As reported at the Dallas News, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) released his birth certificate this weekend. Hmm, it took Barack Obama how long to do the same?
From the TPM, Ted Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born. The popular Conservative Republican is most likely paving the way for a 2016 run for President. This is going to open up an interesting debate. Those that went out of their way to back Barack Obama in his birth certificate fight will now oppose Ted Cruz. And those who went against Obama will now defend Cruz. It would appear that if it was good for Obama, it is also good for Cruz.
In an effort to repudiate suggestions that he is ineligible to be president of the United States, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) released his birth certificate Sunday to The Dallas Morning News.
The birth certificate confirmed that the Texas Republican was born Dec. 22, 1970 in Calgary, Alberta. Because he was born to an American mother, Cruz instantly became an American citizen. But he also immediately became a Canadian citizen under the country’s law. Given his dual citizenship, Cruz could not only launch a White House bid, but he could also run for Canadian Parliament. According to legal experts, he’ll remain a citizen of both countries unless he renounces his citizenship.
Outrage After Dem Party Leader Insult Nikki Haley’s Indian Heritage … Says They’ll Send GOP Governor Nicki Haley “Back to Wherever the Hell She Came From” (Update: Harpootilan Defends Comment)
Talk about your double standards … Who knew the Democrat Chairman in South Carolina was a “birther”?
Republicans are outraged after South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootilan’s racist attack against Indian-American Governor Nicki Haley. The SC Democrat Party leader told supports at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center is Columbia, SC that they will send “Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.” Really Mr.Harpootilan, just where exactly is that, Gov. Haley was born in the USA. NikkinHaley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa in Bamberg, South Carolina, on January 20, 1972, to an Indian Sikh family. Imagine that, these are the same people who call those who question Barack Obama’s birth certificate and where he was born. Talk about your double standards? Its perfectly ok for Democrats to make racist comments. Where is the MSM outrage? Oh that’s right, Nikki Haley is a Republican.
Conservatives are outraged after a Democrat in South Carolina allegedly insulted Republican Gov. Nikki Haley’s Indian heritage at a party gathering in Columbia on Friday.
The state’s Democratic Party Chairman, Dick Harpootlian, is believed to have said the party will take on the Conservative in the next gubernatorial race and send ‘Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.’
Gov. Haley was born in the U.S. but her parents are from India.
Yahoo political reporter Chris Moody tweeted on Friday that Mr Harpootlian made the comment, in support of Democrat challenger Vince Sheheen, who has declared he will run for governor.
Please, had any such comment been made against Barack Obama or an individual of color who was a Democrat, everyone in the media, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be crying foul and the race card. Powerline reminds us of the past vicious comments that Harpootilan made against Nikki Haley and was allowed to get away with.
Harpootlian, a longtime Democratic figure who has a history of using harsh rhetoric, made the comments at the party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner just moments before Vice-President Joe Biden took the stage.
Asked what he meant by comment, Harpootlian wrote in an email: “Lexington County.”
Before being elected governor in 2010, Haley lived in the suburban Columbia county and represented the area in the state House.
As to whether he thought the comment could be seen as touching on her race and parents’ immigrant status, Harpootlian responded: “No, she was born in Bamberg [South Carolina] and lived in Lexington. Anybody implying anything different is attempting to feign insult.”
The Comedian “Hypocrite” in Chief: Obama Cracks “Racist” Birther Joke, Asks Hawaiian Boy if He Has His Birth Certificate? VIDEO
The Comedian in Chief, or is it the Hypocrite in Chief Barack Obama makes “birther” joke.
After Barack Obama and his insincere minions made it a federal issue when Mitt Romney made what was considered a “birther” joke on the campaign stump, what does Barack Obama do? Why of course he makes a birther joke of his own. As reported by The Hill, at a campaign stop in Orlando, FL Barack Obama cracked a “birther” joke when he asked a young boy who was born in Hawaii, if he had a birth certificate.
