White House releases full Obama birth certificate
In a gesture acknowledging the distracting effect that a false but persistent rumor has had on the Obama presidency, the White House yesterday released the long-form version of Barack Obama’s birth certificate, which showed that he was born in Honolulu.

Hawaii has two major newspapers, the Honolulu Advertiser and the Star Bulletin.
BOTH newspapers include birth announcements, and BOTH newspapers record the August 4th, 1961 birth of Barack Obama.

Now, McCain's (Rove's) useful idiots will scream that these are fakes, that they are part of this grand conspiracy by Obama's parents to smuggle a newborn baby from Kenya into Honolulu to obtain a birth certificate and birth announcements. But what is lacking in their story is MOTIVE. It's not like Obama's parents knew back then that Barack would go into politics, and need to be "Natural Born." Why bother with such a deception, which includes a very risky flight half way around the world with a newborn baby. Under US law, Barack is a US citizen no matter where he was born because his mother was an American citizen, born and raised in Kansas. The question of location is only relevant to the "Natural Born" requirement to be President. Barack's parents could not have known at the time of his birth that this would be an issue. continued

Birthers, Insanity, by Ezra Grant
At the time he was sworn into office on Jan­u­ary 20th 2009, the United States econ­omy was on the brink of a cliff with one foot already off the edge. On a monthly basis, over 500,000 peo­ple were los­ing their jobs. He walked into office with a deficit of 1.8 tril­lion dol­lars, and a pro­jected deficit of 8 tril­lion over 10 years, thanks to the poli­cies of his pre­de­ces­sor George Bush. Respect for Amer­ica was at an all time low, this too, due to the poli­cies of George Bush and the war in Iraq.

Birther Bill Sponsor Receives Financial Support From House GOP Leadership
The latest FEC filings show that Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL), the author and main sponsor of the infamous "Birther Bill" in the House to require Presidential candidates to submit proof of citizenship, is receiving financial support from some prominent people -- namely, the House GOP leadership, in their regular donations to GOP incumbents.

The Birthers in Congress
Seventeen men and women who are either enabling the fringe movement or having trouble admitting Obama is president.

"The only people that I know who are afraid to take drug tests are the people who use drugs," says Rep. Bill Posey. The Florida Republican is the author of the so-called "Birther" bill, which would require future presidential candidates to submit their birth certificates. The fact that President Obama has already submitted -- forgive the extension of Posey's metaphor -- a clean urine sample seems to be completely irrelevant. Whether it's out of cynicism, fear of the GOP base or a simple inability to read and reason, the ranks of Birthers in Congress seem to be growing.

Release of President Obama’s Long-Form Birth Certificate Was Stupid and Wrong
The American people have been well-served by this Birther story, for precisely the reasons President Obama gave to end it. While it did give rise to an absurdly popular Donald Trump candidacy, it also revealed to Americans the unserious nature of an absurdly large number of Republicans. This issue promised to be a crucible against which GOP candidates (as they eventually declared) could be judged sane or not.

Jon Stewart Takes Down The Media And Trump
For Obama Birth Certificate Controversy

Daily Show host Jon Stewart had a field day with the circus surrounding the White House’s presentation of President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Donald Trump’s subsequent… helicoptering.

All joking about Trump’s hair aside and ostentatious hobbies aside, Stewart brought up a great point: Why are so many outlets painting the revelation of Obama’s long-form birth certificate as “shocking news”? Wouldn’t the truly shocking news have been that Obama was not, in fact, an American citizen? Or that he was some sort of humanoid robot the entire time? Has the definition of “shocking” really changed so very dramatically? continued
