Michele Bachmann’s First Action As Pres. Candidate? Offer Her Birth Certificate

Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is not afraid to continue to beat the birth certificate drum as a criticism of President Obama. Appearing on the radio show of conservative host Jeff Katz, Bachmann didn’t bring up the birther issue, but when prompted by Katz with it, happily declared how she would be different than Obama.

Katz was amazed that his sons had to provide more documentation to play little league baseball than what he alleged Obama ever had to provide. Bachmann assured Katz how there won’t be any lingering questions with her:

“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.”

Bachmann’s repeated hesitation to affirmatively state that Obama is an American citizen might be why some observers dismiss Bachmann as not a serious contender for President. Yet since Bachmann’s willingness to go after Obama continues to generate headlines, might such a strategy make her a serious threat to the other potential candidates for the Republican nomination if she does decide to run for President?
