Obama's U.S. Citizen Question Is Not New;
Does Obama Have An Illegitimate Child?
Now making the Internet rounds is a posting questioning whether McCain's presumptive Democratic opponent, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, is a natural-born citizen and therefore constitutionally qualified to be president. I suppose it was only a matter of time.
I'm going to take a moment to tout my own blog, something I don't often do. This is not the latest rumor or story to anyone reading my blog on a regular basis.
I wrote about Obama's questionable citizenship - or more appropriately, what could be his lack of U.S. citizenship - on May 17. And I gave credit to the Hawaii-based blog who posited the dubious nature of Obama's citizenship. Velvet Hammer wrote about this issue on March 5.
So...hey...SWAMP...it's not exactly like this is making the rounds "now." You just need to find better places from where to get your scoops. Like my blog, the Hawaiian Independence Blog and Velvet Hammer. I, of course, recommend my blog as SWAMP's first stop.
What I published on May 17 concerns not so much the status of citizenship of his parents as much as that Hawaii - Obama's birthplace - was never ratified into Statehood. This could indeed be interpreted as disqualifying him from holding the office he seeks.
Obama says he was born in Hawaii. Hawaii's statehood was never ratified. Technically, the Hawaiian Islands were annexed. So if Obama was born in annexed territory whose statehood was never ratified, it certainly is a legitimate issue to examine and theorize that Obama may indeed lack the Constitutional requirements to run for the White House.
Desperate attempts by The Obama Cult Followers are trying to "show" us that The Affirmative Action Candidate is as American as Apple Pie.
Obama's FightTheSmears (FTS) website has posted what they allege is his "Birth Certificate". And over at DailyKooks, the greasy Markos Zuniga has reproduced the same so-called "Birth Certificate". Nice try! Both FTS and DKooks get an "E" for effort. Or should that be "Evasion"?
What both sites have posted is a Certificate of Live Birth, not Obama's Certified Birth Certificate. There is a difference. A Birth Certificate is an official record and document of the date and place of a person's birth, usually including the names of the parents. A Certificate of Live Birth is merely the registration of a vital statistic. Don't believe me, do your own research.
The same FTS link above also links to Hawaii's Official Tourism Site in an attempt to give credence and legitimacy to the fact that Hawaii is a "State". Again, to repeat what I wrote earlier, Hawaii's statehood was never ratified. Nice try, Barry, but no soup for you!
So we still have no actual documentation of Obama's Certified Birth Certificate. Huh. How strange. How mysterious. National Review Online notes the rumor that Obama doesn't want to release his Certified Birth Certificate because his legal name is "Barry". Oh, that wouldn't lend itself too well to his street cred now, would it?
Many "rumors" turn out to be true. Actor Rock Hudson's homosexuality was a rumor for years in the general public while everyone in Hollywood knew this open secret to be true. Rosie O'Donnell being a lesbian was a "rumor" until she announced it was true. "Rumors" about Bill Clinton's marital infidelity were just rumors, until they were proven to be true when confirmed by women like Gennifer Flowers and Monica Lewinsky. There were "rumors" about Rush Limbaugh's prescription drug addiction until they turned out to be true, first published - if I recall correctly - by the National Enquirer, a tabloid whose stories people claim they never believe.
The latest rumor is that Obama might not be a U.S. Citizen? Well, if you define "latest" as four-or-more week old news that is suddenly now part of the Dinosaur Media then yeah, I guess this is the "latest" news. Yawn.
Here's the next rumor about Obama that will be talked about by the MSM, Talk Radio, the Blogosphere and those who think they are on the cutting edge (they're not) four to six weeks from now, and remember where you read it first: Supposedly - and I'm not putting any degree of believability into it at this point, but it's out there - Obama has an illegitimate child holed up and sequestered from the public either in Chicago or Hawaii. The child was fathered by Obama not long before he married Pickles The Dangerous Washerwoman. This would make the child in its mid-teen years as they were married in 1992, having met in 1989. And it's a girl. Maybe this is why The Dangerous Washerwoman has such a angry demeanor?
Folks, I am ahead of the curve here. I may not technically "break" a story, but if you want to know what the MSM and Talk Radio - both Conservative and Liberal - will be talking about tomorrow or next week or a month from now, this is the place to find it.
There. For the moment, I'm done touting my own blog. Thank you for your continued visits.
What I want to know is this:
How can the media sit there and deny that they are biased? Just observe the look on Ms. Couric's face when she delivers the evening news and the subject is "Obama" himself. She looks as if she's in the middle of creaming her panties right there on the "spot" (No pun intended).
It's called Rank and Unmitigated Hypocrisy and Double Standards, Braden.
If you hit some of the really far left sites and blogs, they write that NBC CBS and ABC are also part of the Right Wing Media.
The only persons they beleive are Keith Olberwiener and that other asshat whose name I can't recall right now.
They think Olbermann is "objective". Oh, I laugh until stomach acid flows out of my stomach!
