Time to break out the Springstein anthem. President Obama was in fact born in the USA. Just this morning, the White House released the President’s long form birth certificate to allay any remaining doubts about the President’s birthplace. If this is news to you, well thenâ€¦now you know.
In remarks after the release, the President said that the country didn’t need to be distracted by “sideshows” and “carnival barkers.” I couldn’t agree more with his characterization because that’s exactly what this birther issue was.
[In related news, the sideshow continues. Donald Trump says that he is “proud” of himself for getting the President to release his birth certificate. Listen to the Q&A. Trump still sounds skeptical.]
