I don't know if there's any actual substance to the charges made about his birth, but I don't really care. He was fairly, though foolishly, elected, and if, by some strange circumstance he doesn't qualify as a natural born citizen, it's not that big of a deal.
If there is any proof that's he's not natural born, it will have to be absolutely rock solid in order for any action to even be considered.
And if such should ever happen, I think the blame falls squarely upon the liberal press that has not done its homework and continues not to do their homework in regard to Democrats.
Rasmussen's poll of President Obama's approval drops to -9. That is the best it has been since the first of May. 28% Strongly Approve while 37% Strongly Disapprove. It had been as high as -20 or so.
The 37% Strongly Disapprove is the lowest in 8 months.
Overall, 49% at least Somewhat Approve vs 50% who at least Somewhat Disapprove.
I believe that this is the first poll taken entirely after the McChrystal firing/resignation. Rasmussen uses a 3 day polling cycle.
The dismissal of McChrystal was "very comical."
Quote:Is that clown Steele still around??The dismissal of McChrystal was "very comical."
....just about everyone of all political stripes agreed that McCrystal had to go, and Obama got a nice bounce out of it.
That the GOP ever thought that Steele was a good idea is a albatross around their neck...that they dont get rid of him is another.
Michael Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee, drew fierce criticism on Friday after declaring at a party fund-raiser that the United States was on the wrong side of history with its conflict in Afghanistan, a military fight he called “a war of Obama’s choosing.”
You cannot dispute that I am totally correct, as is Steele to a certain extent.

We need to cut his legs out from under him

Erick Erickson, who runs the influential conservative blog Red State said: "Michael Steele must resign. He has lost all moral authority to lead the GOP."
Former South Carolina GOP chair Katon Dawson, who finished second to Steele in the race for the chairman's post early last year, said Steele should now be ousted, CNN reported. Dawson is a frequent critic of Steele but has not until now called for him to resign.
"The RNC should do the responsible thing and show Steele the door," Dawson told CNN. "Enough is enough."
So even though Steele speaks the truth about our prospects in Afghanistan, it's hardly tenable for the chairman to disagree so diametrically with the party he leads on such a big issue. He's got to go.
I write this more in sorrow than in anger. Steele has been a godsend to columnists worldwide -- he's the gift that keeps on giving -- and it's not at all in my self-interest to advocate that he depart the limelight. But I have to call it the way I see it, alas. Chairman Mike, did I hear you express a sudden desire to spend more time with your family?
