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.”

Hypocrisy. If this were a republican administration, the liberals and press would be howling.
Liberals can read history and learn nothing from it.
There is a specific requirement for someone to be president. You must be natural born as defined in the Constitution and its supporting documents. It requires that both parents be US citizens and be born on US soil. This prevents a Manchurian Candidate from masquerading as a loyal leader. Remember, the president has control over the most potent military power in history. Obama only made one out of three of the requirements,. If McCain was not born on US soil, he would not be eligible to be President.
Wrong, it requires that you are a natural born US citizen. Obama's mother was a US citizen, therefore even if he was born elsewhere, he's still a citizen. Mitt Romney's father or grandfather was born in Mexico, but seeing as how he was born to citizens, he was a naturally born citizen.
Senator Lindsey Graham is asking for a photo of Obama's body... Want's to know it has not been released.
He wants a picture of POTUS Obama's body???? That sound really freaky
Yes, reading it now... it's rather funny. Ooops.
Osama's body? Why would Obama kill Osama if it was George Bush that brought down the World Trade Center?
My mistake... didn't realize I mispelled Osama's name. Senator Graham is also questioning the quick burial... Just so you know, Joy Behar is saying that we should just do away with the 2012 elections. Unbelievable... she should just physically bow down to Obama and get it over with. If Bush was President she would be attacking him. I am disgusted by the double standard.
On what grounds and purpose is doing away with the 2012 elections?
