>>Plane flying banner over Romney/Ryan rally in Ohio: “AMERICA IS BETTER THEN BIRTHERISM.”<<

Undecideds thinking: “Huh, what’s “birtherism” and then going to the internet.

Should have used “than” instead of “then” in the banner.

Why is this in “Breaking News”?

Obama has a stupid banner: “America is Better than Birtherism” — that’s in the picture to which you linked. It’s a criticism of Romney making a joke about nobody asking him to see his birthcertificate, because everyone KNOWS where he was born.

The Obama campaign is upset, claims it’s a hint at Obama’s birthcertificate — they are grasping at straws, trying to attack Romney, anything to distract from his record of failure.

Than refers back to what came before it, then refers to what comes after.

‘First thunder, then lightning.’

Never...’First thunder, than lightning.’

One is stupid, the other makes sense.

They need to add a comma to make it more confusing.

America is too good for Obama... or if composed by the “author” of the banner: America is more gooder then Obama.

O the original birther. 1991 supplied to his literary agent, used for years & years . . . born in Kenya raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. Why was it not a problem for over ten plus years? Turn it right back on them.

Looking at that banner I’d say the author dropped out in 2nd grade.

Ted Kennedy used to joke about Chappaquiddick...why shouldn't Osama Obama joke about his BC??

BTW,if you want proof about my Kennedy claim just ask...I'll re-post a link I provided a couple of weeks ago which provides proof.

You can move thunder/lightning around, that doesn’t change the fact that you can’t exchange then for than.

If you use then rather than than, then than must not then be correct.

First he can't spell OHIO. Now he doesn't know the difference between the comparative word 'than' and the serial one 'then'.

.....but he's a Harvard law professor!

Half of our recent high school graduates don’t know the difference between than and then.

Obama says then frequently when he should say than.

This is a perfect time for Romney to double down and mock 0 with a spoof coffee cup in the same format as 0baMao’,s or use one of 0’s actual cups at his next speech.... or maybe it would be more effective with Ryan doing it. right out of the Alinsky plahybook. Rule #5

“RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)”

In fact he should give out a few hundred cups at the next rally and shut down the fake umbrage.

I don’t need any proof. I believe you. These people have no shame. And in some respects, they do this as a defense mechanism. The best way to neutralize the BC issue is to ridicule those who seek answers and call them birthers similar to the way skeptics of manmade global warming aka climate change, are called deniers.

Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" #5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon."

Doesn't matter if the ridicule is based on a lie. As Marshall McLuhan would say, "The medium (ridicule) is the message."
