(Newser) – Donald Trump has operatives working on an important political mission. He has people in Hawaii probing President Obama's birth, "and they cannot believe what they're finding," The Donald notes ominously. Obama's family "doesn't know which hospital he was born in," and "in the hospital itself, there’s no records of his birth," Trump reported. "In other words, it doesn’t say how much they paid, where is the doctor, here’s your room bill," Trump told Today host Meredith Vieira. "If he wasn’t born in this country, he has conned the whole world."

And that's not all. If Trump chooses to seek the GOP nomination in 2012, he "will be better than anybody," he tells Vieira. "And, you may say, 'Oh, gee, that doesn't sound like George Washington.' Well, guess what? Before George Washington ran, he didn't sound like George Washington, either," said Trump. (Click to see how Trump ranked in a poll of possible GOP candidates.)

The problem with 'Birthers' and thr Right Wing in general is that their minds are so closed on the matter that even if someone came up with a HOME MOVIE of Obama being BORN they wouldn't believe it. Even if Obama were to produce an original 'birth certificate' of they kind they're looking for they won't believe it. They'll say it was faked or that the signatures don't look right or SOMEthing. You could interview the doctor who delivered him and they'd find a way to discredit him. I recall a line written in a book about the history of the Apocalypse written by Eugene Weber. He said "Facts have never stood in the way of BELIEF.(emphasis mine)' Birthers have made up their mind and no one on the face of the earth is going to change it. Also, unless I remember my Civics classes incorrectly, according to US law a child born of an American in another country IS CONSIDERED AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. If that's the case then it doesn't matter where Obama was born, he's STILL a citizen. Another point brought up by Jon Stewart is that you have to provide a valid birth certificate to even file to run for President. If he didn't have one, he couldn't have gotten on the ballot in the first place! I think the funniest part of this is that Turmp came up with his own 'birth certificate' and turns out THAT's not genuine. Anyone wanting to find out what the FACTS are can check it out on Factcheck.com.Even THEY're sick of the topic.
