Palin Not A Birther
I’m not sure how much the Palinistas and Birthers overlap, but I am suspecting that there is at least some, and those people are gonna be chagrined at this:
“Do you question his [Obama’s] faith and citizenship?” Palin was asked today during an onstage interview hostedby the Long Island Association. Her answer was brief and to the point.
“I don’t, and those are distractions,” she said to some applause. “What we’re concerned about is the economy. And we’re concerned about the policies coming out of his administration and what he believes in terms of biggovernment or private sector. So, no, the faith, the birth certificate, others can engage in that kind ofconversation. It’s distracting. It gets annoying and let’s just stick with what really matters.”
I happen to agree. The whole Birther and He’s-a-closet-Muslim things are merely distractions, and he’s playing them well–whether deliberately or accidentally–to distract a certain segment of the population from what he is doing to the economy, even if it only takes away part of their attention.
As a famous fiction book series said, the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing. And the main thing has gotta be getting our economy back in order and the debt and deficit under control. So kudos to Sarahcuda for recognizing that.
