RealClearPolitics - Video - Donald Trump: Obama Possibly A Muslim

I do agree with Karl Rove on this one.  If Donald Trump tries to make an issue of Obama's birth, he will only be falling into a trap laid by Obama to marginalize everything else Trump might otherwise have to say on the serious issues facing the country.  Obama may or may not have been born in HI, although it's very difficult for me to credit the notion he was not, since his birth was announced within three days of his birth in a Hawaiian newspaper.  His hippie Mom planned for him to be President one day?  She birthed the kid in Kenya, smuggled the baby into Hawaii and then gave the newspaper a false report, knowing one day that the kid who would be President needed to be a born citizen? 

More probably Obama's birth certificate says he's a Muslim.  There must be some reason why Obama will not show it and has spend millions in legal fees to prevent others from obtaining information about his birth and about his academic record at Harvard, his teaching record at Chicago.

But arguing that Obama is not an American citizen is debating about how to put toothpaste back in the tube.  It's a gigantic time-waster and an excellent way for Obama to derail his opposition in 2012, that is, if his opposition falls into that particular trap.
