Ah-ha! The plot thins.
 
2012-06-20 03:30:11 PM
Well... points for creativity. Not everyday someone inverts the birther story....

The co-chairman of Mitt Romney's campaign in Arizona, Bennett made the comments recently at an event where he pleaded for local Republicans to unite behind their party's presumptive nominee for president. He told them a world under Obama is "just very, very scary."

No red flags, here. Nope, None at all.

Collegers?
 
2012-06-20 03:35:03 PM
And that earth shattering revelations would mean what, exactly?
 
2012-06-20 03:35:33 PM
I'm pretty sure lying on an application under this Federal student grant program is a Class D felony which would prevent him being POTUS.

Either he lied about being born in Kenya or he really was born there. Either way Palin is automatically POTUS and Fartbongo has to get his wife to tear up that commie garden in the back yard of the White House.

So I see, Now the Birther mess is Obama's fault, of course. It was never the delusionsal straw grasped at by finge racists who couldn't accept a black president, no no, it was a deception Obama somehow created (little weak on the details here Kenny, how exactly did Obama cause the rumor his birth certificate was fake now?)

That one kinda jumped out at me also.

From the Department of Making shiat Up:

I believe Ken Bennett is a genetically engineered pile of human dung that was given life in a secret Republican lab.
 
2012-06-20 03:46:05 PM
From the comments: Okay, come on people, say it with me: "You can't spell 'crazy' without AZ."
 
2012-06-20 04:01:06 PM
Barack Obama only claimed to be Kenyan to get that extra paycheck money

2012-06-20 04:12:27 PM
Is Ken Bennett the same guy who claimed he didn't ACTUALLY think Obama was a foreigner, he was just verifying the birth certificate becuase some of his constituents were "concerned".

So....kenny...who's "Concerned" about this now?

Where is the long form treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo? Obviously Arizona isn't qualified to be a state and belongs to Mexico.

Gee --- if there were only a way to settle this once and for all......like releasing college records and transcripts.

but if you lie when you are 18, you have to maintain that lie until you out of office.

dumbass tag? More like Obvious

You'd think Broomstick Bennett would be trying to keep a lower profile.

that's what you birther rejects said about his birth certificate.

It still amazes me that someone pays 5 dollars a month to be a moronic troll.

It doesn't matter. He could release them, at which point morons would simply claim the colleges in question were in on the giant conspiracy to put a half-black Kenyan secret Muslim socialist Manchurian Candidate into office.

That's the real issue. The birthers have run out of steam, and need more material from which to work. Their silly ploy didn't work last election, when it might have mattered, and they know full well it won't work this election. Even better, of course, is that in four more years, they will be entirely irrelevant.

Yeah, like releasing the long form birf record resolved all those questions.

FTFA: "So if there was weird stuff going on," he said, "I actually think it was happening back in his college days because I think he has spent $1.5 or $2 million through attorneys to have all of the college records and all of that stuff sealed. So if you're spending money to seal something, that's probably where the hanky panky was going on."

"Ken, what would you say that you do here?"

"So, what you do here, as secretary of state of Arizona, is you take wild allegations about Obama not being born in the United States, from the crazies, and you bring them to the American people. Well then, I have to ask, why couldn't the crazies take these allegations to the school?"

It was funny when asked about 0bama's birthplace answered with the tepid "As far as I know..." instead of the definitive "oh course he was born in the US".

I see - so a momentary occurrence of derp validates four years (and counting) of derp gone wild.

Why it's legal for state officials to run political campaigns for others, I'll never know.

"Bennett, the No. 2 elected official in Arizona just below Gov. Jan Brewer (R), was forced last month to apologize for embarrassing his home state after enduring nearly a week of nationwide ridicule for threatening to keep Obama off the ballot unless he saw more proof that the president was born in Hawaii."

Is AZ in play this year?

For all the money he allegedly spent to cover it up, one would think that it would have been cheaper just to pay back the difference.

The Romney campaign officially endorses Birtherism. Someone needs to pester Romney with a question as to why his campaign chairman is running around spreading birther rumors.

If Obama outperforms 2008, it'll be one of the first to flip, but it won't decide the election.

It has some very slim chance of going for Obama, but if that happens he'll likely already be winning in so many other states that it would just be running up the score.

Nope, people have literally run for president from a jail cell. Senate and house, too. In the latter cases, iirc, a couple have actually won. Felony convictions don't prevent you from running for or taking the office of the presidency and allegations short of formal charges _definitely_ don't.

What a bunch of pantywaists... It's not "scary" at all. I've been through it(Along with the rest of you) for a little over 3 years now, and there are no night terrors. I'm better off than I was when Bush was leaving office, Obama hasn't come to take away my guns, and there's no Socialism on my street...

Come to think of it, the reason I had so much trouble buying ammo for about two years was because the Repubs were "scared" also... What are you farksticks going to freak out about and drive the price up on now?

Um, intentionally starting something specifically designed to plague someone throughout their career is not what I'd call a "momentary occurrence".

People who might ask that kind of question aren't allowed near Romney at any time.
 
2012-06-20 06:06:20 PM
This clown already apologized once for embarrassing the state, and here he is at it again. And of course, once again, there won't be the slightest hint of condemnation from Mitt "Coward" Romney towards his batshiat insane state co-chair.
