Birther 2.0 – The New and Improved Birther

First, why is there ever a 2.0 anything??? Everybody who has bought computer stuff knows that the “1.0” of anything always has a few bugs in it. Plus, when “1.0” has been out for a while, the people who use it think of new stuff they would like it to do. And, ways to do the old stuff better. Birthers are no different. Just like anything, we can evolve over time to become better and more efficient at what we do. Just like consumer products, if we don’t evolve and improve, then we run the risk of becoming obsolete.

Just such a challenge faces us now. Birtherism, as a movement, began in response to questions about the eligibility of Obama to be a president. Was he born in America or Kenya? Did his dual citizenship prevent him from being eligible? So we asked the questions most Americans didn’t want to ask back in 2008. And at first, people thought we were crazy. But as time went on, and Obama refused to release anything beyond a short form birth certificate to a special group, the number of people having doubts grew and grew. In August 2010, a CNN poll showed 58% of Americans had some degree of doubt where Obama was born, ranging from those who definitely thought Obama was not born in the United States to those who thought he was probably born in the United states, but not definitely sure of it.

The legal questions have reached the end. The United States Supreme Court refused to hear the Kercher Case. This means that as a legal matter, the Vattel Birthers and British Citizen Birthers are out of luck. Most lawyers think that if Obama was born in the United States, then he is a Natural Born Citizen. Whether this is right or wrong is not the point. What it is, is just the law. That legal question went nowhere, and unless Congress takes it up, or changes the law, then it is just over.

Plus, as we enter 2011, there are indications that Obama is finally going to have to deal with the issue of where he was born. Neal Abercrombie, Gov. of Hawaii says he intends to do something about the doubts. Chris Matthews is calling for the Long Form. And in the words of many talking heads, “grown ups” are headed to the White House to assist Obama in running the government. The upshot of all this is that probably, we will finally see the Long Form.

This is why we need to become a new and improved birther. . .Birther 2.0. Because what if the document is credible and indicates that Obama was born in Hawaii, or Connecticut? Does that mean all the questions are answered??? Both legal and where??? I think NO!

Because what was always beneath the surface of Birtherism is still alive and kicking. The “NBC Legal” Birthers wanted to see a positive allegiance to the United States. The “Where was he born?” Birthers wanted to be sure Obama was an American President, someone who understood the responsibilities of the office of the Presidency towards all citizens, not just his own supporters.

Here is where my questions about WHY tie in both sides of Birtherism. Because trying to understand WHY Obama failed to resolve this issue for 3 years goes right back to the underlying concerns of both types of Birthers. Assuming Obama was born in Amerca, asking WHY it has taken this long to resolve the questions reveals that Obama most likely DOES NOT have an allegiance to America, but to his own political fortunes. He was willing to sell out America, imprison military officers, and keep the country in turmoil for three years because he thought it would gain him votes. That is the probable reason for not coughing up a long form Birth Certificate for so long.

Again, assuming that Obama was born in America, the “Where was he born?” type Birthers may finally have their questions answered. The worst thing we can do is to refuse to believe the Long Form if it is credible, because that is one of the things the Obots are crowing about. That we are just too stupid to believe anything, so why cough anything up??? If the documentation is credible, then we need to evolve to “2.0” and begin asking WHY??? Why did it take Obama so long to resolve this?

Asking WHY, does not mean that Obama has reached safe ground. Not by a long shot!!! I have been asking WHY for quite a while now, and I express the range of possible answers as KISS. As you can see, being born in Kenya is the nicest possible answer. The rest indicate that Obama has severe mental and psychological difficulties:

1. KENYA. He is born in Kenya.
2. IGNORANT. Obama is too ignorant to think of the simple answer.
3. SNOBBY. Obama thinks Americans are too stupid to believe the REAL THING!
4. SLIMY. Obama thinks it is OK to make some Americans look crazy if it gets him votes.

Those questions guarantee that the real problems with Obama come to light. And, there is NOTHING Obama can do to make those questions “obsolete.” Sorry, but his refusal to cough up the Long Form for 3 years can’t be undone. The fact that Obama “fiddled” while Col. Lakin went to prison, can’t be undone. The fact that Obama lets the taxpayer cough up Lakin’s cost of incarceration rather than cough up a long form, can’t be undone. Obama has put himself into the same position as a felon, who repents his crime only after he has been caught, found guilty, and is facing sentencing.

