Obama releases his birth certificate to the world
President Obama held a press conference this morning to trumpet the fact that he was finally releasing the birth certificate. This had been a request that many had made for quite some time. With world crisis on a multitude of fronts, the President said that he was releasing the proof of his place of birth so that the country could focus on those issues affecting the country’s homeland security and economic security.
The scene of the press conference was somewhat surreal from the perspective of a sitting president of the United States, in office for over two years, still being in the position of having to convince the electorate that he was indeed a legitimate holder of the office.
The question begs asking therefore as to why, if this has been such a distraction for the President, he waited until this time to release what it appears that he has had all of the time? Why, if there was no issue, did he allow it to become an issue and a distraction?
Somehow this entire episode does not pass the smell test, and I fear with all of the dangers facing the country, this story is not over.
