Obama jokes about birthers at fundraiser; 'birther bill' gets killed in New Hampshire

President Obama is laughing off lingering doubts about his birth certificate.

The commander-in-chief cracked wise at a fund-raiser in Boston, poking fun at the so-called "birther" movement, which insists he is not a natural-born citizen.

"There's no weakness in us trying to reach out and seeing if we can find common ground," he said Tuesday. "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."

66% that’s good.

What we really need is for these ‘Birthers” to convince foreign leaders that Obama’s not legit. We also could use some intervention from Ben Netanyahu and perhaps Rome. American voters have been filled with so much propaganda thanks to democrat party that runs the US education system the birthers may have less of an uphill battle bringing their case to foreign leaders.

But 66% is a good start.

Imagine if the Chinese leader or Israel or Rome told Obama “we cannot constitutionally recognize you as the leader of the United States. Any deals we make with you could be voided at some point in the future. As far as we know, you may have been born in Kenya”

I doubt this will happen as the article is so slanted towards birthers being nuts.

I wonder if the poll results even before I posted the link shocks him though...

I just read that the bill in Georgia would not apply to 0bama, and would not go into effect until 2013. The sponsor claimed that it was changed for "political reasons".

It is very strange that 0bama and his rabble are so afraid of having to produce a birth certificate. "Methinks he doth protest too much".

This is serious even if Obama really was born in the United States. It's more than that. Obama is setting precedence for future Presidential candidates. He's opening the doors for even an illegal alien to qualify to be the US leader!

Why would anybody be against a bill certifying that a candidate is legitimate before he gets on a ballot? Are they afraid that Obama won’t pass muster?

If it’s so crazy to expect each candidate to show proof of his natural born citizen status, why do we make little leaguers show their proof?

This spring, I hope parents tell the league, hell no, I’m not showing you my son’s birth certificate! I say he is 10! What are you, a birther??

It’s good to see the “I don’t know” is staying 0%.

I would hate to think that there is ANYBODY on the fence about Obama.

You’re either in the tank with him (because of your union job, your welfare check, your Islamic religion or your Communist Party Card) or you think he’s the worst prez since Jimminey Cricket Carter.

Nobody can be on the fence regarding Obama.

Note: This IS one of the signs of a dictatorship, folks. And please bear in mind that decorated Medical Doctor and [now] former LTC Terry Lakin was placed into and still remains in prison for questioning Obama’s eligibility and, therefore, the legality of his commands.

The ones that I thought were “sure fire” - Arizona and Georgia, both seemed to have backed down. The kenyan usurper is having his way. I never dreamed that America would be taken over by a foreigner, much less one from kenya!

So you say.
If it's that easy then release your long form birth certificate.

Nothing, you bastard.

So, any conjecture on your part as to why these “sure” states are running their eligibility legislation up to the wire and then backing off?

Seriously, if ‘bammy had to find an excuse not to run next year, there wouldn’t be civil unrest, if that’s what they’re worried about.

He could suddenly develop some sort of illness and have to retire from “public service”.

I don't "discuss" this issue. I'm merciless! I overwhelm and decimate anyone I talk to about this.
I don't pull my punches in the least and go straight for the knockout.
People are so ignorant it's pathetic and they leave me severely depressed that they've been so poorly used and that such a thing has happened.

Speaking of ignorance...most people don't even realize that his "birth certificate" is nothing more than an abstract document.

Correct me if I’m wrong,
but the only “birth certificate” we’ve seen was something posted by a third party on the internet,

which someone else showed they could reproduce in about 30 seconds.

Exactly and the fact that Obama does not want to release anything even after Anercromnie said there was A NOTATION of his birth.

Try signing up a kid for little league with a notation of birth.Try getting across Canada with a notation of birth.

You're not wrong. You can't even get a passport in some instances with an abstract.

Aside...you don't even hear who has possession of that abstract any more either.

Individuals were made an offer "they couldn't refuse"? I don't know.

I've heard that Abercrombie did an about face because Hawaii's funding was threatened by 0bama's goons, but Arizona has certainly moved past that on other issues. In Georgia, there are certainly a lot of people that strongly question his eligibility, so I don't think it is totally a political retreat.

In Georgia, does a candidate for state representative have to provide any legal document to prove that he is who he says he is, or does he simply sign his application form that says that the information on his application form is true under penalty of perjury.
