The president himself has hoped Republicans would continue to talk about it, thereby damaging their own credibility. It was a useful diversion. But take a look at recent polls. The problem was the view was taking hold among independents. He got worried it was about to spin out of control. He had the ability to release it last year and end the issue, but he wanted to play rope-a-dope with Republicans.

Karl Rove, bitching about Obama just now releasing his long-form birth certificate.

Look, pal, it’s not the president’s fault that over a third of your party believes the government can’t do anything right, except pull off a conspiracy that would take nearly fifty years of planning.

He released it in 2008, and it was the same one that everyone else would get if they requested their own birth certificate. Your party leadership fanned the flames because it was effective for fund-raising and redneck stroking. The GOP just wouldn’t let it die. Obama’s fault? Nope.

You appealed to the lowest common denominator and got trolled for it by Donald Trump. Thank you for creating THAT little monster.
