Did The McCain Campaign Create The Birther Monster

Is the McCain campaign responsible for the "birther" headache that has landed in the lap of many republicans in congress? You can see how reluctant they are to say flat out that President Obama is a U.S. citizen. Instead they hem and haw over the question so as not to freak out the far right conspiracy theorists in their party.

Did Sarah Plain and The Fox News Channel create this monster for the Republicans with their relentless claims of Obama being a Muslum, a radical, an socialists, attending a medrasa, palling around with a terrorists. Did Sean Hannity and the talking heads at Fox take it one "terrorist fist-jab" too far? - Survey says YES!

However, what was said and done during the 2008 presidential election will make their current rhetoric the equavalent of a bad hair day. I think that the likes of Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, etal have failed to realize that the country has grown a brain and is no longer suseptable to such unsophistocated propaganda.

It's like an old safe-cracker getting out of prison after 40 years and thinking that he can just drop down through the ceiling at First National to crack a safe. Totally unaware that infa-red laser beams and motion sensors have taken the place of the bells, batteries, and wires that he was once a master of defeating. It's like watching my grandpa who built the two-story house that he lives in trying to navagate his way through the menu of an IPod.

I wonder if these well-paid antagonists are even aware that the monster they created has nothing to do with a birth certificate, but rather the inability of a biggoted few to accept the fact that a black man is really the President of The United States. You can click your heels until your blue in the face Dorothy, but you'll still be right where you are. In good old 2009 with one Barack Hussien Obama, a black man as the leader of the free world. To quote Bill O'Reilly when he was referring to George W. Bush:

"Weather you like it or not, he is the President of The United States and we all have an obligation to support him or shut up!"

I wish that Obama would sign an executive order suspending congressional health care until they can draft a bill worthy of his signature. These people certainly earn enough money to go out and purchase medical insurance like the rest of us. After all, it is the best "health care" in the world. The fact that they don't call it medical insurance speaks volumes because that's what it is and it has nothing to do with caring about anyones health. It's no different then auto insurance except instead of refering you to an auto mechanic or body shop, they refer you to a doctor or a specialists. Instead of meeting your deductable, they hit you with a Co-Pay everytime you see the doctor.

In the the past 7 years I have handed Kaiser-Permenente $31,752 in premiums and all that I have to show for it is 7 annual check-ups, repair of two broken fingers, and 18 stitches on my right ankle. I must be their definition of the optimun customer, but inspite of the payment to service ratio between us, I'm still baffled as to why my premiuns keep increasing. You don't think I'm getting ripped off, do you?
