    • heart so, now two years after becoming president he decides NOW is the time to prove he was born here. I never doubted he was born here but honestly it doesn’t prove he’s a citizen! Remember he had to give up being a citizen to go to school when did he get his citizenship back?
      I think that his people are concerned about Donald trump that’s why now!
      Timing is everything. What gets me is that the people of the united states of America asked for proof years ago .... Why wasn’t it shown then? We have the right to ask proof of all things regarding
      The person that leads our country. It’s a law to be a citizen to goveren so why the big shadow on this topic ? Why not bring it to the light? The only person that made this bigger was Obama himself when he let it go on and on and on.... What agenda or reason would a person have not to answer this simple thing and then move on?
      Makes no sence and I trust him less because he is deflecting the blame.

        • I assumed he had shown it or at least it had been investigated before he actually ran. I agree that the hoopla is ridiculous and really does take the focus away from what really needs attention.
          The fact of the matter is Prez O is in office now and needs to get things moving. Until there is another shift in leadership he Prez O shouldn’t have to deal with this one issue. It should have been verified BEFORE he took office.

          As for Trump bringing it up NOW I have to wonder why? It’s been in the open that there is question but why question it now? Why not raise the noise 2 years ago. Why not be so loud then to get things moving so 2 years haven’t gone by with all this going on?

          Now IRS moves pretty quickly when they are owed money. Why wouldn’t we move quicker if we were really that concerned about his birth cert?

          Now the whole giving up citizenship to go go to school is a completely different subject but again should have been checked out before he was put into office.

        • Now you can all bite me but this is me looking in from the outside – it seems that almost every president seems to spend more time dealing with stuff off stage than on – Like Bill and that whole impeachment – why doesn't someone say enough and let them work and concentrate on just righting the ship and steering towards a steady financial course ....
          Just my view

        • I agree Vicki! The argument is always that our President has to be better than the rest of us. But my thought has always been he has more cold and calculating than us. After all he is the one who ultimately decides to send people to war. People that he knows may be killed along with innocent bystanders. So really a Prez that is so far above being human couldn’t make those hard decisions that I personally could not do.

        • your right Vikki - but all these squabbles must be time consuming - so he should have said something before and then head down and got on with the job this way would have closed the circus down ....... plus has anyone every thought what it does to your international reputation when all your concerned about is a birth certificate and not sorting your pocket book out because when the US catches a cold fiscally we all catch full on flu .....That is just my opinion looking in from outside

        • also did not know that about Chet Arthur, need to mention that to my step-dad as he is a huge presidential buff...i find this whole thing about Obama and his birth certificate intriguing, but again, very controversial and Trump must now feel he has an upper hand, maybe?

        • Heres my two cents lol.
          This became a huge issue because Obama refused to show proof when questioned about it by the people he goverens. As a leader of the free world and supposedly for the people he should never have hesitated on this small provable (?) item.
          But, when he refused , which by law he must be a citizen to hold this office, he brought the doubt, he brought the attention, integrity to put the country first shot! ( the focus could be on issues that carry huge impact) he put himself above the law, narcissistic comes to mind thinking he was above the people and he didn’t have to answer the request. No one is above the law or the proof of qualifications to hold this office. He basically did no honor to the highest office in the US.
          Internationally reputation on this??? Well , it did make him bad and the people that kept questioning it over and over small minded , maybe... Maybe not but the international world has to look at the bigger picture.. If our president won’t comply with this, a fundamental law to hold this office then what else will he choose next to put himself above?
          As for racism ... That is racism accusing the questioners that ask this and expect proof , that they only question this because he’s black. And to me it’s insulting. The office of the United States of America sees no colour when it comes to the requirements the person MUST have to hold this office. McCain had to prove it and he had not one quality

           And he served this country in it’s armed forces and was a decorated veteren. He never held himself higher than the status of president. Obama by stone walling did.
          I think it’s ashame and as a citizen that votes and follows what goes on I’m ashamed of his petty behavior and those that yell racism

        • Sadly I think everything about this President is race related whether anyone would admit it or not.

          I live in the south where race issues are still fought. And I can honestly say that those who oppose democrats show more opposition towards Obama than any other dem

        • I think it’s all to easy to play the race card when you don’t agree or like someones opinion. That’s the first thing they grab.
          What I find is that alot of people , not all but the majority that throw that card have not educated themselves with the issues and Facts. And I believe it’s truely the fact that this president is short sited and has no seasoning to his career to be president and THAT is why republicans are vastly against him more than any other democrat president .
          Your right about race being an issue with his election and the country blindly stumbled over themselves to vote him in because it was change they just forgot he had no experience....at all.
          It would be either a first black president or first woman vice president and of course people would throw the race or gender card.
          It’s insulting and embarrassing.
          Never been in charge of anything ... In his life and only a junior senator but hey let’s let him be president and govern the biggest free world country in the world and when people complain and loudly protest let’s call them racist. What is wrong with that picture????

        • Annie made a good point about Obama won by a majority. Do you really think people were only swayed by his speeches? He is good but he is NOT better than Clinton is at giving speeches. Why do you think he won?

        • worried  I think he tapped into every person desire to live a better life and be appreciated as the working middle class that usually feels forgotten. The people that are the back bone of America. Appreciation and his speeches gave them huge amounts of acknowledged pride, in which they all deserve and then some.
          And your right Annie it’s all about HOPE. And that can move moutains or sway people that desperately want a better life. His speeches were powerful and he can speak to a crowd but I truely believe that Clinton was and is a better speaker and his speeches had a more believable sincerity to them I felt.

        • Why would we need HOPE  and be easily swayed by a speech full of hope if all was well? What was the problems that pushed us into needing that HOPE more desperately than before?
