Just remember that Casperson is well out of his element with everything but protecting his contributors and ensuring the rest of us get the short end of the stick.

Really? All of these clowns, ALL, used "Bringing us jobs" as their campaign platform. 3-6 month jobs building roads in Marquette County. Didn't happen. I haven't read about one single attempt to bring new industries here, not one. The mill's cutting back since people aren't buying newspapers or magazines because they're reading online or not reading at all. No attempts at all to bring good paying manufacturing jobs here. And rehashing this crap will help us? OK. They only make sense when they're trying to get elected. After the election it's business as usual. Screw the voters. If anyone getting a degree around here wants a good job, they have to leave. Leave Michigan. Great results, politicians!

Casperson said nothing wrong and should not feel a need to defend his words.

He was asked a question and he answered it. He never made a claim about Obama's citizenship.

Casperson told the truth. The media dismissed the entire thing early and allowed the conspiracy theorists to grow a stroy about it. Then, later the info was released.

It was a planned deal by the Libs to make the doubters look like more of a fool than they actually were. Good ploy really. It worked.

The Dems always have an angle to pit one group against another. The scheme to tear the country apart along political lines. It works and the people lose.

Casperson talks as though the media was all over anything bush did. Really? Like his military sevice? His cocaine use? Or how about the pack of lies he told that got us into Iraq? The old bulls**t "liberal media" bias excuse is getting old. Especially since the coporate owned media is nothing more than government lapdogs regardless of what party is in power.

Mr Casperson, let me help you here. The only answer to this question is "This matter has been investigated for years and the President has proven that he was born in the USA and is a citizen as much as anyone. We should keep our focus on issues that matter, in particular issues that relate to the State of Michigan. This issue is a distraction. We have bigger problems to deal with." The right just cant seem to get over that Obama has been elected TWICE by large margins by the voters of this nation. He IS the commander in chief. But I'm sure that comments like "he's not a real American" will continue, driving mainstream voters further away from the GOP.

The correct response, was, that I don't care where he was born, what upsets me is where he currently lives!

If you can't hear me, you must be on a Obama Free Phone. Obama's Father and Mother both had Hatered for this country and you can read all about it in Obama's own words. Obamas father was from Kenya and according to Kenya, NO MATTER WHERE YOUR OFF SPRINGS ARE BORN, THEY ARE KENYA! Do a little research and look it up! Not to mention the fact his drunkerd Daddy was still married, with kids back in Kenya when he married his mother! And anybody and everybody knew, back in that era, black and whites to marry was not very acceptable! Look into the LOVE story. Love is their last name.
