Ace of Spades *Destroys* Birthers

Oh, wait. No he doesn’t. Instead he argues that Republicans aren’t being hurt with independent voters at all by the entire birth certificate discussion, as opposed to the vehement opposition we are getting from David Gregory and Chris Matthews.

Apparently, if Obama is letting this whole story line drag out so that he can embarrass those who want to see his long form birth certificate, that may not be working out for him. Ace shows why it is that we may be able to turn his obstinant refusal to release it to our advantage with the people whose greatest goal in politics appears to be, “Can’t We All Just Get Along?”

A snip of a great post:

ME: Hey, how about those Crazy Birthers, huh?

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: Oh, I don’t know. What about them?

ME: Oh, they have this outlandish theory that Obama was born overseas.

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: Where was he born?

ME: Hawaii.

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: That is overseas.

ME: No, but I mean in a foreign country.

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: Why do they think that?

ME: Oh, it’s crazy. They think that because he won’t release his long-form birth certificate.

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: Oh. Um… why won’t he release it?

ME: I don’t know. No one knows. In fact, the White House never actually says why he won’t release it. In fact, no reporter even ever asks the exact reason for refusing to release it. But it’s crazy that the Birthers think this, huh?

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: Wait, I’m confused, why doesn’t he just release it?

ME: That’s not the point. Aren’t the Birthers insane?

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: Yeah, probably, sure. I assume most people who have passionate political views are insane, usually. That’s why I’m not into politics. But let’s go back one step — you have no idea why he refuses to release the birth certificate?

ME: None at all! It’s a mystery. But put that out of mind — aren’t these Birthers nuts for asking about it?

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: Um, maybe. Have other presidents refused to release their birth certificates?

ME: None, ever, that we know of, at least since such bureaucratic records were kept! But you’re missing the point — aren’t the Birthers batsh!t bug**** nuts to ask what the big mystery is?

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: Um, I’m starting to wonder.

ME: Oh, that’s crazy.

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: If what you’re telling me is right, there is a dispute, and it’s within his power to resolve the dispute, but he won’t resolve it. Is that right?

ME: Yep. 100% right.

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: So why is that crazy?

ME: Because the Birthers rely on a dubious chain of coincidence and collusion to postulate a theory about the reasons for why he’s withholding it.

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: Okay, right, but still — why doesn’t he release it?

ME: No idea! He just won’t!

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: What’s the big problem?

ME: No one knows! No one even asks!

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: I don’t see what the problem is in releasing your birth certificate.

ME: Because it’s crazy to even think this way.

HYPOTHETICAL INDEPENDENT: Um…. okay. Why doesn’t he release it, again?

Can’t you just see yourself having that conversation with one of your non-political friends?

The birthers are Obama’s problem, not ours. We don’t have to defend them or condemn them. Let him deal with it.

And seriously, if you haven’t yet, click over to Ace for the whole thing. It’s worth it.

      • Amen. My problem is solely with govt policy. I’m a fence guy that would be “liberal” re those that are already here after I know we have control on how many come and at what rate, after a a fence is built.

        • I can’t disagree with you there. My son-in-law is currently illegal. He’s a hard working young man, I can come up with no complaints about his character, the citizenship process for him is a nightmare, he will have to return to Mexico for 3-5 years, that’s a long time for his family. Sure he put the cart before the horse but who hasn’t done stupid stuff when they were young?

          But I’ll be damned if I’ll support any amnesty before there is a well guarded fence. And if he has to go back, well, that was his actions that set that in motion not mine.

  1. The way this conversation would end is with the accusation that the independent who keeps asking “so why won’t he release it” will be pointed at by the one calling “Birthers” crazy…. with mouth agape like the people of invasion of the body snatchers…and as he shrieks…Your on of “THEM”…Your a Birther!

  2. The next Republican who is asked by David Gregory should just say “David look, I know you want to play gotcha, and thats fine, I know how you liberals play the game, but seriously, I take the President at his word, but like Chris Matthews asked, why doesn’t he just release the long form and silence them?”

    • I think Boehner should have said, when confronted that way, “Look, Barack Obama is the elected President of the United States. I wasn’t there when he was born and it’s not my place to speculate on why he refused to address this speculation.

      “My first job, as Speaker of the House, is to address our budget issues. We are currently adding to our debt load at the rate of over $4Billion dollars a day. That is $5 PER DAY (*edited – $5,000 PER DAY not $5 – big difference) for every man woman and child in America in ADDITIONAL debt, not counting the debt we have already piled on them.

      “That issue will destroy us as a nation. Questioning why Barack Obama has not released his long form birth certificate or condemning Americans who doubt him is a waste of my time and effort and I intend to spend my time in a much more effective manner than that.”
