The final theatrical act of the greatest shyster and swindler in the history of the world has begun, and there seems to be no exit strategy which will save his goose... ~ John Charlton
Obama surfed to power on a tidal wave of liberal whiners; but the winds of politics have changed drastically against him...
As politicization of Obama's birth story explodes nationwide, his 3 year bluff will be put to the test...
I speak of the Eligibility Crisis and Obama’s phony claims to legitimately hold the office of the U.S. Presidency.
The opening words of the final act were uttered by Obama himself, at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast, this morning:
“You can question my policies without questioning my faith — or for that fact, my citizenship“!
To explain why Obama said this, and why he has begun to run scared, one needs to consider the present political climate.
Following the Democrats’ stunning and historic loss of the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts — who would believe that one year ago? — Obama’s party put in motion a political strategy which is pure Hillary-esq. While appearing to defend Obama by politicizing his birth story, the decision to engage head-on on that issue is undeniably the most byzantine and machiavellian way to get rid of him!
According to Politico, it was the initiative of Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Robert Menendez. Among the ten litmus-test questions for a politically acceptable Republican opponent in the upcoming 2010 elections, Menendez’s committee chose one wing-dinger:
The memo urges Democratic candidates to force their opponents to answer a series of questions on health care, taxes and some of the favorite causes of the far right:
“Do you believe that Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen? Do you think the Tenth Amendment bars Congress from issuing regulations like minimum health care coverage standards? Do you think programs like Social Security and Medicare represent socialism and should never have been created in the first place? Do you think President Obama is a socialist? Do you think America should return to a gold standard?”
Let’s not forget that Menendez was floated as a Hillary VP Candidate just two years ago. Matt Friedman, writing for PolitickerNJ.com on Jan. 24, 2008, wrote:
Menendez would be the first vice president from New Jersey since Garrett Hobart, a former State Senate President from Paterson who ran with William McKinley in 1896.
In a phone interview, Graham said that the idea is his own, and has not discussed it with anyone until today. But he said that Menendez has been working hard for the Clinton campaign, traveling to Nevada, Florida and California to make appeals to Latino voters – and has done so effectively.
My point is, someone of his caliber won’t take a political move without Hillary’s approval, especially now, when the Democrats need more than anything else to get rid of Obama and distance themselves from him. And what could be more exquisite a maneuver than letting the big Zero hoist himself on his own petard?
This move by Menendez has caused an explosion of political commentary on the issue, even if, the real issue is not so much whether Obama is a citizen of the United States, which is unknown, but whether he is a natural born citizen, which he certainly never was, if his father was Barrack Hussein Obama, Sr..
O’Reilly proudly announced on his show, just last night, that he had investigated the issue and having found the two birth announcements from 1961, he can confirm that Obama was born in Hawaii!
Where did O’Reilly find them? The Post & Email is the only site on the web where both have been published. Did he perhaps just read The Post & Email, or did he do actual research?
If he had read The Post & Email, he would have noticed my commentary, where I point out the obvious problem with the birth announcements: they do not announce Obama’s birth; they announce a male child born to Mr. & Mrs. Barack Hussein Obama at an address where such a couple never lived.
What that means about Barry Jr.’s birth, we do not know. But what kind of idiot looks in newspapers to confirm something when the guy making the claim in the first place won’t show you his birth certificate? Is Obama some sort of mythical figure who cannot be interviewed?
One of the top 100 political blogs on the Internet, Citizen Wells, has responded to Glenn Beck’s notorious bias on the issue with his own political challenge in video format:
According to Andrea Shea King, who hosts a pro-Republican show on BlogTalk Radio, Obama’s eligibility will be the topic of the day for a three-hour radio program in the National Capitol on Friday at noon:
With the top dogs in the media seemingly muzzled or unwilling to take a dispassionate look at the question of Barack Obama’s background, it is refreshing to see that a Washington, DC radio host will.
One of my radio program listeners has informed us of a special three-hour program this Friday on WTNT 570 AM that will focus on Obama’s mysterious background and the “Constitutional eligibility” issue. The program will be streamed, so even if you aren’t in the Washington, DC listening area, you will be able to tune in on your computer.
The Jeff Kuner Show will air on WTNT 570 AM, from noon to 3 PM, Eastern Time. You can listen online at http://www.freedom570am.com/. Make sure you have his call-in phone number to participate in the program: (301) 984-9570.
Considering the above, I believe that public interest is going to grow, at this point, at such an astronomical rate that politicians will begin disclosing their own birth certificates to prove that they are Natural Born citizens; others, such as the Lt. Gov. of Tennessee, will start to openly admit that they are not certain Obama was born in the USA; and others might even get the manliness to challenge Obama to disclose his.
For that reason I believe this will come to a head, as it were, within the month. Let’s see how long Obama tries to stand against the political winds and how much of a fool he makes of himself doing so: if, in fact, he can actually make a greater fool of himself than he already has on this issue.
