In his first interview since being sworn in as Speaker of the House, John Boehner makes it clear he has no questions about President Obamas birth, saying the State of Hawaii has said President Obama was born there. Thats good enough for me.
In the exclusive interview with NBCs Brian Williamsset to air tonight on NBC Nightly NewsBoehner does not say hell tell members of Congress to simply put the matter of the presidents birth aside:
WILLIAMS: Im curious as to how much responsibility you feel specifically because of something that happened this morning. During the reading of the Constitution, Congressman Frank Pallone of New Jersey was reading a portion of the document, interrupted by someone who heckled from within the chamber. It was to express doubt over the Presidents American citizenship. Provided you believe the President is an American citizen, youve got 12 members co-sponsoring legislation that does about the same thing, it expresses doubt. Would you be willing to say, This is a distraction, Ive looked at it to my satisfaction. Lets move on.
BOEHNER: The state of Hawaii has said that President Obama was born there. Thats good enough for me.

That is the key phrase. Just being an American Citizen does not mean Natural Born.
Hey John..... psssssst: Trust but VERIFY. Capache?
Yeah, me too; now, lets talk about Natural Born Citizenship status.
It’s not just about the birth records. Everything about his past is a closed book. Obama is hiding something big.
Great tears, though.
10 minutes into his role of Speaker of the House and ....
He goes and wimps out with this lame-*** asnswer.
Now that Bohner “knows” Barry was born in Hawaii, perhaps he should look into what a Natural Born Citizen IS.
Come on John! It’s just the future of this NATION on the line.
Republicans are the same as Democrats. This is more proof of it. No change at all in Congress.
There probably needs to be a third party for positive change.
Uh ... no. Williams was trying to trap him into something and Boehner countered. I thought it was a good diversion. The following statement by Boehner pretty much shows that he was giving Williams a non-answer.
I say “good shot.” Doesn’t look like he’s gonna fall for reporter traps.
Both parties suck and all we saw today was a DOG & PONY show at the expense of the taxpayer/slave.When will people in America get it?
If Boehner would have said anything, that would become a huge distraction. That wasn’t the time nor the place to make this an issue.
I agree, the reporter figured he had him trapped...good answer.
Sometimes I wonder if the person in the WH may not even be the same person who was born BHO.
Good shot? Nope. Not even. Boehner might have well said
NANCY PELOSI Has Said President Obama Was Born There. Thats Good Enough For Me.
Who cares what someone said. Can we not see proof? I’m one of millions who will kick in the 10 bucks it would cost to get the vault copy.
Only the long form should be good enough. Bone-head screwed up.
Bohner’s smart ... he’s playing chess ... looking at the big picture ... undoubtedly the episode in Congress today was a “classic” setup
He effectively ended the Williams attack and moved on. It was a good shot.
Thats Good Enough For Me
If Boehner would have said anything, that would become a huge distraction. That wasnt the time nor the place to make this an issue.
Wrong. Just wrong. This whole question came on the heals of Teresa Cao’s arrest for yelling.
“Except Obama! Help me Jesus!”.
(Yelled at the time the reading of the qualifications for president mentioned Natural Born Citizen.)
Now is a perfect time for conservatives to press the illegitimacy of the Kenyan. Repeal Obama care. Start the ball rolling on Congressional hearings to investigate Certifigate. Special prosecutors to investigate the many criminal actions of the Kenyan.
Lots to be done. Today is the best day to do it.
. . and the media is complicit in it; they refused to vet him because they didn’t want to appear racist. You’re right, most of his past is a closed book. Pelosi didn’t bother all that much when it was her job to bother. If all he’s hiding is the facts about his socialist/communist/leftist connections, it’s enough that he shouldn’t have become President. Now, he’s set for life, and we’ll pay through the nose for the next two years. Obama’s personally collecting a lot of reparations on behalf of all we “owe” to the blacks for slavery. It’s pretty funny since he’s only half black with a lot of baggage. . but, he was elected . . so there you have it. That’ll learn us white people, dern us!
Time for a civics lesson.

What you see is what you get. Anybody that thinks Boehner is going to rock the boat is going to be greatly disappointed. He is the GOP elite as is Mitch McConnell.
I suspect that Boehner may be employing a tactic that I was taught by a fellow coward when visiting the dentist. His advice was, back when all dentist were of the male species, was to grab the dentist by the scrotum and make a deal that “We’re not going to hurt one another now are we”?...Such is Boehners tactic...there is only two years left in zero’s admin. and the Congress can pull on his nut sack until he is a real zero...it would take longer to get rid of the sack of excretment through the courts via the BC challenges.. Just this ole boys thoughts.......
