• Robert Gibbs on the President's Birth Citizenship: "Made-Up Fictional Nonsense"

    So, for all you people who still doubt that Barack Obama was born in some other country, on some other planet, in some other dimension of time-space, here's a question for you:

    If it's such a ridiculous, moronic, imbecilic allegation, then why is the White House Press Secretary denying it?!

    QUESTION: Is there anything you can say that will make the birthers go away?

    GIBBS: No.

    QUESTION: Do you want to try?

    GIBBS: I mean, the God's honest truth is no. I mean, let's understand this. And I almost hate to indulge in such an august setting as the White House — and I mean this in seriousness — the White House briefing room discussing the made-up fictional nonsense of whether or not the president was born in this country.

    A year-and-a-half ago, I asked that the birth certificate be put on the Internet, because Lord knows, if you've got a birth certificate and you put it on the Internet, what else could be the story?

    Here's the deal, Bill. If I had some DNA, it wouldn't assuage those that don't believe he was born here.

    But I have news for them and for all of us: The president was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, the 50th state of the greatest country on the face of the Earth. He's a citizen.

    You see?! If you pay very close attention to Robert Gibbs's words, you'll notice that he says "He's a citizen," and not "He's absolutely definitely 100 percent a citizen." Aha!

    Think you can evade the question with some clever tap-dancing answering of the question? Not on my watch!

    I demand to see Barack Obama's mother's uterus!
