Extention of earlier "birther" question...

What is the problem with the birth certificate? I have seen pictures from various sources of people holding and inspecting the certificate. I'm just wondering what is the basis for the continued disbelief in the validity?

Second question: If Obama WAS born in HI, is there any reason to believe that he is still ineligible for the Presidency?

Just wondering. I'm genuinely curious.

  • From what I have read, the birth certificate that has been shown is actually a Certificate of Live Birth which HI will grant to anyone born ANYWHERE (in HI or anywhere in the WORLD). That is the sticky part, there are 2 birth certificates in HI, one that says you where born somewhere and it was recorded in HI and one that says you were born in HI.

    If he was born in HI, no problem. But he hasn't shown the one that is only given to babies born in HI and nowhere else.

  • He was born in HI and has proven such

    People still question it because they have a raw hatred for the man

    This gives them reason

  • If Obama was born in Hawaii, he's an American citizen. Period. End of story.

  • The second question would depend on duel citizenship and again we don't have the answers to that either. There is evidence to support he did have and there is evidence to support he did not. The problem with any of it is...he will not allow his records to be released that would put an end to all of it. Our question is why? By not being open and honest about that, and his other records, he opens the door to speculations and accusations from all sides. Is he a citizen, is he not.....does he have duel citizenship, does he not.....was he born in Hawaii, was he not....We don't know the answers to any of this. If his birth records are really in Hawaii, all it would take would be his approval to release it and he will not do it....WHY??

    So say the left. He has not proven it and will not release the information that will prove it. We question it because he spends tons to keep it hidden..Why??

  • Actually, goodwitch, the law states that if you are born on US soil, you are a natural born American citizen.

    Now, as I have not said anything negative about anyone at all, why would my question be removed?? Is it to avoid bashing in the answers, or because someone believes that I am bashing?

  • The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution states that anyone born in the US is a citizen of the US.
