MSNBC’s Matthews Rages Again: New Poll Says 72% Of Republicans Doubt Obama’s Citizenship
AIPNews.com ^ | Feb, 16, 2011 | John L. Work

Posted on 02/16/2011 9:43:29 AM PST by EternalVigilance

Here's The Right Side Of It

Chris Matthews - Angry Again

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is again fast-approaching apoplexy, this time over a recent survey conducted by left-leaning Public Policy Polling which reveals that 72% of Republicans queried are either not sure (21%), or do not believe (51%), that Barack Obama was born in the United States.  Matthews and friends very much want the story to go away.  Yet, the more he yells about it, the more the questions persist and demand some straightforward answers.

 WorldNet Daily has led the charge into the investigation of the President’s roots and the history he provided us in his two books.  For one example, WND’s Jerome Corsi uncovered hard forensic documentary evidence which shows that, contrary to what the President wrote in Dreams From My Father, Obama’s father and mother never lived together; further, that Stanley Ann Dunham took her newborn son and left Hawaii when Barack, Jr. was about two weeks of age, so that she could begin college classes at the University of Washington in Seattle.  And that’s just the beginning of what Corsi has found. 

Here’s WND’s latest, complete with some video of Chris Matthews’ latest Hardball coverage:

 http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=263973

 “A new poll is shocking the political powers in Washington with indication that only 3 in 10 members of the GOP believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States.

With the issue still disputed in a number of court cases and under review by nearly a dozen states considering laws that presidential candidates document their constitutional eligibility, the poll by Public Policy Polling found that only 28 percent of the Republicans surveyed believe Obama was born in the U.S. while 51 percent do not.

Another 21 percent say they are not sure…”

You can count me among the 21 percent who are not sure.  And none of us will ever be sure where this man came from and who he really is unless and until he releases all of his personal history that is either sealed under Court Orders, not yet found, or just not released.

The long-form birth certificate is but the beginning of the investigation.  College applications, elementary and high school records, financial aid applications, college transcripts, Columbia Senior Thesis, Harvard Law Review records, Illinois Bar Association records, Illinois State Legislature calendar, law client list, passport records, name-change records, re-patriation records, adoption records, baptism records – and more – are all under wraps by deliberation and with purpose. 

Obama has reportedly spent upwards of two-million dollars on attorneys’ fees to keep his entire life’s paper trail sealed, and to fight numerous lawsuits that seek to open those historical records.

In the meantime, Chris Matthews, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, NBC news and virtually the entire American Press Corps either ridicule the people who would just like straight answers to some very reasonable questions – or turn a blind eye to what is possibly the biggest act of political fraud ever perpetrated on the nation.

The story does not appear to be going away.  When we’ll get some answers to the questions is anyone’s guess.

Until I see actual proof that he was born in the USA, then the issue will not die for me.

Ditto - But rather then wanting to see his birth cert, I want to see his school records. He is an "IDIOT" and not as smart as the state run media says he is.

In AZ we are putting forth another bill to demand the Sec of State verify a Presidential’s qualification to run, so I don't think he will be on the ballot in AZ (he wouldn't carry our state anyway).

There is a dark side of secrecy surrounding phony baloney Obama.

I am beyond Birther.

Black Liberation Theology for 20 years, shady real estate deals with known felons, allegiances with slum lord Valerie, Larry Sinclair, Reggie Love, hidden sealed college grades and documents, Michelle's hospital triple salary jump for PR job once Barry was elected to state office, Barry's Foreign Exchange Student Status, foreign travel to restricted countries, missing anecdotal evidence from normal people surrounding Barry during his college years.

How could anyone not think there is something wrong with this picture?

Az chickened out on a Senate Bill 1525 (couldn't get out of committee) that took into account more than just Presidential qualifications. The House HB2544 still has a propose bill that addresses only the President qualifications. It had a reading yesterday but I cannot find news on what happened. Find them here (upper right corner hb2544 or sb1525)

I am 100% sure that the truth will come out eventually... but it will be LONG after Obama has left office, and quite possibly long after he is dead.

Sen. John McCain, House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor have stated on the record that Obama is a U.S. citizen.

What they won’t tell you is that Obama is a Naturalized U.S. Citizen.

Inasmuch as I think he is not a citizen, there is no doubt that by the standards of the founders, Barry Sotero is not a Natural Born citizen, simply because his father was a British subject. Hence, to me, this whole birth certificate fiasco is something of a red herring.

That said, I have some doubts, so what? I don't take my doubts seriously, but I have them and would say so in a national poll.

Last Month I renew my drivers licence in Florida and I had to show my Birth Certificate. How did it evolved in American that one can be President and not have to show his Birth Certificate? The political class in the US plays by different rules and its time the salary and benefits of the people in Congress be revoked. Let’s return to a citizen government that really represents the people and serves out of a sense of love for the nation.

I never thought she would. At all.

But that’s not the question. Not even close.

The question is how much staying power our Constitution has.

And, if you look at this political and legal class we’re now saddled with, one must conclude that it has been made of no effect.

That’s really what this is all about, in a nutshell. The truth of the matter is now apparent to any thinking person.

Matthews is really stuck [!] on whether Obama is a natural born citizen.

"The story does not appear to be going away..."

Because they keep talking about it..Matthews doesn't wish it to go away, for what would he have to draw on, in his mission to demean the Right?

"A reasonable doubt is not an imaginary or frivolous doubt. It must not be based upon sympathy or prejudice. Rather, it is based on reason and common sense. It is logically derived from the evidence or absence of evidence....after the entire comparison and consideration of all the evidence leaves the minds of the jurors[the people] in that condition that they canot say they feel an abiding conviction to a moral certainty of the truth of the charge."

Gee, Mr. Matthews should also come to grips with the reality of these Republicans who also believe, quite factually, that Chris Matthews is a nuisance, obnoxious and says nothing that’s even close to the value of spit.

No one at MSNBC cares where Obama was born. They would not care if he were born on the moon.

Their entire purpose is to serve as a 24/7/365 propaganda machine for the Progressive movement. A key function of that effort is to avail themselves of each and every opportunity to ridicule and marginalize the opposition (Alinsky-style), while pretending to function as a generally objective, if "liberal-leaning" news organization. In this manner, they pretend to be a mirror image of FOX News, when in fact they are nothing of the kind.

missing anecdotal evidence from normal people surrounding Barry during his college years.

Plus, not one person from the hospital he was purportedly born at have said anything. In Illinois, there's a sign, at least, marking Reagan's birthplace, and I think the building is registered as an historical building. Is there any sign, commemoration or anything anywhere in Hawaii? Not for such an historic president?

The question is how much staying power our Constitution has.

It's only powerful as the people who believe in it and too few do.

America has been a free country since its founding and I had little doubt for most of my life that it would remain so.

I have serious doubts now.
