Stephanopoulos: Well I have the president's certificate right here. It's certified, it's got a certification number. It's got the registrar of the state signed. It's got a seal on it. And it says 'this copy serves as prima facie evidence of the fact of birth in any court proceeding.'
Bachmann: Well, then that should settle it.
Stephanopoulos: So it's over?
Bachmann: That's what should settle it. I take the president at his word and I think -- again I would have no problem and apparently the president wouldn't either. Introduce that, we're done. Move on.
Wow, how quickly Bachmann folded, doesn't she know that the COLB (Certificate of live birth) has been challenged and suspected to be a fake, even the one on Fact Check?
Unbelievable, she doesn't know that this was presented on the Internet and on Fact Check already and its authenticity has been challenged. Further does she not realize that in many states you can aquire a COLB,even if you were not born in that state, what it does is merely say, you were born, you exist, it does not necessarily mean that you were born in that state or even born in the United States?
With all do respect Represenative Bachmann, I expect a Presidential candidate to have some fortitude. Because Stephy shows you a copy of a COLB that has questioned authenticity does not settle the issue, if it had it wouldn't be an issue now. I have lost a lot of faith in Michelle Bachmann, can you imagine what is going to happen if she throws her hat in the ring and they start interviewing her, she'll fold like a house of cards, just like Palin did.
If President Obama would allow the presentation of his long form birth certificate that supposedly exists in Hawaii this would be over as far as the birth certificate and being born in the United States issue stands. However, the real issue is that BHO's father was not an American citizen, therefore BHO was not constitutionally qualified to be President.
