    Thank you for scolding the media Obama. I know most of us are sick of the birther talk being the lead story everyday.

    This became a non-issue the minute Hillary Clinton dropped out of the race. If the Clinton smear machine couldn't produce proof that BHOII wasn't an American citizen, then BHOII is an American citizen. End of story.

    The sad thing is the birthers will move onto other questions about Obama now. Trump's latest effort? To prove Obama was a horrible student and there was a conspiracy to get him into the top schools in the country.

    His answer is to just tell the Saudis they have to lower prices. Yes, that will work.

    I hope the people that believe this stuff about Obama keep harping on it. It will make them look ludicrous and cast suspicion on everything else they believe in.

    They might accept it but just find something else (like his school records) to discredit him. It is easier than actually talking about the issues.

    I listened to Rush while on my lunch and his theory for why Obama did this is now is because he, a pop icon, was being called out by Trump who is a fellow pop icon.

    Take it for what it's worth.

    The main reason I even mention this is because when I first heard him say it, I thought "what is a 'Popeye con?'".

    Then after about 2 minutes I said "Shuddup Rush" and listened to music.

    I think up until Trump's presidential run (which really appears to be more and more real) the media was not obsessed with discussing it. While it was discussed on the fringes, the media did not lead every news hour with it. However, the last couple weeks have been absurd. CNN, Fox, MSNBC...they all talk about the birther issue before anything else. I think Obama had enough...especially when leading GOP candidates seem to be mentally insane.

    Hahahah....I coulda said the same thing....I also caught some of his show at lunch in my car.

    He also said that he thinks Obama decided to release the certificate because polling was now turning against him and the birther thing was gaining legs. Now Trump wants his college records....thinks he was a bad student despite the schools he got into. Trump also said that he thinks the press 'protects' Obama. He's not saying that he thinks the press is biased, is he? Crackpot!

    Trump now thinks the president cheated to get into Harvard Law School and Columbia and wants to see his records from school.

    Birther Orly Taitz now believes the document is real but thinks the President is using a false social security number.

    Obama is being racially profiled by these people as much as any person of color is who gets stopped by police while driving all the time. He has to prove things others do not because of his color.

    ......I am shocked, shocked this sort of thing goes on in politics. Why, it's almost like a president telling the world that a Latina family can be stopped on their way to an Arizona Brahms for ice cream and told to produce ID.

    Because I'm a geek I think about things like this: When a person becomes a serious candidate for President what paperwork does he/she have to fill out? I assume at some point they have to fill out the same forms that any other gov't employee fills out. An application? Is there an HR dept that contains a file for our President like any other employee? What exactly is the process for determining citizenship and DOB? Does the President fill out a direct deposit form? Who's signature is on the paystub? Does he have to wear or keep one of those magnetic barcoded ID badges to access doors?

    I also would like to ask our living Presidents when the last time they were alone in public?

    You mean like how Bush the Elder got Bush the Younger into Yale and Harvard Business even though he was unqualified, and he barely had a gpa higher than John Kerry.

    I find it hilarious that the Obama supporters find this more insidious than the usual politicking just because Obama's name ends in a vowel.

    Has it suddently lost its insidiousness to you now since Obama's name ends in a (D)?

    I don't know why everything has to be a Republican vs Democrat issue. I am neither, so I am all for criticizing Obama on legit things...not stupid stupid issues like him being born in Kenya or his grades.


    None of my critiques on Bush would have been about his grades. And I do not recall a leading Democratic presidential candidate talking about his grades in any way. Nor did the media obsess about his grades the way they have about Obama's birth certificate.

    I've said all along that while I believed Obama was a citizen, I thought it would be fascinating to see how our Constitutional government would respond to him being foreign-born. After all, not since Martin Van Buren has there been a viable question as to whether a sitting president was ineligible to serve due to his birthplace.

    That being said, I wonder why this document couldn't have been produced 2 years ago, and why there are recordings of Obama saying he wasn't born here, and Michelle saying Kenya was Barack's home country, circulating the internets, and I do speculate that the inconclusiveness was perpetuated by the Obama people for as long as possible as it made the birthers look crazy. And until someone like Trump -- someone not from the right wing fringe -- jumped on the birther bandwagon, Obama had no incentive to stop the madness.

    Actually, it was a left handed way of saying that Barack was a minority. I wouldn't have thought that would have been lost upon someone as astute as you.

    However, they did obsess upon the legitimacy of Bush's enlistment in the National Guard.

    So you still have your doubts?

    The recording of Obama saying he wasn't born here doesn't exist. All garbage. I don't know what sources you are using for this info, but really...it is all wrong.

    I don't either. Let me play the "what if" game with you. What if it turned out that the birthers were in fact correct and he was born in Kenya ... would it still be a stupid stupid issue, or would it then be a legit thing?
