Eric Cantor Criticizes President Obama For Addressing Birth Certificate Controversy

With this morning’s shocking revelation by the White House of the long form birth certificate confirming that President Barack Obama was in fact born in Hawaii (gasp!), Fox News turned first for political reaction to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (gasp!) for his thoughts on this historic day when the entire nation can rejoice and celebrate the legitimacy of our president (hooray!) However, Mr. Cantor chose not to see this day as one to celebrate, rather, he shockingly took the view that President Obama should not be wasting the nation’s time on such a silly non-issue (gasp!)

America’s Newsroom host Bill Hemmer had Cantor on as guest and immediately asked Cantor for his reaction to the news of release of the long form birth certificate, and Cantor did not demure in his critique of the White House saying “I have criticized members of my own party for making this some kind of an issue and so I am really surprised that the White House is doing the same.”
