Virginia AG Provides Legal Advice To Birther Freaks

Another reason to hate VA. The state has awesome libraries and awesome parks. Even Richmond is kinda cool. But the state also has one lousy Attorney General. In what appears to be a recent interview, the newly elected AG Ken Cuccinelli tried to align himself with the birthers. HuffPo has the interview in which Cuccinelli is asked about Obama's birth certificate, etc:

"Q: How can we get proof?

Cuccinelli: Well... that's a good question. Not one I've thought a lot about because it hasn't been part of my campaign. I mean, someone is going to have to come forward with nailed down testimony that he was born in place B, wherever that is. You know, the speculation is Kenya. And that doesn't seem beyond the realm of possibility."

Whatever happened to a state AG just being tough on crime and not worrying about a president's birth certificate or having to cater to the right wing fringe?

The AG gave a more detailed application of how the birthers could make their case:

"Q: What can we do about Obama and the birth certificate thing?

Cuccinelli: It will get tested in my view when someone — when he signs a law, and someone is convicted of violating it and one of their defenses will be it's not a law because someone qualified to be President didn't sign it."

    In todays political world, everyone has GOT to hate the other political party no matter who they are, where they are, or what they are doing

    It is all about political points through digs and/or mockings

    It's pathetic

    Why didn't he practice is the same discretion before he became AG? Even though Ken Cuccinelli issued an apology it wasn't strong enough. He also tried to make the excuse that he was responding to a hypothetical question. The question was very direct and clear.

    In my opinion this is what the small portions of the republican party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” have brought you. They are good at “Follow the Leader” of their dullard leaders, they listen to Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush and Savage and the rest of the Blowhards. Are you surprise at what they do when you know what they think? The world is complicated and most republicans (Hamiliton, Lincoln, Roosevelt) believe that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now its about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. Although most republicans are trying to distant themselves from this fringe they have a long way to go.

    S T O P ! The Cover-up! The man sleeping in our White House is not a Natural Born American Citizen! He can N E V E R legally hold the Office of President of the United States of America. There is a Communist coup going on today! They want to destroy America as we know it and make us a Communist state. Wake Up America! This is war!

    old1- Do you know what it means to be a natural born American Citizen?

    According to an April 2000 report by the Congressional Research Service, most constitutional scholars interpret Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution as including citizens born outside the United States to parents who are U.S. citizens under the “natural born” requirement.

    So even if only his mother was a US Citizen and he was conceived and born in the jungles of Calcutta- he legally is a natural born Citizen of the US. It's in our constitution you douche.

    Yeah Montana, we can go round and round with the Democratic party BS too. Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Schumer and the rest of the party clowns are just as partisan as the Republicans idiots you downgrade. Their ideas and principles are just as wacky as any right wing stupidity.

    Typ- The republican party has devolved into a bunch of whining bitches now. Instead of fighthing for their beliefs and offering up alternatives, all they do is bitch and moan about how unfair Dems are. It's franly pathetic. Dems need to grow some backbones and squash these clowns at their own game. When they whine, call them out. Ask for legitimate responses instead of "no fair, I dropped my lollipop in the sandbox and I want yours now".
