Obama Cracks Birther Joke With Young Hawaiian in Florida: ‘You Have a Birth Certificate?’
The Blaze ^ | 9/9/12 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 09/09/2012 10:09:16 AM PDT by Mozilla

It’s that birther thing again.

President Barack Obama was at an Orlando sports bar, snapping a University of Florida Gators’ sign, sipping a pint and working a crowd when he walked up to a table with five children. According to the Associated Press, one of the adults pointed to one of the boys– 7-year-old Andre Wupperman of Orlando– and informed the president that he was born in the president’s native state of Hawaii.

The president, seemingly delighted, greeted the boy with a Shaka sign, the pinky and thumb gesture typical of Hawaiian culture. The boy gestured back.

“You were born in Hawaii?” the president said. Then he added teasingly: “You have a birth certificate?”

The patrons at Gator’s Dockside, clearly aware of the discredited claims that Obama was not born in the United States, reportedly broke up laughing.

When Mitt Romney made a birther joke in late August, the Obama campaign quickly released a video saying Mitt Romney was “distracting from real issues.”

It would have been great if the kid said,”yes, I’ll show you mine if you show me yours”.

0bama is using Virginia Sunahara’s BIRTH RECORD, INCLUDING HER DATE OF BIRTH. He wasn’t even born on August 4th, 1961.

Given Obama’s inability to think on his feet, this quip sounds like a set up to me...just one more effort to make light of the issue. Wouldn’t surprise at all if the kid’s parents behind this *chance* meeting turned out to be huge Obama supporters.

I would guess between November 29 and December 17, 1960.

So 0bama cracks a birther joke and he is hilarious. Romney was evil when he said no one asks for his birth certificate. So lad I have the libs to tell me what is funny and why is not.

Like most other inoculations; you need the occasional booster shot. By joking about it occasionally, Obama is essentially setting up “birthers” for ridicule. Alinsky had rules for this:

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.

...

“Mind if I borrow it?”

A few months back he was in Oklahoma for an event and a elderly woman mentioned she was born in the same hospital as Ø and he very meanly snapped back “You gotta birth certificate”

Yeah. He thinks about. He knows he is hiding the truth with forged and fake documents.

I would simply respond “Do you have any jobs?”

At this point, this same old drumbeat is getting stale. We demanded his birth certificate, so he made up a fake birth certificate. I want to get him on something he can't fake.

I want somebody to ask him one question: "Was your birth father an American citizen when you were born, or not?"

I don't think anyone's claimed that Osama's father was a US citizen.I think the claim is "US citizen mother + born in Hawaii = natural born citizen".I have heard it argued that "natural born citizen" requires *both* parents to be US citizens.

BOTH. He is lying today just as he has lied his whole life.

Example: Do you think unemployment is just a tab above 8%? Everything out of this government is a lie.

"obamma is rubbing this into every one face. He knows he has won on the issue."

Who says? The strange thing is that a negative has been proved (fraudulent BC), but it has not been proved where he was actually born (granny is delusional).

On the contrary, Hussein has lost the issue because he floated a forgery for a birth certificate. Hawaii’s governor has admitted that he can’t find any birth certificate for Hussein.

Of course the kid has a birth certificate, unlike obie, he was born in America.

Do you base this on the erotic photo session which our President’s mother had with Frank Marshall Davis in Hawaii or her alleged ‘beach’ photo showing her not to be pregnant? Please elaborate.

He looks older than his classmates. His official birth date is conveniently nine months into her 18th year, and earlier and we’d know that she was under-aged when he was conceived.
As to the month and day? Just a silly guess based on his probable birth sign: Ophiuchus, the Serpent-bearer...

Discredited claims? Sounds like a mainstream media mantra to me. Time to remove 'The Blaze' from my bookmarks.

It's like the picture of him sitting in the Oval Office with his feet up on the desk, soles of his shoes to the camera, or his middle finger salute during debates. The insults are there to see for those who know what they mean. They are visual "dog whistles."

You should know by now that Glenn Beck was never a fan of the Birther issue. I guess his people agree with him at The Blaze.

This as always been a curious question for me. I wonder who we would test Øbama against (alleged relatives) and what would it prove?

So, we’re back to the Clinton /Web Hubble/Chelsa parent thing.

The solution is not very hard. Collect Obama DNA and compare it to a known sample from a sibling or close living relative.

All it takes is money and a good investigator. Since it is easier to bloviate and pray about it, I doubt it will ever happen. It never did with Bubba and that would have been much easier
