Skip to comments.Rove and O'Reilly equate "birthers" with "truthers" (ho-hum vanity)
Posted on 02/16/2011 6:17:43 PM PST by Seizethecarp
O'Reilly began a segment tonight by saying that he did not believe the recent poll that showed that 51% of likely GOP primary voters didn't believe that Obama was born in HI. He offered up a different poll showing that 58% of Americans believed Obama was born in HI.
Rove came on and after admitting that Obama could end the birth certificate controversy immediately by simply releasing his birth records, Rove said the controversy benefited Obama.
Then both O'Reilly and Rove equated "birthers" with "truthers" and Ron Paul supporters and said they were on the Tea Party and GOP fringe.
When Rove said he was satisfied that Obama was born in HI and started to refer to the newspaper birth announcements, O'Reilly butted in and said (IIRC) "You got that from me. We broke that here first. We investigated that."
More desperate efforts to contain the “birther” story.
73% of Repubs either ‘don’t believe’ or ‘aren’t sure.’
That’s a big friggin “fringe.”
It is getting to the point where the “Truthers” are the pathetic clingers on to the big lie that Obama was even eligible to run for president.
I wonder if somebody has gotten to them.
Soro$ depo$iting ca$h into their private $wiss accountS?
why doesnt chicken sheet oreilly have a real birther on the factless show to debate? Bring on Orly Taitz, Alan Keyes,
jerome corsi etc
Not only is it in circulation, but it is revived thanks to the bumbling Gov. Ambercrombie.

They both get leg-tingles like little Chrissy.
I expect no less from Ted Baxter and Tokyo Rove. If they can’t get Myth and Jeb in there, better Obama than Sarah.
Was his last book “Harvard Snots and Pin Heads” ?
O’Reilly got a 1 billion viewer audience for his Super Bowl interview with Obama and want his program to be a “safe zone” for Obama on the “birther” issue.
But O’Reilly’s no-spin claim is now tattered by his own spin claiming that the birth certificate issue “doesn't matter”.
I think he got a bit of mail from viewers after he made that claim earlier this week.
Why is he always talking about it if he doesn’t think Americans think there’s a controversy with Obama’s birth?
That's what I thought I heard. It looks like BOR is going to have a daily attack on people who don't believe Obama's BS nativity story without any rational debate.
Cashill’s new book really has a lot of people agitated.
Cashill’s new book and Corsi’s new book, too!
There is an incestuous relationship between the Ivy League particularly Harvard grads with the main stream media and the people who control the Federal government.
I agree with pretty much everything you said.
Both parties suck!
O’Reilly sucks too!
And so does Rove! Big time!
Boob and Boob’s opinion mean nothing to me any more.
Gregory and Matthews got BORing and Rove to do their bidding and they think that the MSM 0b0z0ids will love them as reasonable pundits with GRAVITAS!
I think gravitass is more like it!
It is incumbent upon the person who runs for President to pass muster. . .He needs to prove his eligibility, not us.
No. As Fred Nerks posted on FR on July 02, 2009,
Texas Darlin posted about these announcement back in July 2008. Here note about the announcement:O'Fatty's such a numb-nutz blowhard.
*The birth announcement was tracked down by Lori Starfelt, the producer of a documentary that PUMA is working on. READ the comments below for in-depth explanations from Lori about the announcement.
This is what happens when the liberal media is in charge and refutes any examination of evidence. Too bad, we no longer have an investigative arm that is non-government. Seems that FOX is joining the fray...
“Birthers” have been presented with no hard evidence to contradict their beliefs, or dispel their doubts — even though that evidence is readily available to Obama.
Heard an interesting theory on the Medved show this afternoon. The reason there is no birth certificate in Hawaii is that he was born in Seattle. It is hidden because his backstory is a fantasy. His mother and father were never married, and the only relationship was between the sheets. The whole “Dreams of My Father” is all BS. His father just knocked up his mother and that is all there is to it.
As though we all watched his birth on live TV, but some of us think it was faked.
they are counting on us having short memories, aren’t they?
(Just what did factcheck validate? Electronic images sent by e-mail to two websites by anonymous posters? And the texasdarlin entry that speaks of Lori Starfelt has gone...!)
BOR needs access to the Obama Administration.. he has to use every opportunity to kowtow to Obama and "keep on truckling" for the sake of his business.
Despite his laughable "no spin" claim he is a whirling dervish of vigorous chanting and ecstatic devotion to his business and his ruling class friends.
I am sure BOR liked this little plea in song from a Beetle back in the VN war days, for this "birther" it don't get no simpler..
All we are saying♩♪♫
is give release a chance♩♪♫
I got that — your intent was quite clear. I was just trying to add a couple of points to your list. I probably should have mentioned that.
Two obnoxious people!
I agree with you. I think this issue accentuates the dishonesty of Obama and the Democrates, and it drives everyday people to the poles.
We don’t want dishonesty in government. We want the truth and real transparency.
Are wonderful friends at Fol Al Waleed Bin Tal. F Them. They are as bad as the rest. O’Reilly is a pervert and Beck said that he personally had a porn addiction and is a friend of Bill W. These two are real gems.
An author on Medved stated that we know more about the first two years in George Washington’s life then we do about Barak Obama’s first two years.
Prince Al Waleed Bin Tal is their boss at Fox News. He aka Saudi Arabia is the largest individual shariaholder in News Corp, #2 in Disney/ABC and a major one in TW/CNN and GE/MSNBC/CNBC/MSNBC.
Of course these little puppets with dubious pasts are being told what to say. The Saudis paid good money for the white hut to get their muslim in there.
Two RINO’s sitting in a tree k-i-s-s-i-n-g!
Stop watching O’Reilly. He has sold us out one too many times. When you start trading the truth for an Obama interview you are no longer a reliable source of information. Life is short - don’t waste any more of yours on this jerk.

I emailed O’Reilly after his melt-down a few nights ago. I mentioned Corsi’s forthcoming book by title and challenged him to read it and then have Corsi on for some Q & A.
Let’s see what happens when Corsi’s book, “Where’s The Birth Certificate?” hits the “New York Slimes” Best Seller List.
What sorry combo.
I pray we're not too late to stop them.
Why doesn’t BOR simply show us all the proof he has, instead of just talking about it. Let him lay it all on the table and step by step show his evidence.
Maybe he could write a book about it and then he’d talk about ‘my book’ during every show!!! And he’d end every show with letters from readers saying how great his ‘book’ is!
I agree with O and Rove in this case. With all due respect to my freeper friends who are “birthers”,I find it kind of embarrassing. That said, I had originally thought that this issue was going to work against Conservatives and Republicans, but it looks like it might not. In fact, it may work for them. Who knows, they may be right all along (birthers), in which case, I will eat a large plate of Crow. So while I disagree with the birthers, I wont stoop to ridicule them or question their intelligence, just a difference of opinion.
Ok, so I didn’t bother to read the article before posting. O and Rove are jackasses, and there is a WORLD of difference between being a birther and a truther.. sheesh...
