Silliness indeed

To run for President of the United States, one must meet only two criteria: 1) Be at least 35 years of age and 2) having been born in the U.S. That's it! Seems like one of the more simple vetting processes for any job. That's why it has always made ZERO sense to me that there were certain people who questioned President Barack Obama's legitimacy to hold the office of POTUS.

Thankfully, this idiotic controversy of whether or not Obama was born in the U.S. has been put to rest.

Confronting growing doubts that could undermine his re-election bid, President Barack Obama on Wednesday delivered an extraordinary rebuttal to those questioning whether he was born in the United States and eligible to hold office, producing a detailed birth certificate and pleading for a long "sideshow" to end.

On TV, Obama said the issue was distraction from the important matters of the day: budget deficits and soaring gasoline prices.

Please, Mr. President. Those are the very issues the GOP Presidential candidates (at least the serious ones) have always intended to hang around your neck. Besides, the President himself said recently that the "birther" issue would be a liability for the Republicans. If he really believed that were the case, why didn't he just let the speculation about his birth certificate run rampant?

Anyhow, the President continued.

"We do not have time for this kind of silliness," Obama said in hurriedly announced appearance in the White House briefing room. "We've got better stuff to do."

You won't hear me say this often, but I agree with President Obama. The fact is I have scores of reasons why he should not be re-elected and questions of his citizenship were never on the list.

Speaking of a myriad of reasons why Obama should absolutely not be re-elected President, Hugh Hewitt lays out a very comprehensive list. Learn it. Know it. Live it.
