Wednesday morning, the White House released a copy of the long-form Birth Certificate from the state of Hawaii.  The release was done in response to requests by “birthers” which according to the White House, had become a distraction.  You can read the full release from the White House here.

    All presidential hopefuls should have to provide this BEFORE the election. I didn’t realize the president is actually “the 2nd”. (II)

    Not sure why this took so long to produce.

      Macdonald’s counter staff have to provide this basic info.
      You would think the highest office in the country might be held to similar standards,

      Oh wait, Obama is excepted from all former rules and laws, I forgot.

    2. google-it says:

    Wait a second, so Obama sent someone to Hawaii to pick up this birth certificate NOW, after spending 2 years in office and visiting Hawaii at least 2 times that I am aware of.

    He couldn’t just have it sent using the USPS? No we have to fly someone there ti pick it up?

    I’m guessing the Mr Obama didn’t pick up that cost, me and you did, and some people want MORE government.

    What a joke.
