Layers upon layers of fact checkers

Cheeyeah, right. And they're SOOO much smarter than us, too:

On Wednesday's CBS Evening News, outgoing anchor Katie Couric began the broadcast by declaring: "It was an extraordinary moment, President Obama went on national television today and did what no other president has ever even been asked to do, prove he's a natural born U.S. citizen." On Thursday's Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, host Andrea Mitchell similarly proclaimed: "I mean, people who want to raise these conspiracy theorists theories and there is no other explanation other than, you know, sort of pure racism, because it's never been raised about a white president." (Link.)

Except that, it has. Chester A. Arthur faced similar questions about his birthplace during the 1880 presidential campaign. Democrats even hired a lawyer to discredit Arthur, claiming that the Republican was actually born in Quebec, Canada.

But hey -- after all, we're talking about the modern MSM and a Democrat in the White House. Oh, and that Democrat happens to be black. This means THE NARRATIVETM is in 100% effect, and the actual facts be damned!!

Hube you forget that liberals don't remember anything before 1968.
