While Trump may have an “October surprise” that will destroy President Obama’s reelection campaign for the White House, I don’t think it’s going to be much more than seeing Trump get the headlines for part of the day, again.
While the “left” has distracted the campaign much too long by screaming about Romney’s tax information for months, the “right” has been asking for President Barack Obama’s academic records and other documents for years. The president should take his turn at disclosing long asked for documents.
In 2008 it seemed we had entered a new era of post-racial politics, but the dog whistle politics of the Grand Old Party has again raised its ugly head. In fact, since Obama’s election the Tea Party Republicans efforts to race bait have only increased.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Tuesday declined to say whether he believes President Barack Obama was born in the United States.
Chad played some excerpts from Donald Trump’s press conference on Wednesday morning. In case you missed them, we’ve got them here for you.
Did Barack Obama change any minds with the release of his long-form birth certificate?
Oh, how The Donald was crowing this morning. Taking complete credit for forcing the President to release his birth certificate, Trump threw his shoulder WAY out of joint patting himself on the back. We’ve got a link to the video.
In an effort to put to an end to the speculation that he wasn’t born in this country, President Obama released his long form birth certificate today. We’ve got a link to the story, video and pictures of the certificate.
View for yourself! Are the “BIRTHERS” satisfied?
Wednesday morning, the White House released a copy of the long-form Birth Certificate from the state of Hawaii. See the image and listen to the President’s statement here!
Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann appears to be backing off previous statements questioning whether President Obama is actually a United States citizen.
The former Director of Hawaii’s Department of Health says that she personally reviewed President Obama’s birth certificate, and denounces the “birthers” as “conspiracy theorists”. MSNBC’s Michael Iskikoff has the story.
You can say this about The Donald: he doesn’t give up. Even with folks like Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly telling him the “birther” stuff is nonsense, Trump is still talking about it. We’ve got a link to an interview with NBC where he talks about sending investigators to Hawaii to check things out.
Chad just mentioned an interview with Baltimore Orioles OF Luke Scott where he espouses the belief that President Obama wasn’t born in the US.
Among the other new measures taking effect in Minnesota today – an increase in the fee for a birth certificate.
