Obama releases detailed U.S. birth certificate President slams 'silliness' of birther issue; Trump claims credit for release

Can we move on to other issues? Or do you think people will still believe that he wasn't born in the US? I can imagine people saying it was forged, or that the POTUS could just have one made up. What do you think?

Anyone can look at the file they released, and see that it has been heavily doctored. You can look at the YouTube video that shows all the problems with it. A friend of mine, who is a professional with photoshop/graphic arts, downloaded the file and found everything in the video to be true.

What the hell is going on with this White House? It's hard to believe that they would release a doctored birth certificate and not know that it would be discovered. Are they that inept? Or did they decide that they would just screw with the American public? If you are okay with the WH releasing doctored documents as genuine, then you better take a long look in the mirror and figure out where your integrity went.

I think Obama owes everyone an explanation on this act of deception. For all I know, there may be a good one, but I want to hear it.

For the record, I believe he was born in this country, and this was a dead issue, that they just breathed some credibility into. Say he was born in Kenya. Why bother? Do you think the democrats will impeach him? Fat chance. And, if the impossible occurs, we end up with Biden as POTUS. Oh, great!

Nope...our YouTube videographer is either stupid or disingenuous. He missed a bunch of important stuff...if he wants to call a document that's been photocopied (or scanned), then printed onto modern safety paper (along with the "this is a true copy from 2011 affidavit at the bottom; our happy cameraman doesn't mention that pesky little fact), and then printed and scanned pdf format, a "manufactured document", fine. But it doesn't mean anything beyond the fact that a document from an old book was photocopied or scanned, printed or overlaid on modern safety paper and then distributed in a common format. (I do this electronically in my mapping job: take old scanned documents and place them on new backgrounds....but it doesn't change the content of the historical plats/maps.) An image of the original page is present, the "true copy of" affidavit is in place, and it's all printed on modern paper. The birthers wouldn't be satisfied even if the president had the original, ripped from its book. The cameraman should stick to the technology he understands...last night I saw an old Royal typewriter sell at auction for $50. He could probably handle that. Maybe.

That's been debunked already.

Yes, it's hard to believe that this White House would release a doctored birth certificate which is why is simply astounding the efforts that birthers are putting forth to prove such an unbelievable thing.

Yes, you hit the nail on the head and it's the reason why birthers simply can't be taken seriously. There's no rhyme or reason to what they believe.

Don't you get it? They release a document like this, and don't say a word. They could say something to the effect that they had to clean it up, but it's factual. But nope, not them. They are either just arrogant or idiots.

Are you really that desperate to see

Have you seen the video? Because from your post, it sounds like you don't even believe that the file that they released shows that the original was worked on (doctored, tampered, changed, manipulated) or whatever term you wish to use. That's just a given. Stop reading now if that's what you think.

Regarding the "birther" garbage. I've stated before, prior to this thread, that I think he was born in the United Sates. End of story.

Even if he was not born in the United States, you'd have to be an idiot to pursue it. What would be the goal, to have him impeached? Do you really think that the democrats would impeach him? And then you get Joe Biden as President, Yahooo! What a success that would be!

Now that the hand holding is over, let me state the point that's obviously been lost.

They release the file that's been worked on. They say nothing about it being worked on. The question is, are they so inept or clueless that they didn't know what they were releasing? Or are they just so arrogant that they release this file and don't say a thing about it? Did they decide to screw with us? What are they trying to accomplish by releasing that file?
