Any question? Trump flushes out Obama's birth certificate

The White House releases President Obama's certificate of live birth....in a surprise move.  And The Donald quickly takes full credit for flushing it out of the President.

Here we are, 3 wars underway, on the brink of economic collapse, and we're still talking about birthers and Obama not being one of 'us'.  Trump took full personal credit for it and congratulated himself.  But Trump did point to where much of the problem is... on the press which wouldn't ever stop asking and doing birther stories that stir the pot.

Trump said it's time now to start talking about OPEC and China's currency manipulation.  He said reporters will maybe leave him alone about the birth certificate issue he capitalized on.  Trump dodged reporter questions about the unnamed evidence he said his 'people' had been uncovering.   He would say only he hopes the certificate is legitimate and America can get on with solving the country's serious problems, which he called a 'mess'.

Even as Trump was still speaking, Obama walked into the press room to talk about his bemusement over the distraction of his birth certificate.  The president said this was about side shows and carnival barkers and there are more important issues.   He did not mention Trump by name.  Obama said America doesn't have time for 'this silliness'.

The birth certificate story eclipsed the real news leaking out of the White house today as the president is about to change some of his top officials.  AP reports President Barack Obama plans this week to name CIA Director Leon Panetta to replace Defense Secretary Robert Gates, and Gen. David Petraeus, now running the war in Afghanistan, would take the CIA chief's job in a major shuffle of the nation's top national security leadership, administration and other sources said Wednesday.