The Comedian in Chief keeping the birther meme alive …
The president made a stop at a local sports bar, Gator Dockside, where he made the rounds, speaking to patrons, according to a White House pool report.
At one table, Obama was told by an adult that a young boy at the table was “born in Hawaii.”
“You were born in Hawaii? You have a birth certificate?” the president asked, as the table broke into laughter.
Of course the corrupt, leftist main stream media complex and Obams’s minions will defend Obama’s comments as just a joke, making fun of birthers. It gets worse, the AP just plain did not even report that Obama attacked Romney just last month for making a birther joke. Unreal, that America can exist when the media has become nothing more than a propaganda tool for Democrats. This should never be allowed to fly. Not when Barack Obama and his mouth pieces whined incessantly that there was no place in the public or political discourse for “birther” comments. In the video below, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz stated that, “there is nothing funny to suggest that the President of the United States was not born in this country … It’s beneath some one who is running for President of the United States.” Hmm, so if the hypocritical LEFT does not want the story mentioned, why it it Obama that keeps the “birther” meme going? It would see that if its beneath the Office, that should apply to Obama as well.
The Obama team, however, quickly leaped on the remarks, releasing a web video saying that “America doesn’t need a birther-in-chief.”
“Holding out hope Romney had a vision for the middle class?,” the narrator said in the video. “Think again. Embracing unfounded conspiracy theories, distracting from real issues. America doesn’t need a birther-in-chief.”
As Weasel Zippers reminds us, According to the clowns on MSNBC birther jokes are racist.
Who actually thinks it is appropriate, responsible or even ethical for Obama to cry bloody, political murder when anyone dare reference his birther certificate, yet Obama continues the narrative in order to further distract and demonize others by purposely continuing the controversy?
The Romney “Birther” Joke Continues … LEFT Trots Out Anti-Romney Misspelled Birther Airplane Banner … “America is Better ‘then’ Birtherism”
At least they spelled “birtherism” correctly …
It appears that the Romney “Birther” joke continues on, except this time its not because of Romney’s comment, it is because of the Left’s rebuttal. A funny thing happened on the way to the LEFT trying to call out Romney for his joking “birther” comment, the LEFT made the joke themselves after they misspelled their airplane banner. Oops.

One day after Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney quipped that “no one’s ever ever asked to see” his birth certificate, a plane towed a banner over his Ohio rally declaring “America is better” than “birtherism.”
The problem? The banner contained an elementary grammatical error: It used “then” instead of “than.”
With all the issues that are going wrong in the United States, this is what the LEFT flies behind a plane on a banner. I guess America is better than 42 consecutive months over 8%, record number of Americans on food stamps, record federal debt, out of control Obama spending in the $trillions, millions of Americans leaving the work force and an EPIC Failure of Hope & Change was too long.
UPDATE I: According to the Daily Caller, Maeve Reston at the LA Times says MoveOn.org is responsible for this blunder at the Romney-Ryan campaign rally in Powell, Oiho. That makes sense, because they’re super-smart.
Ed Discoll asks, if the LEFT is so concerned about the environment, atmosphere and pollution, why did by engaging in unnecessary aviation?
Obama & Minions So Outraged at Birth Certificate Joke by Romney, Yet Obama Making a “Birther” Joke at 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner Is Perfectly OK
BARACK OBAMA … THE BIRTH OF THE LYING KING …
Team Obama, the MSM and the Left claimed to be so outraged by the comments that Mitt Romney made the following comment at a campaign stop in Michigan, “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate.” That automatically made the Left and the MSM refer to Romney as a ‘birther”. Really, you mean it wasn’t a joke? Suddenly the thin skinned Team Obama folks became morally outraged that how dare Romney make such a comment, joke or no joke.
The disingenuous LEFT even went so far as to call Romney a “birther” even though the Romney had already made it public record that he believed Obama was born in Hawaii. But that did not stop the LEFT and Team Obama from using the joke as a way to try and make it a distraction to the campaign. Anything and everything at all cost to divert from the 8.3% unemployment, record debt and millions of out of work Americans.
