I've heard that "strategy" as well and if it is in fact his strategy, he is foolish. It is a childish game and he should be above it. Folks
who are adamantly apposed to the "birther" movement fundamentally don't care where he is born. He is the gent bring forth Hope and Change and a
minor matter such as the constitution is immaterial to them.
You can not even sign your kids up for youth sports in many places in this country (every place I've lived) without showing a valid, long form birth
certificate. Certainly if it is important enough to validate that a 10 year old is not playing with 8 year olds, giving him/her an unfair advantage
than it is certainly reasonable to suggest that an individual demonstrate that they are in fact eligible to hold the Presidency.
If in the heat of the election he comes out with the document, he will absolutely look like a childish fool and that too will back fire against him.
The time for that game was over after the last election. He could have come out with it and took the wind out of the sails for a portion of the Tea
Party, yet he waited and now, no matter what he does, to the extent that he releases it, he looks like a petulant child. To the extent that he can
not, doubts will continue and with a high profile person like Trump continuing to ask the question will certainly broaden the group of folks who have
doubts of his eligibility.
