Obama Releases Birth Certificate

April 27th, 2011 // 212 Comments

“Robot HOOUUUUSEEEE! I mean, Obama.”

President Obama apparently woke up this morning and decided to see how many times he could make Donald Trump‘s toupee spin because he just released his supposedly mythical long form Hawaiian birth certificate which is now available on the White House blog:

The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn’t good for the country. It may have been good politics and good TV, but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country. Therefore, the President directed his counsel to review the legal authority for seeking access to the long form certificate and to request on that basis that the Hawaii State Department of Health make an exception to release a copy of his long form birth certificate. They granted that exception in part because of the tremendous volume of requests they had been getting.
At a time of great consequence for this country – when we should be debating how we win the future, reduce our deficit, deal with high gas prices, and bring stability to the Middle East, Washington, DC, was once again distracted by a fake issue. The President’s hope is that with this step, we can move on to debating the bigger issues that matter to the American people and the future of the country.

Of course, the most hilarious part about all this is like it means anything. The people, unlike Donald Trump, who genuinely believe Obama is a secret Kenyan assassin plotting to turn the Constitution into Sharia Law wouldn’t be convinced he’s an American if they watched him be birthed on Texas soil in the backseat of a Chevrolet filled with apple pie. The guy could spear Osama Bin Laden through the chest with a bald eagle, yelling “Free markets, HOOOOO!” and they’d still be sitting there going, “Yeah, I dunno. Maybe if he didn’t have black skin. Not trying to be racist!”

UPDATE: Someone’s got a boner. Via TMZ:

“Today I’m very proud of myself, because I’ve accomplished something that no one else has been able to accomplish.”
Trump added, “I want to look at it, but I hope it’s true so that we can get on to much more important matters … he should have done it a long time ago.”
He continued, “I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue.”
As for the actual document, Trump added, “We have to look at it, we have to see … is it real? Is it proper? What’s on it? But I hope it checks out beautifully.”

Read: “Shit, he actually released it? That’s, uh, that’s what I wanted all along. Yes… yes… *rubs chin*

        well, to each his own. i’m first, you’re a loser :P

      • To hell with both of you. I’m hitting reply, so my comment can go up here, instead of down in bottom-of-the-page bumblefuck. Something about Trumps hair, Obama’s race, something, something, something. OK, let the rest of the comments begin.

    • Jeff in St Louis

      I still believe that he is a Keynesian, and challenge anyone on this site to prove he isn’t.

      • Obama

        Why does it matter? hes RICH BITCH! Also even if he came out tomorrow and said Yes I am Kenyan what are you gonna do about it? Invade the white house with your army of 1?

  2. Andy

    Trump will never run for President because he’d have to disclose his personal finances and everyone would see that he’s worth far less than he pretends to be.

    • SuperficialAdmin

      Everyone in life pretends to be worth more. like when you date a bitch you make her think youre a doctor so you get a blowjob by the end of the date then you can tell her you work part time at Albertsons. WIN.

    • Jim Jones

      Shame Trump didn’t just accept the overwhelming proof prior to wasting all his time and money on this. I’m guessing the team he sent to Hawaii to “investigate” is disappointed that this came out, since now they’ll have to come home.

      And I thought Trump said he’d release all his financial info if Obama produced his birth certificate, but then we already know Trump isn’t a man of his word, so I don’t expect to see that info any time soon.

    • Kat

      Please, he’s not SERIOUSLY running for president. He’s drumming up publicity. We might have elected a few former actors, but the host of celebrity apprentice? Never.

  3. Rancid

    Trump looks like he has a tribble on his head.

    I’ve always suspected Obama of being half-Klingon. If Trump’s hair ever shrieks in Obama’s presence, that would put the matter to rest.

  4. Snooki's Taint

    Donald Trump can’t run for president unless he divorces his what, third? in a series of eastern european trophy whores, and make a proper American his wife.

    • Bim

      Marla Maples Trumps 2nd wife is American born fyi @ snooki

    • The Critical Crassness

      There is no requirement for the nation of origin of the President’s wife. In fact, there isn’t even a requirement that she be human.

      • Please, I guarantee you that there are a group of people out there who read your comment and thought to themselves “Nuh-uh! This is ‘Murica! We don’t want no Yeropeen commie bitch in the White House!” And I also guarantee that about half of those hate the idea because they’re xenophobic, and the other half hate it because they think if Trump dies she’ll become Queen of America or something.

    • Kat

      Actually, the whoring about would hurt him in the primaries since the religious right seems to value the institution of marriage pretty highly. But Trump just wants publicity; his money gives him enough power as it is. But, my God, his ego must have its own gravitational pull at this point.

