This is the guy the RNC wanted as the featured speaker on the opening night of the convention. America's most prominent birther.

And nobody in the "liberal media" seems to find this fact the least bit unusual or troublesome.

even if obama had been born in kenya, his mother was american, which would give him american citizenship. literally the ONLY thing he couldn't have done that he could have done as american-born is serve as president of the united states.

so, according to trump and the other birthers, the obamas somehow either impersonated hospital personnel or bribed them to place the announcements (only hospital personnel were allowed to place them, you see). SO, they were willing to commit a crime, JUST IN CASE THEIR BI-RACIAL INFANT SON ONE DAY RAN FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

We're still having this debate? Seriously?

Do these imbeciles think that when Obama put in his bid to run for President, every federal law enforcement agency in the USA(under President G.W. Bush, no less) didn't know who he was and where he was born?

Please, stop being so DAMNED RETARDED.

There is a good amount of argument about what natural born means....bring born on American soil is the minority view. Most scholars agree it simply means American citizen at the time if birth with no additional action required.

Isn't it cruel to let him suffer like this? If my dog was as crazy as Donald Trump, I'd have to put her down.

Did Obama fark Trump's wife while the Secret Service pinned him down or something? I mean Christ on a Ritz cracker give it up already. The President is American, end of story.

Here is why he does this:

1. Foreign buyers make up the biggest segment of customers for his very high-end condos.
2. The Chinese wealthy in particular are Trump property fans, for some reason.
3. The Chinese are utterly fascinated that a private citizen can and will be so insulting to a President.
4. This is easy, constant advertising to him.
5. Profit - the margins we are talking about are in the many millions of dollars. A condo in a new Trump building in NYC can go for many millions of dollars, and he has a LOT of them here and in other cities. And he gets a percentage on re-sales, too, in addition to the very lucrative management of the buildings.

Also, many of his buildings are actually owned by foreign investors who love this. And they pay for the Trump name to be stuck out front and for him to manage them.

I'm sure spending the 70 days between now and election day on increasingly fantastical birtherism conspiracies is a winning strategy and the RNC should commit to it wholeheartedly.

I love the exchange between Trump and Wolf Blitzer in the article:

Wolf: "Donald, you're beginning to sound a little ridiculous, I have to tell you,"

Donald: "You are, Wolf, Let me tell you something, I think you sound ridiculous."

Wolf: "No, you are"

Donald: "No, you are"

Wolf: "No, you are"

Donald: "No, you are"

Wolf: "I know you are but what am I?"

Donald: "I....uhhh....DOH!!"



I can totally see Wolf Blitzer pulling that on Trump and utterly confounding him.

Not necessarily. There are so many misconceptions surrounding this, but the laws are clear.

His mother would have to had filed a Consular Report of Birth Abroad before he turned 18 in order for him to claim citizenship if he was born abroad.

Because he is a good representation of the GOP. He was seriously considered for a presidential run. He was asked to speak at the RNC. He isn't some wacky embarrassing uncle. He is a valued part of GOP.

All moderates and "independents" take note, the GOP values Donald Trump's opinion and think he is worthy of a great deal of respect and attention.

Trump's expression here, the head tilted forward, shoulders hunched, lips pursed tightly, it says: "My god by you've got a lot of money. I so want to get my hands on your money, Romney, but I'm not sure what to make of you just yet, no, you're still...I can't quite put my finger on it. But GOD how I want your money."

My birth required no announcement in the paper...I nearly killed my mom. There are medical records to prove it.

One would think that someone by now would have coughed up the medical records for Barry's mom at some point...however sketchy...and they would prove that Barry was indeed born in Hawaii unless of course his mom has the ability to teleport after giving birth from Kenya or wherever to Hawaii.

/common sense
//unless of course there are no records, then we still have an issue

But, he said it on CNN, not Fox. The radical liberals at CNN filled Trump's mouth with words.

He'd still be able to run for President even if he had been born in Kenya. It says "natural born Citizen" not "Citizen born in the territory of the United States" otherwise McCain couldn't have run (born in the Canal Zone of Panama).
