    It’s all really odd. I could walk 50 ft to my safe and snap you a photo of my birth certificate within a minute. You want baby pictures, birth announcement in newspaper, etc. It’s all available. I can walk 25 ft the other way and snap a photo of my GT diploma hanging on my wall. 100+ friends could easily vouch for my attendance and names the years attended. There’s pictures, tax records, driver’s license records, etc all easily available.

    He kept it a mystery or promoted the controversy because he wanted to paint the birthers as lunatics and played it like 4 aces. As pointed out above, he was born to an American mother so he’s American per 301(c) of INA unless his mother never lived in the US.

    If they were indeed lunatics, why did it take 5 years for anybody, the candidate or any election official to establish the basis under which the candidate was declared eligible to hold the office. It’s not like this has not happened before to others.

    Apparently you are still confused.

    I’m not talking about Obama, Trump or anyone else. I’m talking about the fact that all paperwork should be obtained AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION for placing your name on the ballot. HAD THAT BEEN DONE there would had never been a birther issue for anyone to exploit.

    Now as far as Obama, he benefitted from the birther stuff and he did so by sitting on his birth certificate because he knew people like you would see it as racist and blast Trump for even suggesting he wasn’t a citizen. As I recall Obama finally produced a copy of a birth certificate issued in Hawaii, several months after the BS was all over every LIBERAL network in the WESTERN World. I’m sure you knew that but then since you only pointed out The FOX angle I’m sure you preferred CNN and the rest of the liberal water carrying media to frame it as you saw it.

    But again, had the registration process actually gathered the REQUIRED info it could have been a non starter to Bring it up.

    I’m sure you libs think everything is racist so actually obtaining the constitutionally required info FROM ALL CANDIDATES would have really pissed y’all judgmental people off. After all there is a racial allegation behind every requirement of process that liberals encounter. Matter of fact liberals pull the race card more than African Americans, who I presume would be a little more experienced in being discriminated against than any of you Bernie Sanders loving Socialist. Hummmm does that help you understand ?

    If I have to produce my Birth Certificate and 2 other forms of ID to get a Driver's License, I should have to show all that to run for President.

    Well, a driver’s license or passport, etc. Some official government ID that has established citizenship. I don’t think you should be forking over a birth certificate to vote. Most people entering the voting booth are quite a bit different than the day they were born.

    I agree about the birth certificate, but some kind of current photo ID should be REQUIRED in EVERY STATE. We have to produce our drivers license in Georgia in order to vote. That has not caused any problems, no would it anywhere else.

    Were all of the other candidates asked to submit a birth certificate no, only the black one.

    He was the only one at the time who was President. He was the only one raised predominantly in another country. He was the only one who had at least 1 parent who wasn’t a US citizen and a father married to 2 different women in 2 different countries at the same time. The whole thing was a waste of time and distraction. They should have simply followed Hillary Clinton’s lead that he wasn’t raised here and not instilled with Americanism instead of not being born here (which is false).

    is that a legitimate use of it, or was the ID checker like “oooookay buddy, you just go ahead and do whatever you want”. :D

    The guy checking IDs was probably intimidated by @awbuzz power move.

    "You're going to accept this as my ID, or as you can see, I have a gun and I will use it..."
