Ten Reasons for Obama’s Comeback

Posted on November 12, 2011 by

1) Growing public doubt that republicans offer a serious alternative

            The Perry / Cain spectacle is a turnoff

 

2) The economy has bottomed out

            Hiring may inch up

 

3) Occupy Wall Street has changed the national conversation

            Economic inequality is on the table

 

4) Progressives are less obsessed with what the president is doing wrong

            Big picture issues are finally getting attention

 

5) The vote in Ohio shows conservative over-reach

            Cops, firefighters, teachers and nurses are not the problem

 

6) Americans like the guy

            He’s honest and decent and he’s learning the ropes

 

7) Michelle and the girls

            A beautiful family all Americans can be proud of

 

8) The European crisis is scary

            It’s tough here but thank God we’re not Greece

 

9) The election’s a year away

            The tea party takeover of the House didn’t work out

 

10) Troops coming home

           Iraq and Afghanistan are winding down

    Never had a smidgen of doubt. There has never been any competition that comes close to President Obama’s brilliance and ability to address any problem this country has. For someone to be handed a huge economic mess from the previous administration as he has, and to remain diligent to help the country vs the party speaks volumns about him. OBAMA 2012!!!

    • Sam Houston says:

      Yes he is brilliant and smart like a wolf and he has got you fooled, but the facts about who the real obama is and where he developed his mind set comes from his associations with communist, Marxist, and socialist and it is how he hopes to eventually rule America.

      • Greg says:

        Are you intensionally ignorant, or really believe that drivel…?One term in has nullified all such moronic claims, and nothing will change in a second term..He actually has not done enough to change what the big idiot GW did, like GitMo, tax policies, etc…PLUS he has killed more terrorists than GW could blink at…..so much for claims of SOFT ON EVIL…..Get an education Sam……

        • Chris Porter says:

          Greg, well said! Sam needs to go to Kindergarten to be educated about current affairs and who is the President, that Terrorists fear the most….And the President is Barack OBAMA, the guys who don’t speak or boast about his achievements..Listening to all those Idiots tonight make me more comforatble with our current President…BO, is the guy for the next 4 years….Romney, today he is for abortion, tomorrow he is against Abortion. Herman Cain, is an habitual sex harasser..Newt, divorce his sick wife whilst on her sick bed….Ron Paul, is a madman!! Michele Bachmann, is out of touch and need to see the TRUTH DOCTOR!! John HUntsman, is, is not really a GOP favorite because of his religion….and..and Rick, who..Rick Perry, who is not so smart as a Kindergarten, has no chance…So all of the GOP group are hopeless, visionless and not eligible to be President of the USA….That’s a fact..OBAMA 2012= 4 More Years!

        • Kathie Stelzner says:

          Greg~Sam does have an education and he has it right.

      • Chris Porter says:

        Sam Houston, you’re living in a different world! Yes, he is one of our smartest and brightest President, and for your information he is not a Marxist or a Socialist. Remember, if the President is a Socialist all of us as Americans are Socialist because we pay into Social Security that guaranteen benefits for the Old, Infirm, Disabled and the Poor. More or less you do not have the traits of a decent human being. And if you’re a Conservative/Republican who has been talking about Jesus Christ, you guys need to be praising the DEVIL….Because Jesus Christ is love and he was a not a BIGOT. Most of all he was an advocate for the poor, not RICH……HOPE YOU LEARN SOMETHING TODAY and stop bash our President because you do not like him….Well how about 4 more years??? 2017, Jan.20, he is going to demits office. Go to South America, Mexico or Europe, or the Middle East since you hate him so much.

        • Sam Houston says:

          Obama was ensconced as President on January 20, 2009. Just one day after his inauguration, he signed Executive Order No. 13489 which essentially violates the Freedom of Information Act and prohibits the release of Obama’s personal and presidential records, during and after his presidency, by the National Archives without first being consulted by the National Archives Director and the Attorney General. Seven days later, Obama gave his famous “Transparency Will Be the Touchstone of This Administration” speech in which he hypocritically admonished previous administrations for what he feels are “too many secrets kept by government in Washington”. Obama vowed to change how government deals with secret information by making his administration more open. Since this dishonest, landmark speech, the Administration has fought to keep Obama’s past secret more than any other President in American history.