      He is SO entertaining.

    What a dipshit.

    He should’ve kept it to make them look like even bigger idiots. They don’t have shit to stand on, other than this -

    DEMAGOGUERY: The Republican strategy for gaining political power by appealing to the ignorance, prejudices, emotions, fears, vanities and expectations of the public – typically by impassioned rhetoric, lies and propaganda, often using nationalist, populists and religious themes as a cover for the orator’s and his own party’s incompetence, corruption and tyranny…

  7. hollywood_hillbilly

    I like how he waited a while to do this, maximizes the amount of stupid people playing their dipshit cards.

    • Rex Zeitgeist

      He should have waited until the election. Every time a birther opens his yap, another independent decides to vote for Obama.

      • Oh like this will shut the birthers up.

        Although I’m fairly sure he was holding on to the cert until he could humiliate someone relatively important with it.

    • Jim Jones

      Yeah, I love how he waited so long to do this after the Federal Election Commission verification, publicly releasing his birth certificate when he was running, and having the (Republican) governor of Hawaii vouching for his birth.

  8. stevebeagle

    now lets get to real issues.

    • Ron Burgundy

      Exactly. The American people need to know what kind of music he listens to because if he likes rap then, goddammit, he can’t possibly be qualified to run this country.
      Unlike George Bush, who we know for sure was born here by his obvious lack of education….

      • duh

        No Bush fan here, but he did graduate Yale and got a Harvard MBA, AND he released his transcripts. Obama has yet to release ANY transcripts. Yet somehow, *he* is the “uneducated one.”
        You’re a fuckin’ sap, Burgundy.

      • eatme

        “(Bush) released his transcripts”
        what does this mean, exactly?

        The birthing movement has been proven laughably wrong and everyone who was on that bandwagon should now have to suck multiple dicks. That Trump CCN interview made Trump look like an absolute moron.

      • Rex Zeitgeist

        Obama graduated magna cum laude Harvard Law. Bush got by with “gentleman’s C’s” plus he went to Harvard MBA because UT Law turned him down.

  9. Cock Dr

    This issue is a dead horse that will continue to be beaten hard & often.
    Trump’s a self-promoting buffoon.

  11. elizabeth

    Wow, the race card? Jesus… I don’t understand why it is racist to want to see someone’s birth certificate. lol.

    • Well it may not be racist….but it sure is COINCIDENTAL that he’s the only President who’s been under so much scrutiny to provide a Birth Certificate when he ALREADY did multiple times and people STILL wouldn’t get off his case.

      • biancadatwat

        he didn’t release his birth certificate multiple times. are you dumb because you are a liberal or a woman?

      • Seriously? This generation has no idea how to troll…

        If this is the best you can do I just feel sorry for you.

      • Jim Jones

        Um, he did release his birth certificate prior to the election, the Federal Election Commission verified his legitimacy, and the (Republican) governor of Hawaii vouched for his long-form birth certificate. Not to mention he had the might of Hillary Clinton and the Republican Party that sure as hell would have noticed if it weren’t legit. Asshat.

    • Ashley

      Any other president of the United States get asked for a birth certificate? No. And were they all white? Yes.

      Not all racism is an overt action.

    • lolno

      Because you racist douchebags never cared about a birth certificate before an OMG BLACK PERSON got into your precious White House. You’re a fucking idiot if you can’t see how blatantly racist it is. Go back to your Klan rally, you moron.

    • Karen

      The stupidest part about this whole thing is that while I’m sure race played a part in the Birther’s thinking, I honestly think that what scared them the most is Barack Hussein Obama’s NAME. I’m not sure you get much more stupid than someone’s name scaring you.

      • jenyjenjen

        It’s another method in the Republicans fear mongering campaign. Say his middle name as loud and as often as possible to scare the ignorant white trash who use words like A-rab and believe being Muslim (which he is not) in and of itself is inherently bad.

      • duh

        It’s only bad if you HIDE it. That’s where the problems arise. If it was no big deal, then why have they gone to such great lengths to HIDE everything? Birth certificate, college transcripts, medical records, his religion…hell all we have to go on is the drivel in his stupid books. Which is sophomoric and racist.

      • Jake

        Or thae fact that he went to an extremest Muslim School.

        Or that when asked, his grandmother said he was born in Kenya.

        Nothing to see there…. move along.

      • obiwankendrobi

        We’ll refer to him as President “He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named” so people won’t get so frightened.

    • eatme


      Again, seriously do some research.

      Obama released his “short form” birth certificate years ago. In the state of Hawaii, it is this document that is the “legal” one (for ALL intents and purposes), not the long-form one. Seriously, people who go one about this very quickly prove how fucking ignorant they are.


