Geez, I can prove my past including my birthplace including my parents, grand-parents and several more generations before them. When I applied for a mortgage the finance people put me and wife through hell to provide proof, evidence, documentation and more... Yet, this usurper and sorry excuse of a human being lies, disgraces our nation and sits in the White House expecting to be honored as a King. Then he tells me I didn't build my business and out of the other side of his mouth he promises not to raise taxes. He's never served in the US Military and won't substantiate himself or his correct SSN let alone his past. He's as corrupt as those that allow him to remain.

Actually, he's offered loads of proof for anyone ready and willing to look at it. For those who will accept NOTHING to prove he isn't a secret Muslim terrorist...so sad. I'm pretty sure he also didn't tell you that you didn't build your business. Check the WHOLE excerpt from that speech without the preceding sentence deleted. He says you didn't build the roads and bridges to your business, and then generally claims that everyone has help in an abstract way. When you patch the quotes together, and omit the sentence in front that clearly shows "that" isn't referring to businesses at all, but rather it refers to roads and bridges, the straw man "I built this" campaign falls apart. But that isn't different than any of the anti-Obama rhetoric.

On the back of my USCG issued Master's license it states in red letters "provided birth certificate as proof of citizenship". What's good for us who pay the bills and who served in uniform ought to be applicible to this lousy, lying enigma posing as potus. Come clean or step down should have been the cry from day one.

Driver's license now requires 2 forms of photo ID, not just a birth certificate, along with hours of waiting. Way more than the identification required to vote,, or to run for president. And apparantly, no ID required at all to be sworn in.

What drives Barack Obama's "doubters and haters"?

So asks Obama biographer David Maraniss in a recent op-ed article for the Washington Post. By doubters and haters he means the people who think Obama wasn't born in the U.S., that he's a secret Muslim or that he's a closet socialist.

He has an answer: "Some of it can be attributed to the give-and-take of today's harsh ideological divide. Some of it can be explained by the way misinformation spreads virally to millions of like-minded people, reinforcing preconceptions. And some of it, I believe, arises out of fears of demographic changes in this...
