edge919 explains why the joke wasn't funny:
Either this was the anti-Perjury punchline or his teleprompter botched the joke. It should have been, “Some people think my presidential library should be in Kenya, but I think it should be where I was born ... in Hawaii ... in the United States.” His syscophant supporters would exploded in a cacophony of mirth and adamant applause. Instead, he comes across as petty, insecure ... and factually vague.justiceseeker93 wonders if it was a joke at all!
Not sure if that was a joke or a Freudian slip. He has made his share of gaffes in the past.4integrity knows the truth when he hears it!
Or it could have been a direct attack on the Natural Born Citizen clause of the Constitution, in effect saying that it doesn't matter where his birthplace is.
He joked about several issues and what came to my mind was....’the truth is said in jest.’Smokeyblue also thinks the jokes are secret truths:
The only time he tells the truth is when he's trying to stick it to "the birthers."atc23 makes a Nixon reference...for some reason.
Smug litle fart.atc23 thinks Obama would have been beaten up if he weren't working for the government:
Richard Milhouse Obama - the original birther
Truly the protected, hands off class of government stooge - bureaucrat is the only place Mr Dunham would have safe harbor.Thanks to Glenn Beck, butterdezillion has a new conspiracy theory all set!
Had he ever been in the real world of men, he would have had his teeth handed to him Long ago.
I notice he's still never joked about his so called social security card or his inability to pass the rigorous investigation of E-Verify.
Some day Barry's chickens will come home to roost
Wanna know what’s the sickest thing about this?ClearBlueSky hates the gloating:
Glenn Beck sent his information (which DHS is claiming includes the reality that the Saudi “person of interest” Alhamdi - who Michelle visited in the hospital - is Osama Bin Laden’s son Hamza, who has sworn to avenge his father’s death).
At least some of these “journalists” know that Obama gave aid and comfort to Bin Laden’s son after that son killed and blew the legs off of innocent Americans in Boston - including the death of an 8-year-old boy waiting for his Dad to finish the race.
And they laughed at Obama’s “funnies” about being called a Muslim socialist.
There is no way to rehabilitate people like that. They have stared the devil in the eyeballs and bowed to him and laughed at his jokes. They are as gone as a person can get.
That is gloating. That is sharing the joke with co-conspirators. He’s ultra confident that his trail is clean and he is untouchable-legally and otherwise. And, if he can eliminate that pesky Constitution that is ‘constraining’ him, we are well and truly FUBAR.Norm Lenhart knows the real enemy is non-crazy Freepers.
Plenty of anti birthers on FR applauded him no doubt.rovenstinez goes in for some empty triumphalism:
He who laughs LAST gets the best laugh, and we the American People have still to have our last laugh when the truth finally gets out.RoosterRedux takes refuge in history.
He knows it is this deceit and treason for which he will eventually be known. This is his legacy.
