Obama’s long form birth certificate has finally been released and you can download it here.
One of the red herrings that has had conspiracy theorists going nuts has been the lack of a full birth certificate being released. Foolish dreams of President Biden and a public spectacle of a resigning president have just gone up in smoke. This whole issue has been ridiculous to me from the beginning, since a local newspaper had his birth recorded at the time.
Hopefully, Donald Trump’s ego and celebrity driven candidacy can go up in smoke as well. He’s no conservative and a constant failure at business, which is precisely what we don’t need. The only thing he’s been good at is promoting himself and trading in wives for younger models as they get older. That’s cold reality there, much like Obama being a natural born citizen.
Why did the White House wait so long to release it? Mainly to avoid other records being released as the President made it clear to the media his family was off limits to them. The suspicion that his grades weren’t great is a valid one given his performance in office so far. But it is his wife’s dealings and family’s dealings in Chicago corruption that are the real issue, in my opinion. It also has been a great distraction from dealing with the real issues with his presidency and split independents from the Republican party.
In the meantime, the “birther” movement has made themselves look like idiots and that has been to the benefit of President Obama for some time. With the latest polls showing an increase in people believing he isn’t a citizen and Trump unofficially launching a candidacy, something had to be done to reign it back in.
By the 2008 election, we entered an era where people can’t tell what the differences between truth, lies, and speculation are. Now demagogues from all facets of the political spectrum are running rampant and things are becoming nuts as a result. Time to stop being so emotional people! Coldly focus on what needs to be done or there will be no hope of fixing anything.
What a sad joke our country is becoming.
