Despite a frustrated GOP, anti-Obama 'birthers' still persist

Washington (CNN) – Dark theories about President Barack Obama's citizenship show no signs of fading away.

But "birthers," as those skeptics of Obama's heritage are known, no longer seem relegated to tinfoil hat fringes of American politics.

    GOP is reaping the ridicule now after all the time sowing the seeds of a fake grass roots movement. The teatroll hobbits and birthers are what defines the GOP now. That's what happens when you push moderates out.

    Why did The Donald send his investigators to Hawaii to prove Barack was born in Kenya ? It makes as much sense as invading Iraq after 9/11 . . . . but we know those Republicans don't need reasons for their nonsense.

    Someone please attempt to give us a cogent, coherent, viable explanation of why this tinfoil hatted filth would ever have been thought up or legitimized by the MSM, and why would still be talking about this, if Obama were white. Go ahead. I could use a laugh.

    Mittens is a unicorn. It's true. There are 15,000+ signatures on a petition in AZ demanding that Bennett investigate this and prove that Mittens is not a unicorn before putting him on the ballot. That's more people than sent Bennett communications demanding he investigate Obama's origins.

    Fair is fair actually made sense. These folks should just stop....or not. I'd be interested to see if Mittens buys some cojones to put the breaks on these idiots...or not. Either way these folks don't help the GOP cause at all.
    I wish they would concentrate on the economy also as it is recovering quite nicely in spite of the obstruction, road-blocks and fervent prayers for the country to tank from the GOP.
    Obama 2012. Seriously America.

    Seriously??? If your definition of "quite nicely" is stagnation, I suppose.
