For you "Obama was born in Kenya" losers

    (HONOLULU) — State officials in Hawaii on Monday said they have once again checked and confirmed that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen, and therefore meets a key constitutional requirement for being president.

    Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said she hoped to end lingering rumors about Obama's birthplace. (Read "Certified American.")

    "I ... have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen," she said in a brief statement. "I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago."

    So-called "birthers" — who claim Obama is ineligible to be president because, they argue, he was actually born outside the United States — have grown more vocal recently on blogs and television news shows.

    Fukino issued a similar press release Oct. 31, but was prompted to speak out again because of the renewed attention on Obama's beginnings. Hawaii's Health Department has been flooded in recent weeks with questions from individuals and several national TV news networks asking for proof that Obama was indeed born in Hawaii.

    "They just keep asking over and over and over again," Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo said.

    The Constitution states that a person must be a "natural-born citizen" to be eligible for the presidency. Birthers contend that Obama's birth certificate is a fake, and many say he was actually born in Kenya, his father's homeland. They've challenged his citizenship in court.

    One widely circulated YouTube clip of a town hall meeting showed a Republican congressman getting booed for saying Obama is a citizen. Talk show host Rush Limbaugh and CNN's Lou Dobbs have also raised the issue, and 10 Republican members of Congress co-sponsored a bill that would require future presidential candidates to provide a copy of their original birth certificate.

    However, it appears Congress has moved on and has accepted Obama's island birthplace. The U.S. House on Monday unanimously approved a resolution recognizing and celebrating the 50th anniversary of Hawaii becoming the 50th state. A clause was included that reads: "Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961."

    State law bars the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.

    However, Obama's birth certificate along with birth notices from the two Honolulu newspapers were brought forward even before he took office. But that's done nothing to shake the belief by many Obama critics that the president was born abroad.
  2. I'm not a birther or whatever they are called but why doesn't he just release them?

    State law bars the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.

    Doesn't ever american citizen have a tangible interest in knowing if their leader was really a citizen?

    So why doesn't he let people see the records?

    How does the Hawaii dept of health representative know he's a natural born citizen, when it hasn't been defined in the constitution what a natural born citizen is and the left's argument as to what it is has been blown to smithereens just yesterday with the finding of a supreme court case that specifically said it had not been defined in the constitution. (the left said that the 14'th amendment defined it, but, alas, is doesn't.) minor v happersett

    Where are they going to hang the plaque signifying that Obama was born in Hawaii. Normally, it would be hung at his place of birth. So, where EXACTLY should it be hung. ( not some vague answer like 'hawaii')

    Keep dreaming that it's over.

    edit: In addition, the gesture yesterday by Hawaii was not one of strength, but rather one that shows they are <u>running scared</u>. Why do I say that? Glad you asked.

    I say it because it was only hours after the minor v happersett case was found to blow apart the lefts case on natural born citizenship that the hawaii people made their effort to stem the tide.

    They needed to because they could no longer rely on a foreign birth to be bailed out by the fourteenth amendment, and the changing of the law regarding how old his mother was when she gave birth and how long she resided in the country after that, etc.

    You see, with the new information found with minor v happersett, if Obama was born out of the country, <i>he is automatically disquallified from the presidency</i>. But, it is an open question that has not been decided by the supreme court as to his natural born status if he was born in the country. That's why they needed to pull out all the stops and try to convince everyone he was born in the country. And they did it just <i>hours</i> after the new information was found, suggesting that they are <i>scared</i>.
  4. He has released them

    When a request is made for a copy of a birth certificate, the DOH issues a Certification of Live Birth.

    Although original birth certificates (Certificates of Live Birth) are preferred for their greater detail, the State Department of Health (DOH) no longer issues Certificates of Live Birth.

    The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands accepts both Certificates of Live Birth (original birth certificate) and Certifications of Live Birth because they are official government records documenting an individual’s birth.



  5. Trusting the government not to lie to us now, are we?

  6. If its not over please tell us whats going to happen.I would really like to know what is going through your heads and what you guys are hoping for :)
  7. Obama > Bush

    It's funny how some guys dispose Obama because of some citizenship claim (which has proven to be bullsh!t). How about you cowards get your acts together and complain about a president who: invaded a country that had never attacked us, nor had anything to do with 9/11 or possessed any weapons of mass destruction.
