  1. Gibbs: Birther issue 'nonsense'


    White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs once again dismissed conspiracy theories about the president's citizenship ...

    ... in his daily briefing Monday, noting that proof of President Obama's birthplace had been posted online and Obama's citizenship had been demonstrated "ad nauseam."

    But Gibbs, sounding alternately bemused and exasperated, told White House reporters that conspiracy theories about the president's birthplace would never go away.

    "I hate to indulge, in such an august setting as the White House briefing room...the made-up, fictional nonsense whether the president was born in this country," Gibbs said. "If I had some DNA, it wouldn't assuage those who believe he wasn't born here."

    Attempting to put the issue to rest, once more, Gibbs assured reporters: "The president was born in Honolulu, in the 50th state of the greatest country on the face of the earth...There are 10,000 more important issues for people in this country to discuss, than whether or not the president is a citizen when it's been proven ad nauseam."

    Asked to speculate on why conspiracy theorists continue to fixate on the issue, Gibbs joked: "Because for $15 you can get an Internet address and say whatever you want."

    Mr Gibbs,

    1 Why did Obama start his campaign in the home of a terrorist?

    2 Why did Obama buy his home from a crook?

    3 Why did Obama go to a racist church and consider his racist pastor to be his spiritual mentor?

    4 Why did Obama bow to a muslim king and slight the queen of England?

    To these questions and many more, as you can see from the op, Mr Gibbs response is "That's nonsense"!
  5. Here is a better question:

    Why did the republicans put up such a losing ticket as McCain/Palin?

  6. Lack of imagination and low self esteem.
  7. www.huffingtonpost.com is proof of that.

    Because they felt he was "owed". Same thing with Dole. At least with McCain there was a chance he might win. With Dole, there never was any chance of that.
