    Well, when you have people like Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, and Michael Steele rejecting the birthers, it's pretty clear that the birthers are nuts. While they will continue, the fact that even some of the Republican leadership loonies are calling them names, so it's pretty clear that the birthers have suffered a humiliating defeat and now belong in the ranks of those who believe in Area 51, that the moon landing was a fake, or that the CIA orchestrated 9/11. Of course, you can't convince birthers since they are caught in their own rattrap of lies and distortions supported by their seething hatred of Obama, but it's good to see that this nonsense has been relegated to bizarro land.

    Damage Control: GOP Bosses Coming Down Hard On Birthers | TPMDC

    ...
    Last night on his TV show, Bill O'Reilly comprehensively debunked the Birthers. O'Reilly said to a letter-writer who declared himself not convinced that Obama is an American: "That is because you don't want to be convinced, Larry."

    ...
    Even Ann Coulter, who normally can't resist the opportunity to attack Democrats as evil and un-American, calls the Birthers "cranks."

    ...
    Chairman Steele believes that this is an unnecessary distraction and believes that the president is a U.S. citizen.

    When you're more paranoid than Bill O'Reilly that's saying a lot.

    Look Patters --

    This is really a very simple problem to resolve.

    Mr. Obama can make this issue *poof* disappear immediately.

    All he does is to tell the Hawaii State Department to reveal his "original vital records" maintained on file.

    OR

    He can off his army of lawyers and let Occidental College release his college transcript.

    All it takes is one lousy phone call.

    I'm rather happy to be 2-cents short of a $$$. I like conspiracies and I detest BS.

    I could care who says what.

    I don't care how informed the who said whaters' are. Did I say "whaters"... :p

    A human that goes out of their way to hide their past clearly has something(s) ... "somethings"? :p to hide.

    While not clearly the political maven like some here I like to look at things from a average guy kind of way.

    He easily could produce a copy of his long form BC, perhaps a transcript or two ... something ... anything except "Dreams of My Father".

    Well ... his father was a socialist and he is living his dream ... :rofl:

    I hope he becomes the best President in my lifetime at least ... I really do it's in my children's best interest.

    But I look at him like a snake oil salesman ... and I don't trust him ... why should I ??? :confused2:

    Except it's not an issue. Nobody takes it seriously.

    Hawaii has already validated its authenticity. After that it's all a waste of time entertaining a silly conspiracy.

    Privacy is something to hide? No.

    Except nobody takes it seriously. It doesn't hurt him in the least except with the 2% of republicans who think it's an issue. Nobody else does.

    I could only wish, but we won't even get close to socialism under Obama. :(

    If nobody takes it seriously, why is he hiring an army of lawyers to prevent the release of his Occidental College transcript? :confused:

    I think the point you're missing is that it is resolved. Now, if you want to see Obama's Occidental records for other reasons, such as to see if he was chairman of the local chapter of the Communist Party, that's a different story. That's legitimate. But, questionning his citizenship is offensive on so many levels, primarily because by any reasonable or sensible measure (even according to O'Reilly and Coulter) he's a natural born citizen. That some people can't see that is strange to me. I really can't understand your ethics on this one.

    Who the hell cares?! Crucify Lou Dobbs because he doesn't think Obama is a US citizen! God forbid anyone has a damn opinion outside the norm.

    I love it when youresort to using Annie Coulter as a source to back up your position. :singing:


    Why hide the certificate? Still haven't answered. It would have the name of the Hospital, delivering doctor or midwife and nurse, case closed. He hasn't senn fit to allow this information to stop these dastardly people who question his highness....

    BO should be trasnparent as he promised during the campaign. He should live up to his values.

    These media icons were the same fear mongers a year ago screaming that Obama wasn't Christian... as if that mattered.

    I'm guessing that Obama lost his original birth certificate, and the only long-form version is in the Hawaii records department. I don't think he respects the position of the birthers enough to provide them with more info.

    As I already pointed out, your earlier link showed that the code on the long-form would indicate how his original birth certificate was requested, which could have been through the mail, by a friend of the family, or by a doctor, so your link basically stated that even if Obama produces his long-form certificate, the birthers will raise questions about the method used to originally get the birth certificate. So, producing the certificate will resolve nothing, just as producing the official, state-dept. approved short certificate resolved nothing.

    This is EXACTLY what i'm talking about, do you really say this kind of thing at work, the supermarket check out line, or the local watering hole?

    If Obama is sending people to psych hospital why are you still around? :D

    If he doesn't RESPECT the birthers enough to show them more proof than the bastard should be impeached, many of the so called "birthers" believed all his "bullsh!t" and voted for him.
    This all sounds silly and stupid but his refusal to show it will keep it going until something finally resolves it.

    If the Obama Groupies want this to go away their Messiah will have to be the one to end it, SHOW THE ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE, that shouldn't be so hard for a President to do If I can do it.
