Note the “definitely” & “born in the US” – not born in Hawaii. There are no question about barry’s eligibility.
*Dems vs Inds vs Reps surveyed is a tad skewed innit?

DO YOU THINK OBAMA WAS DEFINITELY BORN IN THE US?
Only 64% of Democrats think he was definitely born in the US and 15% think he was probably or definitely born in another country.
And only 42% of Americans overall are definitely born in the US…so why it is we only hear about Republicans?
*And if you look at the raw numbers instead of the deceptive percentages – just as many Independents (115/398) as Republicans (117/285) think he was probably or definitely born in another country.
Here’s how Chris Matthews displayed the results (above is the only question and could easily have been put up in toto) during his rant against the birthers, who he says want to “assassinate [barry] with their lies”.
And here, again, CNN proves they have no understanding who the birthers are:
A group of true believers, known as “Birthers,” have pressed the idea that Obama was born in another country – some say in his father’s homeland of Kenya. By their claims, Obama is constitutionally ineligible to serve as president.
Birthers include those who believe barry was born in Hawaii but still ineligible to serve. The issue has always been and still is – barry has not proven he is Constitutionally eligible to serve as POTUS and the press has not even asked him to.
They get the title of the COLB wrong even though they included a huge image of it.
Hawaii has released a copy of the president’s birth certificate – officially called a “certificate of live birth.”
As you can see it’s a Certification of Live Birth – which is not a birth certificate.
And then they outright lie about Gov Lingle:
President Obama’s birth certificate has been certified authentic by the Republican governor of Hawaii.
No it hasn’t. Read what she said.
Interesting quote from the WH that I don’t think I’ve seen.
The White House has called doubts that Obama was born in Hawaii “fictional nonsense.”
Here they tie the vexatious birther bill only to barry’s birth certificate requests that were so massive they were receiving 20 emails a week.
But questions persist. So much that in May, Hawaii passed a law that allows state agencies to ignore repeated requests to view government records, including the president’s birth document.
And this craziness when they can’t even get the facts in this post correct.
CNN and other news organizations have thoroughly debunked the rumors.
If that is true…can CNN tell us what hospital barry was birthed in?
And what type of news network chooses to believe a 49 y/o birth notice when they could just as easily hold the 49 y/o document that the notice was based on.