  12. elizabeth

    when Donald Trump ran for president the first time as a DEMOCRAT, it was actually a new twist plot for his successful television show finale. He has a finale coming up…….. anyone? anyone? duh..

    • Bucky Barnes

      Bingo! Just like his staged feuds with Rosie or a hundred other gimmicks it’s only about shameless self promotion, Trump doesn’t actually want to be president. although I’m certain the prestige of the office appeals to his oversized ego. Trump got where he is by using his inheritance as a stepladder and picking low-hanging fruit. He doesn’t work hard for anything.

    • TomFrank

      And…strike three for idiot commenter elizabeth. Donald Trump has NEVER run for president, let alone as a Democrat. He only ever strongly considered running for president before as a Reform Party candidate, in 2000. Prior to that, he was a registered Republican.

      The most you can say is that in 2001, Trump re-registered his party affiliation as a Democrat (from the Reform Party); and then re-re-registered as a Republican in 2009. So Trump only switched to the Democratic Party during the George W. Bush years. And really, can you blame him?

      • jenyjenjen

        Elizabeth, you may go now.

      • Truth

        The Washington Post reviews Donald Trump’s political contributions over his lifetime and concludes that he has given most of his money to Democrats. Trump “has made more than $1.3 million in donations over the years to candidates nationwide, with 54 percent of the money going to Democrats.”

    • @Elizabeth:Duh Youself.
      Nobody believed Trump was doing this for anything other than publicity, we know he will use any cheap trick including playing into propoganda. Anybody who believes otherwise is a moron.
      That’s not the point. By Trump doing this, he only helped fuel the racism that others secretly had towards Obama under the guise of asking to produce a Birth Ceritficate. Each time Obama rightfully declined,this was mistakingly viewed as another ‘point’ on their racist scorecard against him.
      So instead of dealing with foreign policy, the war, social security and millions of other IMPORTANT things, Obama had to deal with this stupid shit.

    • Karen

      Elizabeth, you’re a moron. There’s not much more to say.

    • Jim Jones

      Trump was also in favor of universal health care as recently as 2001, probably up until Obama championed it.

  13. In the minds of all the Apalachian buttfucks who believed this shit to begin with, this only proved one thing: Aliens Exist.

    • Subtle reminder: The notion that Obama wasn’t born in this country was brought up by Hillary Clinton. She’s a Democrat, but I forgot – you guys write your own history.

      • Jennyjenjen

        It was actually brought up in anonymous emails leaked by Clinton supporters. A dirty trick indeed. Those who ran with it however are the low intelligence buffoons with a racist agenda called Birthers.. Or, in another era they would have been called Klansmen.

      • TomFrank

        Another FAIL. The origins of the “birther conspiracy” can be traced to a hard-core splinter group of Hillary Clinton supporters who brought the issue up as a desperate last-ditch attempt to derail Obama’s nomination in Clinton’s favor.

        Hillary Clinton herself never brought the issue up, nor did her campaign ever authorize it.

      • @Eric: It was leaked by Clinton supporters, not her and further more, anybody who believed this crap is has a “hillbilly” mentality.

        PS-Aren’t you the dumbass that asked how France knew Jay-Z existed??
        But I forgot-you guys think the States is the center of the universe and know nothin’ bout no nothin’ about Georgraphy.
        .”I believe the reason why 50% of Americans cannot find the United States on a Map is because they do not own Maps”…

      • duh

        Jennyjenjen, you are a dolt. Typical lib: totally ruled by emotion, with no fact or reason to back up what you “feel” is right, resorting to accusing any and all who want to speak truth to power as “racist.” Fuck you.

    • SuperT

      Apalachian buttfucks, hillbilly mentality? Birther idiots are not localized to one region. No region of this country is free of morons, racists, and the uneducated.

      • Never said it was..I never said the only ppl who believed this were Appalachian, I simply made a satirical comment about all of them seperate from the rest of the larger debate and ‘who’ believed ‘what’.

    • Jennyjenjen

      I agree, it was disappointing. Trump is such an asshole. Such a sense of entitlement. Who the hell does he think he is? Now he’s stating he will have to “take a look at it”. Why on Earth does he think he has the right to handle the presidents birth certificate? I’ve never seen anyone with such a huge ego. Clearly it stems for his deficiencies elsewhere, and not just on top of his head. I agree with the above poster who said Trump will never run because he doesn’t want his finances released so we can see as Forbes suggests he’s worth about 2 billion, tied in a 6 way tie for 153rd richest man in America. He would like you to believe he’s worth 7 billion. For such a wealthy man he sure is bankrupt.

