I’ve seen Jack Cashill’s video speeches. I’ve read Stanly Kurtz’ book, Radical in Chief. And it’s because of them and all the comments that cali has made that I believe there is more to this president’s past than we know.
Am I convinced that he was born in Hawaii? NO.
Do I think there’s a possibility that he was born outside this country? YES.
Do I think that Obama could be playing us all as rubes and he really is Hawaiian born? YES.
Do I know for certain that he’s a Christian? NO.
I’m not prepared to discount anything. And what does that say about this man we elected? It says that we really know nothing for sure about him. All that remains are more and more conspiracy theories and I see this as something that will never die. There will be theories about this guy’s life in perpetuity.
Maybe that’s what he wants to leave history: something like an Arthurian legacy. Can anyone prove, without doubt that King Arthur lived? No. Can it be proven that he didn’t? No.
Can anything be definitively proven about Obama’s early life? Very little.
He’s a little like Jesus, isn’t he? There’s a large gap of time during childhood that is all but non-existent, in both men’s lifes. The difference is that we take on faith the life of Jesus because we have no kindergarten teachers or childhood friends to question. Somehow, Obama has kept most of his past a secret and kept quiet almost all those who had to have known him.
I just don’t know what to think about this man – aside from knowing that he’s a Marxist who shares none of my beliefs or my vision of what America really is about and knowing that he has plans that will destroy the America that we love. He is dangerous to our future and another term as president will create almost irreversible damage to us as a people and a nation.
I went looking for the blog that my good friend AFVET mentioned in another post regarding our START treaty with Russia and stumbled on this one. Everyone should read it.
Although I’ve waffled on this topic and can see both sides of the issue, mostly I’ve believed that this whole birth certificate thing is a red herring. It’s being used to set up the right as the nutwings the progressives believe we are. This is an issue that the left wants in the news, daily. And this Abercrombie in Hawaii is as stupid as a fox by using it to whip up more and more headlines in order to make conservatives look more and more nutty.
Did you know, for instance that this birth certificate thing all started with the Hillary movement, in 2008? Or that Orly Taitz (the lead attorney in this whole thing) is a democrat donor? And that a lot of this hoopla about the certificate has been fowarded by 9-11 truthers?
Well, I for one, had no idea of these things. But the author of this blog seems to have evidence to those assertions. And I find no reason to doubt his statements. And I admit to pretty much ignoring this BC topic because I believe, in the end, that it’s going to be a hammer used to beat us up and win this election for Obama.
When I read that this governor was going to “settle this birth certificate thing once and for all,” I smelled a rat. There is no way that this was going to happen without the imprimatur of the White House. Abercrombie, the self avowed socialist, was not working unilaterally. Obama’s people had to be involved in this. If the gov’s goal was to settle this, then why didn’t the WH just produce the thing and settle it?
I think it’s clear why they didn’t. They want to use the birthers to beat up on the right during this next election. Of course, the beating up will not OFFICIALLY come out of the Obama campaign. It will be a whisper campaign that will then be carried and screeched by all MSM.
The birthers want the same thing that the all conservatives want: a one term president. They need to quiet down this whole thing and let it ride until we vote him out. Otherwise this is going to be used to beat the right – all of the right – over the head. This could change some independents minds come November 2012, who were likely NOT to vote to reelect him.
If the birthers turn out to be right, this can all be settled after we vote him out of office.
But who knows – maybe in the eleventh hour of this election, like a Hail Mary pass, someone will produce the real birth certificate, make the birthers look like wingnuts and a little thing like that could swing the election for Obama.
I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say this is the stupidest thing I’ve read all day – even though the day is only 6am where I live and there’s plenty of time for more stupid things. And it’s a sure bet that there will be equally if not superior stupid things yet to come in this 24 hour period.
Number 1, this bill will never pass due to privacy issues and because of that, it should not pass. I sure wouldn’t want anyone for a mere $100 to be able to get my birth certificate.
Secondly, this bill would not even have been contemplated if the president of the United States took 5 minutes out of his busy schedule filming YouTube videos to tell us to stop eating tater tots, to clear this up, once and for all. But if he really is an American citizen, it’s to his benefit to keep up the conspiracy theories.
Regardless of the truth about his citizenship, this is a win/win for him. He need say nothing and just let the liberal media loose on the “birthers.”
Up until now, for the most part, those who opposed Obama’s policies could not just be opposed to his policies on principle and facts but because they are racist. Now the liberal media and bloggers can include nutty, right-wing birther conspiracy theorists. But they won’t say it that nicely.
I can see all the angles to this birth certificate issue. Part of me agrees with the so-called birthers, while another part of me is cynical enough to think that Obama has just nurtured this conspiracy thing to his benefit.
I admit that I’m dumbfounded by this president. And I’m asking the same question I asked over a year ago, Who is this man?
On one hand, I think that Obama has to be the most naive person to ever sit in the oval office. Just look at his record with rogue nations like North Korea and Iran. I think that Obama really thought that if he could just talk to these evil men, he could charm them into seeing things his way. Just this morning, North Korean put it’s soldiers on war alert. If the North invades the South, how will we react? Or will we?
How out of touch with the American people do you need to be to set up a flag.gov site for neighbors to spy on each other and report to big brother? Did he really believe that this would fly (pardon the flag flying pun) with what we, as Americans, believe is fair and just?
On the other hand, he seems to be completely overwhelmed by the office he holds. A look at his response to the catastrophic oil spill is a good example. It has him paralyzed into inaction. His regime seems to be confused and befuddled into inactivity and forcing the governors of those states impacted, to take action alone. But to be fair, what was his first act when he finally did do something? He sent lawyers to the gulf.

