Mitt Romney has jumped with both feet into a foreign policy fight with Barack Obama. A fight waged with false attacks, by the way, but hey, he’s not going to let his campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.

The most recent FoxNews poll shows that not only does Obama beat Romney, handily, on the question of who voters trust to handle foreign policy, Obama is leading by 22 points among independents on the question of foreign policy:

Voters don’t trust Mitt Romney on foreign policy, so why go there?

My theory is that this isn’t really about […]

3,520 days after Americans woke up to witness the largest mass casualty of a terrorist attack in our world history, we woke up to the news that the Administration of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner had killed Osama bin Laden, a mastermind and chief financier of the global terrorist network.

Last night, President Obama informed former President George Bush about the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden.  President Bush released this statement:

Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, […]

Today, President Obama released the long-form of his birth certificate which, under Hawaii law, they ordinarily don’t even provide to to people. Apparently, last Monday, the President hired a personal attorney to beg the Hawaii Department of Health to release his long-form birth certificate simply to put it to rest.

And as Wonkette pointed out, the heart of birtherism-World Net Daily-didn’t miss a beat, and declared that the certificate validated their view that Obama was ineligible to be President because the certificate says his dad was not an United States citizen—which nobody has ever claimed otherwise.

Trump moved onto to his next crusade—demanding that Obama release his college records, for some reason. It proves you can’t kill birtherism, it’ll just evolve itself around the facts and continue…

Since at least 2007, we Ohio bloggers have documented in pretty good detail the baiting of the neanderthal, teabagging, racist base of Republicanism.? It hasn’t stopped, it’s just gotten more sophisticated, as Southern strategies tend to do – in fact, the email smear narrative is now entirely adopted by the RNC, Republicans in Congress, and now Liz Cheney.? Which is why it’s a bit quaint for Eugene Robinson to finally catch onto it, and still, even now, miss what is going on.

This is really part of a death-by-a-thousand-cuts strategy to wound President Obama politically. The charge of softness […]

Big Blue Embarassment

On September 7, 2009 By

Yes, this fucking embarrasses me:

A new Research 2000 poll released by Daily Kos shows that only a slight majority ? 51 percent ? of Kentuckians believe President Obama was born in this country. Twenty percent said they think he was born elsewhere, and 29 percent said they weren?t sure. ?While 94 percent of black respondents said they think Obama was born in the United States, only 45 percent of white respondents were certain that he was born here.?

Enjoy your Birther base, assholes.

Among Republicans only, 42% think he?s an American citizen, 28% do not, and 30% are not sure.

All your base are belong to you!

The idiots were once useful…and so damned clingy!

So let’s review. 28% of all GOPers are Birthers. Another 30% are not yet decided. That’s a pretty hefty part of your base, there. That sucks.


Another thing to point out is that Birtherism is heavily concentrated in the South. Only 47% of Southerners say Obama was born in the United States, 23% say he was not, […]

Unreal. It’s Pavlovian at this point with these people. Automatically go for the Barack Hussein Obama. Even while slamming Birthers!

I wanted to do a quick snap poll of Ohio’s “thoughtful center-right bloggers”. How many of you are birthers and how many of you are conservatives? Or both?

Just wondering. Please feel free to comment (even those of you previously banned). This is a very serious inquiry into the current psyche of the Ohio wingnut blogger base.

Thank you,


PS – If you answer birther, or think there is any hint of a doubt in your mind about possibly being a birther, Bill Pascoe wants you to stop!
