    Well please don't label me a birther because I don't really give a hoot. However, I have always wanted to see just one doctor signature, hear one nurse say she was there, see one hospital claim Obama was born there. Because of the silly behavior of the Press Secretary on this subject, I have always had that nagging feeling of being schlepped. That dude is soooo creepy and so untrustworthy.

    Instead we get a boring green certificate of who knows what with not a single real signature, and a grainy print from a paper decades ago. Just have that feeling I am left hanging. I really was hoping for something more exciting and controversial. Nothing like watching politicians squirm.

    In one simple motion, the hopes of all birthers come crashing to an end by the judge in the army case declaring "Obama's eligibility is not relevant"

    http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/09/02/birther.court.martial/index.html

    End of the line for anyone actually hoping to see those doctors' signatures. Just is not gonna happen.

    Oh, I will throw in a jab against CNN. EVERY article about the birther issue, EVERY article, CNN puts a picture of Obama's printed green certificate at the top of the article, as though that answers all open questions. It is an obvious attempt to sway public opinion, not report on this Army guy.

    This is strikingly similar to posts that begin with:

    "I'm not a racist, but..."
    "I'm not a homophobe, but..."

    Except really, don't i have to believe the republican politician in Hawaii that says he was born there? Does any credible person actually believe he was not born in Hawaii?

    I really have no choice at this point, darn it.

    the judge did not smother anything.

    If you read the article he ruled that Obama birth has no legal barring on the case.

    The orders came from the guys legal superiors. Not Obama. So it has no bearing. Now if lets say the general who reported to Obama refused to give the orders to send some one there then yes Obama birth place would be relevant to the case.
    In this one it has zero relevance hence the reason the judge threw it out.

    It would be like the guy arguing to saw I was the one who order him to be sent there. Again that argument would have no legal bearing since I am not his legal superior who ordered him to do that.

    Nurses in pediatric wards, not to mention the doctors, deliver hundreds of babies a year. You'd honestly believe the fuzzy recollection of a peds nurse from nearly 50 years ago?

    So, your gut is telling you that the Press Secretary faked Obama's birth certificate using a time machine? Or that because you don't like Gibbs you're willing to make a huge leap in logic that Obama's birth is part of a massive conspiracy?

    So, the document doesn't have holograms like a Topps baseball card. Have you looked at your birth certificate?

    It should answer the question. The guy's case is based on the utterly incorrect assertion that Obama was not born in the United States. The argument is inherently flawed and CNN is doing a service to its readers by pointing this out at every opportunity. Frankly, the whole thing is ridiculous.

    Moreover, what about the fact that Fox News appears to have completely ignored today's results?

    There is a saying in the therapy world "everything before the but is bulls##t" not often wrong in my experience.

    I want to see George Bush's birth certificate. Why hasn't he shown it to us? I personally think he was born in Hell and is the Son of Satan. Why doesn't he just go on TV, and show us his birth certificate?

    God, you birthers really take the cake. You really do. So much of this country is full of absolute morons. It really is shameful.

    Of course. Not to mention the fact that Obama has already shown his birth certificate. The whack job birthers just chose to say it was fake. They would do the same with any evidence presented. Because it's all just a big conspiracy to get a Muslim socialist in office and take away all our freedoms! :rolleyes:

    Jesus Christ- I'm so ashamed that we have so many idiots in this country. I really am. I apologize to the rest of the world for our collective stupidity.

    Other than the first few presidents who were born of course on British soil, I don't believe the issue has ever come up before. McCain's birth in Panama also led to a lot of interest in what place of birth means in this election.

    I'm sure that a person must have to submit a birth certificate or something similar but I honestly don't know.

    I asked this question in the Obama's a Muslim thread the other day...

    How is it possible you could become President without the FBI and CIA thoroughly checking you out beforehand?

    One of them is human whereas the other one is a dog. One of them is also President of the United States of America whereas the other one is a dog.

    Hope that clears it up for you :D

    Planted, after the fact. It's do-able. :rolleyes:

    Let's have this thread die a quick death, for I cannot wait to see what the OP comes up with next time.

    And he will.

    I think Bo is less likely to get kicked out of a Tea Party Cafe or off of a Tea Party Bus.

    Then why does the entire rest of your post contradict that statement.

    I know you've seen this out of the political playbook, repeat something enough and it's somehow true in the publics eye. That said, you picked the last place to pull that crap because you will be called out time and time again on it and any other oh so shallow tactics.

    "I'm no birther, but man there are soooo many questions left 'unanswered' here" <-- That don't fly here in PRSI.
