Bill Clinton Dismisses Obama Birth Questions as 'Ludicrous'

By    |   Tuesday, 05 Apr 2011 03:57 PM

In recent media appearances, possible presidential candidate Donald Trump has questioned whether President Barack Obama was born in this country and has demanded that Obama make public a birth certificate to prove it. That has served to push the issue, a longtime issue among politicians and activists who have wondered why Obama hasn’t released his official birth certificate, back to the forefront of public debate.

But former President Bill Clinton says the argument that Obama was born outside the United States is ridiculous, Politico reports.

“If I were them, I’d be really careful riding that birther horse too much,” he said in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” that aired Monday. “Everyone knows it’s ludicrous.”

Questioning Obama’s birthplace might attract some conservative voters, but “a very different America” votes in presidential elections than in midterm congressional elections, Clinton said.
