False.

You're trying to stretch that definition to fit Obama's birth circumstances. Won't work. Your twisted interpretation would make every child born to married parents in which the father was deployed overseas, born to a single mother, which we all know isn't true.

Quote:
"A single parent (or solo parent) is a parent, not living with a spouse or partner, who has most of the day-to-day responsibilities in raising the child or children."

Single parent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

point: Obama
False.

You didn't even read your own citation. Read the whole thing, especially the causes.

Quote:
"a. a person who has a dependent child or dependent children and who is widowed, divorced, or unmarried"

Single mother - definition of Single mother by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

point: IC
Correct.

Quote:
"Single-parent families are families with children under age 18 headed by a parent who is widowed or divorced and not remarried, or by a parent who has never married."

point: IC
Correct.

Quote:
"a person who has a dependent child or dependent children and who is widowed, divorced, or unmarried"
Correct.

Quote:
"A single parent is someone who is bringing up a child or children on their own, because the other parent is not living with them."

Definition of single parent | Collins English Dictionary

point: draw
False.

Obama's mother didn't "bring up" her children on her own. She was married to Obama Sr from 1961 to 1964. Then married to Soetoro from 1965 to 1980. And Obama wasn't even living with his own mother from 1971 onward, so she most definitely couldn't have been single-parenting him from when he was 10 and older.

Quote:
"a parent who raises their children alone, without a partner,"

single parent - definition. American English definition of single parent by Macmillan Dictionary

point: Obama
False.

Same point as directly above.

Give it up IC. You have drilled so deeply beyond your own incompetence on this one that you are now just embarrassing yourself.

No, you just made a fool of yourself.

Let's let Obama himself describe the events surrounding his own birth:
Quote:
"They looked at each other and they decided, 'We know that in the world, as it has been, it might not be possible for us to get together and have a child, but something is stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Ala., because some folks are willing to march across the bridge.' And so they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don't tell me I don't have a claim on Selma, Ala.!"
At 1:49...


Obama Fabricates Reason For His Birth at Selma, AL Speech - YouTube

But WAIT... That's Obama telling YET ANOTHER LIE.

Obama was born in 1961.

The Selma March was in 1965.

Obama falsely claims he was born to a single mom. Of course, as we've just seen, he ALSO falsely claims the Selma march in 1965 inspired his parents to get together and have him in 1961.

Obama lies (and EGREGIOUSLY so, he must think you all are incredibly stupid) to the American public as often as most people change underwear. That's who you really want to stake your own reputation on? Your real identity is known, as I'm sure you know.

This is the way the birther ends. Not with a bang, but a whimper.

Let's leave IC's desperate school of trivial red herring aside and briefly again revisit the actual subject of the thread:

Quote:
Hawaiian Court Certified Document Fraud Expert Who Has Just Affirmed Obama's Birth Certificate Is Forged Is A Democrat
That headline alone contains the following actual lies:

1. There's no such thing as a "court certified" expert.

2. There are no such things as registered Democrats is Hawaii, and no evidence exists that Reed Hayes is a Democrat.

3. Nobody has actually ever seen his report, so any claim that he "affirms" it has been forged are just that; claims.

And of course, since then NBC has proved the PDF to be the ordinary result of a three step workflow.

It really sucks to be a birther.

They are not single mothers.

There are, however, legitimately single (death, divorce) military parents, and when they deploy, they have very real logistical problems making sure their children are placed with someone who can care for their children while they're deployed. You, HD, do those single military parents a GRAVE dishonor and disservice by making light of their situation. You should be ashamed!
