During the annual White House Correspondents Dinner, The President of The United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, made some jokes to the politicians media and celebrities in attendance.

Among those jokes was one about his birth origin.



"It's been quite a year,'' said Obama, making his second appearance at the correspondents' dinner. "Lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings, which have just gone down. But that's politics. It doesn't bother me. In fact, I know my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth.''



Of course we all know that in every joke is a little bit of truth. So what does this admission mean? Is it a red haring or is it the truth straight from the horses mouth?


The entire speech:

No Obama fan here. But anything said at these types of dinners shouldn't be taken seriously.

I assume you meant shouldn't be taken seriously. But like I said before, there is a little truth in every joke.

Thanks for the correction!

You are right though, good humor requires a little bit of truth for it to be effective.

Hate the man for his policies.

Hate the man for his car salesman smile.

But the Birth Place issue is dead.

Move on.

Right on! I mean, how much money does Obama have to spend to put this behind him? Give the guy a break. Right?

Yeah that's definitely similar to Bush joking about not finding the WMD in Iraq -- joking about genocide!

Ummm... Source?!

This would be a very interesting statement if true.

You can't just say that without intentionally trying to divide people.

The people that think he's legit will say obviously he's joking and poking fun at the 'fringe'' birthers'

And the people that are actually researching the suspicious man will say this is an admission of guilt...

So source would be nice.


edit to add: here is one story:LAt imes

You need to look up the definition of genocide. Invading another country does not constitute genocide.

Yeah Obama knows the truth and he is narcisstic enough to think he can get off by making a joke about it.

To the OP... are you sure your thread was titled correctly? Did you means horses mouth or the horses @$$?

If it is indeed dead, it continues to res-erect itself.
And it will not lay down, until fully disclosed.
It's kind of like JFK, 9/11 and UFO's. There IS something, but the
fog of plausible deniability is obscuring the truth.

Wish I could ask President Obama for his source that states....

This puke is laughing at American dupes and how easily they are duped. You have seen it here, they ignore the overwhelming evidence and just resort to name calling and ridicule. And we wonder why the country is circling the toilet bowl...

When I heard that joke, I thought "Okay, who will say this has some deep meaning to it?"

Then I thought "Where will I find someone who thinks this is a bombshell?"

Of course, I came to ATS and was not disappointed.

Seeing as how all of his jokes were written by the "Daily Show" writing staff, I'm not surprised by this crack at all. He never misses a chance to mock those who don't trust him or believe him.

He is just fanning the flames...and it worked

Anything goes at these events and nothing can be taken seriously of course because anything he says is an automatic mulligan.
