Governor wants to reveal Obama’s birth info

December 29, 2010

— Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie wants to find a way to release more information about President Barack Obama’s Hawaii birth and dispel conspiracy theories that he was born elsewhere.

Abercrombie was a friend of Obama’s parents and knew him as a child, and is deeply troubled by the effort to cast doubt on the president’s citizenship.

The newly elected governor will ask the state attorney general’s office about what can be done to put an end to questions about Obama’s birth documentation from Aug. 4, 1961, spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Tuesday.

“He had a friendship with Mr. Obama’s parents, and so there is a personal issue at hand,” Dela Cruz said. “Is it going to be done immediately? No, the first thing on our list is the economy.”

It’s unclear what Abercrombie could do because Hawaii’s privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn’t have a tangible interest.

Hawaii’s health director said last year and in 2008 that she had seen and verified Obama’s original vital records, and birth notices in two Honolulu newspapers were published within days of Obama’s birth at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital in Honolulu.

So-called “birthers” claim Obama is ineligible to be president because they say there’s no proof he was born in the United States, with many of the skeptics questioning whether he was actually born in Kenya, his father’s home country.

gee whiz..a lot of you talk about the CIA.....how many of u have ever worked for the "spooks"? the majority of you couldn't ever qualify for a TS/SCrypto clearance, and quite possibly most of you have never been in military service to defend this country.

arm-chair patriots...you make me want to vomit.

sit at home and wave your flag..the real AMERICANS are over seas...keeping the bad guys away so u can play GI Joe here online. Every member in my family has worn the uniform from ww2 and on...i find it kind of odd that no one who has kids in the service of our country has not come on here and wrote the same crap most of do..esp shewmon..where did u serve..besides your mums apron. Every member in my family has served our country in uniform. I was 20 when i went to Nam after flight school..what were u doing in 1971?

obtw, i still serve our country, i have for almost 30 years...bite me...!

This President said he was running on transparency in government because he saw the need for it from the prior administration record of secrecy and obstruction. But it didn't sit well with most who saw him spend over a million on lawyers - and still does, to hide in secrecy his past, including his college records, CIA connections, his having various SS numbers, traveling to Pakistan when no other citizens were allowed, and why his past included defending his Kenyan origin, including his wife (and grandmom too) publicly declaring Kenya as his home country in videos. He declared to an opponent for a political seat that he was not born an American citizen. He said it didn't matter because he wasn't running for President, just Senator in IL. There are more indications of his ineligibility, his name sake father may have been a UK citizen, Barack was also named Barry Soetoro and an Indonesian citizen of Islamic faith when his mom married his stepdad and on and on.

It seems he wanted the blacks in IL to think he was Kenyan, but the whites to think he was American, at different times to get the votes required and the funds required to run for public offices.

Regardless his policies and buddies are all straight from Wall Street and the Fed. They have benefited the most, as well as other BP, Soros, Chinese, Halliburton, big brother industrial military complex cronies who are building up a police state around us, keeping Gitmo open, Patriot Act in place, destroying the value of our dollar, our unemployment crushing us, and the illegal alien and homosexual extremist groups he adoringly promotes and parties with. His insurance corporate buddies that lobbied for the Clintonesque health care package won his help, no matter what the consequences.

Obama Ran as "Kenyan-born canidate" aginst Jack Ryan in 2004, and won the Senate seat. This evidence is being scrubbed from the internet everywhere. Obama ran for senate as Kenyan born. Didn't the Supreme court order the birth cert., and Obama failed to make it by the due date?

The governor knew him as a child but did not know him at birth. Obama will release the information as soon as the fake documents are prepared. Obamination continues.

I think this is a cleverly timed political move on the governor's part...someone above asked why you would want to stoke an issue that had all but died down? It made a large portion of Republicans (both elected and voters) look like complete clowns during the 2008 cycle, driving many rational moderates to distance themselves as far from that set as possible.

