When I was younger I worked in the Passport Office in NYC and my job required me to examine thousands of birth certificates, baptismal certificates
(which were then accepted) and other documents of citizenship. Obama's b/c is the genuine article, sufficient to get him a passport. Even that short
form he made public in 2008 would have accomplished that.
Crazy Joe and others have gotten their panties in a twist because Photoshop gives strange readings for the internet image of the b/c. In fact, the
Photoshop readings are so strange that I'd bet that nobody in Crazy Joe's posse can cook up a document from scratch that would give the same readings!
What they overlook is that Obama's b/c (both the long and short) are printed on security paper deliberately designed to prevent any sort of
falsification - counterfeiting, photocopying, alterations, forgery, etc. The design on these paper used in the Hawaiian Health Dept is called green
basket weave. The anti-falsification design clearly works - the copies that Crazy Joe downloads from the internet keep giving him anomalous readings.
He might as well claim that a US $20 bill is fake because its internet image doesn't give the right readings thanks to the anti-counterfeiting design
used by the US Treasury.
Joe doesn't even realize when he's proving the opposite of his own purpose. He makes a fuss about the serial number on Obama's b/c compared to other
birth certificates for people born the day after Obama. There's no rule, in the Hawaiian Health Dept or anywhere else, that the birth certificates
have to be arranged in strict chronological order of birth before being numbered - what these serial numbers do prove is that Obama's birth
certificate was in the same fistful of papers as those other certificates, that Obama was born that week, etc. He found the woman who signed the b/c,
now age 95(!), and, yes, it's her signature. It turns out that she wasn't actually shown the b/c or the markings on it; she was questioned via the
telephone and Zullo pretended to be a reporter; in any case she insisted there was no hankypanky about the Obama b/c. The long form even named the
doctor, who was working at the appropriate hospital back then, and his children recognized his signature.
Some of the other birfers are also tripping over their own feet. Orly Taitz presently has a lawsuit in California in which she claims that various
letters of the alphabet typed on the Obama b/c (the long form) must have come from different typewriters - in fact, a least a dozen different
typewriters! Her "evidence" would even suggest that a single word on the b/c had every letter in it typed on different machines! Nobody would, or
could, falsify a document that way; she is describing something impossible. In short, the people who are using various microscopic details as
evidence of forgery, could not themselves forge a document that would have the same microscopic details!
So far, every Hawaiian official who has dealt with Obama's b/c says it's genuine. Republicans as well as Democrats.
