    Yeah that is what I said

    Wow. You figure that's happened before, that someone who grew up hating the US became President, or did Obama break new ground?

    Nah, I don't care where he was born. He's not fit to lead anything other than a small town post office.

    Conservatives are just race baiting. Take it for what it is.

    I don't even think the "OBAMA HATES AMURRICA DURR DURR" line is race-baiting, it's simply buying into a load of horse**** that makes them feel better.

    Barack Obama's father, who Pres. Obama barely knew, was somehow such a huge influence on young Obama's life that he adopted his same "anti-colonial Kenyan" ideals and somehow "hates America" because no legitimate reason whatsoever that's ever been presented.

    There has been a concerted effort since Obama came into prominence among the right to paint him as an "other." HE'S NOT LIKE YOU. It's not race-baiting, it's xenophobia.

    It's hackish behavior, to claim that because Obama doesn't share their ideals he "hates America," and there are legit criticisms of the guy the right would be better served spending their time on. But instead, it's ideological masturbation. And in a few years when they don't have Obama to kick around anymore, these guys are going to be lost.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    The pattern is obvious. Harvard Law School, president of the Harvard Law Review, professor of Constitutional Law, ran for the House, ran for the Senate, ran for President, this guy is a radical anti-American. Not only not born in America, but his real parents were Fidel Castro and Angela Davis.
