    So, you are pissed off that Obama's campaign took foreign money, yes?

    You saying this situation wasn't caused by the Supreme Court? Y'all want the secrecy for some reason. If the reason is an innocent one, the accusation shouldn't be anything to be upset about. Rove's reaction demonstrates that Obama hit the target.

    The President provided a copy of his birth certificate AND the Republican Governor of Hawaii saw the original and attests to it. So proof was given of innocence - Obama is not foreign born.

    If the GOP is indeed innocent, it's easy enuff to prove, just as the President proved being born in Hawaii.

    Where's the crime? It's only the Feds. that can't sentence you without trial...where's the charges? Where's the need for habeas corpus ? Who are all y'all hiding?

    You all got so put out by Al Gore getting donations from Buddhist monks IN THE U.S., so how much worse is money from overseas corporations wanting to offshore American jobs by buying GOP influence than what Gore did? A whole lot worse. And you're oh so upset because you know it.

    Until shown otherwise, the GOP is beholden to foreign donors. Rove's outrage attests to THAT. Too bad, so sad for you. You also seem to have a serious problem with taking it like a man.

    I love how some of you liberals are now saying 'prove what we claim is wrong, or you're guilty'. It's ridiculous.

    BTW.. note the use of SOME in my statement, as opposed to 'ALL YOU' in yours. You're making generalizations, which again is a typical response from some liberals.

    Also, in case you simply had your liberal weenie glasses on too tight... I agreed with you on the birth certificate issue.

    One result of America's love of free speech is that we are willing to accommodate a high degree of slander and libel. Consequently, our laws have are pretty indulgent when it comes to enforcing honesty.

    I would say calling Obama a 'socialist' or 'fascist' constitutes slander or libel by the dictionary definition, but not so under the law.

    Re: Guilty until proven innocent... according to the White House

    Obama believes the Tea Party is a foreign entity? Good try trying to turn the discussion Obi.
    FAIL.
    You can't fool all the people all the time.

    McObi

    Hope and Change have died, have departed to the hereafter;
    Alinsky and Axelrod say there is a time for such words as...
    Hope, Hope, Hope and Change... yet
    Creeps Obi's petty presidency from day to day
    To the last syllable of recorded time,
    Illustrating he is a fool.
    Leading head first the way to political death. Out, out, dim lightbulb!
    His presidency is a slim shady, he a poor player
    That struts and teleprompts his hour upon the stage
    Only to be discovered for his true being: it is a tale
    Of a full idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing... but incompetence.

    Conservatives are taking this very seriously. That's what this thread is about.

    That's why they treated Gore like he was guilty in 2000, right?

    The hell they are HAHAHA.. they are benefiting hugely for defending the US Chamber of Commerce and its massive ad buying in favour of the right.

    And because the US Chamber of Commerce is quite secretive on where it gets its money from, then it is very easy to accuse it of getting funds from abroad, since it has quite a few non-US business as members. BP for example, has contributed to the US Chamber of Commerce... now did the US Chamber of Commerce use these funds to buy partisan ads for the Republican party and Tea Party? See... no one but the US Chamber of Commerce knows, and they of course are denying it... but should we trust them? Hell no.

    But as a non-American.. it is nice to know that we now can legally sneak massive funds into the US to fund the candidates of our choice Thanks Republican party!
