Skip to comments."Birther" Whispering Campaign Inside the Democrat Party?
Posted on 01/24/2010 4:52:57 PM PST by Hillary'sMoralVoid
It started out innocently in a conversation with a well-connected Democrat friend who is now-disillusioned Obama voter.
We were discussing the Massachusetts election, and I joked that I didnt know if the Democrats could stand another three years under Obama. He fired back that he and several of his friends didnt know if they could stand ONE more year under Obama.
I posited that the only way it could happen that fast is if you could get him out of office on something like an eligibility issue, and that I couldnt imagine any Democrat would ever become a birther!
There was a silence for a few moments and then he confided that one might surprised at what is being whispered about by disillusioned members at high levels in the party. He cut the conversation off at that point and we reverted back to small talk.
This all sounded so not credible to me, but you can never underestimate the Democrats desire to stay in power. The more I pondered his words, the more intriguing and perhaps terrifying the outcomes became.
Consider this scenario, the Democrats actually let birther investigations to go forward, publicly condemning the Republicans for pushing the issues, while quietly not impeding or even facilitating them . Two outcomes can happen. Obama is proven eligible and the Republicans are embarrassed and fall from public grace. Obama retains power and Democrats regain some public confidence.
Should Obama be removed from office, it becomes the ultimate opportunity to play the race card, because the still-conservative Supreme Court would have to conspire with the "racist" Republicans to force Obamas departure from office. Democrats could swear Obamas innocence, a repeat of the Lewinsky defense, in which Bill Clinton came out more powerful politically. The Democrats could raise the race issue with the Republicans until the end of recorded time for removing the first Black President from office.
At the precipice of their political comeback, the Republicans could fall hard! A Democrat "Rope a Dope"?
Admittedly this is a shameless self post, maybe Im reading more into this than was really there. If you disagree, flame away, pull the post, and tell me to take my meds and go to my room.
You could be onto something. My philosophy is that there is no standard below which a progressive will go to get their way.
Well, if any Demonrat was incentivized to be a birther it was the Clintons
HA...that could work..
They would just blame it on the birthers...
Anything is possible these days. Obama is making enemies LEFT and RIGHT. Any one side, or both, could knock him off his high horse.
The mind boggles at how much worse our leadership can get if 0bama is impeached.
Dreaming, that will happen when the public plan passes,
They are Birth-certificate-ers
Not so! Remember that Obama likely has plenty of dirt on Hillary and Bill. Think of it as the old Cold War nuclear “mutually assured destruction”.
Of course they would. I am willing to take a chance. The Dems and lib media would beat us up and the GOP. Go for it.
I really never understood why the Dem party especially moderates let this get this far. I was sure they would bite their tounge and vote for McCain.
I knew he would possibly destroy the USA and also the Dem party before the election. I saw this coming.
I respectfully disagree...NOTHING could be worse than Obama.
Actually, now that you mention it, there is an E-mail that my wife got last Friday (she said she was going to forward it to me) talking about a judge somewhere that was going to view the birth certificate issue. I don’t know if it is an old one or currant.
We have to produce our birth certificate to start school and to get a passport. Presidential candidate SHOULD have to do that.
Is removal will be bloody as in a race war that only Charlie Manson would love
Pelosi is the only one on that list that might concern me anywhere near as much as Obama and she doesn’t have the machine backing her.
Don’t forget, the entire Birther movement started with the dems.
“His “ sorry
IF the dems decide to rid themselves of the impostor...highly placed man in the senate a republican...says: The dems will be told...Obama is your and is your problem...they’ll not lift a hand to help.
To me it is not unthinkable that DemocRATS could push the “birther” issue. The USS Obama is sinking fast and Dems are jumping ship at an alarming rate. The longer Obama stays in office the greater the damage to the Dems. Wouldn’t it be more than ironic if it was the Dems that forced Obama out. I’m not holding my breath but it is a possibility.
There is nothing beneath the 'rats. They would definitely eat their own if necessary to cling to power.
