Barack Obama bested by The Donald …
This morning in Portsmouth, NH at a presser Donald Trump took credit for President Barack Obama finally releasing his “long form” certificate of live birth. Trump played the role of the conquering hero in making Obama finally say “uncle” as Trump stated, “I am very proud of myself”. Of course the question will always remain, why did Obama wait so long to release the document, why did the Hawaii Governor say it did not exist and why would Obama spend millions to prevent it’s release?
“Today I am very proud of myself, because I’ve accomplished something that nobody else was able to accomplish,” Trump said after landing in the Granite State.
More from Real Clear Politics:
“I’m taking great credit and you have to ask the president, ‘why didn’t he do this a long time ago? Why didn’t he do it a long time ago?’ When Hillary Clinton was asking, when everybody was asking, why didn’t he do it? It’s shocking. It’s shocking,” Donald Trump said at a press conference this morning on President Obama’s birth certificate.
Was Trump really to credit for Obama’s release of the birth certificate as recent polls shows an alarming amount of people who definitely believed Obama was born in the USA? Or did Obama release his
“TRUMP” Birth card in order to get some type of bounce in the polls so that he would not go below 40%?
Barack Obama Finally Shows Long Form Birth Certificate … After More than 2 Years in Office (UPDATE: Um, Why Now?)
Barack Obama … the ultimate chapter of “Lost in Smallness”.
Under pressure, continued attacks from Donald Trump and polling data that questions whether Barack Hussein Obama was born in the United States, Obama will have a press conference today and via the Drudge Report has released his birth certificate. View certificate HERE.
Barack Obama: Born in the USA …
Hmm, for an issue that is supposedly so bad for Republicans, why is the President giving this issue even more legs and credence? The President has finally buckled to the pressure. As the bias MSM is inclined to do, in carrying water for Obama, they collectively stated that the “bither” issue was harming the GOP. WRONG. This issue of the lack of an Obama birth certificate and the pounding that Trump had dome on the issue was harming Barack Obama. Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion is 100% correct, Trump has done damage to Obama. So much so that the President feels the need to have a presser on it amidst total chaos in the economy, gas prices and the Middle East.
What an amazing coup for Donald Trump in that he seemingly has forced President Obama to release his birth certificate. Something that many have asked, including the Hillary Clinton during the Democrat primaries.
UPDATE I: As reported at the Drudge Report, Obama was to release Long Form Birth Certificate. Um, WHERE IS IT? As similarly reported at Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion, isn’t this the same “certificate of live birth.” Not a birth certificate, not also another certificate of life birth. Although this form does have more info, one has to wonder if this is all that Obama and the WH is going to release, this story is in no way over.
UPDATE II: Barack Obama has presser on “Birth Certificate”. He stated that we are not going to be able to solve difficult issues if we are distracted by side shows. Obama just called Trump a “carnival barker” in his presser. Really Mr. President, you mean like the Obamacare being a distraction to jobs and the economy. Wow, Obama’s tone and comments were like former president Clinton’s “I did not Have Sex with that Woman”.
Obama has his own “Bill Clinton” moment, “I was not born outside the United States, not a single time, and now I have to go back to the work of the American people.
So now is the time for serious debate, says Barack Obama. Really Barack … actually the time for seriousness and dealing with important issues like the economy, jobs, unemployment and the out of control federal deficit was day one that you took office.
So the question is, why now? Why would Obama and his minions wait until now to release something that should have been done years ago? Obviously the internal polling data was worse than reported by the state run media. Also, with the rising gas prices and Obama’s falling poll numbers, Team Obama may have wanted to create a fire wall so not go into the 30% job approval.
UPDATE III: Obama going to get to the work of the American people. What the hell have you been doing since you were in office sir?
President Obama said today he released new copies of his Hawaii birth certificate today because the flap over his birthplace threatens to overshadow the “enormous challenges” facing the nation.
“We’re not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers,” Obama said.
UPDATE IV: Comments from the blogs:
From Hot Air comes the following truth, ok, now that the birth certificate is no longer, we can now concentrate on the fact that Barack Obama is a complete failure as President.
The Lonely Conservative asks, why wasn’t this done 2 years ago?
Actor Robert DeNiro Blasts Donald Trump … “Go get the facts before you start saying things about people.”
As reported at the HuffPo,the celebrities are aligning in support of Obama and criticizing anyone who may dare question Obama’s birth certificate. Actor Robert DeNiro went after Donald Trump and compared him to a used cars salesman for having the gall to dare question President Barack Obama may not have been born in America. It would appear that the LEFT in lockstep has now focused on this one issue to deflect from the fact that Obama has been an abject failure in everything he has touched since becoming President which can explain his falling polling numbers.
What ever happened to this guy?
“I won’t mention names, but certain people in the news the last couple weeks, just, what are they doing? It’s crazy. They’re making statements about people that they don’t even back up,” DeNiro said. “Go get the facts before you start saying things about people.”
DeNiro went on to confirm that Trump was among the unidentified folks to which he referred.
“It’s like a big hustle. It’s like being a car salesman,” DeNiro said. “Don’t go out there and say things unless you can back them up. How dare you?
But do not worry, its not like DeNiro has any personal bias for Barack Obama. Add DeNiro to the long list of lib actors who blindly drink the Obama Kool-aid. Obama is the only politician who’s intentions are “essentially good”. Of course they are Robert, I guess DeNiro must have missed Obama’s intentions with regards to the faltering economy, lack of jobs, gas prices and increasing inflation. As opined by The Other McCain, how absolutely weak and pathetic that DeNiro would look at one’s intentions and not their results. Touche. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Also, others that were not so well intentioned as well.
DeNiro, who campaigned for Obama’s election in 2008, also expressed displeasure at the fact that the government was almost shut down, but added that he believed that Obama’s intentions, unlike other politicians, are essentially good.
Just curious Mr. DeNiro, do you also question Barack Obama when he makes accusations without the facts or just flat out intentionally spins them?
Donald Trump, YOU’RE … POLLING BADLY!
Looks like those who were recently polled by Rasmussen agree with Karl Rove, Trump is a joke candidate. In a hypothetical match up between President Barack Obama and Donald Trump, Rasmussen says Obama wins 49% to 34%. YIKES!!! Notice the 12% that would not vote for either candidate, that’s rather interesting and troubling for “The One”.
President Obama leads Donald Trump by 15 percentage points in a hypothetical 2012 match-up, but the president is unable to top the 50% level of support even against an opponent some are deriding as a joke.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that the president earns support from 49% of Likely Voters nationwide, while Trump attracts the vote from 34%. Given that choice, 12% would vote for some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
On Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine, Sarah Palin was asked to weigh in on Donald Trump’s interest, investigation and comments on the Obama “Birther movement”. As reported at Mediaite Sarah Palin said the following:
“The Donald” is devoting to researching the existence of the president’s birth certificate. Palin’s answer? She noted it wasn’t that unthinkable for Trump to be curious about Obama’s birth certificate, as it was an issue that has transfixed a sizable segment of the body politic.
She expressed hope that perhaps Trump’s piles of money would be the key ingredient missing from prior investigations of the President’s birthplace;
When asked about the controversy surrounding Barack Obama’s birth certificate, Sarah Palin responded in a credible and professional manner, but also provided some “red meat” for her base … “I believe he was born in Hawaii,” however, the president’s decision not to release his birth certificate was “perplexing.”
