You may have thought that the latest offering from the White House on the birth certificate controversy would have put to rest the questions surrounding the location of our President’s birth.  You’d be mistaken.

The latest thing that’s come up is that the White House circulated a Certificate of Live Birth that was a forgery as truth—up until the point that it was identified as such.

Last week, while Japan was in the middle of a nuclear crisis and many were wondering whether fall out would reach the United States, the “Leader of the Free World” was on ESPN announcing his picks for March Madness.

The rest of the week he spent golfing, and then in Brazil.

Many have made the argument that this activity was/is frivolous, and that he was not living up to his job.

Born in the USA?

Yesterday the U.S. House did something that it has never done in all of its years of existence.  For an hour and a half, Representatives read the entire U.S. Constitution.

One would think it would have been uneventful—but that’s hoping for too much.

The Topic That Will Never Die

Every modern politician that runs for the Presidency has some topic that just will not go away.  Sen. John Kerry had the “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth”.  President George W. Bush carried around the Supreme Court settling whether Florida could do its recounts.  And President Obama has the birth certificate fiasco.

This video is amusing, only in that we’re going to continue to hear things that could break either way until he’s no longer President:

The End of Obama?

Every time there is a Presidential election in the United States, there are many promises that are made, and expectations that are set.  It’s part of what happens to get elected.  And then the politicians walk back their promises the best they can to try to preserve their reputation—seeking someone else to pass the buck to or finding another reason to change their mind.

This is especially obvious with the current President.

Maybe It Was the Teleprompter

I mean, how else can you explain the fact that until this moment President Obama (and formerly Senator Obama) stated that the only way that a Health Care Reform plan should be done is through a wide, bipartisan margin?

Power Once Used Never Goes Back in the Box

When President Obama signaled his approval of using the Senate’s Budget Reconciliation process to push ObamaCare1 through the Senate, he is doing more than going back on statements he made about wanting this to be bipartisan.  He is doing more than misusing something that is in place for budgetary measures.

He is proposing used a tool in a way that hadn’t been done before, and setting a precedent for future generations of Presidents.

Who’s Right on Healthcare?

One of the trouble with numbers is that with the size of the numbers that were being thrown around the other day at the health care debate was that it’s extremely difficult to tell who is using the right numbers and what the truth is.  President Obama uses numbers that back up his argument, and uses formulas to arrive at them.  The Republicans use a set of numbers as well, and both of them claim to be right.

How Hard Would It Be To Meet the President?

Have you ever wondered how hard it would be to meet a famous person?

This past Sunday I was at a church where Dr. Woodrow Kroll of Back to the Bible was the special speaker, and I figured that it would be relatively easy to go up and shake his hand, and it got me thinking about other people.

I wonder how difficult it would be to actually meet the President of the United States.  I mean, apart from being a part of his staff, how easy or difficult is it to actually shake the man’s hand or get close enough to say ‘”Hi.”

What do you think?  Does it just require determination?

Obama and the Party Crashers

Of course the Party Crashers had no business being in the White House without an invitation, and they should have been excused the moment that they were found to be off the guest list…

I’m still not sure how these types of people keep getting in?
