President Obama Releases Long Form Birth Certificate

President Obama released his long form birth certificate today with the hopes of putting an end to this non-issue conspiracy theory distraction stirred up yet again, by Donald Trump and other “birthers.”

Obama’s birth certificate is posted on the White House Web site. It shows that President Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. It is signed by Hawaii state officials and Obama’s mother.

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said:

At a time of great consequence for this country – when we should be debating how we win the future, reduce our deficit, deal with high gas prices, and bring stability to the Middle East, Washington, DC, was once again distracted by a fake issue.  The President’s hope is that with this step, we can move on to debating the bigger issues that matter to the American people and the future of the country.

The transcript of President Obama’s remarks following the release of his long form birth certificate is available here. The Caucus reports:

Mr. Obama said he decided to release the document in an effort to end the “silliness” about his birth that threatened to distract from the serious issues facing the country.

“Over the last two and a half years, I have watched with bemusement,” he said in brief remarks. “I’ve been puzzled by the degree to which this thing just kept on going.”

Mr. Obama said there would be a “segment of people for which, no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest.” But he said that he was “speaking to the vast majority of the American people as well as to the press. We do not have time for this kind of silliness.”

The President is right, “We do not have time for this kind of silliness.” With so many pressing issues right now, this dog and pony “birther” sides show is a distraction from the real problems we face in this country: rising gas prices, jobs, unemployment, a continuing faltering economy, and on an on…

In related news, “The Donald” has taken credit for the release of Obama’s long form birth certificate. Mr. Comb-over really needs to get over himself!

    The Obamas, and the Baratundes, in this country clearly know more about being an American than a narrow-minded, short-sighted racist like Donald Trump could ever hope to comprehend. He’s doing the only thing the Republican Party seems to value anymore – he’s selling his load of unadulterated crap for everything he can get for it. We are exceptional when we behave as the Americans we are supposed to be, Baratunde, and you honor us all by doing so. The world looks at today’s American Republican Party and sees them for what they are – con-artists who are willing to lie to and steal from their fellow Americans for power, control, and frankly, cold hard cash.
    Peace and strength to you, sir, along with my thanks for what you say here today.
