    •  I can honestly say I cringed!!!

      disclaimer, because it now seems we need one. This is only how I feel. This is not a fact by fact post. I really welcome all that want to post an opinion, it’s great to have a good discussion and see all sides.

      I don’t know if any saw the video that has hulk hogan theme song, american eagle, and his birth certificate popping up? If you haven’t please go see it on utube and if so inclined post your thoughts.
      However, to me it was tacky. To me it reminded me of a young child going nah nah nah in a spoiled way.
      No matter what official office a person holds, or party, or colour, os sex I would have thought the same thing.
      Reason: no matter what some of the people he governs needed more and the neglect to finalize it way way back in the beginning ONLY made it worse. So, to do it now he as the president should have showen some quite dignity and left it with how it was just proven but nooo he gloated and couldn’t just leave it alone.
      Now I know this is what others have done before, the gloating, the ads, the media.... Didn’t make it right then and doesn’t make it right now.
      Plus if he was so worried about moving on so this issue wouldn’t distract from other issues WHY keep it going ? Only fueling the issue! At least in my mind.
      If you’ve seen the video what do you think?

        • Go to u tube it’s Barack Obama comes out to hulk hogans theme music! Take a look I’m interested in what you think? Listening to Frost Stilwell on radio and omg the way our president be littled Trump with him there at the banquet well ... It was shameful and not very Dignified. He didn’t have to go on and on and on.
          Where has self dignity gone?

        • I saw it. Didn’t bother me one bit. Trump, earlier this week went on and on ad nauseam with regards to his birth certificate as well as his education, to me, that was shameful and made Trump look like a raving idiot. I have a feeling if his name was John Smith and not Barack Hussein Obama, there would have been no argument of where he was born. Maybe there was a sticky point about his birth certificate because his mother was not with his father when he was born, who knows? As an astrologer, I was able to find his birth record even before he was elected President, so I had no question about him being a citizen. The man is criticized whenever he does something, doesn’t do something, when he does something too fast, too slow or not enough. Can’t please everyone, and that’s the bottom line. I think this wouldn’t be such a big issue if the economy was stable. Let’s think back to Clinton, and that Monica mess. The country looked the other way regarding perjury as well as impeachment because the economy was doing a whole lot better than it is now.

        • I haven’t seen it yet but it seems that President Obama has been blasted for NOT showing reaction. At the end of the day he is only human and will react like most of us would.

          Now I promise I will look for the video tomorrow and will comment after. Fow now I am listening to the Bin Laden news.

        • heart I just think the video was tackless and if he had really ment what he said about putting it to rest so it would stop being a distraction he would have ended it there. That’s the point not the validity of the birth certificate. Being tacky is the topic. At least for my post.
          @ samurah boo hoo?????? Well if that’s your participation so be it.
          @ Mary I’m not a huge fan of trump either for he is egotistical in alot of ways but he’s smart. I still go back to if the president wanted to move on and let this topic drop then he has done a really bad job of it. Do as I say not as I do type thing.
          But.... I do get the feeling of wanting to get even and gloat we all do it as humans it’s our nature BUT and a big big BUT if your a leader of a nation you should be above this. At least in public. I could have respected him more if he dropped it and took the higher road.
          Well I guess not in this case. Sigh
          Vikki, can’t wait to hear your thoughts.
          Kyah, thanks for sharing. And valid point on that topic. I still think he should have taken the higher road. And I understand that it’s been going on for a long time so why not let it drop and move on.

        • I didn’t see the video on the computer (this old thang won’t let me) but I saw a brief clip on the TV of Obama making light of the subject, and I’m glad he handled it that way for the sole purpose of not making a bigger deal of it.

        • I haven’t seen the video.  I did see Seth Meyers telling all his jokes on everyone.  Donald just sat there looking like he was mad at the world.  Hey, if your gonna dish it you better be able to take it!  Besides, this dinner has been a Presidential tradition I think since 1920??

        • Good thoughts ladies. Maybe now with B.L. Dead and other things we will move forward.
          I love a great laugh but to me time and place and maybe it was more the video or something I just really didn’t like it.
