On second thought, leave the topic quick before Jesbeard breaks down your post and tries to convince you you didn't mean what you said you did.

Once again, Craig demonstrates that he is the BBF's most thoughtful and gentlemanly poster.

They release the birth certificate, and nary a peep around here?

Because President Obama apparently went into office believing two and a half years into his presidency, there would be no vital issues whatsoever that needed to be addressed and it would still be OK for the birthers to distract everybody with this meaningless issue.

It's amazing to me that there are so many people who still portray Obama as being above the political fray when he does such obviously blatant political stuff like this.  The reason he withheld it so long was to keep the birther issue alive to make his opponents look like crazies.  If he wanted to keep the birther issue from ever being a needless distraction, this should have been done a long time ago, and he ought to be called out and criticized for that but obviously won't.

I don't know...I think it's possible that Obama held back for the same reason Bush never responded to the ridiculous 9/11 truthers...because the nuts who really buy into these conspiracies aren't worth responding to.  I mean, if he was going to hold back for political reasons, why not wait until next August or September when he could marginalize his opponents just before the election?

Obama probably should've continued ignoring them.  Beerfan will show up here in the next couple of days and show us why releasing the birth certificate was a waste of time.  He'll have rationalized it somehow and will point out "flaws" in the birth certificate that was released, concluding that it was a Photoshop forgery.

At this point it doesn't matter if he was born on Mars - he has not been very good at his job so far

Obama took a page out of the Clinton play book.  Let the nuts scream about something that most people consider to be completely unrelated to the presidency.  When someone not considered to be on the fringe of society finally called for it's release, he released it.  In the meantime, millions of dollars that could have been spent publicizing Obama's horrible policies have been wasted on something the general public considers irrelevant at best and idiotic at worst.

And as said above, the Beerfan's of the world will still find fault with it and claim that it is a forgery.  The first one I saw was the claim that the certificate should read "negro" rather than "African".

He clearly released it now to avoid any distractions during his very important interview with Oprah.  Got to get your priorities straight.

And then he's headed to Cape Canaveral to see the last shuttle launch - because Gabby's husband is on the crew?

Maybe he will console all of the soon-to-be unemployed scientists and engineers - they could have a dangerous job like the politicians have

Give me a break.   Who spent "millions of dollars" publicizing anything?  As I have mentioned in the past, it is not as if the RNC was running TV adds on this, or Boehner was having his focus taken off legislative issues to gin up interest in the birth certificate.  The interest and any activity on the issue either came from folks who otherwise would not have been active in any meaningful political manner (other than carping about Obama with their friends), or from folks like those at wnd.com or Jerome Corsi who are promoting his book, "Where's the Birth Certificate" and money spent was simply promoting what they were selling.

Dozens of lawsuits have been instituted over the country.  You should know that awsuits are not cheap.  And the amount of time and effort wasted exceeds the amount of money wasted.

Well, it had to happen.  Superman is no longer an American.
