Theory Of Low Expectation


My cable was out for a couple of hours two nights ago and I had already written my blog posts. So, all I had to amuse myself with was Facebook and the radio. It was just as well because, when I the cable came back on, there was Lou Dobbs on MSNBC entertaining a man who was advancing the ridiculous theory that the far right republicans are championing concerning President Barack Obama's American citizenship.

Enough already! His birth certificate showed up the other day and it states that he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4, 1961. Now, there are clowns asking to see "the long form" or detailed birth certificate. My question is, "Why?" What do they hope to learn from it? Do you think it's going to say that he was born in the Philippines or in Guam or in Kenya?

Come on, would you idiots accept the fact that the President of the United States (yours as much as mine) is the child of a Kenyan father and white American woman from Kansas. He is a mixed race child who is not 100% white, as you all would like him to be, and yes, he is part black. Now, deal with it! What will you be saying next? That he was at the grassy knoll. That he is Osama Bin Laden's cousin?

It's bad enough and pathetic that the grand old party is entertaining the nut fringe. It's even sadder that major television networks like CNN and MSNBC are entertaining them too. I see people emailing on some of the new sites asking, "Why won't he come forth with the long form birth certificate... HAH?" I wonder if I asked some of these writers to produce the long form version of their birth certificates, if they could do so?

It must really be a slow news month. I mean on another news station, they are still giving us Michael Jackson's death watch all night ad nauseum. At least that's somewhat entertaining and enlightening (for the truly brain dead). I mean these poor folks with obviously too much time on their hands are spinning around these ridiculous theories about President Obama and are giving the tabloids a run for their money. I often wonder if they really believe some of the foolishness that they write and say, or if this is really just a flight from reality. The reality that... yes, Virginia... there is a black man in the White House!

Their hope is that someday they'll find a document that says President Obama was born in some foreign country and therefore, cannot be the rightful President of the United States. And, with that being said, John McCain and Sarah Palin can take their rightful places in the White House. Or, better still, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck! I call this, the theory of low expectations.

I'm sure the country would want to "do-over" of the entire Republican primary if there was any chance that Barack could not be in office.

Let the haters hate, it's what they do.

Long form birth certificate?! Are these people serious. Smh

Keith, another well expressed writing. Lou Dobbs and Kirren Chitry are good reasons for not even watching CNN. Lou is beyond the pale with his off the wall thinking. I agree with Bill Maher. Lou is the king of the folks who ask the question, "Where does the sun go at night?" Kirren is worse. She doesn't seem to be listening to the people she interviews, so she often asks questions unrelated to the conversation at hand. And don't let me leave out poor Don Lemon!! He makes up words, asks some dumb questions and then takes offense when challenged. These are the folks who are supposed to keep us informed?! OMG.

The Republican Party has been decimated both by the Obama Election and the fact that people blame them for the present economic
mess..All they have to hold on to is the nut fringe.

All this talk about birth certificates is ridiculous...The same people with crazy theories about the Jews being responsible for 911 and the walk on the moon being fake...The Nut Fringe!

Brenda said...

The silliness continues.

Cheryl said...

I already don't watch Fox News...Can CNN and MSNBC be that far behind?

Angie B. said...

These folk are obviously crazy and like you said..they shouldn't be given a serious audience.

Sunflower said...

These Obama Conspiracy nuts will never be satisfied..Tomorrow they'll be saying that the birth certificate that they have is fake.

Lisa said...

I can't take the Republicans seriously ever again if this is the kind of people they are now getting in bed with. They used to keep their nuttier supporters hidden.

Halo said...

Crazy, Just Crazy...Are they serious about needing to see his birth certficate? Now?? Don't they think that he was seriously vetted before he even ran for President? and by people far more sophisticated than any of them??
