    Seriously. Those who kept it up after the release of the initial birth certificate just looked like crap because this had never been done to a POTUS candidate to anywhere near this extent, ever. If this was a "usual" ploy, it wouldn't have looked so bad. Since it was the first black serious POTUS contender, frankly I cannot blame anyone who thinks racism.

    Of course, people like you probably think that about many things.

    You know, I did not even bat an eyelash until after Obama presented the birth certificate the first time. It was authenticated and I thought that was that. It wasn't until the cries for long form birth certificates along side the delving into his Indonesian schooling and all the Muslim stuff that it really stunk like a issue in bigotry. If that is "quickly" to you - that is your perception, not reality.

    Yeah why should there be any suspicion of a guy that spends quite a bit of money concealing his past before actually revealing it. That is how people come to trust one another.

    Sure you did, the fact that his father was foreigner had nothing to do with what they looked at, it was purely his skin color. I've noticed progressives seem obsessed with race.
