honestly how much does the public, media (aka MSM) really know about anyone who is a politician let alone a president. It's not any different with Obama then it is with anyone else. Diamond ur just grasping at nothing again. keep it up cuz it's fun to watch...

that's why it's a game changer. that's why the election of Obama changes the world. it shifts a centuries old racially based power structure.

he could turn out to be a crap president. absolutely. but, given history, the fact that he was elected at all is a stunning reminder that we are in the future, and that progress has been made.
He is evidence of the incremental progress that has been made over many decades, America today isn't very different than America a month ago, it isn't a changed country.

He didn't have to.

It could have been a journalistic CYA just in case something such as this comes to light later.

Time will tell.

Why are you so desperate?

Why won't you acknowledge that if this had half an ounce truth that the Republican party would have looked into it?

Take off the tin foil hat and go breathe some fresh air.

No you don't realize that, because it was kept out of the MSM.

Still going on about that?

you know what's funny, pathetic and sad all at the same time ? Is that polygon gets ihis misnformation and his cutesy quotes and parables from "the inside" and "his people" right about the same time my batshit crazy and just-as-bigoted-as-polygon in-laws do !

It's like they can't comprehend where people stand on an issue and discuss them on their own merits without oversimplifying it (i.e, dumbing it down) for their readers to the level of "olivia offers ice-cream".

Maybe it's just their way of weeding out the "elitists"

Same goes with the whole birth-certificate conspiracy crap and almost anything else you'll see from polygon from "his people".

These are the same people who boast of emails from Nigerian Princes....

Because ignorance is one thing, but the comments you made that day told me something about your character that I frankly didn't care for. There's a dose of honesty for you.

I'm watching Obama's first news conference and I love how he discusses foreign policy with Iran and what dog his children are getting in pretty much the same tone. Good stuff...

Can we all agree that when Diamond posts things like "Obama's getting a pass because the media didn't investigate his birth certificate," we should just collectively ignore him?
