Skip to comments.President Obama’s Chance for Easy Victory over the “Birthers” (with poll)
Posted on 12/12/2009 3:02:19 PM PST by STARWISE
This office offers no opinion on the merits of the controversy regarding President Obamas eligibility to hold office. Instead, we wonder why the President hasnt put an end to the controversy.
Amidst all the speculation, conspiracy theories, and lawsuits surrounding President Obamas original birth certificate, one obvious and valid question seems to stand out no matter which side of the debate one is on: why doesnt he just produce it? (And why hasnt anyone asked him this?)
The President has fought production of his original birth certificate in numerous lawsuits. In one, a U.S. Army Reserve major from Florida argued that his order to deploy to Afghanistan was potentially illegal because the Presidents eligibility to hold office has not been confirmed.
Instead of confronting the issue directly, the military revoked the soldiers deployment orders. These facts have added considerable fuel to the ongoing suspicion and debate.
Everyone appears to agree that President Obamas original birth certificate (not the short-form Certificate of Live Birth that has been produced) would end the controversy and the lawsuits and quiet the so-called birthers once and for all.
Are we missing something here?
We want to hear from you. Please explain below why you think President Obama has not produced or should not produce his original birth certificate. Please vote to the left.

Because he doesn’t have a COLB from the USA.
The Kenyan can’t produce a birth certificate because he doesn’t have one.
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
He was indeed born in Hawaii, and it does say so on his birth certificate.....but there is something else on it that he does not want to be known.
This citizenship issue is a constant scratch to relieve an itch when the real issue of concern is what Obama is doing to destroy our sovereign nation as an elected POTUS (elected legally or not).
I think he won’t produce the long form because it contains information that he considers embarrassing. I cam’t imagine what it is other than something that would discredit his autobiography.
Producing the long form will not resolve the controversy anyway.
LOL! Scuttlebutt has it there’s one being manufactured, complete with folds, signature stamp and seal. He just has to go to Hawaii to collect it.
The controversy works to Obama’s advantage, having nutters challenge you creates the appearance that much of his opposition is comprised of nutters and can be dismissed without the need to confront them. Why would any politician want to eliminate those who discredit themselves and in the process discredit other opponents?
This is a great collection of photo’s. Maybe some of my skeptical friends will appreciate them...THANKS
Mo has more jingle bells than he does.
You can’t produce what doesn’t exist. He’s a liar and a fraud. Nancy knew it from the beginning and she’s not about to take the fall.
Several news articles about the 2008 U. S. presidential election published in the African press, as well as a Chicago area newspaper article commenting on OBH’s election to the U. S. Senate, and all cited and linked in posts to FR, have described OBH as “Kenyan born.”
Were these reports liver sausage, or mythical?
Funny , that's not helping Obama's job approval numbers any and I doubt it will help him in the future.
How dare we ask for the unholy ghost to produce an earthly birth certificate.
With all that he is trying to do to the American People his numbers should be much worse, it may well be that the birthers are giving him a boost.
I doubt the “Birther” controversy is really helping Obama any. His poll numbers are very bad for just 11 months in office. You can expect obama to see his polling number crater into the 30s by early next year.
