I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Obama Takes A Stab At The Birthers

At today’s National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama had some fun at the expense of the birthers:

Mr. Obama spoke openly about how he has been sustained during his first year in office by faith and prayer. He does not frequently attend Sunday church services, but often speaks with a small circle of pastors, who provide spiritual guidance and support.

“While prayer can buck us up when we are down, keep us calm in a storm, while prayer can stiffen our spines to surmount an obstacle – and I assure you, I’m praying a lot these days – prayer can also do something else,” Mr. Obama said. “It can touch our hearts with humility. It can fill us with a sense of civility.”

The president also addressed something that he rarely speaks about: his citizenship. Questions were initially raised by conservative groups during his presidential campaign and continue to regularly flare up on talk-radio programs and Tea Party rallies.

“Surely you can question my policies without questioning my faith,” Mr. Obama said, “or for that matter my citizenship.”

The crowd applauded and laughed. The president did not.

    We won the election and now these sore losers will continue to spew your hate with lies. The way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked lies, then, and only then, you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called facts that they present. Let’s face it no one will go along with you until you guys win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. Keep plucking that chicken.

    Ironic, whenever anyone mentions the subject now “everyone” is trained to laugh. What goes around comes around Mr Joker?

  3. Floridian says:

    When he said that he (Obama) often prays, I wonder whom he prays to, not to the Judeo-christian God for sure, maybe he prays to Alah or to his father the devil
