<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Since November 2008, Joseph Farah has wanted Barack Obama to quell Farah's doubts about Obama's eligibility. Among his reasons for being skeptical from the very beginning: the lack of a produced long-form birth certificate, the identity of the birth hospital, and conflicting reports on the specific location of his birth.

Now in 2011, a new election is around the corner, and Farah has a new "favorite" candidate: Herman Cain.

Curiously, however, Mr. Farah is failing to exact the same level of scrutiny upon Cain as he did upon Obama. We have no proof of where Cain was born at all. We haven't seen Cain's long form birth certificate, or even his short form. We don't know what hospital he was born in. We have no proof of who his parents were. We haven't seen any birth announcements, hospital records, school records, college records, passport records, medical records, or baptism records.

"But," as the objection is liable to be, "there is no doubt or question as to where Herman Cain was born." Really? There isn't?

According to various news stories, Herman Cain was born in Memphis, Tennessee. Similarly, according to Wikipedia, Herman Cain was born in Memphis, although no authority is provided for this assertion. Indeed, for years, Wikipedia flatly stated that Mr. Cain was born in Georgia.

And it was not just Wikipedia that claimed Herman Cain's birthplace was in Georgia, rather than its neighbor to the north. To wit:

Nation's Restaurant News - 1988

But the unfamiliar has seldom proved to be a hurdle for the Atlanta-born 42-year-old, who broke into food service only six years ago as a "Whopper flopper," manning the grill at a Burger King unit.

Yahoo News

But the crowd was waiting for the official announcement from Atlanta-born Cain himself.

BET

Born in Atlanta, Cain cooked up a career that landed him in the position of CEO of the National Restaurant Association.

The Fiscal Times

The Georgia-born Cain, the only African-American GOP candidate, has had broad experience as a businessman, media celebrity and fiscal expert.

Cartersville Patch

Is Georgia-born Herman Cain ready for the grueling spotlight of a presidential campaign?

Los Angeles Times

Not to be outdone in the canine arena, Georgia-born businessman Cain criticized...

New York Sun

Mr. Cain is a Southern man, born in Georgia, who probably has a better understanding of the Bull Connors of the world than the Harlem native Mr. Rangel.

Conservapedia

Cain was born in Georgia and grew up there.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Back in May, when Georgia native Herman Cain announced his campaign for the presidency...

Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Georgia native and tea party favorite Herman Cain

WSB Radio

While Herman Cain's popularity is increasing outside Georgia, the Atlanta native is the runaway leader in his home state.

Peach Pundit

The other Georgian in the race claims to have been born in Georgia, though birthers havenít yet started asking for his birth certificate. Herman Cain most recently has been a talk show host for WSB radio in Atlanta, but also has served as the CEO of Godfatherís Pizza and executive positions with Pillsbury and Coca Cola.

Indeed, this alone represents far more American news sources that disagree about Cain's birthplace than have ever disagreed about Obama's. WorldNetDaily regularly argues that there were inconsistent reports as to what hospital Obama was born in; but news sources, major news sources, cannot even agree on what state Mr. Cain was born in.

When, then, can we expect Joseph Farah, WorldNetDaily, and the rest of the Birther community to hold Herman Cain to the same standard they have applied to President Obama for the last three years? When are they going to demand that Herman Cain prove his eligibility for the Presidency? When are they going to start asking "Where's Herman Cain's Birth Certificate?" </div></div>

At a minimum, it would appear he has misled people into believing he's a native of Georgia/Atlanta, when he is not. Or is he?

LOL.... good post. IIARIOK! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

I think before long no one will care a thing about Herman Cain.


Cain's grossly ignorant statements in the last debate, have made the very idea of Cain being in the oval Office, outright laughable.

But then, so were Romney's and Gingrich's statements unfavorably revealing, not only of their dishonesty, but completely irrational statements were made by both of them, as regards foriegn policy.

Somehow I don't think it is going to serve either of them to be out there yapping about more Neocon invasions, or trying to suggest things that any person of even average intelligence and knowledge, is going to laugh over upon hearing it, even before the period is dry at the end of the sentence, so to speak.

I think Romney's statement about Iran getting nukes, would have to get the booby prize, for one of the most ridiculous statements ever made in a debate.

Honestly, IMO, of course, this last debate was the most comedic expose' to ever be presented during any Presidential level event.

I understand the president will take on a few of them next weekend.

Get out the popcorn! This is going to be good!

The Reps say, "Show the birth certificate". The Dems say, "We are hypocrites and show the birth certificate".

Thank you, although I think this is best seen as 'piling on.' 'Piling on' is not desperation, but instead, overkill, as in kicking a guy when he's down. (And he IS down, and sinking irremediably further down.)

That, or 'tweaking the right wing media.'
