New Obama button features his birth certificate

TAMPA – Last week, the re-election campaign of President Barack Obama went ballistic when Republican Mitt Romney, in his home state of Michigan, quipped that no one ever asked for his birth certificate.

Apparently, outrage can be assuaged by a profitable copyright.

This afternoon, my other-media colleague Jamie Dupree sent word that the Obama campaign store is now selling campaign buttons and bumperstickers featuring the president’s birth certificate:

obamabutton

The price tag: $5.

Good for him. I think President Obama is has been more than gentlemanly about all of his hoopla about his birthplace, which is Hawaii. None of this would be happening if he wasn’t a black man from Hawaii. President Obama is just as American as the rest of us. The GOP should be ashamed of itself for all of this nonsense and its belief that insulting most American’s intelligence is a good thing. I hope they roast and are drowned in Tampa – couldn’t happen to a nice group of bigots.

Who freakin’ cares? Anything can be photoshopped. Birth certificate or tax return. I am sure this button now makes everything official.

At Least the Republicans know that this President has a sense of Humor!

Now tell me Mitt, Where is the CARFAX on your Taxes?….You are selling America a USED CAR. A 1950’s version of Ann’s Caddie, so why not show US the paper WORK on it? and release those dust covered ALL important TAXES for America to see? or Do you have to return to Paris France to retrieve them? as you did when America was asking OF YOU to go to VietNAM!

Tell us MITT, PLEASE!

“New Obama button features his birth certificate”

I wonder which one of the many different birth certificates appears on his campaign button? Maybe he could have included a statement about how he obtained a Social Security number from a state he had never been to before? Better yet, he could explain why he claimed to be from Kenya and then decided he was from the U. S.

Wow, Obama may have every court including the Supreme Court fooled, but you’re just too smart for that nonsense cc! You have all this evidence that the courts never dreamed of. It must be one of the liberal conspiracies. The liberal media must have infiltrated the conservatives on the Supreme Court. We are lucky to have your intelligence on this blog cc.

Too bad the US judicial system never heard of Photoshop.

Btw, I just planted a fake birth announcement in a North Carolina paper in the name of Omar Akbar in case a conservative from Iraq ever wants to be president of the USA. 2 can play that game. With Photoshop anyone can be President.

It’s sad really. TD makes rational conversation for a while and then blows any credibility he has gained by sounding like a birther. People don t understand that the most credible of us will not step into the absurd just because people we often agree with make unfounded assertions. The birth issue is over and if you don’t believe that, I’m uninterested in anything else you have to say.

You bit. lol. I want to see his college applications not his BC because this is where it shows him applying as a foreign student for financial aid purposes (According to several Columbia classmates). This is the reason he threw out the BC issue to stop people from looking for this information.

Obama is dishonest

The birth certificate provided by Obama after many many months of legitimate requests has been proven beyond any shadow of a doubt to be a forgery (fake) by several competent document experts.

Claims that this issue have been settled in a court of law are completely erroneous……..the court cases thus far have been argued to death that the venue for the court case was incorrect. The validity determination of the bogus birth certificate has not been allowed to take place to date. The Supreme court has NOT ruled regarding this issue.

The obvious questions are as follows:

-Why did Obama refuse to provide his birth certificate and fight something so simple for soooo long IF he actually was born in Hawaii?

-Why is it that the birth certificate form Obama provided is a completely different format than any of the birth certificates issued from the hospital??

-Is it plausible that the Hospital in Hawaii had a “special” birth certificate form for Obama which does not match ANY birth certificate EVER issued at the hospital to any other person EVER???

-How in the world could there be a fire which just happens to destroy all of the birth certificates within approximately 1 year of Obama’s birth (only the period close to his birth)????

-Why has Obama had soooo many of his personal documents sealed and hidden from public access (his actual birth certificate, passports, college applications, college transcripts, choomgang history, etc.)?????

These are very interesting and very pertinent questions!
