This won't settle anything, because reality does not mean anything to the crazy birthers on the right. Already Donald Trump has suggested he personally wants to inspect the certificate. Maybe he also wants to check out Obama's teeth to see if they're in good condition before he bids on him.
President Obama released proof of his citizenship ages ago, and did it again today after a renewed and intensive effort to undermine his legitimacy as an American and as the president of the United States. John Kerry ignored his Swiftboating and paid for it. I'm not sure that either approach—the high road or a direct response—100% works when the other side really and truly does not give a fuck about the truth.
(Surprisingly?) John Kerry takes the pitch-perfect approach on the way forward regarding selling health care reform—couch it in terms almost anyone would agree with and make it seem like Republicans would have to be heartless not to support it. This is how it should have been sold initially! Now...the big bill is dead meat. But there are rumblings that Pelosi will take the reconciliation route. I wish Pelosi were president. She has all the balls in the family.
