Oh well. The birther thing was fun, now to only concentrate on his failed policies.

Yup, I'm afraid this will be a self-inflicted wound. With all of his money, and the experts he can hire, Donald Trump is going to have a field day debunking this.
Instead, the White House timed the release so that Trump would be right in the media's glare when the birther bubble burst. Not surprisingly, he looked like an idiot. At a news conference, he blustered about his proud achievement in forcing the release of the birth certificate, then attempted to cast a little doubt on it and finally made up a CNN poll that he claimed showed him neck-and-neck with Obama in the race (CNN promptly reported no such poll exists). No one needed any more proof to understand that Trump is a joke in very poor taste. But he provided it anyway – in long form. Not that Trump will give two hoots. His brand is about reality TV and celebrity, not political, reality. But the Republican party should care. A lot.

Please some explain to me why a document that was scanned to PDF would have layers? A scanned page would remain a rastor image even as a PDF. Even it was scanned via OCR it would not scan it into layers as it is currently in the PDF provided by the WH. So please explain why this would be as such. Below I have converted each "layer" of the PDF in Illustrator to a jpg.
How do I get it to show the image instead of link to image
If someone can explain this to me I would be more than glad to listen.

I dont think that they should have released his Birth Certificate. Why? Because no matter what, the birthers will NEVER be satisfied even if they saw the document with their own two eyes. They will come up with an excuse like it was forged, it was modified, they just created the document now, etc.
