  • I've never heard he hasn't provided a birth cert. I knew about the school in Indonesia, but i can't remember how it was disputed.

  • *sigh* stuff like this is really getting old. this webpage is like a compilation of all the bad and incorrect emails about obama floating around.. it's insane!
    birth certificate:
    misquotes from his book(s):
    all things related to obama and his 'muslim faith':
    this should clear up some of the other claims:

  • The birth certificate controversy and the muslim controversy are two of the very MINOR problems with this candidate. It is his voting record, his affiliations, and his political associations that people need to take a hard look at. Not these piddly little things like birth certificates and what he attended with his dad.  His affiliations, associations, and voting record can not be explained away--they are documented facts.

  • Just a small article on the birth certificate problem:-) It still is up in the air!!!

  • If you take the time to read the whole article--you will find direct quotes, votes, dates, and voting records. This is about choosing the next President who will affect this country for at least the next two generations---at the least because of what he will to do the Court System starting with the Supreme Court. I am not a McCain supporter--but I feel he is the only viable choice to defeat Obama. I don't think Obama would have stood a chance against most of the other Republican contenders, but thanks hugely to the media--we got McCain!

  • i think if you really need some in depth information about obama you should do your own research, not rely on an article that has several half-truths and or lies.

  • i'd also like to add that in the same report cited in that article(the one about obama being the most liberal senator,) that john mccain wasn't even ranked because he hadn't voted enough times!

    Per National Journal, "He missed more than half of the votes in both the economic and foreign-policy categories. On social issues, which include immigration, McCain received a conservative score of 59."

  • That doesn't disprove the fact he is one of the most liberal senators...... Or his political associations and affiliations....... I am not trying to put forth McCain as the greatest senator--like I said, I really don't care for him---but I see Obama as fundamentally socialistic--that is the problem. And his background shows that--with his associations, and affiliations---read about Saul Alinsky---one can't deny his training is radical and leftist.

  • another I don't have enough reasons to convince you to vote for my candidate of choice so let me slam the other with mud and hoepfully you will be stupid enough to change your vote post. Why is it everyday some republican is in here trying to change my mind. Not going to work. RESPECT MY CHOICE. and ronie that caim that you don't support mccain.. BULL. everyday you come in here and spill your hate about Obama.
