I believe the buzzword recommended by the RNC is socialist not marxist. Remember....socialist...socialist...socialist....

I'm in no way a BO supporter and I in no way think that he was not born in the U.S. - that's just silly.

This is a red herring, (look at the source, NPR) no one that has all of their teeth are buying this. If there was any credence to it, Hilary's campaign would have found it.

Great article describing the incredible transformation of the GOP these days. I especially agree with this statement:

"With midterm elections coming up, and Obama losing some momentum, this would be a perfect opportunity for the Republicans to move to the middle, or [for the GOP to] rebrand itself as the party of competence," Fenster says.

"To the extent they become obsessed with marginal, complicated issues like birth certificates, it will be more difficult for them to run strong especially in 2012," he says.

There is golden opportunity here for the GOP to nuke Obama by projecting themselves as calm, competent centrists who lean a bit right on some issues. I've been saying this for months. But they are so busy screaming about marxism, socialism, birthplace, racism, destroying capitalism blah blah blah that they can't see it.

It warms my heart to see the GOP die - killed by its own hand. The more they scream and roar their strange slogans and conspiracy theories, the deeper the deluded faithful plunge the dagger into the heart of the GOP.

A centerist candidate got his ass kicked last fall, a true conservative is the real answer.

Do you really wonder why Republicans would hesitate to take your advice?

I love it. It just keeps getting better. At this rate, soon even Palin will not be "conservative enough".

All the time. And am grateful they do not.

BTW I think there may be something to this birther thing.
