Yes, I would like it if you could provide that interview.
Go ahead, I will wait.
You can stop holding your breath.
It isn't very convincing.



He was trying to say McCain was implying he was a Muslim.

Used the term "my muslim faith" while improvising an answer.

It is like when he joked about his numbers in Kenya and a bunch of overeager people claimed that it was the breakthrough they were looking for. Proof the birther were right all along...lol.

Obama isn't a muslim... secret or otherwise.

Right, neither Bingham, Howard, nor Trumbull understood the comma, nor did the appellate courts and supreme court.
LOL.
The law shouldn't be read by people who are birthers, fools, who couldn't pass middle school English.
If birfoon Dale can read, he should notice I have used the comma in the same manner as did Sen. Howard. All three, birthers, fools, and (persons) who couldn't pass middle school English refer to the same object (people who possess all three characteristics).
In Howard's, statement,(born) foreigners,(born) aliens, and (persons) who belong to the families of ambassadors are predicated of the same object, i.e., persons excluded from birthright citizenship.
Grow up Dufus, you're out of your league.

I appreciate the interjection but I knew exactly what was being asked. I asked for the interview, not an excerpt. There are numerous snippets of Presidential interviews that malign the speaker - from Reagan's "I love wearing dresses." (he was referencing his daughter) to W's "My mother was an evil woman." (he was referencing those who attacked his mother for being a domineering woman). Snippets are entertaining.

Say it ain't so Frank.

Really? A guy in office lying to us?

Maybe if the last two decades didn't set the gold standard for govt lies... people would pay more attention.

He is just the most recent guy to lie for the govt.

You can't possibly know if he is the most corrupt in the last 25 years, let alone history.

LMAO!!! There is a requirement to our "jus soli", when born here you can't be subject to any foreign power, this can only be accomplished with two citizen parents.

People in the military are PEOPLE too. They have families and needs ad they are worn out.
Well Bill Clinton took over we had 14 Army Divisions and when he left we were down to ten and now we are down to about six and those six are empty shells.
History tells a different tale: The Active Component downsizing program was tasked by the Quadrennial Defense Review panel with contemporizing our Army. We do not need 500,000+ soldiers in today's Army.

Reorganizing our Army minimizes risks, while improving deployment and strategic mobility. Further, we do not require heavy divisions of field artillery, as we once did. While we reduced armor and mechanized companies, we increased dismounted infantry personnel and added reconnaissance and intelligence troops.

Efficiency is the name of the game. Mission critical is the modus operandi for today's Army.

You started drinking early today, huh? It's okay, I understand your need to drown your bitterness - bad genetics, life choices and education doomed you. Carry on - 2016 will be even easier for the DNC.

You are incorrect.

It is ironic that when Republicants whine about undocumented workers coming here and having babies so that they can gain citizenship, they dismiss their Obama argument. ROTFLMAO!

Maybe the GOP will run someone who has a shot next time.

Communist alien trumps another corporate business asshole every time.

How do you qualify that Dale?

"low information voters"... if they weren't informed enough to make a decision then they would be split between the two candidates.

If only they had believed the same propaganda you swallowed...

7 FAM 1111 INTRODUCTION
(CT:CON-407; 06-29-2012)
a. U.S. citizenship may be acquired either at birth or through naturalization
subsequent to birth. U.S. laws governing the acquisition of citizenship at birth
embody two legal principles:
(1) Jus soli (the law of the soil)- a rule of common law under which the place
of a person’s birth determines citizenship. In addition to common law, this
principle is embodied in the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and
the various U.S. citizenship and nationality statutes.
(2) Jus sanguinis (the law of the bloodline)- a concept of Roman or civil law
under which a person’s citizenship is determined by the citizenship of one
or both parents. This rule, frequently called “citizenship by descent” or
“derivative citizenship”, is not embodied in the U.S. Constitution, but such
citizenship is granted through statute. As U.S. laws have changed, the
requirements for conferring and retaining derivative citizenship have also
changed.
That is what we use to determine citizenship - not fantasy.

Jacques,
I am not going to let a golden opportunity go to waste when I see one, wide open free and clear.
I like to think of myself as a counter-balance who unites a chink in the armor on the one side with a wedge that needs a drivin' on the other.

The Supreme Court and 10 lower courts ruled otherwise. Oops. You get trumped again.
