President Obama's Passport Shown on YouTube
YouTube ^ | Aug 13, 2010

Posted on 08/16/2010 7:09:21 AM PDT by LorenC

Last week on the White House's YouTube channel, they answered a question from the mailbag and showed this:

Date of Birth: 04 Aug 1961
Place of Birth: Hawaii, U.S.A.

So what do you expect the conspiratorial response to this will be? That it's a fake passport? That the U.S. Passport office is in on the conspiracy? That YouTube videos aren't admissible in court, and thus this should simply be ignored and not acknowledged as evidence at all? That there's not an uninterrupted shot of the trip advisor unlocking the safe, taking out the folder, and pulling out and opening the passport, and thus they aren't convinced that the passport seen was actually in the folder?

Or maybe just a mix of all of the above, plus whatever other special pleading they can think of.

That document is obviously less than 5 years old. Look at his picture.

Let's see the one he used when he traveled to Pok-ee-ston.

Every single Puerto Rican born in Puerto Rico is mandated to apply for a new Birth Certificate, because, surprise, surprise
they were involved in 40% of the fraudulent Passports issued,

He got a fraudulent passport as easily as other illegal aliens get them, along with other documents., with a fraudulent Birth Certificate.

Obviously. You didn't watch the video, did you? Because they explicitly state that this is his Presidential passport, issued last year.

I believe the Obama admin uses the birther issue to keep conservatives away from issues which would sway swing voters. He purposely seems to stir it up every once in a while. But what do you suppose this passport demonstrates?

I have one question though.....under

Nationality it says

United States of America

Is that right? I don’t have a Passport so I’m not sure what is supposed to be there but if anyone has one can they confirm that this is correct.

It's a "Diplomatic" Passport. It is not issued under the same rules and regulations as one for us commoners. Let's see his canceled/expired passports before the government issued him diplomatic passports. (He probably had one issued to him as a senator too.) I have all my old passports in a drawer here right along with a certified copy of my birth certificate.

He's got a passport? Why, that must mean he's an American citizen!

Here's the thing. We all knew that.

I'm not American, and even I know that it takes more to become President than just American citizenship. Possession of a passport is not enough. You need to be a natural born citizen.

Where is his long-form B/C?

And what has he just tacitly admitted by displaying this strawman passport?

I do not care one hoot what the passport says.

The comments and actions of Stroker tell me, beyond any doubt that he is NOT one of us.

He may “claim” to be an American, but I do not buy it any more than I believe in the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy.

Loren, Wasn’t the baby daddy a British national?

It’s not about being born in the US it’s about having two parents that were born here

Indeed, his daddy was a British national. This has been a well-known fact at least since his book was published in the 1990s. He mentioned it at the start of his 2004 speech at the Democratic National Convention. No one was ignorant of his Kenyan daddy.

And yet, curiously, even though the fact itself was well-known, and even though the Presidential campaign started in early 2007, no one suggested that the mere fact of having a Kenyan daddy made him ineligible until November 2008.

It's almost as if right as he was elected, people suddenly discovered a novel way to say he was always ineligible, but they'd simply never noticed before. How very odd...

If you are a federal employee who may have to travel for official business, you are issued a US gov’t controlled passport. In my husband’s case, he has no access to it unless he has to use it for work.

A President can obviously get a new passport, with or without a valid birth certificate. The document is new, just like his Hawaiian birth certificate.

So after months and months of appeals and refiling by birther lawyers, Obama has a very small legal bill from the lawyers representing him????? Do you have the names of the law firms representing the POTUS at such nice low fees?? Gov Palin legal fees hit 500,000+ just from ethics complaints, and you are saying Obama is hardly spending money on legal fees??? Either way, for 15 bucks he could have avoided the cost of litigation.

Your comment, “And yet, curiously, even though the fact itself was well-known, and even though the Presidential campaign started in early 2007, no one suggested that the mere fact of having a Kenyan daddy made him ineligible until November 2008.” is factually incorrect. Many people raised the issue before November 2008.

World Net Daily asked in June 2008. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=66787

Your implication that no one cared until after the election is insulting and does a great disservice to the people who were trying to warn the American people about Obama not being eligible.

