At the very least, I believe that there is something embarrassing and/or at variance with Obama’s stated facts about himself - something he very much does not want the public to see.

Whether it renders him ineligible for office remains to be seen. But it's hard to avoid the conclusion that the information would be extremely damaging if released, and demonstrate that Obama is a liar. Why else not release the information?

"Whether it renders him ineligible for office remains to be seen."

Let's not forget, first and foremost, Barry could never be a Natural Born Citizen....even if he were born in D.C. itself! Here's why:

Barry was a British subject at birth (something he openly acknowledges).

Our 'founding fathers' and framers of our Constitution were British subjects at birth.

Our founders and framers obtained citizenship (NOT natural born though) via the Declaration of Independence.

Our founders and framers knew that they did not meet the 'Natural Born Citizen' clause in Article II section I.

So....what did they do?

They wrote in the 'or' part of the requirement.

Article II section I (in part) says: "No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President"

'Natural Born Citizen' means...AT birth, not attained latter in life!

They grandfathered themselves into the requirement. If they hadn't done that, the first time our young country could have possibly have had a 'Natural Born' President, would have been 1811! 1776 (Year of Independence) + 35 years. Obviously a problem.

And, obviously Barry wasn't around at that time (of the adoption of the Constitution), so he does not fit the 'or' part like our founders did. Both were British subjects at birth and therefore both do not (did not) fit 'Natural Born' citizen requirement.
