Obama chides birthers

President Barack Obama this morning gave an offhanded swipe to the birther movement in remarks he made before the National Prayer Breakfast.

“Now I am the first to confess I am not always right, Michelle will testify to that,” Obama said to chuckles. “But surely you can question my politics without questioning my faith, or for that matter, my citizenship.”

It was a rare display of annoyance about the continued insistence by the unorganized group of Obama critics known as the birthers. Laguna Niguel lawyer Orly Taitz has been crusading to get the president’s election overturned because she believes his birth certificate is a fake and he was actually born in Kenya.

Obama made the allusion to the questions about his birth – despite the proof the Hawaiian officials have presented that he was born there – as he was talking about the need for more civility in Washington. He said politicians could “disagree without being disagreeable.”

    We won the election and now these sore losers will continue to spew your hate with lies. The way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked lies, then, and only then, you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called facts that they present. Let’s face it no one will go along with you until you guys win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. Keep plucking that chicken.
