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."

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.