        • Kathie Stelzner says:

          Chris – Wake up and smell this president, where have you been?

      • Sara says:

        And the only way to stop him is with a silver stake to the heart. Yada yada yada. You do realize that communism and socialism, are at the opposite end of the spectrum? Of course not, the talking points didn’t say that. You just sound foolish Sam.

      • Sherry Ilkanic says:

        You mean CommunISM, MarxISM, and socialISM. You need to go back to your teaparty rally and come up with new incoherant dribble because the US is a socialist democracy. Every shared resource paid with tax dollars we benefit from is socialism and anyone who brings up that “argument” is identified from space as a trolling moron or “moran” if you prefer and as for communism and marxism, get fitted for your tin foil hat, because with nothing to back up that “duh, cuz the republikans sed so” rant, you’re kind is being left behind. Oh, and yes, Bachman of the Tea Party republicans insists we need to be more like china, adopt communism… good luck with your hypocracy.

        • Bill Graham says:

          Well said! That so-called Sam Houston is a pitiful case indeed. These Tea Party Patriots and Tea Party Expresses are Tea Party something elses.

      • Elizabeth 11 says:

        Sam –

        You genuinely have no idea what you are talking about.

        Having read through all of your posts here, I have to say, even with all of your $64 words, you really are just an a$$hole.

        • Kathie Stelzner says:

          Hmmmm, name calling, so left leaning rhetoric reigns again. Some of you people on this post really need to do YOUR homework because Sam knows exactly what he’s talking about. Ignorance sure is bliss, isn’t it!!!

      • pythoncharly says:

        you are a republicon fool if you believe any of that,
        and please tell us why a Marxist is so much more worse than a fascist corporatist of a republiclown?

      • Sue says:

        rule America?? He is the president ya know, not a king like the wingnuts like to claim! Sorry Righties but Barack Obama IS our president, get used to it!

      • sean007e says:

        your smoking something

      • Kathie Stelzner says:

        You got it on the head Sam!

      • kate says:

        duh, he is ruling America…you’re funny…

  2. Greg says:

    One more reason is that he has gone around this very disfunctional, low approval rated congress to make things happen to help the economy. And since those tea party conservatives will not allow the president to shore up or rebuild our infrastructure, start building a wall at our borders. Just the mere mention of a wall at these Republican debates gets everyone hooting and hollering. That should pull in a few more votes for his re-election.

  3. Larry Kaplan says:

    Well said—and probably right, I hope!

  4. He’s got my support now that he’s at least temporarily stopped the Keystone XL Pipeline, showing more independence from Big Oil than I thought he had.

  5. Sam Houston says:

    The U.S. Constitution requires that a presidential candidate be a natural-born citizen in order to be eligible for the office of President.
    In seeking to define the meaning of “natural born citizenship”, those who blindly support Obama desperately seek a minimalist’s definition of the term. They desire that a natural-born citizen is one to whom may be ascribed as few requirements as possible in order that a candidate, with whom they share ideological fetishes, can be president regardless of his actual fitness for the office. They seek to assume jurisdiction over the declaration of being “natural born” in the minds of as many as possible while contending that “natural born citizenship” means the fewest, most remedial natal circumstances possible, which will allow their politigod, Barack Obama, just enough legitimacy to squeak by and be eligible
    Their definition allows Obama to merely meet what they consider the most easily argued, though obviously unverifiable characteristics of Obama’s obscure citizenry, in this case, his birth place.
    However, unfortunately for Obama supporters, the purposed intent of our founders was not so slight in this matter. They sought to make the meaning of being a natural born citizen the highest, most laudable position of all forms of citizenry
    America’s founders desired that becoming President of the United States to be as difficult as possible…politically, socially and biologically. Hence, logically, our founders induced that the highest form of eligibility for the highest office would be a lawful mandate.

    • T Santora says:

      Biologically? Really? Houston, we have a problem. It’s called racism.

      • Sam Houston says:

        If it were about racism I would have really said someting crude. Besides I did not mention any thing about his race only that there are plenty of people who do not think he is eligible to be president

        • Paul says:

          Yes, but most of those people are racists (and idiots). You have to start thinking for yourself!!! Quit watching or at least quit believing Faux News. Do your research and then talk with some intelligence!

