What follows below, indented, is an email I received and then my responses.
No news outlets, reputable or not, have seen his long form birth certificate—until this week.
In all my posts I say that the “birther” issue is a lot more than where he was born. It’s whether Obama is constitutionally eligible or has committed a fraud. I guess you haven’t been reading. Furthermore, the bottom line for me is to fight against Obama’s reelection. I believe that harping on his lack of disclosure, I am contributing to that. When a person says MOVE ON, I am reminded of MOVEON.ORG. Is there any association?
I have no intention of swaying the left. I want to sway people in the center or the Independents. Inherent in any attack is the need to take a side and marshal the facts and arguments. You can’t fight from the center. You are suggesting the Left is unable to select the wheat from the chaff or that they can’t evaluate the facts and arguments because they come from the Right. The Left I am sure includes you.
Obama supporters must be deaf, blind or stupid. Instead of attacking my credibility because I present arguments from the right, why not defend your faith in Obama by making your case? Why refuse to listen to my case with an open mind?
Why is Obama’s constitutional eligibility not a “real issue”? I don’t limit myself to that issue, not by a long shot. I fight against multilateralism, multiculturalism, big government, big spending, big unions and multitudinous czars. I fight against his kissing up to Islam, Muslims and the Brotherhood. I fight against his policy of engagement and his world view. And most important, I fight against his attack on Israel.
I don’t want him to come to Israel. It is a non-issue. All I care about is his actions. A trip to Israel is cosmetic. Besides he has a very clear policy towards Israel You are simply in denial. He wants to screw us, to force us to capitulate, does he not? What’s unclear about that?
Give me an example. Besides, what’s wrong with hating the bad?
Sorry, can’t oblige. Whether I am convincing or not is irrelevant. What’s wrong with polarization? At election time, one pole will win. The people will have a clear cut choice. Between right and wrong or good and bad, there is no center. It’s one or the other.
I believe that Gov. Palin is a viable candidate. She has a proven track record of leadership, character and patriotism. If she doesn’t win, it will because she has been demonized by the Left, by the MSM and even by the GOP establishment. For that matter Israel is also demonized by the Left and the MSM to say nothing of the Muslims.
I am curious. Do you want Israel to be pushed to capitulate or supported so she can make the choices which are best for her?
