I will tell you what scares the author of this blog and other liberals: they are afraid, deep down in their souls (so deep that they themselves may not even be aware of it), that Obama IS a fraud. That's why they seek to silence the "birthers," and why they're spending so much energy ridiculing the birthers, who, after all, are only seeking the truth. Since when is the seeking of TRUTH such a bad thing?
Deep down, most liberals are AFRAID that Obama really IS a fraud. If they didn't, they would not be spending so much energy trying to discredit the birthers.
It is not surprising that many people would not be the slightest bit bothered even if it were proven that Obama had defrauded the country by falsifying his birth records. For many people, FRAUD is a standard mode of operation. You must remember that SO MANY of the legislative bills liberals have managed to get passed and social policies that they have managed to get implemented have involved fraudulent means. The committing of fraud is not an exception among many liberals; it is the rule. Just look at ACORN.
Americans are rightfully concerned about Obama and are seeking ANY legitimate course of action to remove him from office -- NOT because he's a Democrat, NOT because he's black, and NOT because they especially care whether or not he was born in this country. Frankly, as long as his policies were not egregiously hurting the country, the birthers wouldn't even be worried about where he was born. MANY OF THE BIRTHERS VOTED FOR OBAMA. I AM A BIRTHER. I DID NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA, BUT I KNOW OTHER BIRTHERS WHO DID VOTE FOR OBAMA.
Because Obama's policies are so damaging to our country, the birthers are focusing on the "birth certificate" issue because proving that he defrauded the American people regarding his country of origin WOULD BE ONE WAY TO GET HIM OUT OF OFFICE NOW INSTEAD OF TWO YEARS FROM NOW. They want him out of office NOT because he's a Democrat, and NOT because he's black, but because his fiscal policies are bringing our country to its financial knees.
I did not vote for Barack Obama, because I suspected during the election that he would lead us to where we find ourselves today. You should also know that I noticed a tear in my eye upon seeing our first black president inaugurated, even though I vehemently disagreed with his policies. The tear in my eye was a warm, emotional HAPPY one -- not one of sadness or despair. His BLACKNESS did not bother me in the least. It was not a PLUS; it was not a MINUS. It was a moot issue. I would have joyfully voted for a Condoleezza Rice, or an Alan Keyes, or maybe a Colin Powell.
Of course, in the minds of many people, Condoleezza Rice and Alan Keyes do not qualify as being fully "black." I will tell you that these people are every bit as "black" as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, or anyone else who some might consider to be "really black." Legitimate, bona fide black people come in a VARIETY of packages, appearances, and characters, as do people of ANY ethnic origin. Each and every person of every color is UNIQUE, and their individuality should be respected. Shame on those of you who try to establish certain criteria that people must meet in order to be considered "truly black" or truly ANYTHING with regard to ethnicity. You are doing so ONLY to further your own narrow, self-serving agendas, political and otherwise.
