I know that these types of polls occur when political passions are up, but a new poll showing that 51 percent of Republicans believe Obama was born outside of the U.S. needs to be a wake up call for many GOPers more interested in Snooki than Obama. Get your heads out of your rear ends, people; the president is a U.S. citizen!!!!!! Read
If President Obama were not born in the U.S., he would not be eligible to be president, a fact that I’m sure many of these “pseudobirthers” do not realize. The hard-core birthers, the types who read World Net Daily and distrust “liberal Fox News,” feed the delusion with that knowledge. Many times I have received a fake “Associated Press news story that reveals Obama is a foreigner and Muslim” accompanied by badly spelled demands that we print this “news story” in our newspaper! I mentioned that such delusions are bipartisan — chortling liberals should be reminded of a 2007 poll where 42 percent of Democrats either believed President George W. Bush caused 9-11 or knew about it in advance. Read From truthers begat birthers.
There’s some good news for GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, though. While he trails badly among “birther” Republicans, he leads among sane Republicans, those who comprehend that the president is a U.S. citizen. On the other hand, the unsane prefer Mike Huckabee.
