John Boehner On Meet The Press: Obama Is A Citizen And A Christian – Why Do Americans Still Question The Story?

John Boehner said yesterday on Meet The Press, with the argumentative David Gregory hosting, that if the State of Hawaii asserts that Barack Obama was born there, it’s good enough for the Speaker of The House.  He also takes the President at his word when Obama says that he’s a Christian.  Mr. Gregory was far from satisfied with Boehner’s position.  But Boehner declined, even when badgered by the host, to tell Americans what they should think or believe about those two issues.  Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

 So, why do millions of Americans have doubts about the veracity of Obama’s historical roots as he’s presented them, and about his life-story?  Here’s the link to the Meet the Press video, which includes a clip from a Fox News Frank Luntz focus group survey in Iowa, which reveals that some Americans believe that Obama is really a Muslim:

 JB:  David, it’s not my job to stand up and tell the American people what to think.  Our job in Washington is to listen to the American people.  Having said that, the State of Hawaii has said that he was born there.  That’s good enough for me.  The President says he’s a Christian.  I accept him at his word.

 DG:  But isn’t that a little bit fast and loose?  I mean, you are the leader in Congress and you’re not standing up to obvious facts and saying these are facts. If you don’t believe that, it’s nonsense.

 JB:  I just outlined the facts, as I understand them.  I believe that the President is a citizen.  I believe the President is a Christian.  I’ll take him at his word.

 DG:  But, that kind of ignorance about whether he’s a Muslim doesn’t concern you?

 JB:  The American people have the right to think what they want to think.  I can’t, it’s not my job to tell them.

 DG:  Why isn’t it your job to stand up and say, no, the facts are these?  Didn’t John McCain do that…

 Listen to all of it.

 David Gregory and friends would like to shut the questions up and never allow them to be asked again.  He’s content to leave them unanswered.  Let’s hope he and his partners in TV media, including Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck over at Fox News, are not successful.

 So, why, again, do so many Americans have so many questions about who this man Obama really is and from whence came he?

 There is one person who can answer the questions and put this turmoil to rest, by releasing all of his documentary history that to this point he has purposefully kept from public scrutiny.  That man is Barack Hussein Obama.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

    Does the birth cert really matter? According to wikipedia ( , since his mother was a US citizen, and presumably the following is true, he’s automatically a citizen. I’m not in support of the missing cert, but as far as the citizenship angle, it seems moot to me:

    If one parent is a U.S. citizen and the other parent is not, the child is a citizen if
    the U.S. citizen parent has been “physically present” in the U.S. before the child’s birth for a total period of at least five years, and at least two of those five years were after the U.S. citizen parent’s fourteenth birthday.
