I'm sure you've heard by now....President Obama released his long form birth certificate on Wednesday. He brought his paddle with him to the microphone as he announced the birth certificate release.....and he put some serious and deserving welts on the asses of the mainstream, corporate media.
Obama began his 5 minute announcement by decking the Village Constable, NBC's "news" director, Chuck Todd....
"Now, let me just comment first of all on the fact that I can't get the networks to break in on all kinds of other discussions. (nervous laughter by press corp) I was just back there listening to Chuck (Todd), he was saying, 'It's amazing that he's not going to be talking about national security.' I would not have the networks breakin' in if I was talking about that Chuck....and you know it."
Todd is a smug, self-righteous, pearl clutching Village Constable who acts like he wouldn't say sh*t if he had a mouthful, but who will bloviate endlessly about every meaningless Obama nuance his tiny Village-conditioned brain can conjure up. Good on Obama for backhanding this tedious, boring critic of Obama's presidency and making it clear that Todd is not really as Serious of a person as he thinks he is.
Obama gave as his reason for releasing his birth certificate now.... the fact that the media almost completely ignored the serious budget issues he presented in an afternoon speech two Wednesdays ago.
"Normally, I wouldn't comment on this.....but two weeks ago when the Republican House had put forward a budget that will have huge consequences potentially to the country...and when I gave a speech about my budget and how I felt we needed to invest in education, infrastructure, and making sure we had a strong safety net for our seniors even as we were closing the deficit....during that entire week the dominant news story wasn't about these huge monumental choices that we're going to have to make as a nation....it was about my birth certificate."
Then President Obama swung the hickory paddle....
"And that was true on most of the news outlets that are represented here."
Ouch. That one hurt. And I fully expect these media twits to respond to that spanking by circulating every bullsh*t Birther conspiracy point uttered henceforth by the craziest conservative, Democratic president hating clowns I've seen since the Clinton presidency.
Of course, as I have said in the past....releasing his long form birth certificate will never end the crazy. Already we have the slimy Newton saying....
"All I would say is, why did it take so long?" Gingrich said. "The whole thing is strange."
You know what's strange? Newt Gingrich.
Republican National Committe Chairman, Reince Priebus spouts more and even crazier conspiracy nonsense.....
"Unfortunately his campaign politics and talk about birth certificates is distracting him from our number one priority – our economy."
You see....in Mr. Preibus' "thinking", it is Obama who has conspired to make this an issue....despite the fact that he made the legal copy of his live birth publicly available online for the last two years and has never said anything about the craziness going on in Birther hinterlands.
And then there's The Donald. Hey, when you are a slimeball.....and proud of it....what else can you do but use the opportunity to polish your megalomania reputation?
"I am really honored to play such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue," he said. "Today I'm very proud of myself, because I've accomplished something that no one else has been able to accomplish," said Trump on the release of the president's birth certificate, according to NBC News. "I want to look at it, but I hope it's true. ... But he should have done it a long time ago."
What a truly disgusting human being. Trump went on in true authoritarian style to call for Obama's college transcripts, etc., you know, just to make sure there wasn't any funny business when Obama was handed the Harvard Law Review presidency in some affirmative action to help, you know, "the blacks."
No matter what the Republican slimeball du jour had to say about this....Obama delivered a well deserved bitch slapping to the corporate owned cesspool we often call the media. They are the ones responsible for this Birther nuttiness. No matter what these media clowns say...."professional" news producers, news editors, and department honchos DECIDE what they will cover each and every day. Those "professionals"....not the fruitcake crazies....put this Birther stupidity in front of the viewing and reading public day after freaking day.
And Obama, rightfully, spanked their worthless and unserious asses by correctly calling them "carnival barkers" running circus "sideshows."
