Trump Dogs Obama

Trump takes credit for having gotten Obama to release his long-form birth certificate. The right can't have it both ways -- either Obama was correct to release the birth certificate, or he was not. What's profoundly two-faced is to dog Obama with ridiculous rumors and then criticize him for addressing them. Trump is correct: he himself is responsible for having made this a front-burner issue -- and voters should hold him accountable for that.

Now Trump is moving on to whether Obama really earned his acceptance into Columbia and Harvard. The new mantra is "Release the Grades!" (BTW, Obama graduated magna cum laude.) In the name of all that is holy, please let us hold the Trumps of the world accountable for these distractions and stop blaming the victims of baseless smear campaigns.
