Obama reveals birth certificate, Trump revels in success, nation asks why it should care

Donald Trump is no doubt kicking back a shot of A. H. Hirsch Reserve whiskey after Obama revealed his birth certificate today. According to ABC’s story, Trump effectively creamed himself as he discussed the news with New Hampshire workers.

“He should have done it a long time ago. I am really honored to play such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue.”

Great, Don. We’re all so glad you resolved this issue, all by your little self. I know that I can rest easier tonight knowing that Barack Obama is indeed an American citizen. I couldn’t trust the authenticity of a state governor, a doctor and a medical certificate.

Right on cue, RNC chairman Reince Priebus jumped on the bandwagon to tell Obama off for playing into a distraction. Because the GOP didn’t drive this debate to where it stands now.

“The president ought to spend his time getting serious about repairing our economy. Unfortunately his campaign politics and talk about birth certificates is distracting him from our number one priority – our economy.”

I’d like to ask the GOP why they’ve been plying this issue for the last three years instead of applying themselves to any number of other national issues.

Maybe Obama didn’t want to release his certificate because he knew that it would make republicans everywhere look like huge jackasses when they’re really just trying to do what’s best for the nation: find out where the president was born.

    “This today” lol

    Thats not a dream, it’s a nightmare.

    I think we can only hope for the Trump/Palin dream team in 2012 at this point.

  6. @Betz,

    You make a very valid point, but there is another strategic course. Releasing it now, as Mr. Coyle noted, validates Donald Trump, making it more likely that Trump will be the nominee in 2012. If that comes to pass, Obama is guaranteed re-election. I have no idea which of us is right, but it will be entertaining to watch.

  7. Betz says:

    Politically / strategically, it was in Team O’s advantage to not reveal the birth certificate for exactly the reason that GOP / repubs / birthers that kept pushing this issue would look like the jackasses, and was betting that the majority of people would see them for what they are.

    I think its crazy that this non-issue has drug on this long. Obama should have just come out in that press conference and said “For fuck’s sake, people … Do I really have to do this? Is this REALLY making anything different? Come on …”
