Trump pushed the issue because Obama wouldn't resolve it. When you seal your own birth records (who does that?) and fail to correct literature advertising you as a Kenyan-born speaker, then you have no right to whine when people question your place of birth.
Some still question the legitimacy of the records Obama finally produced. I've never been deeply interested in the issue, or followed it closely. But I stand behind the birthers in one regard: It was President Obama himself—not them—who kept this whole issue alive. Of that there is no doubt, since only he—not them—could provide the documents to end the questioning.
I applaud Trump for pushing Obama to reveal more records, and I leave it to the experts to determine the legitimacy of those records. Well done, Donald.
To be honest, when someone ascends to the highest levels like our President, I find it unbelievable that he can seal so many portions of his past from view. Birth records? College papers? Forget his nation of origin; I’m wondering if the guy was constructed in a lab.
And finally, to the big topic: Money. Thanks to Trump and his big-spending friends, Mitt Romney will provide the GOP with something no other potential candidate could—a campaign that is financially competitive with Obama's money machine.
Rest assured, THIS is the biggest headache Barack Obama has received from Donald Trump—but don’t expect the media to focus on that part of the story. They’re too busy trying to resuscitate one of the only issues left where Obama still finds a sympathetic audience in the American public. “Pay no attention to Romney’s gathering momentum! Let’s talk birthers!”
Uh huh. Good luck with that.
