Many have been blogging about the Obamessiah's place of birth and his birth certificate. Unfortunately many have commented but don't have any knowledge of the law or how birth certificates are created and used.
First, the birth certificate presented by the Obama campaign is a genuine document. However, it is not a birth certificate, despite the State of Hawaii claiming it is. It is, in fact, an abstract of certificate of live birth. An abstract is, according to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, 1: a summary of points (as of a writing) usually presented in skeletal form ; also : something that summarizes or concentrates the essentials of a larger thing or several things". In the case of abstracts of live births, it is a summary of the information on a birth certificate. For the Obamessiah it summarises the information on the birth certificate.
However, it does not give all the information which would be on a complete birth certificate. The problem is that Hawaii issues birth certificates for persons born outside of Hawaii to parents who lived one year previous to the birth in Hawaii. http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/hrscurrent/vol06_ch0321-0344/HRS0338/HRS_0338-0017_0008.HTM
And so we cut to the chase. In my profession I routinely confront people with facts that put themselves in peril. Routinely those persons can present information to me to clear themselves of that peril. Usually those persons want to present that evidence. However, many routinely claim there is such exculpatory evidence, but they refuse to present that evidence. And so we come to the Obamessiah, who can prove that this is all barking up the wrong tree, but he still refuses to present the proof that will end it all.
Why? Why is he refusing to end this story? Probably for the same reason he has yet to release the records showing the contact between Advisors A and B of his staff and Governor Blogavich. Because any release will show he is both a crook and a liar.
