      I understand that people put him down. I find it hard to stomach the issues these fools continually bring up...

      Birth certificate (bogus)
      SSN (double bogus)
      School Records (WTF for?)
      Rev. Wright (If he doesn't hold a cabinet post - who CARES what he said 20 years ago?)
      Ditto Bill Ayers
      These morons complained when Obama put mustard on a burger.
      Now they don't like a comment about walks on the beach.

      And the Obama-bashing kooks don't like that they aren't respected.

        It's why I don't spend too much time in this forum. I think whiners are pathetic. Obama this, Obama that, it's like little kids. For God's sake, go help out at the nursing home, volunteer at a school, do some yardwork.. take a walk in the park.

          That is the point my husband was making today.  Why do they distract people with trivial nonsense instead of tackling the serious issues that need resolutions?  At least when we attacked Bush we were getting deeper and deeper into debt (from a huge surplus), got into 2 wars and most the world hated us.  These were actual issues.  We didn't even give a damn where he was born or what he did in his spare time. We were too busy being afraid.

            It's a good thing we didn't care about what W did in his spare time. He sure did have a lot of it! W took more vacation days in office than another other recent president.

            On the other hand, we should have cared MORE about what his Veep did in his spare time. Hunting with Cheney -- now THAT'S scary!!!

            AMEN Moonchild! I get annoyed when conservatives try and equate questioning the birth certificate, or him being a secret Muslim, with Bush spying on citizens without warrant, and lying us into a war that cost American lives and quite a chunk of change.
            it isn't the same. Our arguments are nothing alike actually. One is mature and the other is childish. Period.
            On another note - tell your husband he is awesome, because I looked at your picture for several minutes. There is not a chance in the world that you are 50. Incredibly beautiful. Good for you!

        Mr hughes,
        REALLY the bashing never stops did you have the same distain for the relentless attacks on GW? I doubt it-Poor Barry Soetaro,he isnt anonymous - well next time dont run for office-be transparent like you said you were going to be "the most transparent administration". That lasted what three days-maybe. congress on C-SPAN - what do you expect from a guy who wont disclose anything else...

      Ann- This is a joke. Do you actually do any work to learn absolutely anything you believe?

      1) Original, long-form 1961 Hawaiian birth certificate.
           - Seen by the director of Hawaii's Department of Health, Chiyome Fukino, confirmed by the court, and every single judicial forum, and was confirmed by the Supreme Court. BTW- He hasn't spent a penny on litigation regarding this.
           - His birth announcement that had been published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Sunday, Aug. 13, 1961
           
      2) Marriage license between Obama’s father (Barak Sr.) and mother (Stanley Ann Dunham) — not found, not released
            - Who cares? I thought about researching this, but then realized...who cares? What does that prove if they weren't married? That means nothing about nothing.

      3) Obama’s baptism records — sealed
           - Although many questions have been raised about Obama's Muslim heritage there have been no demands for proof of a record of baptism.
          - Baptism records? Who do you think you are? What do you think that means anyway? Try to get my baptism records. What makes you think you have the right to see someone's baptism records anyway?
      4) Obama’s adoption records — sealed
           - In nearly all States, adoption records are sealed and withheld from public inspection after an adoption is finalized. http://www.childwelfare.gov/systemwide/ … cessap.cfm
          -  Just because Joe Blow wants to see it, doesn't mean they have the right to.
      5) Records of Obama’s and his mother’s reptriation as US citizens on return from Indonesia — not found, not released
          - She didn't renounce citizenship! Did you look ANY of this up, or just post drivel? It is called Right of Return. In the United States, you can go live anywhere you want in the world, for as long as you want, and ALWAYS come back as a citizen...unless you directly renounce your citizenship, which Ann Dunham never did.

      6) Name change (Barry Sotero to Barack Hussein Obama) records — not found, not released
          - His name was never Barry Soetoro. He WENT BY that name when he was at Occidental College, but was registered under the name Barrack Hussein Obama. You can look at that 1979-1980 "Lookbook" and see his picture and NAME : BARRACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.

      You know what Ann...this isn't worth it. Each one of these can easily be dismantled if you would just put in the slightest effort, just stop eating the Cheetos on the couch and actually try to learn something for once, rather than spouting slanderous drivel. It is pathetic.

      That fact of the matter is you are a bigot. There is no other reason you refuse to even put effort in to learn if you are right or wrong. You don't care if you are wrong. You will flat out lie about the man because you personally hate his skin, his name, his father's religion. You bring shame to my country.

      7) Noelani Elementary School (Hawaii) — not released

      8) Punahou School financial aid or school records — not released

      9) Occidental College financial aid records — not released. (These records were, however, subpoenaed but Obama lawyers succeeded in quashing the subpoena in court. No other Occi records have been released.)

        this is a blatant LIE!! the courts never dismissed any case on evidence! only legality. You need to do your looking up! please show court papers that the judge dismissed on evidence! and I guess attorneys are free? not one cent! please. very sad for you! spreading lies like this. prove the supreme court dismissed the birth certificate issue on EVIDENCE!!! it was legality!

          HOW ABOUT THAT? YOU, however, won't look them up, because you could care less about what is true.
          Admit it to the world and stop hiding behind your lying...you are a basic racist who will lie to get your point across. Come on...refute it. BTW- the cases don't go against him personally, so he doesn't spend a dollar personally. They try to prove he isn't eligible which puts the defense on public attorneys, making YOU pay for it. SO, you have paid to prove he is eligible, which has been proven time and time again - so good job.
          How about you try to learn something for once?

              Hmmm courts are supposed to adhere to legality. If you want to indulge yourself in a fishing expedition, rent a boat.

              It is not and never will be the function of the courts to participate in a mugging.

    Well of course he's only human.   Despite all the pre-election hype to the contrary.

    What are Americans to think?   Maybe he should think twice about running for another term?  I think the nation can survive without him.

    No I'm not suggesting that all criticism of President Obama is racially motivated. I have been highly critical of some of Obama's decisions & policies. But the people who post the same trivial carp every day with no regard to serious problems we face.

    If you ask yourself why, can there be any other reason for the same trivial posts whose sole purpose is to create doubt WHILE NEVER GETTING DRAWN INTO OBJECTIVE DISCUSSION. NO FACTS. NO REAL ISSUES. PURE CARP!
