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.

Looks like Barry and his peeps got a little nervous with Abercrombie nosing around and had their folks on the ground in Hawaii try to put out another BC brushfire.

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.

“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”.

“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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hawaii's privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn't have a tangible interest.
Just so everyone can look and see the 13 "persons" who have a tangible interest, or can be granted one by a court of law, I'll give a link to the relevant statute...
§338-18 Disclosure of records.
Snip...(b)The following persons shall be considered to have a direct and tangible interest in a public health statistics record:
Snip...(b)(9) A person whose right to inspect or obtain a certified copy of the record is established by an order of a court of competent jurisdiction;

Sounds to me like the AG is being deceptive in his statement. But then again, I could be wrong.

Now, Governor Abercrombie, you can join the crowd in speculating exactly what it is that he’s trying to hide.


Great commentary this morning at The Daily Pen...

http://thedailypen.blogspot.com/2011/01/abercrombie-gets-bailed-out-by-hawaiian.html

“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, Hawaii’s 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.”
