So why has the guy from Kenya had all his personal records sealed, and is reputed to have spent well over a million dollars in legal fees preventing anyone from seeing any of the evidence ?
I cant believe you are in favor of a president keeping records sealed from his past, whether bad or not.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
And we know he's from hawaii how?
For Immediate Release: October 31, 2008
STATEMENT BY DR. CHIYOME FUKINO
“There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama’s official birth certificate. State law (Hawai‘i Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.
“Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai‘i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai‘i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.
“No state official, including Governor Linda Lingle, has ever instructed that this vital record be handled in a manner different from any other vital record in the possession of the State of Hawai‘i.”
His own grandma said he was born in kenya.
Here's the conversation:
MCRAE: Could I ask her about his actual birthplace? I would like to see his birthplace when I come to Kenya in December. Was she present when he was born in Kenya?
OGOMBE: Yes. She says, yes, she was, she was present when Obama was born.
MCRAE: When I come in December. I would like to come by the place, the hospital, where he was born. Could you tell me where he was born? Was he born in Mombasa?
OGOMBE: No, Obama was not born in Mombasa. He was born in America.
MCRAE: Whereabouts was he born? I thought he was born in Kenya.
OGOMBE: No, he was born in America, not in Mombasa.
MCRAE: Do you know where he was born? I thought he was born in Kenya. I was going to go by and see where he was born.
OGOMBE: Hawaii. Hawaii. Sir, she says he was born in Hawaii. In the state of Hawaii, where his father was also learning, there. The state of Hawaii.
His own wife referred to Kenya as his home country.

You would be incorrect. Lakin also has no legal standing to view Obama's personal documents.
Isnt the President suppose to lay his life open for America? There is no "personal" documents for the President. He is supposed to be the embodiment of our country, and he gives up the freedom of a "personal life" for that duty.
I still believe the President gives up his private life when acting as Commander and Chief, and he should not be allowed to hide ANYTHING from Americas citizens. But thats just me I guess.

A photo of the original with the EXIF data to prove it's not photoshopped is obviously not enough.
There are soldiers under his command, not just crazy right-wing "birther" civilians, who want to see the actual document...

Requirements to hold office
Section One of Article II of the U.S. Constitution establishes the requirements one must meet in order to become President. The president must be a natural-born citizen of the United States (or a citizen of the United States at the time the U.S. Constitution was adopted), be at least 35 years of age, and have been a resident of the United States for 14 years.
here is the requirement you requested.
