Ex-Dem guv: Suppose Obama 'not born in U.S.'
WND ^ | May 30, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 05/30/2012 10:17:14 AM PDT by Smokeyblue

Democrat personality David Paterson, former governor of New York and now a talk-radio host on WOR in New York City, has suggested Barack Obama could be ineligible for the Oval Office and “got away” with it.

And Paterson linked Obama’s actions to treason.

On his show yesterday, he was asserting, along with NBC Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd, that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney should have distanced himself more from developer Donald Trump and his doubts about Obama’s eligibility.

“Even if he wasn’t born in the United States at this point,” Paterson said. “It’s kind of like he got away with it.”

Before the comments, Paterson and Todd had agreed that Romney was doing his campaign no benefit by not distancing himself from Trump, who just this week blasted CNN for not reporting on the issue more accurately.

The billionaire businessman told lead political anchor Wolf Blitzer the network would improve its dismal viewer ratings if it would only report the issue of Obama’s eligibility to be president “accurately.”

“Obama does not like the issue of where he was born,” he told Blitzer in the interview. “There’s something that bothers Obama very much. I will tell you: It’s not an issue that he likes talking about, so what he does is use reverse psychology on people like you. … He does not like that issue because it’s hitting very close to home. You know it, and he knows it – but you don’t report it accurately.”

Even if he wasn’t born in the United States at this point,” Paterson said. “It’s kind of like he got away with it.”

He continued, “A lot of people get away with a lot of things.”

He did get away with it, and he was aided and abeited by the us federal government, Hawaii, and virtually all of the us media, and every last stinking one of them should be held accountable and sent to prison for a damn long time.

The Unabomber got away with killing for a long time. Was that a reason for the FBI to give him a pass on mail bombings? I know that’s an unfair comparison, since Ted Kaczynski only killed three people and injured 20 more, far less damage than Obama has done, but it was the parallel that came to my mind.

And there it is. Obama knows the snowball is pretty big so the call went out.....start downplaying the significance of the NBC requirement and take the ,"see, he wasn't eligible and nothing bad happened so there's no reason for the requirement" stance.

I've said it before and I'll say it again....maybe we need to erect a gallows on the mall...the visual might get the point across.

No, he hasn’t “gotten away with it.” If he truly was not born in this country he needs to be ceremoniously thrown in jail and all his signed legislation nullified.

Don’t forget the Republican establishment deal to allow Obama to establish the precedent so Rubio, Jindal, and Haley could be eligible too should the opportunity arise.

A lot of these leftist media whores act like they are afraid Obama hasn’t gotten away with his citizenship scam. If this were such a non issue for Obamamites, it would be ignorable, but the left can’t ignore it because it scares them.

Put him in Lt. Col. Lakin’s old cell in Leavenworth or send him to Gitmo.

Along with all his accomplices. This was never any joke.

If not eligible, Obama and co-conspirators/abettors must be punished. Legislation signed by the One will stand as his signature is not necessary; if he does not sign, the legislation becomes law any way. Executive ordeers, appointments and regulations made by the appointees, fines levied as a result of those regulations etc. is another thing. It would be a Constitutional cricis and schmozzle of Biblical proportions.

Romney is right to not touch this issue with a ten-foot pole. It's got "Alinksy ridicule trap" written all over it.

State-controlled media is drumming it up. Trump didn't want to talk about it. Wolf Blitzed INSISTED he talk about it.

The Choom Gang media thinks this issue is a winner for the usurper.

What are they smoking?

Is there a statue of limitation on Treason?

The U.S. government has a five year statute of limitations on all crimes non- capital. As treason is a capital offense, there is none.

There has been some FR posts covering allegations by Clinton supporters that two pro Clinton supporters died (one by a shooting in the victim’s office and the other a heart attack while she was driving). These individuals were key people who could have challenged Obama’s delegates at the Dem convention in 2008. They were threaten not to do it, and they ended up dead. Also alleged was Bill Clinton was going to get involve until the Obama thugs implied that his daughter Chelsea can get hurt.
For me if the BC is proven false, and the above allegation are true, I be very interested in who in the Dem leadership, party or powerful supporters would be willing to be this ruthless, murderous and why? More important are they still there to repeat the murderous and thuggish process again? America needs to find out fast because if all these allegations are true, never in modern times have political operatives crossed a line this big.

When is Romney going to make his birth certificate public and ceremoniously register to run for president and challenge oblablaloon to do the same?

How could oblablaloon seriously resist then?

Ditto for transcripts and such.

Romney released his original birth certificate yesterday. Fox News had one line on it and a photo of Romney holding it up. To my knowledge, no other news outlet mentioned it.

Given that Obama's first term is nearly over, yes, I'd have to agree that Paterson's statement is somewhat accurate.

