Breaking!! Obama at prayer breakfast says can question his policies, but not his citizenship.
politico ^ | 2/4/2010 | p

Posted on 02/04/2010 6:43:03 AM PST by milwguy

Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast, President appeals for a return to "civility" in politics. "You can question my policies without questioning my faith -- or for that fact, my citizenship," he says, a reference to those who insist Obama wasn't born in Hawaii.

I question his faith as well. I just can’t believe he is a true believer in Jesus Christ with all the anti-Christ leanings he has.

Sorry, zero, you leave many unanswered questions.

You nailed it. This is meant to demonize the opposition and it falls in line with the Menendez strategy of how to marginalize the Tea Party movement. The message is that the birthers and deniers are right wing crazies.

Civility begins at the top. Of course, when you have a TOTUS that is an immature brat there will never be civility. He always talks about how he wants us all to get along and in the next breath insults the Right. Every day. Non-stop. He thinks we’re stupid. He thinks the majority of Americans believe everything he says simply because he says it. He need to GO, NOW!

Watching this idiot speak now at the National Prayer Breakfast. He referred to a “Navy corpsman” not once, but TWICE, as “CORPSE-man”. I’m not kidding.

Obama manages to make the prayer breakfast ALL ABOUT HIM. Here is President Bush's last prayer breakfast speech, compare and contrast:

"It is fitting that we gather in prayer, because we recognize a prayerful nation is a stronger nation. (Applause.)

"Every President since Dwight Eisenhower has attended the National Prayer Breakfast, and I am really proud to carry on that tradition. It’s an important tradition, and I’m confident Presidents who follow me will do the same. The people in this room come from many different walks of faith. Yet we share one clear conviction: We believe that the Almighty hears our prayers, and answers those who seek Him. That’s what we believe; otherwise, why come? Through the miracle of prayer, we believe He listens—if we listen to His voice and seek…His presence in our lives—our hearts will change. And in so doing, in seeking God, we grow in ways that we could never imagine.

"In prayer, we grow in gratitude and thanksgiving. When we spend time with the Almighty, we realize how much He has bestowed upon us, and our hearts are filled with joy. We give thanks for our families, we give thanks for the parents who raised us, we give thanks for the patient souls who married us, and the children who make us proud each day. We give thanks for our liberty, and the universal desire for freedom that He has written into every human heart. We give thanks for the God who made us in His image, and redeemed us in His love.

"In prayer, we grow in meekness and humility. By approaching our Maker on bended knee, we acknowledge our complete dependence on Him. We recognize that we have nothing to offer God that He does not already have, except our love. So we offer Him that love, and ask for the grace to discern His will. We ask Him to remain near to us at all times. We ask Him to help us lead lives that are pleasing to Him. We discover that by surrendering our lives to the Almighty, we are strengthened, refreshed, and ready for all that may come.

"In prayer, we also grow in boldness and courage. The more time we spend with God, the more we see that He is not a distant king, but a loving Father. Inspired by this confidence, we approach Him with bold requests: We ask Him to heal the sick, and comfort the dying, and sustain those who care for them. We ask Him to bring solace to the victims of tragedy, and help to those suffering from addiction and adversity. We ask him to strengthen our families, and to protect the innocent and vulnerable in our country. We ask Him to protect our nation from those who wish us harm, and watch over all who stepped forward to defend us. We ask Him to bring about the day when His peace shall reign across the world, and every tear shall be wiped away.

"In prayer, we grow in mercy and compassion. We are reminded in prayer that we are all fallen creatures in need of mercy. And in seeking God’s mercy, we grow in mercy ourselves. Experiencing the presence of God transforms our hearts, and the more we seek His presence, the more we feel the tug at our souls to reach out to the poor, and the hungry, the elderly, and the infirm. When we answer God’s call to love a neighbor as ourselves, we enter into a deeper friendship with our fellow man, and a deeper relationship with our eternal Father.

"I believe in the power of prayer, because I have felt it in my own life. Prayer has strengthened me in times of personal challenge. It has helped me meet the challenges of the presidency. I understand now, clearly, the story of the calm in the rough seas. And so at this final prayer breakfast as your President, I thank you for your prayers, and I thank our people all across America for their prayers. And I ask you not to stop in the year ahead. We have so much work to do for our country, and with the help of the Almighty, we will build a freer world, and a safer, more hopeful, more noble America.

"God bless." (Applause.)

Biden would be president instead if Obama was tossed out.

Seems to me he would be impeachable as an accomplice.

From what I hear his big problem is the transition back to the USA from Indonesia. When he was Barry Sotero an Indonesian citizen where he could not have been an American at the same time. He would have to have been an immigrant from Indonesia and not eligible due to the laws.

!!What the H_LL does he mean by “questioning his faith”?!!... “Uh, gee mr. president, I question your faith”... Is he saying that people question whether he is muslim or christian or nothing but an egoist narcissistic boob? A real man, I said, A REAL MAN, has no need to know or care whether someone else thinks such things or not.

