  1. Donald Trump is an ass ... as for releasing the birth certificate ... I guess it was a no-win situation - but I really hate that Obama released it .. "If you give a mouse a cookie ..."

  2. OMG, such drivel from this too-rich-to-fail man's lips. He's too stupid to realize that by releasing Obama's long-form certificate of live birth that the White House saved him (and countless other Birthers) from their own idiocy on the subject! I almost wish the White House hadn't take this step. Oh, well, Wing Nut Daily still thinks this document has to be proven to be "real" for them to end their participation in the GOPers birther discussion. Unbelievable.

  4. Next issue from this loser, Obama's grades, then on to his smoking. The MSM will gladly aid in giving him a stage.

  5. Thought Obama's response was very good - especially when he made the remark about hucksters which was designed to point directly to Trump.

  6. There are only two ways to look at this: either Obama inexplicably blew it or this has played out exactly the way he wanted it to. The former seems unthinkable from such a successful politician and the POTUS, but, then, the latter seems unthinkable because then we have to ask why he wanted all these years of discord and mayhem from crazy, racist hicks.

    So which one is it?

  7. Is this Obama endorsing the unelectable Trump as his opposition in 2012?

  8. I guess this had to happen at some point, but I think releasing it was a mistake. If an entire "movement," and I use that word with reservation, can be based on birth, then who's to say that these crazies can't start another movement later on something else totally irrelevant to the aptitude of being president.

    I haven't been the hugest or most consistent supporter of Obama throughout these last few years, but even I can recognize what good he has done, and what a waste of time the "birthers" are.

  9. Didn't trump say he'd release his tax returns as soon as obama released his bc? This should be interesting...

  10. Trump deserves only partial "credit" -- for forcing Obama to do something no president in the history of the United States has ever had to do. That's the definition of racism, Donald. You'd think someone so tight with "the blacks" would know better.

  11. trump has transformed himself from mildly annoy press whore into a glen beck disgusting racist fear mo9nger. i hope his otherwise capable seeming kids have the moral fiber to be appalled and ashamed of their sorry excuse for a sire.

  12. we'll have a look at it, the experts will look at it, everyone will look at it, even my pet rat living on my head will have a look at it.. lets all look at it.. good grief what a moron.

  13. I too am sorry he released He should have waited for the first debate and have released it say about 15 minutes before it started, or maybe 5 minutes into it.
    I really hope Trump runs as an independent 3rd party

  14. I'm sad that the president even legitimized the argument by showing it. Nothing he could show will ever be good enough for those people. It was never about his birth certificate, some people just have a problem seeing a president with brown skin. Point, blank, period.

  15. Good. So this ridiculous birther nonsense is finally over? I am so sick of this baseless tripe dominating the news.