      Obama has been bowing down to everyone since the day he took office. I believe it was the arabs who first got him to bow before them.

    O.k can some jewish guy please show this Donald Trump what REAL MONEY IS???

    I fucking hate Donald Trump like I hate arm cellulite.

  22. I don’t know what bug crawled up Trump’s ass, but this is either for big ratings or some other financial goal. It has nothing really to do with politics.


    He (trump) may also be trying to actively hurt the GOP. The more assholes get up on the television set screaming about the president isn’t an American or any of the other shit from the right’s playbook, the more it alienates moderate voters and that’s where you win elections. This isn’t a tossup for town Sheriff, this is the presidency. That shit is not going to fly this time or Obama is going to get a second term. This is especially acute because the guy has ended up being pretty middle of the road and reasonable.

    That is, of course, if Trump was trying to be contrary and coy, but who knows..

    I never bought that “Obama isn’t an American” shit. I mean, really. People honestly thought a major political party would run a guy who wasn’t eligible? I’m more interested in a full financial disclosure from Trump and his hair piece. I’ve read allegations that he isn’t worth anywhere near what he claims.

    • eatme

      The birthers who didn’t do their research and didn’t understand the legal differences between the long-form birth certificate and the already produced short-form ones are plain fucking stupid.

      The legitimate concern was that the long-form one had something on it that Obama wished to hide, possibly religion.

  26. .unknown.

    Birthers need to get their jugs and get back to having hoedowns because they seriously suck at caring about their country.

  27. First, Donald Trump was wrong to pursue this. It made him look like a fool.

    Second, this whole “birther” issue was brought about by Hillary Clinton, back when she was campaigning for President. She’s a Democrat, in case anybody forgot. Get your shit straight before you open your mouth.

    Third, why is it that anyone who questions anything at all about Obama is labeled a racist? Can’t a black guy be incompetent?

    Fourth, Obama doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in Hell of being re-elected not because there is a question of his birthplace or his religion, but because he has been ineffectual as a President and he is wiping his ass with the Constitution.

    And finally, fifth. We need a President that can run the country, not look good in a suit. Maybe Barack can go off on another golf vacation and let Biden run the country. He certainly couldn’t do any worse.

  28. s'up bitches

    Now what the hell is asshole Trump going to have to do to occupy his time between bankruptcy filings?

    I’m sure faking a birth certificate is pretty tough.

  31. Juano

    All this proves is that Trump is akin to the skid marks on an old set of underpants. In fact, he’s more like a pant load after too much chili and beans.

    And Eric, there’s nothing wrong with questioning somebody’s competence, but that isn’t what the Donald did; he asserted that “his people” had information proving that Obama wasn’t born in the US. How is that questioning the guy’s competence; it’s questioning his integrity and playing into the “he’s not like us” crowd. And how is it that he isn’t like us? Gee, I dunno, hmmmmm, because he’s BLACK? So, questioning competence, not racist; raising stupid questions about where he was born, feels like something more than normal scepticism to me!

  32. Ish KaBibble

    This douchebag makes me miss Sarah Palin.

  33. jen

    this is unbelievable. the sheer idiocy of these people. the response from birthers should not be ‘oh see, i’m so proud of myself in playing a role in this’, it should be ‘wow, i’m a fucking idiot and i’m really sorry’.

  35. Robert Acquafresca

    You idiots on the left do not get it. Do you know what a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN IS?? You must be one to be President of the USA. We only want his long form bc so we can confirm what he said which is BHO Sr is his daddy. BHO Sr is not american, he is Kenyan. To be a natural born citizen, you must be born in the USA to two USA citizen parents. Obama was not because his dad is Kenyan/British. He is ineligible to be President and should be removed from office and lead out in handcuffs with all the other traitors that allowed it to happen.

    No one cares where he was born. Educate yourself. He just sealed his own fate with that document even if it is legit. What kind of man holds on to it to allow a military officer who asked to see it to go to prison and lose all his benefits.

    The dumbing down of american continues and you liberals think your hero just bitch slapped everyone by releasing that so called document. Instead he just confirmed that he is not eligible to be POTUS!!

    • TomFrank

      “To be a natural born citizen, you must be born in the USA to two USA citizen parents.”

      *BUZZ* Wrong! Thanks for playing.

      • TomFrank

        Other presidents with foreign-born parents: Thomas Jefferson (English-born mother), Andrew Jackson (Irish-born parents), James Buchanan (Irish-born father), Andrew Johnson (possibly English-born father), Chester A. Arthur (Irish-born father), and Herbert Hoover (Canadian-born mother).

      • here’s a typewriter as a condolence prize

      • Eric

        Just ask any child born from illegal aliens if that’s true.

