Skip to comments.Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich and the spotlight-chasing candidates 2012 (Will blind to O's past?)

....A magazine article containing what Gingrich calls a "stunning insight" is "the most profound insight I have read in the last six years about Barack Obama." Gingrich begins with a faux question: "What if he is so outside our comprehension" that he can be understood "only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior?" Then Gingrich says this is not just a question, it is "the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior."
To the notion that Obama has a "Kenyan, anti-colonial" worldview, the sensible response is: If only. Obama's natural habitat is as American as the nearest faculty club; he is a distillation of America's academic mentality; he is as American as the other professor-president, Woodrow Wilson. A question for former history professor Gingrich: Why implicate Kenya?....

"Don't you think it's fair also to ask [Barack Obama] . . . how come we don't have a health record, we don't have a college record, we don't have a birth cer - why, Mr. Obama, did you spend millions of dollars in courts all over this country to defend against having to present a birth certificate. It's one thing to say, I've - you've seen it, goodbye. But why go to court and send lawyers to defend against having to show it? Don't you think we deserve to know more about this man?"
Huckabee should have replied, "I've seen paranoia, goodbye."....
I support neither Huckabee nor Gingrich. But the substance of Will's point is that it is paranoia and foolishness to delve into Obama's past, and suicidal for the GOP's chances.
Andrew McCarthy's crucial research in American Jihad revealing Obama Sr.'s professional career in Kenya is precisely relevant because of Dreams of My Father's central role in Obama's worldview.
Huckabee blundered in saying Obama grew up in Kenya, but shouldn't Will be addressing the fundamental problem of such a man as this in the White House with his Arab simpatico? Will's description of his American professorial mindset, while partially true, alarms for what Will evidently hasn't researched.
I believe every voter has the right to know a helluva lot more about their PRES then we know about ZERO. And ZERO is what we know of his past.
Isn’t it amazing that Dan Rather,legendary journalist, who has investigated every aspect of George Bush’s life has not done any research on B.O.?
Somethings up, cause the dem/libs keep talking about it.
“I believe every voter has the right to know a helluva lot more about their PRES then we know about ZERO. And ZERO is what we know of his past.”
Yes. We must not let this happen again. When the founders added the requirements to serve as president the intent was to prevent a future BHO. The American people ignored their wisdom and the very clear wording of our Constitution.
I suggest that we all urge Republican candidates to hold a short press conference and show their original long form birth certificate. Then post all their information on the campaign website for all to see.
This would force BHO out in the open. He is hiding something and I think we all know what that is.
His behavior and attitude toward traditional American culture is not difficult to understand.
And here’s a good place to find out:
“....it is paranoia and foolishness to delve into Obama’s past, and suicidal for the GOP’s chances.”
One might say that....... but, it is ‘foolishness and suicidal’ for our country, if we do nothing.
When we no longer care about the truth, there is little reason for us to continue to exist.
Mankind has been seeking the truth from when we first stepped out of our caves. We have traveled the oceans of the world, set foot on the Moon, found the cure for invisible diseases and achieved much much more...... all by seeking the truth.
The simple turning of a page in the bible, is seeking the truth.
It is the hiding or disguising of the truth that is wrong, not seeking it.
Obama, an arrogant lying traitorous bastard, could release the truth for the cost of a ham sandwich and a cup of coffee. He acts more like a murder suspect, a common criminal, than a President.
I hate the word “birther’s”, I am not one, and I refuse to accept this branding. Those that desire to know the details of Obama’s past are “Truth Seekers”..... as well as patriots.
Obama, TEAR DOWN THAT WALL OF DECEPTION.
George Will seems ‘rattled’ in this essay.
