Up for Debate: Obama wraps DNC

Thursday, September 6, 2012 at 11:50pm

What's your reaction to President Barack Obama's nomination acceptance speech at the DNC? How did it compare to Mitt Romney's speech last week? How did it compare to President Bill Clinton's speech Wednesday?

You got to remember that yogi is a liar and a coward. Brave on the key board, but a puddle of urine in person.

We know his name...Barack Hussein Obama. Like "Mitt" Romney, actually, legally Willard, and Newton McPherson, aka, Gingrich, people change their names in America. Why are you KKK refugees singling out Obama?
It's so obvious it's painful to listen to "your truth".
You should know, Marilyn Monroe's name isn't really that. Tony Curtis wasn't really that.
Obama studied abroad in Indonesia. That does not mean he gave up his US citizenship any more than Romney who went to Paris to engage people for the Mormon church gave up his.
Obama's father was a African citizen born in Kenya.
Romney's father was born in Mexico, as was his father.
That makes them Mexicans, no more, no less, than Obama's a Kenyan.

You need to go back to school, dargent7. No, Romney's father and grandfather were not Mexicans. Mitt Romney was born in the USA to American parents. He is a natural born citizen. His father was born in Mexico to American parents. His grandparents moved to Mexico and retained their American citizenship.

Mitt's father doesn't have to be a natural born citizen to pass that status down to him, only an American citizen. Go back to school, dargent7.

As you posted, Obama's [father] was born in Kenya. So if Obama's father was born in Kenya, why is Barry to be considered a natural born citizen when you claim Mitt is not a natural born citizen because his father was a born in Mexico, even though he was also born in the US as was Obama (supposedly)?

As a Kenyan, Obama's father was a British subject. If he fathered Barry in Hawaii, Barry would also be a British subject under his father's name. As a British subject, his father could not pass the natural born status down to him because he was not a US citizen. The best Barry could have gotten would have been dual-citizenship through his mother. Just being born in the USA doesn't give you natural born status. If it did, how can you claim Mitt Romney isn't qualified?

If Barack was born in Kenya as he advertised for 16 years, his mother was too young to pass her American citizenship down to him and he would be a British subject after his father.

Actors use screen names, dargetn7. Many of their names are hard to pronounce for some, but I don't recall any of them changing their name officially. Perhaps some did, I don't know.

But you don't know if Barack Hussein Obama is Barry's legal name or not. If you read his autobiography, you should know his name was changed to Barry Soetoro when he was adopted by his stepfather. Did he ever change his name back to Barack Obama? If he did, why didn't he let everyone know it when he did it?

And by the way, Barry was Barack's nickname as an Obaman. When his stepfather adopted him he gave that as his official name.

Say what you wish, and think what you wish, but facts are facts, dargent7. If Barry is in that office legally you could bet your a$$ he would have let us know it when he started his first campaign.

It took yogi 3hrs to looking through the dictionary to find enough words to post this. LOL

Translation; Mitt ain’t no darkie.

By: yogiman on 9/8/12 at 2:04

What a brilliant ignorant man you show yourself to be, dumba$$. You're saying it's okay for Barack Obama (if that's his name) to be president because he's a darkie, but it isn't okay for Mitt Romney to be president because he's whitey.

When did race get into the requirements for president of the US, dumba$$? Did I get the wrong lessons? I was taught you had to be a natural born citizen at least 35 years of age and lived in the USA 14 years.

When did they amend the Constitution specifying you had to be a "darkie" to become President?

So since Obama is a "darkie" and that makes him eligible for that office, but Romney isn't eligible because he's a "whitey", does that mean all presidents in the future must be "darkies"?

yogi - Only a dumbarse like you would interpret that from Nemo's comment.

A humorous story you Obama admirers should enjoy.

"When Obama died, George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates. He slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you to destroy the Nation I helped conceive."

"Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties but you failed."

"James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin and said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense."

"Thomas Jefferson was next, beat Obama with a long cane and snarled,"It was evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence."

"The beatings and thrashings continued as James Monroe and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the radical, socialist, leader.

"As Obama lay bleeding and in pain, an Angel appeared. Obama wept and said,"This is not what you promised me."

"The Angel replied, "I told you there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said? You really need to listen when someone is trying to tell you something."

Old fool calls me a racist , then tells a racist joke. Just brilliantly display of yogis lack of courage.

By: yogiman on 9/8/12 at 4:37

You are a racist, dumba$$. You prove it more every time you open you mouth. You've commented about voting for Barack Obama, a man who would not even give his legal name. The only logical reason you could have for voting for him when you didn't even know his legal name was his race.

Did you know he was going to put this nation so much deeper in debt and lowered this nation's credit rating to it's lowest rating in its history when you voted for him?

Didn't think so. Being the first black President was all that was necessary for you, so yes, you are a racist.

yogi - Did you know he was going to put this nation so much deeper in debt and lowered this nation's credit rating to it's lowest rating in its history when you voted for him?

=============================================
PROVE IT yogi! You have never proved anything in your life, can't give a reference on anything you post, to back you up & post nothing but junk you conjure up in your enpty head. Go ask your neighbor (Jefferson) or anybody else that knows you what they think of you.

By: yogiman on 9/8/12 at 7:03

No bfra, I didn't know he was going to put this nation deeper into debt and lower it's credit rating. But then, he didn't tell this nation what he was doing because he didn't want us to know.

You're so much smarter than I bfra, you prove me wrong. Apparently you aren't listening to the news much in your childhood.

Tell me, name one argument you have thrown at me and offered proof you was right. You can't, because you haven't.

You have accused me of being wrong when I offered sound evidence on his eligibility but you have never offered proof he is legally eligible. Why? Because you don't you have any.

You're a googleing boy, ask google.

dumba$$,

If you had a brain you would probably take it out and play with it also for the excitement.

By: Captain Nemo on 9/9/12 at 1:01

yogi you are a liar and a coward.

By: yogiman on 9/9/12 at 1:38

Okay dumba$$, I'll confess.

You scare the hell out of me and I'm scared to death of you. I'm afraid I might be shocked to death if I saw what an ugly idiot you're proving yourself to be.

The fear of the shock might cause a heart attack... or possibly a stroke and I'm not gonna take that chance, so just go look in the mirror and blink fast so you don't see yourself too good. You might shock yourself to death, too.

yogi you are a liar and a coward, you have no heart or brains.

Some where in the madness he calls a brain, this make sense. LOL

After watching both conventions: Romney is a lightweight with very little info that is factual.. What he does say is not worth the paper that it is writen on. On the other hand, I was impressed with our President. He did know what he was talking about. He did not stand up there was a sissy grin on his face like Romney.

By: yogiman on 9/9/12 at 7:45

I'll bet you're a dumbocrap, pswindle. You comment Romney is lightweight on factual information. Do you think your man Barry knows all of the facts? If he does, why has he cost us so much he's lowered our credit rating and put us deeper in debt the children of future generations may never be able to pay up.

Why is the unemployment rate so much higher now than it was when he went in office?
