y'know, now that i've had some time to think it over, i think you're absolutely right — the goalposts do look so much better over here ...
once BO leaves office, however, there will be a thorough public discussion and a race by *renowned* journalists to publish blockbuster exposes.
WRT rush [limbaugh] — IMHO he may be a closet birther but does not have access to irrefutable evidence and will not risk his reputation at this point. BUT once BO becomes a former POTUS — rush's career will be sustained & enhanced by bringing up all the clues that were ignored by the congress and the media with special reference to his, rush's *prescience* in the matter.
be patient grasshopper! The Truth will eventually come out! it always does ......
i believe that obama will be turned out in 2012, and if re-elected, someone in the congress will object, forcing obama to withdraw or be forced to defend the indefenseable in court.
as an alternate scenario, i believe that obama will not run for re-election (placing him squarely in the ranks of failed preidencies by that simple act alone) and, after the fact, a court case will be allowed to rise up the system to the USSC court who will re-affirm the constitutional intent and definition of NBC as born of the soil to 2 citizens ..... negating obama’s presidency in toto ......rush will strike when the iron is hot.
i pray that you are right. it's been more than 2 years. it's like "waiting for godot".
i stopped holding my breath long ago.
semper fi, birfistani!
