This article is going to be pretty incendiary to all the right-wing, anthropogenic-climate-change deniers. Let's get the popcorn out.

How was the golf course?

For the farce that it is, if anything, I'm jealous of the location. That water looks inviting!

Good place for him to visit - symbolic on so many levels.

Obama leading the way once again. This great man will be sorely missed. In fact, I miss him already.

8 years was more than enough. Many of us will be happy when we can get real change for the country.

“There are countries that now are at risk, and they have to move as a consequence of climate change,” Obama said."

Where will these countries move to?

The Divider-In-Chief strikes again,

"Obama’s decision to expand the monument was the subject of fierce debate within Hawaii, with both sides invoking Native Hawaiian culture to argue why it should or shouldn’t be expanded.

Supporters said the larger monument was needed to protect a place considered sacred by Native Hawaiians by making it off-limits to commercial fishing and recreational activities. But opponents argued the region is heavily dependent on fishing and can’t afford the hit, adding that a federal ban would infringe on the traditions that ancient Hawaiians used to protect natural resources."

" When I grew up, you’d see these turtles all the time,” Obama said. “But you’d never see them beaching like this, basking in the sun.”

Except that he grew up in Indonesia.

Mr. Obama is right about climate change and global warming but what about over population by all the illegals he is letting run the streets and killing innocent Americans in the US?

A: Climate change is a fact of life on Planet Earth.

B: Human contribution is neither negligible nor causative.

C: Obama is grasping at straws.

Well well. Mr Obama warns about the effects of global warming, Like all Socialists he's not the most original thinker outside the box. I think I'll shut the box.

Person who, including entourage plus Air Force One, probably has one of the largest carbon footprints on the planet, and uses it to fly out to the middle of nowhere to the government's private tropical paradise, to lecture the rest of us on climate.

Great photos.

If I'd lived in Hawaii from birth to 6 years old, and then from 10 to 18 years old, I'd say I grew up there without fear of contradiction.

Yeah, but he spent four years in Indonesia. And that fact is easier to smear than the one about how he spent 14 of 18 years living in Hawaii.

Four years in Indonesia as Barry Soetoro, an Indonesian citizen with no record of changing his name nor nationality back after supposedly returning about age 10.

That aside, the man with the biggest carbon footprint in the world preaching to the peonage from his ivory tower? Or, was that Sweet Home Chicago? Which hometown? Divider-In-Chief.

Wow, how does it feel to be beating the dust that is the decayed remains of a horse that has been dead for four years? Does it feel better or worse than losing any credibility for still spouting birther BS?

You don't have to change your nationality "back", as you put it, if 1) you are a dual citizen, which means you always were and still are American or 2) if you have always been an American citizen and never an Indonesian citizen

So far all you're doing is waffling. So, to offer some waffle in return, I suggest that either 1 or 2 above applies to Obama, and that you've looked into his citizenship, residence, and name status in the early 1970s no more carefully than I have, in other words, barely at all.

One's citizenship doesn't change just by changing places of residence, just like one doesn't become a Japanese citizen just by moving to Japan. Usually there's a long process, including waiting some number of years before one can even apply for citizenship.
