profile members of your april party, one of your party's rising stars said this over the weekend?
>> if standing for liberty and standing for the constitution makes you a wacko-bird then count me proud.
>> what would you do if one of your rising stars said that on tape this weekend, and on the very same day, another high-profile member of your party at the same event said this?
>> more background checks ? dandy idea, mr. president. should have started with yours.
>> what would you do if the most guaranteed to get headlines member of your party decided to stick with the birther thing and in the same 24-hour period the man in your party who has more name recognition than any other conceivable candidate for national office said this.
>> way too many people believe republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on.
>> if that from jeb bush and the background birther thing and the proud wacko bird thing, what would you do? what would you do almost before sunrise on the following monday morning to prevent those clips from getting any other air-time than they absolutely had to get? what would you do to step on that news? what happened early this morning to knock those clips right out of the headlines.
