As of now there are 19 states led Florida suing the federal government challenging the Obamacare's mandate to purchase health care. Orly Taitz, one of the Chief Moonbats in the birther movement, has decided they need a dentist, HER. Earlier this week,Taitz filed a motion in federal court asking to be added to the Florida led Attorneys General Lawsuit essentially turning it into a combo birther/ Obamacare suit and discrediting the entire effort.
According to TPM her motion included this bit of insanity:
At the end it might be a stroke of providence that this unconstitutional bill was signed into law by an ineligible President, and that these responsive pleadings were submitted for consideration only a few days before the day of the ancient holiday of Passover, which celebrates freedom from bondage and usurpation.
Yes Orly, but in the story of Passover your motion would be considered the 11th plague, "loony-tunes." Thankfully the judge threw the motion in the garbage saying in part:
Furthermore, with respect to Taitz’s motion in particular, I believe the parties to this case and the court should remain focused solely on the legal issues raised by the named plaintiffs, and not concern themselves with collateral issues (such as, for example, whether President Obama has provided sufficient proof of a valid birth certificate).
...which is legalese for "disappear moonbat."
And to be honest at this point, fifteen months into the Obama Presidency, the vast majority of conservatives hope that Dr Taitz and all of the other birther moonbats just disappear or at least keep their crazy notions to themselves.
I should admit that I am a "reformed birther," When I first started seeing the evidence during the early part of the 2008 campaign it made sense to me. That was until I saw the Barack Obama birth announcements that ran in local Hawaiian newspapers. For those to be fake, Obama's mom would have to have seen into the future, known he was going to run for president, and planted those announcements in 1961.
The only other explanation was that someone at the DNC performed one of those Star Trek maneuvers, when they fly toward the sun to pick up speed, circle the sun and come back in the past, like they did in Star Trek IV to get the Whales into the future. Since neither of those were rational explanations, right after the 2008 conventions, I published an anti-Birther post and took all of the other birth certificate stories of this site. I will continue to reject the birther movement until someone comes up with convincing evidence of time travel or, of course, the Starship Enterprise (I would even accept a Romulan Ship as long as the cloaking device still works).
Last July, Hawaii's Dept. of Health Director reiterated the statement she made just before the election.
"I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawai'i State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai'i State Department of Health verifying Barrack Hussein Obama was born in Hawai'i and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago...
Here's the point, not only has Obama been proven to be American born many times over, the only person helped by the whole business is Barack Obama.
If I were President Obama and there were no birther movement, I would invent one. It destroys the credibility of anyone who talks about it. To moderates and liberals, the birther movement is the right-wing equivalent of those drooling liberals who were calling the 2000 election stolen, years after the election was over.
Worse than the fact the birther argument has been wrong many times over, it takes attention from the real arguments,in this case proving that Obamacare is unconstitutional.
For those of you who don't believe that Obama is American born, look at it a different way, as Andrew Brietbart, told Joseph Farrah during the Tea Party Convention, it is not a winning issue. Just like the lugnuts who are still counting chads a decade after George Bush defeated Al Gore, you are not going to win. Besides if the birther thing was true, Joe Biden, the SCHMOTUS would have let is slip it out months ago.
The only one served by the Birther movement is Barack Hussein Obama, because it gives him and his cronies the opportunity to dismiss the entire lot of us. Birthers like Orly Taitz need to wake up, the time for you to have let it go passed a year and a half ago. Barack Obama may not be our kind of American, but he is an American never-the-less. Lets fight against his policies, those are the arguments that we have a chance of winning.
There is a second issue about Obama's birth. There are those who believe that he is born in the United States but unlike most democrats, do not believe that he was a "Virgin Birth," that argument about Obama's birth is perfectly legitimate.
