[Re. Obama's vacation in Hawaii.]

You can always tell what someone is trying to hide, by the way they try to hide it.

This trip to Hawaii has doubled as an advertising campaign...well, perhaps "propaganda" campaign would be more descriptive.

Following the communist rule, "if you tell the same lie enough times, people will start to believe it", every story from the pineapple state has tried to reiterate that obama was "born" there...but you know what...liberally biased, human interest stories from a liberally biased news media does not constitute facts.

In addition to the millions he has already spent to hide his past, he is now using this extended bullsh*t photo opp to try and drive the nail home that he was born in Hawaii...no other proof, mind you, just the Associated Press...that's like beleiving Joe Isuzu.

Here's the bottom line...after eleven days on Oahu, if he really wanted to prove he was born there, why not used the powers of his office to locate his "birth doctor", and have a beer summit with him? Or even go back to the hospital where he was supposedly born to meet and greet the staff?

Better still, how about a big class reunion with ALL the folks he went to grade school and high school with...that'd be a treat for the public, wouldn't it?

But he did none of that, instead he played golf.

Rush Limbaugh went to Hawaii as well, many Americans and foreigners alike take holidays there. He's taken vacations there in the past. Your point?

Tell me, where, oh where, did you hide your brain? You twit!

For fuck sake, he can't even have a holiday now? WTf is wrong with you assholes?

Visit the hospital where he was born?

Why? On the off chance he finds an 80 year old nurse that happens have both a shift in the maternity ward when Obama was a baby and high grade eidetic memory?

aaa

It's called a vacation for a very good reason.

Why didn't he do all that? I think because he knows that there's no convincing you people and you would still claim it was all a big fraud.

I know it's simply an eyewitness testimony, but I find it hilarious that people like this ask for people to come out and say they saw him being born or whatever, without realizing that the real world DOESN'T GIVE A FUCK, and you'd just ignore them anyway, since it doesn't align with your view.

I'm almost hoping (almost) some GOP fuckstick pulls off a miracle in the next election. I am going to be so fucking disruptive of that adminstration...

But...the President doesn't have anything to prove. That's the thing. Frankly, it'd be a lot weirder if he actually did bother with any of those things.

And of course, the minute he did, FrankR would probably be among the first of the birthers to squeal obnoxiously about how suspicious it all was that this Barack Hussein Obama character was so transparently trying to get us to believe that he was born in Hawaii.

So, from the President's perspective, why not just play some golf? After all, he's been working awfully hard lately.

Doubting Thomas

Because if Obama had done any of that stuff instead of play golf, then you'd be screaming about how it was just a photo op to try to convince people he was born in Hawaii.

Let's face it, no amount of incontrovertible evidence is ever going to convince you birthers that he is a natural-born American citizen. I'm sure the president considers the case long closed and doesn't even give two shits about what you people think.

Yeah, because assuming they're even still alive, they'd be sure to remember the birth and thinking at the time, "Gosh, I just delivered a future president of the United States."

His birth (in Hawaii) was unremarkable and there is no reason why anyone in the hospital would remember it decades later.

As to the class reunion comment, I don't go to my own class reunions, why should I care about anyone else's regardless of who they are?

Goebbels was a communist?

"...instead he played golf."

So did Bush.

Also: Christ, it's a vacation! Calm down!

Aside from that not being strictly communist, how do you not feel the cascades of cognitive dissonance raining down on you? Repeating something until it's true? You mean... just like a birther?

Yes, it was so much easier with "W," whose parents are alive and in the U.S. Or as they are known in much of the world, George Herbert Walker Bush and his wife Barbara the yeti.

Man, did I just insult yetis?

Joe Isuzu? Is this guy living in 1986?

As for the rest, meh. Standard birther bullshit.

Obama was born in 1961, I'm sure the doctor who delivered him is no longer alive.

And you freepers are ones to criticize Obama for taking a vacation in his home state. If I recall your hero Bush spent like 2/3 of his presidency hiding out in Crawford.

1/16/2010 8:17:51 PM



Or he was just, y'know, on vacation?

If I ever go back to the town I was born, I probably would go to see the hospital I was born in, but that's just because being born there is literally the only affiliation I have with the place; we moved pretty soon after I was born, and I haven't even lived in the same province since.

1/17/2010 1:20:34 AM



On the other hand, he could just show the birth certificate and published birth announcements from two 1961 Hawaiian newspapers, and post them on the internet. Oh wait, he did that, didn't he?

Why? WHY? Because it would be an abuse of power on a VACATION. Take your pills and calm down.

Now I've got an image in my head of a doddering old lady in a candy-striper uniform saying, "Why, Barack Jr! You haven't changed a bit!"

Maybe he had nothing to prove, you dolt.

"if you tell the same lie enough times, people will start to believe it"

I thought that was the Republican motto.

Death panels and Birthers, to the rescue!!!

I know I'm not a president or anything, but every year I fly half way across the world for a vacation in the town where I was born. I never once have visited the hospital where I was born, and I don't even know exactly where it is. I frankly could not care less.

Part of the reason might be that the staff who worked there at the time are long since retired or dead anyway. The same, I'd imagine, is true of Obama.
