Poll shows 51% in Ky. sure Obama was born in U.S.By Jack Brammer
FRANKFORT — Despite evidence that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, [WHAT EVIDENCE MIGHT THAT BE?] only a slight majority of Kentuckians think the Democratic president was born in the United States, according to a new poll.
The survey, conducted by Research 2000 and released by the liberal publication Daily Kos, showed that 51 percent of Kentuckians said they think Obama was born in this country. Twenty percent said they think he was born elsewhere, and 29 percent said they weren't sure.
"Sadly, that means 49 percent of Kentuckians are fully ill-informed," [ILL-INFORMED? BULL CRAP! WHAT IT REALLY MEANS IS THAT PEOPLE ARE EDUCATING THEMSELVES AND WONDERING OUT LOUD HOW WE HAVE SOMEONE IN THE WHITE HOUSE WHO INSISTS AT ALL COSTS THAT NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO KNOW ABOUT HIS PAST INCLUDING WHERE HE WAS HATCHED!] said Rep. Jim Glenn, an Owensboro Democrat and one of six African-Americans in the state House.
Although a liberal publication paid for the poll of 600 likely Kentucky voters, Research 2000 of Olney, Md., is an independent pollster routinely used by dozens of newspapers, including the Lexington Herald-Leader. The survey, conducted Aug. 31-Sept. 1, has a margin of error of four percentage points.
Respondents were asked: "Do you believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States of America or not?"
Beliefs about Obama's birthplace are divided along racial and political lines. [DUH! WHY WOULDN'T THEY BE... 98% OF BLACKS VOTED FOR OBAMA...MOST BECAUSE OF HIS SKIN COLOR! THEY WEREN'T INTERESTED IN LEARNING ABOUT WHO HE REALLY WAS!]
While 94 percent of black respondents said they think Obama was born in the United States, only 45 percent of white respondents were certain that he was born here.
Among Democrats, 72 percent said Obama was born in America. Nine percent answered no and 19 percent weren't sure.
Among Republicans, 30 percent said they think the president was born in the United States, 36 percent said they think he was born elsewhere and 34 percent were not sure.
Investigations by numerous media outlets, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning PolitiFact service of the St. Petersburg Times, have determined that Obama was born in Hawaii. [POLITIFACT HASN'T PROVED ANYTHING...SHOW US THE PROOF! MORE MEDIA PROPAGANDA BULL CRAP!]
"I guess some people believe what they want to believe regardless of the facts,"Glenn said. [GIVE US A BREAK! THE FACTS SHOW THAT "OBAMA" WON'T PROVIDE DEFINITIVE PROOF OF HIS BIRTH OR CITIZENSHIP, THE "PROOF" THAT HHAS BEEN PROVIDED IS FRAUDULENT..."OBAMA" IS LIKELY A CITIZEN OF INDONESIA, HIS NAME IS LIKELY "BARRY SOETORO"...HIS PAST IS REPLETE WITH PROVABLE CRIMES INCLUDING ELECTION FRAUD, SOCIAL SECURITY FRAUD, ILLEGAL DRUG USAGE, CONSORTING WITH THE ENEMY, WIRE FRAUD, PERJURY, FORGERY, CONSPIRACY, MISPRISION, AIDING AND ABETTING, VIOLATIONS OF CAMPAIGN FINANCE AND HABITUAL LYING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND GOD KNOWS WHAT ELSE...NOT TO MENTION THAT HE IS UNDENIABLY CONSTITUTIONALLY UNQUALIFIED TO BE POTUS UNDER ARTICLE TWO, I.E., THE NATURAL BORN CITIZEN CLAUSE...SO THESE ARE SOME OF THE FACTS IGNORAMUS CONGRESSMAN GLENN!!!]
State Rep. Reginald Meeks, a Louisville Democrat and an African-American in the state House, said the poll "shows at least half of Kentuckians are paying attention and realize the president was born in America. [MEEKS, YOU ARE AN IDIOT TOO AND A LIAR...SEE ABOVE AND EDUCATE YOURSELF!]
"It shows the relationship between the media and an educated electorate." [THE EDUCATED VOTED FOR MCCAIN/PALIN...THE STUPID AND IGNORANT AND THE RACISTS VOTED FOR THE FRAUD KNOWN AS "OBAMA"...THAT'S THE FACTS...AND THAT'S WHY AMERICA IS IN THE MESS IT IS IN RIGHT NOW!]
Still, there is a flourishing culture of advocates — known as birthers — who are devoted to proving that Obama was born in Kenya [ANOTHER LIE...THE "BIRTHERS" WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW WHERE THE BASTARD WAS BORN...PERIOD...IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?] and is not eligible to be president of the United States. [SEE ABOVE..."OBAMA" ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY IS INELIGIBLE TO BE POTUS...SO GET OVER IT...BECUASE OF THIS SIMPLE FACT, HE WILL EVENTUALLY HAVE TO RESIGN, BE ARRESTED OR FLEE THE COUNTRY BECAUSE OF THIS INDISPUTABLE FACT!]
The conservative Web site WorldNetDaily claims that about 300,000 people have signed a petition demanding more information on Obama's birth. [THEY ARE CLAIMING IN EXCESS OF 400,000...GO TO WND...CAN'T EVEN GET THAT SIMPLE FACT RIGHT]
Courts across the country have rejected the theory and Hawaii officials, citing Obama's "certification of live birth" and newspaper birth announcements, affirm that Obama was born in Honolulu in 1961. [NOT TRUE...STANDING HAS BEEN THE BOGUS REASON IN VIRTUALLY ALL "DECISIONS"..NOT ONE CASE HAS BEEN DECIDED ON THE MERITS...MORE DISINFORMATION AND LIES BY THE OBOTS!!!]
The White House has said the issue is irrelevant. [WHAT ELSE ARE THAY GOING TO SAY IDIOTS? ...AND THE WORLD KNOWS DIFFERENTLY]
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele agrees. [HE'S NOT DOING HIS JOB...HE SHOULD BE FIRED! SEE NEXT POST BELOW]
The RNC released this statement last month: "Chairman Steele believes that this is an unnecessary distraction and believes that the president is a U.S. citizen.[BELIEVES? OR CHOOSES TO IGNORE?...STEELE IS NO HELP TO OUR CAUSE AND CERTAINLY NO HELP TO THE COUNTRY...NOT SURE WHAT HIS AGENDA IS, BUT HE SHOULD BE FIRED...SEE LETTER BELOW IN NEXT POST. IF REPUBLICANS WON'T STAND UP FOR AMERICA...HOW CAN THEY EXPECT OUR SUPPORT? THE PLAIN AND SIMPLE TRUTH IS THAT "OBAMA" HAS NOT PROVEN - EVER - HIS PROOF OF BIRTHPLACE OR VALID CITIZENSHIP. PERIOD!]
"Chairman Steele wants to move beyond this conversation and continue discussing the real and immediate concerns that face American families like the economy and health care." [WE HAVE NEWS FOR STEELE - IT'S NOT GOING AWAY!...THAT'S A FACT!]
