Case Closed?

President Obama has released his long-form birth certificate from Hawaii, hopefully bringing an end to what has become an unbelievably silly distraction.

This morning, he said:
And I have to say that over the last two and a half years I have watched with bemusement, I've been puzzled at the degree to which this thing just kept on going. We've had every official in Hawaii, Democrat and Republican, every news outlet that has investigated this, confirm that, yes, in fact, I was born in Hawaii, August 4, 1961, in Kapiolani Hospital.
What puzzles me is why the White House just didn't release the long form in the first place and end the nonsense. Then again, the president has better things to do than be goaded by Donald Trump. He shouldn't have to cowtow to those who looking for an excuse -- any excuse -- to get him booted out of office.

Really, now, will this make a difference among those grabbing at a bunch of rotten straws? Methinks not.