He totally ignored Nashville and it’s horrific flooding. Those citizens must feel real warm and fuzzy about him now.
And on the third hand (if I had one), he shows so much callousness and lack of class that it’s almost unbelievable. Where will he be on Memorial day? Not at Arlington. He’ll be throwing a party for Paul McCartney. Has anyone forgotten how he treated Benjamin Netanyahu? Or the Dalai Lama? Compare that to how he treated the Mexican president last week with a state dinner.

His regime members okayed a fly over of Manhattan that terrified New Yorkers last year. While unemployment hovered near 10%, he took his wife out for dinner and a Broadway show, spending millions of dollars and disrupting the city. He spent more bundles on his family’s summer vacation at Martha’s Vineyard and a Christmas trip to Hawaii. (Let’s not forget that was at the same time as the Christmas panty bomber event, too.) He can’t be bothered to take his children to church (because after all, he’s not a Christian) but he makes a show of his golf game every Sunday.
It’s been 10 months – TEN – since his last press conference. What does that say about him? Not only does he not respect the press that is so enamored with him but he’s afraid to speak off the cuff, sans a teleprompter for fear he might say something idiotic again, (rememeber “the cops “acted stupidly?”) Oh, he campaigns all the time, he’s speechifying constantly but never without a script, never without his teleprompter. Is it any surprise that his last press conference was the one that prompted a beer summit in the Rose Garden?

I just don’t know who this president is. I don’t think there was ever a question, whether you like George Bush or not, who he was and what he stood for. But with Obama, we were sold a bill of goods during the campaign that he was the smartest man to ever run and then win the White House. If hes’ so smart, how can he keep doing such stupid and naive things? What does that say about the intelligence of his handlers?
For me, 2012 will not come soon enough. The one thing I know for sure about this man is that has got to go. He has to be sent back to his bastion of corruption in Chicago so that we can repair the damage he’s done.
Great column here about how Obama’s image makers and news shapers have been falling down on the job in the last 2 weeks.
And as Vicki writes here, the images that the White House is putting out are less than flattering. Smug-down-his-nose pictures of Obama with Biden, an empty oval office… what’s the message being sent to the American people? This whole year has been about image from the WH. What’s happened to Axelrod?
The One’s on television 3 times a day but let someone try to blow up a plane over Detroit and he’s mousy mum for 4 days! Does he not think that the American people needed to hear some reassurance after this Christmas day terrorist attack? That we needed to know that the LEADER was on top of this?
Make no mistake about it: the bomb may not have gone off but the attack was successful, just the same. We are scared, we are off balance, we are confused and we were surprised. And the president has been golfing and snorkeling and dining in a $4000/night estate. We have over 10% unemployment and he’s vacationing like this?
Again, it’s about image and lack of attention to it. The real Obama seems to be emerging.
