Obama jabs 'birthers' with Irish certificate

FROM CNN's POLITICAL UNIT:

(CNN) – While receiving a formal certificate of Irish heritage at a St. Patrick's Day celebration on Tuesday, President Barack Obama didn't miss a beat in taking a jab at the so-called "birther" movement.

"This will have a special place of honor alongside my birth certificate," he joked, to great laughter.

Ireland's Taoiseach (prime minister) Enda Kenny presented Obama with the certificate at a White House reception in honor of the president's Irish roots.

The document was to serve, Kenny said, as a "permanent reminder" of Obama's trip last year to the Irish town of Moneygall, where the president's great-great-great grandfather emigrated from during the nineteenth century.

      First, the radicals, marxists, and progressives, highjacked the democratic party ... now they are highjacking America. Obama, and his anti-American followers must be stopped, or America is doomed.

        Did you see? Some lib thinks he's your daddy...
        People say BO is a very smart man, but this is a very stupid idea. Libs, before you comment just remember he brought this up.
        I would love to find a lib who is an expert on Photoshop who actually read Joe Apaio's report so they can tell us the holes that they see in it. It is a great read if you haven't read it yet. Joe and his group did things to the PDF version of the BC document that should not have been possible.

        comeon – maybe you could provide us with your defination of each? Obama is as radical as they come. Maybe you don't know this because you haven't read his books or because the press loves him so much they avoid certian subjects when it comes to reporting about him.

        Mittwit is no match for the charm and intelligence of the red president. I agree Obama is a Marxist. Blow- out alla mc govern or goldwater. We lost Gore ( a man more elitist than Obama, intelligent as Obama but far more clever at hiding it). Gore was the answer. Liberal or conservative (i am the latter), Gore had the brains to do what Bush could not do.
        He proved it by re-inventing himself: billionaire puppet master in just 8 years

        So, because Obama wants to raise the marginal tax rate for people making more than $1.0 million by 3%, back to where it was in 2000, that makes him a Marxist? You don't know what Marxism is.

      John he taught constitutional law at the University Of Chicago and his record their and at Harvard has already been made public. I don't understand how this President has been cloaked in such controversy for wanting to assist this country into becoming great again. We are the only rich country in the world who does not provide some form of health coverage for it's citizens. The average cost of care annually per person in other countries is 3500.00 in America it's 8500.00. In other countries healthcare is 6-11% of their gdp. in Amerca it's as high as 18%.
      And it's not just poor people who are without health insurance.

        We now have people like you making stuff up to defend him. He works for you, don't you get it? He is without a doubt the MOST RADICAL PRESIDENY this country has ever seen. His associations with racists and radicals who bombed governmnet buildings in this country is proof. I can only imagine you libs think this stuff is false because you obviously support him.

        John & all of you that think like him....what exactly do you think the President is hiding that has you so paranoid? If he really is hiding something that dire then you have absolutely no confidence in our government on either side as they would be the ones hiding it. You do honestly think that Obama wasn't vetted by the Powers to Be before running for President...what about those he ran against, McCain & Clinton...do you honestly think their people would not have exposed Obama if there was something to undercover. What about the Bush Administration (when Obama was Senator), or the CIA, FBI??? GET REAL FOR ONCE!!!!!!

        John...did Bush release such records? Oh...I forgot he didn't have any editorials to release! LOL!! However, I don't think we even required him to...no other President was required or expected to if my memory serves me right!! It wasn't even an issue until THIS man went to the WHITEHOUSE! The way you biggoted cons fall over yourselves, backwards and sideways to justify your radical con views of THIS President is what's obviously par for the course!!

        Bob, I have never heard Bush went AWOL from service, maybe you could point me to an article? I have heard BO did not register for the draft when he should have. Why doesn't that bother you?

        Liz, all of Bush's records got out before he was president. Even the ones showing how much smarter he was in school than John Kerry (the other lib genius)... What does that tell you about the press and how different they are treating BO.

        @John
        Common sense says the records don't need to be released, we have all the information we need to make the judgment that he was by all standards an excellent student.

