In his first interview since being sworn in as Speaker of the House, John Boehner makes it clear he has no questions about President Obamas birth, saying the State of Hawaii has said President Obama was born there. Thats good enough for me.
In the exclusive interview with NBCs Brian Williamsset to air tonight on NBC Nightly NewsBoehner does not say hell tell members of Congress to simply put the matter of the presidents birth aside:
WILLIAMS: Im curious as to how much responsibility you feel specifically because of something that happened this morning. During the reading of the Constitution, Congressman Frank Pallone of New Jersey was reading a portion of the document, interrupted by someone who heckled from within the chamber. It was to express doubt over the Presidents American citizenship. Provided you believe the President is an American citizen, youve got 12 members co-sponsoring legislation that does about the same thing, it expresses doubt. Would you be willing to say, This is a distraction, Ive looked at it to my satisfaction. Lets move on.
BOEHNER: The state of Hawaii has said that President Obama was born there. Thats good enough for me.

That is the key phrase. Just being an American Citizen does not mean Natural Born.
Hey John..... psssssst: Trust but VERIFY. Capache?
Yeah, me too; now, lets talk about Natural Born Citizenship status.
It’s not just about the birth records. Everything about his past is a closed book. Obama is hiding something big.
Great tears, though.
10 minutes into his role of Speaker of the House and ....
He goes and wimps out with this lame-*** asnswer.
Now that Bohner “knows” Barry was born in Hawaii, perhaps he should look into what a Natural Born Citizen IS.
Come on John! It’s just the future of this NATION on the line.
Republicans are the same as Democrats. This is more proof of it. No change at all in Congress.
There probably needs to be a third party for positive change.
Uh ... no. Williams was trying to trap him into something and Boehner countered. I thought it was a good diversion. The following statement by Boehner pretty much shows that he was giving Williams a non-answer.
I say “good shot.” Doesn’t look like he’s gonna fall for reporter traps.
Both parties suck and all we saw today was a DOG & PONY show at the expense of the taxpayer/slave.When will people in America get it?
If Boehner would have said anything, that would become a huge distraction. That wasn’t the time nor the place to make this an issue.
I agree, the reporter figured he had him trapped...good answer.
Sometimes I wonder if the person in the WH may not even be the same person who was born BHO.
Good shot? Nope. Not even. Boehner might have well said
NANCY PELOSI Has Said President Obama Was Born There. Thats Good Enough For Me.
Who cares what someone said. Can we not see proof? I’m one of millions who will kick in the 10 bucks it would cost to get the vault copy.
Only the long form should be good enough. Bone-head screwed up.
Bohner’s smart ... he’s playing chess ... looking at the big picture ... undoubtedly the episode in Congress today was a “classic” setup
He effectively ended the Williams attack and moved on. It was a good shot.
Thats Good Enough For Me
