Ostriches & Giraffes

I always refer to those average Americans who defend Hussein’s eligibility as ostriches. Hussein’s surrogates are not ostriches; they are giraffes; their heads are so high up they can see exactly what has to be done.

Go to the WND home page today and you’ll see a picture of a guy with his head buried in the sand.

Sad to say, that ostrich is an elected Republican. The article connected to the picture says this:

Quote:
Regardless of whether they have “doubts” about Obama’s eligibility to be president or whether they consider the issue a “distraction,” Republicans in Congress are repeating a common refrain: “Let’s just forget about it and focus on the next election.”
“Anybody But Obama” is the accepted shibboleth Republicans cite for ignoring the eligibility question.

My problem with those folks who insist Hussein must be defeated in order to save the country is this: Unless you’re a hypocrite you should want to save the country by using every available weapon. Settling the eligibility question one way or the other is a more powerful weapon than all of the slogans the RNC can come up with, yet that weapon is being rendered harmless by silence. Bottom line: Republicans in Congress unwilling to nuke Hussein with the eligibility question can’t possibly want to save the country.

NOTE: Eligibility-doubters are confident Hussein is not eligible, while settling the question to everyone’s satisfaction is the last thing Hussein and his supporters want. That should tell Republican ostriches something.

On top of everything else, the media and Republicans are touting Marco Rubio for VP. The party line is that Rubio guarantees victory. Unfortunately, Rubio is not eligible either; so I wonder how a second possible president who is ineligible saves the country? I guess one ineligible president is destroying the country; while a second one is needed to save it.

Oh yeah. I almost forgot. The Democrats want Rubio on the Republican ticket, too. Ask yourself why Democrats want Rubio if he spells sure defeat for Hussein?

Incidentally, Rubio can take himself out of the line of succession. That would give everybody what they want. The Republican candidate would pick up some Hispanic votes, and the Democrats would get the VP they want on the Republican ticket.

Then there is this to consider: Hussein might win in November! If that happens Republican ostriches will have less success saving the country in his second term than they had the first time around. Drew Zahn’s piece says this:


Quote:
“For those who say we can settle this matter on Election Day, we must ask this question: Do you mean we should ignore the Constitution as we did in 2008? How’s that working out for everyone?” Farah asks. “And should we continue to ignore it after Election Day as well? Ignore the rule of law?”
House GOP: Don't bother me with eligibility
But 'wait until November' strategy draws voter ire

House GOP: Don’t bother me with eligibility

Looking to the government to settle the eligibility question once and for all reminded me of Ronald Reagan’s great observation: “Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

I think RR would agree that the government and the media created the problem in 2008.

Let me apologize for being redundant. The media is an instrument of government; ergo, media and government are a single entity. Obviously, the media blackout on the eligibility issue tells us the government’s intentions whether or not Hussein gets a second term; i.e., don’t talk about the problem and it will go away.

Here are two videos from Drew Zahn’s piece:

Conservative ostriches are breeding like rabbits, and in the strangest places:

Eligibility vanishes from conservative website

Eligibility vanishes from conservative website

Senator Jon Kyl started the flap when he was:
Quote:
. . . responding to a constituent that the Hawaii Department of Health “has attested” to the validity of records showing Obama was born in Hawaii.

“Moreover, the allegations pertaining to President Obama’s citizenship have been rejected on multiple occasions by the U.S. Supreme Court,” . . .
To be fair, Kyl did not say the birth announcements in two Honolulu newspapers also proved Hussein’s eligibility.

Here’s the link to the open letter that called ostrich Kyl to task:

Marco Rubio has repeatedly said he is not going to be a candidate for vice president, yet he is being touted for the job more than any other Republican. Ever since his name surfaced I’ve said “No way. The guy is not eligible.” I have not changed my mind, but there is a possibility worth considering.

Rubio on the ticket might force the SCOTUS to rule on his eligibility between the day he is placed on the ticket, and election day. Admittedly, that is not much time for the Supreme Court to hear the case and hand down a ruling. It’s also a dangerous strategy if the Court rules after he is elected.

Obviously, the High Court refused to touch Hussein’s eligibility. However, Rubio might be a way to get the Court to rule on the meaning of “natural born citizen.”

Anyway here is a great explanation of the meaning of natural born citizen:


Natural Born Citizen? - YouTube

The video came from this informative article:
