Anderson Cooper 'promotes' Obama eligibility question

Commentator Anderson Cooper of CNN has taken time during his important broadcast schedule to publicize the WND banner that flew over an NFL stadium in Texas last weekend asking, “Where’s The Real Birth Certificate?”

And he suggested that his viewers go to the WND Superstore to buy yard signs asking the question.

Of course the comments were made in sarcasm, as the banner was the subject of his “Ridiculist” commentary. But his comments proved the banner’s effectiveness, as he was exposing it to at least his audience numbers.

He called the banner that was flown before last weekend’s NFL matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants the “banner to nowhere,” citing the closed roof of the domed stadium. He wondered just how people were supposed to see it.

He didn’t mention that the roof of the dome typically is open during the pregame time period when the banner flew, and even as it closed, those fans presumably walked from the vehicles in the parking to the stadium before the game when the banner was flying.

His comments:

Cooper called WND’s banner “about the spin.”

“I’d go so far as to say WND has more spin than a club DJ reading Spin magazine while sitting on a washing machine .. and the DJ also just got back from his spin class. I just thought of that one,” he said.

He said the banner was available mostly to “passed-out tail-gating stragglers in a mostly empty stadium parking lot.”

And he suggested, “Just as a public service in case you want to be involved in supporting this kind of high-flying effort in futility, maybe hop on over to the WND Superstore and buy one of their ‘Where’s the Birth Certificate?’ yard signs.”

Joseph Farah, WND CEO, noted that while CNN was lamenting the fact that the video was of a banner to “nowhere” and it was a waste of money to fly banners no one would see, CNN was, in fact, publicizing that video, and putting it before viewers.

“Isn’t that funny – as CNN airs video footage of the stunt! I know CNN’s ratings are hurting, too, but Cooper provided a virtual infomercial – including pitching ‘Where’s the real birth certificate?’ yard signs on sale in the WND Superstore,” Farah, who originated the banner idea, said.

The banner contained a special message for the man who calls himself president of the United States.

The banner was originally set to fly above the same stadium during the Cowboys’ annual Thanksgiving Day game, but had to be postponed due to inclement weather.

“This flyover is another manifestation of our national billboard campaign that began three years ago, asking simply, ‘Where’s the birth certificate?’” explained Darah, founder of WND. “The question today is, ‘Where’s the REAL birth certificate?’ since Jerome Corsi’s new e-book on the subject completely discredits its validity. We have used billboards because the rest of the media refuses to address seriously the problems of Obama’s eligibility. And we will continue to use other creative efforts to address one of the most serious constitutional questions facing our country, namely, ‘Is Obama actually eligible for office?’”

This is not the first time the question surrounding Obama’s constitutional eligibility for office has hit the friendly skies.

At the September CNN-Tea Party GOP debate in Tampa, Fla., the question starred – on a flying billboard.

The flying billboard immediately grabbed the attention of the Miami Herald,
which wrote, “Jobs, schmobs. The WorldNetDaily website, which hypes the
Obama-is-not-a-US-citizen line, is flying a banner around the site of
the CNN Republican presidential debate to keep the story alive: Where is
the real birth certificate?”

“Countless document experts have now made the persuasive case
that the birth certificate released by Obama is fraudulent – a case that
has been well-chronicled in WND,” said Farah. “No other media outlet
has bothered to examine the document or question its authenticity.
Neither have they found any experts willing to suggest the birth
certificate is valid. That’s why I am taking this case directly to the
American people,” he said.

Donald Trump, the high profile mega-millionaire, also repeatedly has questioned Obama’s qualifications, starting off several months ago.

He repeated his stance just recently on the CNN Piers Morgan show when he was confronted with the challenge, “Do you accept what he produced as valid?”

The question was about the image of a Hawaiian “Certificate of
Live Birth” that was released by the White House in April, a document
that imaging experts have stated on the record they doubt is real.

Trump, who in April claimed credit for creating the circumstances
that prompted Obama to release the “Certificate” image, was blunt.

“No, I don’t necessarily accept it,” he said.

“Do you believe he was probably born in America?” Morgan pressed.

“He might have been,” Trump said.

“What does your gut tell you, because you are a smart guy,” Morgan continued.

“My gut tells me couple things. No. 1, you know, it took a long
time to produce this certificate, and when it came out, as you know,
check out the Internet, many people say it is not real, you know, that
it’s a forgery,” Trump said. “They go over it, and lots of different
things and lots of different reasons.”

He continued, “The other thing is, nobody has been able to see,
you know, the day of his birth, they had twins born, they had another
one born. Nobody has been able to find any records that he was born in
that hospital.”
