President Obama Meets Hawaiian Woman, Asks Her If She Has Her Birth Certificate

President Obama Meets Hawaiian Woman, Asks Her If She Has Her Birth Certificate

Remember that whole Birther thing? Good lord, that was ridiculous. So ridiculous that President Obama has managed to successfully turn something once thought to be a serious problem into his favorite punch line. Following on the heels of coffee mugs and Lion King clips, the President got off a good one liner after speaking at an event in Oklahoma. While shaking hands with the crowd, a woman excitedly informed him that she was born in the same Hawaiian hospital as he and he quickly responded, “Do you have your birth certificate?”

It was pretty funny and charming but I’m worried the joke might be in danger of getting old. Mr. President, you should give it a rest for a little bit. How about some “Muslim Socialist” jokes for a while?

2. Oh, the birther thang is still going strong.

His response is still timely, and excellent. Laugh at the dolts.

3. I like it.

My wife works with a birther..and when he made a comment about the president's birth certificate, my wife got this horrified look on her face and said..."what will I do, my husband has the same kind of birth certificate, and it might be even worse, because his has 'Territory of Hawaii' printed at the top. Does that make him a foreign national?"

Since that day, the man hasn't said much about it...

And I was also born in Kapiolani Maternity Hospital...in 1959 when Hawaii was still a territory.
