“The only explanation I can think of is this: He had to order both a short form in 2007 and a long form birth certificate in April 2011 because he lost the one he talked about in his book.”
Another possiblity: He’s withholding the one he talked about in his book (duh) and he knew this could be a problem with his campaign so he got the short form thing trumped up in advance of his 2008 campaign.
Yes. I agree with you.
I think that Senator Obama from Illinois, Harvard law school graduate Obama, and 2008 presidential candidate Obama was too smart to lose such a very document such his original 1961 birth certificate from Kapiolani Hospital.
My point is this: I believe that when Senator Obama ordered a new Hawaii birth certificate in June 2007, he already had his original long form birth certificate from Kapiolani Hospital but he was too scared to show that one to the public, because he knew that it contained details that could be damaging to his presidential campaign.
So I believe that President Obama now has at least three birth certificates: The long one his mother received in 1961 from Kapiolani Hospital, the short one Senator Obama from Illinois ordered in June 2007, and the doctored long one President Obama ordered in April 2011 and showed to the public with great fanfare.
My question is this: Why hasn't a reporter asked President Obama why he ordered the short form in 2007 and the long form in April 2011?
