    This was a WND story from the start and has remained a WND/Donald Trump story. It never made sense that he was born in Kenya. No offense to Kenya, but what mother would want to have their child in Kenya when she can go home to her parents in Hawaii.

    So what do I think of this story now? Who the freak knows? Rumors are floating that Frank Marshall Davis is his real biological father. I don't care who his biological father was.

    I would however, like to take a look at his college transcripts. I'm not even concerned about his grades. I want to know his "course selection." I want to see how many marxist history and theory classes he took. I want to see how many courses he took that end in "studies". I want to see which sociology classes he took. Conversely I'm also curious if President Obama has ever set foot in an economics class.

    I would hope his course selection was diverse and included everything you mentioned. Since when are Americans afraid of education? We used to pride ourselves on it and we used to demand our leaders be well educated. Now we just seem to want simpletons who have business degrees.

    I'd like to see his entrance application.

    Any way you look at it, there's so much about this administration that's hinkey. I didn't trust Obama before he was elected and I trust him less now.

    And I'd like to see how he financed those degrees. There are all kinds of rumors out there, but nothing substantial. Even his campaign team from '08 wouldn't elaborate -- they actually quoted from his book.

    They say that if someone believes their delusions enough, the delusions become their reality. Or to put it more simply: if one truly believes their own lies, their lies become truth to them.

    Arpaio exists for the same reason that Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, etc (and yes, Maddow, Matthews, etc. Forgive me, I don't know many MSNBC hosts) exist: Ratings. Pure and simple. Ratings = money and influence, and therefore power. And since publicity creates, boosts and influences ratings, Arpaio is merely a ratings whore.

    To quote Sam Waterston in 'The Newsroom': "News organizations influence the national conversation."
    And they do this even more effectively when they have pundits, who aren't technically pundits, feed them talking points, B-roll and quotes (though in FOX and MSNBCs cases, more like 'excerpts.').

    What are you talking about? Arpaio isn't a member of the media. He's the Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona. I'll grant you he loves the spotlight, but he doesn't make any money from TV ratings.

    I'll turn it around on you: If you refuse to look at evidence that suggests the birth certificate might be fake, aren't you the one with the dearly held delusion?

    I think you missed the whole point...I stated that he's around for the same reasons as the aforementioned talking heads, but that doesn't mean he's around for TV specifically.

    As for birtherism, yes, I've looked at both sides of the argument. I've watched both FOX and MSNBC's views, along with Bill Maher's, CNN's, even a small clip on the BBC and CBC. I've weighed both arguments, heard conflicting and opposing views, and I've made my decision.

    Also, whether or not I have a delusion is irrelevant. Hypocrisy does not mean fallacy.

    what i'd like to know is why some hinkyh little sheriff from some hinky little county in a nasty assed state filled with nothing but sand, cactus and sex rocks is doing 'investigating' the president of the united states. he can't even run his own little sheriffs dept. correctly, or treat the prisoners for whom he is responsible with common decency.

    he's a nobody.

    Ya know, if these people can cloud an issue to allow someone to become presiden of the United States, if they can muddy the waters so we can never be sure of what the truth of a situation of this magnitude is THEN how else are they screwing over the average people of the country/world?

    "What do I think", you ask? Allow me to enlighten you: I think that that the selection of topics provided here today were published with the intent of enticing certain "right-leaning" individuals to go a bit overboard with their comments, if you will. I've seen quite a few accounts "suspended" today, folks...maybe they've been told that they need to clear out some of the undesirables before they can truly become a cornerstone in the campaign of Great Leader---er, I mean our great leader...

    There are days when the stories are more favorable to the right to get the left fired up...the difference in my opinion is when the right get fired up their hatred of obama, and everything those liberals do takes over and they get nasty quick, the left gets fired up too but doesn't quite have the same hateful tones.

    This is such a distraction from the real issues this election. Now lets get back to Romney's tax returns and shoe color preference.

    Now the ppl are starting to open their eyes at who's really raping the system. Money here and money there. Find the accounts and confiscate all of it! That's no different than the actions of a drug dealer!

    I hope GOP digs into this and figures this out once and for all. I would like to c his education records too. I'm wondering if all this birth certificate crap isn't just him cheating the system years ago to get into college easier, never thinking he would b running for president one day

    Republicans are so losers that they still looking to find proves so Obama cant be a president candidate. Hello!!!!! HE'S already your PRESIDENT since 4 years ago, and will be for another 4 years. Hahahaha

    The one thing that is true and what ever the real truth is, his birth was from a US born Citizen.

    I wish all the people who hate Obama just say they simply hate him because he is part black. Let's be honest. He simply inherited this mess our country is in. Every time he put something on the table, the GOP shoot it down. Even if it is something they would vote for. I never seen a President get so much disrespect. I was in Oklahoma at the time he was elected, and The Newspaper had the nerves to have John McCain's picture on the front page. Bush is a great guy but he is the reason we are in this mess

    The Republican party, John McCain, Mitt Romney all recognize and believe that Obama is not only a legal citizen, but that he is also a Christian.
    Those few who continue to spew this rhetoric are simply lost and left behind.

    I don't know if obysmal was born in America or not. He certainly doesn't display any American tendencies so I'm inclined to believe he was not.

    It is a fake... But his Mother was a US Citizen and makes him a natural born citizen if he was born in Russia... But providing a Fake Document is a "High Crime or Misdemeanor" ...

    Personally I think if the Sheriff want to get his name in the news he should try doing police work. I don't remember anyone asking for his opinion to start with, and if he has time to waste looking into Obama's birth certificate then he is not doing what he should be doing. Get a new Sheriff there folks.

    What a joke. There are so many crooked Republicans on the CIA and everywhere else in the government that if there was any possible way to prove that Obama was not a citizen, it would have been done long ago....Hatred does not create truth!!!
