Trump Gets Results ... Obama Finally Comes Clean
President Barack Hussein Obama finally releases his long form birth certificate after over two years of speculation and clamor from Hillary Clinton, some private Democrat and Republican political party voters, and now the relentless and persistent Donald Trump.
The really sad thing about this tale is what it says about a man who has been given the great responsibility to lead a nation. This man played and toyed with this issue for over two years making a spectacle out of something that in the end, is only definitive to the rule-of-law, procedure, and little more.
Donald Trump did what the American press could not ... and would not do, which is to get results as to this point of legal definition. A person is not legitimate to be elected to the position of President of the United States without being a born citizen (versus naturalized) of the United States.
The 44th president of the United states finally places this proof of his citizenship to rest, but why did he wait until now to finally do what any standup person and legitimate contender for the office of the United states would have done when this issue was first raised by Hillary Clinton?
Barack Hussein Obama must be a sado-masochist and/or desperate to have this be an issue so that he would never have to answer the tough questions about his incompetent leadership on energy, the economy, and world affairs.

Trump 'proud' of himself, takes credit for birth-certificate release
From NBC's Shawna Thomas
Donald Trump is "proud" of himself for, as he puts it, "getting the president to release his birth certificate." In the minutes before Trump landed in Portsmouth, NH, to begin a day of stumping, the White House released President Obama's long-form birth certificate, and Trump told the press he heard about it while flying to the airfield.
"Today I'm very proud of myself, because I've accomplished something that no one else has been able to accomplish," Trump said, adding, "Our president has finally released a birth certificate."
However, he said he would have to check out the certificate himself and wondered why the president didn't do this "a long time ago."
Trump and the press moved away from the "birther" issue, allowing him the chance to disagree with the President on how he's handling rising gas prices in the country saying Obama "should be focused on OPEC and getting those prices down." As well as Libya where Trump said he would've handled that situation differently, "The rebels, I hear, are controlled by Iran and Al Qaeda...You could end up with worse than Khaddafy perhaps."
Maybe now the president can get back to what seems to be of most importance to him lately like the White House Correspondent's Dinner, being with Oprah, Basketball, WH Wednesday night live musical performance parties, and ... golf.
