T-Paw wants Trump to get a grip on reality.
Tim Pawlenty has shown over and over that he's willing to go the extra mile to win over the Republican Party base. But he draws the line with birthers -- including Donald Trump.

Funny guy, The Donald, and he's rich, too, Pawlenty told Sean Hannity on Fox News last night. But Trump should stick to telling flustered wannabes on "The Apprentice" they're fired, instead of wasting everyone's time and attention on debunked conspiracies about the president's birth certificate. President Barack Obama is an American. Get over it and move on.

Here's "the stupid thing."
HANNITY: Let me ask you about this little battle with Trump. Donald Trump has said, Where is the birth certificate? You said it is not an issue for you. You have no doubt whatsoever. My question to you is, -- because I never really followed the issue. I've gotten more interested only lately. Why don't they just produce the stupid thing and move on?

PAWLENTY: First of all, as to Donald Trump, the Donald, I think he's successful, entertaining, interesting and funny. I think he brings a lot to the debate so, you know, good for him. But on the other hand for me, the news reports from CNN and others have said they've seen the birth certificate.

The scanned version of Barack Obama's birth certificate.
Hannity dished some snark about never trusting CNN -- on the same day news broke that the Fox News D.C. managing editor knowingly spread "far fetched" nonsense about Obama being a socialist, even though he knew he was deceiving his audience. Fair and balanced as always.

PAWLENTY: I just don't believe, with the [newspaper] advertisement, with the hospital announcement, with the certificate of live birth, that somebody that long ago, you know, fabricated and created a fraudulent situation [so] that Barack Obama could be where he is today. I just don't believe that.

Hannity, conveniently ignoring reality, kept on badgering him: "Can you find it?"

PAWLENTY: No, but it has been reported. You know, CNN, I watched it myself. CNN reported they saw the birth certificate. You got to either believe that they didn't and they're lying or there is something else going on.

Something else? Like a cynical smear campaign to try and win a little free publicity, maybe? That would never happen in American politics.

Here's The Donald on "The View."

Montana:"The United States, favors creativity wherever it can be found. We're apostles of prosperity and defenders of the free exchange of ideas and when more people in more countries are free to rise, to invent, to communicate, to dissent, it's not the doom of United States leadership, its the triumph of the American way."

Couldn't agree more with this. I'm not even american but the same principles apply to every democratic nation.

The only party that is desperate are the Republicans, but its to “kill the middle class”, they will lose!

Let me just say that Trump may just be “rattling the Birthers cages”, he can run or he may have grown accustomed to media attention this non-issue would create.

The current Republicans only know how to a) Start Wars not Win them (talk about no exit strategy), b) Fire more middle class worker, c) Deny middle class worker healthcare, d) Break unions. e) Take chice away from women, f) Act like they are not responsible for the financial collapse and the deficit, yup thats about it.

Our current President travelled under a USA passport long before he was elected President, but I guess the quacky BIRTHERS, must believe that the USCIS – United States Passport was in on the lie, please, grow up, you are wrong!

The Birthers just HATE and can’t debate!Have any of the quacky BIRTHERS presented any credible proof that will standup in court? Answer: NoHave any of the quacky BIRTHERS won any Court Cases? Answer: NoThey are just mainly backward, uneducated, white people who HATE our half black President.

The majority of the voting public ask “where the proof”, show some proof BIRTHERS or the voting majority will continue to see you as dumb, stupid or racist, maybe all three. Can you blame them?

Still, I really hope one of these retreads and blowhards runs for president, not because they have a chance of winning but because I like to see the train wreck that they will cause.
