Obama's Mother "very single when she had him"-Michelle Obama 7-10-08
Show Me Progress ^ | 7-11-08 | Michael Bersin

Posted on 01/16/2010 7:49:00 PM PST by icwhatudo

The democrats have sprung a last minute "gotcha" video of Scott Brown saying he wasn't sure if Obama's mother was married at the time of his birth.

This transcript shows Michelle Obama saying: "Barack saw his mother, who was very young and very single when she had him, and he saw her work hard to complete her education and try to raise he and his sister."

This took place at a speech at the July 10th 2008 round table discussion at Pierson Auditorium on the campus of the University of Missouri - Kansas City.

This is about all the dems have and they are trying to make this thing go "viral". Please counter with your own postings of this link of Michelle confirming Browns doubts.

Personally, I don’t think much of anything will make him lose.

I don’t see why what he said is such a big deal. He just said he didn’t know whether she was single. Why is that a problem?

Here's how this will play out.

As you can see from the links I posted here a few minutes ago, this is part of a stump speech that Michelle Obama had been giving.

In 2007, the version of that line was: "He saw his mother, a very young, very single-parent trying to finish her education and raise two children across two continents."

Democrats will say that Michelle mis-spoke when she said "when she had him." If they go that route, then they cannot then blame Brown for believing what he read about the 2008 Kansas City Roundtable comments.

If they acknowledge the comments, then Brown was just repeating what Michelle Obama said.

Please tell me she didn't say this! What an embarrassment! Where did she go to school?

This also was taken completely out of context again. He was answering a remark the Dem’s made about Bristol Palin being pregnant. They left that part out.

LAME AND DESPERATE. WHO’S RUNNING? COAKLEY OR OBAMA’S MOMMY OR EVEN OBAMA?

The democrats have sprung a last minute “gotcha” video of Scott Brown saying he wasn’t sure if Obama’s mother was married at the time of his birth.

This transcript shows Michelle Obama saying: “Barack saw his mother, who was very young and very single when she had him, and he saw her work hard to complete her education and try to raise he and his sister.”

If anything, Scott was being kind. Since we haven’t seen the long form we really don’t know who his mother even is, let alone his father or place of birth, date of birth, ect, ect,....

I'm wondering how long it will be now before Coakley tries to discredit Michelle by calling her a Yankee fan. :)

Let’s see now.

Obama promised 8% unemployment. He lied.
Obama promised no taxes on the middle class and just signed 70 new taxes on small business which is the middle class. He lied.
Obama promised you could keep your health insurance as long as you want. He lied.
Obama told us we had hit bottom in the economy. He lied.
Obama promised transparency. He lied.
Obama promised a lot of things and lied about them all.

Now you expect us to get all hot and bothered about a statement Brown may or may not have made about his mother being single while she had Obama. What difference does this make? Who really cares? And who knows for sure if the press is reporting it properly?

This is so trivial that it won’t even make any difference. If this is all they have, may as well certify the election for Brown now.

Please.

80% of black kids are born “out of wedlock” (to use the familiar old phrase), so this is supposed to make him unqualified how?

I can’t believe this is the best they can dredge up.

Weird.

Virgin Birth?? /sarc>

No, I'm not slamming his mom...I questioning his divine status (Obama blasphemy) which might be worse in some people's eyes.

Cheers!

Because if it's true, then it means the Birth Certificate that Obama released to the public is a forgery.

Why would they expect Brown to care? Brown was honest about being foggy about the matter.

Yes I was thinking of this earlier. So the dems put up an ad where they make a big deal out of something Brown might’ve said which is the exact same thing Michelle Obama said on the campaign trail and then they will expect the black population to turn out and vote for them?

What they 'heard' was that Scott Brown said Obama was a lying bastard. (Which would be completely true if what Michelle said is true).

And since most of them are probably completely aware it is true, they are overreacting to his actual words. Those having something to hide always do.

OMG! Is this the big bomb the rats have against Scott? ROTFLOL!

While the discussion was supposedly about Sarah being the best VP choice, the conversation turned to Sarah and her daughter Bristol being maligned by the host for having poor family values and having corrupted morals, though after she mentioned it she said "I am not saying the Palin family has corrupted morals."  So why even bring it up?  Scott proceeded to defend Sarah and her family from such attacks, saying the father will be there to help out, and at one point he compared the situation to Obama's young mother being 18 years old when she gave birth to him, to which the host interrupted by saying "and married" and Scott smiled and said, "well, I don't know about that."

This is nothing but BS. Michelle has talked about Obama being born from a young single mother, so if they want to make fools of themselves, let them.

This sounds like a damned if he did, damned if he didn’t scenario. Either Brown would care too little about “birther” issues to pay attention to them, or he cares too much.

Why wasn’t there a big brouhaha over Michelle’s “misstatement” anyhow?

IIRC, Obama's whole Birth Certificate story is based on his mother being married at the time of his birth.

So, if they weren't, he's a liar, and a bastard.

He still might be an Natural Born Citizen. But it would mean he purposely deceived the American Public.

It doesn't mean he's unqualified (NBC-wise). But it means he lied about the whole thing. Hid the truth from the public.
