World Net Daily was one of the first web sites I discovered on the web years ago. They are a staunch friend of Israel and a defender of conservative values, but when it comes to the “Birther” issue they are losing it:

A new wrinkle in the dispute over his birth – and whether he is eligible to be president under the U.S. Constitution’s requirement that the president be a “natural born” citizen – appeared today when Obama’s official MySpace page declared his age is 52, thus placing his birth year at 1957 instead of 1961 as has been claimed.

That would mean he would have been born during the archipelago’s time as a territory of the U.S., the islands’ status from about 1900 until statehood in 1959.

Ah HA now we’ve got him, even if he was born in Hawaii it wasn’t a state. So maybe THAT’s what they are hiding unlike say John McCain:

the NY Times pulled this same “we’re just wondering” silliness regarding John McCain and him being born in the Panama Canal Zone (shockingly, soon after the DU pulled it.) Twice. The relevant point is that anyone born in territories under the jurisdiction of US law, the Panama Canal Zone and the Hawaiian Territories being two of them, are considered Natural Born Citizens, eligible to be President of the United States. Someone born in Guam would be eligible. Someone born in Puerto Rico would be eligible. Interestingly, if someone was born on a military post in Germany, they would be a US citizen, but, not “natural born.”

Stop the ACLU shakes it head me I give a Nelson award:

Meanwhile WND continues to press the White House:

Les Kinsolving, WND’s correspondent at the White House, several times has raised the question over Obama’s eligibility at White House news briefings – initially asking why the president didn’t just release a copy of his original long-form birth certificate.

Les you are an experienced reporter and I’m not, but even I know the answer to that one. It’s because it gives the White House and the liberal media an avenue of attack when they are on the defensive everywhere else. They will string this out as long as they can because it HELPS THEM.

The symptoms seem to mimic that dreaded disease of bloggers Sullivan’s Syndrome. By as they aren’t bloggers they just get a You FOOL!

Hey Lee I have a suggestion, why don’t you ask them to comment on Ken Gladney being called a nigger and beaten? I hear the SEIU is involved. Might be a story there.

  1. […] from the it, On the right we have to be careful of the same thing with Obama; WND caught it over birtherism. It’s a case of the anti-antis. During the Cold War, we used to speak of […]
