Obama Pres. of USA, Trump Mayor of Crazytown

Donald Trump, Republican presidential hopeful, went on a loopy-sounding tirade on Fox “News” this week accusing President Obama of being born outside the United States, an issue which has long since been resolved to all but the most paranoid or racist:

In response, I would offer Trump this detailed analysis of the birth certificate situati0n by Factcheck.com.  While Trump claims his suspicion stems from the fact that no one knew Obama as a child, Gov. Neil Abercrombie himself stated in January 2011:

It’s a matter of principle with me”….”I knew his mom and dad.  I was here when he was born. Anybody who wants to ask a question honestly could have had their answer already.”

On Tuesday, he again promised he would do “what I can do” to publicly verify that records show Obama was born in Hawaii and is a citizen of the United States, making him eligible to be President.

“You’re not going to convince those people because they have a political agenda, or they have minds that go in that kind of direction,” he told CNN. “Conspiratorial theorists are never going to be satisfied. This has gone into another area of political attack.”

The fact that we have the current equivalent of tinfoil hatters running seriously for president is wrong on several levels.  What is most wrong is the fact that many, if not most, reasonable conservatives and their elected officials know the birther movement is utterly ridiculous, but they say nothing for fear of losing those votes.  Principles, people – grow a pair.

    Ain’t it a hoot how the birthers would tolerate the questionable documentation surrounding Bush’s AWOL status while getting a deferment from Daddy’s friend in the state of Texas but they allow no wiggle room for Obama’s “long form” birth certificate. Tinfoil hatters indeed.

    I was just reading a blog about Bachmann’s iffy credentials (law degrees, etc) – I don’t know how much is true and how much is lefty tin hat material, but apparently there’s an Anderson Coper report involved…I need to remember to check this out later.

      Any Rep, either side, that does not know the Constitution should be thrown out of office….I remember her on Hardball when she said that Dems needed to be investigated as un-American….this person is the worst type of American…a dingbat!

        There may be more to this bat business than you think…and it may explain some other things too:

        Batmann!

    I real hope one of these retreads and blowhards runs for president, not because they have a chance of winning but because I like to see the train wreck that they will cause.

    Faux News Candidates:
    former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin ”The I graduated Early”,
    former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga. “The I Love The Interns”,
    former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee “The Huckster Reverend”,
    former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa. “The I Love the Gays”,
    former UN Ambassador John Bolton “The I Love The War ”

    I Finance Myself:
    real estate celebrity developer & 1999 US Prez. Candidate, Donald Trump, “I took my Casino into Bankruptcy, just imagine where I can Take the US”
    former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney “The Flip-Flopping Fudger”,
    former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush “The I Am Not My “Dumb Ass” Brother”,

    Employed Long Shots:
    Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. “The History, I Don’t Need No Stink’n History”,
    Mississippi Gov./ former tobacco lobbyist, Haley Barbour “The last White Hope”
