birth cerificates (plural)

In March 2008 people were asking, "who is Barack Obama," and one of the questions they were asking was, "is Obama a Muslim?" Another question was, "is his middle name Muhammed?"

In the process of researching an email rumor about Obama's name, Politifact, the political blog at the St. Petersburg Times in Florida, reported that the Obama campaign refused to provide the newspaper with a copy of Obama's birth certificate.

On June 12, 2008, the Obama campaign sent an e-mail to PolitiFact with a copy of the senator's "birth certificate" as an attachment.

On the same day, the Daily Kos received a copy. Kos states on the Daily Kos web page that introduced Obama's COLB that the electronic image came from the Obama campaign.

When sharp-eyed cynics said, "Hey! Where's the state seal?" Where's the signature block?" The Obama campaign responded. They're tenacious. They hung in there, and finally got it right. They folded the document (like it was mailed). The made the black stuff over the certification number go away. They added the state seal, and signature block. Mirabile visu!! A wonder to behold! Obama's bogus COLB has finally arrived.

Around August 21, 2008, staffers had a meeting at Obama campaign headquarters. describes that event: staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate. We conclude that it meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. citizenship. Claims that the document lacks a raised seal or a signature are false. We have posted high-resolution photographs of the document as "supporting documents" to this article. Our conclusion: Obama was born in the U.S.A. just as he has always said.

Also, if you missed it, meet the only 2 people to examine the COLB(s), and one of them wasn't Bill O'Reilly or Anderson Cooper, and they have absolutely no credentials as forensic document examiners.

That's the thing with Obama. Someone uncovers a falsehood, and the story changes, and changes, and changes. Sooner or later they get it right, and it's no big deal. And, you're the one that's crazy!

And remember the wisdom of Hawaii Health Department Communications Officer, Janice Okubo, who said, "I don't know that it's possible for us to even say beyond a doubt what the image on the site represents."

The Kenyan, always broke and always asking his sponsors for more money, lived like a hermit in a small, rented room at 625 11th Avenue. Except for a short stay at the Atherton YMCA when he first arrived in Hawaii, The Kenyan lived at that address until he left Hawaii on June 22,1962

Obama continued to promote the myth that The Kenyan left Stanley Ann and Baby Barry when the infant was two years old. That story is just nonsense!

On September 11, 2009, in a speech to America's schoolchildren, Obama repeated one of his most flagrant lies from "Dreams...," saying, "My father left my family when I was 2 years old, and I was raised by a single mom who had to work and who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasn't always able to give us the things that other kids had."

So why was all this lying necessary?
