The First Lady must be among those hardcore "birthers". I remember Her giving a speech about Africa...among other things,and referred to Kenya as BHO'S homeland. The jist of the article is correct though. This President was supposed to be the "end all" of America's problems,because he was so amazing and intelligent. This country deserves better leaders,and that is the real tragedy.

Leave it up to Obozo to create more controversy when he should be running the country (that is, if he knew how to!). The chosen one who has been complaining for 2 years that it is not a big deal, feeds the frenzy. If it truly was no big deal then why didn't he just leave it alone? Wonder how much he had to pay for that certificate?

Obama SHOULD have left it alone. Never argue with morons. After awhile, people can't tell the difference between you and them.

The only controversy and distraction that have been created have been by the Republicans and Tea Party themselves. Remember that George W got us into this mess. It would take years for anyone to get us out of it.

it seems to me like the tea party is doing an about-face now that their outrageous claims can no longer be susbstantiated. they've been the ones leading the charge against obama and his citizenship, and now that his birth certificate is released, they say it's taking away from real issues.

you can't have it both way folks.

you are absolutely clueless. obama did not create this frenzy. the GOP created this a while ago as a huge diversion to the real issues. i'm sure he would have left it alone if people like donald trump, glen beck and everyone else would have just shut up about it.

Who really cares where he was born? The article is right, there are greater problems than that.

Well, the idiots and the racists have risen before daybreak today to post their ignorant, embarrassing and essentially racist remarks. What's the matter wimps? Can't you accept that a black man can be president of the United States - or would you rather have some hair-brained white man like Donald Trump calling the shots. Crawl back in your holes.

What gets me is he stated that it's time to get back to more important business and he runs off to tape a show on Oprah and then goes to two fundraisers.

He is a disgrace to our country.

Remember that George W was working with a Democratic congress that wouldn't do diddly.

Forgive me, but who was being racist in these posts?? So every person that disagrees with how Obama runs this country is a racist? What about a black man that doesn't support Obama? Is he racist? Quit bringing up the race card, it's not even an issue.

Let's face it folks - so many of you can't stand the fact that the majority of Americans voted for this "mixed race" brilliant man to lead reform in Washington.(he is not "Negro", not "African American", nor "Black".) He is not a white "six-day" Christian, but, hey, get over it!
No president in history has had to face all at once the challenges of the Jewish-controlled investment bank and mortgage company games, the resulting housing crisis, the illegal war that George W. Bush started (watch for a developing movement to have him brought to justice for war crimes!), an economy that has transferred power and riches to the wealthiest one percent through the Bush tax cuts, and a disfunctional government where decent people trying to be elected have to fight ads and disinformation produced with essentially unlimited funding from special interests thanks to the ruling on campaign funding by the supreme court.
These racist posters dishonor our many solders whose lives have been sacrificed to defend our democratic way of life. You are truly the "un-American" ones, and a good case can be made that the Republican Party is now the bigger threat to the future of American than Al Quada!
NOTE: "Six-day Christian" is my term for those who believe the earth was created in 6 days, contrary to what we now now about the universe.
Now poor george claims she is an army vet!

That's the problem with serial name changers --Lying!

WHY....WHY.....WHY...IF the matter of a birth certificate that ALL other presidential candidates were glad to let be known....WHY was it that it took 2 years for this small bit of paper to surface? All of this is something that smacks of something to take away from the real issues of today's society.
True or False now let it rest....get on with solving the real issues and I don't mean pull out that da*^n race card that keeps popping up it's ugly head just to distract everyone and keep the controversy stired up.

Who's the racist Raven? You're the only one bringing up race; that's all you liberals have to say. Aren't there any other arguments inside those pea brains of yours? Those people who have been waiting for the first black president deserved better than Obama. His unbelieveable incompetence is tragic for your cause but worse for America.

This was a non-issue from the get-go, but people kept complaining, so he produced it. Now you're going to complain about how long it took. How long will it take before they run out of silly complaints and get down to REAL ones? Y'all are tiring.

Probably to allow people who promulgated the lie (ie. Taylor and Funk) to look foolish. Tea party anyone?
