Meanwhile, questions remain as to whether the birth certificate produced by the Obama campaign as proof he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1961 is a forged document persist. Check out this birth certificate issued by the State of Hawaii in 1963. Compare it to Obama's certificate of birth, which can be found here. A Newsmax story notes several major differences. "In addition to naming the hospital and more details about the baby, the 1963 vault copy also includes the “usual residence of the mother,” and the “usual occupation” of the father," the story reads. "None of this information appears on the 2007 Live Birth certificate produced by the Obama campaign." America's Right Blogger Jeff Schreiber observes that Obama mentions in his book that he once held the original birth certificate. Schreiber writes:
Ironically, Obama mentions his birth certificate in passing on Page 26 of his 1995 memoir, “Dreams of My Father.” “I discovered this article, folded away among my birth certificate and old vaccination forms, when I was in high school,” he wrote.
The birth certificate produced by Obama is not the original long version certificate which would have been issued to his mother at the time of his birth, and which is presumably the birth certificate Obama references in his book. The birth certificate posted by the Obama campaign purports to have been received from the State of Hawaii in June, 2007. Attorney Philip J. Berg claims to have a recorded phone conversation with Obama's paternal grandmother from Kenya, who claims she was present for Obama's birth, which she says occurred in Kenya.
UPDATE: Berg has issued a press release stating his intention to appeal the district court judge's decision to the U.S. Supreme Court. Berg wonders in his press release what American has standing to enforce the eligibility requirements for president of the United States:
Berg said, “I am totally disappointed by Judge Surrick’s decision and, for all citizens of the United States, I am immediately appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court.
This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution. If I don’t have standing, if you don’t have standing, if your neighbor doesn’t have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States - the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world - then who does?
So, anyone can just claim to be eligible for congress or the presidency without having their legal status, age or citizenship questioned.
According to Judge Surrick, we the people have no right to police the eligibility requirements under the U.S. Constitution.
What happened to ‘…Government of the people, by the people, for the people,…’ Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address 1863.
We must legally prevent Obama, the unqualified candidate, from taking the Office of the Presidency of the United States,” Berg said.
