WASHINGTON Six Texas congressmen are in the middle of a summertime political tempest sweeping the nation's capital over legislation to require future presidential candidates to show birth certificates to prove they are natural born citizens of the United States eligible to serve as president.

Here's my question: If there's nothing to this whole birth thing, why is everyone paying attention? Why aren't they just ignoring us?
The MSM...That’s why. The MSM is playing up this story to make us look bad. I’m am not arguing for or against the subject, but it sure makes us look bad as portrayed by the MSM.
Time to tell these arrogant Elitists to start packing.
Because they want you to look like fools — that’s why.
So demanding the transparency we were promised makes us idiots?
Boortz also refuses to discuss abortion and will not criticize the gay agenda. More libratarian than conservative. Swapped Celtic music for his show over two years ago after purchasing an IPOD.
You mean the BSM....The Brown Shirt Media.
Fortunately many of us left middle school behind long ago and don’t get our panties in a twist when the popular kids laugh at us.
All I continue to say is there is an easy way to force the issue without claiming Obama is inelligible for the office of POTUS.
Attack as follows. Start a not for profit website soliciting money to be donated to the Childrens ward in the Hospital that Obama was born (supposedly Kapiolani) and in the name of the one that birthed him.
Historical significance of honoring the birthing of the first black president and first president from the state of Hawaii.
When the WH refuses to give out something as simple as the birth doctors name and confirmation of the Hospital which all are available proven on the long version bc especially if the collected donation is rather large ...
It will force their hand and they will have to submit if not it could only mean that Obama hates sick children.
Yep. But the problem is, the media is picking off the fringes who have all kinds of different conspiracy theories, most of which will prove to be wrong to discredit the legitimate request for Obama's actual Birth Certificate.
It’s curious- this reaction from some on the right. They are naturally embarrassed but what’s disturbing is how few of them seem to have done any investigating or real digging.
I refer them all to Andy MCCarthy’s superb piece last week- where he clarifies it all- it’s not just about the COLB- it’s everything about the man- all those sealed and mysteriously unavailable records and documents.
As Clinton and Nixon discovered- it’s not the initial wrongdoing- it’s the coverup. Aren’t ANY of the people who are telling us to SHUT UP even a little bit curious about this man?
The media is playing up the 'birthers' because they want to make conservatives look like nuts and buffoons... the same reason they ignore the 9/11 truther types on the left -- they *don't* want the left to be perceived that way.
Now, as for the proposed law about candidates providing proof, that's just common sense. These legislators should not be tarred with the nutty birther brush.
Were the folks on the left idiots when they asked for the same from McCain? Or was he the idiot for providing proof of his eligility?
Bortz wants us to accept him, and not call him “crazy” even though the “Fair Tax” has very little chance of passing anything this century.
I give Bortz the benefit of the doubt, on that one. I think our efforts would be better spent, elsewhere, but it not my place to control the thoughts or desires of others.
I wish Bortz would show me the same respect.
After all, no harm comes from “full and fair disclosure” -—
If the MSM were doing its job, the “birther movement” would not be necessary.
I am not sure where Obama was born.
I am sure that Obama is hiding something.
Kind of like Boortz pointing at these congressmen wanting to patch a hole that leaves us open to a threat and talking about them as if they were idiots.
I’d like to hear Boortz (and all of congress) answer one simple question. “Would you ever be OK with a foreign born president?”. I think the answers would be quite telling.
Obama distanced himself from William Ayers and Rev. Wright, remember? And in most cases, Obama AGREED with the radicals in his past.
It has always bothered me that conservatives feel the need to distance themselves from conservatives that they do not agree with, 100%.
Rarely do you see anyone on the left trying to distance himself or herself from Maxine Waters or Rev. Sharpton or Al Gore.
So, what’s it to Boortz.
Some of us consider him an idiot.
Shoot, just answer the question which Hospital was Obama born at?
I would wager to bet that Obama has the most unknown past of any President ever. And some voices from our side say it's not important. Amazing!
