Birther Issue Settled, President Releases Birth Certificate

Birther Issue Settled, President Releases Birth Certificate

    To satisfy the birthers, and put an end to the ridiculous, President Obama released his long form birth certificate today. The birthers have been an issue since the beginning of Obma’s general election campaign for the presidency. Many people still do not believe the president was born in the United States and therefore, not eligible for the presidency.

    In a surprising announcement, the president allowed the release of his long form birth certificate to finally put to rest the issue of his birth. According to MSNBC, "White House press secretary Jay Carney handed out copies of the president’s "long form" birth certificate Wednesday morning, showing that he was born in Hawaii. Previously, only the president’s short form certificate became available, something that has spurred theories that Obama was not born in the United States."

    Donald Trump, the blowhard real estate broker, took credit for the release of the birth certificate. Trump said, "I’ve accomplished something nobody else has accomplished. I want to look at it but I hope it’s true."

    The state of Hawaii does not normally release the long form birth certificate, even to the named person. The president asked the white house counsel to appeal to the state to have the certificate released. Hawaii granted the request because "of the tremendous volume of requests they had been getting."

    Hopefully this will put an end to the birther issue, but it is unlikely. People will continue to believe whatever they want to. Mainstream Republicans allowed their fringe members to fan the flames and instead of taking a stance and saying no, they allowed it to continue. They feared taking a stand against their own and telling them this is a distraction. If the GOP cannot stand up to the Tea Party on this issue, they will not stand up to them on any issue.
