You asked: "Birthers and many Americans would like the President to produce a copy of his original birth certificate. So, what’s the problem Mr. President?"

Two things. First, the Certification of Live Birth, the new short-form birth certificate, is the official birth certificate of Hawaii. It is legal proof of birth in Hawaii. It is accepted as proof of birth in Hawaii by the US State Department and the branches of the military.

Second, Obama cannot show the original because he does not have it. Hawaii no longer sends out copies of the original. It only sends out the Certification of Live Birth. (http://www.starbulletin.com/columnists/kokualine/20090606_kokua_line.html)

Obama's own grandmother said she was there when he was born in Kenya. So the birth certificate they should be looking for is in Kenya. That would make the Hawaii birth certificate moot.

John M.

No, Obama's grandmother did not say she was there when he was born in Kenya. Here's the link to debunk that: http://www.salon.com/news/politics/war_room/2009/07/23/liddy

There's audio, so you can listen and not have to read words...

As a "stupid racist" I question the entire sealed records issue - ie his college days too.

But then again, sealing a liberal's records is OK while at the same time liberals thrive on using an opponent's records to tar and feather them.

Obama could put this whole thing to rest. Maybe he should release his college records while he's at it.

AcesOver, You make it sound as though Obama is some wimp that has no power to produce his own birth certificate. I guess a clerk in Hawaii trumps all.

AcesOver

YOU are implying that the President of the United States should use his power to get a document that ordinary people do not and cannot get. It is clear that Hawaii does not send out the original birth certificate anymore (http://www.starbulletin.com/columnists/kokualine/20090606_kokua_line.html).

So, three things follow. (1) He would be trying to do something that was unfair, since other people cannot get it. (2) He would be trying to do something that is unnecessary because the Certification of Live Birth is the official birth certificate, and the facts on it have been confirmed by the officials in Hawaii. and (3) He would be trying to do something that is unfair and unnecessary and it might not even work, since Hawaii might well refuse to do it

And, get this, he wrote in his book that his mother did not have a passport in 1961, so she could not have gone to Kenya.

"And, get this, he wrote in his book that his mother did not have a passport in 1961, so she could not have gone to Kenya"

Sounds like proof positive to me. Just like "These negotiations will be on C SPAN."

I think you are overrating Obama's integrity, and way underrating his ability to pull strings. First, when you say, "he would trying to do something that was unfair," it is laughable. Second, you say the officials in Hawaii "confirmed" the underlying facts on his birth certificate. Really? You know that to an absolute certainty? Then why not let them come out and give us the underlying information. Third, you are back to the ridiculous statement that Obama wouldn't do anything "unfair." His lack of integrity would take up a few hundred days of blogging.

Maybe it's just me, but anyone who would believe anything Hussein Obama says is someone we should pity. This president can't open his mouth without lying. Also, it's so typical of the leftist loonies to attach another label ("birthers") on people who question their unfounded claims. Since liberals can't argue with facts nor intellect they have to resort to name calling. Whether Obama is a citizen or not is important, but what worries me more is the fact that he's transforming this country into a Marxist dictatorship with strong leanings towards Islam. Remember, according to the anointed one, we're no longer a Christian nation.

You said: "you say the officials in Hawaii "confirmed" the underlying facts on his birth certificate. Really? "

Answer: Yes, here is the most recent of two statements;

"I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago...." (http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2009-07-27-obama-hawaii_N.htm)

You then said; "Why not let them come out and give us the underlying information."

Answer, because Hawaii does not send out copies of the original birth certificate anymore (http://www.starbulletin.com/columnists/kokualine/20090606_kokua_line.html).

AcesOver: I noticed all your statements of proof are from left wing publications. How about this one? He dropped out of Occidental College while admitting taking drugs instead of studying, then traveled to Indonesia, Pakistan and other mideast Islamic countries..on a foreign passport. Hard to figure out how he paid for all these travels when he had no money. By the way, he left the US as "Barry Sorreoto (or whatever)and came back from the mideast as Barack Hussein Obama. I'm sure Salon and USAToday have a ready explanation for that. If not, Chris Mathews surely would have.
