The Orioles issue a statement about Luke Scott being a wacko birther

Obama Birth Certificate

The Baltimore Orioles issued a statement this afternoon in response to the multimedia freakout that has gone down in the wake of Luke Scott saying that President Obama wasn’t born in the United States:

“Luke Scott’s comments do not reflect the opinion of the Baltimore Orioles organization. The fact is that Barack Obama is our President, duly elected by the people of the United States. End of story.”

Bud Selig is relieved. If the team hadn’t stepped in and said this he would have had no choice but to take decisive action. Such as announcing the formation of a committee to study the birthplace of President Obama. I’m sure that we would have received the results of the study by 2015.

    Well from that statement it appears the Orioles don’t believe that Obama was born in the US either.

      WHEW! now that the O’s have made it clear that Obama is in fact our President i can sleep better.

        Wait a minute – this statement may be the most concrete basis for argument the birthers have. I mean, when was the last time the Orioles got something right?

    …end of story….if only. Meanwhile the world economy is faltering, the Koreas are on a collision course, Iran is spinning uranium, State secrets are being released to enemies of the State, education in the U.S. is losing ground to the world, immigration reform is still an issue (I think), the world may or may not be getting warmer b/c of humans, Sarah Palin still exists, and someone stole my lunch money. But yeah, Obama’s citizenship is still the big issue. Go shoot another 10-pointer, Luke, you douchenozzle.

      Luke Scott stole your lunch money, didn’t he?

    Boy, out of that whole mess the thing I am most happy about is that Bud Selig is not getting involved!

    • thinman61 - Dec 8, 2010 at 4:58 PM

      Something Yankee fans and Red Sox fans can agree upon.

    wow, must have been a slow afternoon.

    PS: Luke Scott is awesome!

    Luke Scott is an IDIOT!!!! American people elected Obama, he is our President. Have to wonder…. if our President was an old, white man, and didn’t have a unique name would his birth place be questioned?

      ( if our President was an old, white man, and didn’t have a unique name would his birth place be questioned?)
      Budda Budda Budda. So you gotta throw a race card in it. You probably thrive on finding a way to pull up your shorts and say IDIOTIC things like that!

        Budda, you hit it right on the head. Those who don’t think racism and religious bigotry are involved in this “birther” idiocy are burying their heads up their backsides. Welcome to America; racism is still very much alive and well here. Hell, I don’t even like meerkats.

        At this point, I’m beginning to think that the best thing that could happen to this country would be for someone to find Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate…

      • budda1 - Dec 9, 2010 at 1:39 AM

        Whoa… gunsmoke…wait a minute there… I said nothing about racism. I simply put to question if our current president was in fact an old white man, which we have had as presidents since 1789, and if he had a name like James Monroe or Andrew Johnson there wouldn’t be as much debate about the birth place of our current president. I am in fact white so NO this is not about race! Do you truly believe that President Obama during not only his legal years as a lawyer but his years serving as a senator could he hide his birthplace? I know that running for President of the United States is incredibly easy (note of sarcasm just in case you didn’t understand), I mean it’s not like the the media/political opponents/special interest groups take any interest in a Presidential nominee. Give me a break, they interview everyone from their first girlfriend to their childhood best friend. So gunsmoke, while you ponder where our President was born. I am more concerned with the fact that there starving children in the world, that we still haven’t found a cure for cancer, and that people don’t have access to proper healthcare.

        Kenyan birth certificate? What happened to his Indonesian birth certificate? Surely he couldn’t have had both of them suppressed, could he?

      • chilidog99 - Dec 9, 2010 at 11:28 AM

        I’ll top that, ol gator, I want to see his Irish birth certificate. you know he has Irish ancestry and with a name like O’Bama, you got to figure he has irish citizenship as well.

      • ta192 - Dec 9, 2010 at 3:00 PM

        Brock O’Bama, nice Irish lad…

  6. hasbeen5 - Dec 9, 2010 at 9:00 AM

    I wish the birther argument would go away. It takes away from the legitimate concerns, like the fact that he screws up everything he touches.

  7. misstickly - Dec 9, 2010 at 10:07 AM

    Yeah, yeah, even the Hawaii Department of Health is wacko, eh?

    Because last Friday, through an open records request, the Hawaii Department of Health released an image of their official raised seal.

    Obama’s COLB does not bear that image and it isn’t a ‘raised seal’ as the law requires, it’s ‘incised.’ And Arlen Specter blabbed that Congress knew the text from that seal should be raised for it to be an official and legal document.

      What is this?

      Birthertards are so amusing.