You "conservative" sheeple are always bleating about how rough Chicago politics are. So how can you explain Obama going through multiple elections without this being an issue? You can't.

Now I'll sit back and watch your collective heads implode while you sit on the couch waiting for FoxLies to give you the answer.

Disgusting. And weak. A real conservative has principles, not propaganda.

Based on the true believers that I personally know of about this claim, and some are relatives, it's obvious racism is at heart of it. Nothing anyone can show or any factual evidence coming forth will change their mind. After all, some still believe LBJ was involved with Kennedy assassination, that man never landed on moon, that Area 51 has alien bodies, that man is only 6000 years old and not to mention all their other ignorant beliefs.

Doesn't the Federal Election Commission verify the eligibility of all presidential candidates? During the administration of the (then-)current president? In 2008, that was George W. Bush.

The same crowd (in general) who sniffed and shuffled along with the WTC/Bush conspiracy calling out birthers for merely questioning not really IF he is legal, but why he won't produce past documentation of his life is beyond the pale. At least this is my question...why so much secrecy and also an utter lack of vetting this radical fraud who was exalted by the crooked media to soothe their aching liberal heads----the crooked media who expressly did not want to know, but scrambled up to Juneau and Wasilla for some dirt.

Disgusting. Disgusted.

Just another distraction from the real crime going on right in front of our faces. Just another meaningless, nasty piece of gristle for the sheeple to chew on.

It’s unclear what Abercrombie could do because Hawaii’s privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn’t have a tangible interest.

---these documents and the school transcripts could've been released years ago if Mr. Louie Obama had chosen to do so.

and siting the newspaper announcements in this article as proof is just silly. they are no verification as they originate from the work of filing documents. they are secondary and thus meaningless.

so why doesn't Mr. Obama release everything?

[note for the really crazy left posters, just to help you and save a lot of blowhardedness: nowhere in this post or in any other of mine do I indicate that I am a "birther" or that I believe that Mr. Louie Obama was actually born in Kenya. I have expressed a healthy skepticism given some unavoidable facts.]

If it was released those who wish to support the conspiracy would simply say that it is forged.

As president, Barack Obama shouldn't expect any greater or increased right to privacy, above and beyond any other average American citizen.

That being said, I'm not sure he should get anything less than the average American citizen, either.

If any records are released without Obama's permission, what line will we cross? Will that mean, then, that anyone's personal, private information can be released by another party if there's enough internet clamoring for it?

Suppose we were talking about a Republican or independent candidate/elected official? Would the "birthers" still be "birthers?"

I wonder why they are even bothering to spend time with this? The conspiracy crowd loves to ignore facts, it is their very being to do so. The grassy knoll, the faked moon landing, the explosives hidden in the twin towers, Obama's birth information, all this feeds the delierious and ignorant fools who continue to regurgitate this garbage, and it makes them happy to do so. So why play into their hands with more factual information? They will simply reject it and continue on in their little cloudless world. Ignore them, it will save public money trying to bell the cat. Everybody get a life and move on.

"Is it going to be done immediately? No, the first thing on our list is the economy.”

If it was going to be done, how long could it possibly take? It's not like the governor or his staff are "working on" the economy in denim coveralls three shifts a day like it's some big piece of machinery in the basement of the capitol. All it takes is a phone call.

But secondly, if you're not going to do it now, and maybe can't do it anyway, why bother to bring it up? Good grief, while you're at it, why don't you publicly speculate that the original might have gotten lost since 2008? If you're going to unnecessarily revive a conspiracy, you might as well do it in style.

No matter what is released, the racists and birthers will never accept anything as factual.

What is it they say, "it's not the crime, but the cover-up"......just come clean, BO. What are you trying to hide? My feelings are his dilemma is like being pulled over by a cop--one question and answer leads to another and another and another until....???

What are you hiding BO?

Way to re-energize an issue that had mostly died down, governor dude.

Aside from this lingering issue that still apparently bothers Governor Abercrombie, why won't Obama release his undergraduate and law school transcripts? What's he trying to hide?
