In a final attempt to put the “birther” issue to rest, the White House on Wednesday released President Obama’s long-form birth certificate. Still, many — including Republican congressional leaders, presidential conteders and well-known birthers — were able to find fault with his actions in the aftermath of the release.

In a flurry of statements released after Mr. Obama’s Wednesday’s remarks regarding the issue – which he described as a “silly” distraction being propagated by “sideshows and carnival barkers” – Republicans slammed the president for everything from wasting his time on the issue to having taken too long in addressing it straight on.

“All I would say is, why did it take so long?” wondered potential GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, in an interview after Mr. Obama’s remarks.

Sarah Palin, meanwhile, applauded Donald Trump for “forcing” the matter.
