In spite of the fact that Barack Obama has been elected twice and over 100 judges have tossed out every challenge to his tenure, the birthers and the loons keep on keeping on.
Most Americans have moved on from earlier dalliances with denials of the president’s biography. National opinion polls have shown increases over the past three years in the percentage of Americans who agree that Obama was born in the United States and that he is a Christian. But a persistent minority — between a tenth and a fifth in most polls — still believe he is Muslim, foreign-born or a socialist.
Those voters tend to be vehement opponents of Obama, and on Inauguration Day, they will not be at the party — and they’re still searching for ways to have the president declared illegitimate.
I really feel sorry for these poor souls. Their lives must really suck if this is all they have to live for.
By the way, what is wrong with being a Muslim, foreign-born, or a socialist?
