What a year! As I write this President Obama is only minutes away from taking the official oath of office and beginning his second term as President of the United States of America. The ceremonial public oath and address will occur tomorrow.
It is interesting to reflect back on 2012 and how it unfolded for the Birthers. One year ago today Orly and the Birthers were in a frenzy over the possibility of actually presenting evidence that Barack Obama was not a natural born citizen or was some kind of imposter. A hearing before ALJ Malihi was only six short days away and Malihi had already decided to let a subpoena for Obama’s “papers” Orly had filed stand. The level of excitement in Birthistan was unprecedented. Well, we all know how that worked out and the crushing Birther defeat in Georgia was to be followed by many others. Orly was to spend most of the year in the courts and she picked up a new sanction along the way when she tried the subpoena trick again against Occidental College.
The year culminated with a smashing victory for President Obama on November 6th and a last minute agreement on the Fiscal Cliff that most consider to be a big win for the President. Now let’s all enjoy Democracy at work. We have two days to celebrate the victory of reason over greed and stupidity. I plan to enjoy this. The inmates do not run the asylum. The Birthers are losers and always will be.
Today they are relegated to the corner of history with the other irrelevant conspiracy nuts.
Updated: I had to add this of course.
