Obama has released the long-form birth certificate they’ve been demanding, but it won’t make any difference to the hard-core Birthers. After all, they don’t like Obama so they will never trust this evidence. Better to wallow in their paranoid conspiracy theory which also doubles as a nice front for their rampant racism. MSNBC reported the story this way:

Obama releases detailed U.S. birth certificate

President slams ‘silliness’ of birther issue; Trump claims credit for release

From staff and news service reports

WASHINGTON — Responding to critics’ relentless claims, President Barack Obama on Wednesday produced a detailed Hawaii birth certificate in an extraordinary attempt to bury the issue of where he was born and confirm his legitimacy to hold office. He declared, “We do not have time for this kind of silliness.”

By going on national TV from the White House, Obama portrayed himself as a voice of reason amid a loud, lingering debate on his birth status.

This has never been about the birth certificate. It has to do with the fact that he is an arrogant uppity negro who isn’t in his proper place or station in life. If Obama had been a white guy named “O’Brien”, born to an American mother and an Irish national father in Hawaii, we wouldn’t be having this discussion right now.

Why? Because he would be white, and either a Catholic or a Protestant. It wouldn’t even matter if his father had been an IRA member with known ties to terrorists. Because he would be an “acceptable” terrorist from an “acceptable” religion.

Indeed. The reaction of crazy people to, like, actual facts, is to always simply double down on the crazy. Admit they were wrong? Heavens forbid!
