I'm calling BS and the racist card is getting tired.
McCain is white and he had the same kind of problems - and showed his birth certificate (unfortunately he still wasn't eligible as the act of
Congress his camp always used to defend Panama birth had been repealed by Congress within a few years, back in the 1700s...).
This is/was just a hopeful angle for people paranoid about Obama for OTHER reasons - 'socialist', 'muslim-lover, 'anti-american', etc. - to
nullify what they saw as his ruination of the US. Given that the Kenyans and even his family were supposedly claiming he had been born in Mombasa,
and that he STILL has citizenship issues with his time in Indonesia and their supposed non-allowance of dual citizenship, to ascribe this all to
racism is simply ignorant and myopic, and akin to a dissonance defense of one's hero-worship.
In my opinion, the thing is a non-issue at this point regardless as the damage has already been done, we've got bigger problems to worry about, and
there was already much prior damage anyway from the other morons in Washington, but if we are in fact a nation under the rule of law, then it is a
serious matter nonetheless.
Get off the race card and pay attention to actual issues at hand, though. It's just depressing to hear someone dismiss valid concerns and say "Oh
they's just a bunch of racist hillbillies".
