    Is obama an illegitimate president?

    Obama ran for a second term largely on the story that Alquiada had been decimated on his watch. Then when terrorist linked to Alquiada attacked a US embassy and killed the Ambassador along with several other Americans Obama lied to the voters and said it was a spontaneous demonstration that got out of hand and was caused by a you tube video. Now that it has come out that he flat out lied and was told by the CIA it was indeed terrorism and now that it has come out that he told the CIA to delete all references to terrorism it seems he was elected for a second term largely based on a lie. It could be argued that if the voters knew from the beginning that terrorist did this it very well could have swung the election. Does this make him a president elected under false pretenses and therefor illegitimate? They took away Lance Armstrong's medals for breaking the rules and lying about it and erased all his records calling them illegitimate so what's the difference here?

    Okay, I laughed.

    Re: Is obama an illegitimate president?

    Where's the poll?

    I would say that when some places have 100% turn out for the firsttime in history and 99% of those votes all go to him would be far more of an indicator that he is "illegitimate" as a president since it clearly would lead one to the idea that there may have been a bit of voter fraud going on.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Obama might very well be a incompetent and duplicitous commander and chief, but I don't see any way you could claim that he was an "illegitimate" president. If the American people people were dumb enough to vote the man into office twice in spite of his administration's complete and total failure to produce any kind of positive economic, social, political, or military outcome on either a domestic or international basis, that is hardly his fault.

    As the old saying goes, "fool me once, shame on you." "Fool me twice..."

    There are rarely any "fair" presidential elections. The shark gets jumped nearly every time I can recall.

    There are about a dozen words starting with "i" that I could use to accurately describe Obama.

    Illegitimate is not one of them.
