Bachmann: Obama has neglected to prove eligibility
‘All he had to do is just answer some questions and show his document’
“It’s an interesting issue that has gone on for so long and it’s one that the president could have solved very early on,” Bachmann told Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro last night.
“All he had to do is just answer some questions and show his [long-form birth] document and then have people do an attestation that this in fact is a legal document and it’s over, it’s done. And I think the president has neglected to focus on answering that question for people, and that’s why a lot of people still have it lingering in their minds. None of us can prove, none of us can do attestation. Only the president and someone who is legally tasked with attesting to the validity of that document can do that, and I think that’s what the president should do.”
Bachmann, who is considering her own run for president next year, said, “One thing I know is that people have weighed President Obama in the balance, and he’s been found wanting. I think we have a real opportunity to win back the White House. And it’s not about again a political party winning, it’s about taking the country back. That’s the bigger issue, and I really think it’s going to happen in 2012.”
