So apparently Obama was born in the United States...

Who knew?
"President Obama released his original birth certificate Wednesday, saying the controversy surrounding the issue had become a "sideshow."

Obama's birth certificate

“We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do," said Obama.

The surprise release follows recent and sustained remarks by businessman Donald Trump, among others, that raised doubts as to whether the president was born in the United States.

“Over the last two and half years, I have watched with amusement. I have been puzzled with the degree with which this thing just kept going,” Obama told reporters Wednesday.
Unfortunately this "silliness" could have been over with two years ago, but Obama's camp refused to give in for some reason.

Unless it took them two years so forge the documents and create the back story! (Dun dun dun...)

Anyway, let's take a look at this "birth certificate":
I don't know... looks like some good Photoshopping here.
- Obama's mom not signing her full name (only a forger would have tried to sign her nickname first!)
- The supposed "doctor" attendant. Looks like he was unsure about checking off that box...
- And who is this notary/state registrar? Alvin T. Onaka? O-N-A-K-A is only a few letters away from O-B-A-M-A!
I smell a conspiracy!

[Side note: I particularly like sections 3 & 4 (two sections dedicated to multiples?) and section 7g (apparently denoting farm or plantation births was very important to 60s Hawaii). Also- Obama's a "junior"? Why is this not a nickname?]

Moving on...
Of course, "The Donald" had something to say about it:
"Responding to the development, Trump said, "I have accomplished something nobody else has accomplished."

"I want to look at it, but I hope it’s true," he told reporters in New Hampshire. "He should have done it a long time ago. I am really honored to have played such a big role in hopefully getting rid of this issue."

But as The Onion reports, he's got some explaining to do as well:

Let's hope this is the last we hear of the "birthers".
(Something tells me it won't be).
