Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


Trump Lies, While The Only Grown-Up In The Room Continues To Lead Our Country! (Video) President Provides His BC To The Press

Keep in mind that the President provided his Birth Certificate a long time ago.  This is the Long Form
And yes, of course "My hair looks like road kill" Trump would try to take credit for the President releasing the long form BC but those of us who actually have a brain never had any doubts about the birth place of President Obama.  All Trump did throughout this whole side show is confirm to many of us that he is a liar, a snake oil salesman and that he shares a brain cell with Sarah Palin.  The real grown-up in the room produced a birth certificate because this Country is hurting and the "little people" of this Country are sinking while the tea party republicans play games with our lives by trying to destroy the President.  It has always been their goal, not this Country.  The tea party republicans have proved by their words and actions that they are fighting for the rich, the corporations, they want to end SSI and Medicare and they have a clown for every occasion! Every sane person in this Country should demand that NBC Fire Trump and the People of this Country need to Fire the Tea Party Republicans! -Mem

Obama’s ‘Long-Form’ Birth Certificate Is Released
President Obama posted a copy of his “long-form” birth certificate from the state of Hawaii, hoping to finally end a long-simmering conspiracy theory among some conservatives who asserted falsely that he was not born in the United States and was not a legitimate president.

The birth certificate, which is posted online at the White House Web site, shows conclusively that Mr. Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is signed by state officials and his mother.

“The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn’t good for the country,” Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director, wrote on the Web site Wednesday morning. “It may have been good politics and good TV, but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country.”

Mr. Pfeiffer said in the statement that the president authorized officials in Hawaii to release the document broadly.

In a statement to the news media Wednesday morning, Mr. Obama said he decided to release the document in an effort to end the “silliness” about his birth that threatened to distract from the serious issues facing the country.

“Over the last two and a half years, I have watched with bemusement,” he said in brief remarks. “I’ve been puzzled by the degree to which this thing just kept on going.”

Mr. Obama said there would be a “segment of people for which, no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest.” But he said that he was “speaking to the vast majority of the American people and to the press. We do not have time for this kind of silliness.”

The president said he decided to release the “long-form” birth certificate two weeks ago, after news reports about the controversy dominated a week in which Republicans released their 2012 budget and Mr. Obama gave a speech on the nation’s debt.

“This is going to generate huge and serious debates, important debates,” Mr. Obama said. “That’s how democracy is supposed to work.”

But, he added that “we are not going to be able to do it if we are distracted. We are not going to be able to do it if we spend time vilifying each other. We are not going to be able to do it if we just make stuff up and pretend that facts are not facts.”

He also called out, without using names, Republicans like Donald Trump, who have repeatedly raised the birth certificate issue, saying that the political process should ignore the “sideshows and carnival barkers.”

The contention that Mr. Obama was not born in the United States, and therefore did not meet the constitutional requirement for election as president, has been around for years and has long been refuted, but has recently gained public attention after Mr. Trump, the real estate mogul, raised questions as he explored whether to run for president.

In a news conference Wednesday morning, Mr. Trump claimed credit for forcing Mr. Obama’s hand, saying that “I feel I’ve accomplished something really, really important.” But he said the document released Wednesday would have to be examined for authenticity.

“I hope it’s the right deal,” he said. “We have to look at it. A lot of people have to look at it. I hope it’s true, and the reason I hope its true is because we have real problems in this country.”

White House officials had for years sought to ignore questions about Mr. Obama’s birth, pointing to a shorter form routinely given out by Hawaiian officials as sufficient to end the questions.

In July of 2009, Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary at the time, dismissed the “made-up fictional nonsense of whether or not the president was born in this country.”

But the so-called birther controversy continued as evidenced by polls that suggested large numbers of people in the country said they were not confident that Mr. Obama was in fact born in the country.

Many of the doubters suggested that Mr. Obama could not produce the “long-form” birth certificate because they assumed it did not exist. The White House decision to produce the document is an effort to disprove those accusations.

President Obama's Long Form Birth Certificate

In 2008, in response to media inquiries, the President’s campaign requested his birth certificate from the state of Hawaii. The state sent the campaign the President’s birth certificate, the same legal documentation provided to all Hawaiians as proof of birth in state, and the campaign immediately posted it on the internet. That birth certificate can be seen here (PDF).

When any citizen born in Hawaii requests their birth certificate, they receive exactly what the President received. In fact, the document posted on the campaign website is what Hawaiians use to get a driver’s license from the state and the document recognized by the Federal Government and the courts for all legal purposes. That’s because it is the birth certificate. This is not and should not be an open question.

The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn’t good for the country. It may have been good politics and good TV, but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country. Therefore, the President directed his counsel to review the legal authority for seeking access to the long form certificate and to request on that basis that the Hawaii State Department of Health make an exception to release a copy of his long form birth certificate. They granted that exception in part because of the tremendous volume of requests they had been getting. President Barack Obama's long form birth certificate can be seen here (PDF):

At a time of great consequence for this country – when we should be debating how we win the future, reduce our deficit, deal with high gas prices, and bring stability to the Middle East, Washington, DC, was once again distracted by a fake issue.  The President’s hope is that with this step, we can move on to debating the bigger issues that matter to the American people and the future of the country.
