    President Obama blasts lies, disinformation

    “I can’t spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead,” quipped Obama, who took a deep breath to gather his thoughts when asked if the poll reflected his inability to communicate with voters.

    “The facts are the facts. We went through some of this during the campaign — there is a mechanism, a network of misinformation that in a new media era can get churned out there constantly,” said a visibly annoyed Obama, referring to “birthers,” who have waged a guerrilla campaign questioning either the existence or the validity of his Hawaiian birth certificate.
    Unfortunately for him the birther retards are gonna be around until he leaves office. Best strategy is to ignore them.

    While I agree, kerry properly ignoring the Swift boaters for untruth didn't work out very well. Stupid has a long self life, sadly.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I think this differs greatly from Kerry's situation. In his case, people assumed the soldiers didn't have an axe to grind and had no reason to lie - it wasn't until later that they were discredited and, by then, it was too late to put the Genie back in the bottle. In this case, people are, generally speaking, aware of the fact that the birthers have an axe to grind. That and the fact that they are just plain off the hook bat**** crazy.

    yes, there are some differences. But I wouldn't assume there as no axe to grind as there was evidence of that axe all along.

    I want to thank you for keeping the topic of Barry's refusal to allow public scrutiny of his records alive and well…. I know you don’t mean to do it, but thanx anyway.
