    A definitive answer like that indicates you believe this to be fact, otherwise you would have simply said "I'm not sure" or "I'm uncertain," something other than "yes." I'm not trying to bust balls here or be nasty, I just think you should choose your words a bit more carefully. Lightning rod statement will attract lightning strikes you know?

    Sorry, but no. Taking one word out of a sentence is the epitome of taking out of context.

    Besides, I was the only person who bothered to answer the person's question. Anyone who doesn't like my answer should go ahead and answer the person's question another way.

    Nobody took anything out of context. You answered a simple question with a definitive affirmation. You said "yes." You didn't say "he might be" or "I'm not sure." You said "yes." Saying you think you read it somewhere doesn't indicate any wavering in your answer. All it does is tell us you aren't sure where you heard it, but you heard it somewhere. And it doesn't change your answer from "yes."

    Irrelevant.

    Irrelevant.

    I answered in a complete sentence, all of which is relevant. And, I am the only one in this thread who bothered to answer the person at all.

    Enough of this nonsense.

    Dunno, I quit paying attention to the whole birth certificate issue after it became obvious that no further official inquiry would be forthcoming.

    At this point, I'd like to see the government establish more definatively what being a native born citizen who is eligible for the Presidency means, and a mechanism for investigating this BEFORE a person becomes a viable candidate for same, in order to avoid such disputes in the future.

    The Tax Day Tea Parties spoke to the reality of a government that's gotten too big for its collective britches, whereas the die-hard birthers ignore the reality that Obama's citizenship status, and thus his eligibility to sit in the Oval Office, has been fully satisfied.

    Quite possibly from limbaugh's own site:

    What's the Difference Between God and Obama?

    RUSH: What do Obama and God have in common? Neither has a birth certificate. How do they differ? God does not think he's Obama. And there's another difference between God and Obama, and that is that liberals love Obama.
    Even if he's trying to tell a joke obviously there's some indication of how he believes.

    Then there's this radio show:

    Re: To Obama Birthers Look Unreasonable/Unhinged?

    Some people think the matter is still open to question, as it hasn't been proven beyond any doubt where Obama was born or whether he possesses (or is eligibile to possess) dual citizenship somewhere. There's also some grey areas surrounding what constitutes a "natural born citizen".

    Some people raising these issues have honest concerns. Others are nutjobs who jump on every conspiracy-theory bandwagon that comes along. Others are making political hay where they can.

    Every side has it's own loony fringe. It is just funny how both sides try to say the other is more loony based on the crazes.

    When someone is as powerful and deceptive as Obama, wild conspiracy theories follow them.
