Glenn Beck apology for Obama birth certificate eligibility insults?, TheBlaze covers Trump birth certificate and Obama controversy, Glenn Beck apologize to Americans
“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans
“It is a little bit odd there were hospitals named after Mr Obama in Ghana, but none in New York.”…Michael Cohen, Donald Trump attorney
I have been an outspoken critic of Glenn Beck for insulting millions of Americans for questioning Obama’s birth certificate and his eligibility for the presidency. Will Glenn Beck be drawn to the “Dark Side”, as exemplified by this article from Media Matters?
“I’m sure it will be just a matter of time now before Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck take to the Fox News airwaves to ridicule Donald Trump, who’s been out making easy headlines peddling the debunked birther conspiracy theory.
I’m sure O’Reilly and Beck will take aim at Trump, even though the rest of Fox News is cheering the misguided billionaire on, because, as Media Matters has noted, both Fox hosts are on the record condemning the birth certificate talk.”
“Beck has been even more pronounced in his condemnations:
Everybody says, “why is Barack Obama not just producing the birth certificate?” Ok, first of all, he did. And you’re never going to get, you’re never going to get a conspiracy theory to stop. You’re never.
Do you really think that that’s the most pressing issue today, that that’s the one, that’s the one that’s gonna bring this guy down. Really? That one — The birther issue. It’s the biggest waste of time I have ever, ever seen.
And these people, no matter who they are, it could be a Republican, it could be George Bush. It doesn’t matter. Lindsey Graham, I don’t care who it is. These people must not excuse birthers.”
Or, will Glenn Beck be drawn to the “Force”, the light and the truth?
Is this Beck’s way of apologizing?

““I really believe there’s a birth certificate… Why doesn’t he show his birth certificate? … I wish he would,” Trump told his female hosts. “If you’re going to be the president of the United States, [the Constitution] says very profoundly that you have to be born in this country… There’s something on that birth certificate [Obama] doesn’t like.””

““The fact is they asked John McCain for his birth certificate,” Trump told “Fox & Friends” yesterday. “They’ve asked others for their birth certificate. They asked Bush for his birth certificate, by the way, I just found out over the weekend. And they would ask me for my birth certificate.”
It seems even after yesterday “they” are still asking.
It’s interesting that Trump continues to bring this issue up. The Left loves to paint so-called “birthers” as crazy right-wing wackos. But as a household name, Trump obviously has a public bully pulpit similar to figures like Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin who try and avoid the issue.
Does it suggest Trump will make a run for the White House? Not necessarily, but the man’s logic is hard to argue with… unless you‘re like Goldberg and quickly dismiss the enforcement of the Constitution’s residency requirement as “BS” aimed at attacking America’s first black president.”

“After failing to release his actual birth certificate yesterday — but saying he did — Donald Trump took a second stab at it today. And it appears he got it right.
This time Trump’s camp sent an “official” birth certificate to ABC News in an attempt to correct his previous error. This is what it the new one looks like:”
“That’s a lot different than a hospital certificate of live birth, and Trump’s camp acknowledged as much in a memo to ABC:
“A ‘birth certificate’ and a ‘certificate of live birth’ are in no way the same thing, even though in some cases they use some of the same words,” wrote Trump staffer Thuy Colayco in a message to ABC News. “One officially confirms and records a newborn child’s identity and details of his or her birth, while the other only confirms that someone reported the birth of a child. Also, a ‘certificate of live birth’ is very easy to get because the standards are much lower, while a ‘birth certificate’ is only gotten through a long and detailed process wherein identity must be proved beyond any doubt. If you had only a certificate of live birth, you would not be able to get a proper passport from the Post Office or a driver’s license from the Department of Motor Vehicles. Therefore, there is very significant difference between a ‘certificate of live birth’ and a ‘birth certificate’ and one should never be confused with the other.”
It’s worth noting that the memo could come across as suggestive — insinuating that maybe what Obama has been using is the certificate of live birth instead of an actual birth certificate. Key word, “could.”
That begs the question: was this part of Trump’s plan all along?”
Glenn Beck and TheBlaze.com, this is a good start.
However, Glenn Beck, when you make a mistake, and you made a big one, fess up, apologize and move on. You owe the American people an apology.
