    Donald Trump says he'll donate $5 million to the charity of Obama's choice if Obama will just release his college transcripts and passport applications. Seems like an easy $5mill to me. Anyone think Obama will do it?

      Donal Trump is currently broke, he do not have 5million to settle his divorces let alone give it to the president for releasing records.

      not on your life. There is good reason obama is hiding all of this. Even the ignorant leftwingers would have a hard time voting for him...we all know this.

        BRILLIANTLY EXPLAINED
        This rather brilliantly cuts thru all the political doublespeak we get.
        It puts it into a much better perspective.

        Lesson # 1:

        * U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
        * Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
        * New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
        * National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
        * Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

        Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:

        * Annual family income: $21,700
        * Money the family spent: $38,200
        * New debt on the credit card: $16,500
        * Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
        * Total budget cuts so far: $3.85

        Got It ?????

        OK, now Lesson # 2: Here's another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:

        Let's say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood....and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.

        What do you think you should do ......
        Raise the ceilings, or pump out the Sewage?
        Your choice is coming November 6, 2012.

        They ask him for his birth records and they didn't believe they are real and now they are asking for more and if they produce them they would say they aren't real so. He just can't win.

    Why wouldn't Obama release his records so that charities can benefit UNLESS he's hiding something.

    If Obama doesnt' release the records he's OBVIOUSLY hiding something big then just as has been expected.

      Rommey doesn't have anything to hide also. LOL Again, if the President did relesase the recordes some people would say they aren't real.

    Obama, Are you hiding something (Obviously is) or do you not like giving free money to charities.

    obama is not a giver...he is a taker like all good Marxists. I loved it when Romney said "Mr President, the govt should never invest in/buy businesses, it's bad for business and the markets". Obama tried to cut him off and I thought he would faint. This illustrates the difference between free commerce and markets and marxism...and guess what, everywhere in our markets where govt has projected infulence we have a disaster...everywhere.

    California Conservative, I know how you feel. I live in Massachusetts. What I don't get is that I look around me and see all these Obama signs and wonder... How and Why? What did Obama succeed in doing besides Bin Laden?
