7 Birthers Speaking At The Republican Convention plus Romney make it 8 Birthers

By Annie-Rose Strasser, Aviva Shen and Josh Israel on Aug 24, 2012 at 3:28 pm
Mitt Romney’s invocation of birtherism on Friday took his campaign to a new level of involvement with the bogus idea that President Obama is actually Kenyan-born and therefore ineligible to serve as Commander-in-Chief. But that dog-whistle theory has already been embraced by many major Republicans with whom Romney has long been happy to consort.

Indeed, as Republicans head down to Tampa for their convention next week, they are preparing to see a veritable festival of politicians who have dabbled in — or fully embraced — birtherism.

Here are the members of the birther bunch who will be speaking in Tampa next week:
1. Donald Trump. The famed billionaire/birther king Donald Trump has been the most vociferous — and most closely connected to Romney — person alleging that the President wasn’t born in the United States.
2. Actress Janine Turner. The Northern Exposure star who has her own conservative radio show wrote a long screed titled “Reasoning ‘Kenyan Born.’” In it, she complains that anyone who questions the president’s citizenship is deemed a racist: “If this were a legal case in court, book bio stating that Obama was ‘born in Kenya’ would be taken into consideration.”
3. Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens. During a town hall captured on video (at 3:5), Olens said, “You know the state of Hawaii says he’s produced a certified birth certificate… so on one hand I have to trust the state of Hawaii follows the laws. On the other hand it would be nice for the President to say, here it is, I have a copy.”

2. I was just watching a re-run of Mitt's Birther moment

and saw a nun in her habit in the background cheering and smiling him on.

you think since Nuns on a Bus against Ryan was a recent topic the Romney camp hired a nun costume to sit there?

I do.

7. Birtherism is now a campaign strategy for Romney. Romney did the kickoff today, and Trump

will lead the GOP in Tampa.

8. I used to watch Northern Exposure. Disappointed that Turner turned out

to be such a total dingbat.