        You do remember President Obama was the first elected black president of the Harvard Law Review? You should also remember he taught Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago School of Law. Seven past-presidents of the Harvard Law Review have been appointed to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States. Currently five sitting Supreme Court justices have served as past-president of the Harvard Law Review. I might not agree with some of them....but I don't think they were making failing grades at Harvard. Or that regardless of their poor grades were selected to be president of the Harvard Law Review.

        I think you have absolutely nothing or you wouldn't still be rehashing lame item.

        John:

        We libs know alot more about president Obama in the fourth year of his presidency than you know about any of the clown car of candidates the republicans have unleashed upon this country. What we do know about Mitt Romney is that he believes that being chief executive officer of a nation of 315 million people is like running any big corporation. And for that reason people like me do not trust him. How would he define the "bottom line"? What is he willing to give up to lead the nation there? He has no idea what the bottom line is or should be for 315 million people, but he will give up anything and everything to get elected.

        March 21, 2012 at 12:16 pm |
      • John

        Mike, you libs may think you know him, but you did not answer very basic questions I put forth. This leads me to think you don't know.
        I grew up in MA so I pretty much know what Romney is about. I do not like him, but he has a proven record to get things done, unlike what we have in the WH. Given my choices – Romney or BO – it is a very easy choice – it has to be Romney. And, guess what, if Hillary ran she would get my vote over both of them. I trust BO less now than I did 3+ years ago.

        John first of all what executive order are you talking about. Were you equally pissed when your rights were truly violated when bush and cheney passed the patriot act. It allowed your emails to be read, phones tapped with no search warrant.

        March 21, 2012 at 1:29 pm |
      • John

        Jean, I have read all of that. What I haven't been able to read are any articles he actually published. You point out accomplishments of others. I would bet you could find backround on them in relation to their grades, their writings, and so forth. One of the big questions is, by all accounts I have read from people who attended school with him he was a below average student at Occidential and he somehow got into Columbia. Of course nothing has actually been released from Occidential, not grades, no transcripts – heck, we don't even know his major. His name and/or image doesn't appear in any Occidential yearbooks or any of the weekly student newspapers for the years he attended.
        Apparently, you libs have enough information on this guy to elect him president once again. I do not.

I am not an american so don't panic thinking i am a lib. I live in canada and follow american polictics cause its funny how you guys shoot yourself in the foot by voting against your own wishes. Health care here is free and will pay more if the govt ask me to do so. When a country is in recession,business don't hire or spend money its the govt that has to do it. If Obama did not do the stumulus i am sure you won't even have a computer or phone to use and spill your nonsense online. The govt have to spend money to make sure your society doesn't collapse. This is one thing i don't understand,a president does things for his people,spends money on his people not some stupid war or another country and he is called names.

      Actually a few forgery experts looked at the birth cert. and all of them said it was a fake/forgery. I hope who ever gets the nomination brings out the fact that he spent millions covering up his past not just his birth cert. everything has been sealed and hidden what is he trying to hide? When this comes to light this will be the biggest fraud ever perpertrated on the american people. the good news is every law he passed can be revoked/cancelled

Obama legitimate to uphold the office... LET IT GO! you are intent on getting him out off office, there is one path... VOTE! get your friends and family and have them VOTE! persuade them to vote like you if you like but VOTE! is the one true way to do this... not thru some made up nonsensical imaginary plot that will surely destroy America...

    President Obama ws the single most heavily vetted candidate in American history. You idiots even went to Indonesia to interview his grade school classmates.

    Nice try, nimrod.

      Bob, you are out of you mind if you think BO was vetted at all... Tell me who paid for his college, tell me what he wrote about while he was in school. This guy has hung around with radicals and racists for most of his adult life. 20 years in the Rev Wright's church and he didn't hear any of the hate white people speech's being spewed in 20 years? How about hanging around with terrorists like Bill Ayers? He told the press he only met him in passing and they went with it. No other president is taken at their work as much as this administration because the press loves him.
      Maybe at some point you will realize Bush hasn't been president for over 3 years. I won't defend the guy because he was almost as bad as BO as a president.

