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.