Changing our focus from WHERE and the NBC legal questions to WHY Obama hasn’t resolved this, guarantees that Obama will finally have to pay a price for his Machiavellian Chicago Thug Tactics. WHY, is the question he can’t duck and cover from. Asking WHY, means Birther 2.0 will be the best version ever!

Backroom Obama – Understanding the Flurry of Birther Activity!

What we got here. . . is failure to communicate. (The Captain from Cool Hand Luke, 1967)

First of all, what is a “backroom”, and is it one word or two??? It is usually just one word. The Internet defines a “backroom” as a:

Noun: A room near the rear of a premises, especially one only accessible to a privileged few and that can be used as an inconspicuous meeting place; Characterized by secrecy or anonymity; The meeting place of a group of leaders who make their decisions via private negotiations;The meeting place used by an inconspicuous controlling group.”

Adjective: Marked by the exercise of inconspicuous control and maneuvering.”

Sooo, if you have been reading the news lately, you will notice that all of a sudden very smart political people, like Chris Matthews and Neil Abercrombie, the new governor of Hawaii, are calling for Obama to cough up his Long Form birth certificate, or just plain saying they are going to cough it up themselves in the case of Neil Abercrombie, the new governor of Hawaii(D).

Why oh why would this happen now??? Because it has been 2 1/2 years since Obama last released anything (July 13, 2008) when he gave the alleged COLB to that special group to put a PICTURE on the Internet. Faithful readers of my blogs will recognize the inherent Treachery of Images!!!

The Treachery of Images

Here is what I think is going on in Obama’s backroom. First, we start with KISS, which is my way of expressing the possible reasons WHY Obama hasn’t resolved the very simple question of where he was born.

1. KENYA. He is born in Kenya.
2. IGNORANT. Obama is too ignorant to think of the simple answer.
3. SNOBBY. Obama thinks Americans are too stupid to believe the REAL THING!
4. SLIMY. Obama thinks it is OK to make some Americans look crazy if it gets him votes.

Assume for the purposes of this Internet Article, that the reason is No. 4, SLIMY, that Obama was born in America, and he has just been cynically using some Americans to make other Americans vote for him. the reasoning being, “If I (Obama) can make some Americans look crazy by NOT releasing my Long Form, then a lot more other Americans will vote me and my party because we will look soooo sane and reasonable, where the opposition will just look crazy.”

Personally, I can just see the dead fish guy, Rahm Emanual, advising Obama to do this because from what everybody says he is just a totally ruthless person, who belongs in Chicago. But here is the problem. The plan BACKFIRED! Instead of just a few people looking crazy, there were all of a sudden like 58% of Americans who ended up having some degree of doubt about where Obama was born, a lot of these being Democrats.

Uh oh! Then, here comes the midterm elections and KERBLAM!, the Democrats just get SHELLACKED! Somebody just got hoisted on their own petard!!! (Which is a really interesting saying, if you read Wiki). Sooo, now Obama has to back out of this plan because it is obvious to anybody with COMMON SENSE that it just didn’t work. Obama realizes he has really screwed up, and even comedians are making jokes about his citizenship, soooo he has to do something, but being Obama, he sure can’t just come out and say he was wrong. OH NO!!! Not him.

Sooo, he gets Chris Matthews and Abercrombie to stir this stuff up, with the plan being that Obama will just give them the paperwork like it is no big deal or something. And that it was all their idea and he, Obama, could just not care much one way or the other, tra la la la.

That is what I think is going on. Because this really has been a public relations NIGHTMARE for Obama. If I am right, then Gov. Abercrombie will get permission to release the Long Form, and Obama can try to put this behind him, which who knows, maybe he was born in Hawaii or Connecticut, and we will finally know the WHERE for sure.

But that will leave the WHY unanswered. WHY a American president would sit around on his doofus for over 2 1/2 years and do nothing, while millions of Americans doubt the integrity of their system, while military officers go to prison for questioning the validity of the president, and his own party just gets SHELLACKED.

Like I have said for a long time, the WHY is the real question.

Abercrombie Punks Out!!! – The Obama Drama Continues!

Coward - One, who in an emergency, thinks with his feet. (Ambrose Bierce)

Gov. Neal Abercrombie of Hawaii punked out of his promise to put an end to the Birther controversy concerning WHERE Obama was born. The headlines have been all over the place for the last few weeks. First, Abercrombie vowed to put an end to questions out of respect for Obama’s parents, supposedly his good friends. Abercrombie started out knowing all about the infant Obama, then back-pedaled that he actually hadn’t seen the infant of his alleged good friends.

