Skip to comments.The last stand of the 'birther queen'?
Posted on 06/09/2010 1:57:17 PM PDT by markomalley
Politico.com raised a stink Tuesday over the possibility that "birther queen" Orly Taitz may win the GOP primary for secretary of state and put California Republicans in the embarrassing position of having a thoroughly discredited conspiracy theorist on their November ticket. The piece contained little evidence (perhaps because there isn't much) but leaned almost exclusively of the kind of why-not speculation popular in American punditry. Here's an excerpt:

Like it or not, she may very well win. I say great news.
The last stand of the ‘birther queen’?
Nope! Orly will fight on. Good for her!
I believe Orly will have the last laugh one of these days . . .
I don’t know why the LAT is posting this, when Dunne won the GOP nomination. I saw him speak at the Conservative Forum in Mountain View a little over a week ago - a VERY impressive, pro-business young man.
Remember, I can only post an excerpt (FR posting rules). They said she lost at the bottom of the page (after taking ample opportunity for a dig)
Hmmm. Seems to me that with 74.3 percent of the vote going to Damon Dunn and 25.7 percent to Orly Taitz, I’d suggest that this article of full of chit (perhaps someone should actually check the election results before putting pen to paper and making themselves look really really stupid). Or, perhaps Paul Thornton is use to looking stupid!!!
Or lose by fifty percentage points.
Citing HuffoPo? - Oh pleeeease. The LA Times among conservative are the ones who are thoroughly discredited.
LOLOL!!! The name “Birther Queen” is pretty funny! Someone should come up with a really cool drawing to go with the name.
Too bad Orly lost the primary. If there were a completely appropriate place for a Birther candidate, it would be California’s Secretary of State. That office is responsible for running honest elections of properly-vetted candidates. There is certainly no issue concerning Obama’s long-form birth certificate, school records, voting records, and other details of his past history that have been “thoroughly discredited,” no matter how many times the MSM repeat the lie.
Seeing as how the initial point of this idiots article is the one people will long remember, it matters not that he points out her loss at the close to his diatribe.
Orly was outspent 20-1. Her lawsuit is still going to have dunn done.
Not needed. Just insert photo of Octo-Mom - the true “birther” queen.
It could be because Orly ( without any backing and almost no money) won more than 25% of the vote or about 379,000 votes. (This was reported by another Freeper. I haven't seen a reputable source for these numbers. )
Personally,( if true), I find that **amazing** that she would get that many votes. It means that about 379,000 people in California are totally ticked at how Obama's eligibility has been handled. It could be more, since some birthers many have voted for her opponent for other reasons than the birhter issue. This is definitely a **significant** number!
There is NO possible way that Obama's natural born status can be painted as being "fringe".
She lost (by a very large margin).
Just because obama has shelled out mucho denaro to hide the birth certificate and others refuse to even look into this matter doesn't mean it has been "thoroughly discredited".
Damon Dunn - 1,075,337 votes (74.3%)
Orly Taitz - 372,490 votes (25.7%).
I don't consider 372,490 votes (25.7%) to be “fringe”. The Dems will not be able to tip toe past Obama’s eligibility in November.
The judicial system has become very flawed to even imagine that citizens have no standing for these sort of lawsuits. We are supposedly founded on the Principle of "Redress of Grievances", and that was a cornerstone issue that led to the Revolutionary War.
Well, I am not sure if they mean her or the theory itself but littly bammy spending about two million bucks (so far) hiding the real BC makes me believe I will not learn much by clicking on the link.
Orly may have been born in Russia , but she still has that American fighting spirit. Go for it Orly “ NO surrender No retreat”
I don’t consider 372,490 votes (25.7%) to be fringe. The Dems will not be able to tip toe past Obamas eligibility in November.
So?....What is the percent of voters that vote in any primary election? In my state it is often less than 10%.
What those 372,490 votes mean is that there are a **lot** of people who did not choose to vote who feel the same.
I wonder how many of those votes came from Democrats seeking to discredit the GOP.
While Taitz was handily beaten, 25% is not what I would call “fringe” either. I’m not sure how that will impact the November election with respects to Obozo, though. He’s not on the ballot.
I agree. It isn't “fringe”.
25% is significant and the Democrats would be foolish to dismiss Obama’s eligibility as an issue. Likely there were many who voted for Orly's opponent(s) who have questions about Obama’s natural born status but voted against Orly for reasons utterly unrelated to Obama’s eligibility.
Michelle Obama is a birther queen?
I’m still unclear on how that impacts the 2010 election. I have little hope that the birth certificate issue is going to make any difference. However, the WH’s attempts to buy off politicians in order to get them to drop out of races? That might have some teeth. In order to take that where it needs to go, though, we need a major GOP victory in the house and senate in November.
