The US President Barrack Obama finally comes forward to rule out all controversies about his birthplace. Right from the presidential campaign there have been allegations made by the opposition doubting and questioning about Obama being a rightful candidate for the presidential post.
The White House has released a formal long form version of birth certificate showing that President Obama was born in Honolulu. Obama expressed his bewilderment over the queries over his birthplace. During campaigns, he had repeatedly tried to calm the voters assuring that he was a rightful candidate for the presidential post and was a legitimate native of the United States. He stated that the rivals spread the rumor in order to pull some extra votes.
Talking about the economic slump, which the United States is still struggling with, Obama stated that there were more serious matters to be thought over and no one had time to discuss such things.
According to a recent poll conducted by the CBS/New York Times, one fourth of the American population was still found under conservative influence doubted Obama’s constitutional legitimacy to be the president of the country and think that he was born outside.
This made Obama rethink over his stand on the issue. Admitting that the rumor was not doing any good to the country, he clarified the matter by releasing an official birth certificate, stated White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer on its website.