      • Kathie Stelzner says:

        It’s called born in the U.S.A. T Santora, nothing more.

      • J T Foote says:

        exactly!, I know many people around here that are living off the government and turn around and bash the president. total racism. I say you support the hand that feeds you.

    • Paul says:

      He was born in Hawaii, that is part of the United States, that makes him a natural born citizen. Just as natural born as any of the presidents before him. Accept it, and get over it! Yes, a black man was elected president, get over it! I haven’t heard any of you question the lot of republican candidates about proving where they were born.

      • No Koolaid Drinker Here says:

        He isnt black… he’s a half-breed! I don’t care if he’s flourescent pink. He’s hiding a LOT…..spent tons to keep his college records secured, and has no experience whatsoever.

    • Bob Howes says:

      By Sam Houston’s narrow and bigoted view of “biological” nationality, only native Americans would qualify for the presidency.

      Oh, hang on, many centuries ago even they were immigrants across the land bridge from Mongolia.

      I wonder if we can find a 35 year old bison to run?

    • Jeez, Sam, another birther, and 250 words to tell us so? You sound intelligent; and yet why do I still think you need to get a life.

    • Bill Graham says:

      So … you simply disagree with the Supreme Court about our living breathing social contract: The Constitution.

      Fiasci. Do you know what fascia are? Do you drink Chianti? Have you read the writings and rantings of Benito Mussolini? You are on the side of the “one corporation-one vote” folks allied against Obama because he IS so incredibly talented. The TP’s are puppets of these fascists, i.e corporatists, are will be discarded when their usefulness has passed.

    • D. Brown says:

      Ah, a birther. Well that pretty much says it all about you. Folks, don’t bother arguing with this one. He’s a lost cause…

    • TC says:

      That’s a lot of pretty rhetoric you’re spouting, there, but you never actually made a point in all that rambling. The Constitution says that a person must meet two our of the three of these:
      * be a natural-born citizen of the United States;
      * be at least thirty-five years old;
      * have been a permanent resident in the United States for at least fourteen years.

      Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_Eligibility_for_the_president#ixzz1deTbptHf
      People love to forget the whole “permanent resident for at least 14 years (congress only requires seven years)” part. He was born in Hawaii, is over 35, and have most certainly lived in the US who more that 14 years. The time he spent out of the country was relatively short, but regardless he was naturally born on United States soil.

      There goes that argument.

    • Elinor says:

      The Constitution provides only three requirements for the office of President:
      1. that he be a natural born citizen of the U.S.
      Hawaii counts, it is a state of the Union
      2. that he be at least 35 years of age
      3. that he has been a resident of the US for at least 14
      years of age
      Obama’s birthplace is not obscure except to those whose minds are easily fooled. Please also read my comment on Executive order #13489, posted today, which reveals more of your erroneous beliefs which you have not made any attempt to fact check.

  6. Greg II says:

    So Sam, you can’t be arguing that even though President Obama was born here, the Founding Fathers never intended a man who was initially considered to be three fifths of a human and could only be considered property would ever be in a position to be the actual sitting, legitimate President. Is that what you are arguing Sam. Because if it is, you are a little slow. Just a little.

    • Sam Houston says:

      I do not know if he was born here are not only he probably knows. But if he is not eligible, born here are not he is not eligible.

      • Paul says:

        There are millions of Americans that know he was born in the USA. He has provided the same proof as all others before him! Unless you are suggesting that a grand scheme was made up in the early 60′s, so that a black man could become president, fifty years later. Is that what you think?

        • Sam Houston says:

          It has never been proven so they are myself do not really know. If you call a forged BC proof then you take too much for granted

        • J T Foote says:

          Sam, what koolaid are you drinking, he would have NEVER been put on the ballet if he did not qualify to be president…I can not believe this is still an issue.

      • Brian says:

        Huh? Can you translate that from Gibberish to English for me?

