Good News! Biden Not The Real President!

After much agitation from the “birther” crowd, and the recent pressure from Donald Trump, President Obama finally released his long-form birth certificate. And it is wholly unremarkable:

The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn’t good for the country. It may have been good politics and good TV, but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country. Therefore, the President directed his counsel to review the legal authority for seeking access to the long form certificate and to request on that basis that the Hawaii State Department of Health make an exception to release a copy of his long form birth certificate. They granted that exception in part because of the tremendous volume of requests they had been getting.

Pres. Obama\'s Long Form Birth Certificate

Nothing about whether his parents were married, or what his religion is, or really anything else. Just the fact that he was born in Honolulu (which many of us already knew).

Of course, the fully committed will still carry on with the conspiracy theory, but hopefully those who were simply skeptical because Obama was so reluctant to release the document will now be satisfied. And then maybe we can all concentrate on the myriad real world reasons why Obama is unqualified to be President of the United States.

  • my, my.  there’s a real live, honest to allah birther right cheer on qando. they even let him start threads!  bravo, mike. bravo!
     

  • pedro’s been into the tequila, he totally missed the sarcasm in michael’s post.  a bit like kramer’s grand entrance into the ball as george’s date.  good thing pedro is not proud.
     

    • at 6:21 am?
       
      Or is it the hangover that’s the problem? If so, I am with you man.

    • I thought it was illegal (sort of) to nuance humor, yet Michael does just that.   Shame, shame, shame.   Pedro has a great point, and yet you seek to minimize his attempt at nuanced humor.  Too bad.

  • Consider the other side of this … all those court cases costing how many millions of dollars. The man has no sense of the value of a dollar because it’s always somebody else’s dollar that he is spending.

    • This is why Obama needed to release a copy of the original COLB, Hawaii issues birth certificates for children not born there.  If you believe otherwise, please explain this Hawaiian law.

      Certificates for children born out of State. (a)  Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.”

  • It’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up. Where are Øbama’s school records?, His term papers, his Passport records, where are his Voting records for Cripes sakes. Does it occur to anyone Øbama has spent millions covering his tracks? Doesn’t this raise the tinniest red flag with you folks? That he has spent more money than most of us will ever see in our lifetimes, hiding something? Can you trust a man who doesn’t trust you? NPR’s response: “how ’bout those birthers?”, your tax dollars at work, folks.

    • Of course, the reason for the “cover-up” could be as simple as they didn’t want the narrative created by “Dreams ..” etc. to be disrupted.
      These campaigns seem to have a high-octane does of myopic stupidity that goes hand-in-hand with politics.

    • 1) The “Ø” is not clever. It makes you look like a crank at worst, and at best like you’re living in permanent High School. (Think of any Kos Kiddie or DU-style “slam” at President Bush. You Are Doing The Same Thing.)
      2) Nobody cares. Seriously, nobody cares about the man’s passport records. (Indeed, they’re none of anyone’s business, are they? How could they be?) And his school records? Again, who cares?
      Voting records? What voting records? All his votes as a Senator are recorded just like everyone else’s, no?
      There’s no coverup if there’s no crime. And tail-dragging on releasing information that was “demanded” yet that was, in fact, not evidence of any wrongdoing, is not a coverup.
      I submit that you’re doing exactly what Obama and his handlers would most like – marginalizing the opposition (yourself!) by obsessing over irrelevant paranoid fantasies.
      Like Mike said, there are real, important, public, obvious reasons why the man’s not a very good President. Why not focus on those?

      • I submit that you’re doing exactly what Obama and his handlers would most like – marginalizing the opposition (yourself!) by obsessing over irrelevant paranoid fantasies.
         
        Bingo.
         
        One wonders why Obama didn’t leave the catnip blooming a little while longer.

        • Because he was getting burned by it.  You don’t think he would have kept it up forever if he could?

        • Agreed. This is making the Tea Party Birther types look like cranks. It’s an interesting strategic move – let them whine scream etc about Obama being a non-American, let them constantly make idiotic statements in an attempt to outdo each other, then release this. There is now so much campaign fodder to use against the Tea Party Birther types it won’t even be funny.

  • “The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn’t good for the country.”

     
    Yeah that’s why this took so long.  That and it might serve as a distraction for whatever he is doing.

    • Its the finishing blow to Trump. 

      The media treated his comments with tunnel vision on the b.c. issue ignoring anything else he said.  And rarely did let his remarks exist in context.  Like you said, they were more about Obama’s withholding it than what was actually in it. 

      And he opposed Obama, so that finished him with the left.  And he said we need to re-evaluate our trade relationship with China and that finished him with FoxNews. 

      • I think Trump turned it pretty fast. Now Trump can go onto the next thing. Who’s reacting to who, now?
        I don’t even think Trump is a serious candidate, but Obama is having to deal with him 18 months BEFORE the election. Its priceless.
        Getting rid of the birther nonsense now is being hailed as a victory by the Dems, but I think its actually a GOP victory.
        Trump is thick-skinned, so he doesn’t care what anyone thinks. Look at his hair.

