In case you want to see it for yourself:
Obama's Long Form Birth Certificate
I've got to give the president credit... well played, very well played indeed. And letting Trump take credit for getting him to release it is even more brilliant. I'm not being sarcastic here.
To My Fellow Conservatives,
If you didn't believe that Obama was a US citizen he has for several years now and continues to play you for the fools you are. His release of his birth certificate following Donald Trump's request was a brilliantly orchestrated political maneuver.
Yes this makes Donald Trump look good. He was able to do what no conservative pundit and no other GOP potential candidate was able to-- he got President Obama to release his long-form birth certificate. I bet he looks really good to you about right now. THAT is just what the President wants.
You may also have noticed that he's been praising Mitt Romney's "Romneycare" in Massachusetts. I bet many of you aren't too keen on Mitt these days. Some of you may find him to be a bit too moderate for your tastes. Again this is exactly what the President wants.
Now is the time for you to either remove your tin-foil chapeau or to steal away to your toolshed for a DIY rectal craniotomy. The president has just given the GOP two gifts! He's telegraphed 2 punches-- Who he DOES want to face in 2012 (Donald Trump) and who he doesn't (Mitt Romney).
Elections are won not by the conservative or liberal bases. Elections are won by moderate independent swing voters. Chances are you'll be voting for whomever the GOP nominates. And I'm guessing most of the folks over at Moveon.org will be either voting for Obama's re-election or whomever runs on the Green Party's ticket. We aren't the people the candidates are attempting to sway. As far as they're concerned our minds are made up. Obama and the eventual GOP nominee (whomever he/she may be) will be courting undecided voters.
Donald Trump is unelectable. Most of the moderates and independents do not take him at all seriously. If he were to win the GOP nomination we would essentially be giving Obama another 4 years in office wrapped up with a nice bow that resembles the Donald's hairstyle.
Mitt Romney IS however electable. Yes, I know he's a moderate. After all he was governor of that Liberal New England theme park known as Kennedyland (or more commonly referred to as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts). Massachusetts does not elect conservatives. In order for a republican to be elected governor there he/she would have to be at least a moderate if not a liberal republican. I know that some of Romney's moderate views don't necessarily jive with all of your political beliefs. But do we want to nominate someone whose views may be closer to ours but could not/would not win in the general election (the Donald) or do we nominate someone who actually has some chance of defeating Obama in the general election (Romney)?
Another thing to keep in mind-- even if you agree more with Trump's politics than Romney's. Donald Trump is a notorious self-promoter. If he does end up running for President it won't be for the betterment of the country, it will be for his own self-promotion. Is he really the kind of man you would want running our country?
Just some food for thought!
Your fellow conservative,
