    How hard is it to answer a question about where the President of the USA was born?

    Give us a frickin' break here.

    where Obama was born is a "political" question?

    what school of journalism did you attend?

    how about...."what are we going to do about all the kids at the border?" that's a political question, and one that most voters would like an answer to

    I hate seeing hack threads in breaking news. Maybe this candidate was offended that she would be asked about the President's birthplace.

    It's on par with, "Have you stopped beating your wife."

    Exactly, there is only one Sarah Palin and I can't think of anyone else that even comes close. Although Lucile Ball in I Love Lucy might, but Lucy may be more of the Bachman type. So which is which, Ethel and Lucy, Palin and Bachman?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    This lady was obviously not well prepared for this interview.

    Kind of reminds me of Sarah Palin.

    Any thoughts?
    She walked on a "gotcha" interview? Smart move.

    Again, this is not a question out of the blue, she made public statements regarding Obama's birthplace. Fair game.

    If she is that much of a conspiracy theorist nutter, as a voter, I'd like to know.

    Sorry, but if she is going to comment on those things public in various ways, they are fair game to ask questions on.
