From Margaret “Ducky” Hemenway, in response to Donald Trump’s call out of NYT nebbish Gail Collins which I posted earlier today (Damn! They’re even bigger than I thought!):
As to the “controlled opposition” in Congress- you need to find your spines, collectively- everyone is SICK of Republican complicity in this sweeping Obama records cover-up. You are permitting loudmouthed, lying leftwingers- from Chris Matthews to Anderson Cooper and Keith Olbermann (to include Bill O’Reilly who thinks it’s OK for little leaguers to have to produce their birth certificates but Obama gets a pass)- to define your operational parameters.
HOW CAN WE HAVE A SITTING PRESIDENT WHO SAID HE WAS BORN IN HAWAII IN A HOSPITAL- BUT CAN’T COUGH UP A HOSPITAL NAME OR ATTENDING PHYSICIAN?
I don’t want to hear anymore BS about how the party is going to fight Obama on the issues- they’ve LOST every fight from auto company seizures, stimulus bill, DADT Repeal, a new START treaty which advantages the Russians, to financial regulation– the Constitution & rule of law is WORTH FIGHTING OVER and it’s your OBLIGATION to defend the Constitution. It’s a fundamental obligation of citizenship– and an even greater obligation of elected leaders who swore oaths to uphold the Constitution.
To have someone like Marco Rubio- who knows Cuba was seized by a communist usurper– suggest this isn’t an issue, is shocking– most of the Cubans understand freedom even better than many Americans because they’ve lived under the boot. The Republican party ignoring this controversy (which isn’t going away, folks!) just shows how out of touch, elitist and RINO-dominated the GOP has become. Nixon was pushed from office b/c of a cover-up– I didn’t hear the left saying then they wanted to fight Nixon “on the issues” or that Vietnam was more important! That’s b/c the Democrats understand POWER. I thought the Republicans understood PRINCIPLES.
Obama promised transparency- and promptly sealed ALL his citizenship-related records. If he’s illegally serving- and conspired to hide all his records to conceal his actual place of birth- and IF he was born in Kenya– then he’s committed the biggest fraud in US political history– and must be removed from office. The Republican Party, otherwise, is guilty of collaboration.
That Donald Trump has emerged as the only vertebrate in American politics today (other than REP Bill Posey, his HR 1503 cosponsors and scores of state eligibility legislators)- is a stunning indictment of the Republican Party brand at the federal level.
