The Birth-Certificate Distraction

Please see THIS (with thanks to Will). Brief excerpt below the fold.
While we were distracted by the president's birth certificate show-and-tell, his EPA releases its guidelines for expanding federal power under the Clean Water Act....


President Obama said the whole "birther" controversy was a distraction from other more important things. That's just the way he wanted it.
Read it all.

The Obama administration is certainly adept at one thing — using sleight of hand.


  1. I with the nut-filled fringe could understand this simple point.

    Good find!

  2. I like Obama.

    He creates a scandal, then gets his MSM fan-boys to paint him as the victim.

  3. Obama milked the birther issue for all it was worth and would have continued to do so had it not been for a showing in more polls questioning his legitimacy.

    Now, off topic, but thought I would let AOW and interested readers know I finished a photo wrap of the best of the Royal Wedding:


  4. Honestly, AOW, I read these things for three lines and get so anxious I close the link lately......how the hell much more can we TAKE?

    I like Kingshamus' remark; excellent. and so true. Plus, I love the name Shamus :-)

  5. He said the media was obsessed about the issue and was not reporting on the economy. The media was reporting on the economy 10X's as much as the birther issue. I agree with you, this was a concern for him. The one thing he doesn't want them to report on is the economy.

    BTW, the network reporting on the birther issue the most? MSNBC.

  6. KingS, is spot-on.

    Obama always has ulterior motives to everything that he does.

  7. AOW, I am convinced that Obama let the controversy ride so long as a smokescreen to his other nefarious activities. Let's debate the BC rather than $5 a gallon gas prices! It worked quite well for a long time.

  8. Did you hear the news, they finally got that sonofabitch osama. Hats off to those soldiers, they have all our thanks.

  9. News tonight: Osama bin Laden is dead, apparently from a head shot in an attack launched at Obama's direction.

    Good! And Obama can indeed take the credit. Indeed, he already has done so in his statement tonight.

    But let's not allow that good news to become another of Obama's distractions.

  10. SEALs did it early morning May 1 after a week of rehearsals. One son is also dead while two wives and several other children were arrested by Pakistani forces.

  11. God bless the troops and intelligence people that pulled this off. I've heard more than a few people say that "the head of the snake has been cut off". I don't want to minimize this important event, but I believe that Bin Laden was just one head of the Hydra. Many more heads have to be cut off before the monster is dead.

  12. Who want to see the birth certificate?
    Show me the "death certificate" !
    That's the story now...
