Blaming Obama for the Birth-Certificate Nonsense

More

Since nobody believes that birthers are going to be satisfied with President Obama's release of his long-form certificate of live birth--the document they've claimed doesn't exist--it'll be interesting to see how Republicans who want to continue currying favor with this sizable bloc of their base will react to the news. Here's my guess for the likely pivot: blame the messenger. I expect we'll soon hear a chorus of folks echoing what Newt Gingrich just said: "All I would say is, why did it take so long? The whole thing is strange."
