do NOT support
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
"will ignore" comes close to I do not care so I picked that. ALthough I do wonder how many of these people calling birthers a bunch of loons are the same ones claiming Bush lied for war,Bush stole the elections, Bush masterminded 9-11 or some other retarded leftist conspiracy. I do get a kick out of those people poking fun at Birther-tards.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
This pretty much sums up the ignorance and stupidity of people who think the president is from Kenya...

Really good example of how really stupid partisan hacks can be.
No Lives Matter
While I'm not a birther, I get real tired of the "proof" that Obama was born in the US is the news paper announcement. According to the news paper in McAllen Texas, I graduated high school in 1995. I graduated in Kansas...but the paper in Texas printed it because my grandparents called it in.
Any one could have called in the announcement in Hawaii. Since Obama's grandparents lived there, it would not be unreasonable to assume they called it in.
This whole contraversy does detract from the debate. Especially since some assume that most conservatives agree with birthers. I'd rather that from the 2012 election forward, we require all candidates to provide proof of eligibility to each state in which their name appears on the ballet. Nothing too difficult, just a long form birth certificate and a verifiable living history to show that the candidate is at least 35 and lived in the US for fourteen years.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
All of this crap does nothing to solve our nation's problems - nothing.
First off, we must know the truth, not political rhetoric.
I think that the economic truth is directly linked to the balance of trade deficit.
We do not need lies about Bush or Obama or even George Wallace.
And I was relieved to find out we're not discussing a pricky fashion store.
And otherwise - don't care. I already had my opinion and his opinion doesn't really mean anything on top of it
While I agree that the birther thing is very stupid and politically motivated (of course it is) I fail to see how his personal relationship and friendship with his parent's is suppose to be more solid.

I think his action of continue to acknowledge them will only make them stronger, retarded movements thrive on attention.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
The best thing to do with the birther movement is ignore it. There is no reasoning with such stupidity and any attempt is basically a waste of effort.
