Birthers have lost a lot of lawsuits and ballot challenges (the number 99 is mentioned). Birthers don’t address the disparity between their optimism at the outset and the results they get, but they do make excuses. By far the most common excuse is a defect in the courts. “The judge ruled against us because…”
- Obama bribed the judge
- Obama threatened the judge
- The judge is an Obama supporter
- The judge is a left-wing ideologue
- The judge is a traitor
- The judge didn’t look at the evidence
- The judge didn’t know the law
- The judge is an evil man
- The judge is afraid of riots in the streets
With every loss that excuse gets thinner and thinner and so we’ve seen a glimmer of a new strategy. Instead of blaming the judge, blame the Birther attorney.
Dean Haskins has most recently taken the lead in his criticism of the competence of Birther attorney Orly Taitz. However, Orly Taitz is at best responsible for just a handful of losses (one out of three in Georgia). No, the attorney most to blame for sheer incompetence is one able to practice in all 50 states, pro se. Birthers say that they are losing cases because individual birther defendants aren’t competent to represent themselves (and lack resources), and so they lose. When real lawyers (excluding Orly Taitz of course) are involved, the losses are the fault of the court for one or more of the reasons listed above.
We’re seeing this new excuse tried out on the Article II Super PAC site. The Birthers are tying to raise money to hire a good lawyer (for some reason Apuzzo was not invited) and they have settled on Larry Klayman1. The Article II PAC says:
Someone representing himself in court has a fool for a client – some eligibility challenge plaintiffs lack representation, funding.
Of course the Article II Super PAC is trying to raise money not excuse prior losses, but the principle is out there and I wouldn’t wonder if the excuse gains in popularity.
1I couldn’t get a solid sense of Klayman’s competence from all the biased material I’m finding. It does seem that Klayman thinks like a prosecutor (which he was). I would think an Obama attorney would take Klayman more seriously than they did Moe, Larry, and Curly.
Barack Hussein Obama, our president, is a traitor. Finally, his hatred for our nation and his plan to destroy it are crystal clear. He must be forced from office – legally – before our entire country goes down the drain for the final count!
Much has gone on in the last three years to show Obama’s true colors, sympathetic not to Judeo-Christians values and culture, but Islam and its surrogate-controlled states.
