Skip to comments.Republicans: Put a stake through the heart of the birther movement now (the Flop Sweat intensifies)
Posted on 07/24/2009 8:11:57 PM PDT by pissant
n case you don't watch cable news (an excellent idea), you might have missed the explosion of stories on the birthers, those folks who are determined that Barack Obama can't be president because there's a massive commie conspiracy involving his birth certificate. Somehow very respected conservatives have decided to throw in their lot with them.
These people are nuts. If Republicans want to be a national party and not a repository for wingnut conspiracy theorists angry about everything, they will loudly denounce the birthers and move on. Say, with actual health care, climate change and economic proposals.
Here's a quick roundup of the insanity. Feel free to post more in ye olde comments (which also tends to be a repository for wingnuts):
Poor U.S. Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.), who would make a great senator.
There is an actual birther bill in Congress with something like 10 sponsors.
Liz Cheney stokes the flames.
Convicted felon G. Gordon Liddy is somehow still treated with credibility.
Let's overthrow the government because our guy lost.
Count the alleged Holocaust Museum killer as a member.
Fox News gives them credibility.
Lou Dobbs dons his best tin-foil hat.
Even Wikipedia is against them. (They're all against you).
Thank God for Jon Stewart.

She certainly lives up to her name.
Sure seems so.
Of course our elitist RINO buttwipes want to put a stake in it. THEY could have demanded Obama prove his eligibility and refused to do so. Ergo, the are aiding and abetting this treasonous fraud.
When he ultimately goes down I want them to go down with him!
Obama could do it in five minutes if he wanted to. All he has to do is release his long form birth certificate, and it all goes away instantly.
How hard is that?
I wouldn’t give that site a hit. It’s one thing to object to the ‘birther’ movement but another to write total drivel (poorly).
Thank you, Ms. Dumbass, for your keen interest in the welfare of President Soetro’s political opposition.
Her name can’t really be Susan Dumass??? It’s just way too perfect!
You said — Obama could do it in five minutes if he wanted to. All he has to do is release his long form birth certificate, and it all goes away instantly.
I have said elsewhere that Im detecting a change in strategy and that the leftists are actually co-opting this issue for themselves and finding it useful to derail conservatives. Ive noticed this just recently.
This is what I said in another post...
Yes, it does appear to be a change in strategy and I noted that it was a change elsewhere. It seems to be a developing strategy actually. You know how some things work... you gradually come upon them or you stumble upon them. I think it may be that way with this, more recently.
I wrote the following elsewhere..., in a thread in which an article was trying to tag someone with this label of being a birther, while they were actually trying to distance themselves from it. It was like the article was using the birther designation to sidetrack the real issues that were being spoken about, by this conservative.
So, the comment I said elsewhere...
The leftists dont want the issue to go away. Its too useful to them. I posted the following in another thread about what someone said is panic setting in. What I see, instead, is a strategy developing by the leftists...
Well, heres how it would work..., if youre a conservative and you have ever said anything about the birth certificate issue, those leftists are going to know about it. And then, lets say youre giving some reasoned points on some legislation being pushed by Obama...
If it starts sounding too good or they cant counter it then its time to shift over to the Obama birth certificate issue and the leftists will be the ones who raise it.
Then they try to paint that person *as* one of those who believes that Obama is not qualified to be President, because he has not shown a proper birth certificate.
At that point, theyve just gotten you off your points in regards to Obamas legislation that youre trying to get out to the public and over into whether you think that Obama is qualified to be President or not.
The public sees and hears this, they forget all about the points you were making on the legislation that Obama is pushing and now the public thinks the whole issue was about whether Obama is qualified to be President or not.
The leftists love to get the conservatives over into that topic, because it means that this particular conservative cant talk about the legislation that he originally wanted to talk about.
Thats how it works...
And thats why the leftists are loving the Obama Birth Certificate Issue as a good issue for them to beat on and divert any conversation away from something else.
I think the birther issue is going to be useful to them...
As I said, this appears to be a developing strategy right now... (i.e, just recently)
If the birthers are nuts, then why is ozero spending a huge pile of cash to keep ALL his records sealed? Sounds like the birthers are getting to the ozero types. Keep it up.
Yet another in a l o n g string of left wing idiots trying to run the Republican party!
Wow! The louder they whine.......
The RINOs are the ones that need their own political party. Symbol is a dog rolling over and exposing its underbelly.
I’ve been astounded by the deep concern that all the lefties - from Media Matters to CNN to MSLSD - has these days for the well being of the Republican party. Kinda funny.
I'm thinking that it has to be Dumas. No one would go through life with such a demeaning name as Dumass.
There are far greater threats that the Obama presidency is doing to America than to worry about this. They are about to create a welfare monstrosity out of health care that cannot be unwound, they are taking over the major industries and defining national levels of compensation, they have begun a cannibalistic class war promising the rich will pay for all things and promising no tax accountability for 50% of the country, they have put a psycho “national sterilizer” in as the science CZAR, they are installing a wise latina racist supremacist as a Justice of the Supreme Court that blatantly and proudly discriminates against white males, they are passing a trillion dollar cap and trade debacle that will makes slaves of us, they are promoting the idea that we should pay for China and India’s CO2 emissions, they are apologizing for imagined US crimes like global warming, they have taken bribe money from convicted felons like Tony Reszko, they want our tax dollars to cover people’s elective contraceptive abortions and the list goes on and on.
There are far worse things that must be attacked because they will be impossible to undo.
