"Obviously"? In whose mind? What could possibly be "racist" about it? Obama has a brother living in Kenya, his father was Kenyan, and he has a Kenyan grandmoter, whom I believe still lives in Kenya. He also went to an exclusive Muslim school in Kenya as a young boy. Is any mention of Obama's background and life history to be construed as "racism"? Why?

It reminds me of Ann Coulter saying "Romney has only changed on one position in his entire life..." despite the mountains of video evidence to the contrary. You people think that if you deny something over and over again that it somehow becomes less true.
"Mountains of video evidence"? Are we discussing Obama or Romney?

if you insist on taking figurative statements literally that's your choice, just be consistent.
"Figurative?" That was a definitive statement.

I was just getting ready to post the same thing. Why is it that people who think Obama is a Kenyan don't even know basic facts about him?

More than a few people share this view.

But nice try.
I am a birther as well but the republicans picked a real lousy candidate in Willard...they needed someone completely different from Obama and they didn't do that...I am 100% with ya on the birther stuff but we disagree on Willard.
