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.”

save him from a small number of people who still care about the certificate? Newsflash, birther, nothing was going to happen over that before Osama was killed. Even Trump let the matter go. What color are the clouds on your world?
Obama, you must prove that you are a "natural born citizen" or you should be removed immediately. It is your constitutional responsibility to prove that you are qualified.
Where's your birth certificate, green card, naturalization certificate or certificate of citizenship to prove that you are a citizen of the United States to legally live and reside in the United States???? Are you a male, female, fat, skinny, rich, poor, employed, unemployed and how many times have you've been arrested by the police?
are you kidding me, parrot? The man gave the order to take down Osama Bin Laden. You birther nutters have become even more of a non-issue than you were already.
The US Constitution requires that the president be a "natural born" citizen, not just a citizen. If he is not a "natural born" citizen, then he does not qualify to be president. It is his duty to prove his eligibility. He must prove it to be president or he is a usurper.
Simple: Obama owes us the truth about his birth and citizenship. If it is not forthcoming, he should be impeached or allowed to resign. He may not even be an American citizen. He may be the Manchurian Candidate.
I voted for Obama to prove that I am not a racist. Now who do I vote for to prove that I am not an idiot?
To Stella. Voting won't prove you're not an idiot. You've proved you're an idiot already.
