Business Insider ^ | 04/27/2011 | Henry Blodget

Posted on 04/27/2011 7:32:06 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

A week ago, Donald Trump said he would release his own tax returns when Obama released his birth certificate.

Well, now Obama has released his birth certificate.

So, Mr. Trump, when can we see your tax returns?

He just released the same document that has been on his website for three years. A head fake. It is NOT the long form.

Obama released his COLB not his birth certificate.

Trump only needs to release a reciept showing he filed a return.

It is identical to the Nordyke BC. It has the hospital and doctor’s signature. It is not the same COLB.

I don’t think so. He is going to get him to release his grades in college but I guarantee that Obama will not until Trump releases his tax returns....which he should by the way. Even Obama released his tax returns.

If the original document was in a bound volume (as reflected by the curvature of the left hand side of the certificate), how can the green patterned background of the document’s safety paper be so seamless?

• Why, if Obama was born on August 4, 1961, was the “Date Accepted by Local Reg.” four days later on August 8, 1961?

• What is the significance of the smudges in the box containing the name of the reported attendant?

• In the “This Birth” box there are two mysterious Xs above “Twin” and “Triplet.” Is there a sibling or two unaccounted for?

• What is the significance of the mysterious numbers, seen vertically, on the document’s right side?

• Finally, the “Signature of Local Registrar” in box 21 may be a desperate attempt at establishing the document’s Hawaiian authenticity. Note to forgers: it is spelled “Ukulele.”

I am watching Fox News. I am watching the conservative news channel so I am not the only one falling for it hook, line and sinker. I am in very good company. We can continue with this topic forever but it ignores other real problems. So you chose which ones to concentrate on. I am going to predict that this is over once and for all. You can continue to hold out hope but today as far as MOST Americans are concerned, this is over! Put it to bed for goodness sakes.

What the heck is the big deal with the Long Form? The COLB shows that he was born in the KAPIOLIANI MATERNITY AND GYNECOLOGICAL HOSPITAL.

What data is in the Long Form that will question his place of birth?

So the birth certificate says he’s the son of a foreign student living in the US. Does that no prove Obama is not a “natural born citizen” regardless of being born in the US?

So, Donald Trump, Now That Obama Has Released His Birth Certificate, Release Your Tax Returns

What nonsense. Because Obama released something he should have released almost three years ago, Trump must release something when he hasn't declared as a candidate for anything.

Trump and anyone else is allowed to comment on political matters without releasing what actual, declared candidates should release.

Since you wrote this article on current political matters, why not release your tax returns, Henry Blodget and all who agree with his silly little outburst?

That is in Trumps nature. He if nothing else loves himself. It would have been awful to have him as President. I am glad that the air is out of the ballon now and he will go back to his tv show. This proves that Trump won’t run and if he does he will never be nominated for the Republican Presidential Candidate.

You hit the nail right on the head by asking that question my friend. THE ISSUE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THIS — HOW DO YOU DEFINE NATURAL BORN CITIZEN BY LAW?

Mant FReepers insist that we go by what they believe the Framers of the constitution understood the term, ‘Natural Born’ to be, which they describes thusly:

1) BORN IN AMERICAN SOIL.

2) BORN OF TWO PARENTS WHO ARE *BOTH* AMERICAN CITIZENS AT THE TIME OF BIRTH.

IF the above definition is correct ( and that is in dispute ), then the Birth Certificate’s release only shows that Obama passed on requirement ( #1 above ).

His father’s citizenship at the time of his birth is now the question.

Too bad he didn't have those so called balls a couple of years ago. He only found them when he decided to run for president and needed some suckers to support him.

Well, yes & no.

A birth certificate proves eligibility to be president. A tax return has nothing to do with eligibility. However, I know what you're saying.

BO/BS released something that appears to be a birth certificate. The version released classifies his father's race as "African". The problem is the United States was not using that term for blacks when BO/BS was born in 1961. They were classified as "Negro". "African" was not used until several years after BO/BS was born.

