Looks like the Hillary campaign got desperate.
From Politico:
Birtherism: Where it all began
If you haven’t been trolling the fever swamps of online conspiracy sites or opening those emails from Uncle Larry, you may well wonder: Where did this idea come from? Who started it? And is there a grain of truth there?
The answer lies in Democratic, not Republican politics, and in the bitter, exhausting spring of 2008. At the time, the Democratic presidential primary was slipping away from Hillary Clinton and some of her most passionate supporters grasped for something, anything that would deal a final reversal to Barack Obama.

Frederick J. Ryan Jr., former assistant to President Ronald Reagan, is president and chief executive officer of Politico. Try again. Provide proof that Hillary Clinton was a birther.

I know I gave you a quote from Politico that you blew off as well as others here have provided you links.
You are OCDing and it is getting creepy!
You have provided opinion pieces. No facts. I provided you with the wording of the memo that Republicans claim alludes to those in the Hillary camp saying that Obama wasn't born in Hawaii....not true. It doesn't say that. You people are great at making things up and spreading your lies as truth. Pathetic.

“Open borders attacks the root cause of Muslim extremism… it’s Muslim poverty that’s threatening our security, not our immigration system… Giving these men the chance to work here could diminish their poverty, their anger, and their misunderstanding of the U.S. before they are radicalized… Open borders will improve the world.”

Fat, rich, and ignorant...

and Liberal

“There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die…. There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American. There’s no question about that and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it.”

I never said Hillary Clinton was a 'birther.' I provided an article proving the birth certificate controversy had ties to her campaign.

As to your "try again"...

Former Yahoo! News Washington bureau chief David Chalian has been hired at Politico.

The former Yahoo! News Washington bureau chief who was fired after he was heard saying Republican National Convention attendees were “happy to have a party with black people drowning” has been hired at Politico.

Politico is NOT a friend of the conservative American citizen.

Why I am not a Liberal

'[I]llinois’ unpaid bills are slated to reach $9 billion during the Christmas season this year…By the end of the current fiscal year, lawmakers will have collected a total of $25.7 billion in new revenue from the 2011 tax hike. Despite this massive inflow of new cash, Illinois’ unpaid bills are higher today than they were when lawmakers passed the 2011 tax hike.'

Nope, never happened. Hawaiian officials have refused to say that Obama was born in Hawaii.
They have only said that he has a birth certificate which is in accordance with their policies and procedures. Their policies and procedures provide for the issuance of a birth certificate to babies born in other countries if a parent was a Hawaiian citizen.
Obama is not cooperating because he has something to hide.
Birther?

Remember Obamacare was to help the ailing Medicaid program but has compounded the problem

In California, just 47% of those who have signed up have received a private health plan. The rest were put on Medicaid.(And remember, these figures only include those who have signed up, but not necessarily paid their first premium).

The figures for the rest of the states aren’t any better. In Colorado, just 17% got private coverage, with the other 83% put on Medicaid. In Connecticut, 61% got private coverage, in Minnesota, 71%, Rhode Island 33%, and Washington State 11%.

The weighted average across all the states shows that only 36% of those who have signed up (but not necessarily paid for) Obamacare, were put on private plans.

The rest have been added to the rolls of Medicaid.

The birther issue wasn't something that really interested me all that much. But there are a few good reasons to question it besides the Hillary supporting attorney who took it to court..
Obama's own biography in a promotional booklet produced by the agency, Acton & Dystel, showcasing its roster of writers by the then Harvard law graduate in 1991 stated Obama was born in Kenya. It remained that way until April 2007 after Obama declared his campaign for the presidency. If it had been a fact finding error by his agent, why did it stay in print for so long incorrectly? And why would Obama not have had it corrected it himself as soon as the error was discovered? There are only two possible answers. He either didn't care that his bio was a lie or he didn't do anything about it because it wasn't.
And Michelle did quite clearly state that Kenya was Obama's homeland when it's widely understood one's homeland is one's place of birth. Why wouldn't she have known that?
It's hard to ignore these two striking and undeniable facts even if Realtime has no problem doing that for some reason.
LOL. Even Breitbart thought birthers were idiots.

That biographical sketch was put out by a literacy agency for disbursement to "business colleagues" in the publishing industry. There is nothing to indicate that Obama was even aware of its existence.

Breitbart.com , which was the first to publish a copy of the promotional booklet, added a disclaimer when they printed it which stated:

"Andrew Breitbart was never a "Birther," and Breitbart News is a site that has never advocated the narrative of "Birtherism." In fact, Andrew believed, as we do, that President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961.

...[W]e discovered, and now present, the booklet described below — one that includes a marketing pitch for a forthcoming book by a then-young, otherwise unknown former president of the Harvard Law Review.

It is evidence — not of the President's foreign origin, but that Barack Obama's public persona has perhaps been presented differently at different times."

You missed Joy Reid attacking Sarah Palin for having a Christmas tree. Reid used Jeremiah which was warning not make idols of trees. Apparently Ms Reid has NO concept of what a Christmas tree is or of Christian beliefs if she thinks anyone is worshipping the tree as a deity. The only one I know who worships trees are Green Peacers.

Yea, right.

Again....Frederick J. Ryan Jr., former assistant to President Ronald Reagan, is president and chief executive officer AND, in October 2012, Politico hired Washington bureau chief David Chalian, who was previously let go from Yahoo! News for saying GOP 'Happy to have a party with black people drowning' at the 2012 RNC convention in Tampa, Florida.
