It wouldn't have mattered one bit when he released it. You guys would have found something else to bitch about. I'd rather you guys just admit you're either racist, bigots or extremely partisan. You'd atleast get my respect for being true to who you are rather than continuing to hide behind BS excuses.
Just admit you don't like the man either because of his political ideology or the color of his skin and be done with it. But let's STOP masking the real reason(s) why you hate him and tell the truth. Fact is no document he shows to validate the origins of his birth will ever be good enough for some of you. Fess up...you'll never, ever be satisfied until he's no longer in the White House.
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody 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.

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.
