Obama cracks a birther joke

By Associated Press


ORLANDO, Fla. >> It's that birther thing again.

President Barack Obama was at an Orlando sports bar today, snapping a University of Florida Gators' sign, sipping a pint and working a crowd when he walked up to a table with five children. One adult points to one of the boys, 7-year-old Andre Wupperman of Orlando, and informs the president that the boy was born in Hawaii, the president's native state.

The president, delighted, greeted the boy with a shaka. The boy gestured back.

"You were born in Hawaii?" the president said. Then he added teasingly: "You have a birth certificate?"

The patrons at Gator's Dockside, clearly aware of the discredited claims that Obama was not born in the United States, broke up laughing.

Ignorance breeds hate. Ignorance also breeds fear. What gets me is people struggling to survive supporting the side that supports the rich getting richer.

hey mosquito when was the last time a poor guy on government food stamps ever hired you? when does a welfare slug build up a business to support families and build communities? where does the term hate come in this conversation? or ignorance? if you look on the Democratic 'constituency' versus the GOP a clue might enter your head. The Democrats don't see Americans as empowered intelligent individuals. They visualize them as 'groups' which need to be lead by community organizers like BO

... the Piped Piper for the Radical Left. Or they need to be herded like cattle, sheparded like sheep and feed on foodstamps. They're dumb, poor, and helpless and need government in every facet of life. This is a powerful snare, a trap and we know where sheep end up. Government hands out birth control, abortions as if fertility is a disease. The Dem convention for the first time in any political convention in the US history tried to diss God out of their affiliation language. OH OH.

Thanks for making my point. People on welfare supporting the rich get richer is a mystery. Besides, what does a guy on foodstamps have to do with the rich getting richer. Appears to me the richer they are the lower the wage they want to pay.

John McCain and Mitt Romney have both acknowledged the President's birthplace and citizenship. Is that also a case of "willful blindness" from them as his "followers"?

McCain and Romney are looking out for their political hides, even in the face of the obvious. Look what happened to Trump's political aspirations once he pursued Obama's legitimacy for TPOTUS. Liberal activists and the Democratic organization understandably vilify those who question BO's birth, making it toxic, even radio active so much so that it has worked...for now. Anyone with balls in the USA has to stand up for the truth. You can hear Barack on UTube ADMIT he's not American born as well as Michelle and yet 'Birthers' are reviled. It might be that Trump might present damning information just before the election. I can only pray SOMEONE stops Obama. If you think OB has harmed America's standing thru the deficit? He has another giant humdinger awaiting once he is re-elected and has 'more flexibility'. It seems obvious he wants to destroy the American currency much like the way Soros, his financier and mentor, has done to the UK, Singapore and Malaysia. Soros HATES the USA, so does Jeremiah Wright, the Black Panthers and Lewis Farrakan.

So your point is the last two Republican nominees for President have no spine and have lied repeatedly to the American public because they are afraid of the media? Thank you for clarifying that.

Yes, quite intelligent. All you can do is call names. Liberals can only resort to name calling, victimization where there is none and trying to create a bunch of disgruntled factions in the country. Oh, and if Obama is slammed for his handling of the economy, well, then, it is racism. And you don't even know if I'm caucasian or AA. And what would you call African American Republicans in Congress or Senate? I guess they'd be racists also. Just shows how your brain functions with all that Jim Obama Jones Koolaid. Frankly, I guess I need to get get me some a daat because I can't fathom what there is about this guy that makes followers so BLIND. To me, he comes off like a hustler who'd throw anyone under the bus (calling Bill Clinton a racist) and then expects them to come up to bat for him. Obama gives me the creeps.

Once OB is re-elected, he will use his 'flexibility' for a stimulus to end all stimuluses. The stock market is itching for another one. This will put the US deficit so high it will destroy the US dollar and every financial system. It looks like Obama can't destroy the USA's economic might fast enough. He hates the USA much like George Soros, his mentor and financier, and note what Soros did to the UK currency, the Malaysian and Singapore banks! McCain and Romney understand that pursuing the birther issues might incite an even great polarization in the USA. They need the message to get out about the constitutional violation OB posed as TPOTUS but neither of these guys want to sound the alarm if they want power. Hopefully, someone will bring out the truth before the election.

... and folks say, look at the stock market and the GOP since Obama took office. Make note tht since 2000 the valuation of the US dollar has fallen by 25%. Stimulus don't work over time. The first needs to be strong and huge and with luck will have helped the US economy. Those following will only add to debt and the cost of carrying the debt without the bounce in the economy. Much like trying to take a shot at recovery with a worn out 'sling'.

The ramification of the accusation of birthers that Obama was not born in the US is that he must have been brought to the US as infant by his mother. That being the case, it is the task of the birthers to provide proof of any immigration document or visa that says Obama was brought to the US as an infant by his mother.
