I just posted this story stating the bill was postponed because they didn't have a quorum. Which is it?

it's just that some people won't accept it because they simply don't want Obama to be POTUS.


No, some people just don't want the highest public employment position in this country to be outsourced to Kenya. Unless he's going to accept below minimum wage to hold his position, those of us signing his paycheck have every right to question the constitutional legality of his employment.

The resolution was in honor of the anniversary of the statehood of Hawaii.

That much is standard procedure and to recognize Hawaii as the birthplace of the president seems only natural, if indeed he was born there, which I believe that he was.

I also believe that the resolution would not make his birthplace any more or less factual and wouldn't change things if he were found to be born elsewhere.

They took the vote once the evening session started... at which time they had a quorum.

Vote was 378 - 0 with 50 not voting.



The final vote was 378-0, with 220 Democrats and 158 Republicans voting in favor of the resolution. More than 50 members did not vote.

Imagine that! Ranting and raving to ensure accountability when poor decisions are made, and applauding them when good decisions are made. Wow, what a concept!

So I suppose you applaud Congress when they pass legislation you disagree with? Or do you rant and rave when they pass legislation you agree with? It can't be neither, because that would make you a hypocrite.

What does this resolution solve or resolve in your opinion?

It is a resolution spearheaded by Obama's party in conjunction with some Reps who have legit reasons for not voting against the measure.

Your article also says non-binding.

I don't know what you are talking about. I don't think this was a good decision at all. And its true people are always pointing fingers and calling these guys corrupt but then when they do something they agree with all of a sudden everything is all good? No, not in my book, sorry.

And once again this decision DOES NOT prove hes a legal resident, sorry to say. You keep supporting Obama, not me though.

And don't call me a hypocrite I disagree with a huge chunk of the stuff these guys pass. Even things I agree with I still find problems with.


Edit: after reading the thread you appear to not support Obama either, so I don't know why your going after me, but Ok wahtever, lol.

It is a non-binding resolution and one aimed primarily at celebrating Hawaii's 50th Anniversary of State Hood.

The addition of it being Obama's Birth Place was just a piggy back, back door attempt to staunch the mounting tide of criticism about the Birth Certificate.

It's an obvious ploy and a desperate ploy where the actuall issue of Obama's Birth Certificate being valid and indicative of him actually being born there was not even investigated.

It is just a propoganda stunt that is likely to backfire because it reeks of yet another half and deceptive measure to avoid doing the simplest thing in the world, DISPLAY YOUR REAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE MR. SORETTO!

This does not mean anything, they already aproved him once, they would have looked like fools to vote Nay.
Plus would they vote against Hawaii's 50th anniversary.

The ones that would have voted Nay, would have ran out before the vote.

Those of you that are so happy with Obama, all his promises were lies, the things he complained about, he has now done hisself.

If Bush was one of the worst Presidents, Obama will go down as the one that helped destroy the U.S.A..

G save the Queen, I heard he was that to.

O.K. Thanks for clearing that up. Foolish of me not to consider they would attempt two votes in one day. No doubt they wanted to put this baby to bed before the opposition mounted.

Thanks for giving me a laugh. Politicians put themselves in a goldfish bowl and we often get to know more than we bargained for - like it or not.

You could have just looked at my avatar and known I don't support Obama.

I'm going after what you said because what you said is hypocritical. Just because you and I agree on Obama doesn't mean I have to agree with everything you say.

You pointed out how people rant and rave about legislation they don't like, and applaud legislation they do. My point is who doesn't do that? I'm quite sure everyone does. That's why I attacked your post.

Well I understand that now! But I atleast never do that, I can't think of the last thing I applauded these guys for. Its been years! And I'm sure it has been for most the people on here, thats why I find this funny! Tomorrow all the guys that passed this will go back to being dishonest, evil, corrupt demons in these peoples eyes... that is until they pass something Pro-Obama again. I myself don't go either way really so I hardly ever agree with anything (and I'm not trying to sound arrogant, its just I am neither conservative nor liberal, I'm a "mix" I guess you could say. so I hardly agree with either side!).

Peace

No one on this planet is all good or all evil. Everyone of us is some combination of both.

We all do some things right and we do some things wrong. When we do good, we deserve praise and when we do bad, we deserve reproach.

Not all of us agree about which is which, which is why we should all be corresponding with our legislators frequently and why we should vote.

It is our civic duty to let our legislators know how we feel about their actions.

This resolution was not passed. As stated above, when announced by Rep. Abercrombie, Rep. Bachmann stated

Mr. Speaker? I object to the vote on the grounds that a quorum is not present and make a point of order that a quorum is not present


Quorum def.

The minimal number of officers and members of a committee or organization, usually a majority, who must be present for valid transaction of business.


and the motion was postponed

...and yet, they were all ELECTED into office to represent 100% of us. Did you forget to vote? Perhaps if you found something to do other than gear up for complaining about the Dems winning the white house - since you knew they were as soon as Palin opened her mouth - perhaps you could have made to the polls with all your other right wing fringe and voted some of these clowns out of there since you are so quick to point out how little they are approved of.

Hmmmmm... I wonder what percentage of Americans actually by into this birther crap. I guarantee you it wishes it were nearly as hi as 18%.

Get over this already. The debate is over. You guys lost the election and now you have lost this. Now you know how it feels, the only difference being that Obama did not need to steal the election or be appointed by the supreme court.

It is over. Sorry guys. In 2012 when we vote again for pres and Obama is still in office, you whip this gem back out and see if it helps republicans win back any thing. Please oh please do.

Until then, you all need to quit whining. If you believe he was not born here, go prove it. Do something about it. Or else, you will be whining throughout his entire presidency because this sure is not going to get him out of office.
