Trump: You’re welcome, America

posted at 8:46 pm on April 27, 2011 by Allahpundit

“I have done a great service to the American people,” he says, which is true. He’s helped produce a whole new document that’ll be summarily dismissed as a CIA forgery or whatever. Hey — Panetta must have done something to warrant that promotion, right?

The scene today in New Hampshire:

“Did you hear?” he asked a group of about 50 workers at the Wilcox plant outside of Portsmouth. “I am so proud of myself! I got this guy to show his birth certificate!”…

He was greeted by throngs everywhere he went, mobbed as he walked down Market Street in Portsmouth. One onlooker screamed, “You’re a bigot!” But most shouted out approval, with one man calling out, “Get the grades!”

Below you’ll find John King asking him one of two questions that arose after this morning’s revelation, namely, didn’t Trump say just two days ago that “somebody” told him the birth certificate was missing? No solid answer here, although if he ends up deciding that the new birth certificate is a forgery, I guess that’ll be the answer. The second question, then: Didn’t he tell Stephanopoulos that he might finally release his tax returns if The One came clean about the birth certificate? What happened? Quote:

My colleague Michael Falcone caught up with Trump in New Hampshire and asked him if he would follow through and release his tax returns.

“That’s something I would be thinking about doing anyway. That is certainly something I’d be thinking about doing anyway. But before I do anything I have to make the decision in June and the first thing I’m going to be releasing will be financials,” Trump said.

Falcone asked again, will you fulfill that pledge that you made where you said I’m going to tie the birth certificate to my tax records?

“Yeah, at the appropriate time,” Trump responded.

The One must be kicking himself after reading that. If only he’d answered questions about releasing the birth certificate with “at the appropriate time.” Turns out the Democrats were right about their having a problem with “messaging.”

Robert Gibbs also called on Trump to release his tax returns today. Trump’s response: “Gibbs is a loser.” Touche.

If only he’d answered questions about releasing the birth certificate with “at the appropriate time.”

Which was 2008.

So, it’s done a few years late, that’s all. I guess that whole, “I couldn’t provide it even if I wanted to because of Hawaii rules and stuff” was just another lie. (But I’m SURE he’s telling the truth THIS time).

Well done, Donald for proving that when the right person puts enough pressure on Obama the right way (hitting him in the popularity poll where it hurts), he’ll cave.

I’ll keep enjoying Trump’s 3 stooges-like multiple slaps to Obama and the media at the same time until we get closer to the election. Then let’s see where chips have fallen by then and we’ll hopefully pick a candidate that does more than just play a conservative on TV.

There are many people in this country, and more than a few on this thread, whose fury and frustration over the fact Barack Obama is President of the United States will never be mollified.

It doesn’t matter how many birth certificates or school records he produces, those who can’t stand the reality of a black President will never accept his legitimacy.

Set up all the strawman arguments you want, Cindy. I can’t be buggered to knock them down.

This issue should have been settled two and a half years ago when the President released the Certificate of Live Birth; a perfectly legal and valid document. That it ultimately came down to the President having to produce further “ID” has nothing to do with his policies and everything to do with the fact that some people can’t stand that we have a black President.

Don’t have to be a social scientist to figure that out.

Yeah, that’s why people are opposed to ObamaCare and $14 trillion in debt. All because Obama’s black. Heck, that’s why people who didn’t vote for him in 2008 acted the way they did — because Obama’s black.

Thanks for the link. Some real differences here:

1) As the article states, the question of “natural born” had been dealt with before with Barry Goldwater.
2) The evidence is clear and unequivocal that Obama was born in Hawaii.
3) McCain’s status as an American was not questioned for an ensuing two years in contradiction to the facts on record. Despite the question being raised, there was no serious opposition to McCain or Goldwater for that matter.

So what’s the difference between those two politicians and Obama?

Folks like getting paid, and being careful and not being too controversial is the best way to keep those paychecks coming-self preservation.

Pretty sickening to see Hannity desperately trying to figure out why Obama has been hiding his personal documentation, and O’Reilly just can’t figure out why Obama insists on attending black liberation theology churches. Hmmmm-I know, truly puzzling.

But they aren’t going to risk their high incomes for any ideology or potential truth. They hope to maintain the status quo, because in a worst case societal collapse scenario, their jobs and the big bucks will evaporate.

When has it never been??

Enjoy the circus and hope that some of the random shots he’s taking actually hit something. This birther thing did – you really think Obama wanted to deal with it now? The TMZ crowd (Obama’s base) were probably starting to wonder what this “birther” thing was about and the pollsters were starting to note this. Damage control and stopping it early before people really started to wonder.

Some say it was a distraction for the bad $$ news, but if the LSM doesn’t report it who’s going to know about it anyways? Obama knows he has their cooperation.

Trump’s not going anywhere until he’s had enough and all the complaining and whining about his freak show isn’t going to accomplish anything. Save that energy for when it matters.

