    She said as recently as a month ago that she “took the President at his word,” so I guess there will be an appropriate level of blog posts about her flip flop?

    And of course of the stupidity of her being a birther.

    I say its because millions of these kind of people voted for him!!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7l-pEBYeLI&feature=youtu.be

    Ol’ Michele’s pretty good lookin’, for a lunatic.

    “Ol’ Michele’s pretty good lookin’, for a lunatic.”

    So’s the former half-term governor of Alaska. What’s your point?

  9. Wiley Stoner says:

    Why call her names like lunatic when all that needs to be done is to answer the question. STFU and prove it. Most of those who call birthers lunatics are taking the word of a proven liar as truth. We don’t know what grades he got in any of his schools. Hell, we don’t even know what classes he took in college. This affirmative action President might and easily could have a double diget IQ, like most of his supporters. Obama is one of those people from his time who got by on mouth alone.

  10. Wiley Stoner says:

    Just to prove the sitting President is not very intelligent. Standard and Poorer warned the U.S. is about to lose its AAA bond rating, and the Obama administration calls it politics. You just cannot fix stupid.

  11. Greg says:

    Wiley…
    I typically am just a devoted reader on this site, but I just cant hold my tongue here.

    I agree ‘You cant fix stupid’ and to go a bit further ‘Stupid should hurt’.
    In your case fixing it is easy…. change the channel, just try not to hurt yourself doing so, but I have a feeling you’ll break a finger or wrist, or stub a toe or something.

    The question has been answered many times, some just refuse to believe it. I guess that includes you.

    And ‘Affirmative action’ president… care to explain?

  12. G.A.Phillips says:

    Hey Doug. Any thoughts on what Christine O’Donnell thinks about Obama’s lack of transparency concerning his birth certificate? Or did I miss those posts?

    Just to prove the sitting President is not very intelligent. Standard and Poorer warned the U.S. is about to lose its AAA bond rating, and the Obama administration calls it politics. You just cannot fix stupid.

    Plus he supports murdering 1 out of every 2 black babies and funding it, and many many many other stupid and evil things….but I like to point out the worst!

    You just can’t fix liberal. I don’t think there is much hope for finding parts for the people that act like them most of the time either…

    my best GA impersonation:

    You just can’t fix liberal.

    Cause you don’t have to!!! LOL!

  14. Scott says:

    Does anyone care what Christine O’Donnell thinks? Besides you of course G.A..

  15. George says:

    Understandable. She’s in a tight competition with Jesse Jackson for the silliest statement prize … so far its neck and neck.

  16. Southern Hoosier says:

    I love it! Put up a good birther story and all the non-birthers just fall all over themselves defending Comrade Obama, the Great One.

  17. Scott says:

    @Southern Hoosier

    Huh?

  18. Southern Hoosier says:

    @Scott
    Did you ever notice the comments on here attacking anyone that questions Comrade Obama’s birth?

    And of course of the stupidity of her being a birther.

    Nothing so funny as liberals when one of their icons is attacked

    Hint: its not just liberals who think the whole birther thing is as kooky as the truther thing.

    Aw c’mon. You want funny? Lets get Doug to write a post about Palin -doesn’t even matter what he says – you won’t believe the hilarious stuff that comes crawling out of the woodwork!

    To Wiley Stoner–If you really believe that Obama is stupid you are either deaf, dumb, blind or racist, or some combination of the four. You may dislike his poltics or his policies, but there is simply no disputing the fact that this is one very smart guy.

    If his books, speeches and debates (both as a candidate in the primaries and in the general election) don’t demonstrate this to your satisfaction, nothing will.

  22. Neil Hudelson says:

    Wow, not a single commentor mentions Obama, and SH interprets that as…falling all over each other to defend Obama.

    Poor SH. It must be so hard viewing the world through only one lense.

  23. Scott says:

    @Southern Hoosier, It was the defending Comrade Obama, the Great One part that had me confused. I didn’t see anyone doing that. Every mention of Comrade Obama, the Great One that I saw was rather negative.

    I was doing my best to be blatantly negative.

    Neil this story is nothing. Check out some of the other birther stories on here. The comments run on and on. Plenty of attacks and name calling.

    This one very smart guy ranks somewhere below GW.

    Yes Michelle, and Lexington and Concord is in New Hampshire, and God told you that she doesn’t like gays. How does the so-called republican party come to embrace these idiots as leaders? Trump/Bachmann ’12 – You’re Hired!!!

  28. jwest says:

    Norm,

    Do you think Obama is searching the 57 states for a language course that teaches “Austrian”?

    Perhaps what you wrote was just snark to point out that anyone can misspeak…but, when you can find anyone, outside of people like you, who think that the president’s intelligence is comparable to Michelle Bachmann’s, do let us know…
