Romney Makes Birth Certificate Joke?

According to news reports, Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential hopeful, Willard Mitt Romney made a joke about his birth certificate at a rally in Michigan while trying to make a connection – any connection – with his home state. Reportedly Willard said, “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”

Wow, really? Maybe no one ever asked you because you’re not black, and you don’t have an Islamic surname name?

Of course Willard’s attempt at levity received enthusiastic applause from his audience, but then again these are the same kinds of people who cheered executions in Texas as well as the hypothetical death of a man with no health insurance during the GOTP primary debates.

The President’s campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said Romney was embracing the most extreme elements in the conservative movement.

“Throughout this campaign, Governor Romney has embraced the most strident voices in his party instead of standing up to them,” he said. “It’s one thing to give the stage in Tampa to Donald Trump, Sheriff Arpaio, and Kris Kobach. But Governor Romney’s decision to directly enlist himself in the birther movement should give pause to any rational voter across America.”

Romney claims he believes President Obama was born in the United States, “I think the citizenship test has been passed. I believe the president was born in the United States. There are real reasons to get this guy out of office,” he told Larry Kudlow in April 2011. “The man needs to be taken out of office but his citizenship isn’t the reason why.”

So, why make a lame joke about birth certificates then? Still trying to connect with the extreme right of the party perhaps? Worried they might vote for someone else? It was a brainless thing to do whatever the reason and makes him look desperate to everyone but his most ardent followers.

Joe the Plumber says we should shoot immigrants?

During a fundraiser for Arizona Republican Tea Party (GOTP) State Senator Lori Klein featuring Ohio GOTP congressional candidate Samuel Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the Plumber”, the from the 2008 presidential campaign poster boy reportedly said, “You know, for years, I’ve said, you know, ‘Put a damn fence on the border going to Mexico and start shooting.”

“I’m running for Congress, and that should be a bad thing to say. You know what, that’s how I feel. I’m not going to hide it because I’m running for an office. I want my borders protected. I’m very, very adamant about that,” he continued.

Democratic Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, who’s running against “the plumber”, and who’s not just favored, but heavily favored to win, condemned his comments. “Joe, the Plumber’s comments have no place in a civil society,” she said in a statement. “A Member of Congress is sworn to uphold the Constitution, not to take the law into his own hands. He should take back his words and apologize to everyone who respects life, the Constitution and the rule of law.”

But Joe the Plumber wasn’t the only conservative celebrity in attendance; Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio also appeared at the fundraiser, according to the Prescott eNews.

Arpaio’s most recent publicity stunts been to launch his own private little probe into President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. The President of course has released his birth certificate showing he was in fact born in Honolulu in 1961 and Hawaiian officials have confirmed that fact, but to a red neck racist like Arpaio facts just aren’t good enough.

“As far as the birth certificate, I’m not done with it. I’ve taken a lot of heat on that, but let me make one thing clear: We are looking at forged documents. We’re not looking at whether he was born in Kenya or anything else, we are looking at fraudulent government documents from Hawaii, that’s been our thrust all along and we’re going to continue that. We know we have proof they’re fraudulent, but nobody wants to touch them; nobody, the candidates for president all way down the line, that’s sad, that is really sad.”

“I’m a big guy and I can take the heat,” he said. “I’m just trying to do what I think is right for Maricopa County and the United States of America.”

The crowd applauded him, and someone yelled, “Go get ’em Joe!”

So, we have two red neck racist good ol’ boys – apparently with collective IQ of a sand flea – preaching to a group of red neck racists – who also have the collective IQ of a sand flea – one preaching the murder of immigrants and the other, a county sheriff from Arizona, claiming he’s investigating the state of Hawaii; quite the confederacy of dunces we have in the GOTP today, yes sir, quite the confederacy of dunces.

Is President Obama a U.S. Citizen?

Duh.

I’m sorry but this question is so absurd it’s laughable.

Who really believes – besides Rush, Hannity, et al, and their whacked out listeners – that President Obama is not a citizen of the United States?

Well, U.S. Army Reserve Major  Stefan Frederick Cook, set to deploy to Afghanistan, doesn’t believe he is, and it’s for that reason he refused to deploy with his unit. The Major’s orders to deploy have since been rescinded.

Sorry Major, but your argument’s a load of BS and you know it. So, you said you wouldn’t accept orders from the lawfully elected President because you’re a birther? You wouldn’t go to Afghanistan because it’s Obama ordering it? But Major, the conflict in Afghanistan started under President Bush, not President Obama. So, the reality is you’re just opposed to deploying, not because it was Obama ordering it.

Your entire, specious argument was that since President Obama wasn’t born in the United States, he can’t be the President, and if he can’t be the President, then the order being issued for you to deploy is not a lawful order?

Lucky for you this is not a declared war, otherwise you might have been facing the death penalty under UCMJ for refusing to obey a lawful order.

Fact is Major Stefan Frederick Cook, and all the other cartoon characters who believe this nonsense need to grow up. If there had been any, and I do mean any, evidence that President Obama wasn’t a citizen Hillary Clinton’s people would have discovered it.
