Obama's Kenyan birth certificate found!
Kudos to Orly Taitz for finding this document. This will keep the issue alive for months, to the advantage of Republicans.
AND IT'S NOT OVER: World Net Daily, which published the above story, ends with this:
WND has reported that among the documentation not yet available for Obama includes his kindergarten records, his Punahou school records, his Occidental College records, his Columbia University records, his Columbia thesis, his Harvard Law School records, his Harvard Law Review articles, his scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, his passport, his medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.
Obama's kindergarten records reveal? Probably a lot of damning info, which explains why Obama is desperately trying to keep them from the public eye.
If the document is not a hoax, then I'd like to understand why the document is dated in 1964, not the year of his birth, 1961. However, the document states the birth was entered into the register 5 days after Obama was born (August 9, 5 days after August 4).
The father went back to Kenya in 1965. Could this have been done in 1965 and backdated?
The strange thing to me is why it would be so difficult--or is it?--to get a copy of a Kenyan birth certificate from the year in which Obama was born.
All said, I sense you feel as I do that this is the first information one can see is potentially legitimate in raising questions about Obama's birth. On the other hand, what do we make of this:
Hmmm...looks like Ms. Nelson, the woman in the Buffalo News article cited above, said she did not know if Dr. West was the doctor who delivered Stanley Ann Dunham's baby, Barack Obama. He apparently retired in 1956, 5 years before Barack Obama was born....
Still, it's World News Daily (WND) here...
"I sense you feel as I do that this is the first information one can see is potentially legitimate in raising questions about Obama's birth."
The only thing this new birf cert will do is make people laugh their asses off. Sane people, anyway.
This sucker's got all kinds of problems. The funniest, to me at least, is the eyebrow-raising certificate number "47 O 44." 47-year old Obama, the 44th president. Coincidence?
A thorough takedown is here.
Thanks, Screamin' Demon.
Here is Media Matters on the hoax:
The question I continue to have, though, is this:
Can one get records from hospitals in the area where Obama's family lived and simply prove the negative, that is there is NO birth certificate there from 1961 that shows Barack Hussein Obama or his parents' names? That would end the nonsense once and for all except in the mind of birthers.
