Obama’s Hawaiian Birth Certificate CONFIRMED

Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate confirmed
Pacific Business News (Honolulu)

The director of Hawaii’s Department of Health confirmed on Friday what Barack Obama has been saying all along: the presidential candidate was born in Honolulu.

“There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama’s official birth certificate,” said Chiyome Fukino. “State law prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.”

Citing her statutory authority to oversee and maintain Hawaii’s vital records, Fukino said she has “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.

“No state official, including Gov. Linda Lingle, has ever instructed that this vital record be handled in a manner different from any other vital record in the possession of the State of Hawaii,” Fukino added.

Lingle, a Republican, has been campaigning on the Mainland for Obama’s opponent, Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

Obama, a Democratic senator from Illinois, was born Aug. 4, 1961, in Honolulu. He graduated high school at Punahou School in 1979.

Uh, we HAVE a tangible interest. BO is a public figure now. FOIA covers this very well. It's a dodge by yet another BO human shield. Transparent as the Scotch tape on my desk!

I respect your opinion Solie, though I don't agree with it on many levels ~ levels I'm sure you're aware of, thus there's no need for me to reiterate any of them.

Happy Note, I hpe you're having a fantastic Sunday!!

It's okay Angie. NO prob and I don't disrespect *you* just the idea of deception. A BC is the most basic of documents. the FOIA would be invoked in a half a heartbeat if McCain was so guarded. But, the media loves the great panacea so all is good. Enjoy your Sunday too!

Well of course it's real. Do you think there are people out there that actually are crazy enough to think Obama faked his citizenship? LOL I suppose some must actually believe it but it makes you wonder what other great conspiracy stories they believe in. This has certainly been an entertaining election year! There is always something crazy around the next corner. Thanks for posting the story Angie.

Jim, Remember HG Wells 1953 "War of the Worlds"?
I don't think I need to tell you where I'm heading with that comment!

I think the whole birth certificate thing was bizarre. I mean, come on. But thanks for posting this, Angie

Well Sue, I had hoped it would put an end to the belief of a few that it wasn't real, but it hasn't! Oh well!

This is one of those duck times for me. I'm just going to let it go. But hey, you did what you could and gave it go, Angie!

Hey, if they can photoshop Putin's head on Rambo's body, *they* can do anything. I'm SURE he's a citizen. I'm just wondering why everything has to be dragged out like a dentist pulling teeth? Just put it out on the table and let people see it! Oh gees ... you guys know what I mean.

I'm sure the Director of Hawaii's Department of Health had one of his staff members photo shop Obama's Birth Certificate.

You choose to believe he's not a natural born citizen of the United States, and to me, there's absolutely no question about his citizenship!

So, like so much, we'll just agree to disagree!

I thought for sure you'd believe the Director verses the rumors.. but hey, at least I tried.
