Trump 2016 and the Obama Birther Debate .

The result of the birther tactics .

The use of the birther tactic adopted by the republicans has had two main results,first it has convinced many simpleton republican voters that President Obama is not only an illegal alien that was able to bamboozle his way not only to fraudulently obtaining American citizenship but also to sneak his way into the White House.And second it has convinced many independents, moderate republicans and whatever small number of conservative democrats that the Republican Party is at this point in time controlled by extremist conspiracy theories believers and loons,who have no interest in presenting a conservative political alternative for the country,but instead their only purpose is to demonize a president that instills fear in them because he looks so different than them who are the real Americans that he has to be a Muslim foreigner.

So where do the Republiclowns go from here?Not to the White House that's for sure!

We have been hearing for years now,that if he had nothing to hide why not release the original long form birth certificate,this has not only served the purposes of the birthers but also gave political coverage for some mainstream republicans to say things like "i take him at his word" or "we've seen his certificate of live birth,so this would suggest he was born in Hawaii"and other comments of the sort that could still codedly leave the door open to suspicion from the loons and republiclowns.So, did the fact that he released the birth certificate end the controversy?Of course not, it just shifted and transformed from those who say this is probably fake because it took so long to release, to others who say ,he's irresponsible, why didn't he release it before so there wouldn't have been any controversy, which is preposterous and hypocritical because we have seen that the real objective has been to delegitimize the presidency of a person of color that they think was only able to reach such a high position due to the influence of affirmative action which they despise and see as reverse discrimination in detriment of white people.Of course this is not the belief of most or even a majority of the republican voters,but it serves the purposes of the republican machine to define the president as illegitimate,different than" us", and anti american, and if that's all they have they'll use it..Are the leaders of the republican party unaware of how their whole party's looking and sounding these days? I don't think so but there's not much they can do about it, since the right wing nuts have taken the party over, and whoever tries to take on the teapartiers and their mouthpieces in the right wing media is condemned to instant irrelevancy and or public humiliation via Limbaughpology.What do I think is the strategy of the adults in the party?Simple,they will wait it out, they know the teapartiers and the right wing nuts will self destruct and carry the party down with them to great electoral losses and only then will they be able to rescue and rebuild the Republican party.

you are absolutely right as in most things in life moderation is best,although nowadays the people who run the republican party have either expelled or rendered irrelevant the moderates of the party,much more fruitful results are obtained when the moderates in both parties are stronger,the ideologically fanatic righties and lefties tend to cancel each other out.That is my opinion

FitnezzJim I couldn't agree with you more. You summed it up so much better than I did. mio cid, I again find myself in agreement with you as well. I'm not checked out, and agree that vigilence is 100% OUR responsibility. I just think the ruling parties have failed, and are expelling thier intelligencia. My desire is that someone (with more brains and solutions than me) will start a new movement with the idea of offering more choices and equalizing things. I'm not out to attack the left or the right. I'm out to put them on equal ground with moderates so they are forced to compromise and will in turn get things done.

i agree with you that to a large extent both parties seek power to the benefit of their interest groups, but as imperfect as it may seem we have no one to blame but ourselves for whatever incompetence or corruptness there is in our government because at the end of the day we live in the best and biggest democracy the world has ever known and if things are not better it's because we don't participate enough not because the politicians are corrupt because we vote for inept or corrupt politicians, first of all and because not enough of us vote against the inept or corrupt politicians think that only about half the eligible population votes in any given election,so we definitely have the option to vote for the best and the brightest but we choose not to do so,and if we are bamboozled once shame on you but twenty times....., the alternatives to our system are far worse because the illuminatti who preach against the politicians and the government in general both from the left calling this a burgeois democracy or from the right saying that the government is the root of all evil and only the market and the capital unchecked and with no restrains should rule our lives have not only failed miserably wherever they have governed but they have brutalized their people and caused mass losses of lives.

It seems to me that the rise of the two party system during the 20th century has resulted in two rather large groups of kindergartner mentality finger-pointers and name-callers who seek soley to achieve power so that 'they' can make the rules.

This not government according to 'we the people' representation, it is government by he who temporarily bamboozles the voters best.

Theanalogkid, if you study the politics of the 20th century you will see that the right has always used what you are saying as a means of remaining or gaining power by fomenting apathy, discouragement of the working masses and cheap populism, to pit one working man against another and that discourse about how all politicians are corrupt so people won't vote en mass against them while they concentrate wealth in fewer hands.i'm a ideologically socialist in a 100% fashion meaning i don't believe in the dictatorship of the proletariat instead i believe democracy should be cherished and protected but the fact that these are my beliefs shouldn't prevent me for voting whoever is most beneficial for the working man , the middle class and the country as a whole.

Republican'ts & Democraps! Hurray for our team! They both stink. When you put them in power they stink even more! The two party system has failed. I respect your opinion and frankly even agree with it, but until there is another party to balance the other two out.... we're screwed.

You are right. The Far Right are totally irrational when it comes to President Obama and will never accept obvious truth and will create new lies and conspiracies. They will take the GOP down along with Ryan's budget plan. I am quite glad. Bring on 2012. Great Hub.
