Barak Obama Is ... Canadian ... !!??

Have you heard the latest? Obama is Canadian -- in fact, he was born right here in Vancouver. Yes...! According to the supermarket rag birdcage liner magazine the "Globe", Obama’s alleged Hawaii Certification of Live Birth is forged. A Canadian Broadcaster, Brian Barron, believes Obama was born in Vancouver. Barron says that Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, gave birth to Obama in Vancouver shortly before she relocated to Seattle, Washington to attend classes at the University of Washington. "But when she found out Obama Sr. had another wife, she chose to conceal Barack's Canadian birth and registered him in Hawaii as a U.S. citizen to prevent Obama Sr. from possibly taking him away on his Kenyan passport," says Barron.

Okay, let me make this perfectly clear. We will take responsibility for Jim Carrey, Shania Twain, Glenn Ford, John Candy, Keanu Reeves, Martin Short, Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, Rachel McAdams, Howie Mandel, Donald and Keifer Sutherland, Dan Aykroyd, Brendan Fraser, Art Linkletter, Alex Trebek, Eugene Levy, and -- God help us, Celine Dion -- all of whom are Canadians. But I would prefer not to take responsibility for Mr. Obama. It is no secret that I really don't care for him. Now, don't get me wrong -- if I were an American, I would probably vote Democrat. I'm not sure I could adhere to the ideologies of the Republican party as it now stands. But since I am not an American, and I don't fully understand American politics, the subject is moot.

However....

After all the emotional frenzy leading up to the election of the current American President, I continue to believe that in the long run, he is going to prove to be a bit of a disappointment. This is just my humble opinion from over here in Canada. And of course, as a Canadian I am really not entitled to an opinion -- except in the case where Mr. Obama may just turn out to be -- Canadian.

Oh, goodness, what next...

*bawahahah* That's the best joke I have ever heard! *LOLZ*

Seriously, WT... I must be dreaming!

Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Yes, even Canadians.

Marguerite said...

Wow, now this is an interesting post! This news should keep the press busy for a while. But even is his mother did this, who could blame her for protecting her child?
Come on over when you can, I have an award for you!

lovelyprism said...

LOL, well that's just as believable as all the other theories. More so even since she managed to get to Washington so quickly.

Hmmm...do you really believe this? Or is it just another rumour going around? Just wonderin'...

jeannette stgermain said...

Oh-uh, it may be true - but would it change anything?? I think this one is too clever to be impeached! It seems that "they" keep doing that with every new president; for the longest time they try to prove that he shouldn't be the president in the first place (with Bush it was the number of votes- with Obama it's his citizenship at birth).

the walking man said...

Uhhhhh...I don't know about President Obama but you also have to take responsibility for Governor Jennifer Granholm of Michigan as she too was Canadian born. Let's just say the past 8 years here have not been splendid.

Allen said...

I agree with Jeanette. I just wish the people that start this up would just give it up. Just once would be nice.

I have a hard time believing that he is a Canadian.

Are you sure about him being Canadian? I don't believe it. He doesn't say "eh", eh?

KathyB. said...

Does this mean Canada can claim him? Please??????

HAPPY IN NEVADA said...

I'm glad he's my president - Canadian or born in the USA; he's the best we've had in 8 years, and I'm darned tired of the rumors......

When the time is right, I'm sure Obama will let the rest of the world know 'what's what', and right now he's getting a kick out of watching the idiots who'd even join in the gossip.

I think it's going to be a big 'sucker-punch', and the people who've been spreading this tripe, are going to get it right smack dab in the belly!

HAPPY IN NEVADA said...

Oh yes, after I gave birth to my 5th child, I flew with my husband and the rest of the kids from Michigan, to Hawaii; stayed 3 days, and flew to Seattle, Washington where we picked out a new home - all of that in less than 10 days, so it's not difficult to imagine a very young mother doing this when she has only one wee babe to carry along..........

The Panorama said...

No doubt the expectations are high but Barack Omaba means something to the rest of the world too. It was the first time even people here celebrated when he became president.
Can you imagine that happening in Norway??????? Not in my lifetime am sure.
If Obama goes through with the reforms in the health sector, that alone will be a big achievement...then many US citizens need not take the bus to Canada to buy cheaper medicines!

Avril Fleur said...

I SO wish that he was Canadian and would come up here and kick some Tory A$S! I'd take him in half a heartbeat over that dud we have for a PM...that is my opinion and I am entitled to it because I AM CANADIAN! :)

Russell said...

Well.... if you REALLY want to know.... I heard from a good friend of mine, who heard it from his neighbor, who had heard it from a guy he works with, who heard it from his wife, who heard it from the lady at the convenience store, who heard it from the man who brings the bread every morning that Obama is not really Obama!

Actually, the man who is pretending to be Obama is actually his secret evil twin! And Joe Biden knows. And so do lots of other people. But no one can tell anyone else. Because it is a secret. Though lots of people know.