It is to Obama’s advantage to get the “Birthers” in a heightened state of agitation just prior to the election. Most independents and Dems associate this issue with weirdos and crackpots. It scares them off from voting Republican and aligning themselves with such a fringe. You’re being played like a fiddle.

While the whole birth certificate issue is a distraction, in my opinion, this video is hardly a rebuttal.

If you want a US passport you need is a certificate of live birth, a social security card and/or a state or federal-issued photo ID.

Since the birth certificate enthusiasts specifically do not recognize the White House-proffered Hawaii COLB as legitimate, why would they accept another document premised upon the same COLB?

Moreover, naturalized US citizens who were born in foreign countries also hold US passports. A passport is therefore far less compelling than the original COLB that was a source of controversy in the first place.

IRON CLAD EVIDENCE!

No one could possibly conceive that the President of the United States Would have the clout necessary to have a fake passport issued!

That would be impossible.

Oh, I know you’ve heard the rumors that illegal aliens sometimes are able to fake ID, but there is no human that possesses the cunning and the master-criminal mind necessary for Obama to have a fake passport made up.

It’s impossible. The Leftist have won again with their dazzling logic.

No, read that article carefully. Nowhere in it does WND claim that Obama would be ineligible solely because he had a Kenyan father. Nowhere in it does WND claim that even if he was born in Hawaii, his father's citizenship would make him ineligible. Rather, the only thing WND says is that if he was born outside the US, then his father's citizenship might come into play.

I have always thought that he is hiding embarrassing info, not necessarily info that would make his presidency illegal. Bottom line....his parents were not married, that Kenyan was NOT the daddy, but the old commie Frank was...His college records: He applied for aid as a citizen of Indonesia, etc. Embarrassing crap that would have dulled the halo the media polished daily during the run up to his being anointed.

my spouse who was born to US parents about the same time as obama, abroad in Canada obtained a social security card when he was young. In those days documents were issued without proof of birth. But few years back when he lost his card and wanted a new one, he was asked for his birth certificate, which and they would not give him a new card because his birth certificate said he was born in Canada, we were told that social security changed their requirements since he was born, and just becuase he had an old card, a drivers license and had voted, dint mean a thing, if he could not produce a birth certificate, or naturalization papers, then he was not eligible for a new social security card.

His parents were both US citizens, and he always knew he was a naturalized citizen, but never applied for the naturalization papers, BECASE IN THE 60s, and 70s, US documents were issued WITHOUT PROOF of citizenship. My spouse had to file for naturalization papers and eventually obtained the social security card.

IN SUMMARY, it could be very well possible, that Obama obtained his first passport by lying and in those day there a birth cert was not required, and he has been reissued a passport all these years, using the first fraudulent passport as a breeder document, just as to this day, my spouse's drivers license is reissued without have ever shown proof of a certified birth certificate or naturalization papers.

As for obama's Social security number, he couldn't beat the system by using his old card, since socail secirty asked for a birth cert these days so that is probably explains the story of why he has many different fraudulent cards.

Of course don't try to explain any of these real;l possibilities to a libral, who most are dumber than a doorknob and wont be able to follow any thing, good grief they don't know the difference between a billion and a trillion when it comes to debt, most don't know when a person is alive, and most cant tell a snake oil salesman when they see one in the likes of Obama!

Last time I checked, "not having had people making a fuss about your foreign-born father on or before a certain date" was not part of the qualifications for being President of the United States.

Having a passport is also not one of those qualifications.

If your guy has a long form certificate that supports the contention that he is a natural-born citizen of the United States, please bring it out.

But displaying a passport? That's counter-productive and practically an admission of guilt. Why else would POTUS try to firm up his eligibility by displaying a strawman document?

Answer: because he's got nothing.

A passport proves virtually nothing. When you apply, you have to supply some sort of birth “proof” but I strongly suspect that the photoshopped fake from the internet would’ve been enough for this, since he was in office and they probably lined up at the Passport Office to do his bidding and would’ve listed Mars if he said to.
