Why the double standard?

You've been shown the birth certificate, now move on...

No one can be this dense, right?

I'm confused here... what if that was even true? What difference does it make? His mother is American, he was raised by her and her American parents. She was with Obama's father when he was a baby.. Geez.. my ex husband was born in Germany because his father was stationed there. Does that make him less American? Is he German because he was born in Germany?

My great grandparents came to American in the early 1900's. Does that make my grandparents non-American? Am I thus un-American too?

The fact is, Obama was born American and raised American. Even if he lived in another country for awhile with his Mother, it does not take away the fact that he is American. Are our military families un-American because they are based elsewhere in the world?? Do families that are stationed overseas because of their jobs or travel to experience different cultures become UnAmerican?

I am truly perplexed as to why you keep pushing this.

He's pushing this bogus issue because Obama wouldn't be able to run if he had been born on foreign soil, it's one of the few requirements.

Republicans are desperate, so they will cling on to anything right now...

Don't go changing the question because you realized you failed. You asked why no one has renounced Wright in here. Although almost everyone has, your memory is weak my friend.

Yet you posted another preacher with delight that he was attacking Obama. When are you going to renounce the video you posted?

And let's not forget that Obama has renounced Wright...

but let's forget about that and stick to the real important issues like crackpot theories on birth certificates...

So my ex-husband, because his father was stationed in the military, could not run for President because he was born in Germany? Or is the military base on foreign soil considered American soil?

A U.S. military base on foreign soil is considered American soil, so he's still safe

Oh, that's good to know. I didn't understand what the big deal was, but I guess I can kind of get it now.


PolitiFact | Obama's birth certificate: Final chapter

Quote:
And there’s the rub. It is possible that Obama conspired his way to the precipice of the world’s biggest job, involving a vast network of people and government agencies over decades of lies. Anything’s possible.

But step back and look at the overwhelming evidence to the contrary and your sense of what’s reasonable has to take over.

There is not one shred of evidence to disprove PolitiFact’s conclusion that the candidate’s name is Barack Hussein Obama, or to support allegations that the birth certificate he released isn’t authentic.

And that’s true no matter how many people cling to some hint of doubt and use the Internet to fuel their innate sense of distrust.

Do we agree that the candidates should be voted for on policy then?

Her silence on that topic is deafening.

Perhaps Obama's visit was not only to visit her but tie down a few loose ends-who knows.

How come Obama's maternal grandmother stated he was born in Kenya?

and yet, questions about Sarah's mysterious pregnancy is the province of far left looney tunes ... oh, the irony.

I know plenty of republicans who are not saying things like this.

Probably just to give you fodder so you could yammer on about idiotic stuff like this.

She must really dig you.
