(Video)Obama Says No Convincing Tea Party Birthers ‘Who Question My Legitimacy’

March 30, 2010

(ChattahBox)—-President Obama just wrapped up an amazing two-weeks of political achievement, by sitting down for an interview with Matt Lauer of NBC’s The Today Show. When Lauer asked Obama about his assessment of the tea party movement that has been portraying the president, as a Socialist, Marxist, Nazi and worse, he said he wouldn’t paint teapartiers in “broad brush” as a fringe group, noting that many in the movement held mainstream concerns. But on the other hand, Obama acknowledged he was unlikely to persuade extremist birthers, who question his “legitimacy,” of his good intentions.

Matt Lauer asked Obama what he made of the tea party movement: “Some say it’s a legitimate movement, others say it’s a fringe group where do you fall?” Obama pointed out that the tea party movement came into existence during his presidential campaign and described it as a “a loose amalgam of forces.”

Obama told Lauer that he hoped his deficit reducing policies would temper some of the anger about the growing deficit, and hold sway with teapartiers with legitimate concerns. But the president also noted, that he was unlikely to convince extreme ideologues who question whether he is a natural born citizen:

“There’s folks who just weren’t sure whether I was born in the United States, whether I’m a Socialist, so there’s that segment of it which I think is just dug in ideology. And that strain of it has existed in American politics for a long time.”

“Then I think there’s a broader circle around that core group of people who are legitimately concerned about the deficit, who are legitimately concerned that the federal government may be taking on too much. And so I wouldn’t paint in broad brush and say that everybody who is involved, or has gone to a tea party rally, or meeting, are somehow on the fringe. Some of them I think, had some mainstream legitimate concerns.” [...]

“But there is still going to be a group at their core that question my legitimacy, or question the Democratic party generally, or question people who they consider to be against them in some way. And that group we’re probably not going to convince.”

    Laughable and so very pathetic at the same time. If ever there were an individual (beside Hitler, Stalin, Tse Tsung, and such ilk) who could be legitimately described as “just dug in ideology” it would be the BO stench of liberalism’s stinking armpits and orifices. Who does he really think he’s fooling? A black who “graduated” from high school solely because of “social promotions” and can barely read his/her diploma? Perhaps, or a dim-witted liberal Demorat, commie progressive or spineless so-called moderate who stands for nothing worthwhile but easily falls for anything which is worthless? Beyond those, he is fooling no one. Where is his actual vault birth certificate? Why is his aunt openly residing here as an illegal alien who has twice been ordered by Federal Courts to leave the country? How did he sit under the rants and raves of Jeremiah Wright’s socialistic and communistic “black liberation theology” for twenty years and not know how racist he is and how much he despises our American Constitutional Republic? How is it he sleeps with and has spawned with MO who repeatedly used black panther dialect during her hate-America and racists rants while raising her fist in black panther salutes without knowing she is not only buttfugly but racist and a socialist like himself? Who does he think believes his bullshit about having thought Bill Ayers was just a guy in the “hood” and a rehabilitated domestic terrorist? Did he really believe Dunn was a patriot of the Republic with her admission that Mao was her favorite philosopher?

    The answer to all the above and more, including his insane agenda to eliminate ALL sports fishing in the United States is a loud HELL NO, BO, you’re not fooling any rational citizen patriot. We know what you are even though you’ve spent a cool one million dollars to hide who you really are by suppressing your “birth certificate”, “school records”, application for a foreign student loan, your authored “writings/articles and thesis” (if any even exist which is looking more and more like none do), the real reason you lost your Illinois law license, your being a Muslim and not a Christian, and your quite likely continued use of illicit drugs.

    The vast majority has figured out what you are and on the basis of doing so have made it an avowed commitment to rid ourselves of your unconstitutional “residency” within OUR White House and Oval Office. And as we continue our work to do so we’re sending your like minded ilk packing as well.

    Step up to the plate B HO (chief amongst all liberal bholes) and admit it…you are a pathological liar, a fraud, and a George Soros and Oprah the beached whale bought and paid for puppet. We’ll we’re going to cut the strings, turn off the teleprompter, and kick you Kenyan-born ARSE out of our Republic’s administrative governance!

    I love that they asked for “Public Defenders”, now they know about the undercover FBI agent. The simpleton Tea baggers keep missing the point. These are the same whiners that were crying when the McCain/Bailin ticket lost. Now they are crying again because their yelling (because they are haters not debaters) did not stop health care from passing. They think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something they are not the only ones that are armed and not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey then the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. Do not cry when regular people openly laugh at your group when they see on TV that your leaders are Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and that turn coat Glenn Beck from the LDS. They do more to discredit you on TV (powerful) than any of my comments do in the blog sphere.

    If there has ever been an individual who exemplifies “Laughable and so very pathetic at the same time” it’s my little brother Ken.

    Insane jealousy of what I have made with MY life isn’t pretty.
