Obama has done something no one could have predicted, he release is long form birth certificate. After 2 1/2 years, he's finally released a certificate of live birth. Now, why would he release this thing, and why would it have such obvious flaws in it (lightly penciled numbers and x's, father's race as African, etc. Well, the answer is simple: Distraction. The economy is failing, the dollar is failing, and the defense secretary decided to quit. That's the long and short of it. Obama needs a boost, and unfortunately, the ignorance and blind acceptance of the American People have given him a much needed boost in the approval polls. The dumbing down of the American people is almost complete. Even I am making grammatical errors. Soon we will all be useful idiots, and who's to say that's not a good thing. After all, ignorance is bliss.
