    'Sanctions' sought in eligibility case

    This is what I don't understand. Obama is making a big fuss about TRANSPARENCY.

    So why is he hiring high-powered lawyers to concel his Occidental College record?

    If there is NOTHING WRONG, why not be TRANSPARENT?

    What not show is college record? :confused:

    This issue is actually a good one for the Democrats and Obama is wise to drag it out. It's a case of the white party questionning the citizenship of a black man, demanding that his proof of citizenship (which includes an official, well-vetted copy of his birth certificate, confirmation of the authenticity of that certificate from the Hawaii record department, and a birth announcement in a Honolulu newpaper) be at a higher standard than anyone else. This issue will further alienate blacks and Latinos from the Republican Party. The only proof of being a natural born citizen is one's birth certificate. Obama has produced an official copy. End of of story.

    Good point, this along with the "Barack the magic negro" only alienates minority folks more and more from the Republilcans...

    And don't forget the recent dead chimpanzee cartoon also.

    Question regarding "Barack the magic negro": how do blacks feel alienated from Republicans when Al Sharpton was the person who coined this phrase?

    McCain's citizenship was questioned too. Where and when did Barry produce a "well-vetted copy of his birth certificate, confirmation of the authenticity of that certificate from the Hawaii record department, and a birth announcement in a Honolulu newpaper"? Did I miss it? Didn't the HI governor lock it up? I can produce a Photoshopped image of "my" birth certificate saying I was born in Nova Scotia in 1975. Won't make it true.

    The issue is very simple.

    If there is nothing to hide, why not diclose it?

    He may want to hide his Occidental college records, but I have no idea why. Maybe he got bad grades? Have presidents traditionally released all their college records? Otherwise, he responded to charges that he was not born in the US by releasing an official copy of his birth certificate, one that has been vetted by several organizations, and further verified by the records officials in Hawaii.

    I assume if you wanted to prove your citizenship, you would produce a passport. If for some reason that was not adequate you would produce a birth certificate. If you did not have the original, you would have gotten an official copy. I'm not sure what else Obama can do, especially since those who are demanding more info are not likely to be satisfied with anything. Obama has no particular incentive to respond to the extremists who are demanding more info.

    Let the issue go the Supreme Court. It would be great if they heard the case because it would unnerve millions of legal citizens who parents may have born outside the US. Let the white party question the Americanness of minorities. It's their M.O. and simply provides another piece of evidence that the Republican Party has been taken over by extremist bigots.

    Bad grades?

    But he is THE MESSIAH.

    He is BRILLIANT and ELEGANT.

    And he sent shivers down Chris Matthews legs.

    How could he get bad grades? :confused:

    Why would the white party worry about the minorities?
    The white voters got Obama elected.
    The black vote always goes for the democrat.
    The black vote failed to get Gore & Kerry elected because
    Gore & Kerry could not get enough white votes.
