Obama's birth certificate

12 posts in this topic

Why is CNN promoting right-wing paranoid conspiracy theories about

President Obama's birth certificate?

The fringe ideas of the so-called "birthers" have been thoroughly

debunked.1 But CNN host Lou Dobbs perpetuates these myths by constantly

talking about them on his shows and asserting that Obama still needs to

"produce a birth certificate."

This is not responsible journalism. Our friends at Media Matters have

launched a campaign calling on CNN to address its Lou Dobbs problem--but a

lot of us are going to have to speak out in order to get CNN's attention.

Clicking here will add your name to their petition:

http://civ.moveon.org/stopdobbs/o.pl?id=16689-11954441-sH9OFex&t=7

The petition reads:

Dobbs' relentless promotion of outlandish conspiracy theories about

President Barack Obama's birth certificate seriously damages CNN's

credibility. It is time for "The Most Trusted Name in News" to prove it

deserves viewers' trust. We the undersigned demand CNN address its

Lou Dobbs problem in a credible manner.

Numerous reporters, including CNN's own hosts, have debunked the idea that

Obama wasn't really born in the U.S.2

Nevertheless, Dobbs has repeatedly claimed on both his television and

radio shows that the birth certificate the president posted online more

than a year ago has "some issues"3--and lashed out at "lily-livered

lefties" who criticized him.

CNN's reputation is on the line. Their president, Jon Klein, has admitted

that anyone who "is not convinced doesn't really have a legitimate

beef"--but he has refused to correct the situation.4

CNN needs to hear that allowing Dobbs' to promote "birther" conspiracy

theories is simply irresponsible. Please sign the petition by clicking

Thank you for your help in holding CNN accountable.

why should he produce a birth certificate?

He was elected by fair democratic vote, everything else is moot

Because if he was found out to be not born in this country he would be removed immediately, and Biden would become president. It wouldn't be a moot point at all if it was a real issue.

I like the electoral college system, but I think it needs to be fixed. I think Cali, FL, TX and NY should have a good 10-15 points shaved off their values and distribute 1-2 points each to the bottom 30 states. That way Canidates spend time in more states then just those 4.

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeennnnnnnnnnnno I wouldn't go that way :P

I'm more inclined to want it to be like...

IQs by state and how they voted in 2004

IQ Scale

Over 140 - Genius or almost genius

120 - 140 - Very superior intelligence

110 - 119 - Superior intelligence

90 - 109 - Average or normal intelligence

80 - 89 - Dullness

70 - 79 - Borderline deficiency in intelligence

Under 70 - Feeble-mindedness

smart ppl are our future :bingo:

I never really understood why the voting process was done by states as opposed to each individual getting their vote counted as 1

Our voting system is way outdated. At one point in time it actually made sense, but now, regardless if the electoral system stays in place or not, its not entirely fair.

Like when Al Gore ran for president against George Bush. Al Gore got more votes than Bush, but was not elected president because he didn't get the most electoral college votes. It all boiled down to who would win Florida and guess what, Bush's brother was governor of the state of Florida. *coughstolenelectioncough*

Yeah, if they keep the electoral college they should divide the points up more. *kicks Nebraska and Maine for being able to split their electoral college votes*
