Agreed Billie, the silly birther issue wasn't dependent on Obama's race.  Is this the best evidence you got that Trump is racist, Don?

It's not a silly issue. People not born in America aren't eligible to be President.

There was a lot of legitimate concern that Obama wasn't eligible, so everybody who didn't want a communist President asked for proof, hoping to disqualify Obama and avoid getting a communist President who's signature accomplishment is the ACA. Cry

It's said there is proof that Barry (Shoom Gang Big O) Obama was born in Hawaii.

Who cares now... What is important now is getting Elizabeth Warren to make her DNA public....

Pelosi too. I've always thought she was an alien.

What about people who were born on a military base overseas?  Should they not be eligible to become president?  If you have one parent who is an American citizen, then you're an American citizen, right?  Anyway, I don't care where Obama was born.

As for Elizabeth Warren, yeah, ridiculous that she claimed to be part American Indian, but won't back it up.  What's even more ridiculous is her in this video:

As if the rich didn't pay for roads and schools.  She and Nancy Pelosi are idiots.

Military bases and U.S. Embassies are U.S territory. That counts. I don't think being born in Guantanamo qualifies you if both your parents are Saudis. Maybe just one? IDK. Being born in America does...

Read up on all the laws and straighten me up if needed, thanks.

The pertinent phrase is "native born" I think...

Edit: Was Barry born on a military base in Kenya?

Neither of you have much chance to improve your standing on my racism scale. But you always have a good chance of stepping over the line,  getting raised up the scale, and getting reported for racist comments. I won't tolerate that! Neither will the forum owner.

Best to keep it light and keep hinting at your disagreeable natures!

Well, I don't care where Obama was born since his mother was American.  My problem with him was that he was our least qualified president ever and only got the job because of media inspired affirmative action.  In other words, white guilt got him elected (and re-elected), a terrible way to choose a president.  Race should NEVER be a factor when choosing a president.  Being a woman, I look forward to the day we have our first woman president, but I'm so glad it wasn't Hillary.  She's corrupt and incompetent, only has her political career because of her husband's coattails.

What made Obama "black"? His Mother was "white"... In a society that followed matrilineal lines of succession, would Barry have been "white"?

Me too. I'm just happy he's not president any longer.

It's unfortunate Ruby that our first female president is likely to be elected by the same media affirmative action that helped Obama get elected, and that "male guilt" will be a factor, and that she will be as unqualified as Obama.

BTW, we've had a lot of unqualified presidents if you look at it from a libertarian perspective, and as long as the TwoParties control the electoral process, we're likely to have more... Angry

I suppose we can call Obama, "brown."  Or just, "bi-racial."

Male guilt certainly didn't get Hillary elected.  Does it even really exist?  I mean, she lost to Trump.  I was happy about it, but damn, I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone.

I'm pretty sure Obama self-identified as black, at least for the election...

Does "white guilt" really exist? I don't think so. maybe among the very young.

Anyway, I've heard a lot more people say "It's time we had a female president" than I ever heard say "It's time we had a black president."