        • Sherry Ilkanic says:

          He’s a birther idiot. The lowest form of troll on the Earth. his “are” is “or”. He’s insisting the birth certificate is forged because he’s soooo smart. It’s a major conspiracy… all proof is not really proof unless it proves what he wants it to prove. this is why he’s going to get a second term. This is the most intellegent debates AGAINST him being president. Nice, huh?

      • Kathy says:

        Sam, have you been living under a rock? If you don’t know if he was born here, then you are closing your eyes to all the evidence that is out there. It is kind of ridiculous that some of you keep holding on to this!!! GET OVER IT!!!!

        • Sam Houston says:

          There are over 20 experts that will tell you his BC was forged. There are no experts that say his BC is the real thing. If it is so real why did he spend so much money on keeping it hid and which it is still hid.

      • Jo Hargis says:

        “born here are not”……and he said it not once, but twice.

        I believe we can rest our case…er..or is that “rest are case”, so Sam can understand it?

  7. Bill Thomas says:

    Lou, spot on. So far the Republicans are showing us nothing but messy. I put my blue “Obama 2012″ bumpersticker on the Mini Cooper last week, one year to the day before he takes it.

  8. phil g says:

    This guy Sam H doesn’t make any sense because he just complains about birth items. That is typical of almost all gripers of Obama. Never a solution just critical with so as to bring a doubt. It won’t work. The people are tired of just that!! Only diehard party members that can’t see beyond their nose, just bitch, bitch bitch, without anyideas to go with it. I guess that is how they want to win the election gripe gripe O k so you win, then what ? duh!! Congress republicans are messing it all up period !!

    • No Koolaid Drinker Here says:

      LOL… and you libs do nothing but claim we listen to Hannity, Rush, or Fox News. Hilarious!

      Go ahead and worship your Messiah, the one who doesn’t even know how many states comprise this great country that Moochelle was never proud of.

      • Bill Graham says:

        Sam, belief loses to evidence and reason every time. President Obama was a citizen when he was born, and, if you are an anti-choice person, even before that. Wake up. A mind is a terrible thing to close.

      • Nease Burke says:

        Do you wash your sheet every night or get it dry cleaned once a week?

      • Jo Hargis says:

        Now see, that’s a great example of the desperation of baggers. They have to go back to Obama’s misspeak of 57 states….from 3 years ago…and back to the birther crap…from 3 years ago…and why? Because that’s all they have. That’s it, folks. Must be tough being a bagger these days, with no ammunition to speak of. Watching their party crumble into history.

    • Sam Houston says:

      Later I will give you guys a differnt subject to talk about. As for as the solution goes get the POTRUS out of the White House. Sometimes you have to be blunt and critical to get the real truth before the non believers who fail to search for all of the truth, good and bad.

  9. Rugga 49 says:

    The reason that republicans are desperate, the only winner they have had in the last 20 yrs – W, only won with a squeaky (Florida) electoral victory, Rove understands this which is why they attack the voters, desperation.

  10. Jayson Huth says:

    Sam is typical of Obama’s opposition. He is an example of why Obama is coming back. Does America really want people as fucked up in the head as Sam driving the bus? No. Sam thinks he represents a majority because he is told that. Let him believe it. Come election day, I’m sure Sam will blame and whine and gripe, but the truth is, the ideology Sam represents has no successes to brag about and no new ideas to replace the failed ones. He represents failure, as does the Republican party, although they are quick to point out ALL failures are because of Liberals, as if no Republican legislation over the last 30 years ever passed. People who oppose Republicans are not idiots, and the sooner people like Sam realize that, the better it will be for their overall mental health.

  11. Kat Martin says:

    The eleventh reason for the President’s comeback is the existence of people like Sam Houston. Bizarre conspiracy theorists who are apparently oblivious to the real challenges facing this country and the fact that Obama is addressing them. But this is true of much of the GOP. They have no solutions of their own, so instead try to derail the President’s efforts. In their attempt to harm him they are damaging the country, but that doesn’t seem to concern them. Keep screaming, Sam, you’re a wonderful asset for the Democrats.

    • Jayson Huth says:

      Ha we said the same thing. I’m glad it’s not glaringly obvious to just me. :) Sam should just keep being Sam, it helps us. I hope he goes to major media outlets and comments with his unoriginal thoughts and ideas.

