The Birthers are Back: Join the Live Chat

The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a case about President Obama's citizenship, but a Texas lawmaker isn't listening. He has a new bill based on birther doubts about where Mr. Obama was born. How does he reconcile his birther beliefs against the facts? We're keeping him honest. Plus, tonight's other headlines.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

    People are entitled to their opinions, not their own facts.The birthers are spitting on the office of the President when they insist in spreading known falsehoods. The world leaders respect our POTUS, He was elected by the majority and all of us owe him the respect that the office of the 0resident is entitled to, to do otherwise is unpatriotic.

    Why is this guy getting so much air time when he does not/can not answer the questions put to him?

    WoW! Is this guy for real? There are even some who still think a man named Armstrong landed in Arizona~ Ignornance is not bliss

    @Kerry, "Why do you keep this very old topic going?Certainly there is something more current to talk about."

    I totally agree!

    What are you doing wasting your time with this guy you are interviewing? The WikiLeaks scandal seems important enough, no?

    @Amber-'President Obama has been in office for two years now, I don't understand why this is a sudden issue? Maybe I just haven't been paying attention.
    To me this feels like it might be a race issue?'

    I think it is and always has been

    This seems to be a few folks with loud megaphones and crazy antics to get attention. I think those who hold that position (POTUS not born in US) should have to prove their own point.

    This is old news. What about Korea? Wikileaks?

    This story is ridiculous. Why bother reporting it again?

    No...I'm pretty sure most people have moved on.

    "I've known everything about every president for the last 70-odd years, but I know nothing about President Obama..." Hyperbole anyone? Can nothing be said to convince this man he's wrong? He clearly has an agenda, only spews memes, and won't listen to reason or logic. Yet another fear-mongering kook whose credibility drops with every word he utters.

    Good evening, people. Who is the gentleman? I missed the first portion of the interview. He really has an ax to grind against Obama, it sounds.

    Hello, I just don't understand why it is so important that certain people know when the President and where the President was born.

    Well, unfortunately, with the Tea Party-ers entering the Congress, this is only going to gain more strength. Total waste of time.

    I have no idea why he wasn't born in Hawaii, or he was born in Kenya. Anderson is perfect correct this time, I agree....

    What a great segment. Anderson Cooper sure delivers topical, meaningful news.

    November 29, 2010 at 10:10 pm |
  27. Sue from Syracuse

    Glad to see Anderson refuting the 1981 travel by U.S. passport holders into Pakistant. That's good debate.

    Hey there, Anderson, you are an incredibly patient and persistent man but in the name of that is good in the world...stop the birther madness now....

    President Obama has been in office for two years now, I don't understand why this is a sudden issue? Maybe I just haven't been paying attention.
    To me this feels like it might be a race issue? But I could be wrong. Thank goodness for the AC360 team. Kudos to you all.

    Hello everyone. This Texan seems to be paranoid of Obama. For some reason he won't listen to reason. I think it's futile, Anderson.

    When the supreme court questions the citizenship of President Obama, they are saying that the FBI and OSI are inept! As an American Citizen, I find that very embarrassing.

  32. Sue R. Canton MI.

    Good grief! Not the birthers again. This seems like there may be some racist people involved with this group. Their entitled to have their doubts,,but they should have the facts by now to prove their point that President Obama was not born in America. Has this happened to other Presidents?

    November 29, 2010 at 10:09 pm |

    All Federal government employees MUST have a complete security background investigation according to their "clearance" by the FBI especially if they are in the position of "Commander and Chief".

  34. Chris, Cleveland OH

    Hi Anderson and all,

    I still can't believe this non-topic is getting play. If there are those who want to believe that POTUS is a non citizen, let them wallow in their own filth of ignorance.

  35. Heather - Spokane, WA

    Why can't some people just believe the truth when it is in front of them? or is it they just don't want to see the truth?

  36. Sue from Syracuse

    Is it true that Hawaii gives "Certificate of Live Birth" to anyone born anywhere if parent in the U.S. asks for it? I dont know. I have heard this and would like to know if it is true.

    I am sick to death of the debate about Obama's place of birth. Anderson is correct, the facts are there IF you look for them!

    Hi–It's great to see you back! I hope you enjoyed your vacation.
    I'm glad to hear the Supreme Court isn't wasting time with questions over Pres. Obama's citizenship.

    It's a shame that people like Leo Berman care more about Obama's birth certificate than they do about who was behind 9/11 or how the financial collapse happened.
