Isn't the losing presidential candidate the son of a Mexican? What about that? But, not unlike his Mexican father who ran for the presidency, no contestation naeded, the point if moot. lol, he LOST. Oh, what about all those planned celebrations in Boston, fireworks etc that had to be taken down, unexploded, ha ha? And, oh, he was slaughtered in his own state, as was hoodlum 24-hour gun purchase Ryan in his home state too. Time to eat your own slop, losers.

President didn’t win single state that required Voter ID
By Aaron Klein @ WND

Did the suppression or lack of voter ID laws aid President Obama’s victory over Mitt Romney?

Obama did not win a single state that requires photo IDs to vote, although he was victorious in four states that require non-photo identification – Washington, Colorado, Ohio and Virginia. Those states accept as legitimate identification current utility bills, bank statements and paychecks.

Obama won several closely contested states that do not require any voter identification, including Minnesota, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Wisconsin and Nevada.

The states that Obama lost that do require photo identification do not traditionally vote Republican. Tennessee, for example, voted Democrat in the 1972, 1992 and 1996 presidential elections. Georgia, which also requires photo ID, voted Democrat in the 1976, 1980 and 1992 presidential elections.

In Colorado, where non-photo identification is accepted, a review by showed irregular voting patterns, finding that 10 counties had a total registration ranging between 104 to 140 percent of the respective populations.
Math test. If your State voted Democrat in 3 of the last 10 elections (not counting 2012 - 3 of 11 if you do) how many times did it go Republican? If 70 percent of the time doesn't make you a "traditional Republican State", what does?

(But it is good to know that voter IDs did their job where enacted)

And now today out comes Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.(D-Ill.) seeking a plea bargain with prosecutors for campaign finance irregularities which include, but are not limited to, the purchase of a $4o,ooo dollar Rolex watch for a secret female harlot.
I hope he goes to prison, Jacques.

In other words, you wish Obama bad luck. You don't want him to succeed on the sole grounds that you don't like him. And you call yourself a patriot?

Weird stories about birth certificates and illegitimate Mugabe's son, Barry Mugabe, who was conceived by raping a 32 blond white women during the 60's and when the Muslim religious groups wanted to stone her to death, she escaped with her son to an island paradise in Indonesia. Sounds like a Spielberg Lincoln hollywood fable.

You're not a man. You're a pile of dishonest dishonourable crap who won't admit he was wrong, was way off. Suggested confession for you :

"I apologize for all that filthy language I used on Obama. Obama won big. I was wrong all the way. Barack Obama is a real American who was just re-elected to a second term. Congratulations, MR. PRESIDENT."

Yep, four more years of corruption. And forty more years of recession.
And bingo, so much for your spiteful wish, Rogue. You want your nation in the dumpster just so you can be right. I don't understand. I hated it when my current prime minister was elected as I can't stand him and his party. Yet, damn it, am I nuts or what? I still wished at the time, and still do, that he would nevertheless succeed as MY P.M., not bring the nation down just because I don't like him.|If he fails, I fail. If Obama succeeds, YOU succeed and you can still vote Republican in 2016, Rogue. Won't do you much good, though, Hillary will win it with one of the Castro twins as V.P. and future president.

PS for you, Terry.

You are a true patriot and American citizen, respectful of the Constitution. Why? Because, had Romney won, you would have accepted it with grace and class and wished him every success. THAT, to me , is what you fought for when you served. Birthers and tea partyers need to understand that. Thank you.

No need to move on.
The place of birth cannot be proven with a fraudulent birth certificate.
Besides, we must keep hope alive, right?
The birth certificate is not fraudulent.

Only birther "experts"---who have not proved that they are really experts, and who certainly have not proved that they are fair and impartial say that there is anything wrong with the image of Obama's birth certificate.

The birther "experts" include Paul Irey, who has repeatedly claimed that Obama did not attend Columbia College, despite the fact that Columbia University has stated that Obama did attend (and that he graduated). And they include Doug Vogt, who claims to have found the original altar of Abraham. It is such "experts" as these that the birthers rely on for their case.

There are many real experts who say that there is nothing wrong with Obama's birth certificate, including John Woodman, who happens to be a member of the Tea Party and who dislikes Obama and Obama's policies, but shows that the birther "experts" are wrong. They also include Ivan Zatkovich, who was hired by WND to examine the image of Obama's birth certificate, and when he submitted his report that there was nothing wrong with Obama's birth certificate, WND simply did not publish it.

As for Sheriff Joe and his posse:


It is clear that rational conservatives do not believe the "birth certificate was forged" claims. Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck and the National Review certainly do not.

And the conservative secretary of state of Arizona asked Hawaii to confirm that Obama was born there and to confirm specified facts on Obama's birth certificate. Hawaii did, stating that it compared the image of Obama's birth certificate with the file copy (which is an additional confirmation that there was a file copy BTW) and that Obama was born there and that the facts match.

The secretary of state of Arizona accepted this confirmation and ruled that Obama will be on the ballot in Arizona in November, and he was--and he was on the ballot in ALL the states (and he won both the electoral college vote and the popular vote by more than two and a half million votes). This indicates that the conservative secretary of state of Arizona does not believe the claims that the birth certificate is forged (including those of Sheriff Joe) and that he does believe the officials in Hawaii.

How do we know that there is a birth certificate for Obama in the files in Hawaii and that it shows that Obama was born in Hawaii??

The first way is the short form birth certificate. That was created by a clerk copying the information off of the original document in the files. If there were no document, there could be no short form birth certificate. Hawaii has confirmed that it sent a short form birth certificate (COLB) to Obama.

The second way is that Hawaii said that there is, several times, under both Republican and Democrat governors.

The third reason is that the current director of health of Hawaii stated in a letter that she had seen the long form birth certificate being created by photocopying onto security paper the original document that was in the files.

The fourth reason is that the existence of Obama's birth certificate in 1961 is proven by the birth notices sent to the newspapers of Hawaii in 1961 by the DOH of Hawaii. Only the DOH could send those notices to the Health Bureau Statistics section of the papers, and the DOH sent only sent those notices for children whom it had issued birth certificates for.

Would you like me to post the citations of the confirmations by the officials in Hawaii?

I myself followed the Huff Post model which was there every day for all to see right on up to Election Day. They didn’t get all the states right by accident Rogue nor were the dealing with gut feelings. @pollster
I followed the NY Times blog by Nate Silver. I highly recommend following Nate. Nate got all 50 states right in the presidential race, assuming Florida holds for Obama. AND he only got one state political race wrong! In 2008 Nate got 49 states and D.C. right. There is no better political statistition than Nate Silver.
