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

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....

He can freakin’ say anything that he wants, but he is still not a Natural Born Citizen and why didn’t Georgie boy ask him about the fraudulent SSN that he is using.

Further, it doesn’t matter if he was born in Hawaii, he isn’t a child of two citizens.


Unless his father happened to be Frank Marshall Davis...

What plan? The question remains out there. 51% of Reps have questions about Obama’s birth place as do 27% of Dems. Obama has a legitimacy problem. Just asking the question is not a plan.

I don't really give a shit if he was born in ANY State; were his parents both U.S. Citizens, proper ages, and qualifying him as a "Natural Born U.S. Citizen".

MOST Birthers are not as concerned as to WHERE he was born, but more about WAS HE A NATURAL BORN U.S. CITIZEN?

In his speech yesterday, obama said that if it weren't for a scholarship he had received, he wouldn't be where he was. Since he raised the issue, obama should be asked to explain the particulars of this scholarship.

And if people are confident, then why is Trump getting so much support from the PEOPLE on this issue?

Or at least it seems like he is. I wonder if there’s any way to know.

He is lying... and trying to hide it... and he is careful in what he says because he knows that one day we will know what he knows.

He doesn’t have a birth certificate either.

Another thing, How does he know he was born in Hawaii, if he doesn’t have the papers to prove it?

I don’t have any recollection of being born in Wheeling Illinois, but I have certified papers to prove it.

Or Stanley Dunham with an "acquaintance" of FMD doing a stand-in as the "baby momma"... oops. But, Dunham always wanted a son...
