United States President Barack Obama was initially reluctant to address the questions raised about whether he was born in the United States, which were discussed most prominently and vigorously by “birther” and real estate magnate Donald Trump.
But now the president has addressed the issue after relentless discussion in the media by other self designated “birthers” by releasing his long form birth certificate. As an encore to the conclusion of the debate over his place of birth, which the president called a silly sideshow put on by “carnival barkers”, the 2012 presidential campaign to reelect Mr. Obama has released something else – T-shirts which on the front show a picture of President Obama and the line “Made in the U.S.A.” under it. The back of the T-shirt displays a copy of the president’s long form birth certificate.
The Obama for America presidential campaign body, which is providing the T-shirts, is also offering similar mugs.
