Birthers Face A Deluge Of Facts They Choose To Ignore

President Obama has played his card:

The White House has released the long form of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate in response to festering questions about whether he was born in the U.S.

The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn’t good for the country. It may have been good politics and good TV, but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country. Therefore, the President directed his counsel to review the legal authority for seeking access to the long form certificate and to request on that basis that the Hawaii State Department of Health make an exception to release a copy of his long form birth certificate. They granted that exception in part because of the tremendous volume of requests they had been getting.

Joseph Farah, maniacal birther, countered by doubling down on crazy:

We look forward to reviewing it like so many other Americans do at this late date. But it is important to remember there are still dozens of other questions concerning this question of eligibility that need to be resolved to assure what has become a very skeptical public concerning Barack Obama’s parentage, his adoption, his citizenship status throughout his life and why he continues to cultivate a culture of secrecy around his life.

And so it goes.  I’m not shocked at the response.  Nothing short of the president stepping down, and revealing himself as an African socialist would be good enough for this bizarre crew.  Even in the face of evidence already presented by the president, Farah continues this lunacy.  Why doesn’t he and other birthers simply say what it is that’s driving them?  It’s not the origin of his birth, it’s the prevailing belief that he is an agent of Islam.  Obama is engaging in the most nefarious duplicity ever seen in American history.  He must be outed–not simply because he couldn’t have been born here–but because he is a Muslim.  In this instance, facts mean nothing.  That’s clearly disturbing.


Just How Liberal Was Ronald Reagan?

I’m convinced today’s conservatives don’t know anything about Ronald Reagan and his policies. For example: Did they know Ronald Reagan raised taxes eleven times during his administration? Do they know that the tax rate under President Barack Obama is lower than it was under President Reagan? Is this a case of selective amnesia, or they so far removed from reality, they don’t care about altering history for political expediancy?  It fits into their modus operandi to selectively edit historical fact.  That doesn’t have to mean the rest of us have to fall for this sleight of hand.  All you need to do is read a book to.  Evidently, they never do.
