 "No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that I was born and raised."


-- Willard Mitt Romney, Aug, 24, 2012

What hurt the Republican Party is that they didn't tell the Birthers that they're batshiat crazy and should EABOD, they kept giving htem little winks and nudges like Rmoney's "joke" here.

I hear 0bama's REAL Kenyan birth certificate was being held in Benghazi, and that's why he had his terrorist friends, led by Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright, attack the compound and kill those brave Americans.

Thanks, 0bama.

Yup, I am about to say something about the Great Barack Obama Identity/Eligibility Scandal again. I know that this is one rich and urgent topic that doesn't see the light of day in certain so-called news outlets

Because it's neither a rich nor urgent topic, you loon.

I refer to the electronic image of a long-form 1961 Hawaiian birth certificate posted at the White House website. After studying various evidence and demonstrations (which I've written about in previous "forbidden" columns), I've concluded that this online image is in all probability a forgery.

Because you're a loon.

Aside from Alan Keyes, a former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. and a Republican candidate for the Senate and the presidency, no prominent Republican, <including> Sarah Palin, ever faced or raised the issue.

Sarah Palin three weeks ago: "More background checks?" Palin asked. "Dandy idea, Mr. President -- should've started with yours."

Came here to post that.  Also, I seem to recall many prominent GOP politicians for blaming Obama for not clearing up the birfer issue which was almost as stupid.  Also, I recall some comments like "if the President  says he was born in the US, I have no reason to believe that isn't the case."  Which is a way of saying that it is in doubt.  shiat like that.

"With a British father, Obama cannot meet the constitutional requirement of having been "natural born," which is a different and more restrictive category than "native born." Similarly ineligible, I would add, are Republican Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and, alas, Ted Cruz of Texas, both of whom have parents who were not citizens when they were born."

I'm sure the author raised the same argument when Mitt Romney was running for president, since Romney's father was born in Mexico, right?  Right?

First, though, I'd like to suggest that anyone reading this column in a local newspaper or news site pat the editor on the back for publishing what in our neo-medieval world of fear amounts to a "forbidden" column.

Going full-derp right off the bat, I see.

Hey, you dance with the one that brought you. Racism is the traditional foundation of the GOP leadership campaign strategy.

Hell, even the GOP leadership's "Rape-ublican" platform was based on racism:

Governor Romney's father was a United States citizen at the time of Mr. Mitt Romney's birth. "Natural born" citizenship status requires that both parents be United States citizens -- not necessarily "natural born" United States citizens -- at the time of the child's birth, according to assertions by birthers who have yet to cite any Constitutional provision, federal statute or court precedent to justify such a requirement.

Sorry, I couldn't read that to the end.  So that was the argument? That because Obama's father wasn't an American citizen, Obama can't be president? Is there really something in the Constitution that says "Even though you're an American citizen because you were born here or because one of your parents is an American citizen, you're not entitled to run for president unless both parents were American citizens"? Because I'm not familiar with that particular Article or Amendment.

Ah, you're right about Romney.  But it will be interesting to see if the birthers stick with this if Rubio runs in '16.

Muta: I seem to remember Palin making snarky comments about Obama's birth place.


Yeah, this is what Palin said (per Wiki):  Humphries asked Sarah Palin if she would make Barack Obama's birth certificate a campaign issue in 2012, should she decide to run. Palin responded, "I think the public rightfully is still making it an issue.  I don't have a problem with that. I don't know if I would have to bother to make it an issue, because I think that members of the electorate still want answers." Humphries followed up, asking whether she thinks Obama's birth certificate is a fair question to be looking at. Palin answered, "I think it's a fair question, just like I think past association and past voting records - all of that is fair game. The McCain-Palin campaign didn't do a good enough job in that area."

A typical Palin answer.
 
2013-04-05 01:00:56 PM
Didn't McCain basically tell someone to shut the fark up about Obama and the birth certificate issue on the campaign trail then get booed for it?

propasaurus: Then there's the whole thing about Ted Cruz actually being born in Canada.


Yeah, that's gonna be interesting when/if he goes for a Presidential run.  A lot of the nutjobs love him but don't even know he wasn't born in Texas, had a commie for a father, etc.

Citizenship granted by birth in the United States of America was not established until the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Many "birthers" argue that citizenship established by such in-territory birth is not itself "natural born" citizenship, and that "natural born" citizenship may be established only through birth to two parents who are themselves citizens of the United States of America. They are unable to cite any Constitutional provision nor federal statute establishing such a requirement, and when I have requested reference to a possible court precedent in support of their claim I have been told of United States v. Wong Kim Ark, where no such requirement is stated, and another ruling where the majority opinion explicitly stated that whether a child born to a non-citizen parent could be a "natural born" citizen was not of relevance and thus was not addressed by the ruling.

Proponents of such a requirement do cite a mid 18th-century treatise titled Le droit des gens, despite this treatise being authored by an individual who advocates a "natural law" system in contrast with the "common law" system established by the Founders.

2013-04-05 01:04:56 PM
So, getting back to the Obama case, tell me where the "racism" is in these concerns. Where is it?

It's in the fact that you keep hammering him on the issue, with no reciprocal insistence on documentation from ANY other president. Something's different, and since he's a man, it's not his gender. He's not any kind of third Party, so that'snot an issue. what's left besides gender and ideology? You know what it is, you just won't admit it because you don't have the stones.

Even though WorldNetDaily reported in August that the birth certificate released by Barack Obama's campaign is "authentic" as determined by its own investigation, and that a lawsuit by Philip J. Berg, an attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter, claiming that Obama is a non-citizen of the U.S. and thus ineligible to run for president "relies on discredited claims," WND has fully embraced assertions that the certificate is a forgery or otherwise insufficient proof that Obama is a U.S. citizen.
Further, no original WND article published on the subject of Obama's birth certificate since that article first appeared has referenced its claims, according to a search of WND's archives.
While WND has not acknowledged the article, it has also not publicly retracted it or otherwise deleted it from its website -- which indicates that it stands by the claims made in it. This further suggests that it is knowingly printing questionable or false claims about Obama's birth certificate, and thus perpetrating a fraud on its readers.
ConWebWatch has detailed WND's refusal to acknowledge its previous reporting during its attempts before the Nov. 4 election to raise questions about Obama's birth. WND's efforts to promote questions about the birth certificate have escalated dramatically since the election -- but there's still no acknowledgment of of its own reporting contradicting those concerns.
