    Huh?

    How in the world does his birth certificate have anything to do with his college transcripts? How on earth does releasing his long-form birth certificate (something that he cannot do under the law) in any way cause those other records to be released?

    That makes no sense whatsoever.

    He can't just release anything. The law does not allow that. The law says COLB is what gets released. That's it. Period. End of story. Been that way since 1974.

    I'v worked with government agencies way too long to be impressed by state statutes governing state agencies. If the President of the United States wanted a copy of his own long form birth certificate, he'd get it. The Certification of Live Birth may be all the state will issue to the hoi polloi but I'm sure they can come up with a genuine Certificate of Birth when requested by President on the grounds that it is of vital interest (as it is).

    and considering the guy was suppose to provide it YEARS ago as an Illinois State Senator, then as a Federal Senator and never did so, shows the guy doesn't have any respect for the rule of law to begin with.

    And this is what every birther argument eventually devolves to: "he's the President, so he can get it." Well, no, the law does not say that, and Presidents are not above the law. Not even the Obamessiah.


    There's all sorts of other shit he hasn't released. Focusing on his birth certificate, when he has already done exactly what he would have to do to get a passport (which would also be automatic proof of Presidential eligibility), is just fuggin stoopid.

    He did provide it. The COLB is legal proof that he was born in Hawaii, no matter how much people try to claim that it isn't. It is exactly what the State Department expects when they issue passports.

    he spent YEARS not providing ANYTHING, not to the IL State Senate and then not to the US Senate in clear violation of the law, that was my point.

    frankly i couldn't care less about his birth, the asstard is not fit to run a Taco Bell let alone the United States of America

    No, he cannot just go get his long form birth certificate. The Hawaii law is clear. Even if you're the President of the United States, you don't get to see your original birth certificate. Hawaii keeps the original on file and no one gets to go see their own or anyone else's. The law makes it crystal clear that it is illegal for the Department of Health to show the original birth certificate to people. So no, he cannot just request that it be released and then that happens. What they will give out is a COLB, which has already been seen a million times over.

    You can, however, all by yourself, send an SASE and $10 to the Department of Health in Hawaii and they will send you back a letter, complete with state seal on it, that will confirm that yes, they do indeed have a birth record for Barack Obama born in Hawaii in August of 1961. Hawaii is, to the best of my knowledge, the only state in the union that will actually do this for anyone who is willing to pay the fee and postage.
    So if he is so concerned (and hiding behind Hawaii law), why is he spending millions to keep it hidden? It should cost him nothing. Unless of course the release reveals something he doesn't want revealed? Of course most of his millions is spent keeping his poor academic records out of the public eye. We wouldn't be able to handle the drama of proving that the smartest man in America is DUmber than the average fifth grader.

    Apparently he is. The court ruled OBlah Blha care unconstitutional. O Blah Blah pushes ahead.

    He's not. That's simply untrue.

    It does cost him nothing. He hasn't spent any money to keep his birth certificate "secret."

    Actually, all of his money that he has spent on these issues revolves around things other than his birth certificate..
