I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

National Review Slams Down The Birthers

by @ 12:39 pm on July 28, 2009. Filed under Barack Obama, Obama Derangement Syndrome, Politics

And comes up with the Quote of The Day:

Barack Obama may prefer European-style socialized health care. He may consider himself a citizen of the Earth and sometimes address his audiences as “people of the world,” as though he were born not in another country but on another planet. Like Bruce Springsteen, he has a lot of bad political ideas; but he was born in the U.S.A.

One hopes that, like William F. Buckley Jr.’s repudiation of the birthers from any place in mainstream conservatism back in the 1950s, this will help set to rest the idea that birtherism is anything other than the rantings of delusional conspiracy theorists.

    Clever trick there. Describing the movement to investigate Obama’s past as “Birtherism.” This has more to do with Obama’s past in a variety of different areas, besides just a birth certificate. It has to do with his college records, his Indonesian dual citizenship for 5 years, his lack of a US Passport, his trip to Pakistan on an Idonesian passport in 1982, his Father Obama Sr.’s ties to the Communist Odinga Klan in Kenya, Obama’s current ties to Odinga.

    But hey, I guess we should just drop all that, don’t bother with raising any questions about “The One.” It’s all just “conspiracy nonsense,” right?

    Yes, Eric –

    It IS just “conspiracy nonsense”. And by the way, we really did land on the moon, too. And, Bush/Cheney did NOT plan, allow or in any way assist in 9-11. Also.
