Viddy of the day: President Obama provides his birth certificate to the press. From PBS news hour.
We finally saw the actual birth certificate. The Presidents birth certificate. Apparently the President got sick of all the bullshit involved in hearing idiots talk in the news and commentary about how they aren’t sure if he’s really an American. He was born in Hawaii, just like he said he was.
That ought to shut most of the assholes up…. for a minute. Most, not all.
Now Orly Taitz, the queen of the birther’s is now talking some silly crap about the Presidents Social Security # or some such silliness, and Donald Trump is taking credit for getting the birth certificate actual put out there. The first bit doesn’t warrant word one in response, Orly doesn’t deserve the time of day from anyone but her family, who are forced to listen to her because they are related to her.
Donald deserves some mention here for the sheer chutzpah of his statement. He has been the most famous and loudest of the birthers, and while he may have had a hand in getting the President to finally pry a copy of the birth certificate out of the state of Hawaii, that isn’t a good thing for “the donald.”
He has been making his mark politically saying the President is not really an American. The President has given the last possible proof of his American citizenship, after giving more proof than most people are ever asked to give for any thing in their lives, ever. More than “the donald” has ever been asked for, for anything whatsoever. This is the ultimate death of the birther movement, and that is the movement that “the donald” has allied himself to.
It will be fun to watch this man, this stinking pile of hubris topped with a shitty comb-over, try to make this work in a political way for anyone who is not part of the right wing political birther fringe. He gets a lot of coverage because he is a minor celebrity who gives good quote, who always has been a big mouth, but to be a real political player, he needs more than the birther fringe.
It is difficult to imagine him being more than a verb, a noun and another conspiracy theory. He is Rudy Giuliani without the political savvy or the good sense to know when he’s beat. And that isn’t a good thing, because Rudy Giuliani is a loser and a shithead.
We may not be able to stop all evil in the world, but I know that how we treat one another is entirely up to us. I believe that for all our imperfections, we are full of decency and goodness, and that the forces that divide us are not as strong as those that unite us.
President Barack Obama
