    This birther nonsense, disrespecting both the man Obama and the Office of the President of the United States only validates the greater argument that this nation not only has not gotten past the issues of race, education and income but reveals that we are a country full of petty, vicious and evil people that hide behind the masks of propriety, law and Christianity.

    No one in media has ever asked or investigated any other President's "American Citizenship' after producing a valid legal birth certificate. How long will the people kneel before race haters who dress up as righteous citizens or respected media?

    Look, I'm a conservative, and I think the whole birther thing is just ridiculous, if not before then certainly now.

    If some of you are racist and wanted to keep a black or a muslim off the ballot, you did what you could and it failed.

    At this point, even if it were proven that he is the son of Osama Bin Laden and was born in Mecca, it would take a supreme court decision and an act of congress to get him out of office, and there is virtually no chance that can be accomplished in the 18 months left before the next election. And do any of you think Joe Biden would be a better president? He might actually stand a chance of winning in 2012 if placed in that position.

    Move on to real issues and stop wasting time and energy on birth certificates.

    Donald Trump should not be proud of himself! He should be ahamed! President Obama's release of his long birth certificate undoubtedly demonstrates that Donald Trump does not hesitate relying on gossip, and can lead American citizens into deadend paths, false opinions, and this is further substantiated by his false statement concerning a CNN pole (that did not exist).
    We have known for years that he is sexist, narcissistic, unreliable, and today we learned that he is an unconditional racist on top of it all.
    Any American citizen who will still consider voting for him after today should have his head examined. Fast!
    If he ever should be elected president, my condolences to the United States : I am convinced that he will complete the decline of the American Empire, and a lot of Americans will flee the U.S. and become refugees in other countries on this planet...

    Why would his mother give birth in Africa when her husband was already married and had kids there? Okay, allowed in Africa. But then, why would she get on a flight for 22 hours, endure more swelling for her swollen ankles, discomfort with safety belts, extra visits to small lavatories, to deliver a baby in a third world country? Only a man would trump that theory up.

    I strongly think this birth certificate nonsense is all about racism coming from some ultra-right-wing Republicans or egotistical blowhards like Donald Trump or whacko teapartyers. How sweet those pictures are of our first Black president in Hawaii when he was a baby!

    I am a white 68-year-old woman in SunCity, AZ, and don't ask me for my birth certificate to prove it.

    I hope this will shut up all of the birthers, I don't believe it will. The proof was provided before and that wasn't good enough. Now they are picking at various boxes on the document provided, when was a white President put through this scrutiny? This to me is a race issue and the bigots will continue to pick at President Obama which is a disgrace to this great country.

    We certainly don't have time for this silliness-don't you realize that we have a child who painted a flag on his face? I realize this important and critical patriotic issue is getting the air time it deserves, but at the end of the day I suggest we give the boy his well-deserved reality show and move on, whatever the cost...
