    Never cease to make me laugh at how much effort is being put into shutting down any debate over Obama's lack of eligibility to be our President.

    Just like Voter ID that one party goes nuts over not wanting....gee I can't imagine why.

    I totally disagree with the OP's link. The Birthers need to be front and center. They need to step up and LEAD the GOP this election cycle.

    I agree. Can you believe that Bush is in league with Obama?!?!?! Having his aides write such drivel! Sheesh! Don't they know the American public is fully enamored with conspiracy theories and cranks! We don't want to be talking about little things, like the economy for instance.

    That is similar to some responses I see posted in almost every birfer thread. It's the "I'm not a birther, but" crowd.

    That wishy-washy sect I think makes up a significant part of the GOP. They aren't attached to the issue like the USArmyLiars and bigredretards of the world. But apparently they have a seed of doubt as to his legitimacy, otherwise they wouldn't ask for further proof. And they offer up some facty-sounding things about Obama, followed by "I just think it's strange he hides it" or something to that effect.

    Recognize the use of the word "hide".

    I think this pseudo-non-birther crowd don't want to come front and center with their suspicions, because doing so carries with it the kook label. So they set it up under the guise of "putting the issue to rest". The problem is this won't BE "put to rest" until Obama is out of office, regardless of what he does or doesn't do to satiate the rabid horde of birfers.



    Imo the biggest irony in all this is that the birfer movement actually started with some hard-core Hillary supporters. :lol:

    I will give you some crafty political strategic advice - "not raising taxes" is a more winning proposition than "he's a Kenyan."
