Sean Hannity: 'Where's the birth certificate?'
WorldNet aily ^ | December 8, 2009 | WND

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."

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.

I posted this before but I think it a way to kill two birds with one stone....

I want to make a formal proposal of a challenge to the left

A birth certificates duel...

The Left can ask for

Sara to make public Trigs vault copy birth certificates showing her as the mother

And the Right can ask for

Obama to make public his vault copy birth certificates showing he was born in Hawaii

And then let see who is forthcoming and who spends big buck fighting in court releasing it

Rush said things regarding the lack of a birth certificate months ago.Remember “What do Jesus and bho have in common?”Neither have a birth certificate.

“Bingo ! Assuming his father really was Obama Sr.”

DNA testing of Barack Obama and one or more of alleged half-brothers of the same father would settle that question easily. Y-DNA is inherited from one’s father and all sons of the same father have pretty much the same Y-DNA as their father, with only very minor mutations occasionally. I can’t imagine that the “brothers” would object.

His approvals would regain some lost ground, n'est ce pas?

A lot of independents would breath of sigh of relief and some Republicans as well. Obama could retool and gain some traction. He's getting stuck in a rut and ensuring his party's defeat in 2010.

In fact, revealing the long form right after the election would have been a deadly blow to Republicans. He would’ve been unstoppable.

Next up—Rush?

Rush already has dropped a couple of hints and comments at times. He made a comment yesterday about all documents being hidden from us.

Hannity-—’I’ve always believed he was a citizen’

But neither said "Natural Born Citizen" and you know Levin knows the difference.

I stopped listening to talk radio in August 2008 when I knew that Obama was going to win the election.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I stopped listening when all the so-called conservative yappers failed to report on Obama’s eligibility. Now I download travel and business podcasts onto my Ipod.

I think if I hear that term “radical leftist” on more time I will hurl! They're Marxists, fascists, and communists. It is time to call them what they are.

Although I will occasionally listen to Rush's archives when I'm doing something around the house, like painting a room.

Interesting to see new "faces" here!

As I said many times before, all the media talking heads are a disgrace by caving in to be silence by threats to lose their gigs!!

Now suddenly when high rollers like Palin and 10 (brave?) Congressmen want to see the BC, and Chrysler dealers are lawyering up to sue in D.C., then first Levin and now Hannity, and probably the rest of the media weasels in lockstep too, want to jump on OUR bandwagon, hello!!!

Read post # 35 ......... Thank God for baby Trig


“Voters have every right to ask candidates for information if they so choose. I’ve pointed out that it was seemingly fair game during the 2008 election for many on the left to badger my doctor and lawyer for proof that Trig is in fact my child. Conspiracy-minded reporters and voters had a right to ask... which they have repeatedly. But at no point – not during the campaign, and not during recent interviews – have I asked the president to produce his birth certificate or suggested that he was not born in the United States.”

- Sarah Palin

It’s just a very good way of asking, “I have produced records, why hasn’t Obama?” It is a way that passes the follow-on grunt work to people like Hannity and others who are able to do such work.

Basically, there are TWO birth certificate arguments going on at once. One is the “birther” matter and cannot be won by either side unless the birth certificate is either produced or declared non-existent.

The other is Obama’s UNWILLINGNESS to produce the birth certificate (like his thesis and college grades). We are WINNING that argument BIGTIME and will KEEP winning it as long as he doesn’t produce any of this stuff.

And he is NOT going to produce ANY of it. EVER.

Which means, there is a way to JUST KEEP WINNING.

Focus entirely on his UNWILLINGNESS TO PRODUCE and let others speculate on why. A legitimate cnadidate for president such as Sarah Palin can’t afford to speculate.

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'?

And even if it were a legitimate U.S. birth certificate, because of his (putative) father's nationality at the time of his birth, Obama would not be a natural born citizen.

Someone needs to give Fox execs and all business leaders this Winston Churchill quote;

If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

Of course, you could say that Sean didn't really raise this issue. That left-wing interviewer raised it, and Sarah replied that she didn't need to ask about the birth certificate because the PEOPLE were already asking about it--and had a perfect right to ask about it.

But that raises the point I remember making last fall. Sean doesn't need to raise this issue personally. Rush doesn't need to raise it personally. All they have to do is mention that OTHER PEOPLE are raising it, and that it is an interesting news item.

Why not? Why have they failed to do that? If Obama prevails, they're going to get whacked with some version of the Fairness Doctrine anyway. So, we've got to see to it that Obama doesn't prevail. And one important way to undermine his ability to ram through legislation is to raise legitimate questions about his legitimacy.

He is a corrupt liar, who is not eligible to be President. There. I've said it. Now, Obama, prove us wrong. Millions of Americans think you are a fake. Show us your birth certificate.

"Sean Hannity: 'Where's the birth certificate?'"

Excellent! Now, if he would continue to raise the issue...instead of a mere mention like he's done in the past.

The media needs to drive this story so that it will go mainstream beyond the blogosphere and message boards to which this issue has been (largely) relegated to.

The one who could bring this to the main stream after what Sarah Palin has commented on this is Glenn Beck.
Have Glenn Beck do 3 or 4 day expose on this.
If Glenn was afraid to look like a " Kook Fringe " well, Sarah Palin has already made it a legitimate issue to question Obama's records, or the lack of them.

You and I pretty much always agree wintertime but on this one, although I am a rabid birther, I KNOW that Murdock has been threatened with having FOX’s licence pulled. That is likely the ONLY thing that is preventing any of this from being “news”. Obama, the fraudulent tyrant that he is, has “his people” like the FCC who can and will pull any broadcasting licence if they cross them. This ALONE should wake America up. CO
