Birthers Are Back. This Time It’s New Hampshire

Birther queen Orly Taitz has moved her crusade against the president from California to New Hampshire. Taitz personally filed a complaint in New Hampshire over the weekend arguing to formally remove President Obama from the state’s ballot.

The New Hampshire electoral governing body, unanimously turned down the complaint in a public  hearing.

But birthers are nothing if not persistent. Despite the unanimous vote against removing President Obama from the ballot because of allegations he is not a U.S. citizens, the small group of birthers erupted, charging the the governing body with treason and corruption.

Of those birthers present were several New Hampshire state representatives who had no problem offering up a new platform for Taitz.

As we get closer to the elections, and as the fringe of the right grows more discontent, expect to see more of this kind of nonsense. Consider it one in a list of possible distractions designed to take away from the fact that despite a year of campaigning and a year in office the right has failed to pass a single piece of legislation that furthers their purported interests in job creation.

I hope these A**holes keep this nonsense up 'till November 2012, it beats intellectual argument and, with a bit of luck, the country will realize we cannot allow them to run the country. Problem is, they voted George Bush in for a second term - that really frightens me, how on earth could that happen. Just what does a bunch of idiots have to do before we Americans see common sense.

Now I don't like the political behavior of the Republican Party, because they seem to feel that their religious beliefs are more important than anyone else who worships differently. And I don't care for their remarks about water-boarding or in regards to the Patriot Act. The reason being is that they go against the Constitution and The Bill of Rights, and they promote a "fearful" attitude throughout our country. I am a centrist by nature and I believe that we are all connected and all worthy of respect, but when it is not given to me, I will respond in kind, IF, I don't step back and think, first and foremost. I believe we all need to start speaking with intelligent dialogue and stop all this bigotry and hatred as it is not only non-productive, it is turning brothers and sisters against one another - and for what? What is gained by this - nothing for those of us who live under gov't rule - but plenty is gained by those in Congress who have much to lose if we do begin talking. They have no term limits, free privatized health care, full-pay lifetime retirement for 25 hrs. per week's work, PAC's (501C4's anonymous donations both in amount and who donated) with no charges of bribery, and a game plan that pits us all against one another while they keep collecting and working for big business. Like I said, I'm not for one or the other, but I am for tolerance and understanding those areas that we fear or question because it seems a better way to create peace in this world of

Ignorance is to the bone. The people who believe this nonsense will not be swayed by evidence; they are beyond the bounds of reason. Just ignore it.

John K, you're like a rampant disease: everywhere spewing your senseless comments fueled by too much beer.
Hey, the guy in the picture looks like your friend Jeffrey W, the fat redneck biker. Maybe you're the guy in the picture. Sounds like you can really relate!
