"The Donald" and the Birther Issue

Birthplace of Independent Conservatism

Two plus years into the unfortunate Presidency of Barrack Hussein Obama and there are those like "The Donald", Sarah Palin, and a host of others who refuse to let the whole "birther" issue die. Even given the fact that the state of Hawaii certified the Presidents birth.

Keeping this issue on the front burner certainly plays well to a certain base of political activists and potential presidential candidates, but is a waste of time as well as a waste of resource. The money "The Donald" is spending to chase the the birther illusion would be better spent to expose the dangers inherent in the President's politics and philosophy on governance. But hey, it's "The Donald's" money and he can after all spend it as he sees fit.

The birther issue is a hollow attempt to expose the President as not being constitutionally able to serve as President of the United States. It is time for serious conservative candidates for the office in 2012 to spend time and resources in discrediting the Presidents leadership, policies, and political and ethical beliefs based on provable factual evidence and objective criteria.

The birther issue is nothing more than playing to the emotions of a certain base. What is amusing on the one hand, and befuddling on the other is that this kind of stuff is generally the hallmark of progressives.

  1. As I see it his lack of qualification comes from lack of experience that the MSM and horde of useful idiots are willing to overlook to feel good about having elected our first president of "color"...
    I have my doubts about him being a natural born citizen, but unless our Govt is willing to take action, it's a moot point!
    My concern with this issue is that he grew up in other nations and has no love for our nation as "We the people" do!

  2. John, while I share your concerns I know that this issue is going nowhere. If it had wings it would have gone somewhere by now.

    We need to work very hard and diligently at exposing all the reasons why he is not qualified to serve as President based on sound data and demonstrate all his weaknesses.

    If a solid conservative candidate can do that in 2012 Mr. Obama will be as we say, relegated to the history books. Or is it the trash heap of society? Actually I think it both.

  3. Good post, Les. I agree with your overarching point in that King Obamas ineptitude needs to be exposed for what it is by daily examples...

    But Donald Trump's theatrics (because that is what they are) are meant for entertainment and of any issue, the "birther" issue for him has the biggest bang for the buck. It shows he is not serious in running and it shows just how ludicrously poor the GOP field is...

    We have no true conservative choice, at this point. Gingrich? Really? Palin? Um, no. Huckabee? Not quite. Romney? I share your opinion of him, precisely.

    Rand Paul, Gary Johnson, Ron Paul, Herman Cain, I would canvas my neiighborhood to support these guys but the rest of the field? No thanks, I'll vote libertarian.

  4. Tim - I like Ron Paul, and Gary Johnson. They have experience and that experience can be a strong point.

    Rand Paul, and Hermann Cain, while I like them both, lacking experience the left will use the same argument the conservatives used against Obama in 2008. Lack of real experience. And to some degree they would be correct. And I would also add Representative Allan West's name to the list of future serious potentials as well.

  5. Alas it is so, Les...on the other hand, The One was elected in a landslide despite the "lack of experience" and we live during unprecedented times so who knows?

  6. Les, I'm not pursuing the BC issue. And trumps actions are to me a distraction similar to Ross Perot. But if anyone can rid us of that POC 0bomba, good riddance!
    I feel Ron Paul is the closest thing we will see to libertarian. But he will have to defeat the MSM also. And the RNC is more of a Club for RINOs...
    I would settle for Herman Cain though.

  7. Anyone remember Gary Aldrich the Secret Service Agent who wrote a book in 1996 alleging that President Clinton was having sex with an intern in the Oval Office.

    They called him a kook too. And we all know how that all turned out.

    Amazing that so many so-called rightwingers are willing to believe the liberal media, before those of us who believe Obama to be born in Kenya.

    You all should check your conservative/libertarian membership cards. Seems you are either being hoodwinked by liberals or maybe indeed not rightwingers at all.

    Shame on all of you.

  8. Tim, amazing that you would support Ron Paul over Donald Trump. Yeah, he's good on economics. But he absolutely SUCKS! on foreign policy. He doesn't even believe Radical Islam exists. And he's a horrible critic of Israel.

    This website is opposed to Islamo-Fascism. Trump is a diehard Americanist who is strong on opposing Islamo-Fascism. Very dissapointed in you Tim. Very dissapointed. You're better than that.

  9. Eric - I like Trump but don't think he's serious...I love Ron Paul too, especially on economics. Just to prove that I am open to both sides of the birther issue, I'm running your piece tomorrow!

  10. Last sentence is spot on. This is Alinsky through and through (and no surprise given Trump's ties to Soros and his history of supporting progressive pols and policies). And we're the sheeple this time, slurping it up like foaming at the mouth Obots. Or Trump Chumps.

    No thank you. Dump Trump.
