Remember all that Bush-era haranguing from the reichwing about Democrats, MoveOn and progressive bloggers undermining the President in a time of war? Now that the Presidency is in Democratic hands, Senator Richard Shelby (D-now-R-Alabama) has decided it’s fine to question the legitimacy of our President to serve —  during wartime!

Senator Shelby, you give America’s enemies comfort with statements like this:

“Well his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven’t seen any birth certificate,” Shelby said. “You have to be born in America to be president.”

This issue was put to rest (for everyone but Alan Keyes) last August when FactCheck.org examined the certificate of true birth and provided additional documentation. Senator Richard Shelby needs to stop giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies, especially while our President leads warfighters on two battlefronts left to him by his predecessor. It’s one thing to disagree publicly about policy, and the Senator knows that. It’s quite another thing to publicly question whether our President meets the Constitutional qualifications to hold the office he was resoundingly elected to in November.

It needs to stop. Tell Richard Shelby not to undermine our Commander-in-Chief in wartime. Talk like his is what America’s enemies want to hear. If he is an American patriot, he will stop this senseless questioning. It’s bad for our troops and it’s bad for America.
