"Birther Group Launches National Ad Campaign Seeking To Disqualify Obama From Reelection"

from ThinkProgress

http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2012/08/03/635491/birther-group-launches-national-ad-campaign-seeking-to-disqualify-obama-from-reelection/

"A birther organization known as the Conservative Majority Fund is currently running a national ad campaign claiming that it can disqualify President Obama from running for reelection. While the ad is steeped in the rhetoric of the birther movement, it goes far beyond simply claiming that Obama was not born in the United States. Indeed, the ad manages to cram a truly stunning number of far right conspiracy theories into just one minute of air time:

Who is Barack Obama? We know less about this man than any other President in American history. Whatís he hiding? His autobiography is full of fictional characters. But thereís a lot more than that. If you try to look into his past, you run into a brick wall.

His college records at Columbia, sealed! His college records at Harvard, sealed! We donít know what his thesis papers were about because those are sealed too. He Selective Service record is sealed. His records as an attorney are sealed. He has a Connecticut Social Security number and we canít get answers about that either.

And no one ó I mean no one ó has seen an actual physical copy of Barack Obamaís birth certificate."

snip


this is some sick, sick shit. There are going to be some really nauseating moments leading up to the big day in November.

Is any TV station actually running their ad or is it just on YouTube.

3. I saw it on television today.

I think I had the channel on the Olympics on MSNBC, or maybe NBC. It's an irritating commercial.

2. I've seen this new ad.

It's pretty ridiculous. Makes Obama sound like a comic book villain. The birthers tactics are mimicking the Swift boaters at this point, minus the effectiveness. They really are insane vermin.

5. Yeah... let them knock themselves out...

... they're preaching to the proverbial choir. It's way too late in the day to try to define (or redefine) Obama. Romney, however...

6. Money can make a bad person worse.

OK let's do a worthers commercial

Mitt did you have legal residence in Massachusettsat the time you ran for Governor?

Mitt Did you really go 10 years without paying. taxes

Mitt why do you stock pile money in foreign banks, American banks not good enough for you?

Mitt if you really left Bain in 1999, why is your name used on forms filed to the SEC in 2002 listing you as the CEO.

Mitt why do the middle class have to pay more, so you can pay less in taxes.

7. I had this discussion with a Doctor I work with...

When this Creighton educated doctor mentioned that Obama might have been born in Kenya, I look at him incredulously then mentioned this: There is no record that Barack Obama's mother was ever in Kenya. It must have been a miraculous birth! So Barack Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, left Hawaii to give birth in Kenya? His father was studying at the University of Hawaii while she was pregnant, and was deeply entrenched in studies. Where is the evidence that either of Obama's parents left Hawaii and went to Kenya so Barack would be born there?? Maybe infant Barack was teleported to Kenya by aliens. Not sure how they can justify his birth announcements being found in two Hawaiian papers, while he was in Kenya.

Hopefully, I got through to him. Most pubs do not pay attention to the real information that is out there, then they believe this kind of crap.

10. How is it that conservatives think that 3 or 4 construes a majority?

Most of their gatherings make family reunions look like metropolises, yet some how they think they outnumber everyone else. Is lack of comparative numbers skills genetically linked to conservatism?

14. ... "I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen

the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago...."
Hawaii: Obama birth certificate is real
Updated 7/28/2009 7:41 PM
http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2009-07-27-obama-hawaii_N.htm



Hawai'i's Health Department confirmed yesterday that it has President Obama's original Aug. 4, 1961, birth certificate in storage, but the announcement is unlikely to satisfy conspiracy theorists who insist Obama was born in Kenya. "We don't destroy vital records," Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo said. "That's our whole job, to maintain and retain vital records." The Health Department's director reiterated yesterday that she has seen Obama's birth records ...
