Donald Trump is Big Winner in the Obama Birth Certificate Story


Chalk one up for “The Donald.” Say what you want about Trump but here’s the reality: When Trump speaks, people listen…and President Obama reacts.

There shouldn’t even be a debate here. Donald Trump wins because he FORCED this White House into releasing the birth certificate. Do you really think there is any other Republican contender for The White House that could have had the same success? Didn’t think so.

This is why Trump is resonating with many conservatives. He’s not ashamed to take on Obama with gusto, arrogance and yes, chutzpah (look it up!).

All the other candidates criticize Obama in a more seasoned, political way. It’s boring. Trump brings the heat. He is the “inside voice” of many conservatives in this country and truth be told, he actually may be the inner voice of many Independent voters in this country as well.

He’s the guy who says what you’re thinking. He’s the guy who says what other candidates are thinking, too. The difference is he has the guts to say it out loud and confront Obama to his face.

Let’s also remember something here. Donald Trump NEVER said Obama wasn’t born in this country. He said there were serious questions about it and he wanted answers. Well, he got those answers. From Obama. On national network television.

That’s power…and it ain’t coming from The White House.

One final point: This is yet another example of President Obama’s reactive “M.O.”

The “Method of Operation” in his presidency when it comes to foreign policy has been very reactive instead of proactive. On healthcare, he was reactive on that as well, waiting for others until he decided what to do. Entitlement reform? Same thing. And now he’s exhibiting the same behavior on this birth certificate issue.

Trump=proactive
Obama=reactive

Not good math for this president.

So, let me get this straight. The Don "FORCED" the president to prove you were wrong all along and you celebrate? Are you sure The Don is not also a secret socialist/muslim/anti-christ and has fooled you into a corner?

What brilliant political analysis, Brody. Let's elect Trump president and run the government like a corporation. God is a free market fundamentalist, after all.

Check out this hilarious new video on Youtube about Obama finally releasing his birth certificate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uhaEjaSDaQ . Whatever one might say about the issue, the bottom line is why in the world did Obama wait until this point to finally release this? If he was worried about the distraction from the real issues at hand and the nation's business, he would have done this a long time ago.

Donald Trump has a no-holds-barred-way of tackling issues and correcting them, that is why he is successful. You might not like him, but you sure can't ignore him! He stands his ground for truth, just like all of us should!

Mr. Brody I as a serious committed Christian I am embarrassed for you with this posting. How do you feel now after Trump's profanity laden speech last Thurs night and after Sunday's Obama victory over Osama bin Laden? Are you Christian enough to repent of your ill advised support of Donald Trump and ungodly malice towards the President? If not, then surely you are grieving the Holy Spirit!
