Skip to comments.Is Obama hiding his birth certificate?

As President Barack Obama attempts to cool a heated racial row in the US linked to the arrest of a black Harvard professor, a growing conspiracy claims that he is hiding a Kenyan birth certificate, making him ineligible to serve as president.
Conspiracy theorists in the United States and far right wingers, who have begun to call themselves birthers, claim that Obama is not entitled to be in the White House simply because he is foreign born, the Daily Telegraph said.
According to the conspiracists, there is something suspicious in the absence of a photocopy of Obamas original birth record, known as the long form, even as the White House has published copies of his official birth certificate -a printed summary of his birth details, including the name of the medical centre in Honolulu, Hawaii, where he was born.
The birthers claim that the photocopy of Obama's original birth record would have been prepared by doctors or hospital officials involved in his birth and would contain fuller details, including the address of his parents.
According to Conservative radio host George Gordon Liddy, who was linked to the Watergate burglary, Obama was in fact born in Kenya, his father's home country. He claims to have seen a deposition by the President's Kenyan step-grandmother, 86-year-old Sarah Obama, stating that the city of his birth was Mombasa, the report said. The President is therefore "an illegal alien", Liddy said.
And if this is in the Hindustan Times, even when factually incorrect, what does that tell us about it's "legs" and their chance of putting the genie back in the bottle? Or should I say "djinn" instead of genie in honor of our Dear Leader?
No, the COLB did not mention hospital. Also, FightTheSmears has been taken down... this month.
I know you’ve been following this issue a lot closer than I.
But wasn’t Obama’s mother born 11/29/1942?
Conspiracists? Its a conspiracy on the part of the people demanding a legitimate BC be produced?
Is his religion listed on his Birth Certificate?

I’m a conspi-racist....
How does asking the president to show his birth certificate constitute a conspiracy?
A friend of mine just completed a cross-country hiking / river floating trip in the Brooks Range of Alaska. He voted for the bamster. I asked him if he happened to find a copy of 0’s BC while he was there. He was not amused. Typical lib...
Can you believe these crackpot, hillbilly, right-wing wackos demanding that the man who holds the world's most powerful position (including control of thousands of nuclear weapons, 15 carrier battle groups, etc.) should have to prove his eligibility for that office? G**Damn racists!
Looks like it is working!
Someone needs to send this to DRUDGE.
All Mr. Obama has to do is provide for forensic inspection his long form Brth cCtificate. The long form Birth Certificate will show (through parental citizenship) whether or not he’s a “Natural Born Citizen” of the US of A - Natural Born being defined as both parents of US citizenship.
In the Army, this is something we would say to be “too easy”.
Or perhaps not......
To the best of my knowledge no Hawaiian official has said anything more than the long form B.C. is valid. None has ever said that it proved that Obama was born in Hawaii.
Looks like we have outsourced our investigative reporting too.
the drum beat gets louder and louder. Let’s see it
“And if this is in the Hindustan Times, even when factually incorrect, what does that tell us about it’s “legs”..”
Be patient, this affair will only grow worldwide. It is not only the American people who deserve to know the identity of their president — pretty soon all heads of state will want to know who they’re dealing with. Too much is at stake. No one wants to sign agreements with an enigma.
This whole affair is making us a laughing stock. If Obama and Congress had any decency they would put an end to this guessing game once and for all.
“Did I miss something? Does the photcopied certificate of live birth (COLB) that they put on Obama’s “Fight the Smears” website (The one that Chrissy Matthews was waving around the other day) have the name of the hospital where he was born?”
No, the COLB doesnt have it. It only states city/town of birth (Honolulu). However the reported official-bio birthplace hospital is Kapiolani Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.
