The “Birthers” Get A Big Push From … Chris Matthews? UPDATE: More Matthews
http://radioviceonline.com/ ^ | December 27, 2010 | Jim Vicevich

OK … that’s just a cheap headline to get views … I think. Matthews spent his entire first segment with Clarence Page and David Corn discussing the recent push by Hawaii’s new Democrat Governor to finally get the young President’s long form birth certificate into the public domain. The idea is to end the controversy … and Matthews likes it? Yikes!

It is a little bit stunning. A poll in the NYT in April showed that 42% of the American public were not convinced Obama was born in the USA, with due respect to “The Boss”. Adding to the controversy is a story that the Governor of Hawaii wants the into out too. True.

“The president is entitled to the respect of his office and he’s entitled to have his mother and father respected.”

I caught some of this. The tone of the whole thing was: “Look how stupid birthers are!” “Even the long form birth certificate won’t satisfy birthers, they’re crazy.”

However, I was stunned that Matthews asked one, clear, simple, logical, reasonable question, (quite a feat for a leftie): “Everyone has a long form birth certificate with signatures, etc. What’s the harm in producing it?”

Crissy is so stupid that he doesn’t realize that the Obama administration wants this “issue” to linger.

It’s a setup, I’m sure. They have a good forgery that they are going to wave about.

But I predict there will be a tiny flaw that someone will uncover...

Because Krissie will take the focus off the fact that Obama is not eligible as the guy who knocked up his commie hippy mother was a citizen of a foreign country

There was a previous thread to this one on the same subject.
It got locked.

Why do we have this kind of censorship on Free Republic?

I can understand censoring certain topics but, why is the birther subject taboo ?

I love Free Republic. I read it every day.
It is the last place I would expect censorship concerning a topical political issue to rear its head.

Yes, Freepers just might do that, just as they uncovered the Dan Rather fraud.

Actually, who better to generate more propaganda regarding the matter? A democrat gov. and a liberal presstitute. Both doing their jobs as useful idiots.

I just can’t bring myself to give Matthews that much credit for intelligence.

On the contrary, he realizes it and is abetting the administration in its efforts to keep it alive. Otherwise he wouldn't be featuring it on his show.

I suspect that's also the motivation behind the new Hawaii governor's ressurecting it.

Did any of you also notice that the only prominent politicians/MSM “reporters” talking about this in the last few months are Dem's?

Perhaps the Overton Window is opening up for the ruling elites and their media propagandists?

I guess the forged fake is ready. From out of the back window of a ‘79 Pacer (to mimic the aging process) and into the hands of Obama just in time for his Hawaiian vacation. (Right on the heels of the announcement that Hil-liar-y is leaving the State Department job.)

True the Obamabots do think that keeping the birther issue alive works in their favor but Matthews and his gaggle of idiots never considered another logical answer: the birth cert confirms his US citizenship but also contains some other embarrassing info on it that the campaign wanted to keep under wraps. It’s most likely a “cover up is worse than the crime”-type thing, some fairly silly tidbit that they have to keep covering it up since they initially did so. Maybe it lists his religion as Muslim or his race as white. The most serious problem he has that I can imagine is that the cert was issues based on testimony from his grandparents rather than hospital staff. That would definitely be something he would want to hide.

Not likely. There's nothing on the long form that's not on the short form that would be embarassing.

Maybe it lists his religion as Muslim

Nope. Religion isn't on the long form.

or his race as white.

Nope. Only the race of the parents is listed on the long form, just as on the short form.

The most serious problem he has that I can imagine is that the cert was issues based on testimony from his grandparents rather than hospital staff. That would definitely be something he would want to hide.

Why would he want to hide that?

What we are seeing now is classic Obama political kabuki theater. The Obama administration’s political operatives have made a calculated decision, probably based on focus groups, that now that there is a Democratic administration in Hawaii, there is a way to release the long form and have the Obama administration stay at arm’s length from the disclosure.
Governor Abercrombie was installed in the Governor’s mansion precisely for this purpose.
To have released the long form under the previous Republican administration in Hawaii would have looked like Obama was caving in to his political enemies.
Now the long form can be released to embarrass the birthers and Abercrombie can be the hero for facilitating the release and demonstrating “transparency,” a term that the new Governor has already used concerning the upcoming disclosure. Chris Matthews is a convenient media dupe to publicize the release of the long form.

******************************************************

Because it wouldn’t match the story that he was born in one of the Honolulu hospitals. Still not sure which hospital, though.

Good point.

Even DU says the Long Form BC should be produced—

20. No matter how you look at it, releasing the birth certificate ...
would make the problem go away. It’s so simple a solution that many people believe that Obama won’t do it because he can’t.

Personally I really don’t give a crap whether he was born here or not. He is our President. We voted him into office.<<<

Why the sudden chatter?

Maybe it’s a distraction. They can’t really talk about the economy, jobs, or ObamaCare, so they distract with this.

“O” may be native born but he cannot be natural born for several reasons, not the least of which is that according to “O” himself is father was a KENYAN!

The only thing that Crissy has done by keeping it news is by not sweeping it under the carpet...

Actually, we should give the Obot's a lot of credit, and we should thank them for keeping the birther issue alive and well, for if it was not for them, we would not have had someone to challenge us to fight on.... WE ARE FEELING THE LOVE OBOTS/Anti-birthers !!!
