Obama's birth certificate: much ado about nothing

April 29, 2011

Why should President Obama have to show his birth certificate to prove he is an American citizen when other presidents have not been asked to show theirs? It seems that Donald Trump and all the other doubters are sideshow carnival barkers making much ado about nothing.

Now that the world has seen the document, the naysayers will continue to doubt the president's authenticity as much as they always have.

As for Mr. Trump's calling Obama's acceptance into Harvard Law School unfair because of his family income, that is ludicrous. Mr. Obama's acceptance into Harvard was based on brains, whereas Mr. Trump's brain was rejected despite his family's wealth.

This shows that money isn't everything.
