    and I mean your comment.  This revelation is not an attempt to appease morans -- it is a full-on attack on the TM and Republican Party which has to dance around this issue because their growing base are fucking idiots.

      And I'm 100 percent certain his actions today will have the intended effect. He's released the long-form, so no one will ever again question his heritage or that he's a "Real 'Merican." There will be no more attacks from Fox News or Rush Limbaugh. There will be no more false equivalence on cable news.

      Just like compromising on health care guaranteed that no one would ever call it "socialized medicine." And just like caving on Gitmo and telecom immunity guaranteed that no would ever question his national security credentials. And just like caving on the Bush tax cuts guaranteed that no one would ever again call him a "tax and spend liberal."

      Yes, appeasement always works, doesn't it?. If you give the bully your lunch money, I'm sure he has zero incentive to come back tomorrow.

        The president knows full well that the release of the document will surely not be enough for those who are far off the deep end.  He said so himself in this morning's statement.

        If anything, it will force the birthers and some Republicans to move the goal posts and further isolate them from reality.  And if they want to continue on the same road, attaching themselves to Trump and real Republican candidates, that's good for Democrats.  Releasing even more evidence that the birthers are out to lunch can't hurt.

        If the president was appeasing anyone, it was the braindead media who parrots everything Donald Trump has to say.  He sharply criticized them for paying attention to "sideshows" and "carnival barkers."
