Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby: Crazier than Charles Manson

Sunday, February, 22, 2009

Whatever they’re drinking these days in Alabama, Sen. Richard Shelby (R) drank obviously too much of it before attempting to answer a question from a constituent last week about President Obama.

According to the Cullman Times, Sen. Shelby said:

“Well his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven’t seen any birth certificate. You have to be born in America to be president.”

Besides being resolutely disrespectful, the question of Obama’s citizenship was resolved long ago when then-candidate Obama posted a copy of his Hawaiian birth certificate on his webpage, Fight the Smears.

For anyone (including Sen. Richard Shelby) who still doubts Barack Obama was born in the USA, you can view his birth certificate HERE.

    Shut up, shut up, shut the fuck up! I’m sick and tired of these idiot Republicans from below the Mason-Dixon line who live off the taxpayers and do nothing for the people who elected them. The DNC needs to target Shelby and defeat his ass when he’s up for reelection.

  2. The role of the government is to protect its citizens… the dems seem to have forgotten this. They think the government is a welfare system. Creating a welfare society is a recipe for disaster.

  3. Tondaleo says:

    Let’s be correct here. All the Obama people released was a computer-generated Hawaiian “Certification of Live Birth,” and the state officials simply said that the original source document existed–that being the actual birth certificate. They never verified he was actually born in Hawaii. A certified copy of the original–a document that gives detailed information–has never been released. Why not?

    The winguts will never be convinced. The right-wing SCOTUS has found no merit in the charge, but these geniuses know something John Roberts doesn’t. Well, here’s in idea, prove it. Prove that he is not a natural born citizen of the US or crawl back under the rock you came from.

  5. Fran says:

    Tondaleo: We will contact the Vital Statistics department in Oahu, Hawaii & have them Fed X you, Sen Shelby & Rush Limbaugh a certified copy of the birth certificate so you are personally satisfied with proof of the President’s Citizenship.
    Also Hawaii IS a part of the United States.

    Can we move on now?

  6. panasit (the Original) says:

    The US Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge to President Obama’s citizenship from the wingnuts so I guess this must mean the High Court is in on the conspiracy and the cover-up.

    This baseless theory that Obama was born in either Indonesia or Kenya was advanced by the radical Hillary Clinton PUMA whack-jobs and it was picked up by World Net Daily. Consider the source.

    However, the director of Hawaii’s Department of Health confirmed Oct. 31 that Obama was born in Honolulu and the Associated Press quoted Chiyome Fukino as saying that both she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama’s original birth certificate.

    But diehard Obama bashers then claimed both Chiyome Fukino and Alvin Onaka were threatened with death by unnamed members of Team Obama if they didn’t confirm the president was born on American soil.

    As with all loony conspiracy theories, you can’t win in an argument with the people(s) who embrace them because you wind up going round and round in circles. Much like trying to read an article on WND and find the sense of it.

  7. Jenna Bush Stole My ID says:

    President Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii?

    I thought he was born in a Federation hospital on Omicron 6 and delivered by Betazoid doctors?

  8. TOM339 says:

    The far rightwing kooks just won’t give up?

    There’s no question Obama was born in Hawaii which happens to be the 50th U.S. state (just don’t tell Cokie Roberts) but even if this weren’t true and Obama’s mother gave birth in Canada, or Japan, or Morocco, or Guyana — he would still be a U.S. citizen because his mother was an American citizen in good standing meaning she hadn’t renounced her U.S. citizenship.

    Just like John McCain, who was born in Panama to American parent who were stationed on a U.S. military base. Like Fran asked, can we move on now?

  9. E Z Rider says:

    Why doesn’t people like Shelby get on an airplane and go VIEW the birth certificate if they are going to make such a big deal of what the rest of the world knows to be true. Fact is Shelby is as dumb as some of the stumps he used to ride his horse up to. He has nothing to offer, so he is one of the many republicans that like to stir instead of fix.

  10. Gleneagle says:

    What Sen. Richard Shelby needs to explain is why did he divulge classified information to members of Fox News back in 2002 when Shelby say on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence?

    Would a real American and a patriot knowingly do such a thing, or does this sound more like the behavior of an enemy agent?

  11. maji says:

    They can’t view the bc because there would be no legal reason they would be allowed to do so, and besides, just think about who we’re dealing with here. Even if they could legally have access to it, they’d only spin off onto some other illogical tangent. It’s their way. No real substance, only blather.

    Note to the “Comrade:” read the Preamble to the Constitution. It does say “provide for the common defense,” i.e., protect the citizens (also open to additional interpretation), but you forgot the other five. One in particular says, “promote the general WELFARE.”

  12. emcee says:

    I guess the NY Post cartoon wasn’t enough for Shelby. Asshole.

  13. kellybelle says:

    they’re just trying to harrass this man straight out the gate like they did clinton. They better watch out or Obama will snatch the consertive out their throats.

