Bucco: I'm Not Sure Obama's an American

Says Corsi "birther" speech raised interesting points.

Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco told the Huffington Post he's not sure whether President Barack Obama really is a citizen, and that it's a matter the courts will have to decide.

Bucco, who represents the 25th Legislative District, was among the local Republican officials who attended .

"I haven't really dug down deep, there was some important points raised," Bucco told the Huffington Post.

He continued: "I am not in a position to say what [Corsi] put up on screen is demonstrative of evidence; that is for the court of law. This issue has not resolved itself. It won't until some higher authority is involved."

And Bucco's not the only local Republican who feels the issue is unresolved. Corsi's speech was brought about thanks to the efforts of Morris County Sheriff Ed Rochford, who attended as well.

"The easiest way to put this to rest is to have the records [such as Obama's school transcripts' unsealed," Rochford told the Huffington Post in an email. "Mr. Corsi made a very convincing argument that President Obama may not be a natural born citizen of the United States."

Dan, isn't that why Democrats lose election after election of which you're the poster child?

Jerry running for office is not something to be ashamed of. Win or lose and I have done both is an exercise in a process you may not be aware of. It is called democracy. How many ballots have you put your name on. If a candidate is a poster child then what exactly are the winners poster children of in Morris County? You really believe these are great public servants? They take money from developers and ppack their friends in jobs. The open Space fund is a rubber stamp slush fund for political pay offs. They keep themselves in office. That is all. You can see from these racist Birther rants that Republicanism in Morris County has become a religion and one that demands human sacrifice and it isn't Democrats that satisfy their blood lust, it is each other.

Exactly my sentiments. Who knew we had our very own Birther loon right here representing Morris County. If I could sell my house I'd move.

The issue is that we actually had one of the candidates in 2008 who wasn't technically born in the US, John McCain. No one asked to see his birth certificate or questioned his citizenship, yet Barak Obama has had to endure these charges. I also commend Bucco for his statements, even though I think he must have a screw loose to think Jerome Corsi, of all people, is making sense. Bucco's statements will be very valuable to his competition in his next election. Congrats on joining the ranks of Sheriff Joe Arpiao and Donald Trump.

I understand people want to create confusion amongst the voters. The problem I have with this news story is that there are other economic issues that we need to focus on. As a registered voter, I am tired of witnessing the dysfunction exhibited by our so called political leaders. Focus on what matters and things that can be changed. Whatever conspiracy theory you have about Obama's citizenship is irrelevant at this point and you can do nothing to change it. Let's focus on creating jobs and ways to make the economy stable.

It's just absurd that people are still entertaining this ridiculousness. There has yet to be any conclusive evidence presented which would call into question where he was born. If Bucco is so certain, why doesn't he specifically mention the evidence which he thinks results in his certainty.

Tony's a good man. It's sad to think he has to pander to the very worst elements of the Republican Party by even getting involved in this stupidity.

maybe you should learn how to spell verification. moron. obviously Obama is hiding his past, just as Holder is hiding the truth about Fast & Furious, New Black Panthers, etc etc etc. this is a very corrupt and dangerous administration.

Hey all Obama supporters. The fact is the issue was NEVER fully resolved & questions remain for many US citizens. Hey...I'd like to know the answer to how he was able to attend the muslim school in Indonesia if the law dictates only citizens & muslims are permitted. And if he was adopted by his step father. By doing so he would have to renounce his US citizenship. And how did he pay for college? Speculation is that he was admitted to Occidental as an international student. How about he puts the speculation to rest and provide answers & share his college transcripts. He is one fantasy story after another. How is it a Harvard law grad, consitutional law, stated on at least 3 occasions the US has 57 States? admits he's never had a job. requires the

I think it is so sad we don't question more public seevant = public employee....works for me, you etc. Are you sheep following the herder to utopia?
Hookerman April 20, 2012 at 12:21 PM
Obama did NOT attend a Muslim school in Indonesia... he attended a public school and a Catholic school. Stop reading your teaparty blogs, and learn the actual facts!
Hookerman April 20, 2012 at 12:23 PM
I guess we should as for Bucco's birth certificate then... just to be sure. I haven't seen it, have you???
Derek Barry Jones April 20, 2012 at 12:32 PM
Republicans with half a brain are screaming inside at this Monty Pythonesque none-sense and the embarrassment it is bringing to their party. The hole is getting deeper - dig on at your political peril .......

You know Tom, it's not hard to look this stuff up. Why don't you try doing a little research rather than trusting whatever right-wing blogs you frequent. The two schools Obama attended in Indonesia were Besuki Public School, and St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School.

H-man, Is that when Obama's daily diet was dog and grasshoppers? It's not my prerogative to prove out your argument...In the end, Obama's Birth certificate won't really matter because no judge is going to throw this country into a constitutional crisis. However, it sure is fun knowing that the liberal blogishere blows a gasket every time this subject comes up...As a whole, it's even more fun watching you Obama-bots cry because a few Morris County Republicans went to hear out the evidence Jerome Corsi presented...There must be something to the argument that Obama's birth certificate is a forgery because, "me thinks thou protests too.much."

Thomas Lotto doesn't know his Shakespeare. The quote is, "The lady doth protest too much, methinks." Perhaps that carelessness (ignorance?) explains his posting all his comments twice.
Thomas Lotito April 23, 2012 at 02:23 AM
Moira, methinks you lead an empty life, if all you can contribute to the conversation are personal insults...I know you read every thing I write.
Moira April 23, 2012 at 02:33 AM
At least this time you got the "methinks" right. The ego, well, that's inexplicable.
Thomas Lotito April 23, 2012 at 02:44 AM
I find it odd that you would waste so much time on me, talk about egos, you spelled my name wrong, which was in plain sight......think again before you embarrass your self trying to come off as some sort of intellect.
Moira April 23, 2012 at 02:56 AM
"i know you read everything I write." You "waste so much time on me." Can you spell "narcissist?"
Thomas Lotito April 23, 2012 at 03:08 AM
You're the one stalking me, are you some sort of a nut job? Go find someone else to annoy.
Moira April 23, 2012 at 03:16 AM
Stalking? Perhaps I should accuse you of the same. You've answered me as many times as I replied to you. You obviously don't know what stalking is and how serious it is.
Thomas Lotito April 23, 2012 at 03:29 AM
Go back and re-read your posts, you're the one answering me. Initially you responded and keep responding to me.
Moira April 23, 2012 at 03:36 AM
I answered you first, that is true. but didn't you want to be responded to? Isn't that why you posted your comment? Perhaps you wanted to be ignored. In which, I shall oblige you henceforth.
Thomas Lotito April 23, 2012 at 03:47 AM
You forgot the "and forevermore" part.
Moira April 23, 2012 at 03:54 AM
Touche.
