Obama releases birth form, decries 'silliness'

WASHINGTON (AP) �  Responding to critics' relentless claims, President Barack Obama on Wednesday produced a detailed Hawaii birth certificate in an extraordinary attempt to bury the issue of where he was born and confirm his legitimacy to hold office. He declared, "We do not have time for this kind of silliness."

(ap) - Personally, I Think Obama Shot his Wad WAY too Early... He should've kept this "Silliness" going until next Summer as to gather as MANY on the Right as Possible behind Trump, and then Dump the Cert... Politically it made more Sense to wait... Concerns now?... Why would he Dump it now? Why did a guy go to Jail for not Serving in the Military over this Cert, if Obama was going to Release it at some Tactical Point like now?... What's the Tactical Advantage NOW?... That's my Question. Birthers are the same Assholes (And I Love some of you) like those on the Left that Insisted that Bush was AWOL and that 9/11 was an inside Job... Tools, each and every one. But why did Barry Choose now to Release this? If he's Reacting to Trump, then it's a Fail for Barry and Win for Trump. What are we not hearing about in the "News" because we are hearing about this "Silliness"?... - tha malcontent)

By going on national TV from the White House, Obama portrayed himself as a voice of reason amid a loud, lingering debate on his birth status. Though his personal attention to the issue elevated it as never before, Obama said to Republican detractors and the media, it is time to move on to bigger issues.

("By going on national TV from the White House, Obama portrayed himself as a voice of reason amid a loud, lingering debate on his birth status..." Bullshit... It makes him look like his Skin was Thin enough for Trump to get under it... He hasn't addressed it for damned near 3 years, why now?... - tha malcontent)

Citing huge budget decisions in Washington, Obama said, "I am confident that the American people and America's political leaders can come together in a bipartisan way and solve these problems. We always have. But we're not going to be able to do it if we are distracted."

(If Trump can Distract Barry... We should probably be Concerned. - tha malcontent)

Obama spoke shortly after the White House released a copy of the long form of his birth certificate, which contains more extensive data than a version released earlier.

(Barack (6) Hussein (7) Obama (5) = 18 / 3 = 666. Can't you ****ING SEE IT!?! - tha malcontent)

The certificate says Obama was born to an American mother and Kenyan father, in Hawaii, which makes him eligible to hold the office of president. Obama released a standard short form before he was elected in 2008 but requested copies of his original birth certificate from Hawaii officials this week in hopes of quieting the controversy.

(I Thought is said "Africa"?... What's this, AP?... Inconsistencies again!?! - tha malcontent)

Until Wednesday, the White House had insisted that the short form certificate was the appropriate legal document confirming Obama's birth and no further proof was needed.

But so-called "birthers" opposed to Obama have kept the issue alive. Potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently began questioning why Obama hadn't ensured the long form was released.

(Trump should go after the Social Security number next! - tha malcontent)

From New Hampshire, Trump took credit for getting Obama to act.

"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," Trump said.

(What an Asshat Trump is... - tha malcontent)

Polls show large numbers of Republicans have continued to doubt Obama is a natural born citizen eligible to be president. Trump has seized on the issue as he weighs a GOP candidacy.

(Natural Born by Constitutional Standards, or Supreme Court Standards?... - tha malcontent)

While Obama and White House officials avoided mentioning Trump by name, officials said they released the birth certificate partially because the issue had moved beyond fringe discussion, and Obama criticized a media culture that had not let the story go.

(Like I am Certain Obama was Criticizing SeeBS and Dan Rather for not only not letting the "Bush was AWOL" thing go, but to front Forged Documents to support their Belief that he was... Such a FAIL on Dan's part that he lost his Job over it and SeeBS was forever Stained by it. - tha malcontent)

"This issue has been going on for two, two and a half years now. I think it started during the campaign," Obama said. "I have watched with bemusement, I've been puzzled at the degree at which this thing just kept on going."

(Obama doesn't Know if he was Born in Hawaii... He can't Possibly remember... Therefore, he's NOT an Authority on this Issue. - tha malcontent)

"We're not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers," the president said.

(Ooooooooo... Barry called Trump a Carnie!... It's ON!... Trump Plaza, May 21, 2011... Barry v Trump v... JESUS!... This time, they finish it! - tha malcontent)

He did not take any questions and did not say why the document had not been released earlier.

(Unlike the Don... Barry didn't want to be asked, in a VERY public way things like... "What about your Social Security number"... Or, "Are you going to release your College Records next?"... - tha malcontent)

Many Republican leaders have sought to distance themselves from the "birther" theory as a discredited notion not worthy of national public debate.

(Yep... And that's the beginning and end of this... Aside from the Show! - tha malcontent)

In a statement after Obama spoke, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called the issue a distraction - and yet blamed Obama for playing campaign politics by addressing it.

(Of course Barry is playing Politics with it... There was nothing driving this Release aside from Barry's Narcissism. - tha malcontent)

"The president ought to spend his time getting serious about repairing our economy," Priebus said. "Unfortunately his campaign politics and talk about birth certificates is distracting him from our number one priority - our economy."

The newly released certificate is signed by the delivery doctor, Obama's mother and the local registrar. His mother, then 18, signed her name (Stanley) Ann Dunham Obama.

The form says Barack Hussein Obama II was born at 7:24 p.m. on Aug. 4, 1961, at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital, within the city limits of Honolulu.

There's no mention of religion. It says his father, Barack Hussein Obama, age 25, was African and born in Kenya and his mother was Caucasian and born in Wichita, Kan. Obama's mother and the doctor signed the certificate on Aug. 7 and 8.

Hawaii's registrar certified the new photocopy of the document provided to the White House on April 25, 2011.

The White House also released a letter from the president on April 22 requesting two certified copies of his original certificate of live birth. Also released was a letter from Loretta Fuddy, Hawaii's director of health, approving the request.

The president's personal counsel, Judith Corley, traveled to Hawaii to pick up the documents and carried them back to Washington on a plane. The documents arrived at the White House around 5 p.m. Tuesday.

(I Tired of this Story... But rest assured... It ain't over kids! It's interesting that the AP FAILED to call out the Original Birthers... Bill & HILLARY! Clinton... You didn't Know?... Yep, the HILLARY! 2008 Campaign fronted that gem... Better acts somebody! - tha malcontent)
