ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle admitted on Twitter and in a cable interview Friday that a Clinton staffer had indeed spread the rumor that President Barack Obama was born outside of the United States.

The admission came after a heated exchange Friday afternoon with Ari Fleischer, George W. Bush’s former spokesman, who was pressing Ms. Doyle for the truth that Mrs. Clinton’s 2008 campaign was responsible for creating a whisper campaign in the press that Mr. Obama was ineligible for the presidency.

Ms. Doyle told Mr. Feischer it was a “lie” that the campaign spread the rumors, but then admitted in the same tweet a 2008 staffer had indeed sent an email spreading the birther conspiracy.

  1. Besides being born in the USA it also required the parents to be US citizens at the time of birth. Neither Obama or Cruz qualified but the law be damned.

    1. Voted and I would be more than happy to do so, but since the horrific Patriot debacle with many complaining about this person or that, I have deleted all Patriot sites except the Confederate ones. :(

  3. My only question is what are they trying to divert our attention from with all this squirrel birther.

    Always watch the other hand.
