"The White House was forced to respond Wednesday to a conspiracy theory too silly for even the birthers..."

"Did Barack Obama appear in the video for Tag Team's 1993 one-hit wonder 'Whoomp! (There it is)'?"

Were they really "forced" to respond here? I mean, I saw the posts on this, and they were mostly laughing about how silly it was and how funny it would be if it were true. Even if either it was him, or a lot of Americans thought that it was, I don't think this would have been a major problem.

I also think it's safe to say the President did not appear in an Israeli TV commercial ...

Maybe they were "forced" to respond because they think all African Americans look alike to us gun & bible clingers.

Nice if he would have felt compelled to respond to Obamatrina or the NorKs sinking ships in a somewhat proportionate manner.

Evidence is mounting daily of this administrations utter incompetence on every level.

Surreal.

No no no, he was in ""Whoot, There It Is".

That joke is hilarious if you grew up on Southern club music.

I thought it was Whoomp! Bad Ass!!

Speaking of "a conspiracy too silly even for the birthers..."

"FTW," as they say. ;)

Can even Obama widen and narrow his nose at will?

Paul Zrimsek said...

I'll let Mick be the judge of whether this theory is too silly even for the birthers.

"Can even Obama widen and narrow his nose at will?"

Ask Harry Reid. What with that social chameleon negro dialect Obama speaks at will and all.

I am sure they love to respond to this, to distract attention from the increasingly hard to conceal sleaziness and incompetence on display by the regime.

Sympathy for noble Barak under one more attack for something made up by his enemies is the News Meme for this week. So whatever you may think about his destroying the Capitalistic system, abandoning Israel, getting everything ready to sell out to World Governance thru the World Bank issued currency and the World raping of the USA by a Global Warming Hoax, poor Barak is the victim and needs our support.

No, that's not him.

But this is Jean-Claude Van Damme in "Breakin'."

Interesting they answered this, but we still haven't seen birth cert, health records, or academic transcripts.

Probably not a will, but a good plastic surgeon can work wonders.

Note: I don't think it is Obama in that photo. However, even if it was...so what?

I'm with lyssa. This white house has no concept of when they should be above it all. They respond to ever ridiculous thing. Guys? People are just having fun with a video. It didn't require a response. Geez.

Does no one have a sense of humor anymore?

Oh, I forgot.

Here's the latest on the guy who played Obama in the movie "Palin: Erection 2008":

The question was spurred by the fact that this White House parties as often (if not more) as a Whoomp (There it is) Jones Beach Summer Calendar.

Youngblood said...

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeah...
Tag Team music in full effect!

That's me in DC
The Brain Supreme
And my man Joe Biden!

We're kickin' the flow
(Biden: We're kicking the flow)

And it goes a lil somethin' like this:

Tag team back again
Check it
Wreck it
Let's begin
Dem Party people let me hear some noise
Barack's in the white house
Jump jump rejoice!
There's a party over here
An oil spill over there
A stimulus everywhere
Even got some health care!
These three words mean we're gettin' busy:

Whoomp! There it is!

Henry said...

That quote offers a good example of why the passive voice never goes out of style.

Who does it let off the hook?

The media.

The lede should have been "The White House responded Wednesday to idiots like us."

Superdad said...

But the real question is, is the President really the Brown Hornet?

Doesn't matter WHERE he was born. The admitted fact of his ineligibility is already known. Obama Sr. was not a citizen when Obama 2 was born (or ever). As such he was born a dual citizen of Britain and is not an eligible Natural Born Citizen.

Fascinating. My parents immigrated to this country (legally, I assure you) and got married here. I was born a couple of years later. Several years after that, my parents became naturalized Americans.

Since they were not U.S. citizens at the time of my birth, are you suggesting that I myself am not a "Natural Born Citizen" of the USA?

Answer carefully. Some Americans get really mad when you imply that they're not as American as you.

Yes. You are a citizen with the same rigts as a Natural Born Citizen, but are not eligible to be POTUS as a Natural Born Citizen, as required by A2S1C4,5. It is not a matter of "rights", but of eligibility. It is a security requirement designed to ensure the highest possibility of allegiance and attachment to country (not saying that you are not allegiant, just not eligible). National security trumps self interest. Yes, I have run into a lot of people with the same initial reaction as you, with the same story. You were born with dual allegiance. You became a citizen by statute when your parents naturalized in your minority. Natural Born Citizen is an ancient concept of citizenship by Natural Law codified in Vattel's "Law of Nations". Natural Born Citizens need no statute (i.e the 14th Amendemnt or any Immigration Acts of Congress) to become a citizen.

Oh, that's okay. I never wanted the damned job anyway. (If nominated I will not run; if elected, I will not serve.)

You were born with dual allegiance. You became a citizen by statute when your parents naturalized in your minority.

Funny, nobody ever told me that.

Natural Born Citizens need no statute (i.e the 14th Amendemnt or any Immigration Acts of Congress) to become a citizen.

Bottom line: You're saying I'm not a Natural Born U.S. Citizen.

To crib a line from those old World War II movies: Your attitude has been noted.

Word verification: nommunp.

ABP said...

I'm pretty persuaded by the matching elf-points on his right ear. And don't take this as a disparagement of Obama. If true, it would be on the order of Bush showing up in an old episode of HeeHaw (or maybe Reagan showing up in an old movie with a chimpanzee). Just sayin'.

Methadras said...

It sure does look like Captain KickAss.

Paul Zrimsek said...

So the problem with this new consiracy theory isn't that it's too silly even for the Birthers-- it's that they're too obsessed with the conspiracy theory they've already got to spare any attention for a new one, even when it's about Obama.

No conspiracy theory. Obama has admitted the reason that he doesn't qualify, no matter where he was born. His father was not a US Citizen, thus Obama 2 was born a dual citizen, and is not a Natural Born Citizen.
