up again will be a no-win for the Left.
Bring it on!
Amazing how often my exact thoughts are expressed succinctly by Palin. Almost every time she speaks. On this issue, it is just that. A fair question. I have no idea either way, but it is certainly a valid issue, and he is going to great lengths to avoid dealing with it in court.
And while we’re at it, will he please show us his college transcripts?!
Sniff, sniff at post #18
The media will be deciding tonight - together with the Obama Admiistration - how to handle this.
They will either ignore it and hope it blows over as alotta nada. Or they will decide that’s too risky and come out guns a-blazin and try to paint her as a kook and/or try to get her to backtrack.
That’s total bullshit. They’ll release the originals on request. I’ve checked, as have dozens of others.
BTW, welcome, troll boy. You working out of the WH basement? Hope you don’t look like a young Larry Sinclair, or else you’ll be fending off Obama’s advances.
WOW this interview was AWESOME. I never heard of this interviewer but it was really well done. She never said that she believes that she believes that he was born in Kenya, she just said that she understands the concerns of others on this issue. Of course the media will be all over her, the media is on her ass when she pees. Who cares what the libtards think
Gotta new DNC member here for ya.
Has anybody noticed that, although all previous “Kenyan Birth Certificates” were gleefully (and convincingly) debunked within hours by lefty bloggers, there has been total silence about the last one—the one with the footprint?
I have seen no comment anywhere on this fact.
And how did Obama travel to Pakistan when Pakistan did not allow Americans into the country?
And how did Obama get a Fulbright Scholarship when those are not available to American citizens?
It's worth a million dollars to him of his own money to keep his records closed and sealed - he's hiding SOMETHING and our court system (and who else?) is enabling him to do so.
SP is a B-Ball player who knows how to give a hard foul and then raise your hand when the ref blows the whistle. I’m sure she’ll say something like she believes that he was born in HI if this story has legs. In the meatime, she got her cheap shot in. Good for her.
the eggs are being put all in one basket.
He won't disclose any of his school records and I'd also like to see what citizenship was listed on the passport when, as a teen, he went to "Pawk"istan - with three Muslim friends.
Can't the school records be obtained through the FOI act? WE certainly had Bush's and Gore's - and I can't believe Gore relinquished those voluntarily - they wee pretty bad...even flunked out of divinity school. (God must've had a hand in that!)
Awesome. Sarah rock on.
Screw you. You got a phone, you little maggot? Call em.
Where is the link to support your assertion that the referenced statements are “Not true”?
Please don’t play with the trolls.
Maybe the reason why they have not tried to debunk the birth certificate with the foot prints is, for those who are in the know, that it’s to close for comfort, and it’s best to keep quiet.
Smells like the WH is on full alert - sent out the minions.
You can report back to HQ now. You failed your mission.
“The problem is that nobody who is in the position to enforce this has been willing to do so, nor is that likely to change.”
Perhaps if Sarah ran in 2012 she’d use her position of standing to demand production of the secret document.
Just like how the Global Warming Scam is being exposed, so shall Obama be exposed.
'tis rank, is it not? Smell of newbie on a mission.
The other one is Michelle Bachmann.
As far as an op-ed on the economy? The Democrats and Obama want to destroy the economy. Nothing can be done until 2010 if their is a landslide wipeout of the Dems and the GOP removes the Kenyan or a court actually does their job and upholds the Constitution on eligibility.
|Isn't it immaterial anyhow? His alleged father's being a British subject makes him ineligible anyhow, IIRC.
Correct. You don't even need to discuss WHERE he was born or the validity of his birth certificate, per se.
It's where his father was born that matters the most:
Give it up.
We don't feed Trolls.
That being a death (politically for Zero) of a thousand cuts?
I don’t think this is her platform. It is simply a response to a question.
I never understood why Obamunist’s birth certificate was like garlic to a vampire. Just show the darned thing already! More points for Sarah!
