Rush: Obama 'afraid' of eligibility question?
World Net Daily ^ | April 29, 2010 | WND

Posted on 04/29/2010 11:02:39 AM PDT by Smokeyblue

The website Media Matters is highlighting a comment from talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh in which he explains he can understand President Barack Obama's sensitivity to a state requirement for documentation of citizenship.

"Maybe he's afraid somebody's going to ask him for his," stated Limbaugh on his program Wednesday.

He was commenting on the president's use of the word "papers" as in "Show me your papers" regarding the new Arizona state law cracking down on illegal aliens in the state.

"The use of the word 'papers.' I mean Obama? Understandable," comments Limbaugh. "Papers equals Nazi. Your papers please. It equals Nazi. That's why Obama's using the term. I can understand Obama being touch on the subject of producing your papers."

"Maybe he's afraid somebody's going to ask him for his," Limbaugh said.

Rush: Obama 'afraid' of eligibility question? Talk-radio icon suggests prez 'touchy on the subject of producing your papers'

From the article:

According to a HotAir.com report, the president has commented, "You can try to make it really tough on people who look like they, quote, unquote look like illegal immigrants. One of the things that the law says is that local officials are allow to ask somebody who they have a suspicion might be an illegal immigrant for their papers – but you can imagine if you are a Hispanic American in Arizona, your great, great grandparents may have been there before Arizona was even a state. But now suddenly if you don't have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you're going to be harassed, that's something that could potentially happen."

Here is a surefire way to figure out who the crimaliens are. Wear a black tee-shirt with the letters I.C.E. and an official looking logo to just about any Home Depot. The ones who turn and run are the crimaliens.

Methinks the Obama eligibility issue is beginning to gain momentum. Clarence Thomas has talked about it, Rush is talking about it, Arizona just passed a law about it and a few other states look like they’ll follow suit.

Apparently one of the side effects of suffering from the mental illness know as "Progresivism" is that it destroys any trace of a sense of humor.

Rush had a joke he repeated several times. Here’s a quote from June 10, 2009:

“RUSH: What do Obama and God have in common? Neither has a birth certificate. How do they differ? God does not think he’s Obama.”

This is roughly similar. A brief joke, told in a sentence or two, and dismissable as, well, a joke.

It seems evident that Rush does not want to get into this issue at any length, even to describe what other people are saying about it, much less what he thinks about it.

But he has touched on it gingerly with these occasional brief jokes.

A very big point that Rush made today -

the communists used class envy to pit people against each other for their own power,
the nazis used race,

0bama uses both.

Obambi won't be able to dodge the questions, and or filabuster it away during debates leading up to the 2012 election. And why did he have to turn in his law degree. That is really an odd thing to do unless a person did something really bad, or is hiding something really bad! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rush brings up the issue every now and then.

“So we are up to 16 different ways where I have to prove to the New York City and state tax authorities where I have been every day not just the work week for three years, but it has been this way for the past twelve years. Barack Obama has yet to prove that he is a citizen! All he has to do is show his birth certificate. ...I have to show them 14 different ways to who the hell I am. “

Here is something I like to post from time to time:
 
 
Let them claim there is no long form.
 
1st.  They and everyone has said all along the COLB is an abstract.  A COLB is a walkup document, meaning you can walk up to the desk, ask for your BC and they will provide an abstract, called a COLB in about 10 minutes.  That means there is a long form and Hawaii statutes, starting at (318)
 
2nd.  Hawaii already said they have seen Barry O.'s vital records and issued two statements - blah, blah, blah, right?
 
3rd.  Barry O. never had to show his long form BC ever, in his life, for anything?  Like obtaining a passport.  That one document is better than a drivers license.  It saying to the world you are who is contained in the passport document, which is based on an investigation of your background and YOU MUST provide a Birth Certificate as foundational proof of who YOU say you are.  From there the State Department does their background check on you and if you are who you say you are with no ammendments, modifications or whatever to your identity they issue it clean. 
 
Most adults can go to a desk or filing cabinet in his house and produce a birth certificate in a few minutes?
 

Barry O. tried to pass of something that was inconsistent with what the rest of have and know to be a “Birth Certificate”.

