W.H.: 'Birthers' aren't 'rational'
Politico ^ | 1/24/2011 | MATT NEGRIN & MJ LEE

Posted on 01/24/2011 12:39:59 PM PST by mojito

Here’s what you need to know from Monday’s (1/24/2011)White House briefing with press secretary Robert Gibbs:

-- Gibbs hinted that President Obama will talk about gun rights in his State of the Union address....

-- Gibbs snuck a jab at the so-called birthers who don’t believe Obama was born in Hawaii. “I think rational people have long ago, many when they first heard and saw the president, come to the conclusion of his citizenship,” he said.

“irrational” means believing something without a basis or reason.

No birth certificate has been presented.
Nothing that would qualify him to get even a DRIVER’S LICENSE has been presented.

These are facts. This is the “basis” for the belief that he’s hiding something.

It is entirely rational.

Wow.

If you can judge citizenship by just looking and listening, why can't you judge terrorist intent, or lack of it?

I hope Olbermann just left MSNBC so he can take Gibby’s job.

THAT would be awesome.

Well of course people can just look at him and know he is a NBC. /s

I want the attention to be taken off the "birthers" and find out why he has SEALED EVERY RECORD.

I think rational people have long ago, many when they first heard and saw the president, come to the conclusion of his citizenship.

This doesn't make any sense, which is typical for Obama defenders on this issue. They must twist themselves into logical pretzels to keep from having to explain why Obama just doesn't release the long form.

Wouldn’t it be simpler to just produce the birth certificate vs Obambi coming out calling people names every couple of months ?

The sentence above is ambiguous. If you conclude he is American or Kenyan, the above statement would be true about you.

Yes, yes we have. I believe many believe that he is NOT a natural-born citizen. His mother's citizenship is questionable and his father is NOT an American citizen, so his TRUE citizenship is VERY questionable.

Add to that, that rationally, not showing his long form birth certificate, and paying millions to HIDE his records (ALL his records) speaks volumes to us "rational" people, that something is NOT right.

Get a clue Fibbs...get a clue.

And of course, his promise to “build a new foundation” was also very supportive of American traditional values.

What do you have to do to the “old” foundation to build a new one, anyway?

The issue is not his citizenship. It's whether or not he is a NATURAL BORN citizen as required under the constitution Gibbs - you idiot. There's a difference. Until he shows the official, certified, long form we will assume he is a fraud.

Lets see if I understand this: I had to have a birth certificate with an apostille seal from my birth state just to obtain a one-year work visa in Argentina. I also had to provide a copy of my high school and college diplomas, with seal, a letter of good conduct from my local sheriff, and a health certificate indicating I did not test positive for HIV.

All this for a work visa, and the turd in office does not have to even have a valid birth certificate to prove he is a US born citizen. Pretty freekin amazing.

Well what about the ‘reverse’?

If I can ‘look’ at him and tell he is American, then why can’t I ‘look’ at him and say he is not?

This ‘logic’ is insane.

Man, these guys are really getting desperate.

I took one look at Gibbs and came to the conclusion that he is a citizen of Mars. That must be rational too.

I don’t kmow what’s worse; Obama not being a U.S. citizen, or his simply refusing to prove it. If it’s the latter, I fear he is seriously disturbed.

I guess the other side of the coin is that if the usurper were actually, you know, like doing a good job? Honest truth nobody would care. I know there are purists that would argue the point but as a practical matter, the whole issue would go away if we had somebody who was actually doing good things for the country. Imagine someone who had served with valor in the US Armed Forces, who had fought bravely to defend our border, our currency, our jobs, our economy, our national security, our values? I can state that given those facts, I wouldn’t really care what the BC said. Maybe I should, but I wouldn’t.

News for you, Robbie. You can only make rational deductions when you have facts to work from.

Obama has never given us any facts to work from.

None.

So it’s not surprising if people speculate, Why?

Especially when a serious crime may be involved.

Gibbs snuck a jab at the so-called birthers who don’t believe Obama was born in Hawaii. “I think rational people have long ago, many when they first heard and saw the president, come to the conclusion of his citizenship,” he said.

Bluster and derision are the hallmarks of a liar, Mr. Gibbs.

Irrefutable documentation is the hallmark of truthfulness and integrity. Since the Kenyan Clown and his circus have not offered documentation but mockery and contempt, I think it's clear what's going on — the Kenyan Clown has had more than sufficient time to provide clear documentation of his natural born citizenship status in these United States.

Instead, even his true-blue supporter, Governor Abercrombie, now admits that no such irrefutable documentation can be produced.

It's hard to imagine a more classless group of rubes in the White House than this lot; even the Clintons and Andrew Jackson have nothing on these parvenus. History will find this gracelessness particularly magnified if it turns that the Kenyan Clown is actually an illegal alien.

Believing he IS a citizen is far more “irrational”,
ie, is a belief based on nothing,
than believing he is NOT eligible for office.

Perhaps the prospect of Bobby Gibbs of doing some serious jail time is making his thinking little funny, making him say some very irrational things. name calling.
