Obama Revives Birther Controversy to Rally Supporters
National Review ^ | April 11, 2014 | Andrew Johnson

Posted on 04/12/2014 5:33:33 AM PDT by McGruff

Democrats are reaching deep in to their bag of tricks ahead of this fall’s midterms. While Harry Reid has spent the past month railing against the Koch brothers, President Obama resorted to taking on birtherism on Friday.

While speaking at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference in New York, he revisited the controversy surrounding his birth certificate while discussing the various types of identification residents can provide ahead of voting.

“Just to be clear, I know where my birth certificate is, but a lot of people don’t,” he quipped to a cheering audience.

“You remember that? That was crazy,” the president laughed. “That was some crazy stuff — I hadn’t thought about that in a while.”

Interesting observation, but could backfire.

What's that saying, "Desperate people do desperate things"?

I see it differently. He’s more like an arsonist who comes back to watch the fire.

I believe you're right. It's irresistible fun for him. Same for selling coffee mugs with his BC printed on them.

Putting "African" on the BC for "Race" could be just stupidity on the forger's part, but I've come to believe it was done to tweak people who know what's been/being done, but can't do a damn thing about it.

He's untouchable. Neener, neener, neener...

I might have to get me one of those! Of course, it would mean something different for me than for the intended audience.

barry’ll sure be thinkin’ about the fraudulent birth certificate on May 26th, when Sheriff Joe announces the results of his cold case posse....May 26th is his latest projection for the release. 6 weeks, 2 days.

Let me guess. Arpaio needs more donations to keep his investigation alive, right? I’m getting tired of the dangling carrot trick. Either show what you got or shut the hell up, Arpaio.

Probably manufactured like he was.... in a test tube. One part Satan, one part Soros, one part Stanley Ann Durham, with a dash of Frank Marshall Davis to finish it off...

You’ve never run an investigation have you? I have been a part of fraud investigations, both as an indian and a chief. Unlike internet prosecutors, actual law enforcement cannot accuse the sitting president half-cocked. Considering his target controls the federal government and has extreme influence over state and foreign governments too, this investigation has moved at warp speed. If Sheriff Joe truly has something “universe shattering” I’m as anxious to know what he has as anyone in this country, but I’m mature enough to know justice doesn’t move on my schedule. I also recognize the roadblocks to the truth may ultimately prove insurmountable. I appreciate anyone with power trying to expose the criminal cabal running this country. Few have the courage. You are demeaning patriots.

Also, Sheriff Joe isn’t doing all that much talkng.

You really don't want to go there, buddy...

One thing we do know for sure, though. It isn't posted on the White House web site, and never was.

If that’s true, of all people you should be more thoughtful. You should realize the forces he is up against.

Either Sheriff Joe is a patriot or part of a criminal conspiracy himself. Until proven otherwise, I believe he is a patriot. If he’s not a patriot, there was never any real hope of exposing Obama anyway.

More like an arsonist pretending to be a fireman.

I have worked on extremely complex cases; one took almost 3 years alone. I have also worked on many government corruption cases. I know the mindsets of politicians (they are narcissists that try to put out the image they are invincible while quaking in their boots because just about everyone of them are liars and have skeletons in their closets), the roadblocks they throw up and the collusive elements the investigators face. My problem is the dangling carrot syndrome. Stop stringing us along with supposed dates that you are going to reease the big news and just show us something when you are ready. If I were them I would say nothing more about the proposed dates

To the president, show me your birth certificate. Nothing you have proffered could pass a security background check. Certainly not the one I have to pass.

I play my cards close to the vest, so I wouldn’t use the phrase “universe shattering information” and I wouldn’t drop dates either. On the surface it seems rather foolish, which makes me wonder if it’s part of a strategy.

“Remember all that? That was crazy! Ha ha ha ha ha!”

Seriously? You putting up an Internet pastiche of combined documents that could never have been real (they didn’t HAVE layers in 1961) finished the subject? That’s the old Hillary trick. “Been debated to death, it’s history.”

“Obama ‘“Just to be clear, I know where my birth certificate is, but a lot of people don’t,”’”
Just another Obama lie; and a bad one at that.

Unless you add words that aren’t there, this statement means “a lot of people don’t know where MY (Obama’s) birth certificate is.” [and that’s true...]

He can’t help laughing in our stupid white faces. But he worries about his identity problem constantly. You can bet no flunky speechwriter put this in the script.
