Another Birther Proponent Debunked

Dave Wiegel has the story about the holes in the story of a Birther proponent who claims to have been a “senior election clerk” in Hawaii in 2008. At least, they’re holes if you hold to the antiquated notion of an objective, knowable reality.

  1. Zelsdorf Ragshaft III says:

    Has anyone seen a long form birth certificate with Obama’s and an attending doctors name on it? You can debunk all you wish but until someone produces an actual document, not a statement from some unseen individual stating he knows someone who heard his cousin say they read about an official who may have seen said document, doubt should remain. By the way, why no curiosity about college transcripts? We know everything there was to know about George W. Bush, John McCain and nothing about Barack Hussein Obama. The real question is where his father was born and what country he was a citizem of. To be a natural born citizen, both parents must be citizens of the United States of America. Something about loyalty. With this President, it is completely clear why the founders included that requirement in the qualifications.

  2. Zelsdorf Ragshaft III says:

    I just read what Wiegel wrote. Once again I am asked to take someones word for something I have no way of verifying. Who knows if these two ever worked together? Seems like the guy who made the claim explained in detail how he had access to the information. This can be settled easily. Democrats seem to have a real problem with their pasts. Kerry with his military records which he has yet to release and Obama who must hide everything, for some unknown reason. Obama is a proven liar. Why so many want to take his word at face value is simply amazing.

    How do we know where Dave Weigel was born? Huh? Huh?????

    If Obama was really born in the United States, there’d be video of the delivery on YouTube. CAUSE THAT’S HOW AMERICA ROLLS!

    Zels, your comments on this subject are an embarrassment. I actually feel bad for you. If anyone ever thought you a fool, you have removed all doubt.

  5. Steve Plunk says:

    I always wondered why the doctors, nurses, and whoever else worked at the hospital where Obama was born have never made claim to being there. Wouldn’t that garner them 15 seconds of fame and give them some cocktail party stories? Surely some are still around.

    Didn’t you know, Steve? All those people in Kenya were assassinated so as to protect the legitimacy of the One…

    AIP, Must serious questions always be greeted with snark when no serious answers are available? Do you have a serious answer or just weak humor deflect the question?
