It seems that Lou Dobbs and Sarah Plain now have something more in common? Besides feeling free to discuss any issue of which they know nothing, they are both what is referred to with that neologism, “birthers.” There is nothing that would satisfy these birthers and in particular Sarah Palin because they don't want to be bothered by facts.
They are demagogues of the worse sort, and it makes no difference to them that Obama's birth certificate was made public long ago, as well as copies of his birth announcement that was published in Hawaiian newspapers at the time. Actually, even had he not been born in Hawaii he would be an American citizen by virtue of his mother’s citizenship (like John McCain who was not born on US soil).
It is all irrelevant to Palin and her know-nothing followers. Their purpose is to stir up people and repeat the lies enough times that some people will believe them, illogical as they are. That these are ridiculous charges and reflect on a mean-spirited nasty turn of mind should give more people pause.
Palin has shown no respect for our President. And make no mistake, he is President of the United States, and deserves the respect of all our citizens, like him or not. She has said he badmouths America abroad---that is not true. But she badmouths him all over the place, as he has not.
As a candidate he was respectful of everyone, including Palin, despite her wild remarks, but she is not a big enough person to do likewise. Perhaps Palin focuses on wild charges about Obama, about healthcare, about everything because she cannot discuss any issues intelligently. Even on her pal Hannity’s show, she kept confusing Iran and Iraq.
