64. Ooooooo-kay...
"Your racism clearly shows: "just not an African one"."

No...that's not racism. I was talking about people actually FROM Africa. I also don't want someone from Europe, Asia, or Australia in the office of US President. Nice try on the race card again. This time, I'm playing the BS card.

"There's also nothing wrong, illegal, or unconstitutional with an African-born man serving as president, or a man with one or both parents who immigrated from Africa, as long as he was born with US citizenship."

You are absolutely correct. Only problem with that theory is that at the time of Obama's birth if only one parent
was a U.S. citizen at the time of the birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least 10 years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16, and Obama's mother, "Stanley" was only 18 at the time. It also doesn't help matters that Obama's grandmother said she was present at Obama's birth in Mombasa.

"As far as the McCain flap goes, people didn't keep changing the goalposts, and demanding different documents, in hopes that one of them would have something damaging."

No one is asking for anything that isn't a public record. What would you do if a Republican administration denied the public access to public information and documents? I'm imagining you wouldn't be running to THEIR defense. In any case, I'm neither a Democrat NOR a Republican, I'm on the side of the USA, and I'd be all over this no matter which side was trying to hoodwink the public.

"There's also no such country as "Africa", it's a continent."

Again, your knowledge of the completely irrelevant amazes me. At least you have something to teach your kids. Might have been a better assertion in this particular thread had I actually stated there were such a country. Just for your info, Kenya is a country in Africa, making Obama both Kenyan and African if he was indeed born there. It would also be appropriate to call me a "North American" if you so chose. If it makes you feel better, however, I'll refer to him as "Kenyan" and not "African."