Then, the headline proclaimed Abercrombie couldn’t find the documents, presumably the Long Form Birth Certificate. Then, yes Abercrobmie had found them after all! Ooopsies, it wasn’t the Long Form Birth Certificate after all, it was some kind of entry in a index buried in the bowels of the archives. Oooh, the Chthonian Imagery!!!

Abercrombie the Explorer, on his hands and knees, lantern in hand, digging his way through boxes and file cabinets in darkened labyrinths, pith helmet on his head, searching for the lost map, er uh Long Form, while pythons and painted pygmies glared menacingly at him from the shadowy recesses of bankers boxes. . .Oh wait! Frujinko or whatever her name was said she had seen and verified the original birth certificate. Darn cell phones must not work in Hawaii, or he would have just called her and asked where it was.

Now, we know not whether or what Abercrombie may have found, but whatever it was or wasn’t we will not get to see it! Oh no, the Hawaiian privacy laws prevent it! What??? A document, the PICTURE of which is supposedly on the Internet for all to see is protected by privacy laws??? OH Tee Hee! Tee Hee!

Here is what the story says:

Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie will end his quest to prove President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii because it’s against state law to release private documents, his office said today. State Attorney General David Louie told the governor he can’t disclose an individual’s birth documentation without a person’s consent, Abercrombie spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said. “There is nothing more that Gov. Abercrombie can do within the law to produce a document,” said Dela Cruz. “Unfortunately, there are conspirators who will continue to question the citizenship of our president.”

Abercrombie drops effort to disclose more information on Obama birth certificate

Oh you just betcha we will “continue to question the citizenship of our president.” Some of us will even ask the more important question, not WHERE was Obama born, but WHY a U.S. President would continue to leave this very simple question un-resolved for three years??? WHY??? There are no good reasons. There are several bad choices you can pick from (KISS):

1. KENYA. He is born in Kenya.
2. IGNORANT. Obama is too ignorant to think of the simple answer.
3. SNOBBY. Obama thinks Americans are too stupid to believe the REAL THING!
4. SLIMY. Obama thinks it is OK to make some Americans look crazy if it gets him votes.

Meanwhile, the Obama Drama continues. My investment advice for 2011- – -go long Orville Redenbacher and butter!

It Depends On The Meaning Of The Words “Birth Certificate”!!!

I'm Gonna Wash Those Birthers Right Out Of My Hair!!! Or Maybe Not.

It is said that history repeats itself and the recent tsunami of confusion that has washed over the Hawaii Governor’s office is proof of this. Gov. Neal Abercrombie pledged that he would personally put an end to the questions of WHERE Obama was born by releasing documentary proof. Which was assumed by most reasonable people to mean the Long From Birth Certificate with verifiable information on it. Much like the infamous statement by former President Clinton, however, we are finding that for Obama Apologists, words sort of mean whatever they need them to mean at the moment.

For refreshers, let us look at President Clinton’s statement:

“It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the–if he–if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not–that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement….Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true.”

Uh, yeah! This really wasn’t a hard question. The correct answer would have been, “Yes.”

Now Gov. Neal Abercrombie is having similar problems with what constitutes proof. As an English Internet Article says:

Pressure was mounting on Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie today amid increasing confusion over whether President Obama was born there. Abercrombie said on Tuesday that an investigation had unearthed papers proving Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961. He told Honolulu’s Star-Advertiser: ‘IT actually exists in the archives, written down,’ he said.

But it became apparent that what had been discovered was an unspecified listing or notation of Obama’s birth that someone had made in the state archives and not a birth certificate. And in the same interview Abercrombie suggested that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Barack Obama may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health.

Daily Mail Internet Article

The confusion is particularly perplexing when one considers what the former Hawaii DOH person, Frujinko whatever, said

“Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai‘i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai‘i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.”

Soooo, she supposedly saw and VERIFIED the original birth certificate was there, but Abercrombie can’t find IT, or maybe he can, but who knows.

Uh, yeah! This really isn’t a hard thing to do. Or will we hear, “I guess it depends on what the meaning of IT is”??? If you have the Long Form Birth Certificate, then produce IT, so there can be a resolution of WHERE Obama was born. Which still DOESN’T resolve the much more important question of WHY it has taken Obama three years or more to do something. Oh wait! Obama STILL isn’t doing anything.
