President Obama starts his day with his presidential and economic briefings and meets with senior staff in the Oval Office.

He's off to Capitol Hill at noon to meet with House Republicans to promote his economic stimulus package, which is expected to come up for a floor vote on Wednesday.

After the midday meeting, the president heads to the other side of the Hill for a luncheon with Senate Republicans at 1:25 p.m. He's expected to return to the White House by 2:45 p.m.

Robert Gibbs delivers the White House press briefing at 3:45 p.m.

Why only Press Briefing "Highlights" (the Bush White House had every question and answer in full available on line)?

The most likely scenario is that Obama was not born in Hawaii -- although there are other legal arguments as well -- I just hope that finally someone convinces Biden (and a majority of the Cabinet) that Obama is not legally qualified to even be President. I have posted many times the links to evidence that he was not born in Hawaii. There is also evidence by HIS OWN GRANDMOTHER (I can't even keep straight all of his half-brothers and sisters) that Obama was born in what is now Kenya. The Constitution, of course, requires the President to be a "natural born" citizen, regardless of electoral or popular vote.

So, given those circumstances it is REASONABLE to at least have some suspicion about his legal qualifications for the job.

Further, Hawaii Revised Statute 338-178 at the time allowed for registration of birth in Hawaii of any child that was born outside of Hawaii to parents who, for a year preceding the child’s birth, claimed Hawaii as their place of residence. In addition, between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, the law specified that if you were born outside of the United States and only one of your parents was a citizen, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least 10 years, at least 5 of which were after the age of 16.


“Short-form by declaration” fraud is therefore a plausible explanation that seems to fit the known facts. If Obama was born in Kenya, and if his mother simply traveled back to Hawaii with him shortly thereafter, and falsely declared his birth (including the newspaper announcements), then she alone broke the law, without the assistance of any co-conspirators. He may not even know the truth -- although given his own legal actions, I doubt that -- the original LONG FORM vault record in Hawaii, if it exists, has not been examined, and Obama has refused to allow it to be examined. The Government of Hawaii has stated that the “Certificate of Live Birth” (which appeared on Obama’s website) is valid, and it may be valid, if it was produced from short-form database records. However, if the short form records were fraudulently established by declaration, in the absence of a long-form witness of live birth, then a fraud has been perpetrated.

Next question?

Okay Jake D. I'll bite because I like to hear crazy conspiracy theories. Why do you say Obama is not POTUS?

Jake D, don't worry we've order the truck to take you away.

Hope he'll call out DeMint for the "whack job" he is.

Obama is not POTUS (I am not going away).
