Gibbs: It’s on the Internet Lester….

May 28, 2009

Chief Obama liar, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, laughed off a question from Lester Kinsolving about Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate. Claiming to be “astounded” at the question Gibbs said “You’re looking for the president’s birth certificate? It’s on the Internet, Lester.” “Long-form, listing his hospital and physician,” Kinsolving replied. (see video from Politico44)

Kinsolving made reference to the 400,000 plus names on a petition circulated by World Net Daily saying; “Why the president, who has pledged transparency in his administration, would not release his long-form birth certificate to establish his constitutional eligibility for office”. Spokesman Robert Gibbs then guffawed in unison with other members of the Washington press corps.

World Net Daily notes:

“It was the first time any member of the press corps has publicly asked a member of the administration a question directly related to Obama’s constitutional eligibility for office as a “natural born citizen.”
The “Certification of Live Birth” posted online and widely touted as “Obama’s birth certificate” does not in any way prove he was born in Hawaii, since the same “short-form” document is easily obtainable for children not born in Hawaii. The true “long-form” birth certificate – which includes information like the name of the birth hospital and attending physician – is the only document
that can prove Obama was born in Hawaii, but to date he has not permitted its release for public or press scrutiny.