    • Greg says:

      I could not agree more Kat! If Sam and “not a koolaid drinker” had posted before me, I would have nominated them for an additional top twenty reasons why President Obama will be elected. My Obama stickers have been on my FORD vehicles for over a month. No knock on the Mini Cooper but is it an American auto?

  12. Jo Hargis says:

    Jayson said it exactly right. People like Sam and the other baggers here are precisely why people are just fed UP with the republican party. All your crazy conspiracy theories, inability to even reason an argument out, sucking up every Limpballs point you hear, your complete lack of compassion for fellow man, and your crazzzzzzy radical religious platforms have driven more republicans to vote for Obama in 12 than ever in the history of this nation. And every one of you baggers are absolutely clueless how ignorant you sound. Entertainment at its best.

  13. Sam Houston says:

    To all of you who think i am a birther you obviously have not done your homework so i have done it for you. In early summer, 2007, the so called “Birther” conspiracy theory was first created by renegade members of an ultra leftist group known as the PUMAs. (That’s right! They were leftists). They were a splinter group of hard-core Hillary Clinton supporters who did not want to surrender the Democrat party nomination to Obama after a hard fought campaign leading to the 2008 Democratic nomination. In June, 2008, PUMAParty.com began promoting the idea that their party’s nomination of Barack Obama could be overturned on constitutional grounds that he was not eligible to be president based on the fact that he may not be a natural born citizen. Thus, the Birther movement actually began in the minds of liberals, not “right-wing nuts” as Obama zealots love to claim.

  14. Christine Cyr says:

    Ok guys enough with the Obama hate and scandals. Is it because you can’t stand to see a black man in office cleaning up after the white man ? Or is it you think the Bush’s did such a fabulous job with the screwing up? He had more than enough elephant shit to clean up behind the Republicans. How many years did we give them? It sure as hell isn’t gonna get fixed in an instant. I do believe we ALL need more schooling on the current politics at hand. Yeah we need more Palins and Cains in the world. Not ! Obama 2012 .

  15. Christine Cyr says:

    Sam go night night now.

    • Sam Houston says:

      That is a good idea maybe when I come back to talk to you guys you will have learned to talk in a civil manner and exercise your thoughts with logic instead of crude remarks. God Bless you all and say your prayers.

  16. John Duncan says:

    Wow Sam is out there in looney-tunes land. And I also do not understand why those who talk about Kool-aid drinking (the name No Koolaid drinker here) prove with every idiotic claim and insult that they drink the kool-aid of Fox every day. Both of these guys, ignorant and hashing over OLD talking points anyway.

  17. Jeanie McCulloch says:

    Putting my sticker for Obama on tomorrow. I’m tired of these birthers…I think they don’t understand Hawaii is a State
    Ashamed as a Texan of Perry. His freezing in the debate reminded me of President Bush freezing for 7 minutes while we were under attack. I will never forgive the Republicans who gave us Bush who failed to get Osama as promised and even told us he quit looking!
    We need Obama who can think on his feet!!!
    And Cain is a paid lobbyist for industry, not a businessman since 1996. If you sign an agreement to pay 2 woman to not disclose sexual harrassment it is because there is something to hide. I grew up in the days when women were attacked for speaking out about being groped…oh yah, they still are. The man is a lobbyist, sexual harrasser, unschooled in foreign affairs and his 9 % sales taxs on top of our 8 1/2% state sales tax will swamp the poor and elderly.
    Republicans are truly getting scary.

  18. Dee B says:

    Sam, It is too bad that the truth is that you can’t fix stupid. I’m sorry man, there is no help for you.

  19. Stephen D. Lewis, JD says:

    I am with you Sam … all of these idiots will lose and this country will become great again!!!!!

  20. Dee B says:

    You, who worry about Democrats versus Republicans – relax, here is our real problem :

    In a Purdue University classroom, they were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States. It was pretty simple. The candidate must be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age. However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen. In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president.

    The class was taking it in and letting her rant, and not many jaws hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating “What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?”

    Yep, these are the same kinds of people that are now voting in our elections! They breed and walk among us…

  21. Diane Long says:

    It’s best to ignore inflammatory trolls such as Sam Houston. He came here for one reason–to bring out the worst in us–so stop helping him succeed.

