"There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obamas official birth certificate. State law (Hawaii Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record," DOH Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said. - ABC/KITV Hawaii - 'Obama's Birth Certificate Verified By State' - 10/31/2008

"I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago...' - Hawaii: Obama birth certificate is real - USA Today - 07/28/09 - By Dan Nakaso, The Honolulu Advertiser

Wow. So instead of shouting 'You lie!' too the president, they have to hire someone to make snide comments now?

'Hawaii governor announces 'exact' place of Obama birth' - By Joe Kovacs - 05/05/10 - WorldNetDaily

Line:
'The remark came Sunday night when (former) Gov. Linda Lingle of Hawaii, a Republican, was interviewed on New York's WABC Radio by host Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.
(sic)
Gov. (Linda) 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 now."

Stay classy, birthers.

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.

She was a Democrat / MSM plant to create a news diversion from the Honorable act of Congress reading the Constitution...Liberals really are dispicable.

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.

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.

Evidence please.

Because apparently the Director of the Hawaii State Department of Health isn't enough for you.

@ Stenar

Are 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 §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!!!

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.

'...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?

Paranoid a little?

Honorable act, or costly waste of money, This just grandstanding.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
