Shepard Smith, host of "Studio B" on Fox News Channel, called those of us who question Dear Leader's eligibility with regards to his birth status as 'crazies', according to World Net Daily.
In an interview with Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center (uber liberal organization) on the topic of the Holocaust Memorial Museum shooting, dear Shep said:
"There are these crazies out there who want to pretend [Obama's] not a citizen of the United States, who want to pretend that his religion is something they see as in some way troublesome to them and all of us. And there is a group perpetuating this thought, and there is a culture to which you can attach yourself very easily through the Internet. ... We know it's absolutely – there is no truth whatsoever – zero – to any of those ideas, yet they live within the computer and they fester in people's minds."
A few hours after making this bone-headed statement, Glenn Beck, also a Fox News personality, summed it up nicely. "This is not the work of right-wing conservatives." Amen, brother!
I for one will not be tuning in to Studio B with Shepard Smith anymore. Doesn't he realize just how many viewers he has now turned away?
Hey Shep! Common sense ideas may be festering in my mind, but at least I'm not a closet liberal as you are appearing to be. I welcome honest, intelligent, and respectful debate. And if you are so sure that there is no truth to the eligibility issue, why not go to Dear Leader and tell him just to produce the long-form birth certificate? You are not who I thought you were if you truly believe we are all crazies. Shame on you.
Smith's remarks about how the right sees Obamarx's religion as a threat are dead wrong. We all know that Obama has no religious principles. If anything, he is a Muslim. Anyone out there who can prove me wrong, please respectfully do so. One thing for sure: he is not a Christian.
I wonder what form of "Oh, crap!" he will use when the one TRUE Messiah returns.
Btw...did anyone notice I put Shep's image on the LEFT side of this post? :-D
