Seriously... do you think this hippy mama of obama was smart enough to file all that crap? There is great pre supposition going on that she knew it was important form him later in life . I just dont think she had such forethought.
I don't know about "later in life", but for the more immediate term...wanting to get her son a HI birth certificate would be important. IMO, she seemed more like a pseudo-Commie (perhaps full Commie) than a (drugged up) hippy. The commie's were known to be sneaky/devious like that.
