Posted on 08/05/2009 5:39:00 AM PDT by RobinMasters
Cliff Kincaid, the editor of Accuracy in Media, has released a copy of his own birth certificate, in order to demonstrate what needs to be done to resolve the growing controversy over the alleged birth certificate of President Barack Obama. "My birth certificate includes the names of my mother and father, my mother's doctor, and the hospital in which I was born," said Kincaid. "This certified copy of an original long form document is what anyone who wants to be president should be prepared to produce. Why is this a controversy?"
Kincaid went on, "It reveals that my mother's maiden name was Beverly Ann Mason and my father's name was Clifford Paul Kincaid. It says that my mother's doctor was Walter Washburn. He certifies in the document that I was born at 8:38 in the morning. It says that I was born in Research Hospital in Jackson County, Kansas City, Missouri, on May 16, 1954. It says my father worked as a warehouse supervisor for Owens-Corning Fiberglas."
By contrast, the "birth certificate" released by the Obama presidential campaign includes no name of a hospital, a location of that hospital, or a physician. "The contrast between what is on so many birth certificates for ordinary Americans, such as mine, versus what the Obama campaign has released, is striking," said Kincaid. "This contrast is what accounts for the many questions that have arisen and which have given rise to the so-called 'Birther' Movement.

“FREE THE LONG FORM!”
This is obviously a problem -—where there’s smoke there’s fire. The stupid public is so happy because they think they will get things for free...they’d vote for a serpent head. Wait...they did.
I would have no problem if anyone wanted to black out their mother’s maiden name, which could be used to steal identity.
Then again, I’m quite sure Obama’s mother’s maiden name has been released. (understatement of the year)
I am holding my long form as I type...
Everyone wave their BCs....
I have a charge card version of my COLB. I wonder what would happen if I tried getting a passport only using this instead of my long form?
I think Cliff coming out on this is significant.
Good for him!
How else would the state run media explain someone pointing out such completely unreasonable comparisons between his lesser, mere mortal BC and The Obamessiah's deity? Birthers are such fools. Did Jesus have a Birth Certificate? Did allah? Or did any of the other lesser than obama deities? This is all so distracting.
As posted before, this is what a Hawaiian birth certificate
from the 60s looks like.
Mine from Tennessee is almost the same.
It’s entirely to Obama’s political advantage to keep this going, just like having Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan represent the left helped Bush get reelected. People in the middle have begun to realize what a disaster Obama’s policies are. The only thing that can prevent a Democrat debacle in 2010 is if conservatives appear to be shrill, crazy, conspiracy theory crackpots.
The COLB is enough to satisfy any legal requirements, and all the birthers have is questions, no evidence. And as they keep looking for the magic bullet to prove Obama is not a NBC they are victim to falling for frauds like the supposed Kenyan birth certificate. Whatever Obama’s reason for not releasing his birth records originally, the political advantage of not doing so now is enough to ensure he won’t.
Please, Nana! This is a family friendly site!
Hmmmm, sounds like a racial remark...;)
Glenn Beck did a pretty good job of showing how the birthers are helping Obama and the Democrats yesterday. If this keeps up they will torpedo any chance of derailing Obama’s agenda.
Folks are beginning to conclude that there’s something he’s hiding on his long form.
What else can you conclude?
I have to admit the contoversy made me dig my BC out to look at it. It's within 5 years of Zeros, from Texas, and it looks a lot like the one posted with the article.
Maybe we should start a "Dear Obama" campaign...
I'll show you mine if you show me YOURS!!!
“The COLB is enough to satisfy any legal requirements”
You’re wrong on that one. Even the state of Hawaii will not accept the short form as proof of Hawaiian birth!
If there is nothing to the birth certificate issue and the question of eligibility, why the secrecy?
The more I've read from CFP, the more I've grown to trust their writing and to become envious that they aren't Americans.
Regardless, after reading this, I feel teased. There isn't any real information to bite, just lots of chum in the water.
At least the CFP writers are showing that we aren't the only ones wondering where the press and talk radio are on what would seem to be a natural story to talk and talk and talk about.
If the CFP is correct, then who or what could gag the media so tightly and why???
Didn’t Obama have to produce a copy of his long form when he got married? I did. And they didn’t give it back.
Maybe, on your point #1. But the problem is, the COLB Obama's campaign released has long ago been proved a fraud. Also, almost none of Obama's other official records have been released. All that is available for public view are his own dubious claims made in his two autobiographies.
And then, there's the problem of the COLB from Kenya entered into court proceedings last Saturday by Orly Taitz, which has yet to be debunked...
Really, just who is this guy and what is he hiding from the American People?
And there are a lot of things Glenn Beck does that help Obama and the Democrats. The same could be said about our opposition to health care or Cap & Trade.
Obama has a duty to clear up this issue. The office of President is the only office for which you MUST be a "Natural Born Citizen" and the ONLY way to prove that is to provide the public with all the vital records which you can rely upon to validate that status.
We as Americans have a RIGHT and a DUTY to ensure that our President is constitutionally qualified to hold that office!
To ignore this issue is to deem the Constitution a dead letter!
I just walked in here from the living room where the t.v. is.
The t.v. was on and they were covering Bill Clinton’s historical arrival from N.Korea in the most adulatory narration that I’ve heard since the inaugeration. They had OJ style helicopter footage of Bill’s plane taxi-ing into the airport. I waked out and then back in the room a few times within 10 minute’s span. The only other story I saw was one on Steven Spielberg getting some kind of a reward, which was to be made in a ceremony somewhere by guess who? Bill Clinton!! Then they switched back to the airplane on the runway with Bill and the redeemed reporters.
Funny they’re letting the BO birther story run on like it has, and suddenly, Bill Clinton like Bonaparte out of Italy.
Just some food for thought. My second husband adopted my two sons from a previous marriage. He (the second husband) is listed on their birth certificates as their father.
Expect it all to come to head when Orley’s case does.
Sorry Cliff, but NO copies accepted. Photo the original with the Clerk standing next to you with anotary and Judge as witnesses.
This was two decades before Barack was born, so why not at least similar information on his birth certificate?
I'm NOT stating that he was born any where other than Hawaii but registering live births could not have been that backward in the 1960s even in Hawaii!
I wouldn’t demand the certificate (which could, after all, be forged). What I would demand is an official declaration by a Hawaiian official that Obama was, both officially and actually, born in the state or territory of Hawaii long enough ago to be of sufficient age to be President, and that no official records exist (e.g. related to adoptions) that might challenge the veracity of such a claim.
