. . .play dumb next year and ask the question "why does everyone think Obama wasn't born here."

You guys are part of the fucking problem.

That is all. . .

1. If they insist on running that birther crap
then they shouldn't expect me to watch.

This is getting boring. One of those clowns has to come up with some actual proof that Obama wasn't born here; otherwise all they are doing is just regurgitating old nonsense.

10. Besides being BS, the idea that he was born outside the US is
totally irrelevant. His mother was an American citizen. You need only one American citizen parent to be an American citizen!

My daughter's husband is French. her kids with him will be American, but she also plans to actually give birth in France, so that if anything happens to her, they will also be French citizens and have access to French health care.

Unlike the US, France requires that citizens be born on French soil.

A baby whose parents are not American must be born here to be American, but a baby who has an American parent--and only one is needed--is an American, even if he is born on Mars!

2. I heard Obama was born on some Pacific island.

I also heard that Dick Morris is the love child of bile and cholesterol.

3. What really rankles me is the absurdity
of it all. The media are too dense to realize it is stupid.

22. Sadly, they aren't stupid.
They know exactly what they're doing and who they are doing it for. The consumers are the duped ones.

Worthy of Fellini though.

(edited to add) So much for that urbane persona, Trump boy.

5. Trump's fake candidacy
has about run its' course. Thankfully. But I also look at it in terms of loads and loads of folks getting a chance to see up close what a fraudulent self-promoter he is.

7. They are propaganda for idiots, not an actual information or news source
They are their own problem, discredited frauds of infotainment. People with functional minds go elsewhere for news.

9. I've been watching the coverage. There's alot going on right now.
Trump's blathering is a top news story everywhere, like it or not.

The coverage on MSNBC is generally making fun of Trump, even laughing in his face and pointing out his history of bankruptcies.

BTW, the far-right fundies realize that Trump makes his money off of the mortal sin of gambling right? I'm pretty sure that the showgirls at his casinos don't dance in full-length dresses as well.

Then there's the uncomfortable fact that he's on his 3rd marriage which seems to be the norm these days for right-wing politicians.

Family values schamily schmalues...

His current wife:

11. Remember how they ran the Swift Boat Liars all day every day for weeks?
And then after the election they talked about how horrible those guys were for lying about Kerry.

15. Exactly!
These are the same people who obsess over bulls*%t trivia like Sarah Palin's tweets and Tea Party lies and then scratch their heads and wonder why polls show that so many Americans are ill-informed.

17. So true
They played up Sarah and look what happened? Then they pushed "I'm not a witch" O'Donnell, them Michele B and now Trump. The MSM promotes these creepy bastards.

18. shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
As Clinton put it, you don't stop your enemy from shooting themselves in the foot. We like the crazies to be out there making the Republican party unpalatable for the sane.

21. an amazing pile of stupid and ugly.
makes a nice smokescreen, don't he? that is what this is about- probably getting paid to splash this mud around, and takes the camera off of palin while they scramble for an actual candidate. can't let obama sit out there all alone, where someone might figure out that he is actually the president.
