Ronald Reagan had a working ranch, Rancho Del Cielo, where he had an office and could respond to any national situation if necessary.
George Bush had a working ranch, Prairie Chapel Ranch, where he, too, had an office and could respond to any national situation.
Reagan, Clinton and both Bush's retreated to Camp David often. Don't recall Obama going there much.
Obama would never want to live in Chicago with a working office.
So he goes to resorts and takes his entire entourage of staffers with him. Finding a place to actually perform the duties of the presidency if necessary isn't as easy on the golf course or in the middle of the Grand Canyon or on the beaches in Hawaii.
I am fed up with your lies and deceit, go bother someone else. You are just another troll.

PDF Layers in Obamaís Birth Certificate
We have received several e-mails today calling into question the validity of the PDF that the White House released, namely that there are embedded layers in the document. There are now several other people on the case. We looked into it and dismissed it.
The PDF is composed of multiple images. Thatís correct. Using a photo editor or PDF viewer of your choice, you can extract this image data, view it, hide it, etc. But these layers, as theyíre being called, arenít layers in the traditional photo-editing sense of the word. They are, quite literally, pieces of image data that have been positioned in a PDF container. They appear as text but also contain glyphs, dots, lines, boxes, squiggles, and random garbage. Theyíre not combined or merged in any way. Quite simply, they look like they were created programmatically, not by a human.
Whatís plausible is that somewhere along the way ó from the scanning device to the PDF-creation software, both of which can perform OCR (optical character recognition)ó these partial/pseudo-text images were created and saved. Whatís not plausible is that the government spent all this time manufacturing Obamaís birth certificate only to commit the laughably rookie mistake of exporting the layers from Photoshop, or whatever photo editing software they are meant to have used. Itís likely that whoever scanned the birth certificate in Hawaii forgot to turn off the OCR setting on the scanner. Letís leave it at that.
UPDATE: Iíve confirmed that scanning an image, converting it to a PDF, optimizing that PDF, and then opening it up in Illustrator, does in fact create layers similar to what is seen in the birth certificate PDF. You can try it yourself at home.
UPDATE II: For those of you who still arenít convinced, hereís a one-page PDF that I just scanned and optimized, so you can see for yourself that an optimized PDF shows up in Illustrator as layers.(I didnít spend hours getting the settings right.)
http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/265767/p...
Multiple layers are not edit layers, dufus. If you use a scanner, you do not get the edit layers.
And, I noticed you didn't mention that the borders of the edit layers are coincident with evidence of obvious fraud, such as the half of the signature being obviously generated by a computer beginning exactly where one of the edit layers begins.

And, now, the document number being out of sequence with other people born on the date referenced in the "birth certificate".

It's really a mess there. Watching the footage right now.

But if there's a silver lining to Obama's lack of leadership domestically and globally, it might be the rest of the world realizing we weren't so bad, after all, being the peacekeepers.

Perhaps it would be better to let the world solve their own problems or go down in flames, whichever comes first. Perhaps not. Don't know.

I do know though - whether we or the rest of the world likes it or not - there will be a backlash affecting everyone without some kind of stability soon in the Middle East. How that happens is anyone's guess. Our enemies might just kill each other off for us. Or not. There are no crystal balls. But we aren't immune to the outcome whatever it may be, regardless of what libertarians want to believe on their isolationism platform.

Just give me the strength
To do every day what I have to do.
Yesterday's gone, sweet Jesus,
And tomorrow may never be mine.
Lord, help me today, show me the way.

Yep, that's how I'll make it through another 3 years.
Don't have any other choice. And just hoping and praying Americans realize their mistake the last two times.
The best thing that could happen to America would be a total collapse, complete anarchy, and then to rise up as a stronger Nation based once again ONLY on the Constitution. Too many bloodsuckers for it to thrive in its current state.....

Obama admitted he was incompetent to run. When asked if he would run for precedence he reply "I believe you should know what you are doing when applying for a job"!
Reagan was already a governor, like Sarah Palin, he knew what he was doing.
Obama show up at legislation only 100 times.
No matter how much you twist history, Obama is a nobody next to Reagan, the land slide winner Obama could never beat and Liberals wish he did!!!
So is the Liberals desire to pretend that Obama was a land slide that they see numbers where there are NONE!!!
They add the Internet as a last vain attempt to lie to themselves!!!
See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites.

so present us with the proof that it's fraudulent.
just don't try to use any non-expert 'expert' testimony from one of the 200 birther court cases that have failed to go anywhere.
I've got an idea. How about doing what the so-called birfers want and submit that fraudulent document as evidence in a cour case, instead of Obama's lawyers saying anything to avoid doing that, like in New Jersey when the argument they used was "Obama should be on the ballot because, in New Jersey, Mickey Mouse can be on the ballot."

As long as that obviously fraudulent document is on the White House website, it's just propaganda. If it is ever submitted as evidence in any court room, a felony will have been committed.
Is that the real reason Obama's lawyers say and do anything to avoid complying with what the so-called "birfers" want and have that obviously fraudulent document submitted as evidence of Obama's eligibility? Is it because they know it's fraudulent and they know they will be sent to prison if they submit it?
