HONOLULU – A privacy law that shields birth certificates has prompted Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie to abandon efforts to dispel claims that President Barack Obama was born outside Hawaii, his office says.
State Attorney General David Louie told the governor that privacy laws bar him from disclosing an individual's birth documentation without the person's consent, Abercrombie spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Friday.

More smoke rising, hopefully some swing state legislature will pass legislation REQUIRING any candidate for President provide copies of their ORIGINAL birth certificate in order to be placed on the ballot.
If this were about a Republican, nothing would stop the media from getting the information out, even the law.
Gee, what doesn’t Hussein want Americans to know?
I dont usually get caught up in the birther thing but even I have to say, what? I can almost guarantee this wont shut up the chatter, lol. Just brings more I would think. VERY WEIRD
Obama is a Con Man. This is the greatest con of all time. A hoax of monumental size.
It seems odd to me that Abercrombie would even bring this up. He has to be an idiot just to mention this.
“Unfortunately there is nothing the governor can do to release the B/C without the person’s consent”
In other words, Obama has not given consent ...the whole point that those on the right have made! He has NOT given consent to have the actual document shown. Naturally, this was given on a Friday news dump. Notice it came AFTER Limbaugh spent some time on the radio about the Ambercrobie.
“Hawaii’s privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn’t have a tangible interest.”
I think all Americans have a “tangible interest”.
Is it possible now to do FOI requests for any contacts between the Governor and White House or is that just a pipe dream?
it is obvious at this point that the man was born in Kenya....and the SCOTUS needs to out him.
“Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo again confirmed Friday that Obama’s name is found in its alphabetical list of names of people born in Hawaii, maintained in bound copies available for public view.”
About the list — are the entries handwritten, typed on a typewriter used in the early 60’s, or computer generated?
How long has Abercrombie been yapping about this and it took THIS LONG for the Attorney General to get around to telling him this?
That under race it says, “White”. Let that firework off!
Is there not one reporter who will stand up at a press conference and say...”Mr. President, why not just release your long form birth certificate”?
Yeah...it'll make a great movie someday. If we're allowed to watch movies not produeced by The State by then.
drip, drip, drip
STLToday.com had this as one of the main stories yesterday, then they dropped it down the page, now it’s off the front page as of this morning:
But not before becoming one of the most popular and most commented stories. Fail!
Unfortunately there is nothing the governor can do to release the B/C without the persons consent
Ummmh, Governor Abercrombie - that’s the whole point. Normal people don’t spend on the order of a million dollars in legal fees to keep their birth certificate under wraps unless they’ve got something to hide.
Now, Governor Abercrombie, you can join the crowd in speculating exactly what it is that he’s trying to hide.
Keep in mind that while there are many people who question 0bama's birthplace on the right, the movement itself started with disgruntled Hillary Clinton supporters. Is Gov. Abercrombie secretly in the Hillary 2012 camp?
What evidence did the New York State judge use in his decision last week declaring that the NY Board of Elections committed fraud by certifying a British citizen (Obama) as the US presidential canditate in the 2008 election?
Was it a copy of the birth certificate? I can’t believe that a judge would just make up the evidence.
It should bring a lot of chatter. My daughter went for driving permit today and had a Passport, School ID, Bank Book, Birth Certificate and a piece of mail with her name and address, it was not enough info. She had to come home to get her medical insurance card for further proof. Now how come my 19 year old daughter can’t take a PERMIT test with 5 pieces of personal ID but Obama can become President of the United States with no ID? I agree VERY, VERY WEIRD.
Are there any nurses, doctors or administrative people from the facility where he was born who have spoken up? His pediatrician?
Some of those folks are surely still alive.
“It seems odd to me that Abercrombie would even bring this up. He has to be an idiot just to mention this.” - pepsionice
Or something else:
No that’s Hawaii law and I never understood how he was going to release it. Now I assume he can see the hard copy of the long form which apparently no one can find. My guess that the prior claims by Hawaii government to have seen the record is merely that they checked the bound book not the physical record.
I’m not a birther, but id does raise the question are certificates of live births filed in that same book where the family did the registration rather than the hospital or doctor or would it be different? Second where does it fall in the registrations? On the same page as others born that day or a lot later? That book is public record according to the article.

