Oh... sorry I missed this. How droll....

As we have established, you yourself stumbled upon the proof that West Point allows cadets to matriculate who are 17 years and one week old. I was six months older than that, and yes that would have graduated me at 21 years of age and sent me to my first assignment (the nuke one) while still 21.

With that astounding mystery solved... one can only wonder what in my posts have inspired the frothing level of analysis you seem to believe that I deserve. I must have really shaken you up to deserve it. I'm pretty happy with that, actually. My arguments must be strong ones.

"You claim to have been born on December 29, 1956, Were you 4 years old when you were sent off to kindergarten? Did you enter the 1st grade at 5?"

Yes to both.

"I posted the age requirements to apply for West Point and have never claimed that you could not have graduated when you said you did. I am just curious why you have tried to argue so hard you were the average age of a West Point graduate and have changed your story several times. You do a lot of wiggling in your posts EnderWiggins."

Okay... okay... you have stoned me to death with popcorn, beaten me into submission with al dente fettuccine. You have wrung from me the horrible admission that I was one of the younger guys in my class. What evil and nefarious purpose would have caused me to build this vast conspiracy of subterfuge to make myself look completely ordinary?

Ahhh, I must have forgotten. Humility is (among Birthers) is a sure sign of evil intent.

My class graduated some 953 people (depending on whether you count the guys that graduated a few months later for academic reasons). Exactly 243 of us were younger than 22, so while younger than most I was still hardly exceptional. And if the average age actually was closer to 22 than 21... that is hardly a great distinction given the jobs of great responsibility all these men went on to immediately perform.

You win you win. The average age of my graduating class was closer to 18 than to 17.

Therefore, Obama is not a natural born citizen. [end sarcasm]

EnderWiggins, I already admitted to others in the thread that I may have been barking up the wrong tree on your age. The thing that is curious to me however is that you have now changed your tune on this four different times. To me that seems a little odd. Until others came forward here... you did not appear to be willing to admit that you started kindergarten at age 4. There are currently no states which allow a child who will not turn 5 until December 29 to enter kindergarten.

Of course this is not nearly as odd as your repeated claims that the FBI grants almost all military security clearances and numerous other statements you have made which are easily disproved as well. If I could give a little advice to someone who argues like a teenager and has no real allegiance to the truth... if you stuck a little closer to the Obama talking points and didn't allow others to draw you off on a tangent you would be more convincing.

I for one appreciate having a few individuals such as yourself on the forum. Without you and your associates many of these threads would get a few looks and a couple dozen comments and then be forgotten. With your assistance we are keeping the interest in these eligibility threads going for weeks. So thank you.

You still haven't made any attempt to give a valid reason why the person occupying the most powerful position in the world should not be required to provide the verifiable documentation that so far Obama has refused to. Basically all you have said thus far is that he shouldn't have to because he might be able to get away with it, and also that other people might have been able to get away with it. I can remember similar arguments with our children when they were teenagers. They didn't fly even for the trivial issues that teenagers place so much importance in. In this case we are talking about a man who has within his powers to destroy our country and the rest of the world. I know what to expect from you... several paragraphs of pastes from English common law from several hundred years ago and some more blather about them not having birth certificates way back when.

“The issue over Obama’s birth certificate is not about President Obama’s citizenship. It is about his honesty and his promise to be the most transparent president ever. Releasing his birth certificate and other personal records that presidents have traditionally released to the public would go a long way toward bolstering those claims.”