Lol, this guy is a riot. He’s leading the media around by the nose. Trump was crucial in getting Obama to release the long-form birth certificate, so in that sense it was a victory for everyone who wants to see this debate put to rest. But it was Trump who personally claimed that the birth certificate was missing, insinuated that he had P.I.’s in HA who had uncovered circumstantial evidence of fraud, and generally made up a lot of BS that turned out to be wildly inaccurate… yet Trump goes out and declares victory, and the media eats it up.

Trump: You’re welcome, America, for my heroic efforts to reveal absolutely nothing new. Aren’t I awesome?

Inspirational quotes from Donald Trump:

“Good morning. Today I am very proud of myself, because I have accomplished something that nobody else has been able to accomplish.”

The most astounding accomplishment by Trump was getting little Bammie out of bed before 9am.

Release the tax returns Trump!

Magnus on April 28, 2011 at 12:26 PM

I can’t believe no one sees what a self righteous tool trump is. It is very clear he will not do anything unless it benefits him, now he wants American to bow down to him and fawn while he pats himself on the back for a perceived win. The reason he is playing this game is because he is using you all to inflate his ego and you guys are completely fawning over it. Did he acknowledge ANY of the hundreds of people that have been spending money, trying to get laws made, etc about this birth cert issue? No, he thanks himself and congratulated himself over and over again and is telling YOU to thank him? He didn’t even thank you guys for your support through this whole thing.

Okay where are his tax returns now, where is this mythical CNN poll that was him against Obama and him winning? Why did he suddenly become a pro life conservative a few weeks ago and has absolutely NO track record of doing anything conservative before. His policy ideas would be disastrous and he would probably start more wars. Most of all he is a hypocrite. He whines about China manipulating their currency and their goods are cheaper and that’s why he can’t buy anything from American or another country, but he can’t explain why he isn’t willing to pay a little bit more for things made here or other places besides China when most modest income American that believe in supporting American business are willing to look for that Made In USA label and pay a dollar more for something.

You guys are getting played and used big time and you don’t see it and he’ll lead you off a cliff. He knows that you are too blind by your hatred for Obama to see through him. It’s a trap.

Doesn’t he realize he’s a fake news show on a fake news outlet?

Notice how OBOTS continue to ignore graphics experts who have gone on record stating the “NEW” COLB is an obvious forgery? It must really suck to have have to knowingly sacrifice honesty for allegiance.

The only one spouting racial rhetoric is you, Mudhead.

Chew on this for a bit: this was written by one of the co-founders of the Power Line blog. You remember them, they helped expose your media’s attempt to fix a Presidential election in 2004 by airing a false story about the incumbent President solely based on forged documents.

Let’s think back to when polls showed that many Democrats–in some polls a majority of Democrats–believed that President Bush was behind the September 11 attacks.

Was that outrageous suspicion fueled by racial hostility? And do you recall the Times ever demanding that Democratic leaders make their rank and file stop asserting ridiculous claims against President Bush? No, neither do I.

Barack Obama is President of the United States. Pretty much everything he does is going to be criticized by someone, rightly or wrongly. That is the political world we live in, and Obama and his supporters should get used to it. For the Democrats to try to erect a protective shield around Obama based on race is both futile and, I think, counterproductive. Ultimately, it can only feed the general perception that Obama is a weak leader.

BTW, Chump, SCTV was much funnier!

Del Dolemonte on April 28, 2011 at 2:28 PM

WASHINGTON–White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett said President Obama will not release his academic records, commenting a day after Obama put out his “long form” birth certificate and Donald Trump decided to press his luck by demanding Obama’s college transcripts.

“We know this is nonsense,” Jarrett said in an interview on The Joe Madison Show on SiriusXM on Thursday morning.”He is almost 50 years old. And he is president of the United States and I don’t think anybody will debate his intelligence and so now we do need to get serious…let’s just get serious…get back to focusing on what’s important.

We will debate it. This man is incompetent and s/b fired for that alone in 2012.

The President of the United States of America is compelled to “show some ID” says a lot about the state of this nation.
chumpThreads on April 27, 2011 at 10:00 PM

And the fact that I have to “show some ID” just to get a hotel room says a lot about the state of this nation as well.

…none of which are white.

So, even though you should be banned for your disgusting racial attack on HotAir commenters, I guess we’re gonna all have to settle for telling you to

Alas, Jindal is likely not a “natural born citizen”

Fed45 on April 28, 2011 at 3:34 PM

There are many people in this country, and more than a few on this thread, whose fury and frustration over the fact Barack Obama is President of the United States will never be mollified.

chumpThreads on April 27, 2011 at 10:00 PM

That’s true. But none of that frusration has to do with him being half black. I, for one, am more frustrated with his whitey half.

Obama rolled over for his LFBC because of Donald Trump! I can’t wait to see what he’ll do for his transcripts.

Valerie Jarret should be subpoenaed, questioned and exposed for the communist she is.

SAUL ALISNKY! YOU MAGNIFICENT B@ST@RD!

I’m very glad a blog like Gateway Pundit is covering the allegations of fraud. Will Hot Air? I doubt it, but maybe in two years.