        • Yeah, the issue is mostly behind us.  But they will try to tie any other questions about Obama’s past with the birther issue.
           
          I think the fact that many states were requiring proof of citizenship to register for the primary probably prompted this.  Spending money and energy fighting those with Trump attacking him for wasting money fighting it wouldn’t have looked very good.

        • Getting rid of the birther nonsense now is being hailed as a victory by the Dems, but I think its actually a GOP victory.

          It’s hard to say how Obama’s BC maneuver will play out. On one hand it seems to lay to rest rumors and will inspire more contorted conspiracy arguments that the Obama campaign can exploit later. On the other hand voters may wonder why Obama waited so long to release such a harmless document and wonder about all the other information we lack from the president who promised transparency.

      • Donald is not done, he gets stronger.  Okay so he posted his “fake” birth certificate.  He didn’t even go to school here!!!!  Let’s get real here.  Obama is a true fake, not born in America, not schooled in America (try Kenya!!!), and a total and complete fake.  Trump is THE mainstream conservative that unseats this fake Ugandan/Kenyan.  I want to see all of his school records, all of them!!!  He cannot!!

  • He finally released his virth certificate.  Now, what’s it going to take to get him to release the rest of his histroy that he has kept under wraps for so long.

    I find it funny that within days of Tiger Woods encounter with a tr4ee and a golf club in fron of his house, there were leterally thousands of people actively searching for the real reason why.  And once a single female voice was heard, the rush was truly on with everybody and his dog trying to outdo the others in finding the next Tiger Girlfriend.  Within days no less than 9 women surfacedd with stories of Tiger’s infidelity – but is there anybody within the journalistic circles out there trying to find out why Obama keeps his school records secret?

    Here’s a hint journalists of the world – you want a pulitzer?  Find out why Obama is hiding all of his personal records.  What is so important that “the most transparent President in history” (his words) keeps all of his school records sealed.

    • SShill gets it, and I totally agree with him/her.  Mini Tru, has NO legitimate educational record or it would be released, WAY before now.  School records should not be secret, even if they might have been excellent, but obviously are not!!  Come on Meme lets see your real records.  Mini Tru is a fake, and his recently released so called birth certificate is a total fake.
      Nice try, however, busted again.
       

      • Come on brow, you can do better than this. Can’t help but think you got deep into what made Milwaukee famous with these sock-puppet remarks. Go back to “Kevin” and play straight.

  • virth – birth – whatever!

  • Good News! Biden Not The Real President!
    I find the ‘good news’ part of that statement questionable.

  • I was born in Hawaii at Kapeolani Maternity hospital in 1958.  I have my long form certificate.
    Mine has the name and signature of the attending physician and is a mimeographed form with a totally different authorizing stamp on it. 

    Further mine has more data field blocks on it than does this one.
    Now, I was born when Hawaii was a territory not a state so in the 3 years Hawaii may have changed it’s forms.

    But it in no way looks like this one.

    • New stock, new design, new purchaser, new etc.  All kinds of reasons that are perfectly normal.  Stuff changes.
       
      Also since you’re looking at an era that was dealing with the rise of photostatic copying, it’s possible they really were trying to make backgrounds that confused copiers, though color photo copy was still down the road quite a bit.

  • Like I said here back in 2008, the BC is the KEY to toppling this usurper pResident.  Here is the 18-point undeniable PROOF:

    1. Obama travelled to Pakistan in 1981 on an Indonesian passport while there was a US travel ban
    2. Maya Soetero has a Hawaiian COLB despite being Indonesian
    3. Obama’s paternal grandmother said on tape he was born in Kenya
    4. Indonesia only allows citizens to attend their schools
    5. Michelle said he was born in Kenya
    6. The internet Kenyan document with the footprint is his true BC
    7. Obama spent $2 million to prevent the BC from being released
    8. His Kenyan father disqualifies him from being Natural Born
    9. His real father was commie Frank Marshall Davis
    10. No one lived at the address listed on his supposed COLB
    11. The short form omits where his religion is shown as Muslim
    12. He has dual-citizenship and therefore disqualified since the Founders did not want ‘Divided Loyalties’
    13. The Nordyke twins have lower BC numbers despite being born after BO
    14. Obama used 39 fake social security numbers and his current one is from CT where he never lived
    15. He obtained student loans by claiming to be foreign student
    16. The AFRICAN race on his BC should be NEGRO thereby proving it is a fake
    17. The short form COLB is a forgery, as verified by internationally respected document experts TechDude and Polarik
    18. And the smoking gun: Using elite computer hackery, the PDF long form was found to have layers in Adobe Illustrator thereby proving it was also a manufactured document!
