Again, Trump made that statement. Trump did not "want to say who it was that told him". Here's the link and it includes a video Donald Trump | birth certificate missing | Obama | The Daily Caller - Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment.

2. FACT: Earlier today, the White House released Obama's "long form" birth certificate. Here is the link Obama Sticks It to Donald Trump Over Birth Certificate - Chris Good - Politics - The Atlantic

3. FACT:Obama was indeed born on US soil, AND the "long form" certificate was produced. Donald Trump made a statement, and did not cite his source(s). [b]Trump engaged in GOSSIP[/B].

CONCLUSION: Trump's "statement" was proven wrong. Trump is a gossip. People who gossip cannot be believed, taken seriously or trusted.

THEREFORE: Trump now has a credibility problem.

Neither can liars. Guantanamo closed in a year? Transparency? Hope and change?

Incorrect.

Obama PLAYED Trump like a violin.

The one with egg on his face is Trump, not Obama.

This is why Obama released his long form.
It's called damage control

Barack Obama birth certificate statement

USA Today/Gallup opinion poll:

In the USA Today poll, only 38% of Americans say Obama definitely was born in the USA, and 18% say he probably was. Fifteen percent say he probably was born in another country, and 9% say he definitely was born elsewhere.

Now, the nation can work with the issues
we are plagued with, and Obama can
run for 2012 based on his record and
policies.

Which I guess will be a scary thought to some,
who were hoping this would be a wedge issue
throughout the next campaign.

Now that it has been released. It wont be

Now you are changing the subject to a substantial issue. Congratulations.

GITMO is a relevant issue.

This is no different than a train conductor asking to see your tickets after the train has left the station..
You are kidding, right? There has been proof all along but some didn't want to see it. It made Trump look stupider then his hair does already.

Sorry, never a birther. Would you like to take a shot at these questions, is Obama any different than Trump? A cowardly version at that!

How many other presidents have showed theirs?