      • Robert Acquafresca

        Ok..ill play some more…Chester Arthur was ineligible just like Obama. If you read the Constitution, the nbc clause only applies to candidates at the time the Constitution was made or before. Duh. Otherwise George Washington and TJ were ineligible. As for the others you mention, were their parents naturalized ameircans prior to the candidates birth. If so, then they were citizens when the candidate was born and thus the candidate was nbc. For a simpler example, Trumps mom was born in Scotland, she became naturalized american before Trump was born. Thus Trump can be President as he is a nbc.

        Learn what these terms mean Tom.

    • Karen

      This is so wrong, it’s ridiculous. I knew there were going to be people who argued over this even after it was proved that he was an American born citizen. His MOTHER is from Kansas. BUT I guarantee that if both parents had been born in Kansas, and one grandparent was from Kenya, there would have been some argument that he’s still not a natural born citizen because Grandpa is from Kenya.
      You need to educate YOURself. No one cares where his parents were born. The entire argument was over whether Obama himself was born in the US.
      “On July 27, 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.Res. 593, commemorating the 50th anniversary of Hawaii’s statehood, including the text, “Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961″. The vote passed 378–0.
      Do a little research before you post.

    • The Critical Crassness

      Robert, I think you better do a good deal more research before commenting on the concept of “natural born citizen”. Your response is a typical “birther” misquoting of the facts. Had you bothered to read a little more and parrot lies a little less, you would have found that since long before the Obama birth certificate situation, the Constitutional clause relating to the meaning of “natural born citizen” has been interpreted to mean a. any person who is born on U.S. soil of a single parent, not owing allegiance to a foreign government. or b. any person born on U.S. soil regardless of the citizenship of their parents.
      The concept of the constitutional requirement of citizenship is an archaic one at best, because the original intent of this requirement was to bar those owing allegiance to the British Crown from becoming President and realigning the country under British rule.
      Of course since the “birthers” don’t bother to study history or for that matter factual evidence, you will continue to parrot bullshit…the dumbing down of America certainly does continue because of morons like yourself.

      • Jesus…I”m not sure why I let myself get baited into arguing with idiots like this, but hey…I need a hobby.

        The term “natural born citizen” means nothing more than “citizen by right of birth” as opposed to “becoming a citizen through naturalization process”.

        A child of a US citizen is a US citizen NO MATTER WHERE THEY ARE BORN. Even if Obama WAS born in Kenya, he’d still be a US citizen because his MOTHER was a US citizen.

      • Amy

        It happens to the best of us McFeely :(. I prefer to go the path of ridicule though. Reality is lost on some people, and thank god it is. Just imagine what the Superficial would be like without the likes of Britney Spears and Charlie Sheen?

      • Robert Acquafresca

        I have done plenty of research Critical. A person can be a citizen without being a natural born citizen. Being a citizen is not enough to be President. To be a natural born citizen, which you need to be to be President, you must be born in the USA of two USA citizen parents. Why do you think the framers put this in the Constitution. It is to avoid somone with foreign allegiances ie say the leader of Russia, visiting the USA, impregnating an american, and that baby born in USA becoming President.

        Before you start calling people a moron, do some research on your own and read the case law. At worst, its an undecided issue that needs to be heard by the Supreme Court so why do all these lawsuits get dismissed for lack of standing.

        Forget the fact he spent all this money hiding it for so long(assume its not a forgery) and allowed a military officer to go to prison and dont even get started on whether he gave up whatever citizenship he had when he was adopted by Soetoro and moved to Indonesia. Thats the name he used all through college etc. What about the ss number he got in CT. Then he comes back to USA and calls himself Obama. Lets see all those documents. I think hes an illegal alien until he shows proof of citizenship being reclaimed once he returned from Indonesia.

        Pull your head out of your ass and realize what this guy has done. Hes pulled off the biggest fraud in our countries history. The man has no character.

        I wont even begin to argue why that document might even be a forgery. The bottom line is he is not eligible to be President but people dont care because heaven forbid the first black President is a fraud or a cheat. The streets riot and no one wants to see that because we are all a bunch of racists for wanting our Constitution to be followed.

        Right you are, McFeely!

        From the Naturalization Act of 1790: “The children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond the sea, or outside the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural-born citizens of the United States.”

        1790! Founding Fathers! Original intent, bitches!

      • Robert Acquafresca

        Hey dummy. Read the whole act of 1790.

        “And the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens: Provided, that the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States”

        You conveniently left out an important sentence. The right of natural born citizenship does not pass when your dad has never been resident in the US.

        Obamas daddy is admittedly Kenyan. Hes no resident of the USA when Obama was born. Thus Obama cannot be a natural born citizen according to this act. Bitches!!

