State Declares Obama Birth Certificate Real, Again

State officials again are confirming that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.

Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said Monday she has seen the
original birth records that verify Obama was born in Hawaii, and is
a "natural-born American citizen."

Fukino made the announcement in hopes of ending any lingering
rumors about Obama's citizenship. She issued a similar press
release Oct. 31.

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

Some Obama critics claim he is ineligible to be president, arguing he was not born in the U.S., as the Constitution requires.

They have challenged his citizenship in court.

    Great info Nick, but I guess since he was born in Hawaii 2 years after it became a state, he is still a US citizen. Do you have an email copy of his supposed 'Kenyan' birth certificate that the crazy birthers are ciruclating? Have you seen the birth announcements from the two Hawaii newspapers from way back in '61? I am pretty sure he wasn't groomed to be a president from birth, so 'fixing' two birth announcements back in '61 would see like a really big waste of everyone's time. OSOC, I'll take you out to lunch, I know how hard the taxman is on you engineers......

    Lavon, if you are so educated, why don't you spell squealing correctly?You try to make everyone think that you are so smart, but we can see right through your little act.

    Excuse me DJ, he kept his campaign promises? Please get a TV or Radio, maybe internet. You have "not been paying attention". So, you card will be marked, doesn't pay attention in class. Geitner just told us that we are going to pay more taxes due to the high debt and deficit. I am pretty sure Obama said no one under 200 thousand would be effected. Well, now, if you work, make an income, you are now effected. This guy is the president of the liars club and you were fool enough to vote for him. Wanda, have you got any change, I need some for lunch today.

    Tommy apparently must resort to ad hom attacks because he is incapable of answering a legitimate legal challenge. Derek, the 14th amendment only defines citizens; it does NOT define natural born citizens. There's a difference. The U.S. Code cannot properly define natural born citizens, either; that would be a violation of the Constitution's supremacy clause in Article VI. The only valid definition of a "natural born citizen" is whatever the term would have meant at the time of ratification. The U.S. Supreme Court in Minor v. Happersett even tells us that we must resort to external sources --- implicitly those from the founders' own day, of which Vattel would be a key example --- to discern the meaning of the term.

    You'd love for Obama to quit, but that would make him a Republican.

    Wanda, Exactly!! The attitude being exhibited by the "birthers" is exactly what the majority (remember "rule of the majority") voted to change last November. And, lo and behold, a politician is keeping his campaign promises!! I bet the right wing sure didn't expect that since none of their boys and girls ever kept their campaign promises. The winds of change are blowing. Better deal with it!!

    WHO CARES! PEOPLE who do NOT want CHANGE should be left behind. Those of US who support CHANGE support OUR President.
