Conservatives seem deliriously drunk with their cartoon picture of Obama, to whom is glibly attributed every pathology in the book. Yes, there were ambiguities about Obama's birth certificate that have never been satisfactorily resolved. And the embargo on Obama's educational records remains troubling. But I am still waiting for hard evidence about the host of other charges that are continually being hammered against him -- from his alleged fidelity to the crypto-tactics of Chicago leftist Saul Alinsky to the questions raised by right-wingers about the production of Obama's two memoirs. Out of respect for the presidency, conservatives need to put up or shut up about these issues.
Oh, that we could put up or shut up...that assumes that the answers would be there to do so...as the questions obviously linger not only for conservatives, but also for Ms. Paglia. The burden of proof continues to lie at Pres. Obama's feet.
She can't skate free from this little piece, as she herself uses the following phrases - "never been satisfactorily resolved", "remains troubling" and "still waiting for hard evidence". I too feel the same way Ms. Paglia! And it is out of respect for the presidency that conservatives will work to find and present the truth...for the truth will set you AND us free!
