So the birther movement truly seems to be growing. Made its way to a discussion in my office today. Now seeing it seeping into non-political sites I frequent. Anyway, here’s an interesting take on the paranoia that is infesting the Frightwing (Republican) party:
Also, a short video that should (that’s *should*) end the debate – but we know that’s a pipe dream.
Here’s a response I got on another forum:
Wrong. There were a soldier who objected to his deployment on the birther issue. The military canceled his order as his status gave the soldier the option based on his particular reservist status. There being no remaining controversy, the court dismissed the soldier’s lawsuit as being moot. Here’s a cite: http://www.ledger-enquirer.com/news/story/777472.html
Anyway, people smarter than me have debunked this whole birther stuff. Courts have routinely rejected these claims using charged words such as “frivolous” (the nuclear bomb word in a Judge’s arsenal). Read here if you choose:
This is the good stuff – from the Factcheck link above:
In fact, the conspiracy would need to be even deeper than our colleagues realized. In late July, a researcher looking to dig up dirt on Obama instead found a birth announcement that had been published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Sunday, Aug. 13, 1961:
Of course, it’s distantly possible that Obama’s grandparents may have planted the announcement just in case their grandson needed to prove his U.S. citizenship in order to run for president someday. We suggest that those who choose to go down that path should first equip themselves with a high-quality tinfoil hat. The evidence is clear: Barack Obama was born in the U.S.A.
And the GOP is wondering where all the moderates went… Sheesh!
