The White House today released President Barack Obama’s birth certificate under the orders of the President himself. Obama also gave a briefing to the press announcing the release of his birth certificate and a Presidential scolding for the press for concentrating on “silly” things rather of issues that concern the nation’s future.
Looks like the President really lost his patience this time. He said the only reason he came down to this level to release his birth certificate was because the media were concentrating more on this “silliness” even at the critical time of a possible government shutdown. While the president and the congress were working out on a budget to decrease the deficit and at the same time work towards development. The whole media didn’t give it the attention it deserved. He said he wanted people to discuss about it and bring out their ideas but all the media wanted to talk about was his birth certificate.
Obama began his five-minute statement with the complaint that he wouldn’t be able to get the networks to break into their regularly scheduled programming for a speech on policy proposals.
“I know that there is going to be a segment of people for which no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest,” Obama said. “But I am speaking for the vast majority of the American people as well as for the press. We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We have better stuff to do. I have got better stuff to do. We have got big problems to solve.”
“We are not going to be able to do it if we are distracted, we are not going to be able to do it if we spend time vilifying each other … if we just make stuff up and pretend that facts are not facts, we are not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by side shows and carnival barkers,” the president declared earlier.

And here is his birth certificate:
I totally agree with Obama. Americans need to concentrate on things that really matter.
