Obama Swiftboater Proudly Declares: “I’m A Birther”
An anti-Obama group called OPSEC, founded by a former Navy SEAL, is trying to swiftboat President Obama by claiming he didn’t have much to do with killing bin Laden. Another group of former SEALS, Special Operations Speaks (SOS) is dedicated to convincing voters that the president hates the military. Its founder, Larry Bailey, is proud to say he’s a birther.
“I have to admit that I’m a Birther,” said SOS founder Larry Bailey, a retired 27-year veteran of the Navy SEALs, in an interview. “If there were a jury of 12 good men and women and the evidence were placed before them, there would be absolutely no question Barack Obama was not born where he said he was and is not who he says he is.”
Bailey, who is part of a the leadership of SOS’s effort to mobilize thousands to take to the streets to denounce Obama’s treatment of the military through an SOS project called Operation Street Corner, doesn’t only believe that the president is a foreigner. He also believes that he is not actually the son of Barack Obama, Sr. Bailey trumpeted the conspiracy theory that the president is actually the love child of Ann Dunham and writer Frank Marshall Davis.
Bailey’s distaste for the president is personal:
Barack Obama’s a born red-diaper baby. He’s a socialist. His beliefs are the very antithesis of my beliefs. As far as I am concerned he is one of the most unlikeable and unprepared politicians we’ve ever had,” Bailey said.
