The Birthers. Has anyone seen these idiots? These are people who are seeking to expose the very obvious (albeit completely refuted) fact that President Barack Obama is not an American citizen. I can’t help but think that Birther gatherings are one racial epithet away from clan rallies. It would be nice for a change if we just had people who disagreed with the president’s policies without the obvious racial overtones.
Do these people really believe that the country has been hijacked by the non-American named Barack Hussein Obama? It occurs to me that if this were the case, this would be the biggest conspiracy since theDaVinci Code or the JFK assassination.
In order for the powers-that-be to pull off this hoax, the U.S. Congress, The Electoral College, The Supreme Court, the state of Hawaii, The Bureau of Vital Records, the media, former President G.W. Bush, former presidential contender John McCain, and more than a few others would all have to be co-conspirators. Just a bit far-fetched if you ask me.
There’s also the small detail of the constitution. If one of your parents are American citizen, you are an American citizen. Obama’smother was from Kansas. He was born in Hawaii on American soil. That makes the President an American national. Is John McCain a foreigner? After all, he was born in Panama.
I also must point out the very odd irony that the same people are crying foul now are the same folks who told all of the ‘hippie liberals’ to sit down and shut up when Al Gore won the 2000 election and never served a second in the Oval Office. I must also point out the fact that his citizenship was vetted by nearly all of the Republican presidential candidates during the last campaign. In a very odd twist, these Birthers are also the same folks that said Saddam Hussein hadWMD, and the FBI didn’t funnel drugs into black communities in the 1960’s and 70’s.
My how the tables have turned….
