President Obama released his birth certificate and gave a statement on it, so that’s all we’ll be talking about today.
This seemed to be an issue that just fell into his lap to make people opposed to him look like cranks, but as Obama became more unpopular, more people were willing to believe that he wasn’t born in America. It certainly is an easy explanation for his disconnect from the American people — he’s not even one of them! Now the issue is actually hurting Obama, so he puts it to a rest.
Still, some birthers claimed this wasn’t about whether he was born in Hawaii but whether he’s a “natural born citizen” — whatever that legally means. But I doubt many people will care much anymore. The big money will now be in insinuating he’s secretly a Muslim. Ever seen pictures of Obama eating bacon? I haven’t. Only explanation for that: He’s a devout Muslim terrorist!
