Sarah Palin, Karl Rove and other Republicans

President Obama who has had his Religion and whether or not he was even born in this country has some unlikely supporters or defenders I should say. Sarah Palin " Those are Distractions. What we're concerned about is the economy. And we're concerned about politics coming out of the Administration." The questions about him being Muslim or where he was born are "Annoying" Karl Rove jumps in to state that Republicans need to distance themselves from these conspiracy groups. Also (Republicans) need to be careful about getting these people to high of a profile with out setting the record straight. "Barack Obama is a citizen of the country." Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz "We ought to get off this kick." So it seems that even the Republicans are saying Birthers are crazy people. I have to say I didn't expect Sarah Palin or Karl Rove to actually come to the defense of Obama on these issues. I have to give them props for this. It will be interesting to see what the birthers respond to this as being. So what do you think of this?

John Boehner and Michelle Bachmann have also said they believe he was born in this country and that they believe he's a Christian.

Well that's good I can't believe though Karl Rove has a brain for things besides destruction and well other craziness. As for Bachmann I think that is some of the smartest things she has supported. I am glad the GOP isn't going overboard and well shooting themselves in the foot for 2012. I mean the GOP already has its fair share of Image issues they don't need to tac this crazy stuff to them. They might even try to run a person who has a chance of wining not really I think they are going to get palin to run so they can get her out of their hair

Boehner is supposed to be the leader of the House. He's been praised here for laying down the law which led to the resignation of Chris Lee after online pictures he took of himself surfaced. As a leader he should be willing to let it be known to the other Republicans in the House that talk of the President's birth certificate and citizenship is, as David Gregory accurately put it, "crazy talk"!

Well have any republicans in the house been responsible for this crazy talk? I just don't think it's Boehner's responsibility to quash every wacknut out there that believes conspiracies about Obama any more than it was Nanci Pelosi's job to quash conspiracy theories about Bush. By the way, how many times did Nanci Pelosi defend Bush against the ridiculous attacks that he masterminded 9-11 himself?
