Skip to comments.Sean Hannity: 'Where's the birth certificate?'
Posted on 12/08/2009 8:41:30 PM PST by Irisshlass
WASHINGTON Sean Hannity today defended Sarah Palin's recent comments about Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility for the presidency and WND's pursuit of the story.
He said the question about his original, long-form birth certificate has still not been answered.
"What was so wrong in saying that, 'Can we see your birth certificate?' ... We were told early on that, in fact, somebody else had looked at it and confirmed that it was legitimate. So, I mean, what was wrong with people saying, 'Wait a minute. You know what? In light of the fact of where your, your father came from, et cetera, uh, let's just make sure that this is a legitimate birth certificate'? ... It was not asked by the mainstream media. It was asked by places like WorldNetDaily, who, I think, were just doing due diligence considering it's a constitutional mandate. ... I think a lot of people were just afraid to ask the question."

I love it!
More than a year late to the party...pal.
It looks like the talkers are starting to heat it up in time to put heat on the Healthcare and midterm elections.
In the mad, mad, mad world we are all residing in, Andrew Sullivan, whilst being interviewed by the equally vapid Joy Behar (how is this woman on TV and I am stuck in retail???) went into a FIFTEEN minute q and a about whether Trig ‘really is’ Sarah Palin’s son.
Now...if for grins and giggles...someone...anyone would ask either Behar or Sullivan about the Birth Certificate (you know that pesky Constitution rearing its head and all) they will go ape$hit that the question has no merit and YOU (for posing it) are RAAACIST.
Its like we are all Alice...down that Rabbit hole right now.
Even the Fox crew has been afraid to ask the question up until now.
But for whatever reason, they are starting to lose their fear, apparently.

‘What was so wrong in saying that, ‘Can we see your birth certificate?’”
Does anyone care that’s not what Palin said? No? Okay.
It may be what she’s thinking, but she was careful not to say it. And that sort of thing that ought to count with these little scandals.
But like Alice we get out..they don’t *grin*
This is not a unreasonable thing to ask for since being a "natural born citizen" of the US is a constitutional requirement for the job of President. It's not hateful, and it's not racist.
Proving that you are should be an honor.
Yet will not produce either. Why?
The longer it goes wityhout him doing this, the more insistent the demands for it will become. Obama cannot hide from proving his constitutional qualification once people in any numbers seriously doubt it.
BTW, under what conditions and with what financial aid did Obama attend college? ANd when he traveled to Pakistan while in college, under what conditions and what passport did he use to do so? Again, relatively simple things to put to rest...but they have not been put to rest. To the contrary, they've been covered up.
Reasonable people begin to wonder why.
I just heard Levin interview Hannity about the ‘birther’ issue. Of course they both danced around it and played it down. Hannity-—’I’ve always believed he was a citizen’
Passports would be good tooo.....was obama really an exchange student??
Both he and Rush Limbaugh.
Bottom line ... the bc doesn't matter ... BHO Sr. was a foreign born national ... a Kenyan & British subject attending university in the U.S on a student visa. His father was foreign born, in this country temporarily, and returned to Kenya after his studies. BHO Jr. doesn't qualify to be POTUS ... period.
Hannity isn’t going to take any position that risks his Golden Goose. He wants to be “accepted” as “legitimate”. Why do you think he has Al Charlatan on his program? He knows Al’s a fraud and an accessory to murder, but all the “cool kids” have him on TV and Sean wants to fit in.
By muzzling their talk show hosts, Fox and Clear Channel have **seriously** damaged their reputation for reliability. Personally, I will **NEVER** trust them again. In fact, I now believe they are be paid to be the “controlled opposition.
It really is in their best interest of Fox and Clear Channel to take a stand **NOW*** ( while there is still some time and hope) and report on Obama’s natural born status **NOW**!!!!
The CEO’s of Fox and Clear Channel must remember:
**The fascist oligarchy will take away their license to broadcast anyway.
**The fascist oligarchy will steal their money anyway.
**The fascist oligarchy will blackmail them anyway.
**The fascist Oligarchy will carry out their threats against their family and them anyway.
I agree. Not a NBC, period. I just want to see the birth certificate to determine whether he’s an illegal alien ;)
But I’m glad this is in the news everyday. Someone will get him. People are not letting this go.
Given the fact that Sarah Palin was subjected to an avalanche of Soros- and MSM-backed investigators who went to Alaska and combed over every document and shred of paper, interviewed everyone who ever met her or knew her or knew OF her....
