Michigan Republican: ‘Strange’ no one is looking into Obama’s birthplace
By Eric W. Dolan
Tuesday, February 26, 2013 19:06 EST

Michigan state Sen. Tom Casperson, a Republican, said Tuesday he wasn’t sure whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States.

“I don’t know because it seems like that issue was dropped immediately as far as the major media went,” he said on Michael Patrick Shiels’ radio show. “My gut tells me if it had been a different president, like say George W. Bush, they’d have been digging into like there was no tomorrow and trying to get to the bottom of, which they never really tried to get to the bottom of, so it became a conspiracy theory and no big deal.”

“I think it is strange, again, that it is not being looked at by certain groups that normally would,” Casperson added. “I think what the media did to George W. Bush was OK. They kept his feet to the fire, but I think they equally should be doing the same thing to this president.”

His comments were captured by the group Progress Michigan.

2. This crap has gone beyond maddening, past funny, and is now just downright embarassing...



I am embarassed that this shit-for-brains has managed to get himself elected to public service in this country, both for what it says about him, and about the people who voted for him. I'm saddened to share a country with them, and wish that in a moment of self clarity, they would recognize their own stupidity, and spend the rest of their lives in silent, mortified embarassment.

101. I think you can opt out of jury service if you wish.

Go to "My Account" on the very top line, right hand side of the DU home page & there should be a way to do that.

And please don't let the negativism of a few members of that DU cross-section get to you.

I very much honor your frankness and courage in revealing your feelings of vulnerability. We all have vulnerabilities, but most try to hide and deny their own, and are maybe therefore less sensitive to the pain they are inflicting.

The world is a much better place when people try not to hurt each other, but sometimes we don't know when we are doing so. Maybe when you let others know they have done so, they will be less likely to do the same thing to others. Therefore your acknowledging a hurt is a valuable public service.

103. I don't mind being on the jury. I usually don't hide on the jury duty. I feel strongly

 

people have a right to express their opinion even if I may not agree with them. The one time I could remember hiding something is when a person used the word "c*nt. I think that is the most vuglar word in the english language. I'm no saint and I'm known to throw a cuss word out every now and then but that word is the worst. I try real hard not to cuss. But when you have worked around military guys you kind of get use to it and you don't think about it. But not that word.

Thank you for understanding feelings. I think if people stop and think before they make a comment it would make things easier. I have always been an upfront when it comes to opinions. But I do respect others opinions even if we may not agree. I just think I don't want to hurt a person's feelings. But you know how it is. Sometimes you are in no mood. Then after I respond I feel bad because I let my emotions get carried away from me.

You work or are you retired?

17. Investigations into w's awol record ended with a planted, forged document designed

to discredit Dan Rather. Investigations into w's background in TX ended with a brand-spanking-new driver's license number that somehow evaporated his previous record. Investigations into everything regarding w always ended in a suspicious dead end and missing information. Investigations into Obama's birth revealed microfiche of newspaper reports of his birth and two different versions of a live birth certificate including a long form on file in Hawaii, verified by the proper authorities.

That's the difference. w's history is checkered... Obama's is nearly impeccable, except for smoking a little pot as a student, which he happily admitted.

44. I remember being in Houston, maybe 1971

I was on leave and hanging out with some friends at a high-end apartment complex on Westheimer, in Houston.

Westheimer and Voss.

There were these sickeningly frat-types who were trolling for "hippie chicks", saying that UN Ambassador's son was hanging, telling those girls that they had more reefer, coke and acid than they could handle.

I was hanging out with this beautiful Mexican woman named Gloria. She went over to those idiots and said that she would check it out.

She told me that W was ensconced in an apartment, hanging out in some harem tent like Ahab the Arab. She said it was probably the most ridiculous thing she had ever seen. And, this woman had been around the block a few dozen times.

W was a fucking really bad joke.

And, unfortunately, the joke was on us.

26. We grow a very special breed of crazy, here in Michigan

I hang my head to admit that we are the state that gave the world Ted Nugent.

Fortunately, they are the exception to the rule. Unfortunately, they are a very LOUD and public exception to the rule.

28. Birthers

Maybe he should be questioning Donald Trump, Sheriff Arpaio, and Orly Taitz. : )

They were all deeply committed to getting 'the truth' about President Obama's birthplace.

These clowns are worse than lobotomized rabid dogs.

It is truly embarrassing watching the three ring circus known as politics.

68. I agree with you, 100%!

What we are watching, these days, IS embarrassing, because it is POLITICS...not GOVERNANCE.

And I am convinced that the only thing that the republicans have left - and they know this - is political theater. At some point, people are going to wake the fuck up, I hope, and say, 'enough of the song and dance, what are you going to do to help AMERICA move toward income equality and fiscal solvency based on logical and conscientious choices?' At least, I hope that enough people out there are still not too far out of touch, or too anesthetized, to ask that question.

Obama was born on Oahu, August 4, 1961.. and it was actually settled in 2008.

Idiots with their head up their ass like this one in Michigan are terribly boring and need to grasp at the stupid.

39. It's become so overdone....

I have a hard time believing they really are so stupid. I am beginning to think it' s just all part of the trite Republican diversion: waste time, use the ignorant, muddy the real issues, water down reality, overload the public mind with the trivial, and confuse. They really do not want anyone to be able to do anything. That's the goal. If they pull it off, what they end up with is a public that really doesn't have any use for government therefore accomplishing their ultimate goal of destroying federal government powers and funneling it to the states and corporations. They win though deception and political usury.

like they really dug into his deserting the military, like they dug into his alcohol and cocaine addictions, like they dug into his part in 911, like they dug into his participation in the Skull and Bones cult at Yale, like they dug into his homosexual love affair with Victor Ashe. Oh yeah, the would have been beating the Bushes (pun intended).

As if the tea baggers haven't been debating this birther dead horse for 6 or 7 years already.

Except the Clinton campaign, the McCain campaign, the Romney campaign, the Koch Brothers, various other right wing nazi think tanks.

I'm sure millions have been spent trying to prove Obama was born somewhere other than Hawaii. And they all came up short.

BECAUSE HE WAS BORN IN HAWAII YOU STUPID FUCKING DICK HEAD!