      • Jennyjenjen

        Christ Robert you are a moron. The notion of natural born citizen has been debated among constitutionalists far more intelligent than you for the length of time our country has been a country. I don’t think your little wikipedia browsing qualifies you to declare Obama should be removed in hand cuffs. McCain was born in the Panama Canal. It’s been debated that children, born of two U.S. parents outside of the U.S. are not Natural Born Citizens. He ran for president. He also has never shown his birth certificate. You don’t know what you are talking about. You need to go away now.

      Donald Trump’s mother was born is Scotland, and he was born in Jamaica in the land of the Queens.

      Except that Obama was born in Hawaii, so this part doesn’t apply.

      “All PERSONS BORN or naturalized IN the UNITED STATES, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, ARE CITIZENS of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

      Robert, Robert, Robert,

      You might be considered correct if we were living before the passage of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution in 1868. (I know folks like you have a hard time catching up……but over 150 years….come on)

      The Supreme Court ruling of United States v. Wong Kim Ark in 1898 proves you dead wrong on the issue.

      You statement about the name the Mr. Obama used in college is complete bullshit also, his room mate at Columbia only knew him only by the name that is on his birth certificate.

    • TomFrank

      @Robert Acquafresca:
      That whole “citizenship is inherited exclusively through the father” business from the Naturalization Act of 1790 was superseded by the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952. But it’s cute how, in this day and age of women’s equality and such, you still
      think that the child of an American mother and a foreign-national father isn’t an American citizen.

      • Robert Acquafresca

        hey moron, I am not saying he is not a citizen, I am saying he is not a natural born citizen. Do you even know the difference. One can be a citizen but not a natural born citizen and not eligble to be President for varying reasons.

        Amazing the stupidity around here. No wonder our country is going to shit.

      • Juano

        I would suggest people stop replying to the nonsense spouted by Robert Acquafresca. It doesn’t matter to people like him, he has convinced himself he is right, even though no court in the land would agree with him. He hates Obama, has probably convinced himself that Obama is the first sign of the apocalypse, and likely has a nice little underground den for himself in Montana somewhere.

        People like him see conspiracy everywhere but ignore the fact that the Republicans have raped and pillaged this country for the last decade, made us the largest debtor nation in the world starting with Reagan’s policies in the ’80s, and will do anything, and I mean anything, to get back in power to keep the party going.

  37. Obama Birth Certificate
    Commented on this photo:

    thank christ obama got rid of that distraction. now he can focus on massive unemployment, exploding debt, supporting rebels who behead people in the name of islam, going to war without congressional support, golf, cronyism, union payoffs, promoting class warfare, investing in technology that doesn’t work, and furthering executive and/or federal overreach that he decried Bush for! FINALLY.

    o and f trump. obama was dead on calling him a sideshow barker.

  38. j

    Now show me the paper that says he is not a Socialist hell bent on destroying the USA.
    The birth certificate has always been a moot point in light of his politics. The whites should have asked if Lenin had a birth certificate before he confiscated all wealth and had opposition marched out into the woods and shot like dogs.

    • Well, most socialists would have jumped at the chance to really reform wall street in a way that would have meaningfully curtailed the worst abuses of our economic system. Probably would have demanded the multi-million dollar bonuses that were paid out to the (overwhelmingly conservative) hedge fund managers and the management of the banks that destroyed our economy go instead to some of those who lost everything in the crash. Your garden variety socialist would have gotten rid of the Bush tax cuts (which were originally sold to the American people as a way to “spend our surplus!”) pretty much right away. About a hundred more things I could list, too.

      So really almost any paper you would read, J. You know, one of my favorite Biblical verses is “By their fruit shall ye know them”. Might be useful for you, the next time you’re Rushing to Excellence or listening to Billo. You know, to compare and contrast what they’re telling you to believe with the evidence of your own senses.

    • Considering the dude has been uncomfortably pro business (to democrats at least), I don’t think your whole socialist thing holds water.

      In fact…no, you know what? It’s been a long damn day at work so I’m just going to say it straight rather than take my normal path and try to reason with people like you:

      You’re a fucking moron, low information clown that needs to be stripped of his/her voting rights.

      Seriously, stop breathing from the mouth.

    Where is the Hawaii state seal on this document? Obama and Co. made such a big deal about it on the certificate of live birth they whipped out a couple years ago.

    Barack Obama is still the worst president this country has ever seen. He had succeeded in dividing the country on racial lines. He has not lived up to any of his campaign promises. He has dug this country into a fiscal hole that we will never climb out of and he has made this country weak and pathetic in the eyes of the world.

