Huckabee on O'Reilly: Did Obama Get 'Foreign Student' Loans in College?
Friday, January, 20, 2012 | Kristinn

Posted on 01/20/2012 5:51:55 PM PST by kristinn

Appearing on the Fox News Channel's top-rated O'Reilly Factor this evening, former Arkansas Governer Mike Huckabee (R) suggested that President Barack Obama be challenged to prove whether he was treated as a "foreign student" in college.

Huckabee made the remark in the context of a discussion with host Bill O'Reilly on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, dithering over releasing his tax returns.

Huckabee, who ran for president in 2008, urged Romney to say that he would release his tax returns when Obama released his college transcripts--and his college admissions records to show whether Obama received loans as a "foreign student."

While some will accuse Huckabee of going 'birther', others will understand that Huckabee is referring to Obama being adopted and raised for a time in Indonesia by his mother's second husband, Lolo Soetoro, and whether Obama went to college as an Indonesian citizen to get advantageous treatment.

Expect the leftist media to have a conniption fit over this.

The issue of Obama refusing to release his college records was revisted this week by Fox's White House reporter Ed Henry who asked Obama spokesman Jay Carney about it at a daily briefing. Carney brushed off the question. Henry did not ask whether Obama went to college as a foreign student.

If it turns out Obama did go to college as a foreign student, it would lend credence to the argument that he does not meet the Constitutional mandate for natural born citizenship to be president.

I heard him say it and I must say it surprised me. Maybe they are going after this issue in 2012, GA has told Obama he has to appear in court on the 26th for his ballot challenge.

ruh-roh. Now see, this is something Newt would say to the media when it comes down to one to one against Obama. Romney would stick his finger in the air and test the direction of the media wind and NOT SAY A WORD. Ever.

Go Huckabee! I was watching, am still watching O’Reilly . . . I guess I better back up on the DVR and hear it.

Newt is a fearless warrior who will not shrink from airing the stinking load of soiled laundry that is the Obama administration. He will not be silenced, he cannot be intimidated, he stubbornly refuses to be controlled. He will say that which they dread to hear. He is their worst nightmare sprung to life.

From the article: “.....lend credence to the argument that he does not meet the constitutional mandate for natural born citizenship to be president.”

Neither “credence” nor the “argument” will be entertained by the media certainly, and so far neither will the qualifying entities who are suppose to oversee these qualifications of candidates.

If by "conniption fit" you mean "completely ignore it" then I agree.

It would be great if this question could get some wheels but I'm not holding my breath.

Wow! This is big! Huckabee really said that?
First the GA judge ruled that soetoro/soebarkah/obama has to appear in court to show his bc etc., now Hackabee openly challenges obozo’s college records?

All it takes is one honest official with the power to do the right thing, and the rest will follow!

Obozo is getting it from all sides - people, courts, media. The dam is bursting!

I received this in an e-mail this morning but I haven’t b een able to verify it’s validity...


Is Joe Biden going to be our interim President before the end of this year?

VERY QUIETLY OBAMA’S CITIZENSHIP CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURT

AP - WASHINGTON D.C. - In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama’s qualifications for the presidency, the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” has Released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College ... Released today, the transcript school indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.

This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama’s detractors have been seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first born in Kenya and there is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship, this is looking pretty grim. The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama’s legitimacy and qualification to serve as President article titled, “Obama Eligibility Questioned,” leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama’s first official visit to the U.K. In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama’s legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey .

This lawsuit claims Obama’s dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president.. Donofrio’s case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama’s citizenship or qualification to serve as president. Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama’s campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. Attorney general, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter...
LET OTHER FOLKS KNOW THIS NEWS, THE MEDIA WON’T!

Subject: RE: Issue of Passport? While I’ve little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue, Paul Hollrah over at FSM did so yesterday and believes the issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question: What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and Karachi ? So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981, without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later? And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and Karachi , what passport was he offering when he passed through Customs and Immigration? The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions, they must have answers. It makes the debate over Obama’s citizenship a rather short and simple one.

Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?
A : Yes, by his own admission.

Q: What passport did he travel under?
A: There are only three possibilities:

1) He traveled with a U.S. ... Passport,
2) He traveled with a British passport, or
3) He traveled with an Indonesian passport.

Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?

A: No. It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U.S. .. State Department’s “no travel” list in 1981.

Conclusion: When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport or an Indonesian passport. If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims.. And if he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967. Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a “natural born” American citizen between 1981 and 2008. Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.

If you Don’t care that Your President is not a natural born Citizen and in Violation of the Constitution, then Delete this, and then lower your American Flag to half-staff, because the U.S. Constitution is already on life-support, and won’t survive much longer.

If you do care then Forward this to as many patriotic Americans as you can,
because our country is being looted and ransacked

This is why Romney is wanting to withhold his tax returns until after he gets the nomination. (of course assuming he does) Then he will use the line against Obama “release your educational records and I’ll release my tax returns”.

This election needs to focus on issues. But if the MSM is going to play this gotcha crap about meaninless issues, then the repubs need to immediately “Newter” Obama and the media with this stuff. Right back atcha baby.

Men, especially young men in th 80’s, did not sit that close to each other unless they were “gay”.
We called them fags back then.
Gay was how they behaved in the 1890’s.

Obama's more than million dollar investment in keeping his personal documents secret and private will NEVER be questioned by the foot-kissing socialist/liberal/democrat media pawns. They will take his scorn as causing his image to be too stiff and cower in fear they might further upset/infuriate him. Media fully deserves the disrespect it is now receiving and will never again regain. Four years in office and Obama is still unvetted.

US citizens could travel to Pakistan in 1981. There was a travel advisory but not a “no travel” restriction.

For the record I do not believe that BHO is eligible to be President, but that part of the story is false.

Obama likely had an Indonesian passport which allowed him to travel to Pakistan in the 1980s when it was off limits to US citizens. Nothing would please me more than to have a ruling that Obama was never constitutionally eligible to be POTUS and his whole administration was illegal and a fraud.

I believe was just travel advisory. Which means you could go if you had a good reason, not sure an mere student would be allowed to go on US passport. A Indonesian passport would alleviate that problem.
