Birther Theory of the Day

Obama’s MySpace page betrays him.

Obama’s MySpace page: I’m 52 years old, not 48

If President Obama were indeed born in Hawaii, was it while the islands were a territory of the United States?

A new wrinkle in the dispute over his birth – and whether he is eligible to be president under the U.S. Constitution’s requirement that the president be a “natural born” citizen – appeared today when Obama’s official MySpace page declared his age is 52, thus placing his birth year at 1957 instead of 1961 as has been claimed.

That would mean he would have been born during the archipelago’s time as a territory of the U.S., the islands’ status from about 1900 until statehood in 1959.

The birth year also conflicts with campaign and other White House information that have discussed his 48th birthday this month.

Well that does it for me. I have no choice but to declare myself a birther now. There’s no document from Hawaii that can be more legitimate than someone’s MySpace page.

  1. You know, Joey Ramone (and he speaks for all of us…when he was alive…) said it best…

    Beat on the birthers…beat on the birthers… “BEAT ON THE BIRTHERS WITH A BASEBALL BAT, OH YEAH!”

  2. But since it’s so obvious that he wasn’t born in the US, there simply HAS to be a reason WHY/HOW he wasn’t born in the US! The birthers are using math! They know the outcome of the equation (not born in the US), so now all they have to do is find the proof (mathematical and geographic calculations that produce the required result)! We’re just not THINKING hard enough! If you already know that 5 is the answer to 2+2, then clearly it’s just a simple matter of increasing the value of one of those 2s! It’s SCIENCE!