DNC Chair, Debbie “Downer” Wasserman Schultz stated that Romney ‘birther’ quip no joke. Really Debbie, you might want to take back those words before you have to eat them. Debbie Wasserman Schultz went on to say that making a joke about a presidents birth certificate, “its beneath some one who is running for President of the United States”. Get a life Debbie … look what Obama said about his own birth certificate in 2011.
Just one question to Team Obama and the unhinged LEFT, how come it is perfectly ok for Barack Obama to make fun of where he was born? He did just that at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner where “The Obamamessiah” played a clip from his birth video, see below.
Obama Releases Birth Video at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner
Hmm, does this make Obama a “birther” as well. How dare he joke about his birth certificate. Obama must be a birther because no one is allowed to reference or joke about the Obamamessiah’s birth certificate. Moonbats, do you see how foolish you look actually trying to make this an issue. Hmm?
Mitt Romney Says to Home State Crowd, “No One Has Asked To See My Birth Certificate” … Looks Like Thin Skinned Obama Can’t Take a Joke
For those who thought that Mitt Romney did not have a sense of humor, think again. During a campaign stop in his home state of Michigan. Romney made a joke in describing where he was from sayings, “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate.” Nice.
“I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. Ann was born at Henry Ford hospital, I was born at Harper hospital. No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”
But of course the thin skinned Obama campaign and the all-too complicit corrupt liberal mains stream media complex was quick to respond with faux outrage and condemnation. The vile Obama campaign referred to it as “gutter politics” and the MSM was quick to call Romney a “birther”. Really? Where was the outrage when Team Obama and his Super PACS called Romney a murderer, a tax cheat and a felon? Hmm? Of course the media was no where to be found either when Vice-President Biden fanned the flames of racism and made an inference to putting blacks back into slavery with his “chains” coments. But of course that is not gutter politics.
“This is the kind of gutterball politics that will and should turn the American people off,” Psaki told MSNBC. “This is a pattern. Mitt Romney has questioned repeatedly over the last several months whether the president understands America, whether he understands freedom — he’s wrapped his arms around Donald Trump, one of the originators of the birther movement, so we’ve seen a pattern here.”
You would dare compare calling some one a murderer and a felon to some one making a joke? Only liberals try and get away with this type of moral comparisons. So I guess all the late night comedians like Jay Leno and such are “birthers” as well when they poke jabs at Obama and his birth certificate? Romney stated that the comment was not a jab at Obama. But of course it was perfectly ok for Obama and his minions to joke about the incident with Romney, the dog and the car. That of course is fine.
“No, no, not a swipe,” Romney said. “I’ve said throughout the campaign and before, there’s no question about where he was born. He was born in the U.S. This was fun about us, and coming home. And humor, you know — we’ve got to have a little humor in a campaign.”
Honestly, so what if it was? Romney has already gone on the record that he believes that Obama is a US citizen. Since when can’t a candidate make a joke about another? Of course that is only when you are making fun of the thin skinned Barack Obama. Suddenly the Obama campaign is in complete outrage. Too bad they were not so concerned about the economy, unemployment and the out of control debt under Obama.
This is just yet another example of the Obama minions and their lackeys in the MSM trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill and distract from the real issues of the campaign and the major problems in the United States.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio Says “Obama’s Birth Record ‘Definitely Fraudulent’ … What About Those College Transcrips As well?
Sheriff Joe Arpaio says “Obama’s Birth Record ‘Definitely Fraudulent.”
Its the issue that wont go away and probably made worse by President Obama’s lack of transparency in balking at handing over his long form birth certificate. This from the individual who is demanding Romney’s tax returns. Of course this also from the president who also refuses to release his college transcript. We know so little about Barack Obama, mainly because the MSM was derelict in their duty of vetting this man in 2008 because of their incestuous relationship and their obvious liberal bias to get Obama elected at all cost.
Members of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s posse said in March that there was probable cause that Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April 2011 was a computer-generated forgery.
