WASHINGTON — The false allegation that President Barack Obama was born in another country is more than a fact-free hit job.
Marked by accusations and backstabbing, it's the story of how a small but intense movement called "birthers" rose from a handful of people prone to seeing conspiracies, aided by the Internet, magnified without evidence by eager radio and cable TV hosts, and eventually ratified by a small group of Republican politicians working to keep the story alive on the floors of Congress and the campaign trails of the Midwest.

Rush just brought up the birth certificate issue and not as a joke as he had done before!
Yup, we’re crazy. Now where’s the Birth certificate?
So Obama’s opposition demanding the transparency he promised is nuts but his supporters forgiving that lie is OK?
More alinsky smears from the left if you ask me.
The bigger question should be why isn’t 0bama spending $15 and some first class postage to end this once and for all?
Why is all of his records sealed?
He’s smart enough to let others take the flak on this until the target is clearly in sight.
“Rush just brought up the birth certificate issue and not as a joke as he had done before!”
Really, I don’t get his broadcasts here. What did he say in summary?
Now, why do you suppose a hard-hitting investigative reporter would fail to follow up on this little nugget of information?
Well I’m a proud midwestern nut.
What’s next, trials for treason?
See how they say “false”? Prove that it is false. Open up all of those records.
He was speaking about Andy McCarthy.
Someone that is well informed on this topic informed me of the following.
“Rush is buds with Andy McCarthy, who wrote an in depth piece on it yesterday for Nat. Review. Rebutting the weak crap that Lowry & Co. put out the day prior.”
Just reading “Road to Serfdom” (again).
In a totalitarian collectivist system, it is (and has been) considered treasonous to question the success or probability of success of any of the “planners’” programs & policies.
Not far off. Happens every time.
“Whats next, trials for treason?”
Trial for Treason?
You => No
The “ONE” => Could be.
I surprised that it wasn’t Yael Abu [insert throat clearing sound] halka.
It’s like feeding fish. Posting and re-posting articles to see the frenzy on FR.
The Birthers should actually be called Barrys Biography Brigade. Why? because the state-run media, the RNC, the DNC, and popular Presidential biographers (like maybe Doris Kearns-Goodwin or Douglas Brinkley) lacked the intellectual curiosity to investigate or vet the obscured life of The One. Burf records are only one concern. Most of the obfuscation is NOT complex - but simply slight of hand. The BBBs are smart - they can multitask and go after ALL aspects of the New Poseur (Swiftboaters turned Burfboaters?).
On October 1, 2008 I broke my 25 year subscription to the Kansas City Falling Star Newspaper.
The Falling Star only prints the lefts propaganda.
For the most part Rush has dedicated far, far, far too little time and has been far, far, far too late on Obama’s eligibility to do much good. He has done just enough, so when Obama is proven to be a fraud, and his listeners are justifiably **furious** and **disgusted** with him, he can say, “Play the tape! See! I did talk about it.!”
Unless Rush seriously repents I stand by opinion of him. He is a big, fat, loud mouth of a **weenie** and has the gonads of a dust mite!
One more thing!
I am sick of Rush's use of the word “radical leftist”! Rush is a gifted communicator and has the talent and means to educate his listeners. The correct term is **MARXISTS**or **COMMUNISTS** and in many ways they are **FASCISTS**! What we are deal with is a world wide, and highly dangerous philosophical communist movement! Calling them “radical leftists” makes them sound as harmless as a Norwegian!
( My apologies to Norwegians.)
Kim Jong Il was born while his parents were in exile in Russia. North Korean schoolchildren learn that Dear Leader was born on a sacred mountain in North Korea.
Sound like our schools and media?
