Gotta Watch: 'Birthers' here to stay

Even as the president jokingly proclaimed he was carrying an ID to prove his citizenship, it seems the "birther" movement just won't let up. These are the latest fiery interviews that seem to be fueling the movement.

'Blowhard and a phony' – Those are some strong words for Donald Trump from New York Times journalist Christopher Byron. Last night,  Trump continued to question President Obama while sparring with CNN's John King . This is Byron's fierce analysis of the feud.


Certificate just not enough - So many questions remain for conservative activist Joseph Farah, who is still not convinced that President Obama is a citizen even after the release of the birth certificate. And then there's the radio personality who claims "there's just something not right about it."


Can we please move on? - Probably not. Our Carol Costello talks to political contributors James Carville and Dana Loesch, who go head to head in this heated debate.

    Hawaii is not even legally a state...it was annexed illegally and there is still a pending agreement between the Kingdom of Hawaii & the current United States president (back in the day it was President Cleveland) to return control of the Kingdom after all of those responsible for the overthrow are pardoned...which they were in 1894! The agreement has been ignored for 118 years and there is a bill in the Hawaii State House of Representatives now to investigate the status. If Hawaii is not legally a state, then Obama is not legally an American citizen! I wish the 'birthers' could grab onto that fact!

      Catalin, you are probably right, but since Xbox360 is a DX9 icdvee, waiting for DX10 in XNA would be not much of solution for me :/But, what if we compute a line that stretches across a polygon that is supposed to cast shadow. This line would connect the two most outer points of that polygon, the ones that are on the edges of your shadow. Then we could use that line for calculating shadow using Manders method. Off course such a shadow would partially cover the shadow casting object itself, but then we could draw that object on top of the shadow layer or maybe use a pixel shader to remove parts of a shadow that intersect with the shadow casting object itself.Again this is only a rough idea, based on my common sense logic and not a deep knowledge of the XNA and shaders. The knowledge which i unfortunately don't posses (yet)

      How can you think that? Seriously... what more do you need? The level of ignorance that you and every other Trump Fan (if there actually are anymore) is absolutely astonishing. I'm extremely disappointed in the fact that there are actually people out there acknowledging the fact that this piece of s*** is even an American himself. It's disgusting.

      PS: Hawaii is a state. Unless you didn't pass 4th grade.

    alohakaneohe: are you for REAL????? Now you are going to go on the premise that Hawaii isn't even a STATE? How low will you people go to smear the POTUS?
    All you have proved is that you must be a paranoid delusional, and therefore, legally INSANE! Let it go, already; grasping at these straws makes you look really, really impotent as a human.

    • Exhausted with allowable poor behaviour and conscious stupidity

      Funny! These idiots wouldn't question Iowa or New Hampshire..etc. Once again, numbers are more important. Any state that has a lot of electoral votes or states that "set the tone" for the election outcome, would never be questioned or challenged. Sad....real sad...:-(

  4. True citizen

    Wasted energy and time on a low priority issue...Time is irreplaceable and valuable in any business or project to meet the goals...It is unfortunate. The only true 'Americans' are the indigenous people. Perhaps everyone running for office should all go through this same process and why not do DNA while were at it.

  5. Exhausted with allowable poor behaviour and conscious stupidity

    Donald Trump continues to prove over and over that he is nothing more than a girthless dick without any length. If his behaviour (the past couple of weeks and in his lifetime) in Las Vegas where his property sits barely occupied is any indication of how he will "rule" the United States and the world, then we may need to prepare to oust the new "dictator" as was done in Egypt. To behave in this manner as a potential candidate for President of the U.S. while being hosted at a women's group proves his inabilities and lack of respect for himself..the U.S. and the American people. He has become no more than a foul mouthed jerk who is enabled by the media to spew his projectile vomit at anyone he differs in opinion with. The Exorcist has already played for years to the horror and dismay of many. Must we allow and encourage this demonic presence to represent us to other countries? I think not. Stupid leaders? Yes Donald, you would be nothing more. You have become nothing more than the trainwreck you encourage us to watch on TV, and with numbers being your guide maybe they will encourge you to settle your many bankruptcies.....come clean with your lies and distractions about your own "short commings"......or maybe tell the truth as to why your property in Vegas was NOT allowed a license for gambling. Those would be a start...then you could reflect on your infidelities, your indignities, your inabilities and your obvious stupidity. Don't assume who I voted for, just KNOW I will NEVER vote for you! Ridiculous trainwrecks are bad enough on TV....but "NO Ma'am", NOT you, and NOT in this lifetime. You have waisted all of our time with your "simple minded" thoughtless behaviour. I'll bet YOU TOO can see Russia from your house!

    I just saw the birth certificate was signed by U K L Lee. Please let someone find a person with that name who lived in Hawaii at the time of the presidents birth or this thing is never going to die.
