WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A vocal group of conspiracy theorists known as "birthers" are riling the White House with their persistent claim that Barack Obama is not an American citizen and therefore ineligible to be president. The claim that the United States' first African-American president was born in Kenya, not Hawaii, first emerged during his presidential campaign, but it has garnered more media attention in the summer "silly season," a traditionally slow news period when many Americans are on vacation. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs looked exasperated at his briefing on Monday when a reporter asked him, "Is there anything you can say that will make the birthers go away?" "If I had some DNA, it wouldn't assuage those that don't believe he was born here," Gibbs replied. "But I have news for them and for all of us: The president was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, the 50th state of the greatest country on the face of the earth. He's a citizen.

Alright... know what? How hard would it be for the government to create a false document?
Anyone? Anyone at all?
So let's say Obama DOES produce a legal birth certificate, short and long... and hell, offers a piece of his umbilical cord for DNA sampling... how many of you would accept that?
If he showed his long form BC and it was verified by the doctor who delivered him and the hospital had all the records, Then yes, yes, I would accept that.
Really... would any of you accept the fact the the document was an actual birth certificate, issued by the state... knowing that it could be forged or faked by the government?
You guys just won't be happy with any answer.
First, I you are willing to let this drop without clarification I think you should change your avatar, you don't deserve to use it.
Second, The true patriot's will never let this die, until he comes clean with this information requested. So don't ask us to let it die, I just get more determined each day that passes. To me the lack of response from them reinforces my feelings on the matter. WHERE IS THE G'DAM CERTIFICATE!
(no, I do not support Obama... but man, give it a break already)
Yes you do!
[edit: I will be copying and pasting this on other birther threads, because let's face it... there's more serious stuff in the world that needs attention than this rehashed bit over and over again]
Let the doubts begin!
