actually dobbs holds strong for the "president" to present his COLB to a third party other than anneburg foundation for whom he used to work.    looks like congress is moving to have all future presidents present a long form birth certificate with doctor and nurse signatures since the possibility of a constitutional crisis still haunts the presidency.   the obama faithful are engrossed in a hysterical reaction to suppress free speech.

Lou Dobbs
After being attacked by groups ranging from the Southern Poverty Law Center to Media Matters for relentlessly calling on Barack Obama to prove his eligibility for the office of the presidency, CNN's Lou Dobbs wasn't backing off on either his syndicated radio or his television program today.

Once again, he renewed his calls for Obama to produce his long-form birth certificate that would settle doubts about where he was born and offered that the president's actions could actually be "illegal."Dobbs took on the special-interest groups demanding that CNN shut him up.

"The left is trying to silence their opponents and their competitors in the public marketplace of ideas," he said on his radio show. "One issue in which the ethnocentric issue groups have been trying to silence me is on the issue of illegal immigration. Many of those, if you will, have migrated to me here recently because I, even though I said I believe the president is a citizen of the United States, I don't understand why he shouldn't produce a birth certificate. My God, you're talking about the third rail of American journalism, baby! That's it. I'm not going to back off."Join in WND's Fedex campaign and tell Obama you don't buy his state-run media coverup!As WND is reporting, Dobbs has come under fire for having the audacity to question on air why Obama hasn't released his long-form birth certificate.
Now members of the Daily Kos website, which bills itself as "the largest progressive community blog in the United States," have turned up the heat even more by listing CNN executives' email addresses in a campaign to get Dobbs fired from the network."Lou Dobbs is an idiot and he should be booted off CNN for his obsession with President Obama's birth certificate," writes Daily Kos diarist kerouacforobama. "We need to get these far-right haters off the air."

I have been trying to stay out of this...but the person who replaced Lou "hates immigrants" Dobbs last week spent thirty minutes de-bunking the Obama birth certificate issue before Dobbs came back and ignored it.

despite the freakout over his skepticism about obama's birth certificate, lou dobbs will remain @ CNN.  i agree with what lou is saying on TV --- obama is an illegal and therefore not qualified to be president according to the constitution.   thank god soldiers are contesting the "commander-in-chief's" orders to go to afghanistan.   BORN IN KENYA!!!

Reporting from New York -- CNN/U.S. President Jon Klein told staffers of "Lou Dobbs Tonight" on Thursday that the controversy regarding the legitimacy of President Obama's birth certificate -- a topic Dobbs has avidly pursued on the air -- is a "dead" story.

But in an interview, the cable news chief left open the possibility that Dobbs may continue to raise questions about why the president has not produced a long-form birth certificate. The absence of such a record has spawned rumors that Obama was not born in the United States, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary.

"He's got more than 30 years as a television journalist, and I trust him, as I trust all our reporters and anchors, to exercise their judgment as various stories evolve," Klein said of Dobbs, whose daily CNN program is a mix of news and opinion.

Lou Dobbs and the canard over President Obama's birth

"Certainly if there are future news pegs, then we have to take that story as it comes," he added. 

That appeared to be a step back from the stance Klein took in his e-mail Thursday, in which he wrote that CNN researchers had determined that Hawaiian officials discarded paper documents in 2001. Because of that, Obama's long-form birth certificate no longer exists and a shorter certificate of live birth that has been made public is the official record, they reported.

"It seems to definitively answer the question," Klein wrote in the e-mail, first reported by the website TVNewser. "Since the show's mission is for Lou to be the explainer and enlightener, he should be sure to cite this during your segment tonite. And then it seems this story is dead -- because anyone who still is not convinced doesn't really have a legitimate beef."

On Friday, Klein said he was not ordering the staff to drop the story.
