  •  and what percentage of americans (5+ / 0-)

    support attacking iran or islam in general? less than 1/3 does not strike me as broad support. more than half of republican primary voters said they thought obama wasn't born in the usa.

      I think the fact that about 1/4 of our country (half of Republicans) thinks Obama wasn't born here means about 1/4 of our country is arguably nuts. What say you? What percentages would you be looking for?

        they're nuts. and they're a small minority. and the number whp turn violent, like the number of religious fanatics who turn violent, is relatively tiny.

        having one-fourth of your country be nuts is not good. I call that "broad support" for the crazy theory that Obama is not an American. You may have a different cut-off, in which case we shouldn't use the term "broad support" because I'm not using it to mean "majority" but simply "widespread enough to be a significant and worrisome phenomenon, not just a few bad apples."
