Note: when you pull up this video, it is titled "I invented the internet"...a misnomer--that is only the opening "bumper"...watch to see the lowdown on Obama's birth certificate scandal. It is closing in.
Look when you guys can actually prove something on this, let me know. You have 3 weeks left.
watch the video
It would be interesting to put together a video of the adulation Obama received in Kenya with details from the Berg lawsuit. It really makes you wonder if the Kenyans know something we don’t.
There is no proof there that he isn’t a citizen of the US.
Letter to editor printed in Ohio newspaper today about Berg.
It occurred to me that he must have a passport. Is it a US passport? He would not have been able to get one without a US birth certificate. If he can easily disprove these claims though, why hasn’t he? Showing the proof would shut all the talk up in a nanosecond.
OMG...the AP has NO credbibilty left—covering for Obama and trying to equate McCain’s fully vetted birth ( on US military base in Panama)
Factcheck is a JOKE and Obama-supported affilate
If there is NO question to his being legit....why does he not provide the BIRTH CERTIFICATE?
WASHINGTON (AP) As John McCain and Barack Obama vie to become president, certain fevered voices persist in saying they should not even be allowed to try.
In an argument popular on the Internet and taken seriously practically nowhere else, critics of the candidates argue that each does not qualify to run for the White House because he’s not a “natural-born citizen” as the Constitution requires.
Obama plainly is, because he was born in the U.S.
McCain qualifies, too, although the circumstances of his birth on a U.S. naval base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936 were unusual enough to merit a review.
In California, U.S. District Judge William Alsup threw out a lawsuit seeking to remove McCain from the state’s ballot because of his birthplace.
Alsup ruled in September that McCain was essentially a qualifying citizen two times over first, because both his parents were U.S. citizens, which satisfied eligibility rules of the time; and because a law passed a year after his birth retroactively recognizing people born in the zone as natural-born Americans.
McCain’s father was stationed in the Panama Canal Zone with the U.S. Navy.
The Constitution requires that only “natural-born” citizens hold the presidency. But the Founding Fathers did not elaborate on the term, so bloggers and others have had a field day.
Theories abound that Obama actually was born abroad and that his birth certificate, proving he was born in Hawaii, is a fake.
Obama was born in Honolulu in 1961, two years after Hawaii became a state. He is the son of a Kenyan father and a mother from Kansas, who met and married in Hawaii. After the marriage failed, a 6-year-old Obama left Hawaii to spend four years in Indonesia with his mother and Indonesian stepfather. In 1971, when he was 10, Obama’s mother sent him back to Honolulu to stay with his maternal grandparents.
In response to the allegations, Obama’s campaign in June posted the Illinois senator’s birth certificate on his campaign Web site, http://fightthesmears.com/articles/5/birthcertificate.
The nonpartisan Web site Factcheck.org examined the original document and said it does have a raised seal and the usual evidence of a genuine document.
Even so, a lawsuit challenging Obama’s candidacy was filed in August in a U.S. District Court in Pennsylvania and is still pending.
McCain can’t even tie Obama to Ayers, you think this is going to do it in the next 3 weeks.
McCain should have enough with Acorn, the dems and Freddie and Fannie, Ayers, Wright and all the others. McCain has to quit being afraid of offending anyone and go after Obama on these. He will Never use the birth certificate thing, he is still too afraid to hit tough on the ones that are easier to prove.
So what happens if he is disqualified?
Is it Biden or Hillary????
That's like saying there's no proof there aren't flying pigs.
It all comes down to this simple question. If Obama has a valid certificate of birth why not simply show it to the media and world and make all this go away? Instead he's fighting it tooth and nail.
For what possible reason is there for him to do that?
There's clearly a problem with it. What?
The only issue at stake is whether Obama is a natural born citizen. If he was born in Hawaii as he says, then it is case closed. We know he has a US passport, which is proof of citizenship.
Because he doesn't have to. Because if he responds in any way then it just lends credibility to all the wild charges. Because it suits his purposes to have the paranoid fringe of the right wing chasing its tail. Take your pick.
Depends on when he's disqualified.
Then why won't the crook trot hhis Birth Certificate out? What is he afraid of?
Like Hillary before the election and Biden after?
I’m seriously asking, can Hillary just replace him?