Now, Arpaio says investigators are positive it’s fraudulent.
Mike Zullo, the posse’s chief investigator, said numeric codes on certain parts of the birth certificate indicate that those parts weren’t filled out, yet those sections asking for the race of Obama’s father and his field of work or study were completed.
More from World Net Daily.
Check out the American Thinking with an interesting analysis of the birth certificate, a must read.
Of course I think there is enough to go after Barack Obama on his mishandling of the economy and his efforts to change America for the worse. Although I will say this and it does not just pertain to Obama but every individual who runs for the presidency, there best be a better vetting system than we presently have than just taking someone’s word for it. I think I had a harder time being vetted to take part in a company that had government contracts as opposed to a birth certificate with of a person born in Hawaii with a Connectict social security number. I do not want to hear about a transposed number or clerical error as I had this occur as well and had to prove what my correct SS number was thru e-Verify.
Things that Make You Go Hmmm … Barack Obama’s Bio Edited Numerous Times over 17 Years, but Kenyan Birthplace Changed Weeks after his Presidential Announcement
From Doug Ross comes more on Barack Obama and things that make you go hmm … Why am I not surprised that it took the Bloggers to uncover the lie?
Why would the bio of Barack Obama provided to his literary agent be changed numerous times over the years to update events and accomplishments of Obama, yet his birth place of Kenya was not changed until just after he announced his run for the Presidency in 2007? Seriously, one does not have to be a “birther” to ask such a question. This story of why Obama’s bio would read “born in Kenya” was initially brought to the public’s attention at Breitbart.com in their own going effort to do what the MSM refuses to do … Vetting the President. As stated at the PJ Tatler, when the bizarre and embarassing fact was uncovered earlier this week, agent Miriam Goderich backpedaled and stated that the Kenyan birth claim was simply a “fact-checking error.” OK, so then why did it go through a myriad of edits and updates with no change until right before Obama’s Presidential announcement?
The biography provided by Barack Obama to his literary agent specified his birthplace as “Kenya”. And, over the course of 17 years, despite multiple revisions by Obama, the Kenyan birthplace remained a fundamental part of the bio on the agent’s website.
I’ve used the Wayback Archive to explore the exact transformations of Obama’s biography on his agent’s site (click on any of the thumbnails to zoom to a readable size).
On June 27, 1998, the website read: “BARACK OBAMA was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book is DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE.”
The Bio was updated circa December 2004; however, it still stated the following; “He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago”.
Obama 2012 Theme Song … ‘Would I Lie to You’
Then as Doug Ross notes a remarkable edit was made to the Obama bio between April 3rd and April 21st 2007, where someone must have noticed the discrepancy in birthplace that would presumably disqualify the Senator from office.
On April 21, 2007, the website read: “BARACK OBAMA is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Hawaii to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, has been a long time New York Times bestseller.”
This is really an interesting read, go to Doug Powers and read the full post and the connect the dots investigation.
The question at hand is why lie? The Other McCain has an interesting theory that being born in Hawaii was not edgy enough to give him racial street cred. Let me just say that I am not a “birther” and actually do believe that Obama was born in Hawaii, but I also am a little taken aback by his continual lack of transparency and the fact that it appears his past is a made up fiction. We does the most transparent President ever not hand over his college transcripts and application. I am betting that it say origin of birth, Kenya.
This is all very important and not because Obama was born in Kenya but more to the point that Obama will lie and say anything for his advantage. This is hardly “Hope & Change” … it is the mark of an opportunist.
More to the point, who in the hell vets Presidential candidates? What is the process, do we just ask them whether they were born in the USA and if they say yes, that is goo enough? How could those vetting not have found something so simple? Of course we will learn long after Obama is out of office that those in the MSM knew about this all along and hushed it up.
