    Holograms are absurd. Obama is obviously a robot created by the liberal-industrial complex to weaken America before ultimate surrender to the French.Report

    We know that the birth certificate says that he was born on American soil.

    We need to see the birth certificate because the name on his original birth certificate was *BARRY*. NOT BARACK.

    He’s been lying to all of us. We didn’t elect a “Barack Obama”.

    We elected a *BARRY*.Report

    In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away their rights) and that’s who they need to focus on if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

    In the same vein, to all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true, if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories. You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess he fooled them too?Report

    For pity sake. Are you serious. His Highness, thanks Bob Cheeks, existed long before holograms existed.
    Look, E.D., you’re missing the real story up to now. There are at minimum two Barack Obamas. One born in Kenya, one born in Hawaii. The stupid Americans elected the Kenyan. I was told, I can’t divulge my source, that a Barack Obama is seeking an office in, hold on to your hats, North Korea. Fucking A!Report

    I have a feeling that by the time the Gifted One is done with this country, some of those ‘commenting’ re: the ‘birthers’ will wish they had pursued the matter with a little more diligence and intensity.
    BTW, how’s that Obama thing working out for you now?Report

    “He’s been lying to all of us. We didn’t elect a “Barack Obama”.

    We elected a *BARRY*.”

    Which is enough to impeach — not that he lied about his name, but that it’s Barry. That’s almost as bad as electing a Donnie.Report

    I am disappointed that a site with the quality and intellectual integrity of the League would sign on to the standard meme that the entire conservative blogosphere is complicit in the “birther” lunacy while ignoring (or failing to detect) the many conservative blogs that have taken unequivocal positions rejecting it.Report

    That seems the main point of the Village Voice article that the post on this site cites approvingly.Report

    E.D…….you are wrong….dontcha know….
    its really all about teh Joooos.Report

    Holograms? But why would CNN do such a thing?Report

  12. Avatar Ryan says:

    He’s a Cylon. It’s just the resurrection ship that’s in Kenya.Report

    My apologies if I called you out wrongly. I assumed you had linked to the VV article because Memeorandum classified your post under that article. I should know better than trusting Memeorandum to be accurate. 🙂

    For those of us that write on conservative-leaning sites that are very critical of the “birthers”, it is enormously frustrating to see the vast majority of liberal-leaning sites talking about the “birthers” as if anyone to the right of Bill Clinton was one of them.Report

    And the government, well they always have even better, cooler technology. So imagine if CNN can do holograms what the feds can do….

    Clearly, the feds would have cardboard cutouts seeing as there isn’t a competitive market to spur innovation.

    At least judging from the fact that the last few government offices I’ve been in have televisions the size of small boulders while my local watering hole is covered in flat screens.Report
