Video: Ohio Congresswoman Tells Supporter that Obama is Not a Citizen and Can’t Be President

Republicans may want to just keep away from open mikes for a while. After a ranking Republican in California was caught describing in disgusting detail sex with a lobbyist, Republican Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio) was caught whispering to a constituent that she agrees that President Obama is not a legitimate president due to his birth.

On the tape, a clearly unhinged supporter is insisting the Obama can’t be a president because of his birth. Schmidt is heard saying “M’aam, m’aam. I agree with you, but the courts don’t.”

It still beats relations with a lobbyist, but Schmidt is in the unenviable position of stating either than she believe Obama is a foreign-born, constitutional pretender or say that she will say anything to constituents.

  2. It’s all good Buddha, lifes a lesson that you won’t find out til the end whether you pass or fail.

  3. bda,

    Oh I had several to choose from. Irony was indeed a selection criteria. That and the guy just couldn’t stop laughing about it. It was kind of infectious.

    I hope you always wanted to be a cautionary tale when you grew up. Because it looks like you got your wish.

    So to all the young ‘un’s out there, let this be a lesson to you. Just remember that sticks and stones can break your bones but your own words can make you look like a jackass for a really really long time. So think twice, speak once. Not just an aspiration but in line with the dictates of biology in evolving bilateral symmetry including the two openings at each end. One of which should never be spoken through but all too often is.

    Good night, kiddies!

    And remember, if you’re sitting on a tuffit eating your curds and whey you’re far more likely to run into spiders than if your mom would just let you eat your cottage cheese in the kitchen like a normal child. The two of you should have a talk about sanitary eating conditions.

  4. Yea Buddha, it is, Unfortunately. Ironically at church today our pastor talked about things you wished you never said.

  5. I had read somewhere, maybe here, that seceding and comments like this are tantamount to treason. If they incite someone to play the role of the willing fool, could they be charged with complicity of the same charge? What amount of effort is necessary for the Prosecutor to establish a prima facie case? Where does the first amendment come into play and what about the original constitution.

    Ah ha, ask the question and google it and here you are:

    “The Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation, the first constitution of the United States, on November 15, 1777. However, ratification of the Articles of Confederation by all thirteen states did not occur until March 1, 1781. The Articles created a loose confederation of sovereign states and a weak central government, leaving most of the power with the state governments. The need for a stronger Federal government soon became apparent and eventually led to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. The present United States Constitution replaced the Articles of Confederation on March 4, 1789.”

    So they could be tried for “Treason, High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” As the right to a loose confederation of states does not exist except for what the Strong Central Government gives to them. This makes a lot of sense to me.

    I guess this is where the terms “Incorporation by Reference and Merger” come into play.

  6. mespo,

    Hollywood is calling.

    You’ve missed your true calling: casting director.

    Now if you can just convince Mrs. mespo that a never ending stream of starlets is strictly business, you could be cooking with gas so to speak.

  7. “First of all, I reject the idea that the ‘birther’ campaign is motivated by racism.”

    Paglia said it, I didn’t, so in summation Paglia is the Bigot.

    Mike have you read the interview with Briezinski where he says if Israel strikes at Iran they must fly over Iraq and the U.S. should shoot their planes down.

  8. “First of all, I reject the idea that the ‘birther’ campaign is motivated by racism.”

    The considered opinion of a bigot.
