(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.
Guys - give it up.
I’m around Barry’s age, and was born in NYS. And even accounting for the difference in states, size of the municipalities, and hospitals, my BC doesn’t look anything like that COLB. FWIW.
I thought Hawaii used Negro for race in 1961, not African?
Compare this Nordyle’s... where is the bottom of it: Nordyke BC http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=292053 Obama BC http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/04/27/president-obamas-long-form-birth-certificate Shouldn’t there be signatures, stamps or notarized sections at bottom? Was the lawyer’s letter sufficient to get across the need to relase the entire record? What if he was adopted? Would something be attached to it, or would the records be amended? This does NOT answer my questions about the BC in the least. Also, why is the father’s race labelled “African?”
Question: Why does the file header say “Adobe”?
How come the 1 in 1961 on block 20 looks like it’s written in?Both "1"'s in the 1961 date stamp look similar ... reference blocks 20 and 22 ...
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.
“Birthers here will be so disappointed.”
I don’t think “birthers” will be disappointed, even if it proves to be an authentic copy that has not been altered.
I think those disappointed will be the HIDERS who have insisted that Zero should not have the burden of proof to show that he meets the constitutional requirement of office—35 years old and a NBC. HIDERS are opposed to the logical process of proof; they prefer to act on subjective feeling.
Of course in order to prove that, an authentic (as opposed to photoshopped) birth certificate is only a first step.
By the way, would you be diasppointed if Zero were to divulge his passport and school records?
Bitterness becomes you.
We birthers “Trumped” Obama and forced his hand. And all you can do is cry and claim this was a “tinfoil conspiracist”?
Too bad for you.
Hey, that was the first thing I wanted to post. Fax from the KINKOS in Abilene?
Clearly a forgery. There should be a consistent “hashed” background across the document. There are many places where there are white spaces surrounding typing:
6c This one is really bad. The HEADER, “Name of Hospital...” has white space. The header should never have any white space
13 Compare ANN to STANLEY and DUNHAM Different type, white space
18a Signature white space
19a Signature white space
THERE ARE WHITE SPACES ALL OVER THE DOCUMENT
Why is her name listed as Stanley Ann Dunham Obama?? Were they married?
First of all, where is the seal/stamp that all legal birth certificates must have to ensure legitimacy? Second, why is there no signature of the father???
The Nordyke one is curved like a book on it’s left side too.
Why does the background not show in the centers of letters and why is there a white “ghost” image around all the letters? Zoom in on the File Number text to see what I mean.
Is the background printed at the same time? I would think not. It is certificate paper, and photocopiers, even color do not copy white.
Also, in box # 16 The K is higher than any of the rest of the line. Box 6b also has a misalligned letter, but that one is consistent how typewriters work. Box 16 is not. Correct me if I am wrong.
Downloaded it, where is the seal?
BLOCK 20 is a stamp.
This is such a waste of our time. Some will NEVER be satisfied.
GET OVER IT!
Obama was born before the Nordyke twins but has a higher number than them:
Nordyke - 10637, 10638
Obama - 10641
The MSM that said it was illegal/impossible to obtain, will now hail Obama for so noble, self-sacrificing and courageous a gesture.
So, they had an 8-1/2 x 11 page on the photocopier, complete with the security background and a (let’s say) 5x5 hole cut in it. Then they laid the book over the hole so that the security backgrounds of the paper and the book perfectly aligned. Then they pushed the copy button.
I’d say that’s near impossible to do.
Cause it is a pdf.
I am enjoying the heck out of this, especially the blow this is to Trump.
Are you paying attention? How is this a blow to Trump? Trump WON! Obama LOST!
The pressure Trump placed on this liar in cheif worked. Obama released something.
It’s a great day for birthers!
They were not married to each other. Kenyan drunk father was married when he knocked up the tramp.
The Baraqqis producing a forgery?
I thought this was the most transparent & ethical administration in history LOL
Because he hasn’t spent that much money NOT to show it.
The claims of multiple millions of dollars spent to fight release come from claiming that all the money paid to a legal firm to wrap up activities from the campaign were spent to fight release simply because that was one of the many things they did. That would be akin to claiming that because (hypothetical situation here) Donald Trump has a lawyer on retainer and paid that lawyer to fight a speeding ticket, everything Trump paid that lawyer for all that he did was actually paid to fight the speeding ticket, nevermind all the other activities the lawyer participated in.
