Skip to comments.Obama can't leave birth certificate jokes alone
Posted on 03/11/2011 7:08:52 AM PST by Smokeyblue
For someone who refuses to discuss or release information about his original birth certificate, President Obama certainly likes to make jokes about it.
The latest quip came this week at a fundraiser in Boston.
"There's no weakness in us trying to reach out and seeing if we can find common ground," he told attendees. "Now, there are going to be times where we can't. I was born in Hawaii. What can I say? I mean, I just ... I can't change those facts."
The "fact," however, still has not been publicly documented, as he's not only refused to release his original birth certificate substituting instead a computer-generated birth record summary from the state he's also battled court requests for his school records, college records, records from his years in the Illinois legislature and other documents typically available for prominent leaders.
It was just about a year ago at the White House correspondents' annual dinner when he couldn't leave the subject alone, either:

BORN IN THE USA? Obama can't leave birth certificate jokes alone Quips about 'fact' of Hawaiian birth during Boston fundraiser
When the reckoning comes it will be devastating.
Does he make school records jokes too?
He just can’t help throw the crap in our faces. Someday I hope this all catches up to him. He who laughs last...
Does he make adoption jokes too?
At the news conference today, will he inform the American people that he had agreed to finally release his birth certificate............however it just happened to have been destroyed in the great tsunami that hit Hawaii(and wasn’t reported) Will he claim that the tsunami was the second attack on U.S.soil from the Japanese since 1941 and rather that retaliating as we did then, we are going to have a Saki conference
Reminds me of that old saying “methinks he protest too much” This is Freudian.
"Don't mention the war. I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it ..."
It’s part of the narcissist sense of humor. “Rubbing peoples noses in it” is one of the most amusing things to them.
I read an article a while back that said that the “birther” problem is something that the re-election campaign is watching. If enough states pass bills requiring proof of eligibility to get on the ballot, he may decide not to run.
I bet he was scratching his nose with his middle finger when he said that.
He thinks it's cute.
My thought is that he’s trying to make this an issue. Take everyone’s attention away from something else. If it seriously was an issue, he would not flaunt it like this. His handlers would not let him. Always watch what the other hand is doing.
Devastating for whom?
Wrong. He’s trying to stop state initiatives by mocking/ridiculing the issue. Alinski.
It seems to be working as these state eligibility bills are getting nowhere.
Good point. I hope you are correct rather than me.
Nervous and guilty people can’t keep their mouths shut.
“Wrong. Hes trying to stop state initiatives by mocking/ridiculing the issue. Alinski.
It seems to be working as these state eligibility bills are getting nowhere.”
He is trying to make it sound like this issue has been settled so the states just let it go.
I really think we need an organized effort to motivate our new freshman congressman to compel the release of all Obamas’ sealed records, Not just the birth cert. If his records prove he was born here then fine we can move on but until then we can’t let this go.
So how do we organize an effort? How do we pressure the freshman congressman to act?
Wouldn’t it be the Chief Justice’s responsibility to insure a candidate meets the citizenship criteria of the Constitution BEFORE swearing him in ?
“I can’t change those facts.”
Can’t prove them either, apparently.
2012 is coming,
and several states have introduced eligibility requirements,
to my knowledge, not one of them has passed. They’ve all gone just “so” far, and then they found some reason to not pass it.
It’s like they’re getting some sort of call in the middle of the night “explaining” that they can’t bring this issue to a head.
Obama needs to be impeached, tried for treason and brought to justice for the harm he has INTENTIONALLY done to America.The man is a thug and a criminal.
Everyone should start using the phrase
“the unsubstantiated claim that he was born in Hawaii”
In my opinion they are never going to act. The republicans are in on it. They may or may not have been in on it from the get go but they are accessories after the fact for sure. Aiding and abetting the usurper.
These state bills are getting killed in committee. Who are these people? Long term connected politicos who don’t want to upset the apple cart.
When is Leo ever going to pursue Quo warranto?
How much longer do we have to suffer Hussein-the-usurper?
I think we're just about there if not already...
Kind of like a criminal going back to the scene of the crime, makes him feel invincible because the investigators have no idea the guy poking around the edges of the crime scene, is the perp. He becomes more bold and begins asking questions of the investigators... same mindset here with the Prez...
Will he be joking when his college enrollment information is released possibly showing he was Indonisian?
1. NObama used a “Hawaiian Certificate Of Live Birth” to prove his eligibility.
2. Barry Hussein Obama Soetero has a half-sister, named Maya.
3. Maya was born in Jakarta, Indonesia.
4. Maya admits this fact.
5. Barry Hussein Obama Soetero also admits his 1/2 sister was born in Jakarta, Indonesia.
6. Maya Soetero ALSO HAS a Hawaiian Certificate Of Live Birth.
Anyone can get such a certificate. It does NOT prove that the person was born in Hawaii or elsewhere on USA soil.
Besides—the citizenship of his father is also in question, therefore tainting the correct birth citizenship of the offspring.
Obama has us by the short hairs-—he knows it-—and he thinks it’s funny.
He is spitting in our faces.
They need to frame this as not being about Obama. It’s a loophole that was discovered because of the Obama situation, but it needs to be taken care of, obama or no Obama. I still believe that if any states pass it, he’ll just ignore it and claim it doesn’t apply to him because he’s already President.
Obama is a joke.
He’s president until Jan 20, 2013.
He has to re-apply and win that office Nov 8, 2012.
He can “still” be president, but in order to re-apply, we need the states to make sure he’s eligible.
0bama is getting arrogant and thinking he has outsmarted everyone by intimidation, up to an including The SCOTUS, but every dog has it’s day - just wait.
He also thinks it’s funny that Republicans and Fox/conservative news outfits have left Lt. Col. Lakin sitting in prison for Obama.
He’s laughing his ass off. He’s a usurper and he’s untouchable.
Think about it. A dedicated, decorated, 18-year military veteran, medical doctor is sitting in jail for following the Constitution.
He must find it hard not to burst out giggling with glee over Fox and Republicans covering his crimes for him.
Ted Kennedy constantly made jokes about his car crash in which that young lady died. Liberals are sickening. Its a guilty thing with them, and constantly on their minds.
I was born in outer space. Can any of you prove me wrong?
If there is any risk of Obama's fraudulent eligibility being exposed for all to see I don't think he can avoid stepping down for an unrelated reason like health. Otherwise every piece of legislation and all appointments this usurper has signed will become null and void. Not to mention all the co-conspirators and enablers in the ruling elite who would go down with him. And of course the threats of civil unrest.
obama will release a “document “ that been altered to look like he was born in Hawaii. this is only a distraction fron the fact that he is not a natural born citizen.
He can fulfill that requirement simply by presenting the live, paper version of those JPEGs he and FactCheck.org released in 2008. If the respective secretaries of state choose to reject that document, the burden will be on them to prove it's invalid. Or the courts will just order him placed on the ballot.
However, it's likely that, come 2012, he'll be in such bad odor with the American people that the only secretary of state that will matter will be the one replacing him on the ballot after he loses the primary.
That's only relevant to the discussion if (a) she truly has a CoLB issued by Hawaii and (b) said certificate asserts she was born in Hawaii instead of Indonesia. More than likely, if such a document exists at all, it says she was born in Jakarta on such and such a date and time to Stanley Ann Dunham and Lolo Soetoro.
You’re right - I’m just saying how I think he will handle it knowing the way he operates.
Yeah I could see that happening.
He must be confident that they got the situation under control.
I would love for someone to stand up at one of his news conferences and ask him outright why he’s keeping all of these documents under wraps. Some journalists we have.
