The Birther Headache

Ken AshfordRepublicansLeave a Comment

The Politico discusses the "birther" problem I've discussed a few times here on this blog.  What's the problem?  With Congress out of session in August, legislators will be going home to their constituents.  And Republican legislators will be inundated with questions from citizens who insist that Obama is a ferner and therefore can't be preznit of these here united states.

How do they not tell their consituents that they are… uh… idiots?

Some are avoiding having town hall meetings altogether.

Others are placating dishonestly:

Sen. Jim Inhofe has also tried to find the elusive middle ground.

“They have a point,” he said of the birthers. “I don’t discourage it. … But I’m going to pursue defeating [Obama] on things that I think are very destructive to America.”

No, they don't have a point (other than the one on top of their head).  I mean, if there really wasn't any substance at all to the birther conspiracy allegations, then folks like Inhofe need to drop everything and investigate.  (They won't of course, because everybody with a brain knows that Obama is an American citizen).
