Plus, by not releasing it, Obama could drive those same crazy people even crazier as time went on.

    But it seems my fears about this being an issue that will now go away were unfounded. Queen Crazy, Orly Taits, just said she feels the certificate is forged because for race of Obama's father the document says African, not negro. It just goes to show that crazy people will not see the light, no matter how glaring. So the birther issue will remain with us, if not at a diminished level, pushing ever more reasonable independents to the liberal fold.
    You sure have a lot of nerve for somebody totally bitch slapped by Donald Trump. Stop pretending you know anything about what happened today cause you don't!

    He should have let Trump continue on and get more and more popular. With any luck he could have been nominated by the GOP. Only then should he have released his Long Form Certificate, deflating the ego balloon at its apex.

    Do tell, what happened today?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Not one "we were wrong" on this tedious thread. Just proves, with the right, it's never about facts just brick throwing.

    I wouldn't equate the "right," whoever they are, with birthers. It's true you can't reason with birthers, but they do not represent all on the right. There are nutters everywhere.

    Just saying.

    You mean how today we saw that Donald Trump was bitching and spending money on investigators all to prove.......that Obama was telling the truth all this time, that the previous document that was legally acceptable to prove his eligability was correct, and that all the birther's efforts to prove Obama wasn't a citizen were as worth while as we all thought them to be?

    You mean how THAT happened today?

    You realize that the "right" does not equal "the birthers" any more than "the left" equaled "The truthers". There's numerous people on "the right" in this thread saying it was stupid and having been against the birther movement from the beginning. Also, the largest birther on the site and the one still going on about how "heroic" trump is is someone I'd hardly be able to say you can clearly define as "the right" or "the left". So...just no.
