Wehner joins Rove and all of the usual suspects in an histrionic wail about all the damage that will follow such questioning, and how "irresponsible" it is.
The fact that all of these people are so afraid is the most convincing evidence that there's something to all of this. WHY ARE THEY SO AFRAID? WHAT ARE THEY AFRAID OF, EXACTLY? AND WHY ARE "RESPONSIBLE REPUBLICANS" LEADING THE CHARGE???
The elites against the people. Nothing more, nothing less.
HILLARY CLINTON STARTED THE WHOLE THING SO SHE IS THE LEADING NUT JOB WHY DONT WE HEAR THAT?
“WHY ARE THEY SO AFRAID? WHAT ARE THEY AFRAID OF, EXACTLY? AND WHY ARE “RESPONSIBLE REPUBLICANS” LEADING THE CHARGE??”
Because they want to shove Mittens down our throats, IMO.
A couple months ago, some pol-pundit “prophesied” that the GOP nominee would be a “dark horse who came out of nowhere”.
Responsible Republicans need to re-frame it as “why does this man work so hard to hide his past?”
Trump has only said that something fishy is going on in regard to Obama's birth certificate-- and that is undeniable to anyone who is paying attention (even Chris Matthews). Trump has NOT said that Obama was born abroad-- because he, like most of us, simply don't know the truth.
I am like Trump here. I wanted to dismiss the "birthers," but facts are stubborn things. Something is rotten in the State of Hawaii.
Obamas failure to prove his eligibity is what helped Trump when he grabbed the issue and ran with it because other possible candidates ignored it until he started running with it.
The question should not be why is Trump running with it, the question should be why did Boehner and the Republican controlled Congress drop the ball and allow for Trump to pick it up?
You know, we voted in 2010 and we won Congress. Boehner could call for hearings on this just like the democrats ordered hearings on McCains eligibility (for having been born in Panama on a US Military base). I dont think we can blame the American people or Republicans for their doubts that the President of the United States is legit.
There is a way for this to be a non-issue in 2012. And thats to verify Obamas eligibility right now. I mean, thats not asking for much. Its only been 3 years. Why wait? Look! This would not have been an issue and Trump would not be as high in the polls that he is now if:
#1) It were taken care of before Obama became President
#2) It were taken care of once the Republicans gained control of Congress.
#3) Sarah Palin or some other republican had taken the serious issue and run with it.
The longer Boehner takes to bring up this issue, the more dug in Trump gets on this and other issues as a candidate.
My preference would be to solve this issue now, suck the air out of trumps balloon and nominate a conservative to run against Obama or Biden on the other issues.
But this is not a Trump issue. This is a Constitutional issue (even if all records are fine and legit). Obamas failure to prove his eligibility opens doors for people like Arnold. Heck, George Soros could be eligible now. Why? Because the new precedence is American until proven otherwise.
This is a Constitutional issue. And Donald Trump knws that the US Constitution trumps all political ideology. Because without the Constitution nothing else matters.
I thought O’Reilly vouched for Obama the other night, shouldn’t that put the whole thing to rest? /sarc
I suspect they are "afraid" because if it turns out to be true, then pretty much the whole political establishment will have been shown to be either incompetent of dishonest.
It is incredible to me that no legitimate verification mechanism was not already in existence, or that not even ONE state attorney general, commissioner of elections, etc. has spoken up and/or taken action.
They are going to trot Jeb out and are scared of Trump.
The country isn't listening to Trump because of the birther issue. They are listening because he is speaking his mind in blunt and unambiguous terms.
Americans are tired of the conspiracy of silence regarding Obama that has been crammed down our throats by the Left, the Media, and now the GOP establishment.
The Marxists are saying “No only will you not get an answer to you questions, but you have some damned nerve even asking.” These “responsible Republicans” are too stupid to understand this.
Its a bad idea to take advice from the enemy.
If liberals say to Republicans, marginalize the birthers or lose, the right thing to do is take we birther seriously and keep the questions coming.
Long list of Reps out smearing Trump yesterday.
Go Trump, go.
with a few minor exceptions, the bush administration
was absolutely filled with these lame guys. bush
really was a dem lite. refusing to get tough on southern
border after 9/11 was disgraceful.
Don’t you just love it when we get all this advice from the commie/left wingers among us. Apparently the “birther issue” is hitting a nerve. All the “messiah” has to do is show us the birth certificate. The Donald should keep on “keepin’ on!”
