Obama and The Challenge from Carnival Barkers

Today, at about 9:45 a.m., the 44th President of the United States of America (Barack H. Obama) re-released his birth certificate to the American people.  No one was expecting this move.  Thus, it came as a shock to the American press.  So much so, that it was "Breaking News."  As stated by the President, he has not ever been able to secure a "breaking news" moment, thus far, while serving as President.  Just before the President made his announcement and juxtaposition, in a split-screen, Donald Trump (who has since fanned the flames of Birtherism), was responding to Obama's announcement.  He did this in New Hampshire, the state the holds the first Presidential primaries for the 2012 Presidential Election.  So of course this raises a level of speculation as to whether or not Donald Trump will make a run for president.

The juxtaposition comes at, while on the one hand, Obama acknowledged what had been a source of much inquiry since he ran for presidency two years ago.  Then on the other hand, he gently asked the American people, is this really what we should be focusing on.  This and many other statements were provided to the Press Corp, during a press conference at the White House.  In his usual fashion, President Barack Obama took the time to create a teachable moment regarding the theme of "what is and what ought to be" in his always adult, calm, and intellectual fashion.  Obama made his remarks and took no questions at the end.  He and his wife would later appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show, wherein follow ensued.  Of course all media outlets are a buzz with follow up, analysis, and inquiry.  More to come on this topic at a later date.  As for now, enjoy the concept that FACTS trumps FICTION.
