827 Days UPDATED 4x & BUMPED 2x

[original post 4.27 at 11:40am]

Obama released his birth certificate today, 827 days since he took the oath and closer to 1000 days since Hillary Clinton requested proof of citizenship.

This was good practice for us. Someday soon we'll have an 827-day wait for an MRI screening or an appointment with a cancer specialist.

This shows Obama's dedication to the military. If you'll recall, he took a mere 72 days to return Gen. McCrystal's phone call in 2009. Our Dear Leader's priorities are proper and he should be commended.

And don't get us started in praising Obama for his interest in our nation's oil supply. It took a scant 50 days for him to respond to the BP oil spill in the gulf. This leadership is why we're paying so little at the pump today!

An Ushanka Tip goes out to Rush Limbaugh, who warned in 2009 that this birther issue could be a trap. We followed his lead and only mentioned it once in passing. Rush Limbaugh knows these liberals progressives communists like he knows every square inch of his naked glor..... never mind.

Another Ushanka Tip to Donald Trump. He did what no other person could do, and he did it with style. Here he is taking credit in only a way the Donald could do:

Glenn Beck warns us to watch what the other hand is doing. 10m Video at The Blaze.

There is no way this is being released today for no reason. There is no way.

Here is paragraph one at the DailyKos today:

With the release of President Obama's long form birth certificate earlier today, naturally the lunatic, racist fringe—also known as a huge chunk of the Republican Party—are hanging their heads in shame for the false claims they've been making.

Refreshing. It is so nice to not hear them complaining for a change. Change? It's Change! Change you can believe in.... after waiting 827 days.

UPDATE 1:20pm

Headline at The Daily Caller. Don't you just love the new media??

UPDATE & BUMP 5:15pm: 827 Days, AND COUNTING!

According to the awesome Ann Barnhardt, this story isn't over yet.

Karl Denninger at knows his Adobe Illustrator and has discovered some interesting facts about the PDF file shared by the White House. The image has been altered!

Mother's "occupation" - the "Non" on "None" has been altered. What was there before it was tampered with?
The "Accepted date" (bottom right) has been altered. What was there before it was tampered with?
As has the other "Accepted" date. What was there before it was tampered with?
There's another problem with those dates too - they're clearly altered
By the way, they were dumb enough to leave the cuts in the clipboard too.
Now this does not prove that the alterations were actual changes in content. They might not be.

But..... what other reason is there to alter an alleged high-resolution photograph?

Click over to see the screenshots and his other comments.

Just five alterations. Time to contribute to our Obama Cuss Jar....

Hope & Change: "I HOPE nobody finds out I'm a lying commie bastard," and "Let's just CHANGE this thing here, that thing there in my official birth certificate."

UPDATE 5:35pm

Debbie Schlussel has another image expert's opinion, and her $0.02:

I still say, the real solid evidence of fakery is his phony Selective Service Registration document on file with the feds. That’s evidence that the Prez either was in on or knew about a forgery of federal documents in 2008 and lied about it in various television interviews.

Her post on the Selective Service Registration.

That Obama Cuss Jar is filling up fast!

UPDATE 10:40pm:

BigFurHat at IOTW has a full writeup with screen shots.

I can emphatically tell you that this document is not merely a scan of a document that has been uploaded to the internet. This is a document that has been either put together or taken apart prior to the upload, and even Charles Johnson would have to admit that.

After downloading the document that made available to the public I opened the file in illustrator and the file is indeed in layers, which cannot happen unless the document was edited.

Furthermore, what is layered and the method of the layering is peculiar.
I was never an ardent “birther” before, but I think I am now. This must be explained (frankly, I don’t think it can be) and I would expect that progressives with an ounce of integrity would want the same.


And so it starts. Seen on the Yahoo home page - link:

So what's fueling the dogged questioning of Obama's origins? Many critics of the birther movement say its core tenets--and its stubborn resistance to evidence disproving those beliefs--can be traced to racial hostilities. The fundamental birtherist conviction, these critics say, is that an African-American can't have legitimately won the presidency--and that his elevation to power therefore has to be the result of an elaborate subterfuge.

"There is a real deep-seated and vicious racism at work here in terms of trying to de-legitimate the president," Peniel Joseph, a professor of history at Tufts University, told The Ticket.

Actually, professor Joseph, we are just sitting back and watching him 'de-legitimate' himself. It would be fun, but the stakes are too damn high to laugh. Imagine losing tenure. That is sort of how we feel about losing our country.
