Obama's birth certificate [PDF]
Donald Trump: "I am really honored to have played such a big role in hopefully getting rid of this issue."
In the days, weeks and months to come, you're going to be hearing more and more about U.S. President Barack Obama's birth certificate. On 4/20/2011 Matt Drudge posted a "flash" concerning a new book written by Jerome Corsi, the same fellow Drudge says "torpedoed John Kerry's presidential dreams with SWIFT BOAT," that will supposedly set the record straight regarding Obama's eligibilty to BE president.
Jerome Corsi's new book is entitled "Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President" - On its Amazon listing, the book's publisher declares: 'Corsi exposes in detail key issues with Obama's eligibility'... the book is to be released on May 17th. (Corsi has authored two previous books slamming Obama, which in turn were criticized for containing factual errors.)Hover then click to view the complete picture.
Obama's citizenship and birthplace is an important issue for many because U.S. citizenship is a requirement to hold the highest office in the land.
In August of 2008 FactCheck.org published an article concluding that Obama was indeed born on U.S. soil:
"in June, the Obama campaign released a digitally scanned image of his birth certificate to quell speculative charges that he might not be a natural-born citizen. But the image prompted more blog-based skepticism about the document's authenticity. And recently, author Jerome Corsi, whose book attacks Obama, said in a TV interview that the birth certificate the campaign has is "fake."So, could Corsi really have something? Remember, he's been like a dog on a bone chasing this down since 2008. Back then he was hawking a different book and claimed there was proof Obama may have been an Indonesian citizen::: Corsi discusses these school registration documents on pages 50-52 of "The Obama Nation."
We beg to differ. FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate. We conclude that it meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. citizenship."
The existence of the school registration was first revealed on the Internet by "An American Expat in Southeast Asia" on Jan. 24, 2007.But Corsi's 'birtherism' claims didn't stop Barack from winning the election... maybe he thinks America has forgotten 2008. Whatever happens, I'm sure Hillary Clinton is sitting somewhere right now saying "whew" and being glad that she didn't win the Democratic party nomination (or she'd be saddled with the plunging economy, the Arab uprising and all of the other ticks that have attached themselves to the Obama presidency).
Politics are a lot like life: things can turn on a dime, people who posess the ability to change everything show up out of nowhere... basically, anything can happen (and it surely will!)
I'll be posting more about Barack Obama within the next 12 to 15 hours, so STAY TUNED!
