ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA, AUGUST 4TH, 2008, QUESTIONED OBAMA'S ELIGIBILITY
Let's not forget that the first "Birther" of note, was Bill Clinton. "Birther" is the derogatory appellation used by Obama supporters to ridicule those who ask why Obama won't show his birth certificate.
Late last night, The Post & Email published the results of recent investigation of the issue, by a citizen journalist, which explain that the Hawaii Department of Health knows Obama's alleged birth certificate (displayed on the Internet as an electronic image of a Certification of Live Birth) is a forgery.

He made these comments on Good Morning America. You can view the video here.
The comment was mentioned by the Associated Press, in an unsigned report filed the same day: "I never was mad at Sen. Obama," the former president said.
