Some reboups used language that we kew from the Vietnam era: scorched eart.<quoted text>Obama may've been born in Hawaii, but for some reason, he dallied with the question by not producing a birth certificate, which seems to have been common practice when running for office.

What I clearly don't understand is why it was necessary to dodge the question for three years, seal college records, and even Michelle's high school records, and distance themselves from questionable associates. If you or I were running for president, we can be sure that every demerit and missed assignment and past affiliation would be on the nightly news.

I remember thinking to myself,'that was scary'. Because it wasn't a logic approach, it was pure emotion. But after three plus years, I recognize the gestures, inflections, and am immune to it. Emotion isn't going to solve the fiscal crisis or bring back home values deflated by the wild lending practices fostered by a Democrat congress that passed laws to force lenders to lend to unqualified buyers. Then everybody got into the junk mortgage business, got rich and the rest of us got to suffer the aftereffects.

Hint. Although the congress was Democrat, several still supporting integration, many of the above initiatives came from a Republican.
As in the would rather burn America to the ground than stand for a black president any longer.
Therefore it is inherently irrational to fight the implementation of ideas, just because of the colour of skin and political colour of the president.