” Speaker of the House, John Boehner makes it clear he has no questions about President Obamas birth”
In his speech and demeanor, he comes across as very unopposing and human. Something about him suggests just the opposite however. I think he is a wolf in sheeps clothing and I think this wolf is too good at his game to get caught in any reporter’s trap. As such, I am watching his actions and not listening too closely to his words just yet.
Though I personally have some questions about Obama’s eligibility, nobody has produced conclusive proof of his ineligibility. Until then, he is President, & must be dealt with politically.
Too, I'd like to see Boehner, & America, send this Marxist back to the socialist ghetto (Chicago) he came from; & do it by via the will of the people at the ballot box, in Congress, & in the polls. Obama has been a total failure, & it's gonna take 2 more years to convince the slower folks in our population. Of course, the corrupt among us will never be convinced. They like Obama. He's one of them.
I don’t think the State of Hawaii ever officially said Obama was actually born in Hawaii. The official a while back said she “saw his birth certificate” and that it was “filed in accordance with Hawaii’s laws.” That’s not the same as saying he was Hawaiian born, since Hawaii allows the filing of birth certificates from other places.
The media didn't vet Obama because they didn't want the American public to learn what they already knew which is that Obama is an evil, racist leftist who is bent on destroying America.
He could have said, ‘Let’s wait and see what Abercrombie releases’.
Even if he was born in Hawaii, did he give up his citizenship along the way? There are questions that need to be answered in court so a determination can be made.
I personally believe that his past will unravel like the threads on a cheap garment if just a piece of his history comes to light. That’s why he won’t reveal anything.
This is the dems problem...that is who will sack him...especially when zero gives everything the Republicans ask for....since zero cares only about me me me...and Republicans can make him look good...he will be bowing to them...and the liberals will start exploding....they have the goods on Zero...and will force him to resign...
There’s more than one way to skin a cat. Screw the birther issue and go for the jugular... corruption while in office... let the investigations begin.
As Boehner said, he will be running a decentralized House of Representatives. If what he said is true, do you think he is going to stop others from introducing legislation on the subject of eligibility? Of course not. He’s going to allow it to come to a vote.
Folks, It could get really exciting out there. I hope it does.
Not the Manchurian Candidate but perhaps the Saudi Candidate?
I think he’s hiding, what a thread last week mentioned, that Barack Hussein, Sr. was NOT his father, but that Frank Marshall Davis was his dad.
IMO, Miss Stanley was so busy, she had NO idea who the baby daddy was. Thus a blank on the birth certificate with no name and “might” be cause for embarrassment, or at least it would have been when BO was born.
I happened to be driving when he was sworn in. That is the only time I listen to the radio. I noted the comment that he was not using the Bible but just had his hand on the podium.
I guess it is his choice but it might show something about him.
“....lets talk about Natural Born Citizenship status.”
How can anyone even start that conversation knowing full well that Obam’s pappy was NEVER a US citizen?
The whole problem is that the Republicans allow the mainstream media to set the narrative. There are plenty of responses Boehner could have come up with besides that weak and evasive answer. Like look, we want more evidence from Obama on his Hawaiin birth and if he can’t produce it, he’s in trouble. The Consitution requires it.
The Republican Party are cowards, intimidated by the Democrats and their media agents into doing just what the Dems want on this issue. Hopeless.
And the so called Conservative pundits who likewise bo the Dems bidding on this are betraying us as well.
Whining, lying, crying RINO wimp.
Instant RINO, just add power.
I’m with you.
“that Barack Hussein, Sr. was NOT his father, but that Frank Marshall Davis was his dad.”
He looks and acts more like Malcolm X. Check out pictures and videos and note physical resemblance, mannerisms, gestures, oratorical style, etc. It uncanny.
So is the House going to look into the non-eligibility or not?
Anybody who calls Boehner needs to tell him that the HDOH has indirectly confirmed that the “vital records” Fukino referred to in her statement were amended in 2006, which means they are not legally valid.
IOW, Fukino said that she has personally seen the LEGALLY INVALID vital records verifying that Obama was born in Hawaii.
Boehner needs to know that, because legally invalid records don’t prove anything. They have no probative value, and the State of Hawaii does not vouch for any claims on them. So Fukino CANNOT say where Obama was born. According to HRS 338-17 Obama’s BC only ever have any legal value if it is presented as evidence to a judicial or administrative person or body. And in that case, the evidentiary standards would have to be met to determine whether the claims were considered valid.
So - long story short - Boehner needs to know that the HDOH has admitted that what they have for Obama is legally invalid - that the “vital records” on which Fukino based her statement are legally invalid records.
By failing to clarify that when she knew people misunderstood her, she deceived Boehner and other federal officials on a matter of federal jurisdiction, which is a violation of the Federal General False Statement Act.
“...there is only two years left in zeros admin....”
Enough time for him to do irreversible damage to the country.