Now on to the adult issues.

This is the biggest Constitutional crisis of our time. Defending the Constitution against someone who knowingly and willingly has violated the Constitution doesn't get anymore adult.

If those were pre-numbered forms, there could be any number of reasons why they weren't be used in order. Someone will probably investigate it very soon.

The only reason the SOB released the FAKE doc. is because his poll numbers are in a free fall and only 38% of FOLK here in America think he was born here...the astronomical number of 70+% of people think he was born OUTSIDE the US. He and his demonic hordes want to stop the bleeding before he hits rock bottom!! I've also noticed that ALL the UNION Thugs are out in force countering the birthers in ALL the websites!

Agree by the White House doing this... It’s just validation that Obama was not born in the USA. Think about it. Why would he RERELEASE another modified Version of the COLB and not a birth certificate.

OH and like you pointed out... They were not using the word AFRICAN back then.

Looks bogus to me, but you new the media was going to take it hook, line and sinker.

What is with the lighter white area that covers part of the word Caucasian in section #14? The word caucasion is shown differently on this page than on the “doctument” at http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster/barack-obama/birth-obama-certer-movement-098513 The “K” on line 6 is different from the “K” on line 16. The “H” on line 6 is differect then the rest of the “H”s in the rest of the certificate. There are also odd marks in sections, 11, 12a, 16, 17a and 17b.

Something stinks!

There isn’t anything in the Constitution about Presidents and their financial status. There IS however, something about the birth status of candidates for President. Trump’s tax returns have nothing to do with his qualifications for being President.

Obama didn't release anything new. He released the same old COLB.

If The Donald does not make a big stink about this, it means he's a stalking-horse for Hussein, meant to inoculate him from further birth certificate inquiries.

Well, release your tax returns. Your commenting on a public forum about the same issues Trump has commented about.

This is all nonsense, Trump is under no obligation to release anything simply because he's commenting on political matters.

The "heavy lifting" never accomplished much. It was the heavy publicity that caused Obama to make this move. And Trump was one of the few who had the public forum and the guts and confidence to force the issue.

Comparing this with the Nordyke COLB, Obama’s is missing this text at the bottom along with signatures:

“THIS CERTIFIES THAT THE ABOVE IS A TRUE AND CORRECT COPY OF THE ORIGINAL RECORD ON FILE IN THE RESEARCH, PLANNING AND STATISTICS OFFICE

HAWAII STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH”

Instead Obama’s has Onaka’s signature stamp indicating that it may also be an ABSTRACT.

It appears from my naked eyes that one document is being superimposed over another document that contains the signature stamp of Alvin Onaka (hint: look at the curling of the left-hand margin of the text field).

Of course Zero had to respond to Trump on the bc issue, because Trump was also pushing the issue of the Rezko land deal, his admittance to Columbia and Harvard and his grades, and coming up would have been the SSN issue.

So Obama had to pre-empt The Donald and attempt to shut him down. Let’s see if Trump is satisfied with today’s release.

My belief is the elgibility issue is a smokescreen for concealing a history criminality including document and identity fraud, social security fraud, and election fraud.

Lol, indeed, It was never Trump's place to push this issue until he decided to get involved in the political debates in a big way this year. His choice.

And he played it smarter than anyone from the first. He didn't deal in elaborate theories and try to prove a negative, but just asked the first and most logical question of all: Why won't he release the original BC (if it exists)?

And that got results no one else had gotten in almost three years.

And, again, today he is asking the most logical question of all. What didn't he do this three years ago?

Some people just can't stand to see how effective Trump is when he decides to get involved. They know he'll be a real threat to their candidate if he should decide to run in the Republican primary.

Credit where credit is due rather than childish name calling.

The information is the same, the boxes are the same. The only difference is how they were validated at the bottom - which makes sense when you consider how photocopying technology has changed in 50 years.

What specific issues do you have?
