Well no one agrees with anyone else 100% of the time, so why should it be any different when someone you almost always agree with comes at you with something like this:
Just like the notorious 'seminar callers' Rush talks about, there is a new type of seminar caller out there trying to get on talk radio: the birther. Sure, there are plenty of idiots out there who actually think Barack Obama was not born in the United States and this is a way to get him impeached. But most reasonable people don't believe that. It's so ridiculous that it's actually a good distraction for Obama, because it's an easy win for him and distracts from the real issues.Now I only scanned the transcript, but I did not see anything about there being any legal proof displayed of where Mr. Obama was born, nor did I see any explanation as to why Mr. Obama has spent a cool mill to suppress this information. I also saw absolutely nothing whatsoever explaining how the child of a known foreign national could qualify as a natural born citizen.
So for my part, I disagree with Mr. Beck on this point, and would appreciate a retraction of his calling those who wish to defend the Constitution from interlopers unreasonable and ridiculous.
If Mr. Beck is so sure Obama is legit, maybe HE can get Mr. Obama to cough up proof of his natural born citizenship (proof of domestic birth and a statement from one or more of the Founders justifying foreign parentage in a natural born citizen), in which case I will gladly recognize Mr. Obama as President of the United States. Until someone does, then I will stand up in defense of those who are trying, regardless of the ignorance of the otherwise great Glenn Beck.
