Bill Clinton rips ‘birthers’

Former President Bill Clinton is taking the so-called “birthers” to task for ignoring evidence that President Barack Obama was born in the United States.

Clinton made the comments during a commencement address at Yale University on Sunday as part of a critique of American media consumption habits.

“The only place where we’re bigoted now is we only want to be around people who agree with us,” Clinton said. “In our media habits, we go to the television shows, we go to the radio talk shows we go to the blog sites that agree with us. And it can have very bizarre consequences.”

The former president pointed to the “birthers” an example of one of those “bizarre consequences.”

“Hawaii, the state where President Obama was born, has done everything they can to debunk this myth that he wasn’t born in America,” Clinton said. “They’ve done everything but blow up his birth certificate, put it in neon lights and hang it on the dome in the Capitol.”

“But 45 percent of registered Republicans still believe that he is serving unconstitutionally,” Clinton insisted, though he did not identify the poll.

“Why?” he asked. “Because they’ve been told that by the only place they go to get information.”

Responding to rumors during the presidential campaign about Obama’s place of birth, Hawaii state officials posted his birth certificate online.

  • Georgetown says:

    Hello, it is not the responsibility of the State of Hawaii to prove Bo’s place of birth. It is Bo
    s responsibility to Stand up and Tell the World, especially Kenya, that he was born in Hawaii.
    Prove it, by presenting theLong Form Certificate of Birth for the World to see. A Hawaiian
    Birth in the USA is something to be Proud of not ashamed and hidden. The protectionists and defenders do more harm than good in their defense. Lets hear Bo say ” I was born in Hawaii and Proud to be an American and for the Record I was not born in Kenya”

  • Unfortunately, we know that this idiot was born in the U.S.A.! Of course, he hasn’t any credibility, he’s a convicted perjurer, so why would I believe anything he has to say? He and: “Beer Keg Legs,” have so many skeletons in their closet, they should pipe down! If the American voters found out how much they had to cover up, they’d be run out of the country! He was a draft dodging, anti American, scumbag, who hid out in England and protested, while patriotic young men went to fight for America! Yea, I’m going to listen to this bubble nosed philanderer!