So why did he not release it earlier? Personally I think it was a brilliant political move. Rational analysis showed how ludicrous the birther claims were and by dragging things on, he had the ability to make it appear many of his political opponents who opposed his policies, on what were very rational grounds, were actually associated with birthers and therefore off their rockers.
Yes, polls showed that a good % of the population were following birther theories, but that % of the population was viewed as likely to never consider voting for him anyway, and painting his opponents as more extreme helped with the moderates.
And personally, watching all the republican congressmen refuse to refute birther theories, I think that strategy was working for him. I’m not sure why they’re releasing it now... seems like they’d be better off politically just ignoring birthers...
I don’t think they would be so stupid as to release a bad, immediately detectable forgery. They must have been working on it for a long time.
I wonder if the story about the last type writer factory closing is related....
You’re correct. The Constitution doesn’t define national born and English Law defines a child born in England by aliens as natural born.
Plus, can anyone make out the doctor's name? It looks like David A. Smilan, MD, to me, but I can't find him in google. However, my husband's doctor shows up, even though he delivered my husband more than 57 years ago!
Mrs. Prince of Space
Yeah, Thr big question Obama needs to answer is Why? Did people have to sit in jai, millions spent on defending against having to show this, problems with Hawaii certifying him as eligible to be on their ballot, Why Why Why???
This is definitely a Win The Future moment.
“Id say this shows clearly that he is a natural born citizen.”
Nope. His father was NOT an American citizen, so that makes him Native Born, not Natural born.
He’s still not eligible to be president!
Also, his mother could not confer citizenship on Obama at the age of 18.
She had to be a citizen for 5 years after the age of 14.
She’s 1 year shy!
Trump wonders now how 0 got into Columbia and Harvard while not being a good student prior to that. Why not release his transcripts?
Also says the press protects Obama and no one else including himself.
Exactly. Their meme has been that he released his Birth Certificate, or COLB, which they maintain is the same. So what is he doing today?
I wonder what Frank “Catch Me If You Can” Abagnale’s opinion on this document would be?
I don’t know about your state of birth, but I was born in California, and I have a copy that is black where it should be white and vice versa from 1955, a photocopy negative. My daughter was born here in Florida in 1986 and all we got was a copy, not the original, which went to the county registrar.
Were you born at home? My wife was delivered by a mid-wife. Her BC is dated several days after her actual birth, but she was born on Christmas eve, so I can imagine that all the county offices were closed for a week..................
I would be the first to admit that I would hope something could derail his presidency, and have held out hope against my better judgement that he was not born in America. Obama seems to represent something that is non-American to me by way of his policies. From the big-government bullying to the socialism, to his wife just starting to be proud of her country. Is it racism? No, hearing someone like Clarence Thomas talk about his success in America brings tears to my eyes, while Obama is the poster boy for hate America crowd.
if i was him, i’d sit on it until the last minute for max impact. so people can spend time talking about this and not his other issues. in fact, he showed his cards too early.
Obviously the WH has obtained a copy of Corsi’s book..thats’ the ONLY reason why this is happening now. It’s a pre-emptive strike..thus when the book is released they can say..old news..been there, done that..
Shift vs. Caps Lock on a manual typewriter. My capital letters floated all over the place because I tended to be lazy and didn't press shift down all the way.
The date at the bottom says 5-5-1966
Looks like we have some obama staffers posting on this thread.....just sayin’ some people are crowing awful loudly about a potential win for the obamaChrist.....
Please... it shows he was born in Hawaii, which means he IS a natural born citizen. Period. End of the story.

Somebody should try opening this PDF document in a PDF editor ...
Anyone find it funny that Trump’s helicopter lands and he has time for a quick presser within a few minutes before Zero has one, as if they were coordinated between the two back to back? /tinfoil
The Nordyke BC was from some kind of black photostat? Not sure what that means but here it is in this article:
Yes, very interesting!! If you look closely, where the page is bent back from the copier, the security background does not bend with the page. In other words, the security background is “laid over” the entire page...
