Gotta Watch: 'Birthers' here to stay

Even as the president jokingly proclaimed he was carrying an ID to prove his citizenship, it seems the "birther" movement just won't let up. These are the latest fiery interviews that seem to be fueling the movement.

'Blowhard and a phony' – Those are some strong words for Donald Trump from New York Times journalist Christopher Byron. Last night,  Trump continued to question President Obama while sparring with CNN's John King . This is Byron's fierce analysis of the feud.

Certificate just not enough – So many questions remain for conservative activist Joseph Farah, who is still not convinced that President Obama is a citizen even after the release of the birth certificate. And then there's the radio personality who claims "there's just something not right about it."

Can we please move on? – Probably not. Our Carol Costello talks to political contributors James Carville and Dana Loesch, who go head to head in this heated debate.

    Ya know if the President had just supplied this Birth Cert 2 years ago these folks wouldn't be at this point in there quest for the truth, it would have been nipped in the bud and now that we have seen it why didnt he show it back then,There is absolutely no reason to have hid it, SO that makes one feel it was deliberate. So why create this type of mess on purpose,
    A diversion?
    stupidity?
    for the fun of it, He did find it Bemusing to Opra, That shows a lack of sense in my opinion because a lot of folks in the country were pretty sure he was legit and a home grown American but just curious as to why he refused to show his Birth Cert, The he mocks and laughs at us for wondering about something hes paid lawyers to keep from view. and when we see it there want any reason to hide it in the first place, O yea your funny Mr President you really know how to when the hearts and minds of Americans, Yea create division that's the ticket!!!
    When it comes to Liberals who really knows. They believe themselves to be so smart and a lot of them are yet they don't have a lick of common sense.

    OBAMA is running as a canidate already. doesnt tht tell us tht he is only interested in control. He has no idea what he is doing. Bush did what he should off done. have u forgotten what it felt like when 9/11 happened. its called capturing or killing the ones who started this. PS forget this forget our differences as republicans and democrats. lets do what is right. I DONT CARE if u are from one party or the other dont LIE or CHEAT the people who work hard and ACTUALLY PAY TAXES

      Capturing or killing the ones who started this???? Who did we capture? And are you one of the lunatic fringe who thinks that Iraq was responsible for 9/11???? We had no more reason for invading Iraq than the rest of the world has for invading the USA.

    Why this "disbelief" a surprise to any? If you beleive in God [remember Granderson?] then you can beleive anything. "In god we trust" and we need no proof, we just know. Please please dont argue. Because we can make up reasons to believe? All Birthers are strict religious people, sounds like religious police of Iran. I am sure they will support addition of "stoned to death" as a punishment for fraud.

    All this birther stuff is just a simpleton's ploy to distract people from the political incompetence of the Teapublican Party. Smoke and mirrors, carnival hype, and a potent example of the dumbing down of the American electorate.

    "there's the radio personality who claims "there's just something not right about it.""

    In the minds of those people who think there is still something "not right" .... be honest.
    The problem they have is that there is a black man in the white house. End of story.
    It is racism pure unveiled and simple.

    Can we now please let the President get back to running the country with no distractions. ppl must be awfully ignorant that believe that anyone could get into Office of being President without a birth certificate. What would that say about the US and the ppl responsible for checking that out? Shame on you Donald Trump and anyone that believes u and all these lies.

    How many times does the POTUS have to show his GD certificate before the morons will believe him? He showed it when he declared his intention to run, and the birthsterds STILL are giving him a hard time! God, so the Birthsterds don't like him. I get it! But jeez, call a spade a spade already, and quit with the "I don't believe he's a US citizen, already! The people who keep harping on "he should have done this two years ago": HE DID!!!!!! Freaking ignoramus'!!!