The so called COLB has many flaws with it:

  • His father’s race could never have been listed as “African”.  That was not the nomenclature at all, in the 1960’s.  So that begins the suspicion of a fraudulent document.
  •  The COLB is also cropped in many of the pictures that claim it is a scan.  If it is a scan, why not leave the document and size intact?
  • The COLB also has no artifacts such paper folds.  A scan does not make those disappear and in fact will highlight them.
  • The COLB that is scanned mysteriously does not show the Seal of Hawaii.  Why?  Because it was computer generated and not scanned.  Guess they forgot to add that back in.
  • More over, many of us are concerned and want to know why he wasted time producing a document that is inconsistent with what we know a Birth Certificate looks like.

 The best part and even more confusing is why he didn't release any of the three Birth Certificates we know already existed before 2007.

  • His kindergarten records and the BC, that should be there, have mysteriously disappeared.
  • The BC he used to get into college, apply for loans and most definitely used for his passport. That wasn't available?
  • Why couldn't he just present the one he found among his mother's belongings upon her death.   He waxed on and wondered about it and his father in one of his books.  Why not post that one?

Those were most certainly BC’s and not a COLB. There is no reason to create confusion but, for the fact he is hiding something. That something will be discovered, though and this is a long process.

“I discovered this article, folded away among my birth certificate and old vaccination forms, when I was in high school. It’s a short piece, with a photograph of him. No mention is made of my mother or me, and I’m left to wonder whether the omission was intentional on my father’s part, in anticipation of his long departure. Perhaps the reporter failed to ask personal questions, intimidated by my father’s imperious manner; or perhaps it was an editorial decision, not part of the simple story that they were looking for. I wonder, too, whether the omission caused a fight between my parents.”

From “Dreams From My Father” (Pg. 26 last paragraph)

So with all these Birth Certificates lying around, why did he feel it necessary to produce a "Certification of Live Birth" that is inconsistent with a Birth Certificate and wholly lacking all of the information you would find, in you know, a Birth Certificate?

He seemed to have some emotional attachment to the Birth Certificate found among his mother’s belongings.  Why wouldn’t he just slap that one up, for all the world to see?

It seemed important that he found a document that is called a “Birth Certificate” and it is highly unlikely he would not know what one looks like.

Hope no one brings up some house fire that vaporized his BC.  That was in 1972 and none of the documents listed here would have been affected by that “fishy” event.

Rush might not be sure which way to go on air about this issue. The jokes might indicate where his sympathies lie, though.

It's not a radio-friendly issue. It's one thing to see evidence of forgery, but on the radio, he'd have to describe it. The other aspects of the issue are complex and/or lengthy. The grandmother saying he was born in Kenya; the Mombasa birth certificate; the news stories that said Obama was Kenyan-born; the unresolved questons about whether Obama was adopted by Lolo Soetoro and is legally named Barry Soetoro; the stonewalling by the Department of Health in Hawaii despite having legal ways to confirm the legimacy of Obama's alleged COLB; Vattel, Blackstone, Wong Kim Ark, Minor v. Happersett and how to define natural born citizen; Obama father being a British subject/Kenyan citizen and how that naturally descended to Obama .... there's just too much involved to get to the point quickly and succinctly. And it's not really a good TV issue either, for the same reasons.

I don't know exactly but I've read that he relinquished his law degree just prior to his running for the presidency began. And also, Michelle Obambi relinquished hers also. Bill Clinton had to relinquish hid degree as part of his punishment for lying to the Grand Jury regarding hid Lweinskigate Scandal. We think Obambi turn his in due to the fact that he lied on the application by not disclosing an alias he has used, namely his REAL NAME, WHICH IS BARRY SOETTRO

I think they were going to just let it ride until 2012 - but then they found out what an egomaniacal, muslim, racist, communist, dictator wannabee little Colonel O has turned out to be and they need to start amping it up quick. They are probably running around offices now shouting for the evidence to be brought to them - “Who knew he was this bats*&t crazy?”

He, also, lied on his resume. He wasn’t a professor but, merely, an instructor. And not a very well-liked one at that - he was considered lazy, was a no-show at meetings. Just another one of his ‘over his pay-grade’ moments.
