I'm afraid that you're the only troll in here at this moment.

Please do find something better to do with your time.

May I suggest you re-read the original post before you foam at the mouth?

I'm not surprised that all the birther trolls showed up to crash this thread.

If it's not critical of Obama, it doesn't get many stars/flags.

Well, I did refer to birthers as being mentally-ill.

But, as long as I got this baseball bat, I'm gonna keep taking shots at this hornet nest.

Are you over 18?

Then as an adult you should be able to refrain from being insulting towards your fellow members.

Obama has never had to make payroll, he doesn't know what it means to run a business the way Trump Does.

Just look at how far he has run this country into the ground. In order to compare him favorably to Trump, you have to reduce Trump and all his amazing accomplishments to 'reality tv star'.

Anyhow, I'll expect you to refrain from being rude in your next posts. Any inability to do so goes to your credibility.

And again you make my point. Now you call me a troll and a birther troll... but the joke is on you. I am not a Birther nor am I a troll. Unless you consider a troll to be someone who disagrees with you, which in that case it makes perfect sense because when someone disagrees with you, go call them names. You do it in all the threads I see you participate in.

OMG, are you saying that the OP lied?

It is against the T & C to just make up lies about people, places or things.

Are you certain their are no posts wherein you admit to be a 'birther'?

I think your post is offensive defensive and inflammatory. It is also personally directed at the author which I find reprehensible. You have every right not to like this President but to stoop to the level of attacking and disparaging individual citizens while they do nothing worse than make a reasonable argument to defend one incident simply because YOU detest the man is simply despicable, cowardly and uncalled for in my humble opinion.


Of course my post is directed at the OP. Almost every post you find on these boards, in any forum, is directed at the OP. I am sorry if I think I am attacking the OP, but maybe you should see the way this OP has attacked others. If he suddenly feels like he is getting a taste of his own medicine, that is ok with me. Personally I do not think I am attacking him at all. It is not like I am sitting here saying he is mentally ill, he is an idiot, or any other number of things that this OP says about others on a daily basis.

Find one and post it. I will sit here and wait while you do.

I am not a birther at all. My opinion on the "Birther" issue is all over these boards. In my opinion it is a non issue.

Oh I guess I should mention, since you obviously will not, that I began typing my reply while you were busy editing the OP 5 times, so if you happen to change the content from what it was originally, then maybe you should be bit more cautious and make sure you have your point made before posting a new thread.

Wow, thanks man.

It is not everyday someone gets caught out making stuff up like the OP just did.

*Anyways back to business - how do you think Trump will respond to this?

Do you think he will lay off or will he amp up his game?

I think I will only respect

The humans

Of this earth

From now on

That notices the last president

Always has the weight

Of all the presidents

Before him.

From the good decisions

To the atrocious decision.

I will never stoop my self this low again ,unless reality is in connection to the topic.

Sorry he edited his OP 3 times, not 5.

My opinion? Yes Trump will respond. What we are seeing is nothing more than Entertainment. That is all it is. One big distraction. While the media and the sheep spend countless hours talkign about this war of words and all the drama between Trump and Obama... what they will not be talking about is 2 failed Wars that we were promised to be pulled out of. We will not be talking about our 3rd new War brought to us by this Noble Peace Prize winning President. We wont be talking about the unemployed. We will not be talking about any real issue. Instead everyone will talk about Trump and Obama.

Fact is Trump has been a democratic financial contributor for years. Now all the sudden he wants to run as a Republican? When exactly did he change parties? It is my belief that this is all for show. If Trump does decide to run, especially on a 3rd party ticket, it will be to split the votes and that will guarantee Obama's second term. If Trump manages to get on the Republican ticket, he will be the lame duck Candidate who is propped up knowing full well he can not beat Obama.

No decent business man knows how to run a business like Trump. If they did, they would constantly file for bankruptcy like Trump does. They would also constantly outsource to China while complaining about America not producing things. They would also rely on miraculously-timed markets and G.I. Bills to allow for ignoring proper risk assessment.

