Maybe it's time for NBC Universal to either fully embrace birtherism or to just fire anyone within their organization who uses birtherism as a tool to smear the President of United States. Because at this point, it's starting to get old and annoying. First we had Trump, NBC did nothing to reprimand him, they even renewed his contract with another season of Celebrity Apprentice.

Now it's CNBC's Joe Kernen to flirt with birtherism as one of his daily attacks on President Barack Obama.

What is actually funny is that this 2012 Predictions Sheet by CNBC published on December 1st passed unnoticed until today when someone on Twitter tweeted this link. Apparently, CNBC asked  Maria Bartiromo, Jim Cramer, Larry Kudlow, Joe Kernen and Pete Najarian to make different prediction on the outcome of the 2012 presidential election. And the survey was done right after the debt ceiling debacle.

So at the question " Will the White House change hands?", each of them gave their answer. Simple question, right? But apparently not, cause Joe Kernen couldn't help himself and had to flirt with birtherism:

Kernen
Yes, and it will be occupied by someone born in the United States.

Stay classy. Either Joe Kernen doesn't know that Hawaii is part of the United States which will make anyone with a brain question CNBC's hiring requirement or he just thinks it's ok to use smears with racial undertone to attack the President of the United States.

Of course, the 4 idiots also bashed OWS in their prediction (if you scroll down in the link, you can read) and they are swooning over the prospect of Kim Kardashian getting married in 2012.

Question: Will Kim Kardashian marry again in the coming year?

    Bartiromo
I can say this with full certainty: absolutely not. That ‘blink and you’ve missed it’ wedding must have told her something. I think she’s single for a while.

    Cramer
I’m single right now, but you never know! Could be her lucky year.

    Kernen
Yes, she will marry Justin Bieber and give birth to quadruplets, creating the first “baby boy” band.

    Kudlow
Kim Kardashian is probably going to marry Eli Manning. Wait a minute. He already got married.

    Najarian
Only if I am single and can be available.

Talk about buffoons.

Rant over.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
