Happy Birthday, Mr. President

Today is President Obama's 48th birthday.

So let me put in my two cents on the controversy surrounding his birth certificate.

I think conservatives should let this one go. We gain nothing by pursuing it. There are far more egregious things the Obama Administration has done that warrant our attention and scrutiny. Those who insist on pursuing the matter of his birth certificate make conservatives vulnerable to charges of nativism and xenophobia.

Besides if there was any substance to it don't you think Hillary would have uncovered it?

President Obama should be judged by what he says and does on August 4, 2009 and beyond.

President Obama should not be judged by where he was in the world on August 4, 1961.

With that I would like to wish the President a happy birthday.

Glenn Beck (and those like him)

and underestimating the voting power of those who are not insured.