    This is a place to celebrate the reelection candidacy of President Barack Obama! Let’s remain positive and upbeat and not waste time or energy on trolls. He is not the subject here, President Obama’s Campaign IS!!

  22. Keith Davies says:

    Obama would LOSE to Ron Paul in a general election. Paul would capture the independent, youth, and anti-war vote.

  23. Dee S. says:

    Sam, here’s a little quiz for you…

    The “Tea Party” is…

    (A) Another variation of The John Birch Society

    (B) A “cause” created by ex-Congressman Dick Armey, and bankrolled by the Koch Brothers, to help push an
    extremist Conservative agenda, in the guise of being “anti-government”

    (C) For little girls with lots of stuffed toys and invisible
    playmates

    (D) A scene from “ALICE IN WONDERLAND”

  24. B Nash says:

    You can fool most of the people all the time , and those are ones you concentrate on .

    George W Bush’s words.

    I believe S . Houston is one of Bush’s alltime fools.

  25. Russell says:

    It truly makes me laugh how people get so heated about who the president is and who the president is Going to be but fail to realize without the suport of congress it doesn’t mater who is in office if congress wants to do something they will!

    • Alicia says:

      Russell, thank you for bringing up the issue that has been missed along the way. Our president needs a Congress that shares our forward-thinking views. People think things like, “Oh, I saw his ad on T.V.” Or, “His name sounds familiar, I’ll vote for him.” The really scary scenario is when people think they have to vote for both parties to create a balanced legislature. We all saw what insanity that has created since the mid-term elections. Total waste of legislative time. Voting Straight-party ticket next year!!

  26. deborah b. says:

    Finally, a thoughtful response. Thank you.

  27. Sam Houston says:

    LOGIC-a science that deals with principles and criteria of validity of inference and demonstration: the science of formal principles of reasoning.
    COMPREHENSION- the act or action of grasping with the intellect: understanding: to grasp the nature, significance, or meaning of truth of everything which man may understand.
    Some of you are lacking in logic and comprehension as shown by your reply of hateful, crude, and derogatory remarks in condemnation of my posts. You fail to use the good sense God gave you. You fail in trying to use that good sense to see if maybe what I posted is true. You fail to use that good sense and understand what is going to happen to this country if I am right. You fail to use that good sense to see you have been blinded by the rhetoric of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. You fail to use that good sense to discern the truth that you maybe following another “Jim Jones” type massacre in the destruction of America through economic destruction and eventually an attempted Muslim take over to convert this country into an American Caliphate. No I do not hate obama, I am scared of him and what the socialist, Marxist, communist influence in his life is doing to America, our freedom of speech, our freedom of religion, and our constitution. Of course if you still insist that God has nothing to do with our lives and that the constitution is no longer valid, and you think the socialist way of life is the only way of life then vote for obama again and may God bless you souls. I am not a Republican, Tea Party member or a hard core independent, I am an American who loves this country, my country and your country and I hate to see it go to waste because of blind stupidity. Do you really think that I would post these comments if I did not have or read the facts to support them. It does me no good or you no good to lie to you. Lies would make me as deceitful as obama.

  28. I can’t believe I’m reading this. The kind of fears, ( I am scared of him and what the socialist, Marxist, communist influence in his life is doing to America, our freedom of speech, our freedom of religion, and our constitution) is the narrow, constrained path that uneducated, narrow-minded souls, fear mongering bigots take.

    • Sam Houston says:

      The fact that you did not comprehend or use any logic in your reply indicates you are example of what I said about people making derogatory remarks because you are frustrated about what I said. He was raised by socialis and communist parents, It is a fact. and because he does believe in aliah not God and was rasied to do so in muslim school in Kenya. Before you call me uneducated because of what I post check the facts, thay are all over the internet. Ivf you don not believe those then I will give you some more you want like about his days spent in the Patrice LaMumba University in Russia. That is mother probably had an affair with Malcom X in Washington State 1960 and could be huis real fathwer and that may be the cover up of his real BC that no one has seen in public.

    boy Sam you are a gas. Obama was raised in Hawaii by his white mid western grand parents, he spent three years in Indonesia. If Ma;colm mX was his dad, he would be 100% of US descent and there would be no argument about his lack of citizenship.He also would be much lighter in complexion. Obama did not go to Kenya until he was in his thirties. Allah is the Arabic word for GOD, the muslims believe in the same god, the God of Abraham, that christians and jews do. Muslims believe the bible is a sacred text, they believe the Koran is an additional text. If you were to read the Koran, you will see a rehash of many tales in the bible. google koran, there are full translations on line.

