White House Releases

Obama Birth Certificate

4/27/2011 6:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump asked for it ... and now Donald Trump got it -- because the White House just released President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate ... proving he was, in fact, born in Hawaii.

The document shows Obama's mother was 18 at the time she gave birth ... and his father was 25.

Obama directed his office to release the certificate because the Commander In Chief didn't believe the distraction was good for the country.

Obama held a news conference about the document -- and explained, "We’re not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers."

Of course, the conspiracy theorists will probably ask the obvious questions ... what took so long???? Is this document legit ... or a fake???

Hey Tea Bigots I mean Tea Party.
Your President is a black man,,,Get over it.
Why did it not matter that your George Bush stole an election and lied to go to war? Oh! I forgot he is not black.
Deep down in your heart you know that race is the real issue.
Can't change history.

What's the BIG DEAL??? Why couldn't he have done this a long time ago so it could have all been put to rest?? Let's verify that it's legit & get on with it. Obama is a 'carnival barker' NOT Trump. Why does Obama think this is all so funny. Anyone else would have provided it & got on with it. Now the transcripts from his school & he can be done with it. He's got better things to do?? What is that Mr. President....vacationing, playing golf, bowing to foreign dignitaries, apologizing for America, subsidizing other countries, not securing our borders, suing states, demonizing the rich, etc.? Oh yes, Obama is the WORST president we have had by far!!!!

For G-d's sake, what an A$$ Trump is. If he thinks he can win an election with his sorry background, he's sorely mistaken. He's a shady, arrogant businessman with a child out of wedlock and a few failed marriages. What makes him think he can be a successful president? He's one of the cogs of Korporate Amerika. He won't be for the working middle class. He's for himself and his ilk. I wouldn't vote for him if he were the only choice on the ballot. As for birthers, their "conspiracy theory" is so absurd, I won't even go into that waste of valuable time and man hours. Americans need to wake up and get to work solving real issues, not wasting time with silly Trump, idiotic accusations by birthers and enemy-of-people Tea Baggers with their insane social agenda.

Did Hawaii use raised seals to authenticate the certificates like most states?

IF THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE WAS SO READILY AVAILABLE TO BE RELEASED, WHY WASN'T IT RELEASED WHEN THIS QUESTION CAME UP IN THE BEGINNING? PEOPLE HAVE BEEN QUESTIONING THIS FOR YEARS.

a Certificate of Live Birth is NOT the same as a Birth Certificate which is filled out at the hospital at the time YOU are born. Try flying with a Cert. of Live Birth - what a PITA cuz IT AIN'T THE SAME THING.

And why has Obama spent nearly $3 MILLION on lawyers over this issue since before he was elected if there isn't anything to hide? That tells more than the piece of rediculous paper he's once again trying to pass off. He was born in Kenya just like his family has said. Plain and simple. He won't release his school records either - he was registered as a Muslim in Indonesia, he was a crappy student with poor grades in college and somehow managed to get into two of the most prestigious schools in this country. How did that happen?

IT'S COUNTERFEIT. GOVERNMENT CAN PRINT ANYTHING. THIS ONE IS LACKING THE STATE SEAL.

WHY ELSE HAS OBAMA SPENT MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FIGHTING DISCLOSING HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE???

I think this is a fake........Look closely at the certificate and how it is filled in. A question on his mother's residence is answered "nope" ??? And look at the dates by the signatures...someone tried to make them look like they were different but didn't try hard enough they are too much alike to be signed by two different people.
I applaud Donald Trump for bringing this out again. And I can't wait for Obama's term to be over! He never belonged in office in the first place!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Look closer. It asks what her OCCUPATION is.....and the answer is NONE....not nope.

It is about time, this should have been laid to rest a long time ago. I believed all along that he had to be a citizen to become President but why did the President have to be force to come forward with the original do***ent, why couldn't he just have been honest and laid this mess to rest long ago. This has nothing to do with race, it has to do with the political games being played on both sides. Sorry it had to be Trump to finally force the issue to get the truth settled, but Obama should just come clean on all the questions that are still out there. We really do not have a full understanding of who this President is, and that is where the problems lies.

Fake or real, there is seal by a notary on this paper. Also, since when did 'African' constitute a RACE? Still indicates that the father is Kenyan. He is a half breed, aka malato, not a child of TWO AMERICAN CITIZENS!!
