Birther Joseph Farah: Eligibility Questions (About People Other Than Obama) Are A Distraction
Given his willingness to overlook overwhelming evidence to the contrary, it’s difficult to believe that Farah would be such a “strong advocate” of Obama’s purported ineligibility if he did not “detest everything for which he stands.” As for Farah’s claim that his assertion “is based on fact, on reality, on verifiable truth,” this ignores reality as well. For example, a new book debunks many birther claims, and one prominent birther, Philip Berg, has shot down the WND-promoted idea that Obama is using a fake Social Security number. Curiously, WND has yet to report on either of these things, and WND’s Jerome Corsi has refused to debate the book’s author about his conclusions.
Farah then complains again that questions about Romney’s eligibility is becoming a distraction to “my team at WND”:
So can you please stop writing to me and to my team at WND with suggestions that Mitt Romney fails the constitutional eligibility test? It’s not true.
I don’t think he gets a passing grade on understanding and interpreting the Constitution, but - unfortunately, from my perspective - he passes the litmus test for serving as president.
Can we move on to more substantive issues in this campaign?
Presumably, Farah and his WND team don’t think eligibility questions about Obama are a distraction from “more substantive issues,” even though no factual basis for them exists.
