Obama's Transparency - The Chicago Way

You'd think that the MSM would have signed off on the "Obama Lies" memo before now. The more you strip away from this man, the less there is you want to know.
In a pants-on-fire moment, the White House press office today denied anyone there had issued threats to remove Carla Marinucci and possibly other Hearst reporters from the press pool covering the President in the Bay Area.

Chronicle editor Ward Bushee called the press office on its fib:

Sadly, we expected the White House to respond in this manner based on our experiences yesterday. It is not a truthful response. It follows a day of off-the-record exchanges with key people in the White House communications office who told us they would remove our reporter, then threatened retaliation to Chronicle and Hearst reporters if we reported on the ban, and then recanted to say our reporter might not be removed after all.

The Chronicle's report is accurate.

If the White House has indeed decided not to ban our reporter, we would like an on-the-record notice that she will remain the San Francisco print pool reporter.

I was on some of those calls and can confirm Ward's statement.

Messy ball now firmly in White House court.

The original story about the protest at an Obama fundraiser is here. The incident that the White House is trying to cover up are threats to punish the reporter who video-recorded the fund raiser incident on her cell phone. This is the video-recording:

Everything about this man is phoney; his life, his words, his actions. That he walked into a Baptist church on Easter is only proof that he got lost. And he is lost - emotionally, spiritually, intellectually and morally.

Why wasn’t the so called long original version of the birth certificate for the past 2 and a half years? If there was nothing to hide, then why didn’t obama release it instead of spending all of that money to prevent releasing it? The real issue everyone is avoiding, is not whether Obama is an American citizen as he clearly could possibly be However, under the Constitution, in order to be President; one of the qualifications is that you have to be a "natural" born citizen. Scholars and courts have argued what constitutes a "natural born" citizen and the overwhelming consensus has been that both parents have to be American citizens (although no legal ruling has ever been made). So where are his college records? Clearly, Obama's father was an African and not an American citizen. Personally still think that there is something fishy going on here. Because the whole thing smells. I think that Joe Wilson was right when he said Obama lies Can anyone honestly say that if the birth certificate was not released until now so that this discussion would not be raised? Say what you may about Donald Trump but we really have to give credit and thanks to Donald Trump for doing what he did in 3 weeks what millions couldn’t get done in 2 years,

Obama = the Chicago Machine. This will get meaner, uglier and more dangerous before it's over.

Anon - that's what has been really percolating over the past few years - whether or not Obama is a natural born citizen.

Vice President Chester A. Arthur became our 21st President after James Garfield was assasinated in 1881. Even so, at Arthur's birth his father was a British citizen, born in Ireland and did not become naturalized until 1843. Arthur Chester stated that he was born in Vermont but there were rumors that he was actually born in Canada, where his mother's family was located. This was investigated and published in a book How a Subject of the British Empire Became President of the United States in 1884 by Arthur Hinman. The book relates how relatives of Arthur's mother stated that he was "accidently" born in Canada and that his parents were too embarassed to tell him otherwise.

In any event, Chester Arthur did not run for re-election and died in 1886. Interestingly enough, there are no official records documenting Arthur's birth in either Vermont or Canada.

Nickie - "Meaner, uglier and more dangerous" with a chance of Constitutional precipitation is the political forecast for the immediate future.

And thanks for the graphic.
