Well, that should put an end to the debate... or should it? The article goes on to say that "the question was raised during his campaign". If it was, then why wasn't the question answered satisfactorily then? And, if the issue was "silliness", why didn't Obama put a stop to the "silliness" long before now by producing the long form certificate? Or, perhaps it took this long for one to be created for him. A forged certificate? Heavens no! No upstanding, honorable politician would even consider creating a document where none previously existed. (Oh, my error... honorable and politician are mutually-excluding terms, and I have seen no proof that the two terms can logically be combined when describing a politician.)
The "citizen/non-citizen" debate was allowed to continue for so long, and there was major confusion reported - even among Obama's African relatives - regarding to his birthplace, that I can't help but think that anything is possible in this case. And, with sufficient money and power, anything IS possible.
We Americans are a gullible lot. We tend to believe those politicians who tell us the lies that we want to hear, and I suppose that is just human nature. Tell us that you're for something that we want ourselves, and we'll support you!
God save us from our own stupidity!