    • Amy

      Yes, race riots abound on the streets of the US today. And we totally didn’t have a massive deficit in the Bush era. Yeah, no one thought poorly of the US before Obama showed up.

      I’m so glad Gem is brave enough to speak the truth. I don’t know how we’d all stay sane without such brilliant insight.

    • You sound like Dr. Laura…seriously, “dividing the country on racial lines”? Did it ever occur this is because the States is still a VERY RACIST country regardless of other progress it’s made?
      All this shit is happening bc it’s bringing to light the true nature of its people. The country was already divided, it took a Black President in 2009 to see everyone come out of the woodwork and use any pathetic attempt including denial of a man’s birth certificate to realize this. Is your suggestion to keep having a White President to keep smothering and quieting this racism? That’s the only way this will stop happening unless we start basing people on their merits and not pathetic fake issues…maybe Obama could live to his campaign promises if
      a.) the republican congress would actually let him pass his propsed bills rather than voting him and delaying every bill
      b.) people would stop creating fake drama so he can focus on the important issues.
      Get a clue.

      • William

        The USA IS more racially divided today than it has been since 1865. Even PBS stands by that statement.

        Barack Obama is a failure. When you are living in abject poverty, get back to us and let us know how that hope worked out for you.

      • Amy

        William, are you one of those people who think slavery and Jim Crowe laws were actually benevolent institutions (not to mention the Dred Scott decision)? Oh goodie! Do tell us how nice it was to be African-American and leaving in the South in 1865. I love these stories. They make me feel all warm and fuzzy. *popcorn*

      • Well if PBS says it’s true… just bc a country is more racist doesn’t mean this is bc of a black president, he didn’t ‘create racists’ or make someone decide to be anything they already weren’t… racism doesn’t just magically appear, it stems from a pervasive, deeply rooted fear that existed long before anybody knew who Obama was… Based on your complete lack of intelligence on that front, everything you’re saying is mere republican gobbledygook..and let me guess, you’re also one of those people that think you can ‘cure’ homosexuality when someone ‘decides’ to be gay too..

      • Robin Quivers

        Right Bianca. If there was no racism, EVERYBODY would’ve voted for Obama and the Republican party would’ve folded. If the Republicans weren’t racist they would pass all of Obama’s bills, just like they did with every other white democratic president. Of course. Dumbass.

        Most of these accusations of racism are just the left projecting their own racial obsessions. Clinton had it much tougher back in the early 90s but he didn’t have the race card to fall back on.

    • eatme

      gem and william should get married and have little racist, bigot babies.

    • qwerty

      If you believed any of the campaign promises Barack Obama made in 2008 then you are an idiot! I am a young black college student and I explicitly did not vote for Obama because I knew that he could not fulfill his campaign promises. Not because I thought he out and out lied but because this is a democratic government. We have a checks and balances system in which a bill or a law can be defeated at any point if sufficient opposition is present. The fulfillment of his campaign promises depends on the approval of the House and the Senate. This is not a just comment on Obama’s success/failure but rather on the workings of our government. All the critical issues before us today are not being seriously considered by our elected officials. We don’t need division on things like healthcare. I think we all agree that reform is needed and our elected officials need to work together to come up with a reform that suits everyone. If Obamacare is not good, fine. They all need to meet and come up with Americare or whatever. Those private health insurance companies are robbing us blind. And those republicans. they need to remember that there is an entire nation of Republicans, independents AND Democrats. This is not a club house argument between two factions. How can a superpower have such a defunct healthcare system? Medical care in India and in other industrialized countries such as France and Canada is on par with ours but are AFFORDABLE. I don’t care if the leader of this nation is a robot. So long he and the Congress can solve our political issues. All those fools need to be thrown out and replaced with capable rational individuals. And Congress should take a pay cut in these economically hard times. Sometimes it feels like only the interests of a few are addressed in this country. Democracy indeed.

  43. j-sin

    Trump’s hair should prove it’s citizenship.

  44. The people who believed in this birther idiocy are the same people who have voted for the conservatives for the last thirty years because conservatives were going to stop abortions and put the gays and minorities in their place and do soemething about the taxes they pay on their thirty of forty grand salaries. You know, stand up to those “liberal elites”.

    Thirty years years later we’ve still got abortions. We have a black president. Gay marriage will soon be a fact of life across these fifty states.

    On the other hand, after thirty years of “taking care of taxes” and trickle down economics the disparity between the richest ten percent of the population and the fast vanishing middle class is greater than it has been in the postwar era and that gap is still growing. Median wagesfor households in the US have declined since the beginning of the Reagan Revolution while corporate earnings and the amount of the economy controlled by the richest 1 percent have skyrocketed.