The CIA is involved in a cover up. And that is because everyone is conspiring to cover something REALLY interesting...!! Heh!

Gledwood said...

I don't know about Canadian but he looks scarily young to me

susie said...

Well, I'm not an Obama fan either, but this birth certificate business is getting kind of old. I think that he was born in Hawaii, but maybe there's something else on the certificate he doesn't want everyone to see. Makes the most sense to me.

Maureen said...

I'm an American and I don't understand our politics either. I'm a die hard for Hillary and am frankly more afraid for Obama than anything else.

The Bug said...

That's hilarious Jo! I voted for him & I'm crossing my fingers that he lives up to my expectations - but he is, after all, a politician, so I'm not holding my breath along with those crossed fingers.

TC said...

I used to be Republican, can't even listen to them anymore, have to go Democrat even though I don't agree with some things.

Obama's mother surely had quite a bit of money and time to make this all happen not to mention things just clicking right? Pretty good for a young woman in the 60s? Perhaps he was really born in the Taj Mahal and is really Indian?

Brenda said...

Hahaha...can't even leave a half way intelligent comment because I am laughing so hard at Russell's comment.....

Barry said...

Do we really have to take responsibility for William Shatner?

Please say no. Please, please....

Land of shimp said...

The next rumor will be that he's secretly a citizen of Jupiter :-) I think everyone with a goodly dosing of sense and reason knows full well that Obama is a U.S. citizen but the conspiracy is sort of amusing. Partially because it's just inane and partially because boy, the conspiracy theorists are crediting Obama's mother with a level of prescience that would be astounding.

I was also a Hilary supporter, but switched on over to voting for Obama (along with the rest of my household) when our final choices were presented to us.

Bottom line is he's just a guy, a politician, feet of clay and an agenda, just like every other politician out there. I'm willing to wait and see what he does, but thankfully I never expected him to bring the dawn of a new age. I just hope he does a good job, and helps solve some of our bigger problems.

I'm fascinated by how he went from being "Obama, the secret Kenyan." to "Obama, the secret Canadian." though. I have a feeling it's the writers way of poking broad fun at the Birthers.

Cedar said...

I heard the same thing Russell did from the guy who mows my lawn, who heard it from his wife's sister, who heard it from her hairstylist who dated a guy that knew a guy that worked at the MacDonald's off of Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.

carolyn said...

I can't believe people still don't know that our President HAS shown the public his birth certificate. The wing-nuts are just trying to divert all attention from the all important health-care issue. Wake up U.S., the republican agenda is to take down Obama, health-care for everyone be damned. They will do this by any means they can, including lies, racism and hate mongering.

I enjoy your blog.

Mean Mama said...

I did a little research on this subject number one because Obama is a great president, and I am sick of this stupid discussion. I find it very interesting that the Republicans have been awfully quiet about the fact that John McCain was born in the Panama Canal zone. He was not born in the US and yet they have no problem with that. Many Republicans have said that Obama is a citizen of Kenya, which is absurd because his mother was no where near Kenya at the time, and the Fourteenth Amendment clearly states that anyone born in the United States is a citizen regardless of their parents citizenship. It also grants the rights of these "anchor children" to bring their relatives to the US for naturalization. On Oct 31, 2009 the Hawaii Department of Health produced Obama's paper birth certificate, and US officials examined it and confirmed that it has the raised seal of the State. Furthermore the United States Congress passed a ratification commemerating the 50th Anniversary of Hawaii's statehood. The ratification also included a clause which states...whereas the 44th president of the United States was born in Honolulu Hawaii on Aug, 4 1961. Obama's birth certificate number is 151-1961-010641. There was a birth announcement for Barack Obama which has his and his parents name parents name on it with his birthday which was run in the Honolulu Advertiser Sunday Aug 13, 1961. Despite all of the allegations and demands for impeachment, it is a lost cause for these nut job, white wing, wackadoos. The Congress has ratified him as a US Citizen and as the president. Due Process under the law would never find him to not be a natural born citizen. His certificate has been shown to the public, and validated by officials and the US Congress. Conspiracy theorists should just give it up.

Mean Mama said...

By the way, I happen to think that Canada has a great healthcare system, and the US should model theirs after Canada's.

Jo said...

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments. My silly little post was meant in fun ... I guess I have a weird sense of the ridiculous, and to me the implication that Obama was born in Vancouver was just that -- ridiculous. I didn't think anyone could possibly take it seriously. It was not meant to be taken seriously. I really don't care where Obama was born, unfortunately.

nomore said...

It's the special inform..and i just remind the Alex Haley, his Roots...Also the Adam and EVE too.......Here is rainy today..Just drop

pranksygang said...

Oh dear.. even i don't understand American Politics much and i don't like Mr.Obama either.

Paula Slade said...

What will the media think of next in order to get new readers?!?!!! Maybe we'll see that he truly is an alien - from outer space! LOL
IMHO it's too soon to tell if he will be a disappointment, there is so much on his plate at this point.