        John,
        the real question here is who REALLY cares who vetted who? I can guarantee you that once the GOP found out that Obama was the Dem candidate he most certainly was vetted and ANY dirt they could find was FOUND! The birther thing is old hat and honestly, incredibly boring, yet folks like you continue to have spoutrage on it.
        So.. Mr. Expert.. when was it that Bush's Air Reserve orders/history – you know, the place daddy got him hidden so he wouldn't have active duty – was "revealed". Sure wasn't BEFORE the Supreme Court elected to office.

        March 21, 2012 at 4:34 pm |
    • Name*Liz Carter

      Thanks Bob...I didn't think so! I was just about to ask John for his sources. LOL! The main point I was making anyway was that we Dems weren't out here whinning, weeping, and wailing that he turn them loose anyway! John rebutted my point by telling me that Bush's papers got out before he was President...had nothing to do with what I said!! Even if it had the slightes bit of truth in it...I was saying WE LIBS DIDN'T CARE!! As always, we trusted the 'VETTING COMMITTEE'! If they'd received and were satisfied with the items presented to THEM in the BUSH Presidential Candidacy application then it was alright with us!! They didn't have to prove anything to us, one on one!! We didn't run around kicking and screaming about where's his birth ceritificate?? His transcripts?? His editorials?? His comments?? His 'servic' Timesheet, His DD-214, His books?? (Did he have any?) His thoughts; past and present?? His dreams?? Bob...we just didn't do it, did we?? The media gave us what they wanted us to know about BUSH period!! Oh yeah, and at the end of the day..he was always 'the cowboy hero'!! Like they've done with every President so far...but it seems with THIS President, the media has taken on this whole dog & pony show style of 'vetting' this man to another level!! They've subtly and often overtly sent mixed messages out to the illiterate protraying 'pro", yet 'con' perceptions of Obama...causing the stupid to start an internet firetsorm of ignorance and biggotry! Fighting and killing on the streets!! They along with the stupid are still 'vetting' the man and he's now been President for going on 4 years!! Once Bush and any other former President was PRESIDENT...the vetting process was over!! Then they have the nerve to call President Obama The Campaigner-in- Chief..LOL! I say why not? What do they expect? They along with the coersion of the media are still VETTING him!! These loons are responsible for holding him in a perpetual 'campaigning' mode anyway!! He has to delay whatever he's working on to come out and explain the new vetting issue of the day, before he can go back to work as President!! They are pathetic!! Thanks again...BOB!

        Well said, couldn't agree with you more! I've been so disgusted with the media since Day 1 of this Presidency. I cringe whenever I hear the whining Repubs yell "LIBERAL MEDIA" when all the media has done and is still doing is tearing down & questioning everything Obama does. The killing of Osama Bin Laden should have been in the news for the normal 2 week cycle but how much coverage did it get – maybe 2 days! PATHETIC!! If that was Bush, his face would be on Mt. Rushmore by now.

"We actually looked at the report given out today during Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's announcement that he believes President Obama's birth certificate is a forgery, and there is a grand total of zero new information in it.
        In fact, the report prepared by Mara Zebest - who was at the press conference today - is a rewritten version of a report she released in June."

        Full details here – and plenty other places.

      If there was conclusive evidence that Obama was not born in the U.S., Boehner would have been all over it. Boehner himself knows this is nothing but BS but enjoys anyone going after Obama. You guys look like the three stooges poinding on northing else other than your ignorance. I can't stop laughing averytime I see "BIrthers"!

    records from 2004...

    President Bush, trying to calm a political storm, ordered the release of all of his Vietnam-era military records Friday to counter Democrats’ suggestions that he shirked his duty in the Texas Air National Guard.

    Hundreds of pages of documents detailed Bush’s service in the Guard in Texas and his temporary duty in Alabama while working on a political campaign there in the early 1970s. Democrats have questioned whether Bush ever showed up for duty in Alabama.

    “The president felt everything should be made available to the public,” White House press secretary said. “There were some who sought to leave a wrong impression that there was something to hide when there is not.”

    Bush’s service record has been an issue in each of his presidential campaigns and resurfaced this year when Terry McAuliffe, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said Bush had been AWOL – absent without leave – during his time in Alabama.

    Democrats hope to capitalize on the issue and undermine Bush’s election strength on national security issues by contrasting his service in the Guard, where he was a pilot who did not see combat, with that of Sen. John Kerry, the decorated Vietnam War veteran who is the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination.

