A FAKE (but way to keep that controversy alive, guys!), but still and all, doesn’t it say something that SOMEbody couldn’t resist putting lipstick on that pig?
Actually, I suspect the purpose of the delay was to defuse the issue for the long run. Obama’s established a precedent — you don’t have to prove your citizenship status to the People to run; you only have to satisfy the political establishment that it’s a no-win proposition to challenge you on the issue.
Next step is to moot the issue of citizenship altogether.
Anyone have an over-under for how many election cycles it will be before we elect an openly noncitizen without having amended the Constitution?
