Barack Obama continues to trivialize the greatest crisis to Constitutional sovereignty in American history
Editor, The Daily Pen
The past few years have been a real riot. Depending on your ideological orientation, your riot of interest has stemmed from a variety of causes. Arizonans rioted against immigration reform. Iranians, Egyptians and Libyans are rioting against deranged leaders. Wisconsinites are rioting against financial accountability, and the liberal, pro-Obama media is rioting against the truth.
Now, in what can only be characterized as a thinly veiled attempt to downplay the severity of a politically fatal scenario, Barack Obama is attempting to incite laughter over his lack of proven eligibility to be president.
First, while speaking at a prayer breakfast in February 2010, Obama made light of his precarious situation by saying, "Surely you can question my policies without questioning my faith. Or for that matter my citizenship."
Then, in May, 2010, Barack Obama made wise cracks about his birthplace at the White House Correspondent’s dinner. We won’t recap such ignorance.
Most recently, while speaking at a fundraising event on March 8th, 2011 in Boston, Obama tried to again make fun of the left-wing originated "birther" conspiracy questioning whether he is a natural-born citizen as required by the U.S. Constitution to be president, (That’s right, the so-called “birther” movement began with Hillary Clinton’s PUMA campaign group during the 2008 primary campaigns, not Obama's political opposition).
“I think there's nothing -- there's no weakness in us trying to reach out and seeing if we can find common ground. Now, there are going to be times where we can't. I was born in Hawaii, what can I say? I mean, I just... I can't change those facts,” said Obama with his Malcolmesque grin.
Not surprisingly, the hapless quip prompted mindless laughter from the liberally oriented gallery, but a deafening silence was heard from the ranks of our military.
Unfortunately, given the looming impact that such a crime as being an illegal president would have against our national sovereignty, not to mention the affront it would be to the blood ransom paid by our active and veteran members of our military, Obama’s recent jokes are not very funny. In fact, they are quite pathetic.
One must wonder how such an undermining of a once pristine vestige would impact the spirit of our fallen soldiers throughout history. What would such a repulsive reality do to their motivation to fight for such a diminished America, today?
Obama seems to become very hyperconscious about his lack of eligibility to be president only when questions about his ability to lead during critical moments are under scrutiny.
As the Middle East explodes into a global threat and Japan melts down, it is one bad thing for Barack Obama, as a President, to appear so disinterested and detached as he has for the past week. It is, however, a disgrace that he would be so vain about his deficiencies as a legitimate leader that he would divert attention from the critical situation at hand with snips about such a disgustingly unnecessary circumstance as being an ineligible usurper after the fact.
Perhaps, instead of making a horse’s ass of himself to the whole world by trivializing the U.S. Constitution, Barack Obama should take responsibility for his identity and his fallow legitimacy by simply providing access to the original, attested, verifiable documentation about his natal history, education, travel, voting records, residency, parentage, medical history and citizenship. Then we can all sit back and yuck it up about what a joke this whole issue has actually been.
On the other hand, when your own lies entrap you, the only option you have in your vanity is to use thin jokes to cover your fear and blame of others for having the audacity to tell the obvious truth about your deception.
