(CNN) The White House released President Obamas original birth certificate Wednesday.
The surprise release follows recent and sustained remarks by businessman Donald Trump, among others, that raised doubts as to whether the president was born in the United States.
This could be one of those rotating stampy thingies where you can change the year by moving to the next number. the "1" would be 'fresher' compared to the '196', due to having been put into effect at the beginning of the year.
Has Barry shown this before?
If not, what took him so long?
Good question. And why spend so much money doing so?
Is this long form thingie equivalent to the BC I have in my safe deposit box, or is this the paperwork you get to replace it?
Nobody gets the ‘original’. We all get copies. The originals are state records.
...how is anyone who’s an agnostic on this subject supposed to be convinced by a piece of paper that the prez coughs up when convenient?
They probably won’t be. If money can be counterfeited, then a BC can certainly be..............
How is anyone supposed to legitimate it? Barry's had months, if need be, to come up with paper, ink, and a typewriter of the appropiate age. So even if someone trustworthy is asked to authenticate the darn thing, seems to me if one just used those criteria, the form could pass muster. Jeez louise, what a mess.
Do you have any details?
Holy crap, Stanley ann’s addy is that Highway where the Obamas or Dunhams never lived. Did they live together for a month or so, maybe?
“Only yesterday the Bamster said there was no point in releasing the LFBC because it wouldn’t change anybodies mind. A day later he does a 180. Either this guy is over medicated or White House polls show he is so far on the losing side of this issue he has to release something.
Trump needs to keep the heat on for the Bamster’s school records. “
Something tells me the White House is worried about what Trump might actually have on Obama.
> Birthers here will be so disappointed.
That’s the nature of a tinfoil conspiracist; you could show them all the proof in the world but they will always find some angle on which to be paranoid over and thus disbelieve.
In this case, prepare for a flood of “well this just proves that its a fake, it took 2 years to make the forgery perfect!” nonsense.
He’s afraid of Trump.
There's no way this doesn't have a political motive. Maybe his polling really is that bad and he wants to take it off the table for 2012. Trump could be getting under his skin.
Is this the "modified hangout" - release the birth certificate and no one will question my buried grades or writings?
Since Hawaii no longer offers the long form even to the child, how did Obama get this? Did he "find it" in his private files?
“And that fact, now supported by evidence, means that Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen.”
Oh Come on. Just because this birth certificate shows he is NOT a natural born citizen doesn’t mean anything is goign to be done about it.
You talk as if laws matter in the USSA. Obama will stay in power as long as his handlers want him to be in power. The American people are a corrupt lot ruled by emotion and faulty logic.
The House GOP are a cowardly lot who talk good to get elected then cannot be counted on to do anything but go along to get along.
This will do nothing but show what a farce the USSA and Americans have become.
Why does this look like it’s a copy from a book? The left side is a curved page....and why the out of context border? The border has been added on purpose for some reason...
Exactly. I agree with you. He has a lot of ‘splainin to do.
I think Trump must have something else, and Team Obama know it or suspect it. I suspect this is deflection.
No, our ‘leader’ is mostly fund raising, vacationing, and playing golf. So long as he’s campaigning almost full time, he’s a candidate, and candidates should show their bona fides for the office they seek.
The bc doesn’t establish ‘natural born’ so long as “Kenya, East Africa” is on that doc as father’s birthplace, absent documentation of his having become a US citizen prior to 8/4/61. The bc has never been anything but a red herring.
Now, if this is let to stand, any anchor baby can walk into the Oval Office.
But, let’s see the academic transcripts and medical records.
Here is a long form BC issued a day after Obama was born. It doesn't look squeaky clean like Obama's. Wonder why?
Line 20 is a stamp, not typed as in 13
The only weak spot in the document, as presented, is the use of the term “African” for father’s race.
We already know that the approved Federal standard term for documents in 1961 was “Negro”, however, as anyone who was alive in 1961 also knows, Federal standards were of almost no significance to local governments (which is one reason life in 1961 was a lot better).
Perhaps the reason Hawaii stopped issuing long forms a few days ago (until they issued this one) was to prevent this line of attack.
I bet there is not one other LFBC from Hawaii in 1961 that uses the term “African”.
So his mother is an American citizen, his father was an African studying in Hawaii...Obama is not a natural born citizen, correct?
Looks like changes have been made to some of it.