      You are wrong. I do not hate anyone. BO has often visted Vets who are injured. That is a great thing. Obamacare has some really good things in it, but also some really bad things. Equal pay for woman law he passed is a great thing. He cut salaries for exec's who got bailout money – that was a great thing. Credit card accountability law is great. I can go on, but I can also list a ton of stuff that outweighs the good he has done.
      You libs are classic. You do not understand how anyone can disagree with you. You think you are right when you are wrong. That falls under ignorance. I feel sorry you have to live your life this way.

    John – I have exclusive info that three of Romney's kids disagree with their dad and plan on voting for Obama in the general election. Of course they will not admit it to the media out of respect for their dad. They also told my source that their dad admitted he was born in Mexico. So I think you need to have your experts look at his birth certificate because his background story does not check out.

    March 21, 2012 at 3:45 pm |
  21. Mark_Htown

    On my trip to Crawford texas to speak to Bush JR. I found out from locals that Romney came across as an illegal from Mexico and was working as a ranch hand earning cash to send back to his family across the boarder. At some point the Bush family found him and had the military plant an advanced CPU in his brain. From there he formed Bain Capital and the rest is history. Word is that CPU was scheduled to to be upgraded but the Obama administration found out and prevented the procedure. The chip is now shorting out and that is why Romney can not put together a clear message. FYI – the original prototype was implanted in Rick Perry.

We are now suffering inflation due to the sinking dollar and obama has done nothing to solve this issue...that is except go into Libyia because their dictator promised to sell their oil in other currencies (the country was out of money partly due to the sinking dollar)... Obama has done nothing to help us economically...every move has been to make it appear he is doing something...it is all about obama...not the American people and our long range health as a country.

How in the world could Obama be arrogant and ignorant?? In the real world, arrogance doesn't sleep in the same bed with ignorance! LOL! I'll give you he may be a little arrogant, and he has just as much right to be as all other former Presidents had!! OMG!

      Thanks Mario...that's what I always thought. Well was even actually told by my father and other family members. My husband said the same thing. He said a soldiers and marines were sent to do a job; airmen and seaman were sent to do a job, and whether they agreed with the mission personally or not...it was his duty to complete it and not to reprimand or even question the decisions of the Commander-in-Chief, follow orders and remain neutral, at least publicly, and hold support of those in authority over you. In other words...salute the chain of command. Yep...that's what I was told. That causes me to wonder about the mindset of those veterans like Jerry, who are forever putting down the President! And not just about his politics, militarily and otherwise, but personally!! It's terrible!! They even have troops discreditting the decisions made by Obama and his war room advisors, streamed in from overseas, still in active duty. Many of us hated the Vietnam War, but our military had to keep their opinions to themselves...talk about it quietly to their wives and families, maybe, but certainly not in a public open forum!! What changed? Well we both know don't we?? It is a sad day for America! Her so-called or so-claimed 'past' has come back to haunt her!!

You said Obama hung out with radicals and racists all his life??..how evil of you!! Well I guess we are to assume he was raised by racists and radicals, went to school at Occidental and Harvard with racists and radicals, taught law to racists and radicals, as he organized communities for racists and radicals. Oh, he went to a Christian Church who's minister is a racist!! John...If I were an evangelist or a minister, you'd have to call me a racist too. I'd be just like Pastor Wright, Al Sharpton, and Louis Farrahkhan! I would teach my flock the truth about the underbelly of 'Americanism'! I'd teach them to pray for discernment on how to know it whenever they come across it......'Ameracism'! That's just my conjugated word for American Racism. I would tell them the signs and wonders to look for and to not be fooled or never believe 'WE have overcome', until we ALL have overcome. If any one of us still suffers, and especially when it's not due to anything we did....WE have not overcome! And I'd even venture on out to teach that if there is ANY American who's still suffering...we all suffer. That would just come from the GOD in me. Until this nation actually becomes 'one nation, under GOD, indivisible, and with liberty and justice for AL', I guess you will be calling me a racist. When I'm just like what you just claimed yourself to be or do...I call'em like I see'em too!! If it walks and talks like a duck...it must be a duck!
