There's no way this doesn't have a political motive. Maybe his polling really is that bad and he wants to take it off the table for 2012. Trump could be getting under his skin.
Is this the "modified hangout" - release the birth certificate and no one will question my buried grades or writings?
Since Hawaii no longer offers the long form even to the child, how did Obama get this? Did he "find it" in his private files?
The date stamp for the state registrar is Apr 25 2011.
Maybe the heat will be off now and people can start asking for the long form again.
Those who question Barry's lineage have never--except in the media's collective mind--been so simplistic as to be finished with their concern once they might learn that Barry had the document(s) to show he was born in Hawaii, but rather, that there was a myriad of ways that showed Barry is not a natural born citizen. To wit, neither of Barry's parents qualified to give him NBC status. On the contrary, so long as it was documented that BHO Sr. was his dad, the proof is incontrovertibly documented that Barry is not a NBC and that side of the argument deserves full exposition....Donald?
