Posted on 06/09/2008 5:44:28 PM PDT by inkling
Here's an odd Obama controversy I hadn't yet heard about. Apparently, the Lamb of Chicago has not released his Hawaii birth certificate despite several media requests. Jim Geraghty thinks it would end several persistent rumors concerning his birth.
Although Geraghty makes some good points, Exurban League's research interns have uncovered several reasons Obama is keeping it under wraps.
Top Ten Reasons Obama Won't Release His Birth Certificate
10. Despite the claims of his supporters, it was not technically a virgin birth.
9. Full name is Ayatollah Mubarack Hussein Obama-Khomeni bin Laden.
8. Actual birth date would reveal he's a Virgo, and those people are %#&*@! CRAZY.
7. Accidentally shredded it while going through his Rezko mortgage records.

He is a citizen of Kenya?
Re # 8.
We Vigoians, Virginians, whatever you want to call us: yes, weez %&U%$&*&&^^ CRAZY!
Wouldn’t that be something if true....
If it's because he's a bastard, that's no big deal: Billyblytheclinton is a bastard, and it didn't stop him.
Scumbags like Obama always got something to hide.
He’s probably got “Muhammed” as one of his middle names.
Might not be too far from the truth.
I like number 9.
There are a lot of interesting possibilities. It is posible his mother was legally married to his father because he was already married, so his last name should be Dunham. Maybe he doesn’t want people to know his first name is really Barry and he adopted a Muslim name later.
Parents listed as islamic fundamentalist.
You would think at the very least documents such as his birth certificate would be required to be available for the public to see.
As far as being a bastard... it looks like that’s become the standard for the Dems when they choose a candidate.
aren’t county courthouse records public??
You certainly have to produce one to be able to volunteer to lay your life down for your nation in the military.
At the least, a Commander-in-Chief should have to share THAT.
So THAT'S my problem!!! I never knew!!
Shouldn’t that be an easy thing to get a hold of? Here all you need is your name, date of birth, and the $$ for the copy.
Wow, could this be true?
“Barack Obama is not legally a U.S. Natural-born citizen according to the law on the books at the time of his birth, which falls between “December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986? . Presidential office requires a natural-born citizen if the child was not born to two U.S. Citizen parents”
Don’t know if I can post all of it but it is interesting reading.
Do we know, unequivically, that he IS an American citizen. . .Or. . . is he even younger than the already ‘youngest’ candidate. . .
According to the article linked to this article here:
“Reporters have asked for it and been denied, and the state of Hawaii does not make such records public.”
See my post 20.
And did he sign up for Selective Service?
Why is this coming. . .soooo late? Interesting. . .(Hillary getting this stuff out?)
More likely, the birth certificate lists his religion as Muslim!
No, it’s not mandatory to have a birth certificate. However, birth records are public records, and any researcher can search the registers.
Otherwise; we will have more Candidates from Hawaii...with Mexican accents, coming up the Demrat ranks.
That’s a good question. How can he be sworn in if congress don’t know that is actually eligible?
But I venture that its probably a trap. He holds it off in the hopes that the GOP makes a big deal out of it and then when he releases it its all OK. I can’t imagine that his party would let him get this far without assurance.
The only way to avoid the trap is to let Bob Barr do the muckraking on behalf of the Libertarian party, possibly attempt to have his name stripped from ballots in several of the 50 states on the grounds that he has not proven his eligibility. Hey, maybe he’s really only 29 years old?
I would; but think they are tired of hearing suggestion from me. . .so will give it a rest; though, not for long, of course.
Doesn’t being born in the US make you Natural Born?
George Soros can accomplish the seeimingly impossible. Perhaps he has. . .
Yeah perhaps there is another way to obtain it - the Selective Service should have a copy, as should the State Department (I presume he has an American passport in which case he needed to prove his citizenship).
There should be at least 3 places to find it.
And if Mr “I don’t hold my hand over my heart when saying the pledge allegiance” did not sign up for selective service, it should be a scandal.
But again I gotta think that the party elders vetted him better than this.
He’s not a Virgo.
He’s a Vertigo...
About Vital Records Vital records (birth, death, marriage, and divorce certificates) for events that occurred in Hawaii are received and preserved by the Office of Health Status Monitoring, a unit of the Department of Health. In Hawaii, access to vital records is restricted by statute (HRS §338-18). Certified copies of these records may be issued to authorized individuals and used for such diverse purposes as school entry, passports, Social Security participation, drivers licenses, employment, sports participation, survivors benefits, proof of property rights, and other needs.
He’s so pretty, he was born a she.
Original birthplace scratched out and “Bethlehem” written in in crayon.
Well, since we don’t care if you’re a citizen to vote, this just follows.
“Natural born” meaning in the constitution cannot be changed by passing a law.
He won’t release; then his campaign should be suspended.
If he was born prior to Hawaii becoming a state, was Hawaii a territory?
If so, his Mother was a citizen but not for five years after turning 16, she was 18 at his birth. And since his father was foreign and she was in a territory if that is was Hawaii was, he would be naturalized unlike McCain who had both parents as citizens even tho he was born in the Canal Zone.
I wonder, if those prior to statehood who were born in Hawaii were considered natural born or naturaized and were they naturalized en masse.
It might be that he feel between the cracks because his Mom was only 18.
Does anyone know if Hawaii was considered a territory and the date of statehood,,I will go google.
Statehood for Hawaii 1959
Naw, we Virgos aren’t crazy.....just a heckuva smarter than anyone else! We’re so misunderstood. ;)
OK I didn’t realize that other states birth records weren’t public records.
Oops.... I meant “lot smarter”. I guess I’m just a bad example, hehe! :)
Obama born in 61, after staehood so unless he is really tthree years older, he is a citizen I do believe according to the article posted upthread.
Of course no one really knows when he was born, because he won’t provide his birth cert.
Does anyone know if Mc Cain released his?