“Community Organizer” is the 21st century term replacing “grifter”.
Barry was borne (note spelling)in Hawaii,at that time given a by law a Christian first name, but he’s a half citizen, American mother, Kenyan father. And that’s what they don’t want you to know and what “birthers” should be charging. Not that he wasn’t born in the USA.
What Christians should be looking for is his baptismal record. If he’s a Christian as he claims. Where is his record of baptism ?
In any event the effort should be to defeat him in 2012
It isn’t like Obama is afraid of identity theft, if his BC is released. That fear would be as crazy as spending millions to make sure no honest person can see it.
Abercrombie came in like a lion, promising to put doubters in their place about Obama’s mystery birth by releasing the real birth certificate.
Now he is sneaking out of his promise like a lamb because he found out that there is no authentic birth certificate.
Originally he must have been gullible enough to believe Obama’s claims of Hawaiian birth or he wouldn’t have raised the issue.
But now he is forced to hide behind a law fabricated to protect scammers like Obama. But that won’t work because he already announced the state does not have an actual record of Obama’s birth.
Everyday there are more and more people getting caught up in the “birther thing”. Barry could end that trend, if he would authorize the BC release. But, he spends millions to prevent it. That is either crazy, or criminal.
Very weird. The AG’s statement makes it obvious that the person who is refusing to let Abercrombie go ahead is Barry himself. This is doing nothing but calling attention to the fact that there’s something seriously wrong with the whole scenario.
Personally, I think Abercrombie is an elderly liberal goof-ball who probably thought he was doing Barry a favor by offering to vouch for the BC and probably genuinely believed that it actually existed.
It’s clear by now that it doesn’t exist. So once again the Obama tactic reverts to stonewalling.
His office must be in shambles (figurately speaking).
Even "progressive" politicians, hit aside the head with a two-by-four often enough (figurately speaking) finally realize that it takes more than several hundred thousand morons' vote and a big mouth to be a political leader and statesman.
Hawaii has always been a strange place.
Chicago with an asian accent.
The worst scenario isn't pretty.
The mundane one is now that historically we have had a "First Rapist." we are certainly ready for a "First Bastard."
Because the reporter will never be permitted to attend another press conference again. That’s more important than trying to determine what the truth is.
Amazing, isn’t it? Wikileaks will lay out the entire US intelligence service but the Hawaii Department of Records is able to keep this secret.
Just turn our national security over to them. They can keep it undercover.
I agree and the people not voters that put him where he is are too.
Or that his dad was someone like Frank Marshall Davis, which would have been political poison in 2008, and now after several years of dissembling, would be political poison if revealed now.
At least one court has recognized that Barry is Kenyan and based a decision on it.

BOYCOTT HAWAII 2011
When Obama tries to put his name on the ballot in 2012, every state must refuse him unless he presents it, President or not! Be wiser this time. All candidates must be vetted.
‘some of those people are still alive’
And probably want to stay that way.
Sounds to me like the AG is being deceptive in his statement. But then again, I could be wrong.
I can not imagine how he got elected once people got a look at Rev. Wright.
Now, Governor Abercrombie, you can join the crowd in speculating exactly what it is that hes trying to hide.
Great commentary this morning at The Daily Pen...
“Now that Obama’s recorded past has evaded even the executive authority of his own alleged native state, perhaps Congress and the U.S. media can be made fools of next. Oh, wait...they already have been.
Unfortunately, Hawaiis Attorney General cannot save Abercrombie from the ultimate damage his little month-long excursion will cause, though. Abercrombie is right about one thing. It will have massive ramifications on the 2012 election which will devastate Obama’s re-election bid and damage further the quivering democrat party. Not to mention, Abercrombie will now suffer the personal attrition of an internal war between his leftist political loyalties and his newfound moral doubts about supporting someone who has become the most prolific liar and political deceiver in American political history.”
See my tagline.
no kidding. Granny got silenced.
Didnt Fukino and the Lingle (?) state that they saw the LFBC and attested to it? How does that statement fit into the context of “something written in the archives.”
Didn’t Barry Goldwater and John McCain have to prove their eligibilities? Goldwater was born in Arizona Territory and McShamnesty was born in the Panama Canal Zone.
