On Wednesday, in a surprise move by Barack Obama, the White House released what it’s calling the “long form” of Obama’s birth certificate. Obama then made a quick statement to the press saying, “We do not have time for this kind of silliness.” Is this the document that does it?
As noted in the Associated Press story:
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.
Donald Trump, who has been bringing renewed attention to the birth certificate issue, spoke this morning:
Obama addressed Trump indirectly by saying that America is dealing with “side shows and carnival barkers.”
What do you think? Is the issue now over?
