"Prove, prove, prove!"
That's how Holocaust scholar Raul Hilberg once characterized the attitude of Holocaust Deniers. They (the deniers) demand that everything be proven, and don't accept standard assumptions about how the world works. For instance, even if Jews were rounded up in France and sent east on trains, do we really
know that they ended up in Auschwitz? Maybe the train disappeared into a wormhole. Or entered a tunnel to the center of the earth. Etc.
That's pretty much the mindset of those who are challenging
Obama's status as a naturally born U.S. citizen. They don't believe it when the state of Hawaii says his birth certificate is legitimate. Or that there is a confirming notice in the local newspaper. After all, how do we know that any so-called "evidence" isn't just a bunch of recently created forgeries? More proof is needed. And should more proof emerge, then that can be challenged in a similar manner. There is no exit for the doubters.
It's Obama's Whitewater. Anything to distract the public and interfere with his capacity to govern.
They have no case, but they'll flail it to death anyway. It's all they've got — the last gasp of a dying movement.
Why would Obama begin his presidential term under a cloud -- real or imagined -- of accusations about his legitimacy when he could so easily put the issue to rest?

How are the flying monkey wing nuts going to explain away the Obama birth announcement published by the Honolulu Advertiser on August 13, 1961?
Why is Clarence Thomas wasting everyone's time?
It's all part of the Great Conspiracy.
Obamas miscegenating commie parents (at least one of which was likely Satan) planned from the start that their spawn should become president to destroy America and so had to fake all the evidence that could endanger that.
Actually, the claim that the court accepted for deliberation is not about Obama's birth in Hawaii but alleges that because of his father he is of dual British/US citizenship and thus not a full natural born US citizen (=> ineligible).
Too bad Obama wasn't born an Austrian body builder, which would prompt a movement to amend the Constitution to allow him to be eligible for PotUS.
It logically follows from the religious conservatism that infects the Republican party.
These are the same people who believe that dinosaur bones are fakes, placed there during creation for some inscrutable god-purpose.
