Obama's Long-Form Birth Certificate

It's a trap!

Update: I adjusted the title because as William Jacobson points out, this looks like it may be an original of Obama's short-form birth certificate, not a long-form certificate.

And no, I don't know the difference. Nor do I care.

What I do find amusing is Jacobson's observation that the media pundits and so-called news organizations that claimed Obama couldn't get his long-form birth certificate are full of crap, if this does indeed happen to be the long-form document.

Best/most accurate comment I've seen on the whole ordeal.

Did he not change his name from "Barry Sotero" to "Barrack H. Obama"? So why is his name on the birth cert "Barrack"?

Funny, I didn't know they were so politically correct back then....African....vs....Negroe for race? Still doesn't answer why he has a SSN from Connecticut that belonged to someone who passed away....they don't recycle SSN Numbers.

He's still un-AMERICAN in my opinion and the most unqualified and inexperienced President in history. He must go.

... and no person or animal was hurt or injured in the process of producing this meager document.

So this took three years and a Trump campaign to release?

Why is all of obama's stuff always so questionable..this is a fresh copy with pencil marks?...Plus my long form is a photostat copy and so are others born in Hawaii the same time.. you know..Black with white letters..look how the pages cuts off on one side and on the left side you can see where a part of the form isn't shown or is it even part of this form...Can't he just produce something ..ONE THING that appears normal like the rest of us would do..????

Meh, he is still the first person born with foreign citizenship to become president in 200 years.

That follows convention of the time, Kevin. They drew a distinction in the 60s between American black and African. BHO 1.0 is certainly African rather than black.

In 1961 there was no 'black' or African race(a continent BTW) A black man's race was Negro or Negroid. Would a white South Afrikaner be listed as race: African? Plus married women did not hyphenate their last names. That started in the '70s. I could see some 25 year old in the White House filling in the info fields out of ignorance of the norms of the times, though. The big Obama FU though is the name of the Registrar: UKL Lee (Ukelele!) The kids in the White House are goofing on everyone, figuring noone would vet the document. Certainly not the Obamamedia.
