It is my understanding that a COLB is an abbreviated form of the original birth certificate, regardless of what the original says — late registration, adoption, birth out of Hawaii, etc.
Oboma is claiming the short version IS his original certificate. That makes a difference. That means maybe he wasn't born in that hospital, otherwise the original would have been a long version.
That is what I am trying to understand. For what reason was a COLB presented in place of a live birth certificate as proof of obama citizenship? Why does one even exist if they are basically a substitute or replacement for the real thing, IF obama was born in Honalulu? No reason except to cover up something as far as I can see.
