My personal feelings on the whole birthplace issue is more of curiosity then anything. Why not put the whole thing to bed by responding to the question? Refusing the issue is an odd stance. Not sure who gave that advice.
I also feel that many "birthers" are just twisting the old "nothing to worry about if you have nothing to hide" tactic back towards an official, and out of convenience it happens to fall on Obama.
Then again, given Obama's background and knowledge of multiple languages from childhood, I find it a little odd that he has no real discernible accent. Even when in seemingly casual speaking tones when accents naturally slip out.

Advice to partisan hacks... careful with the vitriol! When the truth comes out, and it most certainly will, will you be offering any apologies for the immature ad hominem attacks that you use to obfuscate and distort the issue? Will you then drop your partisan pretenses and go back to using your God-given senses to question authority?
He did respond to it !

If the President, ANY President, took the time to respond to every rumor, inneundo etc. that is out there, it would be a full time job, and an incredible waste of his time. Just because a citizen has a question, he's supposed to drop everything an answer it? How silly.
He was elected by the Electoral College, the popular vote. Accepted by the Congress and sworn in. Gee, even if you guys can't understand it, IT'S OVER! He is President! The whole issue is settled!
If you can't understant that, or refuse to accept it, too freakin bad.
The President sets the Presidential agenda, not internet crackpots!
Hoax or not, using but a single left wing blog as a source is not completely proof of a hoax.

A certificate of live birth is NOT a birth certificate
Birth certificates (Certificates of Live Birth and Certifications of Live Birth) and Certificates of Hawaiian Birth are the primary documents used to determine native Hawaiian qualification.
The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands accepts both Certificates of Live Birth (original birth certificate) and Certifications of Live Birth because they are official government records documenting an individual’s birth. The Certificate of Live Birth generally has more information which is useful for genealogical purposes as compared to the Certification of Live Birth which is a computer-generated printout that provides specific details of a person’s birth. Although original birth certificates (Certificates of Live Birth) are preferred for their greater detail, the State Department of Health (DOH) no longer issues Certificates of Live Birth. When a request is made for a copy of a birth certificate, the DOH issues a Certification of Live Birth

I can't demand Obama's birth certificate any more than I can walk up to someone on the street and demand theirs.
