Grasping At Straws
Some people insist on believing Barack Hussein Obama isn't 100% Made In the USA
Newsmax, who, it would seem fair to say, are really quite right wing, have been really running hard with the whole Does Barry O qualify to run for Pres? routine.
The latest development has them in a total tizzy, as apparently, despite the passing of a '30 day deadline' to do so, Obamessiah's lawyers have not yet produced the "original birth certificate" at the heart of a suit launched by former Pennsylvania Deputy Attorney General Philip J. Berg — a self-avowed supporter of Hillary Clinton,.
The suit alleges that "Barack Obama was born in Kenya and is thus “ineligible” to run for president of the United States" and demands that Obama’s lawyers produce a copy of his original birth certificate to prove that he is a natural-born U.S. citizen.
Well down in the Newsmax story it is (oh so briefly) mentioned that this sort of deadline is routinely, in Shakespeare's (unattributed) phrase, "more honoured in the breach than the observance", by lawyers, yet this whole bit of nothing was nonetheless Newsmax's "Headline Story" (cue: flourish of strumpets, er, trumpets).
Pretty pathetic, guys.
