Top Ten Reasons Obama Won't Release His Birth Certificate
ExurbanLeague.com ^ | June 9, 2008 | Exurban Jon

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.

Wouldn't it be mandatory to show your birth certificate to prove that you're a citizen of the US before you're allowed to become...er...PRESIDENT???

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.

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.

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.

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.

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:
http://campaignspot.nationalreview.com/post/?q=ZTgxZmIwNTg0OWVhMWJkODNmZjI4ZjY4Mjg2OWRmNzI=

“Reporters have asked for it and been denied, and the state of Hawaii does not make such records public.”

Kenya was a British colony when Obama was born and the Kenyan constitution forbids Citizenship to foreign born of Colonial parent prior to Nationhood. But Obama may have a claim to British passport.

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.

Maybe they do not; for some good reasons. However, public interest and the 'legal requirements' for a wannabe President have merit for an exception.

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?

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.

Apparently birth records are not public in Hawaii:

From:

http://hawaii.gov/health/vital-records/vital-records/index.html

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, driver’s licenses, employment, sports participation, survivor’s benefits, proof of property rights, and other needs.

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.

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?
