Michele Bachmann won't show her birth certificate

ABC
Michele Bachmann is a Birther again.
On a conservative talk radio show this week, Michele Bachmann declared that before her first presidential debate, she'd produce her birth certificate.

We figured, why wait until then? We sent her team a request to see the document.

So far, the Bachmann camp has not produced evidence that Bachmann is, indeed, an American citizen. Gasp!

Bachmann has been flirting with the birther movement for a while now. She even resisted Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos's request that she simply say whether she thinks Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen. After dodging the question at first, she finally blurted, "I think we should take the president at his word."

But she seemed to be back on the birther bus on The Jeff Katz Show this week, after Katz quipped that he had to show more paperwork for his kids to sign up for Little League than Obama did to run for president. Bachmann was sympathetic:

"I'll tell you one thing, if I was ever to run for president of the United States, I think the first thing I would do in the first debate is offer my birth certificate, so we can get that off the table."

She's not a birther, she just implies a lot.

But for all her bluster, Bachmann still has not produced the proof of her citizenship that City Pages requested. It's all starting to add up. She seems to have no knowledge of American history, having bungled  Revolutionary War  facts and completely forgetten about slavery. And isn't she oddly averse to airport security screenings? It doesn't look good.

This is just more Liberal crap. Michele Bachmann is a credit to this nation. Just take a look at who is in the white house now, that is if he is not on a vacation, playing golf or playing basketball. I don't hear the Democrats addressing why Obama spent his own personal funds to keep his birth certificate and college records from the public. And shouldn't there be at least a "what?" addressing a questionable copy of his birth certificate years after he was elected? I am a "birther" and see nothing wrong with verifying his birth claims or his college transcripts for that matter. I like knowing who my president really is!

What a pail of horse crap. Why should she show her private information to some left wing sycophant? If and when she ever gets a nomination to run for President THEN she would prove it to the proper authorities.

You have to prove you're a citizen before you're eligible for nomination,and since when is a birth certificate "private information?"

Rumors say that she's a maple leafer citizen. How sugery and sweet

I think the first thing I would do in the first debate is offer my birth certificate, so we can get that off the table.

Even if she did release it, who reads Klingon?

By the way, starting a sentence with "And" is very tacky. At least that is what I learned back in elementary school. Just a tip.

Funny how much nitpicking Jessica makes... I would be willing to bet that Bachmann would run circles around you with history and probably most other subjects. It's typical from your "mean spirited" camp to pick out simple mistakes and blow them up to somehow make the person look like an idiot because you have no substance to make a rational argument. Why should she entertain going out of her way to produce a birth certificate anyhow? There is no prerequisite for her to have natural born citizenship at this point. Obama does have that prerequisite so from the effort he made to get the half arsed document he did, why not have produced a legitimate one exercising the same amount of diligence? By the way Jessica, forgetten isn't a word. By your standards of Bachmann, you're an incompetent moron. Especially since this something you are attempting to make a living at... Shameful! lol! How embarrassing when there is something called spell check to assist people like you, or don't you know how to use it?

She knows little about history, and flubbed up the other day in Boston didn't she? She has no idea what she is talking about most of the time.

@Bob: Duh!!! Of course the US issues its "Hell" certificates. I mean, what else would you call this sack-o'-sh*t of a so-called country? ;)

She is most likely a KGB mole if she won't show her long form certificate. Haha. Now, I really don't believe that, as I am not as STUPID as the teabagger/afterbirthers on the right who are really dumb enough to believe that Kenyan shite.

She also doesn't believe in filling out your U.S. Census forms. It all adds up!

Michele Bachmann, The "constitution-loving tea partier" voted for the SECOND time in one week to extend the unconstitutional Patriot Act.

Anyone voting for this sell out needs to have their head examined

It would be ironic if Bachmann, upon realizing that she doesn’t have her own copy of her original birth certificate, discovers that Minnesota issues the same sort of COLB that Hawaii does?

These morons at City Pages are so obsessed with her because they are typical liberal snobs who think they know everything. BTW, she's not running for president so what fukcing difference does it make?

I think it's a pretty important point. I personally wouldn't want someone in office who can't adhere to the standards they set for others.

"T-Boner69"? Seriously? Ladies and Gentlemen, we have ourselves a winner. By the way T-Boner69, the correct spelling is "fucking" not "fukcing". With a name like that you would think you could at least spell that word correctly. Also, has she announced that she is not running? One can only hope.

Pot calling the kettle. Do not point the finger on spelling CP. Shame.

Um, I'm not in anyway associated with CP, just a reader. If CP as spelling issues that's their deal, not mine.

This was totally newsworthy...forget the nuclear reactors exploding and burning in Japan, this chick won't show a birth certificate! She makes me wish I wasn't an American...unless she isn't an American, then I'm proud to be an American...where at least I know I'm free(ish)

She must have finally read it herself,,I wonder WHAT could be wrong with it??

Just to make all things equal, not only should she show her birth certificate, we should all insist we don't believe it's real.

By bagger standards it won't be unless her Mother saved the original long form. Bachmann was born in Iowa where they only give you certified copies of the short form. Probably why she won't show it. I'm going to enjoy seeing the baggers come unglued when their state passes these birther bills and their candidates end up not being able to get on the ballot because they can't produce something the state doesn't issue.
