    Nice to see him release the Certificate vs. the Certification. What was interesting to me was all of the "reasons" why he couldn't or wouldn't reveal the actual Certificate. I honestly feel that anyone who files to run for the presidency of the United States should be required to make this document a part of their application packet so this type of situation will never happen again. Very surprised that these measures were not already in place. The question begs............why did President Obama not release this document when he filed to run? Seems so simple since it was easily accesible.

    It was an issue because you must be born in the U.S. to hold the office of President and he had never shown his Birth Certificate to prove that point. I feel the issue was valid and I am glad that it's resolved.

    Actually I do believe Obama was born in Hawaii and I think the whole birth certificate is dumb. More important things to worry about, like the economy. That is where I believe we need a new person to lead us. One that is not afraid to upset the established. That is why trump can not win, he will do the right thing and ruffle feathers of the established.

    You must show your birth certificate to enter elementary school, but not the White House. Amazing.

    I'm not sure that's what RM was talking about. No one asked to see any other president's birth certificate. An anti-Obama vocal minority grew, despite doctor statements, Obama's statements, birth announcements in papers and certificates of live birth. It never was an issue. People have issues with Obama and this was just the thing they clung to.

    Hey, I'm on board with that. This was probably released today to take attention of Geithner's presser.

Oh look here it is now, the offical certificate. We must believe them since they said it. It is soooo sad that some of you believe everything the Government says, brainwashed till the end.

    I am voting for Trump because at least he has guts to confront problems and go back on his ideas.
    Best post ever.

    Obama messed up doing this, it was taking the attention of the republicans instead of focusing on issues like the economy. Now the Republicans can focus on the real issues.

    I think Trump would be great but can not win because his main advisors are Obama advisors.

    Don't count on it. From either side.

    No other President had ever been reluctant to produce their Birth Certificate, therefore making it a non-issue. President Obama had only produced a Certification of Live Birth which is very different than a Certificate of Live Birth. Obama supporters continue to make bad judgments when they automatically assume that anyone who questioned his reluctance to produce the actual long form Birth Certificate was an Obama detractor or hater and also a "crazy" Republican. I am glad this thing is over, but all of the reasons to produce the document were valid in my opinion.

    You heard it here, ladies and gentlemen. Republicans weren't focusing on the economy because they were more concerned with Obama's birth certificate.

    The issue has picked up some steam as of late because of Trump's potential candidacy. I think we can remove Trump's name from the ballot now.

    Sadly I do not think this fully removes the birther movement; people will still question the legitimacy of his place of birth.
