Obama releases birth form, decries ‘silliness’

Published: Wed, April 27, 2011 @ 10:30 a.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Responding to critics’ relentless claims, President Barack Obama today produced a detailed Hawaii birth certificate in an extraordinary attempt to bury the issue of where he was born and confirm his legitimacy to hold office. He declared, “We do not have time for this kind of silliness.” By going on national TV from the White House, Obama portrayed himself out as a voice of reason amid a loud, lingering debate on his birth status. Though his personal attention to the issue elevated it as never before, Obama said to his critics and the media, it is time to move on to bigger issues.

No time for what should have been done years ago? Why not? He isn't doing anything else.

Wow, it took this long to figure out where and when he was born and to get a copy? It usually only takes 15 minutes tops here!!

Finally, after 3 years of questioning this issue, the president releases a certified copy of the original birth certificate. He could have put this nonsense to bed long ago. It appears that Donald Trump forced the president's hand to not only release it, but to conduct a news conference on this issue. Big, big win for the Trumpster! The leader of the free world cowers to a vain billionaire! Trump appears to be setting the agenda. Apparently, the Donald is driving the bus. Barack Hussein Obama must be reading the polls. YOU'RE FIRED!!!!

I don't understand why it took so long. That was silly. Being that he waited so long, he should have just waited until next year's election to give himself an edge by revealing there was no issue around Nov 1.

I can't believe I'm hearing dirty little Youngstowners commenting on the validity of Obama's birth....next time you all look through your resume and see a diploma from Harvard or Columbia, then you can comment on this....Obama's WAYYYYY above any of you rats....so stop with the right wing nutiness...you all look damn dumb. Go back to living in your shi*tty little homes of your sh*tty little weak, small ancestors that nearly destroyed this country. [and will if we (the smart ones) don't do something about it.]

"This would not have been an issue if he produced it three years ago."

The CIA didn't have them manufactured yet . In the interest of National Security they put their best talent to work on getting the document .

The certificate that was produced in 2007 is not a copy of the original. The copy released today is a certified photocopy of the original signed certificate, which should totally put this nonsense to bed, once and for all. This looks very similar to my birth certificate that even indicates I was a "legitimate" birth. Doesn't Barack Hussein Obama have an original one that he could have just made a copy of? What did he have to hide from the Clinton's since it was Hillary's campaign that requested it?

I've been following Presidential politics for 40 years going back to Nixon. Never saw one white candidate for President asked to produce a birth certificate.

This is why we're going down the tubes folks. This country really kicked into gear from 1880 to 1920 when we took in immigrants by the boatload. The resulting hard work and initiative made us the greatest country in the world.

Now that we're an aging nation, all of the sudden the black and the brown and the other "colored" people of the world frighten us.

Well, we better bring the hungry and striving of those people in again just like 100 years ago or this country is doomed to a long, slow decline as China, India, and other nations pass us by.

walter....You're correct, the birth certificate in the link from FactCheck is not a copy of the original, it IS the original. Read the FactCheck link, they viewed the original and photographed it. Do you doubt FactCheck or are they part of the conspiracy too?

fattynskinnynstupid.....The voices in your head are lying to you and the rest of us are laughing at you.

mao @ "omg the dr is dead!"

Jrolley--- I love it!

so is his mother....by that logic i guess that means he wasn't even born at all. in fact, he probably came from another planet. he's like kang from the simpsons and michelle is kodos.

for the past 2 years, these loons have been kicking and screaming for a birth certificate. now that they finally got their wish, they scream "omg why didnt you do it 2 years ago. its fake cuz the dr is dead" damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.

The certificate on the factcheck.org website is not a copy of the original record. It is a short form birth certificate that the state of Hawaii issues every citizen that requests one at a later date. If you study the stamp in photo #9, it states "I certify this is a true copy or ABSTRACT of the record on file". This was certainly sufficient proof that Obama was an American citizen. The copy released yesterday is of the original record on file. I mean, it does have the signature of his mother and she is now dead. (Or, is she?) Anyway Obama is as American as anyone; he was raised in this country, under our system of values and beliefs, and is a good AMERICAN.

However, he let the Donald frame this argument and felt he had to respond to him. Obviously, he is reading the polls. I agree with the president when he said that we have more important problems and issues and it is time to put this silliness to rest just before he and Michele boarded Air Force One to be on Oprah's show and finishing the day at a couple of campaign stops to raise some money.
