President Obama starts his day with a call at 9:40 a.m. to astronauts participating in NASA's ongoing International Space Station and shuttle Discovery mission. He's expected to be joined by congressional leaders and students from Washington, D.C. as he commends the astronauts for their work.

At 10:15 a.m., he receives his daily presidential briefing, followed by a meeting with Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd at 11:00 a.m. Obama and Rudd are expected to address the global financial crisis, climate change, arms control, the state of Afghanistan and Pakistan, among other major policy issues.

Obama's routine economic briefing occurs at 12:45 p.m. He meets with his senior advisers at 3:00 p.m. and holds a prime-time press conference from the East Room of the White House this evening at 8:00 p.m., during which he's expected to discuss the economy.

If you google "Alferd obama birth certificate" you will find that he or she or it has been blogging 24/7 on this issue, along with others like maineskeptic, cube and others. They appear to be on the Obama payroll. Alferd or Alferd_p et al., is this a union job?

If you want him you can get him. Simple! His daddy was a Brit on the day he was born. Under British Common Law any male British subject can marry a alien (Miss Dunham was an alien to Briton) and all his children automatically become Brits at birth. That's British Common Law. Baby BO was born a Brit at Birth. Does not matter where he was born. Does not matter what Birth Certificate he has. Our Laws do not apply for his father was not under our laws he was a British Citizen. Now we know BO is a Brit, how can anybody think he is Natural Born? If he was born in Hawaii that makes him a dual citizen, Brit first American second. Either way Brit or Dual Citizen he is not Natural Born. Now that you know he is not, and can not be, a Natural Born American, What you gonna do. Looks like we are stuck with him just like all those other illegal aliens. God help us!

If someone goes to JakeD's link, they'll certainly see what aipca wants you to think about them, though it's a stretch calling that the truth. For instance, you won't learn that:

'Many political analysts have theorized that the Party, which has received very few votes in recent California elections, maintains its state ballot status because people join the Party mistakenly believing that they are registering as an "independent," also known as a "non-partisan" or "decline-to-state" voter.'

You'll notice JakeD playing that little game every time he claims to be an "Independent" instead of specifying that he is a member of aipca.

What can one say about a party that depends for its very survival on misleading people?

If anyone wants to know the truth about the American Independent Party (neither Comminists nor Nazis):

When JakeD says he is "Independent," he means that he is a member of the far-right American Independent Party, founded by George Wallace, with Alan Keyes its most recent presidential candidate.

So he's independent in about the same way that a member of the Communist Party USA or American Nazi Party is independent.

Maybe some reporter would dare ask if $2 BILLION per year is too much to run the White House?

Anyone else?

Hey, Jake, if he didn't mean to insult the President, then why didn't he include the candidate for the office of VP in his bill?

For everyone (other than Alferd and "nobedris"):

Rep. Posey (R-FL) has, in fact, introduced legislation that would require any future President to submit his original birth certificate. "Opponents of President Bush used the 2000 election results and the court decisions to question the legitimacy of President Bush to serve as President," Posey said in a statement. "Opponents of President Obama are raising the birth certificate issue as a means of questioning his eligibility to serve as president. Neither of these situations are healthy for our Republic."

Posey's spokesperson told CNN that Posey takes President Obama's word for it that he's a citizen: "This was not meant as an insult to the president. It is simply meant as a way to clarify future election laws and to dispel the issue so we can move on with doing business for the country."

Alferd:

Even pResident Bush didn't send credentialed reporters to any flaming pits. Let me guess, you were upset about actual terrorists going to GTMO though?

Posted by: JakeD | March 24, 2009 1:40 PM

JakeD: --"Will you consent to the release your original birth certificate?"--

Obama: "No, and there is nothing you can do about it, you tin foil loser! BWAH HA HA HA"

(Obama pushes a button and a trap door opens beneath JakeD dropping him into a flaming pit)

lclifton:

Assuming you are a Republican, know that plenty of us Independents (even some Democrats I know) are opposed to Obama too. It has been said that there are none so blind as those who refuse to see.

Posted by: JakeD | March 24, 2009 12:43 PM

And JakeD steps up to offer yet another example. Excellent!

I particularly like the idea that he should "return $2.5 million in book royalties to the U.S. taxpayers." Good one! Totally new, too, I haven't heard that one yet.

Keep 'em rollin', lclifton, JakeD. There are still some reasonable people out there that have a bit of respect left for the conservative movement, so your job is not yet done.

Posted by: nodebris | March 24, 2009 12:36 PM

Q: Did you promise to do anything in return for over $100,000 in AIG contributions?

Q: Will you return those contributions to the U.S. taxpayers?

Q: If the economy does not improve by 2012, will you still seek the Democratic nomination for President?

Q: Will you return $2.5 million in book royalties to the U.S. taxpayers?

Q: What did you and Biden say to Gorbachev last Friday?

Q: Will you consent to the release your original birth certificate?

Posted by: JakeD | March 24, 2009 12:25 PM

Boy, there used to be a time when conservatives presented reasoned arguments that required some thought to counter.

Then people like lclifton took over the party and now all you have to do to discredit them is set back and let them talk.

jeremiah Wright's alter boy will get a couple of gains out of Wall Street as he pays off mega banks bad debts with trillions of freshly minted taxpayer dollars and China-borrowed bond moneis. Employment will jump a couple points from time to time too.
Here's the proble. Obama, who like Clinton is convinced that he ia a Hollywood celeberity, is mortgaging your children's future for a temporay fix to keep himself, Barney Frank, Pelosi, Reid and the rest in power today.
Soon, printing and spewing taxpayers' future at the people who ripped us off to begin with will make the people mad. All that will be left is depression and debt. The Soviet's ran their people into the ground under Communism this very way. Barney Frank is not an economist, Obama is just a south Chicago community organizer, the "Man from A. C.O.R.N." You liberals are stuck on stupid!