Trump is a classic case of being overprivileged, squandering away said privileges, then continuing to get credit for whatever wealth he's able to hold on to through investment bail-outs and bankruptcies.

I'm normally never this venomous towards anybody, ever... but this guy is the embodiment of a forum troll but on a national level.

I must be living in a parallel universe because when Obama took over, the country was already one foot in the grave, the other on slippery ground.

But, keep on believing.

Nice try, troll.

Don't you have a birther thread with your name on it somewhere?

I was adding onto my original post, not changing anything.

I agree greatly with you and it's just stupid for people to go at him the way they do. If I was obama then I would be laughing at everyone who said i was not born here because i know of no where else i was born. no irritation just a whole lot of brushing off haters

Guys, the Correspondents Dinner is a night of jokes. All Presidents make fun of themselves and others. Of course he had to poke fun at Trump, it's almsot mandatory to make jokes about this matter. But still, we have you guys making an issue of a night of comedy. This thread and all the posters is a joke just like the dinner. Get over yourselves already!

For a certain percentage of the country, this has been true since November 2008. There is nothing he can do to please this segment of the population - even if he tries, they move the goal post. (Example - Trump now going on about his educational records... ).

I honestly figured these people would have long since worn themselves out, but thanks to the "liberal media" they seem to always have a national platform to broadcast their drivel.

Are you implying that any perspective or disagreement with your point of view on this issue "proves your point"...of what exactly? Congratulations for designing a thread that tries to shoot down/discredit opposing views before any are even posted, however this thread design doesn't leave much room for discussion then does it?

Well, I shall not "flame" you by my standards anyway but I do disagree.

As an elected official which is all the POTUS is (or is supposed to be) he should not be laughing at, discrediting, or scoffing, at legitimate questions his ELECTORS may have for him regarding ANY of his decisions or qualifications to make said decisions. This is the nature of the beast when it comes to being POTUS, every president before him has endured criticism and rightfully so.

Thankfully the people of the US are notorious for criticizing and questioning the actions and policies of those they put in charge as without it I'm sure you could imagine how much more corrupt things would/could be.

Having said that the president seems a little butt hurt that he is being questioned and the WHCD an opportune time to "get even" so to speak.

I would say that Obama's shot at trump was justified but the POTUS shot at trump wasn't...hopefully you can make the distinction between the two and understand why the POTUS shouldn't be making sarcastic condescending comedy about the concerns of what really is a problematic issue that HE HIMSELF has fueled with his lack of transparency and drag ass approach to what HE "OBAMA" has deemed not important...

unfortunately for OBAMA a significant portion of voters who put his ass in the luxurious position (that he decided to turn for) of POTUS wasn't answers on this and think its pretty important.

He may have a personal right to be butt hurt and want to retaliate with condescending sarcasm but not the presidential right. The people have the right to ask him whatever the hell they want that pertains to his position without his 2c about it....PERIOD...

and thats my 2c ...lol

If there's one thing I've noticed it's that the OP cannot stop championing Obama, no matter what.

My opinion as a far left Socialist(by European standards, not American Democrat standards lol) is that Obama is a disgrace. A fraud and a pretender.

It's also my opinion that the entire birther issue is just a distraction to lead people away from real issue.

BUT it's also my opinion that the role of President shouldn't involve stand-up level comedy. If I wanted to watch a couple of politicians argue their case with jokes and stupidity I'd watch Idiocracy.

I think the way American politics is moving is very very dangerous. Regardless of what your political opinion is, Obamas display was outright disgraceful. As was that nonsense movie trailer parodying The Kings Speech.

If you think that's normal behaviour I worry about the direction we're moving in. Obama is close to becoming worse than Bush, and it takes alot for me to say that as a far left Socialist, it really does.

But carry on Americans. Keep up the Democrat - Republican charade, I assure you even if you think you're on the right or moral side, the world is laughing at you. I'm laughing at you, OP.
