Obama Exclusive: I Was Born in Hawaii and I Donít 'Have Horns'
ABC News ^ | April 14, 2011 | George Stephanopoulos

Posted on 04/14/2011 4:47:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

I thought the president would take a pass when I asked him about Donald Trump’s rise to the top of the Republican field in my exclusive interview today.

Far from it.

He grabbed at the chance with a big smile – saying he thinks the whole issue will be a problem for Republicans.

“I think that over the last two and a half years there's been an effort to go at me in a way that is politically expedient in the short-term for Republicans. But [it] creates, I think a problem for them when they want to actually run in a general election where most people feel pretty confident the President was born where he says he was, in Hawaii. He-- he doesn't have horns…we're not really worrying about conspiracy theories or-- or birth certificates,” President Obama told me.

And in all my talks with Obama I think it was the first time he was one the same page as Karl Rove who thinks the “birther” controversy is hurting the GOP.

“The truth of the matter is that I think that the vast majority of Americans across the country – Democratic or Republican – really want this election to be about growing the economy, getting control of the deficit, preparing the future for our kids. And my suspicion is that anybody who is not addressing those questions…Is going to be in trouble. I think they may get a quick pop in the news. They may get a lot of attention. But ultimately, the American people understand this is a serious, sober time,” he told me....

Just show the document that you have spent $2 million dollars trying to hide.

Also, there is a Colonel (medical doctor) has went to JAIL over this. His wife I believe is black (hmmm). I really think you should interview him.

I just did a search on John McCain’s birth certificate. Here is what a long form should look like:

Does this birth certificate look anything like Obama’s?

and George, doing his best to be part of the MSM, did not even ask the obvious follow up question..”why...can’t...you...just...show..it and shut up the birthers?”

Probably too busy drooling.

Well he's right... because that's all the media, including Beck, O'Riley, Limbaugh and Fox News... every single other major outlet, every local TV Station, news paper and magazine will spend the next 570 plus days harping on...

Everyone better hope Trump has the goods if not the media will use it to discredit everything every single person with an (R) by their names says, does or tries to do...

Well, he probably does have horns (hidden behind those bat-ears) but as for the rest of it, why doesn’t he simply show us his records? Not only the BC, but all of his school records, his medical records, etc.

Bush and in fact virtually all GOP presidents have been challenged to do this and they have simply released it all. So what is Barry hiding?

Once again, Bill Clinton's #1 Domestic Policy Adviser is interviewing Barack Obama under the pretext of "straight-news journalism", and both men can keep a straight face while they do it.

They must be laughing their asses off before the cameras start to roll.

So am I just missing it, but where does he (Obama) state that he was born in Hawaii? Or that he has documentation to back it up?

All I heard was implied threat that this was going to hurt Republicans. It all seems to be part of the same game that Rove is playing to squelch the issue.

I am still waiting for anybody in the media to actually use the term “natural born” citizen (other than Trump).

Exactly. Remember when George S. helped out Obama when Obama talked about "my Muslim faith" and George immediately corrected him with the prompt "you mean your Christian faith". There was no way in hell George S. was going to ask the painfully obvious follow-up question here - "why don't you show your long-form birth certificate?" They probably agreed on that in advance.

Big difference between “confidence” (feelings) and absolute certainty (facts).

Americans across the country – Democratic or Republican – really want this election to be about
growing the economy,
about which you know nothing,
getting control of the deficit, about which you know nothing,
preparing the future for our kids. about which you have no clue,
And my suspicion is that anybody who is not addressing those questions…Is going to be in trouble. and you are.

Memo to BO: It's possible for GOP candidates to multi- task. They can question the birth certificate AND address the issues facing our country.

DONALD TRUMP:
I am saying I want to see the birth certificate. It’s very simple. I want to see the birth certificate. How come his own family doesn’t know which hospital he was born in? How come– forget about birth certificates. Let’s say there’s no birth certificate. How come in the hospital itself, okay? This is one of the…in the hospital itself, there’s no records of his birth. In other words, it doesn’t say how much they paid, where is the doctor, here’s your room bill. You know, all the...

MEREDITH VIEIRA:
You’ve been privy to all of this to know this?

DONALD TRUMP:
Well, I have people that actually have been studying it and they cannot believe what they’re talking.

MEREDITH VIEIRA:
You have people now out there searching– I mean, in Hawaii?

DONALD TRUMP:
Absolutely. And they cannot believe what they’re finding. And I’m serious–

If you have have the chutzpah to tell a lie and commit a fraud out in the open, you can remain President. It has worked before.

I also know I would not have spent 2 million dollars in legal fees preventing the release of my birth certificate either.

If I was right I’d personally put it out there and rip my detractors several new ones and discredit them forever as a credible source.

Au contraire. Trumpt doesn't have to produce the goods, Obama does. Trump says he hopes Obama can produce the long form of his BC. And if AZ passes its law requiring it to be on the 2012 ballot along with some other states, Obama will have the burden of proof placed on him where it belongs.
