As most of you know by now, President Obama released his Hawaiian birth certificate and calling questions about the authenticity of the  document a distraction from bigger issues by “sideshows and carnival  barkers.”  He told reporters, “We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do,” Obama said. “We’ve got big problems to solve, and I’m confident we can solve them, but we’re going to have to focus on them, not on this.”

You know he’s right. He should focus on the stuff that is now on his plate.

  1. Gasoline prices that are over $4 a gallon in some parts of the United States
  2. Sell his plan to cut tax breaks for oil and gas companies
  3. Convince Congress to raise the debt ceiling before the U.S. hits its limit, likely in mid-May
  4. Shake-up his national security advisers
  5. Juggle wars and ongoing protests in the Middle East
  6. Negotiate a 2012 budget that both creates jobs and cuts spending

But what is he doing today? He is heading to Chicago to help his pal Oprah Winfrey wrap up her syndicated talk show.
Then he is going to New York with his first fundraising sweep of the city with three Democratic Party fundraisers.

Yup, that’s more important “stuff” to do. Run the country – nah – that’s next week when Congress is back in session. No wonder he wasn’t invited to the royal wedding he’s such a busy, busy guy.
