Are not the "birthers" missing a fundamental truth that what defines Americans is not what some believe is "real" American (whatever that means) but our diversity, rallied around freedom?

He simply answered "yes" and slid the mic away to laughs from the crowd, before continuing with: "If we do our job from a grassroots standpoint, we won't have to worry about it. We will send him back home to Kenya or wherever it is."
Rep. Mike Coffman's "apology" for saying President Obama isn't an American "in his heart" has turned into a multi-part series, with dark overtones, disappearances, repeat episodes, and passion.
