David Gregory Questions John Boehner…About Obama Being A Muslim?

Egyptian turmoil. An epic battle over spending, deficits and debt brewing in Congress. Legal challenges to Obamacare slowly inching their way to Supreme Court where the law will be, more than likely, struck down as unconstitutional.

All of these important, topical issues to discuss and what does NBC’s David Gregory choose to grill Speaker John Boehner over on Meet The Press?

Obama being a Muslim.

Gregory suggests that it’s somehow Boehner’s job to address conspiracy theories about Obama’s birth certificate and/or religion. Boehner responds, appropriately, that it’s not his job to tell the American people what to think.

But let’s turn this question around. If the point is to disabuse people of their false notions about President Obama then why not ask the President why he hasn’t released his full birth certificate? I believe the President is a citizen, and that all this focus on his birth certificate is silly, but if you’re going to ask the question why not go to the source?

See, the libs don’t want to talk about Obamacare or spending or the national debt. The libs need to distract. Thus, we get nonsense like this.

    I think Boehner could have shut him up fairly quickly if he shot back that the same reason the President isn’t publicly showing the long form of his birth certificate.

    Does kind of lay credence to the bad rumor that the long form says he is Caucasian. humor intended

    The best speculation I’ve seen so far is that BO’s school records. medical records, birth certificate, etc. show the name “Soetoro,” and that his name has never been officially changed. He used “Soetoro” ’cause it was a good name for getting foreign student status & there may have been some misrepresentation involved. A possibility.
    If one considers a conspiracy involving constitutional ineligibility for the presidency, common sense makes it seem likely that no one would dare pull off such a deceit without having considerable confidence that it would work. Now, of course, we know that it could work due to the failure of the media to investigate, or even care.
    The failure to have an official name change may have implications in other ways that are quite bad, the least of which would be the fraud.
    If the above-mentioned speculation is correct, then somewhere there exists a detailed spin strategy in case the coverup should fail.
    The Birther theories may only be the perfect distraction from the simpler and more probable explanation—or not …

    What is his “full birth certificate”, in your mind Rob? Are you saying he released half of his real birth certificate? Or, are you attempting to say you want to see the original, as if the current birth certificate is not valid?

    What exactly are you trying to say?

  • Cut the Spending!

    David Gregory loses more credibility every time he interviews. Asking stupid questions like this of Republicans, and then softballing the Democrats on issues.

      I don’t think he had any before this interview. I failed to see how Jon Boehner is resposible for the people that think that Obumble is a muslim or born in another country?

      • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

        Because he knows the people who support him are idiots like you, who think he is a Muslim, not born in this country.

        • http://ndgoon.blogspot.com Goon

          Hey Dumb ass not once did I say that Obumble wasn’t born in this country… That being said my favorite douche bag, I think Obumble is a horrible president.

        • Ecal

          Whatever he is or where he came from, he is a horrible President.

          The only thing he has produced in two years is debt on top of more debt, far more than any presidential term before his. And that was just his first two years.

    rube, of course you do know that Gregory opened the show with Egypt.
    About 15 minutes in fact, was dedicated to Egypt.

    Of course, rube, you do know his first question to the Weeper was about Egypt.
    They talked for about 5 minutes on Egypt.
    He then ask about the budget, again about 5 minutes.
    Next, Gregory asked about housing, the upcoming election and many other issues.

    3 minutes or so out of 30 minutes to ask the gop leader about goofball gop base beliefs.
    Not bad.

    The Weeper contradicted himself when he said his job is not to tell the American people what to think.
    During the interview he said his job and the “leaders” job was to go out and tell the American people what the problem with social security is.

    But let’s turn this question around.
    Why did you ignore the other 26.5 minutes of the Weeper’s interview?

    John Boehner recently had a piece of artwork removed from the Smithsonian, it was a video piece titled “A Fire In My Belly” made by David Wojnarwicz whom died of Aidz. Not only does Boehner claim “Americans have the right to think what they want” but he doesn’t want to get involved as its not his place to defend or dispel myth regarding the current President. Lets not forget “less government involvement”….
    But he does feel compelled to instruct outside agencies on what art they can display as he did to the Smithsonian with “A Fire In My Belly” and threatened the institution to cut its funding as he supported a religious organization “The Catholic League”-ignoring the separation of state from the church as many Republicans do.
    I think he’s a hypocrite, could care less about the Presidents role and made it seem like he’s indifferent. Which is why Republicans while appearing proper and just- rile mistrust.

    Good catch, port! Right now, since they are getting smacked with the truth about owebama’s destructive policies here and abroad, they regard the “birther” issue as a winning one for them.

      Right! They want to do anything they can to use misdirection and any thing else that is silly…

  • I H8 GOPers

    That reminds me. I haven’t seen Kalk’s receipt for his photograph, and I haven’t seen his birth certificate. I’m also not sure that he isn’t a Muslim. In fact, the Muslim word for califat is Kalifa (with a K). The Germans spell califat with a K, kalifat. In German, Kalk means calcium (with a C). Kalk = califat?

    Kalk = Manchurian candidate?

    Liberals = Liberty!

    Throw Obami’s supposed SS #s into the mix
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/06/11/obama-social-security-num_n_609299.html

    Lawsuit filed over Obama’s most frequent used SSN—org. issued to a woman born in 1890 in Conn.–yet there is no record of Obama ever living or working in Connecticut. Indeed, during this time period Obama would have been 15-16 years old and living in Hawaii at the time.

    lawsuit also has the ‘bamster linked in national databases to some 16 diff. SSN…….

    Why do his “followers” call him the ONE—and yet there are so many of him…….

    I’m a “documentor”—just show me the damn documents…..

    Gregory is not now, nor has he ever been a journalist or non-partisan, he is an extreme Left Wing Liberal and his job as part of the DNC Propaganda Ministry is to make GOP/Conservatives look bad and fail, while getting the nation to worship Lord Obama. Fair and balanced are alien concepts!

    regardless, the tan didnt handle it very well…. a good response would have been…… “are you kidding me? with everything we have going on, your ask me this? AGAIN? we should start calling you dan rather. im sorry ive answered this before. clearly. you didnt like my answer because i agree with you 100% and in your mind i am not supposed to agre with you on this, so now youre pressing for more in an effort to ‘make news’. lets move on to things that matter.”

    No matter what you believe about Obama’s citizenship or religion, Gregory was way out of line with his agressive demands that Boehner tell people what they should think.
