    Yeah, even speaking as someone who’s fairly conservative, this cartoon is dead on. Trump is starting to come off as someone who’s listened to just a little too much Glen Beck….

    So he caved in and released the long form. Obviously that’s not going to be good enough. What’s the next bogus hoop the birthers expect him to jump through?

    Only goes to show money doesn’t always come with brains. There’s a difference between intelligent and shrewd.

    How could you think otherwise? Daddy gave him his “seed money” and he’s managed to bankrupt three companies. Yup, Trump’s a business genius!

    Cartoon is funny, but it doesn’t make Obama any less of a socialist. A dope is a dope and they’re both dopes.

    100 years from now, old Clark will still be blaming Bush for whatever ails us. Wasn’t Obama supposed to fix all these problems? No?

    “Wasn’t Obama supposed to fix all these problems?”

    That’s what we were hoping, which is why many of us are disappointed in him. Of course Republicans have hampered his goals. Not to mention he still didn’t START a lot of the stuff Republicans blame him for. Much of it was started by his predecessor, who got a pass from the same Republicans who blame Obama.

    Bush could barely produce a single dental check up as proof of serving in the reserves and it was supposed to be good enough. Obama has now submitted 2 certified birth certificates and some people STILL don’t believe he was born in the US.

    I didn’t vote for Obama (and I wouldn’t unless the Republicans ran Osama bin Laden or Gadhafi) but the ones I like to laugh at are the ones who were such staunch supporters of him in 2008 and now hate his guts. You guys got what you wanted. As Palin says, “How’s that hopey-changey thing working out for you?”

    It’s like this natureboy…

    We DIDN’T get what we wanted, and that’s why we’re down on Obama. Palin and the rest of the Teaparty gang want the world to believe that the disaffection with the Prez is some kind of ‘proof’ of the faliure of liberalism.

    Ehhh, wrong!

    Obama hasn’t been successful, in our view, because he bailed on the progressive wing of the party as soon as he got in. He hasn’t been liberal in his policies; again and again, he’s caved in to. guess who? That’s right, the REPUBLICANS.

    And by the way, how’s that Tea-Bag thing workin’ out for YOU, eh? Came into office on a promise of jobs, and then turned around and concentrated on social legislation and birtherisim instead. That may play well to the ultra-cons…but the indies and moderates ain’t none too happy right now.

    And that’s not even mentioning the cat-fight over raising the debt ceiling the R’s are having amongst themselves right now.

    Laugh while you can….

    Oh, and pavlov….

    In another thread I made this statement….

    “It’s not when all else fails, play the race card, it’s, when all else fails, ACCUSE someone of ‘playing the race card.”

    Thank you for proving it’s veracity. I do appreciate it.

    Who’s the nuttier, Trump, or the guy that was afraid to let us see his birth certificate? You know that if a Republican held back his birth certificate, the media would have crucified him years ago. As lame as the birthers may have been, it’s not as lame as holding back a birth certificate.

    I think you should post your birth certificate. How do I know you’re not an alien from outer space. If you don’t respond to this in the next 5 minutes I have no choice but to believe you have something to hide.

    He posted both copies of his birth certificate. It’s been 12 years and I’m still waiting for Bush to post his proof he actually served during ‘nam like he says.

    I don’t understand why people think there should have never been a debate about some guy with a Kenyan father, who was most likely (?) adopted by an Indonesian, who travelled to Pakistan on some passport, who got into Harvard with admittedly poor grades, etc…etc…becoming President of the United States? That is what the Constitution is there for, to protect the rights of the minority against the “tyranny” of the majority, right? It seems likely that the birth certificate provided by Obama asserts that he is, at best, a dual-citizen of America and the British crown, and therefore, not eligible to be POTUS. There are other problems too, but that one is just for starters.

    Here’s McCain’s BC, Justice:

    Habanero, you are wrong – or perhaps I should say “misguided,” since it is obvious you are parroting – in so many ways it’s hard to begin. First of all, you do realize that our first eight presidents were British citizens? Martin Van Buren was our first president born after the Declaration (though still before the adoption of the Constitution). Who said he was adopted by an Indonesian? Who said he had poor grades? What does that have to do with him being President anyway? Ten Presidents – including Lincoln, Truman, and Washington – never graduated from college at all, let alone graduate school (and since he got magnacumlaude from Harvard, he’s obviously smart AND a good student, whether he showed it in college or not). And there were plenty of mediocre college students who became president, including Obama’s predecessor. Who says someone with dual citizenship is ineligible? Still listening to old Trump, eh? By those standards, McCain isn’t eligible, either…

    Tell me pav.

    How do you KNOW that was ‘wagging the dog’ when Clinton attacked Sudan and Kosovo? Where;s your proof, or are we supposed to believe that just because YOU said it?

    And what you seem to be saying is this: “Anyone who accuses Trump of racist leanings is automatically, ‘playing the race card.””

    Explain to me why that’s valid. Are you saying there’s NO way that what Trump said could have been racially motivated? Because unless that’s the case, no one was ‘playing the race card,’, it’s a perfectly valid criticism.

    I stand by what I said earlier, when all else fails, accuse someone of playing the race card.

    TCL, I thought you’d be glad! More votes for the french-friendly but federalist NDP in Quebec equals less votes for the lys-nut, separatist bloc Québecois.

    Have you watched the french debate? (Here’s my take on it, and the playoffs; For most of it, Duceppe accused the other parties of not being what he is; a separatist. This year, though, it didn’t work. He’s clearly loosing ground in the opinion polls.

    That means the sovereignity option is losing ground, too.

    Sorry if you were humiliated by some french-speaking morons, I’ve had a few english-speaking friends who were yelled at, too and I also have french-speaking friends who got the same treatment from english people.

    But those people who used racial slurs were not québecois or english canadians, just morons. There are lots and lots of those around the world. In september 2001, 2000 people were killed by intolerance. not despised, not yelled at but murdered.

    More things like that happened on a bigger scale before and on a smaller scale since and will probably still happen in the future but still, we see the ifference between muslim and islamist, between christian and zealot, between jew and right-wing zionist.

    Please see the difference between french-canadian and lys-nut.
