Greg Sargent has an excellent piece up tracking the reactions of the GOP and notes how many of them are not walking back the birfer nonsense:
Meanwhile, a number of leading Republican figures who have either endorsed birtherism or flirted with it are either refusing to say anything about today’s developments or are still insisting that Obama took too long to come clean.
John Boehner, by contrast, did suggest that it’s time to move on. His spokesman said today that this has “long been a settled issue.”
Until these good people step up and call out birtherism for what it is, we can only conclude that they are either too cowardly to challenge or alienate voters who remain wedded to their birther fantasies, or are hoping to continue capitalizing politically from the out-of-control hatred and paranoia that will continue to be directed at America’s first black president.
GOTCHA! ZING! BOOM!
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if all the news sources like the NY Times went broke and we only had Fox News, the Daily Caller, and Pajamas Media to provide information. Now I wonder how it could possibly be any worse.
