(Info Wars)   When Republicans say Barack Obama was born in Kenya, they are called racists. When the AP reported Barack Obama as Kenyan-born in 2004, that's how you sell a story. Kind of like the political version of A Million Little Pieces   (infowars.com) divider line 314

Philip Francis Queeg: Garet Garrett: Question remains: where did all these people get the misimpression he was Kenyan-born?

Because his Father was Kenyan?


My father is Lithuanian. No one thinks I was born there.

Dimensio: Overfiend: I do wonder if President Obama said this though:

FTA: This report explains the context of the oft cited debate, between Obama and Keyes in the following Fall, in which Keyes faulted Obama for not being a "natural born citizen", and in which Obama, by his quick retort, "So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency"

Several "birthers" are searching for the recorded video of this debate. I am certain that their diligent research will produce results in the near future.


I've heard that the guy who has the Michelle Obama "Whitey" tape has a copy of it.

Crabs_Can_Polevault: Geotpf: The mods must be really bored today to be greenlighting three year old birther articles from infowars.com.

No, you have to understand -- Drew's totally in the tank for Obama. That's why the modmins are greenlighting all these articles: to undermine the birther movement by unfairly quoting all the things they actually said in some sort of effort to make them look stupid. It's a really scummy, scurrilous attack, linking to all of their blather in context where it can't be judged properly by history.

OK, I'm sick of this. I mean, I really think Obama is doing a good job, but I'm tired of pretending that this isn't an issue. It's clear that something fishy is going on with his eligibility. When I worked on his campaign in 2008, we paid a lot of money to local media to keep the story quiet, but I don't think that's going to work this time. If you guys keep talking about this, and really make the election about this issue, I'm not sure if Obama will even be able to stay on the ballot.

You guys just won't quit. That's why I love you republicans. Just when the independents were beginning to forget what idiots the Republican birther wing is, they bite on this so hard and remind the independents of the insanity embodied by today's G.O.P. Do you really think that Obama doesn't want the Republicans to talk this up? He's playing you. So far, they haven't fallen for it. As much as I think Romney is a political fool, even he won't touch this issue. That's how much of a loser for the Republicans this is, even Romney recognizes it. But prove me wrong, Republicans, go forth, and demand that Romney makes a statement regarding this new "bombshell!" Make him take up the birther cause or face disaffection.

I think It's entirely possible for Barack to believe, for the majority of his life, that he was born in Kenya and used that to his benefit.

But later on found out he wad born in HI.

Mix ups happen all the time.

Besides, there's too much energy is being wasted on this. There are bigger fish to fry.

You can dislike Obama without being racist. However, with how exhaustively this issue has been explored, you can't be a birther at this point without being racist (or, I suppose, incredibly stupid). End of story.

Also, Occam's Razor states that the right answer is usually the simplest. Now, the simplest answer here is that Obama was born in Hawaii, but a test printing erroneously thought Obama was his dad (they have the same name, you see) and printed that instead.

Make sense?

I do think this new stuff with the AP saying he was born in Kenya and the literary agency saying he was born in Kenya is intriguing. Somewhere along the line Obama lied about where he was born. Why? Was it to get special privileges he wasn't entitled to for college?

It's no wonder Hillary's people brought it up in the first place. The man's a fraud no matter where he was born. And I know that his Mom was a citizen so that automatically makes him one. It doesn't mean he has the right to lie for certain privileges in college. And if he did it to make himself look "more exotic" then so be it, but then he has to admit he was ashamed to be born here and he wanted to appear better than everyone else.

But no, instead of questioning things, we're just supposed to be good little citizens and never question anything. To do otherwise is racist because Obama is God's gift to humanity and we must always remember that.
