Pawlenty to GOP: Stop the birtherism

Likely 2012 Republican presidential candidate, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, said Tuesday billionaire Donald Trump needs to stop questioning President Obama‘s birth location.

“I, for one, believe that we should not be raising that issue in the sense that I think President Obama was born in the United States,” Pawlenty said Tuesday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program. “I’m not playing into that.”

Indeed, Obama was born in the U.S. and has released his birth certificate publicly. It’s available at a website Organizing for America set up, called FightTheSmears.com, and has been vetted by various news agencies and government officials.

Those critics who say the birth certificate isn’t good enough call for the “long-form birth certificate,” although what the President released is the same document accepted for a citizen to verify their status as native-born for virtually anything.

Pawlenty stopped short of saying Trump wasn’t a serious candidate, and instead adopted a “wait-and-see” approach on if Trump’s latest attempt to stir speculation of a presidential run will culminate in a campaign..

Trump has spent the past week making appearances on various television outlets questioning Obama’s birth certificate and even called for an investigation of Gov. Neil Abercrombie (D-HI).

Prior to Abercrombie’s election, his predecessor, Republican Linda Lingle, also vouched for Obama’s citizenship. A birth announcement also exists from a local Hawaiian newspaper.

“You know what I get a kick out of? The governor of Hawaii says, ‘Oh I remember when he was born 50 years ago.’ I doubt it,” Trump said Monday on Fox & Friends. “I think this guy should be investigated. I doubt he remembers when Obama was born. Give me a break.”
