Look Phoenix, you have a choice. You can either lock yourself up in a cave with Gungasnake waiting for African socialists to invade, or you can come out with the rest of us.
We have a democracy. People run and present their policies and their stories. Then we vote and choose one of them to be our president. The system works pretty well in spite of the fact that sometimes I am not happy with the result. That's the way America works. And yes, I really hope that President Obama wins a second term, but either way our system of democracy works and we will in fact be fine no matter who wins.
Barack Obama became president the same way anyone else has become president. In office he has given speeches, signed bills, made executive orders, commanded military strikes just as every president has before him.
These attacks about President Obama's family past are way out of line. Of course you and Gungasnake are free to make them. It is a free country. But they are way out of line for American democracy.
Ironically President Obama's opponent has an equally interesting family history. No one is writing books attacking Romney for his families past.
I think that is a good thing.
