In the July 13th press briefing, Robert Gibbs admitted that he knew the COLB that barry has posted on the internet is not a birth certificate even though he said on May 27th that it was.
GIBBS: Are you looking for the President’s birth certificate?
GIBBS: It’s on the Internet, Lester.
KINGSOLVING: No, no, no — the long form listing his hospital and physician.
GIBBS: Lester, this question in many ways continues to astound me. The state of Hawaii provided a copy with the seal of the President’s birth.
GIBBS: I will seek to interview whoever brought the President into this world. But can we just — I want to do this once and for all, Lester. Let’s just do this once and for all. You can go on this — I hope you’ll take the time not just to Google “President, January 24, Hawaii hospital, birth” and come up with this letter, but go on the Internet and get the birth certificate, Lester, and put –
KINGSOLVING: It’s not a birth certificate.
GIBBS: I know.
And at the end of the press conference Gibbs said this:
GIBBS: You know, I — ohhh. Les, we were — I haven’t the slightest idea what the invitation system is for the July 4th fireworks. I’ll do this. I’ll figure that out. You figure out the Hawaii birth certificate. We’ll meet here sometime next week and we can discuss it all over again. How about that, Lester?
Well, it’s been a week and has Lester asked anything more?
Here’s today’s exchange.
KINGSOLVING: Robert, just two questions?
GIBBS: I thought we were going to do yours at 4:00 p.m. today, Lester. Go ahead.
KINGSOLVING: Oh, Robert.
GIBBS: I know, I’m going to skip you for right now, Lester, I know.
KINGSOLVING: You’ll be back?
GIBBS: Do you have your birth certificate with you, can you — go ahead — (laughter.) You do?
KINGSOLVING: I’m not going to ask about that.
GIBBS: We’ll save that for next week.
Anyone else getting the impression WND would rather keep the controversy alive so they can keep up the traffic on their site and get more contributions?
