Really? You can't think of a prominent American that most conservatives repeatedly claimed wasn't American? Did your dope dealer drop a brick of cocaine on your head?
No. And that fact might just maybe open your eyes to the fact that conservatives don't put the same weight on things that you think we do. I honestly had no clue who you were talking about in your previous post.
Um. But for the record, a small percentage of conservatives had some questions as to verification of Obama's natural born citizenship status
, specifically and only in the context of meeting the constitutional requirements to hold the one and only office in the country which requires said status (ie: POTUS). Which is not at all to say they thought he was "not an American", as you claimed. Most (like myself) didn't doubt that he did meet the requirement, but felt that he had failed to provide sufficient documentation to verify that fact, once the question was raised. A small subset of that group were convinced that he didn't meet the requirement, and an even smaller subset of that group were convinced that he wasn't even a citizen.
So yeah. Forgive me for not leaping to the farther reaches of "nutter".
As usual, you just dodge and dance and ignore and handwave so you can keep claiming that the conservatives have the moral high ground. PROTIP: They don't.
Yeah. We mostly do. The sheer effort expended to continually misrepresent our actual positions and actions by the Left is testament to that fact. How many threads did we have on this very subject? I was not once not clear about my position. I, in fact, took great pains to explain the difference between whether he was a citizen versus a natural born citizen, and why it mattered. But you just chucked that all out the window, didn't you?
PROTIP #2: I've told you about a jillion times I'm not a liberal. I get that you think anyone to the left of you must be a raging commie/socialist, but still. See, I'm aware that the left and the right do "bad" things. The reason I generally pick on the right is because of the massive hypocrisy they display on a regular basis. Hypocrisy you adamantly, stubbornly, religiously deny exists.
Hypocrisy that only exists if you buy the strawman version of conservatives created by the Left. So you may not be a liberal, but you certainly buy their BS hook, line, and sinker.
I'm sorry your soul is so empty. I'm saddened that you care so little for anything outside yourself. Perhaps, one day, you'll learn to value people as people and not things.
And here come the personal attacks. Right on schedule. It's like there's a script you follow or something:
1. Make wild accusation
2. When it's refuted, deny it and demand proof.
3. When proof is provided, argue it's not sufficient.
4. When even more proof and solid argument is provided, start calling the other guy names.
You can't counter the position so you attack the person. You really don't get that this only shows your own weakness, right? If you have a point to make, make it. If your strongest argument is to attack or make fun of the other guy, you've already lost. And if you had a decent amount of self reflection, you might just ask why you hold the position(s) you do in the first place.
