Don't forget that Obama's birth was also noted by a Hawaii newspaper published
when it happened. If you believe that the newspaper was altered, then you have
read Orwell's 1984 one time too many because it was microfilmed years ago, long
before Obama rose to prominence.
John: He isn't required too and the issue is not even worth addressing further.
The State of Hawaii has indicated that he was born in Hawaii, he released a
short form, issued by the State, and that is enough. The long form is, frankly,
no ones business (and a protected record of the State of Hawaii) and is there
simply for the State of Hawaii Health Dept. to keep records of live births and
deaths, doctor info, hospital info, etc. Get over it already.
If B.O. has nothing to hide, then why is he hiding so many documents and so much
information about his past?Several liberal media pundits (who accept
his claims) have admitted he should show is long-form birth certificate to shut
down the birthers once and for all.He won't. Why?
The reading of the Constitution was cheap political theater. They might as well
have had Lee Greenwood sing it while baking an apple pie. And curious that the
brave defenders of the "original" Constitution wouldn't read the whole
thing.And while the Republicans are frantically trying to distance
themselves from the crazy Birther hollerer, the fact remains that 40% of people
who identify as Republicans still have doubts about the President's
citizenship.They have given the reins to the fringe.
So, did anyone count to see just how many of the members of Congress sat in
their seats and listened to the Constitution reading? Without that vital
information, the whole thing looks like a stunt.
Lady? Chill, and listen, you as well as many members of Congress may learn
something. Why the trick to disrupt? Is that not anti-American? Even many
members of Congress need to hear what they swore to uphold, just chill, and let
the cards lay as they lay.
DN editor: In the last month a majority of my comments have been withheld, for
reasons I don't understand. Below is my current comment, which I posted over an
hour ago. Is something wrong with this comment? Have I broken one of the
rules? Have I offended one of you? Please let me know so I can correct my
comments and get back into your good graces. Thank you.Now my
comment (again):If you're going to read the Constitution, then read
it. Any abbreviated version or summary isn't the whole Constitution.The Legislative Branh has become so partisan, and sub-partisan, they can't
even read the entire Constitution!They must be fearful that it will
prompt some discussion that doesn't fit their views.

That's nice.How about if I think your information is
'vital for every living American?'"Well, then that would expose
how vacuous your thought processes are. If you really can't make a distinction
between JDL's effect on 'every living American', and the President's, then you
need to spend less time on these boards. For the reocrd, thought, I
think Obama's birth bona fides have been established.
I think this should be required before every new session of the House and Senate
@ Pagan | 2:26 p.m. Jan. 6, 2011 Because he is not the President
America 1st: She was a Democrat / MSM plant to create a news diversion from the
Honorable act of Congress reading the Constitution...Paranoid a
little?and all the racists at the teahaudist gatherings were plants.Honorable act, or costly waste of money, This just grandstanding.

Jan. 6, 2011 That's nice. How about if I think your
information is 'vital for every living American?' This continues to
be a goad by conservatives to create, yet another, non issue. His
birth certificate HAS been verified. By the Director of health AND the Gov. of
Hawaii. If you choose not to believe them, I cannot help you. FYI, McCain was born in the Panamal Canal. *'McCains Canal
Zone Birth Prompts Queries About Whether That Rules Him Out' - By CARL HULSE -
NY Times - 02/28/08 '...and the happenstance of his birth in the
Panama Canal Zone in 1936 are...' No one ever asks' for McCain's
'long form' birth certificate. Why is that?
@ StenarAre you kidding me? Every piece of legislation should be
debated in context of the Constitution for days and weeks and months if
necessary.@ Pagan: You wrote "State law (Hawaii Revised
Statutes Â§338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to
persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record,"The Very constitution they were reading REQUIRES that one be a natural born
citizen to be the President of the United States. I see that as "Tangible
Interest" in the vital record for every living American!!!
American First | 1:28 p.m. Jan. 6, 2011 She was a Democrat / MSM
plant...' Evidence please. Because apparently the
Director of the Hawaii State Department of Health isn't enough for you.
Stenar,Don't you remember the comments from one of the dems at a town hall
before Obamacare was passed? he said he didn't care what the Constitution said,
he wanted to pass Obamacare. Maybe they all need to study the document a little
closer, after all, their oath of office calls on them to defend it.
If the Republicans had read the 3/5ths compromise section they would be
denounced. The NYT in its snide comments on the reading said this clause made
"African-Americans only 3/5ths of a person".This is just
false. Free blacks in both the north and the south were fully counted for
purposes of representation, although only about 6 states allowed them to vote
before the civil war (Maine, New Hamshire, vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island
and maybe Ohio). Exactly what laws does congress desperately need
to pass? The house by-and-large gets way more done than the senate, so do not
get on their case for at times being deliberate.
She was a Democrat / MSM plant to create a news diversion from the Honorable act
of Congress reading the Constitution...Liberals really are dispicable.
I wish the Congress would get busy passing legislation and not using up the time
allotted for working on legislation by reading the Constitution. I'm sure
they've all read it in its entirety before and if they want to read it again,
they can do so on their own time.
Stay classy, birthers.
'Hawaii governor announces 'exact' place of Obama birth' - By Joe Kovacs -

when (former) Gov. Linda Lingle of Hawaii, a Republican, was interviewed on New

Lingle (Hawaii) responded: "It is a distraction from the bigger issues of
the day, and while I agree with the president on some things, I have some strong
disagreements on others, this issue is not one that's important to the country.
Again, it's been established he was born here. I can understand why people want
to make certain that the constitutional requirement of being a natural-born
American citizen, I can understand why they feel that's important and it is but
the question has been asked and answered, and I think we should all move on
