Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) proved himself to be of questionable intelligence this weekend when he told supporters at a town hall this Saturday, that he would back a bill to investigate the authenticity of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
Right Wing Watch posted audio of Yoho’s comments from a Saturday town hall, in which the Florida Republican said he called his colleague Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) to pledge his support for a potential bill that would launch an investigation into whether the president’s birth certificate is fake.
The audience applauded Yoho, but an attendee asked the congressman if such a bill would be an appropriate use of time. The crowd responded “no,” and Yoho agreed by labeling it a “distraction.”
“But I’m gonna check into that because in order to have freedom, you have to have economic freedom,” he said, before pivoting back to why Stockman’s bill mattered.
“But then they said, well, if [the birth certificate] is truly illegal, he shouldn’t be there and we can get rid of everything and I said I agree with that,” Yoho said.
If I were President Obama and there were no birther movement, I would invent one.
It destroys the credibility of anyone who talks about it. To moderates
and liberals, the birther movement is the right-wing equivalent of
those drooling liberals who were calling the 2000 election stolen,
years after the election was over.
Not only has Obama been proven to be American born many times over, the only person helped by the whole business is Barack Obama. Every time a Republican brings up the birther nonsense it makes the rest of the GOP look stupid by association. Not only has the birther argument been proven wrong many times over,
it takes attention from the real winnable arguments, such as Obama is a failed corrupt president.
The birthers can never explain that Barack Obama’s birth announcements that ran in
local Hawaiian newspapers soon after he was born. For those to be fake, Obama’s mom would
have to have seen into the future, known he was going to run for
president, and planted those announcements in 1961.
only other explanation was that someone at the DNC performed one of
those Star Trek maneuvers, when they fly toward the sun to pick up
speed, circle the sun and come back in the past, like they did in Star
Trek IV with the Klingon Bird-of-Prey.
Since neither mother/seer or the Klingon Bird-of-Prey are rational explanations I will to reject the birther movement until
someone comes up with convincing evidence of time travel (I would even accept a Klingon Ship as long as
the cloaking device works).
For those of you who don’t believe that Obama is American born, look at
it a different way, as Andrew Brietbart, told Joseph Farrah during a Tea Party Convention in 2010, it is not a winning issue. Just like the
lugnuts who are still counting chads a decade after George Bush
defeated Al Gore, its not an argument one can win. Besides if the birther
thing was true, Joe Biden, the SCHMOTUS would have let is slip it out
The only one served by the Birther movement is Barack Hussein Obama,
because it gives him and his cronies the opportunity to dismiss the
entire lot of us. Barack Obama may
not be our kind of American, but he is a natural-born American never-the-less.
Lets fight against his policies, those are the arguments that we have a
chance of winning.
There is a second issue about Obama’s birth which I support. There are those who believe
that he was born in the United States but do not
believe that he was a “Virgin Birth,” like the mainstream media seem to believe, I fall into the group who denies he is of divine origin.
Rep. Ted Yoho and his ilk prove that anyone can be elected to Congress, even if they are not the sharpest crayon in the Crayola Box
