    “no one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate.”
    It’s funny because he’s white.

  4. Obama’s family background is as obscure as Romney’s financial info
    but the joke is that we don’t know anything about their puppet masters

  5. Debunked my ass. Obama is as phony as a three dollar bill. 

    • Why would they install a non-citizen as president?  There are plenty of other well-spoken, fake-liberal, half-white, citizen hypocrites they could’ve installed.
