For example, Obama said he did not watch any of Fox News Channel host Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally Saturday on the National Mall.
“It’s not surprising that somebody like a Mr. Beck is able to stir up a certain portion of the country. That’s been true throughout our history,” he said. But “I’m making decisions that are not necessarily good for the nightly news and not good for the next election, but for the next generations.”
Translation: I can’t be bothered with you little people. Why don’t you just go and eat some cake.
Obama also stated in the same interview that he “can’t spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.” This is true. Perhaps, though, he could give the American people the gift of actually seeing his original birth certificate, you know, the one issued in 1961. Just because a government official has seen it, and the basic information on it has been published in certified form, clearly isn’t enough to allay people’s concerns. And the fact that Obama resolutely refuses to produce the original document, keeping it deeply hidden in Hawaii’s government vaults, is not the best way to address those concerns.
As it is, I have no doubt that he was born in Hawaii. I suspect only that his parentage isn’t quite as it was presented for public consumption, whether the truth is that he is illegitimate or that Obama Sr. was not, in fact, his actual father, but someone else was. Regardless of what those truths are, my bet is that the American people can handle them a lot better than the not knowing.
But if you’re the King, clearly it’s your right to insult people, ignore them, deride them, and hide from them. Gee, but it’s great to be King.
May I suggest this as today’s “Obama video”:
