    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.



    Posts like these cheapen the real issues regarding racism in this country.

Trump trumped Obama and Axelrod, then to make sure they got the message, jabbed his fingers in Obama's eyes by taking credit and claiming it a proud moment.

    On the way he lofted some good shots at the press for failing to do their jobs. All the antagonists on the left have their long knives out... they better watch they don't go tripping down the stairs and impaling themselves like Sr. Lawrence Olivier in Marathon Man.

    IF you are saying what I think you are saying: Obama should have remained silent at this point, and making a statement now harms the presidency in that he is bowing to Trump or doing it in preparation of the election or seeking to distract from some other issue, or.......... AND that makes him appear weak.

    Is that what you said? Then I agree Maggie

    The only group of people who had the authority to question the President on this issue was the Congress of the United States. Obama should have never released that information -- unless he released it at the very beginning of the controversy...which is probably what he should have done. It was a bad decision to release it now. To say that those who think it was a bad decision have lost shreds of credibility and integrity is hyperbole to the max. (I love hyperbole, by the way.) The Office of the President of the United States is more important than the man. He blew it big time.

    I can no more disown [Rev. Dr. Wright] than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.
    The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person who, uh, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know there's a reaction that's been been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way and that's just the nature of race in our society. We have to break through it..." - Senator Barack Obama
    I think these are what Rev was thinking about.

    Releasing the long form puts that to rest.

    It's done. Get over it. He was born in Hawaii and he's not hiding anything. He played the birfers for the fools they are, kudos to him.
    Now lets see all his records after all he said he would be transparent yet all we have seen is secrecy

    No! Not the end of the issue. Obama needs to be charged with a big fat felony.

    I'm the lord Royal King of the "Jailers". Racists and kooks who think Obama needs to be seriously reprimanded.

    We are racially mixed in my family too... All races do it to each other, I agree. People see some "brown guys" park a car outside a gas station and they called the police. It turns out the car was broke down, and they weren't terrorists.
