And again, here is what most people see as common sense.
(1) When you request a standard birth certificate request, Hawaii issues a COLB.
(2) The COLB is an electronic printout of database information populated by the original source documentation.
(3) The data on a COLB printed out says whatever it says because that's what the original documentation said.
(4) The certificate Obama produced looks like what Hawaii issues.
(5) Hawaii isn't disputing it.
So from a common sense perspective, Obama produced a legal record of birth. A small segment of the population has gone over the top theorizing every answer but the obvious one staring them in the face, most likely because they emotionally will not accept the proposition that Obama can be President. So why should he waste any time on that? Nothing he produces will ever satisfy the people who want to see his baptism records.
I prefer my version:
So from a common sense perspective, Obama has suspiciously withheld his original vital records of birth inviting speculation that he has something to hide, most likely a clue to something that would disqualify him from being President such a foreign birth. A huge segment of the MSM and political elite has gone over the top theorizing every answer but the obvious one staring them in the face, most likely because they emotionally will not accept the proposition that Obama might be ineligible to be President.
I’d appreciate it if you could provide a link which explains away the “perspective problems” (re: the Factcheck photo session with the COLB), which Polarik detailed. I found that particular segment to be the most damning, because no type of doctorate’s degree is necessary in order to believe a legal document’s text should follow roughly the same trajectory.
As a close follower of this mystery, I am quite familiar with what Hawaii issues to requestors of BC information (your bullet point #1).
#2: Yes, this isn’t disputed.
#3: This is being disputed, quite specifically, in detail.
#4: “looks like,” doesn’t cut it.
#5: There “legaleze” response hedges their words quite carefully. Makes one wonder why they do so.
