CNN's Lou Dobbs is under fire from the left for suggesting Obama release his original 'vault copy' birth certificate. Dobbs believes Obama is a citizen and doesn't see any reason why President Obama shouldn't release his long form birth record. He is refusing to be intimidated by groups on the left and has reiterated his belief that Obama should release the document.
"The left is trying to silence their opponents and their competitors in the public marketplace of ideas," he said on his radio show. "One issue in which the ethnocentric issue groups have been trying to silence me is on the issue of illegal immigration. Many of those, if you will, have migrated to me here recently because I, even though I said I believe the president is a citizen of the United States, I don't understand why he shouldn't produce a birth certificate. My God, you're talking about the third rail of American journalism, baby! That's it. I'm not going to back off."
