Quote# 80944[Obama releases his official birth certificate.]
Democrats are hailing this as a huge defeat for the Republicans. It isn’t, but they are very good at messaging.
However, there is a very serious question to be asked. Since there are no bombshells here, except the possibility that Obama’s mother might have been a few days underage at the time of the conception, the question remains, why did Obama spend millions of dollars to keep this document secret?
Donald Trump, being the savvy guy that he is, is already moving to his next target. Obama’s college records. Obama has never released his college records, including those at Occidental College. Many believe Obama went to college there on a scholarship reserved for foreign students.
Obama should release his college records, as well as his attorney disciplinary records. Whether he will or not is anyone’s guess, though once Obama broke and released this document, he will have a much harder time not releasing other documents.
For the conservative movement, this is a two edged sword. Getting to see some of these documents is great. The question is what will it do to the Obama candidacy? Obama could be mortally wounded if some of the other records reveal embarrassing things, such as attending school on a scholarship reserved for foreign students. The Democrats may actually want this to happen. As gas prices rise and so does inflation, the chances of an Obama second term diminish. If something happened and the Democrats could replace Obama with someone else (Hillary Clinton?), that candidate could run against the Obama record as well as the Republicans, giving them a shot at keeping at least the White House in Democratic hands.