Judge Michael Malihi Orders Barack Obama Eligible to be on Georgia Presidential Ballot … Good News for Obama, Even Better for Marco Rubio
Barack Obama wins the battle, but Democrats may have lost the war …
President Barack Obama has won the court battle in Georgia that questioned his right to be on the 2012 Presidential ballot due to his citizenship. Judge Michael Malihi dismissed the challenges that contended Obama has a fake Hawaiian birth certificate, a fraudulent Social Security number and invalid US identification papers. The Judge also dismissed the the claim that Obama was ineligible to be a candidate because his father was not a United States citizen at the time of Obama’s birth.
President Barack Obama’s name will remain on the Georgia primary ballot after a state law judge flatly rejected legal challenges that contend he can not be a candidate.
In a 10-page order, Judge Michael Malihi dismissed one challenge that contended Obama has a computer-generated Hawaiian birth certificate, a fraudulent Social Security number and invalid U.S. identification papers. He also turned back another that claimed the president is ineligible to be a candidate because his father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of Obama’s birth.
The findings by Malihi, a judge for the State Office of Administrative Hearings, go to Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who will make the final determination. Last month, at a hearing boycotted by Obama’s lawyer, Malihi considered complaints brought by members of the so-called “birther” movement.
President Barack Obama is a joke … Lost in Smallness, Part 102.
Barack Obama, the serious President once again shows the only thing that he is good at … being the “Clown Prince” in chief and attacking his rivals by making jokes. Isn’t it just amazing that the individual who said he wanted to put an end to the “birth certificate” story, is the only one still talking about it. How appropriate though that Obama play as his official birth video footage of the ‘Lion King’ because we all know that Barack Hussein Obama is the LYING KING!
As Obama made jokes and attacked Donald Trump, who was in the audience, Fox News and any rival, he went on to say the following. Isn’t it interesting that Obama just can’t let the birther story go.
“Donald Trump is here tonight,” said Obama. “Now, I know that he’s taken some flak lately but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald. And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter, like, ‘Did we fake the moon landing?’ ‘What really happened in Roswell?’ And ‘Where are Biggie and Tupac?’”
Not to be out done, LEFTY Seth Meyers of SNL went after Trump in what might not be considered humor. One question, I wonder how the thin skinned Barack Obama would have handled these attacks?
But Obama was downright polite compared with Meyers, who zeroed in on The Donald.
Trump “said he’s running as a Republican,” said Meyers. “Which is surprising: I just assumed he was running as a joke.”
It didn’t stop there. Trump “often appears on Fox,” said Meyers, which is funny “because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head.”
Barack Obama: The Lying King
It is simply unbelievable that Barack Obama has reduced the Presidency to a stand up comedy act. This President is so small, so thin skinned, that he refreshes the opportunity to go after his political adversaries as his like the Left Coast Rebel states, he was in high school. I agree 100% with the LCR’s analysis that Obama is so insecure and such a complete and total failure as President that he must attack other to make himself feel better.
Obama’s petulance highlights a man not comfortable in his own skin; someone that has never had to face criticism of any kind; a petulant man that tripped and stumbled into the presidency and has no clue what the hell he is doing.
Seriously, I’m no Trump fan but addressing him directly like this? So weird and Dear Leader-esque.
Seriously, how sad is it that Obama is only comfortable when he is cracking jokes at other expense? Mr. President, no one is laughing in the South where there are 300+ dead after the deadly tornadoes swept through this week, no one is laughing at the $5 – $6 a gallon cost of gas, no one is laughing at the continued loss in value of the US dollar, no one is laughing at the continued out of control government spending and national debt. No one is laughing at the rising cost of goods and inflation.
To make matters even more puzzling for “The Chosen One”, who provides Trump with more PR as a form of punishing them? As stated at InstaPundit, why would anyone make a rival bigger who obviously made serious inroads and dented the armor of Obama. The One would never have provided his long form birth certificate had it not been damaging Obama in the polls. And like a complete novice, Obama fell for the bait.
No one is laughing that Americans think that the United States is in a recession!
WHAT A JOKE THIS PRESIDENT IS … 2012 CANNOT COME FAST ENOUGH.
