Pat Buchanan: MSNBC, Media Helping Obama "Conceal" Records
RealClearPolitics ^ | April 26, 2011 | Pat Buchanan

Posted on 04/26/2011 7:16:36 PM PDT by rob88888

Pat Buchanan defends why he is skeptical of President Obama's past.

"I'll tell you what. He went to Occidental College then suddenly he ends up at one of the best schools in the country, Columbia. He vaults from there to Harvard Law School. Suddenly he's on the Harvard Law Review. Suddenly he's the editor of Harvard Law Review. We've never seen any grades of the guy. These are legitimate questions," Buchanan said.

Key quote: Pat Buchanan to Chris Matthews: "You're supposed to be a journalist!"

I defy you to watch this video and not want to punch Chrissy Matthews in the face. He asks Pat Buchanan a question about Obama's records, interrupts him three seconds later with another question, interrupts him again, smirks, laughs, cuts him off to imply he's a racist, and on and on and on. Disgusting.

Pat does a pretty good job of slapping Ms. Chrissy.

That is a good quote to use against most so-called journalists. Most of them still take pride in the word and concept, so I think as long as people keep telling them that, I think a few might crack and do their jobs.

If I was Obama, I'd wait until the birther complaints reached a crescendo and then release the certificate of live birth in the hopes of cutting my opponents off at the knees. True, it's unlikely that the WH can think that far ahead, but that's an easier thing to do than to forge the rest of the paper trail that supposedly documents his birth. Either way, so far as the GOP nominee is concerned, there are battles to fight and there are distractions. Which is worse, a foreign born one term president or a a two-term American-born marxist?

This is mostly likely chapter 1 of the Democrat's 2012 playbook.

Get used to being disgusted, but remember that Democrats are trying to distract the public from Obama's record and are going to try to draw their opposition into a pissing contest in the hopes that they'll come out on top. It isn't Democrat deceit that angers me most. That's a given. It's what they do in broad daylight and get away with.

If he did that he would be crushed at the poles. You think for one moment the people would tolerate any asshole leading the nation on and spending that much money trying to seal those records to only release them at any time they choose. It would make them appear to be what they are. Arrogant and elitists.

It would be the greatest backfire in the history of politics.

So what about the records, the full force of the US Govt can forge any records they want, and then, the Resident still sucks. The focus should only be on the Kenyan’s relentless effort to destroy America, our jobs, our currency, our way of life, our freedoms, our reputation in the world. He is openly being treasonous for pete’s sake. Of course he is going to produce any bogus record anybody wants whenever he wants. The nation has already been fooled, lets focus on the 14 trillion deficit, the doubled oil price, the raging unemployment, the govt healthcare takeover, the bank bailout, the auto industry nationalization, the allah akbar in Ft Hood - no shortage of criminal moves by this Joker marxist. Wake up!!

BTW, does anyone think that drawing your opponents into a pissing contest is a favorite tactic of radical “community organizers”? Food for thought. The MSM wants to portray the conservative mainstream as being nuts, and they will misquote and put words into the mouths of “the enemy” as needed. Obama knows who his friends are.

So now we have Donald Trump and Pat Buchanan asking about Obama’s history.

The mainstream media is silent. That includes: Rush, Anne, Greta, all of them, including the mainstream media.

WHY?

crz, do you remember when President Bill “That depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is” Clinton jumped through all sorts of hoops to suborn perjury (a clear felony) and get away with it? There was anger at the polls alright, but not in the favor of the Republicans. What good did the impeachment battle do on top of that? This isn’t about honor. Washington DC has no honor. This is about fighting the Democrat agenda.

How do you know that Obama is spending any money? If Obama himself has to request the certificate of live birth from Hawaii, I would assume it's because he's the only one who can legally do a FOIA for it.

Chris Matthews, completely in love with Barack Hussein Obama.

One Matthews quote sums up who Matthews is, “Take over for me Terry (Mcauliffe)”.

Chris Matthews won’t shut up until MSNBC has to choose between continuing his show and solvency. Having anything Fox’s viewership may simply not be one of their goals.

FOIA has nothing to do with requesting your own birth certificate. In fact it has an exemption that forbids filling requests from others for "personnel and medical files and similar files the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy."

I always want to punch Fat Boy in his fat face. He acts like he works for the corrupt Obama administration. The so called journalists are attacking citizens for asking the questions journalists are suppose to be asking. Watching the news on most channels is like watching a pro Obama infomercial. It's so pathetic that only the most ignorant people can't see what's going on.

Well, there you go. But this appears to be the way that CNN is defining the debate. You can argue over the fine points of Hawaii law, but is even 30% of the voting public going to care one way or the other?

“...release the certificate of live birth in the hopes of cutting my opponents off at the knees.”

The COLB is NOT what people need to see for eligibility.

The Long Form Birth Certificate is what Little Stevie Dunhamn is trying to hide. (as well as his school records, his fraudulent Social Security number, the reason he relinquished his law license, his financial backing-”scholarship” for Harvard, etc, etc...)

Notice that the Democrat hack in that video is the one bringing up the issue of US federal debt to China? Gee, how did Democrats suddenly take ownership of that issue? It’s insulting enough when Obama has been trying to keep federal spending at record levels but keeps pretending that he’s more serious than Republicans are about spending cuts. Could it be that they can get away with this because certain conservative activists are preoccupied with trying to win an argument with a left-wing idiot like Matthews over a scrap of paper? Man, this is depressing.

Naw. He laughs “with” Chrissy like he is the doddering old friend that licks rears clean. Seriously, watch again. Like the wimp that kisses hind end to make the bully in school like him. He got in a few shots, but all in all it played to Pat’s and Chrissy audience to be honest. Pat was a fool and made to look stupid. He accepted that premise to a tee in his efforts.

You got it backwards:

USA TODAY/GALLUP POLL April 2011:

"The poll says only 38 percent of Americans are convinced Obama definitely was born in the U.S. and another 18 percent say he probably was."

Wow, I hated watching that clip. Pat Buchanan said all the right things, but Chris Matthews just mocked and laughed at him the whole time, while the sleazy Terry McAuliffe kept repeating the Dem talking point of “I think it’s great that Republicans are talking about this because it’s more votes for us!” I wish Pat had come out more strongly against Chris, but I guess he has to keep those professional relationships friendly, even as Chris all but declares him an idiot and a racist on national television.

BTW, 9/11 truthers come up with all sorts of assertions that are supposed to prove that the attacks were an inside job. Whenever someone challenges one of their “facts”, truthers typically don’t try to refute their opponent’s point. Instead, they bring up another charge; in other words, they change the subject. For the uninitiated, it’s hard to tell whether truthers: 1) actually believe that all the circumstantial “evidence” they present could lead to any conclusion about anything or 2) they are just trying to advance the same tired Marxist agenda in another stealthy fashion. But it really doesn’t matter if some of their claims are so incredible that most people are more likely to laugh at them than spit on them. Keep that in mind.
