Skip to comments.Republican senator says Snopes settled 'eligibility'
Posted on 03/05/2009 10:10:32 PM PST by FreeManN
Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., has referred constituents raising concerns over President Obama's eligibility to occupy the Oval Office to an online "fact" organization that relies for its answer partly on information from the Obama campaign.
"Thank you for your recent e-mail. Senator Obama meets the constitutional requirements for presidential office. Rumors pertaining to his citizenship status have been circulating on the Internet, and this information has been debunked by Snopes.com, which investigates the truth behind Internet rumors."

Ask the RINOs how many of them have even been ON a website?
Snopes held out hope until LONG after the Clintons left the White House that Hillary didn’t LIE when she said she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary.
good Lord in Heaven, our Senators use Snopes to settle constitutional questions now? I could expect it from a dem lunatic, but a RINO? what is this world coming to?
No wonder we are in trouble when we elect the village idiots to public office. Maybe this guy is looking for a cabinet job or something.
He claimed that 0Bama has already been 'vetted' twice by the people and I had to remind him that those were popularity contests and had nothing to do with him showing his birth certificate to prove eligibility!!
...maybe he asked Biden for Snopes' number? (nyuk, nyuk)
As the ObamaNation we now settle Constitutional issues using snopes.
Don’t forget that the nation’s leading news agencies turn to Media Matters for an accurate account of the Rush Limbaugh program. Seems most newsrooms and journalists’ cars don’t have radios.
Obama’s handlers have infiltrated far into the Republican Party.
Snopes skewered my film, HILLARY! UNCENSORED. I sent them 12 pages of corrections for their errors, misstatements, lies, and half truths. The witch who reviewed it, disgraced former TIME “journalist” Viveca Novak, even admitted that all she saw was the clip we had on Google Videos —— she had not bothered to watch the whole film.
I must have missed the part where the USofA vested it’s judicial authority to random websites.
This yahoo isn’t getting paid to check out Snopes...do your own Constitutional research, you lazy bum!
What are they putting in the $100-dollar-a-pound steak that Obama feeds his Congressional guests.
Every time, they just about get me back into the party, the ‘elders’ pull some stunt like this.
I guess taking to the streets is going to be the only option available to us if the likes of Kyl and Martinez are all we have for party ‘leadership’.
The pathetic thing is that if you wrote to him and tried to explain that Snopes is baised left, he’d probably dismiss you as some kind of hopeless kook. We are so screwed.
what is his DU screen name?? that is seriously pathetic!
I wonder if Snopes could fix the economy too. I might send them an email. Can’t hurt to ask.
Snopes works hard to put a liberal spin on everything.
Maybe they’ve been vetting all the Obama appointments. It would explain all the mistakes.
I don’t even know how to comment on a statement that colossally stupid.
And this from Kyl? Sheeeesh.....

...”The credibility that they’ve established is based on the laziness of reporters who have used them as a source.” That last quote is quite chilling: A Los Angeles-based husband and wife-—just two people with goodness knows what agenda or leanings-—have somehow managed to establish themselves as a pretty big boulder in the information stream. Most people accord the Mikkelsons a fair amount of credibility as the best source for confirmation or refutation of widely distributed Internet memes. Given how much reliance is being placed on their determinations, it seems like we do very well to know where they’re coming from....
I no longer trust Snopes... and neither should you

...For the Boudreaux photo, one would have to assume that Lance Cpl. Ted J. Boudreaux Jr. is pretty darned stupid to have 1) written a sign saying that he had killed the boy’s dad and then impregnated his sister, 2) posed for a photo next the boy holding that sign, and 3) allowed the photo to become public. Given the disparity in the status assigned the two entries, one has to assume that the Mikkelsons believe that it is at least possible that LCpl. Boudreaux is that stupid, but that it is not at all possible that the Muslim protesters...

This is a stupid argument, better to beat obama on the issues.
Google “snopes wrong”
Over a million hits.
I plan to write to Mel & point out that under his logic, we can decide that it’s legal not to pay income taxes, because that seems to be the popular course of action.
There, fixed it.
Wow. Daily KO’s says so, too.
Who is running this asylum?
Not really. Kyl is the village idiot. He and Harry Reed need to start dating.
Kyl is the same j....a.... from 2007 with the Immigration Reform Act...joined by john dialing for dollars mccain
The other thread of the same.
With idiots like this no wonder the RNC lost.
What the hell?
We have soooo many fools in the GOP. They’ve either got to go, or the rest of us have to move on. I can’t stand those liberals pretending to be conservative.
As it was succinctly put to me about Kyl and Senators et al:
Oh, a new guy. I see you signed up this evening.
You can go after Obama on all and every ‘real issue’.
I don’t see how constitutional eligibility to be president isn’t a “real issue”?
Has it occurred to you that lurkers could be trolls in waiting?
Yes, I know that Obama spending like an insane Communist with money that’s not his. And Obama not being a natural born citizen is avenue that needs to be pursued to remove him before his 4 year term ends.
It's your first day here and you want to steer discussions you didn't start?
Get off the threads if you don't like them.
This boy has been busy posting on FR! Check out his posts...and the time between postings...Fast typing fingers or could be more than one person posting with the same screen name???????
On your first day in the forum - you take the position that eligibility under the Constitution isn’t a “real issue”?
Not a good start....
You’re off to a fast start. Paranoia - hardly. More like good observation based on experience.
This sounds like a hoax to me. Should we check Snopes to see if Kyl is there?