    Vote for them again next time and you’ll get to see your granny, or maybe mom and dad and ultimately yourself go without healthcare in your declining years but hey, the Ryan budget will cut 7% more off the top marginal tax rate. To “balance the deficit”, you know. More to trickle down. Shit, the way it’s been building up at the top for the last thirty years when that dam finally breaks it’s going to be a flood.

    Yeah, worry about Obama’s birth certificate. Or how about Kerry not getting wounded bad enough?

    And vote some more for that same bunch of conservatives. You know, the rich men who laugh at you while they invest your money in Brazil.

    • Gigi

      how’s that hopey changey thing doing for you so far?

      • j-sin

        Pretty good, Sarah.

      • Somewhere up above I think I made pretty clear my dissatisfaction with Obama. My response to that is not, however, to embrace those on the reactionary right who have turned their backs on traditional American and Christian values to embrace a self-serving objectivism that owes more to the ideals of feudalism than any American impulse.

        Yeah, I know it’s considered passe now, but I’m still a patriot.

  45. Obama Birth Certificate
    John FREEman
    Commented on this photo:

    Right, so this is his strawman account (note the all CAPITAL letters). Everyone knows this documenet is just his artificial person created at birth buy the global Jewish elite, the Bilderberg Group and the Illuminati as collateral for bailing the U.S. out of bankruptcy in 1933.

    In other words: it’s meaningless.

    Show me that the president has gone through the full REDEMPTIVE PROCESS, taken back his strawman, regained his natural person and cashed in his birth certificate for the $10,000,000.


  46. Alan

    Kenyans seems to know where Barack Obama was born:

    Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate

    Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.

    Link is here:


    • TomFrank

      Because a single newspaper article can’t possibly be wrong. After all, they even knew how to spell his name!

    • Karen

      Yep, let’s believe random internet link over the factual proof of a birth certificate. Genius.

    • derp

      Oh yeah, I’d put a lot of stock into a newspaper article whose author can’t even spell its subject’s name.

      • William

        You are aware that names are spelled differently in different cultures and countries? By your logic, Osama bin Laden doesn’t exist because his names is also spelled Usama bin Laden.

        BTW, The Standard is the NY Times of Kenya, not a random weekly newspaper.

        You Obama supporters are brain dead.

    • rough instinct

      Has Trump seen this?

      • TomFrank

        1. You’re saying the New York Times is never wrong? Turn in your conservative credentials!

        2. We spell Arabic names differently because the original, IN ARABIC LETTERING, can be transliterated in many different ways. The Standard, however, is an English-language newspaper that simply misspelled Obama’s first name. Oh, and, got that “Kenyan-born” thing wrong, too.

      • William

        TomFrank – Are you trying to claim that The Standard has no African’s working in it’s offices? Even English language newspapers in countries outside of the USA have their own regional spelling and grammar differences.

        Why would a large regional newspaper brag about a locally born man becoming a US senator if it was widely known that he wasn’t locally born? Oh yeah, they must subscribe to the same liberal journalistic standards as most news organizations in the USA follow.

        Your ignorance is laughable.

    • TomFrank

      You’re right, my ignorance is laughable. The weight of the whole controversy should be placed wholly on one poorly sourced Kenyan newspaper article and not the entirety of the evidence indicating that President Obama was born in Hawai’i to an American mother. How could I not see this before you showed me the light?

  47. Sorry, forgot where I was.

    That is NOT a Birth Certificate. That is a Certificate of Live Birth. Our local news reporter went to the Courthouse and got one that was for his dog.
    They are not the same. In my State what Obama produces is not a legal document.

    • derp

      Do you understand how capitalization works?

    • What

      That is a birth certificate copy and they take weeks to get. They are copies of the originals from where you are born made of the records and authenticated form where you are born. It is authentic. It’s just not his actual birth certificate, since like me his actual one was probably lost. My parents lost mine and never gave it to me. I had to get a copy of mine. It happens to a lot of people. Especially to someone who moves around a lot.

    • eatme

      In Obama’s state what he produced IS the legal document. That’s what matters.

  49. Gigi

    I am not a birther nor am I an Obama supporter. However, I have to think that either Trump has finally lost his mind or he’s an Obama plant. He needs to shut the heck up and let the Republican party try to find someone to beat Obama in 2012.

    • By this logic, of course, if polls are to be believed, fully one half of the Republican party are also Obama plants, since they say they believe this.
      I guess the alternative would be that they are stupid, ill-informed, unread or blinded by bigotry and fear of the other, lead on a leash by the cynical elite who profit from their stupidity from one false issue to another.

      I would prefer it be the former, but alas, I fear it’s not.
