President Barack Obama has a birthday coming up soon. I know because I have his birth certificate right here showing that he was born on Aug. 4, 1961 at 7:24 p.m. on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. That’s part of the United States of America, in case you didn’t know.
Apparently some people don’t know and they are still questioning whether Obama is a natural born citizen and thus eligible to be president, like the crazy lady in this Youtube video who screeches at poor Congressman Michael Castle, a moderate Republican from Delaware, while he is trying to conduct a town meeting on health care issues.
The part where the crazy lady interrupts the meeting a second time and forces everyone to stand up and recite the Pledge of Allegiance is downright creepy.
But these “Birthers,” as they are becoming known, are becoming more and more predominant in the Republican Party. So much so that we now have Republican members of Congressman trying to appease them with legislation that would supposedly require future presidential candidates to “prove” their eligibility.
Chris Matthews on Hardball chews up and spits out this idiot Congressman from California who is sponsoring this bill:
But the crazy people aren’t going to go away that easily and they have prominent media figures like Rush Limbaugh, Liz Cheney and Lou Dobbs embracing their cause.
