President Obama and Numbergate


Recommended Posts

American Thinker:

Jack Cashill recently detailed what Susan Daniels, a private investigator, has learned about Mr. Obama's Social Security Number. In a nutshell, the president's SSN was issued in 1977 with a Connecticut Area Number (first 3 digits).

Here's what the SS official web site says, in relevant part:

The Area Number [first 3 digits] is assigned by the geographical region. Prior to 1972, cards were issued in local Social Security offices around the country and the Area Number represented the State in which the card was issued. This did not necessarily have to be the State where the applicant lived, since a person could apply for their card in any Social Security office. Since 1972, when SSA began assigning SSNs and issuing cards centrally from Baltimore, the area number assigned has been based on the ZIP code in the mailing address provided on the application for the original Social Security card. The applicant's mailing address does not have to be the same as their place of residence. Thus, the Area Number does not necessarily represent the State of residence of the applicant, either prior to 1972 or since.

One must wonder if the above was written or revised in the last three years in the wake of inquiries about Mr. Obama's SSN to draw a red herring across the trail.

But what if the Obamaites are setting us up for another sucker punch? Their handling of the birth certificate was masterful: the PDF posted mollified all the MSM pundits, who immediately pronounced the matter put to rest, while the artifacts in the PDF allow the matter to stay open, with attendant finger-pointing and laughter from the brilliant Obamaites at the uncouth, unreasonable, unstoppable birthers, who will accept no proof.

So let's take a quick look at what has the left said about the SSN. I donned my bunny suit for entry into a toxic waste site, Huffington Post, and searched on "obama social security number," which led to a blog by one Jason Linkins, who thought all the refutation needed was provided by "the good folks at The Week," who in turn thought the last word on the subject came from one Carole Bengle Gilbert at Associated Content:snip
