If there wasn't an issue, then ask yourself why the President of the United States is responding to gossip. Will he come out next to assure us he's not racist? (Judging by this thread, that just might be his next move. )

    Trump wasn't playing to birthers. He raised a legitimate question. "Why won't he release his long form birth certificate?" And way too many people were suddenly sayin', "Yeah!! Why not??"
    Good point. When the world's economy is going into the tank, the Middle East is about to implode and forces are at work to take working class money and lay it at the feet of the rich, and some people STILL regard stupid crap like this, gay marriage, and a plethora of other sideshow carnival barking distractions as actual "issues." I think it is merely a ploy to distract the rest of the populous from their own dismal political failures. Of course, you would be hard pressed convincing those sort of people. They seem to have their own perceptions of reality. I suppose I should count myself blessed that I am not one of the 24% who allow people to piss in their hair and make them believe it is raining. LOL!

    What I am surprised about is how many retards there actually are. I figured 11-12%. You know, the Becksters, Limbaughnauts, Palinites. I was surprised to learn that there are a lot more stupid walking around out there than we realized.
    And they all seem to make it onto this forum.

    Re: Obama to speak on birth certificate

    I am disappointed in Obama for caving to the demands of these moronic conspiracy theorists. By doing so, he has only made them feel validated. Even though it seems like this issue is put to rest, there will inevitably be a faction of Birthers who will continue to claim that the certificate is somehow invalid or whatever. In an effort to shut it down, he has only re-ignited the issue and given the Birthers validation that all they have to do is whine loud enough and they will get results.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Obama to speak on birth certificatedontworrybehappy is now banned from this thread.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    And this fringe element will be enough for the fringe on the left to use it to attack the entire opposition to thier views.... round and round we go.

    Is ALL Obama's fault for a lot of people being birthers, and I bet that his wife gave him the idea to FINALLYshow his real birth certificate. The man doesn't have the brains to think for himself.
    Sore loser perhaps? LOL!

    Maybe those folks took their cue from union supporters?

    Re: Obama to speak on birth certificate

    To all the people who are saying "I am disappointed in Obama" or "Obama shouldn't have caved in" or "Obama showed his BC! haha we win you lose!"

    Ya'll need to get a life. Personally, this whole BC issue is so ****ing trivial compared to everything else. I think our country kinda has bigger things to worry about.
    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.