    You make many ridiculous claims. If Obama was not a citizen, Hilary’s campaign would’ve outed him. In the meanwhile , his opponent McCain was born in Panama. You have no experts who claim his BC is not authentic and he released the long form much to Donald Trump’s chagrin, the day before he took Osama bin laden out of circulation.

    There are ten points in this article. Why don’t you get out your lexicon and thesaurus and address them logically and intelligently.

    To everyone else let’s stop engaging with the troll, They visit blogs in groups of two or three and rty to earn money by derailing the conversation. They get bonuses for taking over and controlling the conversation, some on the right think that the disinformation and baiting keep people from engaging in useful conversations that may lead to action. So let Sam or whoever go ahead and talk to himself and his partner going forward.

      Barack Hussein Obama attended school in Indonesia 1967-1971. Obama’s Kenyan birth father: In Islam, religion passes from the father to the child. Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was a Muslim who named his boy Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Only Muslim children are named “Hussein”. Obama’s Indonesian family: His stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, was also a Muslim. “Documents showed he enrolled as a Muslim” while at a Catholic school during first through third grades. The Chicago Tribune confirms that Obama was “listed as a Muslim on the registration form for the Catholic school.” “Barack Hussein Obama was registered under the name ‘Barry Soetoro’ serial number 203 and entered the Franciscan Asisi Primary School on 1 January 1968 and sat in class 1B. … Barry’s religion was listed as Islam.” Obama attended 2 schools, one Catholic and one Muslim. He had Koran class: Indonesian students in his day attended religious classes according to their faith. Indeed, Obama still retains knowledge from the Koran “reciting the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, with a first-rate accent.” He went to the mosque,wearing a sarong” (a garment associated with Muslims). with his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers.” Being a Muslim and having left the faith and claiming to become a Christian make him neither more nor less qualified to become president of the United States. But if he was born and raised a Muslim and is now hiding that fact, this points to a major deceit, a fundamental misrepresentation about himself that has profound implications about his character and his suitability as president. Before his 2008 election he claimed he was a Christian and the after he was elected he admitted that he was a muslim, he committed fraud and makes his election illegal.

      Yes you are right if Malcom X is his real father, if you put his picture next to malcom X you will see a remarkable likeness and their skin tones match far better than that of BOH sr. Yes allah does mean god in Islam but the muslim religion is no where near the compassionate teachings of the bible. Muslims practice Sharia law which demean women in society.Sharia law: There is no Golden Rule; non-Muslims are “dhimumis,” meaning third-class citizens; there are one set of laws for Muslim males and another for non-Muslims and women; there is no freedom of the press, speech, religion or thought; there are no equal rights for women; a non-Muslim cannot bear arms; polygamy is pure Sharia law. Sharia law is already in America, and some of their laws are being implemented with our tax dollars. Hospitals are being sued for not providing Sharia-compliant treatment. Under Shari nothing about Islam may be criticized, unlike our Christian traditions. Sharia wants to get rid of the laws of the U.S. and claim every Muslim needs to only obey the laws of Allah and the Quran. We are in a fight for our lives and way of life. If we don’t wake up pretty soon they will take over. You may want to live the life of a muslim, I don’t.

      Hillary’s campaign did try to out him, but they were not successful, and Mcain posture has nothing to do with obama’s “Lawlessness” … that’s how Congressman Steven King (R-IA) describes Barack Obama’s decision to trash and circumvent the laws that he swore to uphold by dictatorially granting backdoor amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. King specifically stated: “Congress writes the laws and the Executive Branch enforces them. For the president to have his subordinates declare and announce they’re not going to enforce the law is de facto amnesty. It’s essentially a de facto repealing of immigration laws; it’s a lawless decision, and I am very offended by it – and we must take action. Barack Obama has gone too far. He’s crossed the line, too many times, and now is the time for our elected officials in Congress to finally do their Constitutional duty and hold Barack Obama and his administration accountable”.

