That certainly was done in good faith, it was not required to be posted by any law, a logical person would believe a certified legal copy of his birth certificate would end any silliness about a foreign birth.

What part of: "He doesn't have it, that's why he requested a copy from Hawaii in 2007." do you not understand?

Wow, you contradict yourself in one post after your last one

Your requesting his original copy in one post, and now you say that he doesn't have to present his original copy.

Make up your mind.

the document posted by Obama has been affirmed by Janice Okubo as being the one they issue in Hawaii. Her statements have been linked earlier in this thread.

and the COLB was seen by actual reporters who verified that it contains a seal, signature and date by the Registrar.







And those who use Sharon Rondeau's website, teh Pest and Efail, you are knowingly supporting articles, which she allows, like this on her site:
xxxwww.thepostemail.com/2011/04/24/it%E2%80%99s-not-what-happened-but-why/ (purposefully delinked so that you have to go their of your accord). It's a disgusting site.

Not interested in his COLB from 2007. Show the original
birth certificate of 1961. I'm not contradicting myself.
He doesn't have to show it - unless, I guess Congress
demanded it. I'm not a lawyer. What I do know - is it
casts suspicion over him for not doing it. You can blow
up that paper as big as you want - it's not his original
birth certificate - and that is what folks are asking him
to show. I'm not personally requesting it
Even his christian confident is asking I cant see why he wont produce it.

You don't need an original. I don't have my original. A legally requested copy is just as good as an original, as long as it's either notarised or stamped by the authorities from whom it was requested.

Then kindly post yours on the internet, please. That is, unless you weren't born in the US?

Of the 3 people that live in my house, not one of us has our original birth certificate, or any clue where they might be. I thought I still had a certified copy of mine that I had to request when I got a passport 15 years ago, but when I looked for it, I found it too had gone missing, it probably was lost when I moved into my new house last year. Anyone who has moved around at all has likely lost a BC. I have a passport so I will probably never need to get another copy, unless I decide to run for president, then I would get whatever my birth state sends me.

I'd guess a large percentage of Americans no longer have their original birth certificate, and would get whatever their state sends as official legal copies. I guess they should just expect a major interrogation, and disbelief if they don't look, or seem "American" enough, despite posting the legal proof of their US birth on the internet.

That is not what the state department asks for, sorry. Witnesses? Have you ever seen a "long form birth certificate"? I have seen lots of them, as a public health nurse. I also have the birth certificates from my two children. There are NO, I repeat NO witness signatures required in any state that I have ever participated in the birth certificate process in any way. In other words, not in California, not in Colorado, not in Delaware, not in Illinois, not in Pennsylvania. NONE.

There is a guy on the Pittsburgh forum who went to U of Chicago law school and had him as a professor.

The grandfather provision of the "natural born Citizen" clause provided an exception to the "natural born" requirement for those persons who were citizens at the time of the adoption of the Constitution. (The first several Presidents prior to Martin van Buren as well as potential Presidential candidates such as Alexander Hamilton were born as British subjects in British America before the American Revolution and this grandfather clause would cover them.)[1]
Additionally, the Twelfth Amendment states that: "[N]o person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States." The Fourteenth Amendment does not use the phrase "natural born citizen". It does provide that "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."

"Subject to the jurisdiction" means no divided loyalty. A British subject is under the jurisdiction of Britain. duh
After all that constitution quoting, the last sentence is YOUR OPINION. It is NOT US law.

obviously congress didn't have a problem with it.
Congress passed a resolution declaring McCain a natural born citizen. Obama was one of the sponsors. If there had been ANY doubt about Obama's citizenship, the same would have been done.

I was no fan of McCain politically, but I thought that was the dumbest waste of time I had ever seen.

What frivolous interpretation of the 14th amendment, and idiots on the hill.
Yeah, the law is frivolous.

Everyone born in the 1960's has a paper trail. I do, you do, my husband does.
And so did Obama before 2007.

And, I've been reading this:

[338-17.8] Certificates for children born out of State. (a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.

There is a difference between COLBs issued to those who were born in hospitals with full documentation and those who were given Hawaiian birth status through an affidavit process.
All that crap was covered last summer. Every state has such laws. The birth place wil still state where the child was born.

I'm not interested in a COLB of a person born in another
country. You didn't have to send in your BC when you
renewed your passport, because they already have it on
file. So, they would have Obama's as well. That practice
of giving certificates of live birth to those not born in hospitals in HI, by affidavit, was going on long before 1982.

You can skip past the first guy .....


YouTube - Tim Adams Obama not born in Hawaii, Hawaii election official in 2008, No birth certificate

I feel exactly as Lou Dobbs feels on this issue:
"I personally believe Barack Obama is a citizen of the United States"

ASAP. Simply because it would make it a non issue.
It's really that simple.

And using the excuse, the birthers won't believe
that either, is just lame. There are many like me,
who aren't birthers - who simply say "what's
the problem".

If Obama won't produce it - makes folks like me
think, are he's just pompous - I don't have to
do that. An original birth certificate is a very
transparent document. It simply states where
you were born, the time you were born, and
by whom. The simple: who, what, where, and
when

To have your own press secretary laugh at a citizen with such little regard, simply because he is asking a very basic, common sense question, says more about arrogance than anything.

Here's McCain's original certificate of birth by the way.
Maybe Gibbs needs to be reminded of what one
actually looks like:
I actually WAS a young adult in the late 60s and into the 70s. I was not concerned about my birth certificate. I never once had to produce it to get a job, a marriage license, or anything other than (maybe) a driver's license and a SS card. My mom had it for a long time. I think she gave it to me some time after I got married.

Yes you are. You asked for his original copy and right now you are stating:

Only to those who believe the lies of birthers, who have invented fairy tales because they simply cannot accept that a black man with a foreign sounding name could ever win an election to be President of the United States.

These claims originated with racists, and are continued to be repeated by the racists who are birthers: Dr. Orly Tatiz, Andy Martin, Jerome Corsi, Joseph Farrah, Sharon Rondeau, Theresa Cao, just to name a few.

You don't mind repeating claims of racists do you.

Again you contradict yourself. You either ACCEPT a verified legal document that the State of Hawaii says that is what they issue, or you can wallow in your ignorance of the law and demand something that he cannot get and doesn't have in his possession.

IF HE had his original copy that he had seen amongst his mother's possessions, I'm sure he would have released it. But, he can't release something that was never in his possession.


As has been stated NUMEROUS times in this thread. THINGS get lost, YOU have had several posters, INCLUDING me who have stated over and over and over and over and over again that losing a Birth Certificate ISN"T at all surprising. YOU think that people should handle it the way YOU think they should, but we do not live in your "perfect' world. Things get lost. Things get stolen over time. Things get misplace. When it comes to official documents, YOU go to the agency that handles it, to request a copy. Obama did this in 2007.


What if Obama's house that his mother lived in, burned down while he was away at college and all the possessions, including that book he said his COLB was in was burned along with it? What do you think Obama could do at that point since now, no copy of his original exists?

THINK before you post.

^^Actually, the poster you quoted stated her own husband lost his birth certificate. If no one ever lost a BC, there would be no need to even be able to get a copy. When my kids were born, Boulder County, Colorado sent me ONE free copy, and stated that any further copies would carry a fee. I lost my younger daughter's BC somehow. I really don't know how. I ordered a second. I know, irresponsible of me. So put me in jail!