    Because people like you need to take hammers and, with great force, produce reverberations on your crania until deep and irreparable fissures appear.

  15. MacDaddy says:

    Some folks from Chicago love to say, “Watch out. Don’t make me go south side on you,” referring to the violence on the south side of Chicago. So far, Obama’s “southside” appears to be manifested in putting some good bills into law and playing some serious hoops at the White House. Still…

  16. libhomo says:

    Shelby is a Clintonian Dixiecrat who was honest enough to leave the Democratic Party a while back. He is as racist as the Clintons.

  17. libhomo says:

    Shaw said: “Because people like you need to take hammers and, with great force, produce reverberations on your crania until deep and irreparable fissures appear.”

    I think they already have. It would explain a lot.

  18. R.J. says:

    Richard Shelby is an unpatriotic racist asshole.

  19. Conejo1982 says:

    ROFLMAO! The wingers are really lost in the wilderness. Let’s see now. According to them, Obama’s:

    1. a foreign national
    2. a drug addict
    3. a drug dealer
    4. got into Harvard via Affirmative Action
    5. gay
    6. an al Qaeada operative

    I’ve read them all and they’re all factually incorrect but the nuts on the right just keep throwing shit at him, hoping something sticks.

  20. Mauigirl says:

    These people need to get a life. Give it up. He WON. They need to get over it, he is a citizen, he is the President, and continuing to throw out these innuendoes and ridiculous accusations is absurd.

  21. JollyRoger says:

    Let’s be correct here. I am a wingtard racist and my stupid post was unrelenting bullshit which is much closer to the truth now. Thanks, JollyRoger!

    No problem, Tondaleo. But since you brought up the usual wingtard “birth certificate doesn’t prove he was born in Hawaii” bullshit, I will remind you that there is a microfilm announcement of his birth in the records of a local paper. Now we can either assume that people had decided that little Barack was going to be President no matter what clear back then, or we can decide that wingtards like you are despicable scum who are stealing air and water from deserving people, animals, plant life, and fungi. Guess which way I see it?

    It is interesting that none of the inbred knuckle-draggers have EVER entertained me, even ONCE, when I kindly point out that there is a WHOLE LOT MORE publicly available evidence of Barack Obama’s citizenship than there is of Trig Palin’s parentage.

    Tell me, WHY is that?

  22. JollyRoger says:

    Oh, and Shelby is the Klanservative draft-dodging scum that did everything but flat-out say that Cleland and Osama were in the throes of a torrid affair. What else would wwe expect, really?

  23. feminazi says:

    I think Conejo’s list is perfect. The radical, right has pretty much tried to attach any such fiction to Barack Obama to try and sully his standing with the American people. I think they do this because he enjoys a 70% approval but the GOP is intensely disliked by voters.

  25. Rachel says:

    I see I missed all the fun yesterday! These wingers are endlessly amusing to me. They just make shit up and say it’s true. Like Tondaleo. Oh well, I guess when you’re down for the count, a conspiracy is easier to understand than facts when the facts don’t break your way.

  26. llabesab says:

    Notice how the “Lefties’ use ad-hominems to refer to those who disagree with them.

    But ask yourself this easy question:

    Why can’t we see an “Official Birth Certificate” of The Anointed One? Why has he hired 3 law firms to quash every attempt to see such document?

    Another easy question: What other President’s Birth Certificate can’t we get to see? Answer: NONE. Does this surprise people like DiSpirito? But, then again, he may be imbibing too much “Spirito.”

  27. JollyRoger says:

    Tondaleo/llabesab, you STILL won’t acknowledge that your wet dream has allowed FAR LESS proof of Trig’s parentage. You STILL refuse to acknowledge the newspaper entry at the time of Obama’s birth. As for the rest of your ridiculous bullshit…. the “3 law firms” lie was debunked some time ago, unless you happen to be a member of the “Savage Nation.”

    Why can’t you inbreds do anything but repeat talking points? Why do you depend on a pedophile drug addict for “your” opinions?

  28. Sandy says:

    Oh good gracious I can’t believe the idiocy sometimes. This is why progressives need to keep vigilant, keep laying pressure on Obama from the left because he is getting so much crappy bs pressure from the right. There’s a great video on this site for the book Thinking Big that makes the same point – now is the time for us to do our part to keep Obama on track and away from the influence of nutjobs like those.

  29. ooh nice blog , im reading it almost daily..

  30. Joe in Colorado says:

    llabesab, AKA, baseball (oh how clever!),

    The “Official Birth Certificate” of The ELECTED One is posted on Obama’s website for everyone to see. Now, open up your brain a little and let in a bit of fresh air so you can follow this. Think about it. If there was really anything to the rightwing nuts charge that Obama isn’t an American, don’t you think the US Supreme court would have considered it on purely Constitutional grounds? Scalia, Roberts and Clarence despise President Obama and they would welcome a chance to remove him.