“Progress, Obama says, is stunted when “we demonize opponents,””

We should get a clip of all the things the Democrats and the MSM have said about “Teabaggers”, conservatives etc and play it against this clip. Schumer called Scott Brown “an extreme right wing teabagger” Olberman and the other MSNBC slimeballs said even worse about Scott Brown. These people need to be exposed for the hypocrats they are. Over and over again.
As to the Birth Certificate, it is despicable for Obama to use prayer breakfast to attack people who merely have asked him to show that he meets the requirements for the office he holds.

And it’s not just a sin of omission - not just that he’s not showing his original birth certificate. He and the bureaucrats in Hawaii have taken decisive steps (committing crimes) to present false evidence and to hide the rules which expose their actions. See http://butterdezillion.wordpress.com/2010/01/11/red-flags-in-hawaii-2/ This isn’t just that he wants to have privacy. You don’t have to forge documents and hide administrative rules in order to claim you want privacy.

Years from now, after he's left office, after the statute of limitations has run out, he'll write a tell all book about how he got away with it and how easy it was for a sweet sounding shyster of foreign origins to mesmerize the democrat party operatives, circumvent the constitution, hoodwink the American electorate, make buffoons of his right leaning critics, emasculate the body of Congress, silence the judicial branch and usurp the power of the oval office without being asked even so much as produce evidence he was ever a natural born citizen. Can't you see him with the round-table panel on This Week w/Georgie Stephanopolis laughing hysterically about the whole ruse?

I think the whole citizenship thing is a hoot. I have for the 5th time in 19 years had to prove I was a US citizen(I was born aboard) for my brother's security clearance investigations. Yet, his ultimate boss, the Commander in Chief, hasn't had to do establish his citizenship once, even though he was fathered by a foreign national and used scholarships for foreign nationals. It really is not that hard to prove citizenship if you are actually a citizen. I wonder what would happen if my brother told the security clearance investigators that they were crazy birthers for questioning my citizenship...I mean at least in our case it has been proven 4 times previously and not with the COLB from the 57...errr I mean 50th state.

No, that probably wouldn't end it. The constitutional requirement is that the president be a natural born citizen. The definition used in a dozen supreme court cases as well as preparatory to the fourteenth amendment, and stated by Marshall, Story, Waite, Jay, Kent,... is from Vattel’s Law of Nations, the textbook used by Thomas Jefferson when he created the course on Natural Law and The Law of Nations in 1779 at William and Mary “Born in the country of parents who are its citizens.” Obama was born a subject of the British Commonwealth. His father was never, and never intended to be a U.S. citizen. Obama is not a constitutional president and he knows it - but doesn't respect The Constitution. He is counting on our ignorance.

No one doubts you are a citizen Barry, you were just a citizen of America, Great Britain, and Kenya at the instant of your birth, a citizen of THREE nations. You aren’t a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN of ANY of them. To be a Natural Born citizen of ANY Nation, you can ONLY hold ONE citizenship at the instant of your birth.

ONE. Thats it.

Barry, you held a minimum of two, American and British, possibly three with Kenyan. You are NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN of ANY of these countries! You are an USURPER.

This man should be in PRISON.

I suspect the reason there are no available school records is that he registered as a foreign student. That would explain a lot. It would indicate either he is not elegible or he commited fraud.

I’m pretty sure Biden would be acting president until a new president could be voted on by the people (from everything I’ve read on the subject anyhow). Biden wouldn’t necessarily be the president by default and ride out a term he got elected into if the president himself was found to not be eligible and was removed from office. The ticket Biden got elected on would be tainted because of it and the selection as vice president on an invalid ticket would therefore be invalidated.

That’s my understanding.

If you have other verifiable/credible information to the contrary, please share it.

When the Hawaii Deputy AG refuses to confirm Fukino’s statement of Obama’s eligibility, you know there is big trouble brewing for Obama.

The question for the rest of us is how this thing can break open. The folks in Hawaii have been trying to hold off this storm for a long time - breaking laws to do so - but their actions have now been documented to the point that if we had so much as one law enforcement body which was willing to investigate, the dam would surely burst open.

How do we get one law enforcement body to do their job?

Some reporter asked the “Nagamine” the Hawaii attorney General:

In an attempt to corroborate the contents of Dr. Fukino’s statement and understand better the value of that testimony, I put the following two questions to Nagamine, as a member of the press.
I am seeking some information in response to 2 questions I have. Please understand that your response(s) or non-response will be quoted by our paper.
Q. 1: Does the Director of the Hawaii Department of Health have any statutory duty or authority to define the citizenship status of anyone whose vital record(s) are kept by that department?
Q.2: According to the legal references employed by your office, what is the definition of a “natural-born citizen” of the United States of America?
I put my question to the Deputy Attorney General to avoid putting the Attorney General in a situation of a conflict of interest, if he in fact, did, as Dr. Fukino claims, advise her regarding her July statement.
Nagamine, in response, asserted that any answer to such questions given by her office would represent a conflict of interest for her office. And that is an explicit admission that Dr. Fukino had no statutory authority nor duty to make such a statement, and that the Attorney General’s office will not stand behind Fukino’s claim that Obama is a “natural-born American citizen.” It is such, because if Fukino’s declaration had legal weight of any kind, surely a response to my questions would have corroborated that without such a conflict-of-interest scenario. You only have a conflict if the Fukino claim would not be supported by a Nagamine response.
