    Since President Obama's mother was a U.S. citizen, does it even matter where he was born? I thought children born to a U.S. mother were automatically granted U.S. citizenship. It seems there is ample proof the President has a genuine Hawaiian birth certificate; need to stop giving this subject air time.

    Send the information to Donald Trump, Sarah Palin and all of the other doubting Thomas's out there. Lets put the issue to rest and get on with real life problems in this country.

    Could the remarks against President Obamas birth certificate be racial motivated?

    I agree with Jeff Toobin, while most logical people should let the President’s release put their concerns to rest, there still remains those like Glenn Back, who chose to disregard facts and evidence to “search our feelings for the truth.” And unfortunately these people will never be satisfied.

    Since when does the President of the United States have to feel pressured to cowtow to a rich nobody? I understand that Obama is being the "better man" by trying to put this to rest; however, now Trump is parading around like a peacock saying that he was able to accomplish what others couldn't in getting the President to release his birth certificate. When will the media learn? You have all created the Trump beast and given him the sense of power he currently feels. It is time to cut off Trump completely, not give him any credibility whatsoever. The guy is a self-serving megalomaniac who does not give one hoot about the state of our country. Enough Trump! Stop giving him air time and perhaps he will just go away.

    Donald Trump TRUMPED UP these charges against President Obama for publicity only. HE needs to provide HIS birth certificate and FINANCIAL INFORMATION as he promised!! The only thing HE accomplished is making a FOOL of himself and destroying ANY possibility of regaining the public's trust. If HE was president, would HE choose HIS priorities like THIS???? He's a jerk and a joke.

    In my opinion, Donald Trump makes himself look like an idiot for getting on television and bragging that HE accomplished what nobody else could do. HE made Obama reveal his birth certificate. If Obama had been born outside of the U.S., it certainly would have come to light long before this. Shame on Donald Trump. This certainly doesn't make him President material.

    For the "Duck" to give himself credit for the release of this document is plain stupid, childish and idiotic. Who is he, to even try to determine if the document is authentic when most Americans want to move on. I lost every respect that I had for this man. Why has the media allowed this man to get away with lies after lies after lies? He is an insult and a disgrace to all Americans except the wackos.

    I do not like Obama however I think this birther thing was stupid and a waste of time. I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii as well in 1981 and even all 3 of my certificates say on the top, "Certificate of Live Birth". I respect Trump but now that the original document is released, lets move on. Lets move on to more important issues even though NOW America knows that Obama was born here in the USA. About time he released the document.

    If people would stop trying to dog the President and try to help him this country would be alright. Remember what Kennedy said. Ask not what your country can do for you Ask what you can do for your country. That would help us all. Birth certificate is not important. Jobs are important. Safety is important. What are all the complainers doing. Tell them to go somewhere and keep there mouth closed. We all need to work together.

    Trump must be drunk on his arrogance, if he thinks the american public would elect him as President. He has a better chance of growing hair on his head than becomming President. President O'bama would love to have Trump as the republican nominee. We are not that stupid.

    Mr. Trump, The president didn't release his birth certificate because he like all Americans has a right to privacy. I have my doubts how real your interests are in bringing this issue back up and hope the president will stand up for his right to privacy against what ever witch hunt you choose to go on next. In America our rights are sacred.

    For the second time in my lifetime we have a President that tells the truth. I guess a lot of you haters can't handle the truth. I would like to have said the same for ex President's Bush,he seemed to lie everytime he opened his mouth. I started following politic's after 9/ll,im so burnt out on all the fighting that goes on between both parties. Who cares if you are a Republican or Democrat,you are there for the american people,period! Your job is to make it better for all american's,not just Big Business and the Wealthy. CNN,would you please put Donald Trump to rest,enough is enough! It's clear to me that the President want's to do the best for all american's,but we know it's not just him,we have something called Congress. The President OF U.S.,is asked 2 plus years later to show his birth certificate,Really! Nobody can blame THE PRESIDENT for forfeiture of social privilege,wartime hardships or the economic mess,he inherited it. So please,stop giving people like Donald Trump and others like him who try and media lynch THE PRESIDENT,don't be a player the that.P.S When is Kyra Phillips coming back,loved her spin on the news!

    Why does Donald Trump think he knows all the answers. Someone needs to dig into his past and see what a mess he has been to get to where he is and he really is nothing just someone with a tupe who got his luck from his father who didnt know how to handle his money and has been broke before. As Obama said there are more important things to deal with right now in this country to have to worry about where the president was born. Its rediculous that this country can allow ANYONE to run as governer or president. First, Arnold who is an actor becomes a governer and then Donald wants to run our country. Why not just let the rich and famous who are all into drugs, sex, alchohol run the whole country and see how they are going to do a better job. Bush spent 8years ruining the country and now they expect someone else to come in and fix it all up in 2 years or so? Americans are such ignorant people. I will dig dirt on Donald to show him he is less than everyone else in this country if he had no money, he would have nothing.

    Eating foods rich in probiotics is the best way to make sure you’re keeping your gut flora healthy, however, people with dietary restrictions may need to supplement. When choosing a probiotic supplement, just make sure it contains high quality cultures and bacterial cultures that would naturally be found in the human intestines.

    I have to get across my passion for your kindness in support of men and women that actually need guidance on this particular subject matter. Your very own commitment to getting the message all through had been wonderfully productive and have in every case made those like me to get to their desired goals. Your new invaluable facts means a great deal to me and substantially more to my fellow workers. With thanks; from all of us.

    I do believe all of the concepts you've introduced on your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for newbies. May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
