In June, the Obama campaign released a digitally scanned image of his birth certificate to quell speculative charges that he might not be a natural-born citizen. But the image prompted more blog-based skepticism about the document's authenticity. And recently, author Jerome Corsi, whose book attacks Obama, said in a TV interview that the birth certificate the campaign has is "fake."
We beg to differ. FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate. We conclude that it meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. citizenship. Claims that the document lacks a raised seal or a signature are false. We have posted high-resolution photographs of the document as "supporting documents" to this article. Our conclusion: Obama was born in the U.S.A. just as he has always said.
Update, Nov. 1: The director of Hawaii’s Department of Health confirmed Oct. 31 that Obama was born in Honolulu.

What will the free world think of us if we disqualify our president based on these allegations AFTER the election?
Wow, this is absolutely ludicrous. So, in your opinion, we should ignore the rules set forth in the Constitution by the founders of our country so that the "free world" doesn't "think" negatively "of us". Is that what you're saying?
This is scary. It's only a matter of time before we lose our status as a sovereign nation with people like you running around.

I read through threads regarding these issues, and frankly it is time for all to move on. The election is over. We must unite NOW.
I said the following in another discussion which I read through today...
Stop it already.
Obama is our president, elected by the majority of Americans. I did not vote for him, however the election is over, he is MY president now, it is time for everyone of us to rally behind him, to support his administration to STOP these insane games aimed at disqualifying him from office.
The American people have spoken in overwhelming numbers.
The time to have done something regarding his eligibility and citizenship passed long before November. Can any of you imagine what would happen now if for some reason Obama is prevented from taking office?
Everyone say it with me...
I am an American, Barack Obama is my President, I will support him.
After 8 years of a Bush administration and all that resulted from that, the new President is going to need ALL of the support he can get. No one should envy him, look at what he is going to be walking into on day 1.
Best of luck President Obama.

Lets talk hypothetically. An American gets transferred oversease. He takes his wife along. She delivers a baby overseas. Does it mean that the baby is not American citizen or if the baby grows up, that person cannot be the president of USA. Thousands of American work oversease, I never heard that their kids cannot be American. So why people are dwelling on Mr. Obama's naturalization. Is the government dumb that they cannot address the issue. After all presidency is a very sensitive job. I ask ATS members to stop it once for all and respect the wishes of all those who voted for him.

This all kind of moot isn't it? His mother is/was a US citizen..he could have been born on the moon and it makes no difference.
He's a naturalized citizen regardless of place of birth. The 14th amendment pre-empts the 'natural born citizen' clause..might try giving that one a read.
Time to quit splitting hairs here and UNITE for fuks sake. We have a new President and it is high time we unite behind him.

The US Supreme Court will run a closed door hearing on the Obama Birth Certificate Question on December 5th, scheduled by Justice Thomas.
Justice Souter has already notified the DNC and Obama to produce a "Vault Copy" of the Birth Certificate, not a Certificate of Live Birth because they are not the same, by December 1st, 2008.
