While there is in many Americans’ hearts and minds some doubt remaining as to Obama’s status as a “natural born citizen” and, hence, his eligibility to be POTUS, there can now be no doubts whatsoever as to why Obama chose to respond to Donald Trump’s demands for him to produce his “long form” birth certificate.

Yes, for a mere $25 functionally anonymous donation Obama’s supporters across the globe can purchase this shirt from Obama’s campaign website. For $15, they can get a coffee mug. Both shirt and mug feature the image of Obama’s birth certificate.
Americans have to remember that, to Obama, everything is about the election campaign; that’s his sole comfort zone. Almost anything he or his coterie due is founded upon that simple truism.
Obama and his campaigners know that Obama’s base has weakened since he took office. They also know that it’s far easier to get their supporters fired up to fight against the American people than to get the majority of them to fight for Obama – and they don’t have President Bush to blame and malign anymore.
On the brighter side, such a t-shirt would be considered a “fixed distinctive marking, visible from a distance” and, hence, a small step towards honesty.
No doubts remain. Obama’s long belated release of his birth certificate was solely about Alinsky-esque election politics, specifically the politics of pandering, provocation, and division.
Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. 😉
