    Bachmann blocks resolution declaring Hawaii to be Obama’s birthplace.
    Today, Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-HI) introduced a resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of Hawaii’s statehood. The resolution also proclaims the state as President Obama’s birthplace, a point the Plum Line’s Greg Sargent noted may “put House GOPers who are flirting with birtherism in a jam.” This afternoon on the House floor, Abercrombie spoke of his measure and specifically noted that Obama had been born in Hawaii. “It’s also going to be the birthday in a week or so of President Obama, born in Kapiolani hospital just down the road from where I lived,” he said. Just as the presiding chair of the House, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), was about to declare the resolution passed by voice vote, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) stood and objected:

    BACHMANN: Mr. Speaker? I object to the vote on the grounds that a quorum is not present and make a point of order that a quorum is not present. [...]

    REP. ELIJAH CUMMINGS (D-MD): Further procedings on this motion will be postponed.

    Watch it:


    H. Res. 593, a resolution “recognizing and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the entry of Hawaii into the Union as the 50th State,” contains this provision: “Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii”

    Should there be votes without a quorum? That seems to be the issue here.

    Again... this simply shows that the ideological Left is projecting the SYMBOL of a resolution which tries to establish FACT from ethereal FICTION; they have absolutely NO EVIDENCE that the BOY King was born in Hawaii... YET, there is the Ideological Left coming to DEMAND that such is FACT... and doing so through a backhanded run at legislating it as such.

    It's DECEPTION... plain and simple; and such which simply adds to the litanny of evidence which conclusively ESTABLISHES the ideological left as the pure embodiment of absolute CORRUPTION; which stands at the foundation of the intellectual certainty as to why Leftist governance HAS NEVER WORKED and why it CAN NEVER WORK... Leftism, on the whole, is, quite simply: a LIE.

    Bachman is bat-shit crazy anyways. Why anyone pays attention to anything she says is beyond me entirely.
