Donald Trump draws Barack Obama into 'birther' fray
Politico ^ | April 14, 2011 | MAGGIE HABERMAN

Posted on 04/15/2011 4:17:13 AM PDT by libstripper

President Barack Obama took on the “birther” issue that potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has yanked from the GOP’s fringe and thrust into the mainstream, saying it will backfire in a general election because people know he doesn’t “have horns” and want to focus on pocketbook issues.

I thought it was more odd for him to say “I was born in Hawaii”

Let ‘er backfire Hoss.

A backfire is an explosion in the exhaust system.
Caused by gas fumes on the way out.

No, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Dunham has drawn Trump into the the “birther” fray. This would not be happening if ¿Obama? hadn’t locked up his entire past.

Why would Trump be doing the investigation?

Most likely he’s going to find out about the social security cards of old people Obama has. They were born in the 1890s and applied for social security in the late 1970s to get medical benefits. It appears they were targeted because it was assumed they would not live much longer. So, the SSN were not expired, the name and date of birth was simply changed to Obama’s. This here is most likely what Trumps going to get him for first.

But, what’s he going to do with the info?

The bad news for Obama is that Americans do not need Rush Limbaugh to tell them how much money they have in their pocketbooks.

We just got to keep reminding Americans who controls the Senate and who the President is (sadly we have to remind them)

According to a former IRS Examiner:

“It appears Barry fled New York to Chicago using his new identity to get a job . He likely ordered a fake diploma to bolster his new identity as “Obama”. Fake Diploma’s were very big in the 80’s and diploma mills were even being used by federal workers to get promotions. There is evidence his alleged attendance at Columbia was faked (Barry never attended Columbia) and Barry lied his way into Harvard (he had no transcripts to get in)... Including telling the Saudi royal family he was fighting in Afghanistan with the Muslim Jihad against the Russians, so they would help him get into a law school.”

From the article:

Nah, too easy.

Very odd. Given his penchant for deceit, he is saying he is Satanic but we haven't found the evidence (his horns).

Amazingly not one media outlet or "fact-checking" outlet can tell you the name of the hospital where Barry was born or even the name of the doctor who delivered him!

The pressure is building and the fact that he keeps referring to and jokingly alluding to the BC issue means Trump is really getting to him.

Given his willingness to parse, I think he was able to shed the horns. However, he should be checked for hooves and a tail.

I find it interesting that Øbama refers to himself in the 3rd person....and that the American people are “pretty sure” that he was born in Hawaii.

I hear the sweat on his brow.

Hussein's, statements seemed a little bit too contrived - something that political strategists cooked up for him to say - to ridicule those wanting proof and in hopes of making the whole thing go away.

Note: to dims: You can make the whole issue moot by releasing his COLB and his school transcripts, but I don't think that will happen.

In his recent speech, he mentioned that he wouldn’t be where he is without a scholarship. He opened the door, so all particulars surrounding this alleged scholarship ought to be investigated and aired.

Another funny addition to this story line is that Hawaii has ceased issuing Long Form Certs (apparently in an effort to protect Obama).

The Constitution, the Law of the Land, doesn’t address POTUS not having horns or not being a Naphil (part of soon-coming Nephilim) but it does say that POTUS must be native born.

No you don't, but your Father does.

And Barry, how about that 'birthmark' on your thigh?
You know, the one that looks like... 666?.

“....and that the American people are “pretty sure” that he was born in Hawaii.”

Pretty sure is down from they were sure he was born there. The facade is slowly fading away, just like his support.

I hope The Donald keeps the heat on. I don’t really want him to run though, just keep launching those pin prick attacks, today the birth certificate, tomorrow the SS cards, next day the Selective Service Records, next day the college records next day the real estate deal and then back to square one. UNKO, they are being felt because the counter attack has started, today’s headline was that The Donald liked Obama over Bush in 2008.

It is round 1 and the champ has a cut over one eye. Keep up the jabs and by round 3 he will need a standing 8 count. Hopefully before the 6th, he goes down for the KO.

He said he “Grew up in Chicago” and that he wasn’t born there as he was born in Hawaii. Last time i checked, Obama didn’t come to Chicago until he was already “Grown up”.

Actually it's never been up to a private citizen to go investigating whether or not the President is eligible. That normally happens before they are allowed to run. The last time the government asked for proof of eligibility was when McCain had to bring all of his documents back in 2008.

I guess this process had suddenly become part of a budget cut just after McCain.

Good Old Leftico and Commie Maggie spinning the BS fro her Master George Soros .

I love how the Marxist Muslim is being spun as a victim and a bystander by this Soros media outlet.

Leftico appeared out of no where in 2006 so has any one investigated is links to George Soros or the Lewis thugs ?

But it is clearly a Hard left DNC propaganda outfit !

I'm seeing Muslim sites noting "Devil Horns". So now I see how that fits Obama. Maybe papa told him he would grow Devil Horns if he was bad. Now that makes sense.

Every time Obama says an off the wall remark, it seems to have a Muslim connection.

After Ft Hood....I have NO DOUBT. HE IS A MUSLIM and that's an anti-American, anti-Christian, anti- Jewish political system....NOT A RELIGION.
