1) CNN should be embarrassed!
As John Sununu bluntly put it…this country has a job problem, and CNN keeps talking about “birther” and Donald Trump.
Soledad O’Brien thought it was legit to bring up the “birther” issue because Donald Trump is a high level supporter/surrogate for Romney. And she wanted someone from Mitt Romney’s campaign to acknowledge that Donald Trump is wrong on the “birther” issue.
Watch the video exchange between John Sununu and Soledad O’Brien by clicking here. Be warned that it is very funny—I could not stop laughing.
While there are 24 million of people—as reminded by John Sununu—are either unemployed or underemployed, CNN will try to distract people from Obama’s job and massive spending record with the “birther” issue.
Let’s face it…Obama may or may not be natural-born citizen, but the fact is that he has been the President for over 3 years. And as much as many people—myself included—want to roll back the damages that he has caused, we can’t. What people can do is to vote in November to ensure that he can’t go on for another 4 years.
2) “Birtherism” was not first started by Republicans
“Birtherism” was not started by Republicans since Obama’s run for White House back in 2008. About 40 years before, ironically, George Romney—Mitt Romney’s father—faced the same issue started by the then prominent Democrat U.S. Representative Emanuel Celler who expressed “serious doubts” on whether George Romney was eligible to be President because George Romney was born in Mexico. Celler announced that…the question should not be allowed to go unanswered. Many constitutional law experts argued that he was eligible since both his parents were U.S. citizens.
“I am a natural born citizen. My parents were American citizens. I was a citizen at birth,” George Romney said. The Congressional Research Service had to advise people that its analysts agreed with George Romney. (Click here to read the article from Chicago Tribune).
So, “birtherism” was fair game when Democrats started it. When it was brought up by Republicans in 2008, “birtherism” was not “fair”. Congress did not act to verify Obama’s eligibility, did it?
3) Romney was not reluctant to provide his birth certificate…
Here it is…