Legislation signed by the One will stand as his signature is not necessary; if he does not sign, the legislation becomes law any way.

Actually, IMHO, the legislation signed by the Obama would not stand, because the US Constitution says that every bill must be presented to the president before it can ever become law. If Obama is ineligible for the presidency, then he was never legally president, so if Congress presented legislation to Obama, it would not satisfy the US Constitution's requirement in Article I Sec. 7 that all legislation be presented to the president before it becomes law. Thus any unsigned legislation that would be sent to Obama would not automatically become law without his Obama's signature, because the legislation was never presented to the president as required by the US Constitution.

Unsigned/unvetoed legislation only becomes law without the president's signature, if ten days (excluding Sundays) elapse after it was presented to the president. If Obama is ineligible for the presidency, unsigned legislation would not automatically become law, because it was never presented to the president as required by the Constitution.

US Constitution Article I. Sec.7

shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States;...If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

What I hear starting is the trope that Romney isn’t distancing himself from Trump’s birthed claims. Romney is most definitely distancing himself and the MSM wants the sheeple to believe otherwise.

Did they ask Obama to distance himself from James Hoffa when he threated violence against the Tea Party?

Did they ask Obama to distance himself from Al Sharpton who lied about thousands of things?

No, so this should be ignored.

"America needs to find out fast because if all these allegations are true, never in modern times have political operatives crossed a line this big."

What? where were you when Clintoon was in office. They had to come up with a special term for things that were happening in Arkansas- Arkancide.

A guy who knows Clinton dies by suicide with two bullet holes in the back of his head? Arkancide.

Clintoon and Janet Reno torch a bunch of children, and the only cops that were killed happen to be both former Clinton bodyguards (and both die from 'friendly fire')

Two boys stumble on a Clinton drug smuggling operation at Mena Airport and then the 'fall asleep' on top of railroad tracks... (not a comfortable place to sleep)

Ron Bron threatens to spill his guts if he gets arrested? His plane goes down in a freak 'accident'. He is later said to have had a bullet hole in the back of his head. A nurse who was on-board too, said Brown was alive, dies from a cut in her femoral artery on the airlift to the hospital- when she originally walked away from the accident almost injury free.

There are many more

The democraps are filled with murderers and thieves

Where every he was born Obama was likely never eligible because his alleged father was not a US citizen. This however would have taken a court challenge before he was on any ballot and the issue was not pressed at the time by weak kneed RINOs.

However, if he was born in Kenya and illegally usurped the presidency he should be tried for treason along with everyone else in the Democratic party who certified his eligibility. This would precipitate the biggest constitutional crisis since the Civil War. Sadly I don't think the truth will be known until Obama is long gone from the political scene or when he is deposed from his Marxist dictatorship should we be dumb enough to re-elect him.

You have a point. I had not considered the “present to the President” part. If he is not eligible to hold the office, then he is not President and the legislation was not presented. Even a bigger problem. Small wonder that every Marxist and RINO want to stay away from the NBC question.

You can only impeach a legal president. Yes, but on the long, long shot that the world uncovers this fraud before 11/6/12, it may be that he has not committed any specific crime, or has violated any specific statute. For example, most states make it illegal to practice medicine without a license. So an medical imposter may do some time. But where is the statute about illegally impersonating a President or illegally representing that you are one etc?

Yes, Pelosi who certified may have committed a fraud, but she can argue that she relied on the State of Hawaii. Hawaii officials have parsed their words most carefully and with legal counsel so they are unlikely to see a jail cell.

It is like a Woody Allen film, a Zelig-type character campaigned, won, took the oaths (there were two remember?), celebrated big time, moved into the White House and proceeded to wreck the existing USA. A few zealots on the right took him to court, but so what? They could never get into the batter's box before they were sent back to the bench for not having 'standing', the insider's uniform for admission to the rigged game.

Perhaps, one should ask our Congress to pass a law which is simple, "Should either a sitting President or a sitting Vice President, be found to have falsified his Article I, Sec. 2 requirements for office, he or she can be tried for treason.

"Ah, but if he "got away with it", then he IS President."

There is no "getting away with being an illegal president.

"No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."

The requirements for the Presidency start out with two simple words, "No Person". This does not allow for anyone who sneaks by and is not eligible. If you are not eligible, you can NEVER be a legal President. Period.

Here come the trial balloons:

“It’s kind of like he got away with it.” = Awww, you tricked me, ha ha, good one. Okay, that's old news now, let's just move on to something else. How 'bout that Trayvon murder? THERE'S injustice!

The MSM is going to go full court press now stating that even if he isn't eligible it doesn't matter - any old white men who try to impeach him are racists, like the bitter white gun clinger who gunned down poor little five year old Trayvon who was holding a balloon and skittles, his bloody body laying there in the street, the balloon still tied to his chubby little innocent wrist.
