Question: Is The 'Birthers' Issue Settled?

With this morning's release of President Obama's "long-form" birth certificate, a question occurs:

Is this going to settle once and for all the questions that those in the so-called birthers movement kept raising?

As we reported earlier, one of the most vocal of those who've been insisting that the president needed to do more to prove he was born in the U.S. didn't exactly say he's ready to drop the issue after the White House released the birth certificate.

"I want to look at it, but I hope it's true," said Donald Trump, the developer and reality TV host who has been making noises about running against the president in 2012.
