It seems so simple to me. Do you want 4 more of "his highness" or not? QED

Enough said. Anyone but the faux American with the faux birth certificate.

He does not have a faux birth certificate. For crying out loud will you birthers get over it already - you're not helping with that crap. It's expressly because of you conspiratorial types that goofball RINOs like Romney paint all Conservatives with the broad brush of kookiness. Obama is indeed legally eligible to be president - it's just his ideology & his upbringing are anti-American / foreign. That's the problem, not his Kenyan / Indonesian history. Heck, for every American-born left wing loon who hates this country, there are 1000s of foreign born citizens & citizen hopefuls who love America. It's not about where Obama was born - it's about where his heart resides. I'd trade 1000 American lefties for one freedom-loving Cuban.

He does have a fraudulent birth certificate, but it's only the Constitution so who cares?
Mitt Romney's presidential run could turn out to be a test case to resolve the long-running debate inside the Republican Party as to whether the GOP presidential nominee should run as a conservative or more of a centrist.

How often have we heard both Democratic and Republican political "experts" reciting the conventional wisdom that during primary contests, candidates of both parties must play to their respective base voters and then shift toward the center during the general election campaign? Does anyone even challenge this edict?

The first problem with this is that it implicitly suggests that all presidential candidates are first and foremost...
