Hawaii to Create Obama Birth Document

Some Hawaiian legislators have introduced a bill that will allow the state to create a document that says Obama was born in Hawaii, but does not officially certify his parentage, birthplace, or attending physician, etc.  The document will carry the official seal of the state of Hawaii.


Recently, the governor of Hawaii, Neil Abercrombie, sought to bring the controversy over Obama’s birth certificate to a halt by vowing to release the document using his powers as governor. However, no official long-form birth certificate for Obama could be found in the Department of Health vital records or in either the Kapi’olani Medical Center or Queens Medical Center in Honolulu and the governor’s office has gone quiet on the issue.

Undaunted, the legislators who are sponsoring the bill plan to simply declare Obama was born in Hawaii and they somehow believe that will end the controversy. Such arrogance is not likely to stop the questions about his birth. Obama has steadfastly refused to have his official birth certificate released (if it exists) and has spent an estimated $2 million to keep his records secret from the public.

The U.S. Constitution requires that a President be a “natural born” citizen. Obama’s own autobiography says his father was a British subject from Kenya, and his own grandmother has claimed that she attended Obama’s birth — in Kenya. Either of these would seemingly make him ineligible to be President. Making up an official document, even with a state seal, will not solve the situation. It will eventually be resolved in the courts, if necessary, but so far no court has agreed to hear a case challenging Obama’s eligibility. To do so would, it is assumed, force him to release his birth certificate.