Well, Sarah Palin has particular and unique standing to question why Obamsky’s birth certificate (and if she wanted to other records of his past such as college transcripts, his thesis-)isn’t equally subjected to such scrutiny. “Why me and not him?” she might rightfully ask.
Palin’s standing in the matter, and her willingness to broach it publicly, opens it up to others like Sean Hannity to now take it on as a legitimate issue.
This is how it works sometime. Groups like the Swiftboat Vets or WND press and press and press and eventually someone of a more mainstream stature takes up the cause, or a record pops open, and the story can then be reported by others because it is sanctified elsewhere.
That’s how it works. Palin made this fair game for many others who have been holding back. She did the exact right thing and good things will follow from it. Conservatives don’t have to bash Hannity for being “late” to the discussion. He’s led plenty of discussions and been the very first source for much about Ayers and Wright.
This is a good thing that happened.
The only question that any responsible journalist should be asking is what is Obamao hiding. What is he hiding?
Wonders never cease. Especially lately.
What took ya so long, Sean?
Now if we can just get everyone else at Fox onboard.....
Rush, Levin, Hannity and all ‘conservative’ radio talkshow hosts have to eat don’t they? They are no different from politicians.
I stopped listening to talk radio in August 2008 when I knew that Obama was going to win the election. I don’t want to be reminded every day that my country is going to hell in a handbasket. I know it without them telling me.
Exactly my question.
Re b-cert, I reserve judgment.
My issue is this.
Mister Obama has an historic opportunity to embarrass his political opponents (enemies, I suspect, from his perspective).
All he needs to do is release the b.c. and order that it be given a thorough forensic analysis by fed law enforcement, with the results published immediately. He could erase doubt by having several labs from various agencies have a go at the document.
His approvals would regain some lost ground, n'est ce pas?
And the "birthers" would be marginalized
So, why the decision to hide and conceal?
See Quix? I'm always correct! Electric Graffiti is obviously a brilliant person and earns my vote for FReeper of the year 2009!
But they will try to take all the credit if 0 ever gets kicked out.
Exactly......Rusty Humphries is the only talk show host who has been driving this issue. He’s the one that asked Palin about Ogabe’s birth certificate and got all the ‘back benchers’ off the couch.....for a few minutes anyways.
That he backs terrorism and the overthrow of the United States.
I truly believe he is part of a conspiracy to destroy this country by economic and terrorist means.
(tin foil hat on)
Woods doing roids,Pete Townshend a perv, Yuri Bezmenov.....I don’t think I’ve read a post of yours I disagree with. Well done sir. ;)
Better late than never.
Yuri Bezmenov should be a monthly thread here, he told us about the only “conspiracy” that is actually a conspiracy. I’m also in the hard line Oswald killed Kennedy alone camp. I hope that doesn’t ruin my perfect track record with you, lol.
WOW! Thanks for the ping Lucy!
The cat is definitely out of the bag now.
Sean Hannity: ‘Where’s the birth certificate?’
Hopefully FOX will pick this up and run with it...
They both said they looked into it, but the clincher was that they left it as an open ended question.
I heard it live too. Things are bubbling in the back ground.
I am waiting for Levin to mention the 2 million bucks Obama spent in defending cases designed to reveal his original COLB.
Sarah Palin cracked the Obama COLB gourd. Its leaking like a sieve.
Well, the bottom line question as I’ve come to understand it is: what is a ‘natural born citizen?’ That goes beyond: is Obama a citizen and/or where was he born?
Obama has admitted freely that his father was a Kenyan citizen. If ‘natural born’ as understood by the Founders meant, as many believe, that a child is born of two US citizens, or if ‘natural born’ means the child’s father is a US citizen owing no allegiance to any other country at the time of birth, Obama’s being born in HI (or not) becomes irrelevant. He is, by that definition, not ‘natural born,’ and therefore not eligible to hold the office of president.
Agreed in spades!
He can be a citizen, but not a ‘natural born citizen.’
Citizen hasn't been the question Sean, but nice try.
His researchers could have done better, that’s for sure.
I blame Obama for this bc mess. He could show it and shut this whole mess down, he doesn’t. Why?
It is not the people asking that are at fault, it is Obama himself that is to blame, period.
I’ve got mine!
Hmmm... I guess Sarah has now made it safe for the right wing talkers to come out into the open on Obama’s bc, eh?
How very courageous.
Better late, than never I guess.
Bingo ! Assuming his father really was Obama Sr.
