    Re: White House releases Obama birth certificate

    What is happening here is that several posters who make up the right wing - perhaps even the radical right wing - are simply following the conservative marching orders to attempt to eliminate any discussion of race or racism in America. In doing this they charge the other side with the same sins theyare trying to pretend are not their own. They are taught that the best defense is a obnoxious offense.

    I have seen it so many times on this board from the usual predicatable suspects that i could write the darn posts for them.

    Some very wise poster hit it on the head: the right wing set this up so they could have it both ways and criticize Obama no matter what he did. For three years all we hear is the same tired old whine from the same tired old whiners ... "release the long form birth certificate". This despite a perfectly legal document which solves the matter. So now, because they have been such a major pain in the ass to the country, the White House does give them what they want.

    So now what it is the whine: "Obama is Turmp's bitch".

    I am tempted to say that anyone who follows that sort of hateful line has lost the last shred of their credibility and integrity. Sadly,in many cases, they had none to lose.

    Haha yeah. People of all races do that all the time - which is why I assume he said "our" instead of "their" prejudices. He was pointing out a reality. No big deal.

    You're cracking my son. Take a breath. It's only the interwebz. I'm genuinely worried about you. Since when are you a birfer?

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I don't know - 30 years from now, what will be the footnote of this period? Did America focus on the biggest budget deficit ever and the credit crunch or did it spend 4 years asking about its President's birth certificate?

    I think this will continue or some other avenue will keep the focus off the real issues of the time.

    No matter how you try to spin it, Trump put the birfer thing out there front and center -- and he just got smacked down.
    Whether or not this will help or hurt him if he decides to run for the presidency remains to be seen. To say that he was defeated here is myopic. Trump won. The birthers won. Obama really blew it.

    Not wasting time. sorry.
    You said Obama called you a racist, then you said Obama accused all white people of sharing his grandmother's racism. But in none of his quotes did he accuse his grandmother, you or white people of racism. FAIL. You played the racism card and it got you nowhere. Too bad, so sad.

    Except for the twice now that he has now, you're right, he has never shown proof of his eligibility.

    Obama made a racist statement, and almost 4 years ago I made comments on it. now you want to hurl personal attacks at me. Sorry I insulted your president.
    I don't think we are attacking you... Talking about race is an sensitive topic, and you're blasting him because you think he looks racist. When people usually talk about race, it isn't uncommon to misunderstand what each other, or think something is racist and that's not the other person's intentions.

    Other times people say racist stuff, and they don't understand it's racist.

    I really don't think the president is racist... Do you honestly think he is racist? He was raised by his white mother, and he talks about her with love and respect. I think he honors her memory, and he hasn't created any racist policies.

    Re: Obama to speak on birth certificate

    HAHAHA. I'm more then amused that it took the Donald to force him to produce this. FINALLY. Damn now that's settled. End of issue. (Obama could have saved us all years of annoyance by doing this earlier).
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
