The 2012 presidential campaign opens today in Honolulu, where the first convention focused on neutralizing and defeating President Barack Obama for reelection holds its opening session. Obamacon 2012 starts an eight-day run in Honolulu. Obamacon 2012 is a convention of “birthers,” “doubters,” Tea Party activists and Obama opponents who are coming together to create a “fusion” strategy for the defeat of President Obama in 2012. A boycott of Hawai’i tourism is also being continued to punish state officials for concealing Obama’s records. Obama’s inability in India to define why Islamic “jihad” extremists pose a threat to the United States has helped generate last-minute interest in Obamacon 2012.

“Fusion” of Tea Party and “Birthers” flexes its muscles in Honolulu as Obama gallivants across Asia and the Pacific
(HONOLULU)(November 9, 2010) Obama adversary Andy Martin will gavel Obamacon 2012 to order today in Honolulu, the first convention organized around plans to defeat Barack Obama for reelection in 2012. Martin will also be renewing his call for a tourist boycott of Hawai’i: see www.BoycottHawaii.com.
“While Obama is criss-crossing the Pacific and Asia, Obamacon 2012 is pursuing him in a Pacific ‘duel’ between Obama and America,” Executive Director Andy Martin says.
“We have an exciting agenda planned for Honolulu starting today and we expect to lead the effort to defeat Obama until a formal Republican opponent is chosen in 2012.
“In 2004 I launched what is now one of the most formidable, if informal, political movements in American history. Although the media derisively call us ‘Birthers,’ we are concerned with much more than Obama’s uncertain birth and family history. Nevertheless, I accept the term ‘Birther’ because it is simple, direct and immediate. I am more accurately described as a ‘Doubter.’ ‘Birthers’ are really ‘Doubters:’ Who is this masked man that refuses to disclose official documents, college records or confirmation of his religious conversion? People have doubts about Obama.
“Even Bill O’Reilly, who has been dismissive in the past about questions involving Obama’s origins, is now harping on Obama’s inscrutability.
“In 2008 Republican Party leaders were afraid to confront ‘Birther/Doubter’ questions about Obama; they lost the election. If Republicans avoid the ‘Birther/Doubter’ movement in 2012 they will lose again. I am working to see that issues about Obama’s character and history are presented in a reasonable and coherent manner during the 2012 presidential election.
“We are welcoming Obama’s Tea Party opponents and observers to the convention. We are a ‘fusion’ movement.
“For myself, I continue to believe Obama was born in Hawai’i. But he is concealing the full information contained on his original 1961 typewritten birth certificate. Why? His secrecy fuels endless speculation. It is time for Obama to tell the truth to the American people and time for Hawaii officials to release the original, typewritten birth certificate. Obama should also authorize the release of his college and law school files, as well as his Trinity United Church records.
“Because Obama has not been candid about his past, nearly 100 million Americans now doubt Obama’s origins. That is an extraordinary number. There is nothing like the Birther/Doubter movement in prior presidential history. As I predicted, ‘character’ issues about Obama that were ignored in 2008 are coming back to life for 2012.
“When 100 million Americans doubt who you are and where you came from, that's not a laughing matter for the president. Or for the United States. When many Indonesians believe Obama himself is Indonesian, we have a foreign policy predicament.
“There is no doubt that the ‘Birther/Doubter’ movement played a significant backstage role in Obama’s congressional walloping earlier this week. ‘Worries’ about Obama involve questions and doubts about his authenticity, loyalty and origins. While these voter concerns are largely unspoken, these subvocal ‘doubts’ are increasingly driving voter perceptions and concerns about Obama. ‘Character’ questions are the proverbial ‘elephant in the room’ which Republican leaders ignore at their peril.
“Please donate if you can’t attend:
“We need contributions to help support and grow the movement. We do more with less than any other national political operation. Please help us. We can’t defeat Obama with hot air; we need cold cash. You can contribute online or by sending a check to our New York mailing address (See www.StopObamaCoalition.com or www.CommitteeofOneMilliontoDefeatBarackObama.com to contribute online or mail us a contribution.)
“America is endangered every day that Barack Obama remains in the White House. “A president that cannot accept that ‘jihad’ extremists pose a threat to world peace is not the right leader for America. I was right about Obama in 2008, and I will be right about him again in 2012. Obama must be defeated.”