    When you find yourself arguing with a fool, he’s doing the same thing. The Sam Houstons of this world are there to keep the focus on the little stuff that doesn’t matter. Let’s just tune him out and go back to the top of the page, ok? Obama has gotten the economy back on track, and would probably have done more if Congress didn’t hold the purse strings. He’s got my vote.

  31. Elinor says:

    Sam Houston
    Why don’t you Google Executive Order #13489 for yourself? It is simply an updating of the Federal procedures for the National Archives’ release of Presidential papers and other records, from both the incumbent and previous Presidents, to ensure those marked restricted for national security purposes are reviewed by a variety of people before the Archives acts to either release or withhold the Presidential papers.
    It probably replaced the practice of the previous Administration which had a very broad interpretation of what should be kept secret.

  32. Linda says:

    Elinor, you are correct. It appears that every president since Reagan has signed a similar document. I wonder why nobody questioned these documents until we got a black president?

    • Sam Houston says:

      That is the first document of its kind. He knows he was not vetted to be certified elligible and he wanted it to stay that way by signing that executive order into law with out congress’s approval

  33. Sam Houston says:

    Executive Order #13489 is the first thing obama did to try and hide his birth records. There is no national security purpose for hiding you Birth info that is needed to be vetted as certified elligible to be elected. He was never vetted in Hawaii. It is the responsibility of each states’ party head office to certify that their candidate is Constitutionally eligible to serve in coordination with their state’s laws. Since Obama was not Constitutionally certified to run in the state of Hawaii in 2008, no other Secretary of State, in any state, ever confirmed that Obama was vetted by federal or party authorities in their state prior to being placed on the 2008 Presidential ballot there. In fact, nearly a dozen Secretaries of State, including Hawaii’s, have officially refused to reveal any information about the vetting of Barack Obama in their state because they simply cannot even show that he was actually proven to be eligible there.

  34. Sam Houston says:

    More reasons Obama is probably not and will not be a legal president:
    1. Obama was born a dual citizen of the United Kingdom and the United States, a circumstance the Constitution’s framers considered an iron-clad roadblock to the presidency.
    2. As a boy, Obama was officially registered in school as a Muslim and Indonesian citizen, another barrier to U.S. natural-born citizenship.
    3. The press and blogosphere widely reported that Obama was born at Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu – before deciding he was born across town at Kapi’olani Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Was that because they really do not know where he was born and covering it up.
    4. The Congressional Research Service, a public policy arm of Congress, officially admits no one in the government ever vetted Obama’s constitutional eligibility.
    5. In preparation for the 2012 election, more than a dozen states are considering legislation to force all presidential candidates to prove they are constitutionally qualified before they can be placed on that state’s ballot. If done, that will stop him from running.
    6. Aided by his media co-conspirators, he has conducted one of the most audacious cover-ups ever perpetrated at the highest level of American politics.

      A poem for our President (at least my President) from Kipling

      If you can keep your head when all about you
      Are loosing theirs and blaming it on you;
      If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
      But make allowances for their doubting too;
      If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
      Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
      Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
      .
      .
      Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it

    Wow! “Ten Reasons for an Obama Comeback” certainly seems like the longest string of responses to a LaborLou column yet!

    That would be a good thing, except for the fact that an errant current of birthers has wandered in from the blog-o-shere, successfully diverting an important conversation about President Obama and progressive politics into a swamp of rightists putridity.

    Reading as much of the birther posts as I can bear with their mumbled asides of racist fear-mongering and ever-more-fantastical conspiracy fetishes, I am struck by a thought:

    If rank & file German citizens had the internet in 1931-33,
    their not-quite-veiled anti-Semetic furies and rants would read a lot like the birthers in today’s LaborLou string.

    Let’s refocus the conversation folks. I know it’s tempting to pour it on to our opponents here. But don’t. Ignore them and move these creeps out to the margin-blogs where they belong. Don’t surrender this space of important discussion to frothing fascist provocateurs.
    Leave that turf to Glen Beck & Co.
