P.S. I stand by my assertion that being born in Kenya is a red herring. Obama wants to hide the fact that his birth certificate name was Barry Harry Obama. ;)
Why is the certificate # blacked out?
African is not a race! In 1961, wouldn't Negro or Negroid have been used to describe his Father's race instead of African?
Where is the indentation of the official seal and the folded marks, the rest of us have on our valid birth certificate copies?
Last but not least: What are the reverse purple lettering past the last entry line on the lower middle right? What do they mean, and why are they there?
Did Dan Blather's liar, Mary Mapes create this bs?
Is this phoney birth certificate just another example of the Real but Fake Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas, the Islamofacist Manchurian Candidate for Changing America?
We probably have as much chance of seeing a real copy of his birth certificate as seeing John Kerrys full military record. Kerry refused to release his military records, and Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas, the Islamofacist Manchurian Candidate will probably not show his BC. We will be labeled as racists for daring to question his birth.
I find too much overemphasis on trivial points about Obama and Michelle while important issues are ignored. I would like to have his questioned, among many other issues, on
*Kosovo - Does he agree with Clinton/Bush/McCain?
*his position on amnesty and an explanation for his vote against the Cronyn amendment
Hey, why not? It seems to have worked for Jerry Rivera.
Especially since Kenya didn't even exist in 1961. From 1856 until 1963 it was British East Africa and included the present countries of Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika.
A lot of people keep squawking about Obama showing documentation. I suggest these same people show documentation that he was born elsewhere. BTW, blog & forum entries no matter how well reasoned are NOT documentation. A birth certificate from another country would be documentation. A passenger manifest with his mother's name on it would be documentation. A copy of his naturalization records to become a U.S. citizen would be documentation.
The Obama campaign has been extraordinarily intelligent to get him to where he is today. To think that they would present a document to the public with this many points of interest on it is ridiculous. They saw what happened to Dan Rather & I can guarantee that a perfect document can be produced with the money his campaign has available to spend.
Asking 'why doesn't he do so and so' isn't proof of squat. "Where's the bleed through from the back?" Isn't proof of anything either. One would have to evaluate thousands of Hawai'ian birth certificates to even get to a point of statistical significance. How does one prove that what is believed to be 'bleed through' isn't in fact 'cast off' from another document.
"the certificate, after all, has some serial number! That is part of her official duty, imo. Has she not performed her duty? Has she not performed her duty?" ... someone writes. Get serious! Show me in her job description where it says she is to respond to bloggers and phone calls about a subject she is sworn NOT to discuss with anyone without a need to know. BTW Jim Geraghty is not on a need to know basis.
These threads are nuttier than tilting at windmills.
No, he wants to hide the fact that his birth name was SweetHome Al Obama.
