Tom Delay Tells Chris Matthews He Would "Like the Obama to Produce His Birth Certificate"

MSNBCs Chris Matthews discovers that Tom DeLay wants to see Obamas gift certificate.

GOP House Majority Leader Tom Delay on the Chris Matthews show where he came right out and asked Matthews to ask President Obama to produce his birth certificate. Matthews had asked DeLay if he was a "birther," and Delay answered, "I would like the President to produce his birth certificate." Matthews proceeded to laugh at him.

Delay went on to point out that Democrats had questioned whether he was a citizen of Texas, requiring him to produce proof that he was. Delay said he could produce his birth certificate and said he thought Obama ought to be able to do the same.


Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay pulled no punches on Chris Matthews "Hardball"show on MSNBC today when asked if he is a "birther."

"Well, I’d like the president to produce his birth certificate," said DeLay. "I can. Most illegal aliens here in America can. Why can't the president of the United States produce his birth certificate? ... Chris, will you do me a favor? Will you ask the president to show me his gift certificate — I mean, his birth certificate?"

DeLay's outspokenness on the subject stands in stark contrast to any current member of Congress.

Implying Barack Obama is being unfairly singled out for questioning on the issue, Matthews asked DeLay whether anyone has asked him for proof of his birthplace, DeLay responded, "The Democrats sued me for being a resident of Texas. That's just like asking me for my birth certificate."

"Chris, the Constitution of the United States specifically says you have to be a natural born citizen," DeLay said.

"I know," Matthews responded. "But I’ve never asked you for yours."

"Ask me!" DeLay responded. "I’ll give it to you!"

Matthews said seeing a birth announcement in the Honolulu newspapers was enough to convince him of Obama's birth in Hawaii.

"Newspapers!" responded DeLay. "Is a newspaper article an official document?"

"No, it's not," conceded Matthews. "It's just common sense that we’re talking about here. Common sense."

"There isn't anybody in America that's been born in America that didn't get a birth certificate at Obama's age," said DeLay. "Maybe at my age there are people born out in — "

DeLay was forced out of office by a series of investigations by Democratic leadership. He is on a media tour promoting his appearance on "Dancing With the Stars."

Whenever Matthews is near Obama, they have to tie a 2X4 to his butt to keep him from fall in because he's got his nose so far up Obama's butt.

Matthews is saying there is no need to question obama's credibility. I don't think obama has any legitimate credibility. Any he may have had he's lost in the past 6 months.

Matthews was outclassed, again. He tried his rapid fire questioning, didn't work, He certainly couldn't intimidate Tom Delay and he knew it.

His answer to Tom Delay, if he would ask obama to see his BC, was telling. I am convinced, most of the media know obama is not a citizen.

Chris Matthews is a sawed off runt who thinks his crap don't stink. Obama is not a citizen. He is a puppet for Soros, who bought his election. We actually got the Manchurian candidate this time. Fork over the long form birth certificate!

Have you noticed how all the ones on the right side of the aisle that the Dems have demonized and ruined their careers are starting to have fun with the media now? Ain't got nothin' to lose!

I wonder if they have a plastic tarp covering Matthews' desk to keep all that spitage under control.

The birth certificate issue is tough to figure out. If you do a Google search for "daylight" "8i" and "taitz", you get some stuff that will make your head hurt. Reading between the lines, Orly Taitz husband is involved with Novartis, a software called 8i and the swine flu vaccine. Too much of a coincidence for me. But I really don't know what to make of it. Could be the birth cert is a red herring.

The media being the media, one has to wonder why they haven't pursued this birth certificate issue. The media could put the entire issue to rest just by asking obama publically to produce his BC. There may be something to this issue other than just is he an American citizen. Maybe one of his claimed parents is not his real parent. Maybe he was adopted prior to birth. Who knows? obama knows!

Well, when Chris proposes to Obama, and they go for a marriage license, what happens?

Bro'-mance is okay, I guess, but no Matthews-Obama nuptials are possible without documentation.

Rhod - would that be gay "jungle fever"?

Posted by: TomR at August 21, 2009 03:55 PM

Never thought of that, Tom. OUCH!

You all are great, thank you so much.
