CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) The mayor of Champaign is drawing criticism for saying he doubts President Barack Obama was born in the United States.
Mayor Jerry Schweighart's videotaped comments were posted online and led to criticism at a City Council meeting Tuesday from some black residents. They suggested Schweighart's doubts are based on the president's race.

How could he not be born in the U.S.? You mean somebody put that birth announcement in the paper back in 1961 because they were plotting to run the infant Obama as President someday? It’s ridiculous.
Then maybe you could tell me what hospital he was born at and who the doctor that brought the first black US president into the world is?
How dare he question Dear Reader.
Is it racist to ask about all his sealed life records?
We are paying your way, there barry, we deserve to know what your past is.
That’s a strawman argument.
Show the authentic document, and it put it to rest, one way or the other.
Well, the ‘birth announcement’ was found on Microfiche...which is of course, is absolutely, positively, triple dawg dare, tamper proof, so there ya go...2 mil to fight releasing the document(s) when its been ‘out there’ all along.
Kudos to the Mayor. Stay strong Mr. Schweighert...stay strong.
Expressing legitimate doubts based on lack of substantive evidence is now ALSO under the ever-expanding definition of “racist”.
Soon, such things as a flat, flour based shell topped with olive oil and tomato sauce, cheeses and a variety of vegetables and/or meats and then cooked in a high heat oven, will be considered “racist”.
Not to mention the racism inherent in a vulcanized, rubber core, surrounded by tightly wound string, formed into a spherical, hard, horsehide encased shell, held together with red stitching....
How about we just except them as true and valid. They all indicate Jr is Not a Natural Born Citizen.
OK, here’s hoping Obama does show it.
As far as the racism charges go, it was entirely predictable that any criticism of this President or this Administration would be attributed to racism.
The entire point of any BC discussion boils down to his failure to allow the original BC to be made public. Accept no substitutes.
Um you’re a moron. The announcement could have been put in the paper to give a foreign born child a better shot at passing as citizen to have a better life. Think maybe that happens today with Mexican’s that cross the border? Anyways, a newspaper article is not a birth certificate. He’s hiding his. Why?
“They suggested Schweighart’s doubts are based on the president’s race.”
No, no, no. It’s his white half that’s a filthy lying traitor, bent on the destruction of our country.
His black half is beautiful, honest, brilliant and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
Any one who registered their child in Hawaii(1961) would have had their “birth announcement “ placed in the newspapers by the Hawaiian records department. This is not proof that he was born in Hawaii. No proof was required in 1961 to register a child with the records department in 1961. No hospital in Hawaii has a record of obama being born there. Their is overwhelming evidence that obama was born in Mombassa , Kenya and this is supported not only by family members but also a number of high ranking kenyan goverment officals.
Hypocritical, shallow, bigoted, white hating, self-loathing, creepy racists are what they all are.
and, they are the "Birthers" because they suspect Obama is hiding something and they want to protect him.
