Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) suggested Wednesday that questions over President Obama's birth certificate are a distraction from more pressing issues facing the nation, indicating that Obama's certificate of live birth should be enough to "settle" any questions.

During an interview with Bachmann on ABC's "Good Morning America," George Stephanopoulos held up a copy of the president's certificate of live birth, which the Obama camp presented during the 2008 presidential race.

Bachmann said the certificate, which has been rejected as not valid proof of Obama's birthplace by real estate mogul Donald Trump and other doubters, is good enough for her.  

Here's part of the Wednesday exchange between Bachmann and Stephanopoulos:

Stephanopoulos: Well I have the president’s certificate right here. It’s certified, it’s got a certification number. It’s got the registrar of the state signed. It’s got a seal on it. And it says 'this copy serves as prima facie evidence of the fact of birth in any court proceeding.'

Bachmann: Well, then that should settle it.

Stephanopoulos: So it’s over?

Bachmann: That’s what should settle it. I take the president at his word and I think — again I would have no problem and apparently the president wouldn’t either. Introduce that, we’re done. Move on.

Stephanopoulos: Well this has been introduced. So this story is over?

Bachmann: Well as long as someone introduces it, I guess it’s over.

Stephanopoulos: It’s right there.

Bachmann: Yeah, there you go. Because that is not the main issue facing the United States right now. The main issue facing the United States is dealing with our debt and our deficit.

During an interview Tuesday evening on Fox News, Bachmann said it was up to Obama to put an end to any questions voters might still have about his place of birth.

"All the Republicans are being asked to attest to the authenticity, and all I'm saying is there's only one person who can attest to the authenticity and that's the clerk of court in the county where he was born," Bachmann said Tuesday. "So everybody should run there, ask the clerk of court to solve this thing."
