There’s got to be some reason why he refuses to present it. Instead Obama spends millions of dollars preventing it’s release.

During his radio program, Dobbs stated: “[S]hould he produce his birth certificate — the long form, the real deal? Should he be a little more forthcoming? … What is the deal here?
