Impolite? Impolitic? Curious, Nonetheless

Sykes won't talk about it, ever. Limbaugh doesn't.

And it could all be settled very, very, VERY easily. But it doesn't get settled. Instead, there are court filings, delays, obfuscations, lawyerings...

Obama’s late paternal grandmother and several of his half-brothers have said he was born in Kenya and that his mother, 18 at the time, visited Kenya in 1961 in the late stages of pregnancy, was not allowed by the airline to fly back to Hawaii and gave birth to the baby in Kenya. A child born abroad to one U.S. citizen parent and one alien parent (Barack Obama, Sr. was a citizen of Kenya) acquires U.S. citizenship at birth under Section 301(g) of U.S. immigration law provided the citizen parent was physically present in the U.S. for the time period at the child’s birth. For birth between 1952 and 1986 a period of 10 years (five after the age of 14) is required for physical presence in the U.S. to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child. Because his mother was not 19 years old, she wouldn’t have satisfied the requirement if the birth took place in Kenya-and Obama wouldn’t have been born a U.S. citizen

Reportedly there are over 350,000 people who have committed their names to a petition demanding a resolution. Wouldn't surprise me if Obama has an equal number of lawyers finding ways to quash the information.

While you're looking please hunt up GWB service records, too.

One is just as settled as the other.

Hey, thanks for the usual, "But Bush..." argument. Give that $h!t up sometime? Your guy is a facist, a socialist and possibly foreign born. That far outweighs anything GWB may-or-may-not have done.

Oh, and about Clinton's service record.

GWB's service record wouldn't affect his eligibility for Office of the Presidency.

But, I echo what Deekaman said.

Ditto Andy K. Bush isn't president anymore. The fact is he was BORN HERE.

Dad, you might want to teach your readers about comprehension.

For you slow learners, I mention the Bush thing in passing because it is settled news. There is no more "there" there. In the same way the "birther's" particular fantasies have been hashed and rehashed.

Only the galloping stupid people are still looking for "proof."

As far as Obama goes, he could've ended this a long time ago. He chose not to. All he had to do was release his long form Birth Certificate, and, POOF! It all goes away. INstead, we get the 'Certificate of Live Birth', which does NOT mean he was born in Hawaii. Also, he's never explained travelling to Pakistan on a Indonesian Passport, nor has he released all his college records, which could dispell the rumors of Indonesian financial aid. Now, to the conspiracy theorists out there, this is a 10 course meal. Obama brought this upon himself, not that I think anything will come of it since most of the MSM have their lips wrapped around his ***. I'm just sayin'...

Only the guilty would not be forthcoming with the proper evidence.
