So the birth certificate was released and that mean the end of this fiasco?

Not in the least:

That, they say, would disqualify Obama because of the Founders' requirement in the Constitution that a president be a "natural born Citizen," commonly understood during the era of the beginnings of the United States to mean a citizen offspring of two citizen parents.

But he father was a Kenyan....oh my god....that's un-natural!

No..... that's what we call being racist

Inglis v. Trustees of Sailor's Snug Harbor, 28 U.S. 99 (1830)

Joseph Story : "Nothing is better settled at the common law than the doctrine that the children even of aliens born in a country while the parents are resident there under the protection of the government and owing a temporary allegiance thereto are subjects by birth"

Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 [1857]

The answer is obvious. The Constitution has left to the States the determination what person, born within their respective limits, shall acquire by birth citizenship of the United States;

And even if he moved away as a child

Perkins v. Elg, 307 U.S. 325 (1939)

The U.S. Supreme Court concluded that Marie Elizabeth Elg, who was born in the United States of Swedish parents naturalized in the United States, had not lost her birthright U.S. citizenship because of her removal during minority to Sweden and was entitled to all the rights and privileges of that U.S. citizenship.

It is time the MSM lost its patience with these frauds it has nothing to do with law and everything to do with racism, nothing more nothing less.

It is time people in positions of responsibility spoke out....not that they will

At least Tweety tried to call them out

I blame the

Tea party
The Republican Party

For giving this crap credence, it wasn't "fun news" it was more "hate news".

Lets see if the just go silent and let the story die, or will they follow on with all the related racist crap to come?

Next up his education

Oh for fucks sake

He was voted president of the United States by the people.

Everything else is revisionist garbage.

If you don't like it, there is an opportunity next year do do so democratically.

The best thing to do if you want a better America is to stop encouraging

1] Conspiracy loons
2] Racists
3] Religious zealots.
4] Misogynists.

Or any combination thereof they usually come as a set.

Then we might have a chance of doing the serious work of actually creating jobs.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
