The White House has just released President Barrack Obama's long form birth certificate for public viewing.
Section 1, Article 2 of the constitution sets eligibility requirements for serving as president. The 12th and 14th amendments provide additional clarifications.
So tell me, please... when in your lifetime has a candidate for president been forced --- either by public outcry or some legal justification --- to make public his or her birth certificate?
The answer? Never.
This really pisses me off.
His having to do this is pure bullshit and, worse, a function of pure racism, and there's no two ways about this.
The White House has had to do this only because the president's name is Barrack Hussein Obama, only because the president is an African-American, and only because to those US citizens who didn't vote for the president --- and it's the right of every US citizen to vote or to not vote for whomever they wish --- to those who are unhappy he won, to their way of thinking we now have a darkie in the White House for the first time ever.
Rather than seeing this as a milestone, as one of the strengths of the democracy they claim to love, these assholes use it as a wedge to divide us further.
Look, I apologize for using the clearly pejorative term "darkie"; I know it's offensive. I don't use it in conversation and I don't use it lightly.
But please understand I use it now only to make a point because I'm pissed off: this whole thing is garbage and anyone who has suggested he needed to do this, needed to prove himself to anyone else, should be ashamed.
But they won't be ashamed because the same shamelessness that caused them to open their small-minded traps in the first place will prevent them for demonstrating any shame now.
This really pisses me off, and it should piss off anyone reading this as well.
And now The Donald, Clown Circus Spokesperson, is taking credit for this release by the White House, and Rence Preibus, Chairman of the RNC, is accusing President Obama of playing politics by the timing of the release.
Could there be two cheekier f%&@ers than these guys? Ever hear the expression "you just can't win?" Sheesh.
