Will Release Of Obama's Purported Birth Certificate Give Rise To New "Certer" Movement?

This morning’s White House release of President Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate will, of course, do little to derail the “birther” movement, which will now analyze the document with the kind of verve previously directed toward those Texas Air National Guard memos faxed to CBS from that Kinko’s in Abilene.

So here’s a few nutty points about the birth certificate sure to be seized upon by the nonbelievers:

• 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?

• David A. Sinclair, the M.D. who purportedly signed the document, died nearly eight years ago at age 81. So he is conveniently unavailable to answer questions about Obama’s reported birth.

• 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.”

And why is the "M" in "P.M." in a completely different font in section 5b? Dan Rather, are you making trouble (and fake documents) again?!!
Because in the blank birth certificate forms, the M is in the form and whoever types up the form adds the A or P when they enter the time. My birth certificate 14 years later is the same way.
Don't. believe it. for. a. millisecond!
Obama's people have done in 3 years what anyone with a basic knowledge of Photoshop could have done in a couple of hours. They didn't even get it right.
You are exactly right! So out come the racist redneck remarks from the people too stupid to realize they are being duped by a con artist. Liberals are the most narrow minded, intolerant people. Sad they make the world worse for the rest of us.
As someone who has filled out four birth certificates, I find it interesting that the handwriting/ink of his mother's signature does not match the date at all. Also, as has been pointed out, in 1961, race of his father would have been colored or possibly "***" - NOT AFRICAN!
Also, it's good to know your superior intellect has been multiplied on this earth 4 times. Lucky us. Hopefully those apples fall as far as possible from the tree.
His dad was from "Africa" you Troglodyte. They weren't being PC, that's where he was from. You are an embarrassment to this country. Honestly people...This is the United States. If he was not eligible for presidency he wouldn't have made it through the door. End of story.
It doesn't say "country" it says "race". In 1961 I would think for race it would have said "ne gro".
I love seeing this comment from all the racist redneck hillbilly inbred yokels. It may well be that down in Klan's Hood, TN you guys persisted in calling black people ***es into the 1960s. That doesn't mean the rest of the nation was as dimwitted and backwards as you are. Heck, you teabaggers still think interracial marriage should be illegal. You have zero credibility, redneck.
