    I'll save him the trouble. The correct answer is the first birther claims came from anonymous emails from "supposidely" Hillary supporters. Anonymous emails can't be tied to any specific politician, so there is no way for him to prove his claim. He can speculate, but not prove.

    look, that train left the station ... the guy is president ... if I were you, I'd start worrying about Cruz being a Manchurian Candidate ... the guy was born in Canada and his father fought with Castro ... he pretends to be an ultra conservative nut to get the GOP nod and if he becomes president he reveals that he is a communist like his dad and we're screwed ... it'll be too late then ...

    What actually lost it was a number of reasons. One of the bigger is racism. People will not vote for someone if they are black and they will vote for him because they are black. Example Samuel L Jackson said that's how he voted. And Romney couldn't excite the base. So people would rather be called out of work than racist.

    Thanks for the correction.

    John Kennedy did win and Robert was on his way.

    Sorry, but that is a poor excuse. The voting is anonymous and if people were "afraid" of being called racist they could have just voted for Romney and said they voted for Obama. Blaming racism on Romney losing is pathetic IMO.

    Romney lost because of his comments and the belief that he would take away social programs that people want. Racism may have played a small part, but not as significant as you are claiming it to be.

    If I bothered to use the forum's search feature, I could easily find rightwingers who espoused such idiocy.

    It plays a bigger role than people want to admit. No other president had the same approval rating with the same economic conditions and got reelected. 1st Bush had an average approval rating around 60 and didn't get reelected. Obama has hovered around 50. But like a said it was a number of factors including Romney didn't excite the base so they stayed home. And I believe his comment about terrorist and Benghazi during the debate was a bigger hit to his campaign.

    No other candidate insulted 47% of the population either like Romney did. Racism was not the reason Romney lost the election. Did it play a part? yes, a small one. Was Romney's comments what hurt him the most? Yes.

    And you miss my point entirely. It isn't whether the guy meets the citizenship requirement, he clearly does. For me it is about how he handled the controversy, and every controversy that followed it.
