A good reference in case we ever need to remember what a competent, hard working and trustworthy President of the United States of America actually looks like.

We could all use a reminder.

While all the dumb liberals are tearing down statues of famous great men who did wonders for our country & then putting up obama's picture is pure nonsense. He did absolutely nothing but divide our great country & bring back extreme racism especially blacks against whites' including police.

“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;” Look up Vattel’s Law of Nations, section 212, that’s the guiding principles our founders used for Natural Born Citizen. And THAT is why Alexander Hamilton could not run for president.
A person who is born of just one parent who is a citizen of the United States is a citizen by birth, but not Natural Born Citizen. Someone cannot hold or have held dual citizenship with a foreign country and be a Natural Born Citizen. The fact that we are confused by this qualification, or perhaps even wish to alter this qualification, must be because we do not understand WHY this qualification was established in the first place. So, before we take a stand either way, we must consider the reasons why this qualification was established by the framers of the American Constitution.
The whole reason the president must be a Natural Born Citizen is because our framers had a history full of foreign kings imposing foreign law and foreign favor upon the people and they knew how dangerous foreign influence was to Liberty. Just as the birth of a child on US soil does not create citizenship in the parent, the birthplace of the child does not establish the status of Natural Born Citizen. Throughout history citizenship has been based upon the criteria of the parents.
Obama was the ONLY president born since 1787, when our Constitution was ratified, with a parent who was never an American citizen. Apparently we needed an almost half-black president so bad they made an exception for Kenyan-born BHO.

This just adds to the proof of how Racist the Left is. The Left chose 2 black artists to paint these portraits because....they were black. Why did they not choose and Asian, American Indian, Spanish or Caucasian artist ? We all know why - because they were not black. That is Racist Liberalism at it's core.

Yeah lol. I’ve read a little bit about this story today from a couple different sources and both sources really wanted you to know that the painters were black. They really made it clear that the painters were black lol.

BHO isn't even half-black as he had a paternal great-grandmother who was an Arab-Bedouin which is Caucasoid.
Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, the true Messiah, today.
You can’t take your salvation for a test drive. You’re all-in or not.
Admit to Him that you are a sinner in need of forgiveness, that you are truly sorry for your sins. Acknowledge that He died for your sins, rose from the dead and lives forevermore. Invite Him into your life and to help you to turn from sin. Rejoice! You just became a Christian! Now trust in Him and get to know Him through the Bible which tells us everything we need to know and through prayer/talking to Him. He eagerly desires relationship with you.

I don't think Michelle's looked like her that much and for his... I don't get the busy background. I would think as a president it would have been a little more formal.
