Is the "Birther" argument posed by the Right the same (or similar) to the "Tax" argument posed by the Left?
I can’t help but cringe when I hear such radical arguments. I know back in 2008, it was “Obama isn’t a citizen of the US” which seemed silly, and it didn’t seem to matter what proof Obama would present, those who truly believed he was from Kenya continued to believe.
Now, we have the “Did Romney pay 0 taxes over 10 years”? I mean, to some on the Left, it may seem like a legit question. To a moderate, both questions could seem completely ridiculous. Both sides appear to believe the other side is being more obnoxious than the other.
Which question is more ridiculous? Is this what we should expect anymore out of the representatives we elect to represent us? Do they truly represent what MOST American’s want to ask of congress? Are they both simply red-herrings to the real matters at hand? Share your thoughts.
