Dems Suddenly Interested in Obama Birth Certificate?

Ok...I love this idea, and I think the Dems are on the right track in identifying which Republicans are hiding the fact that they are part of the more conservative "Tea Party" movement.  Ever since the Tea Party began its grassroots campaign, it is suspected that many Republicans either in office or pursuing office secretly agree with the party's platform.

Once again, Wingnut Daily has offered this information in an attempt to demonize the Dems, but it's given me something to write about instead.  Since some Republicans agree with the Tea Party (described as extremists by the Democratic leadership), I think it's important to make them go on the record with their beliefs.  To that end, Democrats have produced a checklist of questions to ask their opponents...

  • Do you believe that Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen?

  • Do you think the 10th Amendment bars Congress from issuing regulations like minimum health care coverage standards?

  • Do you think programs like Social Security and Medicare represent socialism and should never have been created in the first place?

  • Do you think President Obama is a socialist?

  • Do you think America should return to a gold standard?
The memo instructs that if a GOP candidate says no, make his or her "primary opponent or conservative activists know it."

The Terminator's take...this is ingenious!!  The strategy is fabulous because the Republican giving the answers will face pressure from both sides regardless of their response.  If the timing is right, it could be very effective!
