Birthers Baiers and Returners, Oh My!
American Thinker ^ | July 25, 2012 | Cindy Simpson

Posted on 07/25/2012 4:17:33 AM PDT by Flotsam_Jetsome

We're told that all of the "ers" distract us from the most important topic: economic policy.  But could it be that the skeptics themselves, who like all of us can't help but be concerned about the economy, address the other issues because they sense said issues' impact on the character and ideology of the candidate?  At least that's what leaders of both camps of "ers" tell us is their motivation.

Erickson claims: "The only difference is that the Bainers' insufferable stupidity is at the heart of the Obama campaign while the Romney campaign has worked hard to not be tied to Birthers."  He's right about that.  However, what Erickson and others fail to note are the important differences among the "ers."  Further, the timing of the media coverage of the so-called conspiracies is worth a look.

The range of birther claims, from questions on the authenticity of the posted certificate to authorship of Obama's autobiographies, actually have both facts and credible authorities to back them up.  The investigations by Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Cold Case Posse and author Jack Cashill immediately come to mind.

Regarding the Bainers, however, Pollak noted: "[T]he Obama campaign is ... not doing their fact-checking, instead relying on their media buddies to carry their poisonous water. Every class warfare straw at which they grasp seems to be lying atop a factual landmine. And with every Obama narrative that collapses, the President seems less and less credible.

In before the ridiculous fake conspiracy straw man, trying to discredit the thread.

As we’ve seen several times in the past few weeks.

Let's hope there's less butthurt engendered by this post to an AT editorial than the last one I put up. Its spotlight on the cockroach media effect is particularly noteworthy.

Bonus: Arpaio's 17 July presser mention.

Yep. As the heat turns up, watch for attempts to further muddy the waters to accelerate.

I’m surprised he didn’t jump on the “The Jefferson’s” actor thread making the “gee we’ll never know what he knew before he was bumped off”. Well, we’ll see how the day goes.

Snake-oil salesmen rarely are.

SO many people couldn't see the content of his character because the liberal MSM made sure all THEY talked about was the color of his skin.

"SO many people couldn't see the content of his character because the liberal MSM made sure all THEY talked about was the color of his skin."

And that sums up how we ended up at this deplorable state of affairs. Nothing has been allowed to stand in the way of the installment of this guy as America's Historic First Black PresidentTM. Not his shadowy origins and background, his obvious Marxism, his utter lack of meaningful experience or understanding of free enterprise, and certainly not any piddling trifles such as the Constitution or the Rule of Law.

When it comes to the man calling himself "Obama," tan trumps all.

"Democrats are less and less credible."

I saw that. From now on Barky's lawyers should just blow off entirely any and all judicial proceedings related to establishment of constitutional bona fides. I mean, it worked so well in Georgia, after all. . .
