It absolutely amazes me.

People absolutely believe that Obama was born outside the USA, but his parents fraudulently announced the news of his birth in two Hawaii newspapers in the pursuit of making him a natural-born citizen for the sole purpose of ensuring his eligibility to become President one day. Because even on the day of his birth, they knew exactly what his ambitions and character would be, and were able to perfectly predict that forty years later, he would have the intelligence, work ethic, and desire to run for President.

Yet the same brains which believe this theory about Obama see no problem dismissing North Koreans as being gullible fools for buying the story that a double rainbow appeared in the sky when Kim Jong-Il was born.

I just wish the Dems could get about 10 people inside the Republican convention and have them start some birther chant like show your birth certificate. You know within minutes probably half the people at the convention would be repeating the chant. I have a feeling that seeing something like that at the convention live on T.V would drive any sane person that is still on the fence away from the GOP.

That's not fair, I know not one but TWO progressive and intelligent people from Sioux City, which is about as far west as Iowa goes.

Then again, maybe there's a reason they're in New York now.

No, just to get it started. I'm pretty sure the GOP will make sure to tell all attendants to be on their best behavior, and by that no mention of the birth certificate. So without a little push they may not show their colors, but once a few people start it will be live a snowball rolling down hill.

NowhereMon: Dog whistle fund raising. Bachmann's crazy barrage last month netted her a cool million, now it's King's turn. The silly thing is that they don't really need to do it. King and Bachmann spend as much money defending their safe red districts as most Senators do for state wide contests that are usually much more competitive. It's a weird strategy.

They don't need the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, but do you stop when you've got enough to pay bills and buy beer? No. You want more.

So he found the Western Union telegraph log announcing Obama's birth that originated from Kenya?

Oh, he still has nothing. It's religion all over again. Can't argue religion with zealots.
 
2012-08-01 03:32:38 PM
We need to Jujutsu some more crazy into Steve King on this.

Let's start a letter writing campaign to Rep King and say that the birth certificate controversy is just a decoy to keep him from seeing how Obama is usng chemtrails and HAARP as a time machine to go back in time in his Black Funkadelic Helicopter to change history.

So far Obama has managed to change history so that the Union won the civil war and he got LBJ to somehow pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The birth announcements and long form birth certificate are childs play compared to what Obama REALLY has going on.

Sgt Otter: Bloody William: I love that the conspiracy theory has gone beyond "he has a fake history" to "his fake history is so perfect it was crafted since his birth to make him a decades-long Manchurian candidate designed to take down the country."

It's like saying "I'm not saying it's aliens, but that's because the Illuminati did such a great job at covering up the aliens."

Look, three years before the Civil Rights Act, a pregnant teenage girl was convinced her half-black son with a bizarre name was going to run for President in the 21st Century, so she engineered a conspiracy that fooled every intelligence agency on the planet, with no training.

Take off your blinders, libdong.


Yep, it would have been significantly easier knowing that your kid needed an American birth certificate to just fly to Hawaii and have the birth there. But, as everyone knows proper Marxist have to be born in third world countries, so what else was she going to do.
 
2012-08-01 03:35:07 PM

czei: "It would have been awfully hard to fraudulently file the birth notice of Barack Obama being born in Hawaii and get that into our public libraries and that microfiche they keep of all the newspapers published. That doesn't mean there aren't some other explanations on how they might've announced that by telegram from Kenya."

Sure, there's other explanations:

1. Time travel

2. The Ministry of Magic used charmed telegrams that fly across the ocean and insert themselves into newspapers.

3. A vast left-wing conspiracy.

Not that it's a birther thing, but I was talking with a not-incredibly-close friend the other day and I commented about how people vote for people they want to have a beer with, not the person most qualified or most likely to share their views. She said that's why Obama was having such a hard time, because Muslims can't drink. She wasn't kidding.

This is a woman who has a college degree from a respected school, is super-liberal, and voted for Obama. To her credit, she didn't care that (in her mind) he is Muslim.

So it's not just conservative idiots who think stupid and oft-disproved things about our president, it's...I don't even know.

Well one of the really big "holes" is that they created this conspiracy in the USA in 1961 - before MLK really started going, before "I have a dream" and all that, they somehow managed to project that in the future Obama would have a chance of being elected President just as long as he was natural born. Surely a conspiracy hatched in 1961 would have only started with a white kid, as the idea of a non-white or non-male President would have been ridiculous back then - certainly to hatch a plot around, I imagine a few people had mentioned the idea before that but to actually put effort into grooming a future US president from birth in 1961 and choosing a "mulatto" would be truly bizarre.

Obama put out the announcement himself after he traveled back in time to his birthday. Or, maybe the muslim infiltrators got into Hawaii's system and planted it there. Or, I don't know, maybe martians were involved somehow.

Not to mention that even if, in 1961, you were going to choose a "mulatto" child to groom for president from birth, you'd certainly make sure that the child was born in the United States. You'd also make sure that the child had a back story that was as American as apple pie, and sending the child off to live in Indonesia doesn't remotely fit with the kind of All American history that you'd want if you were trying to groom a child to become the first black president. You certainly would have made sure not to give him such a foreign sounding name.
