Answer: Only birther "experts"---who have not proved that they are really experts, and who certainly have not proved that they are fair and impartial---say that there is anything wrong with the image of Obama's birth certificate.
The birther "experts" include Paul Irey, who has repeatedly claimed that Obama did not attend Columbia College, despite the fact that Columbia University has stated that Obama did attend (and that he graduated). And they include Doug Vogt, who claims to have found the original altar of Abraham. It is such "experts" as these that the birthers rely on for their case.
There are many real experts who say that there is nothing wrong with Obama's birth certificate, including John Woodman, who happens to be a member of the Tea Party and who dislikes Obama and Obama's policies, but shows that the birther "experts" are wrong. They also include Ivan Zatkovich, who was hired by WND to examine the image of Obama's birth certificate, and when he submitted his report that there was nothing wrong with Obama's birth certificate, WND simply did not publish it.
As for Sheriff Joe and his posse:
It is clear that rational conservatives do not believe the "birth certificate was forged" claims. Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck and the National Review certainly do not.
And the conservative secretary of state of Arizona asked Hawaii to confirm that Obama was born there and to confirm specified facts on Obama's birth certificate. Hawaii did, stating that it compared the image of Obama's birth certificate with the file copy (which is an additional confirmation that there was a file copy BTW) and that Obama was born there and that the facts match. The secretary of state of Arizona accepted this confirmation and ruled that Obama will be on the ballot in Arizona in November. This indicates that he does not believe the claims that the birth certificate is forged (including those of Sheriff Joe) and that he does believe the officials in Hawaii.
How do we know that there is an Obama birth certificate in the files in Hawaii and that it says on it that Obama was born in Hawaii?
The first way is based on the short form birth certificate. That was created by a clerk copying the information off of the original document in the files. If there were no document, there could be no short form birth certificate. Hawaii has confirmed that it sent a short form birth certificate (COLB) to Obama.
The second reason is that Hawaii said that there is, several times, under both Republican and Democrat governors.
The third reason is that the current director of health of Hawaii stated in a letter that she had seen the long form birth certificate being created by photocopying onto security paper the original document that was in the files.
The fourth reason is that the existence of Obama's birth certificate in 1961 is proven by the birth notices sent to the newspapers of Hawaii in 1961 by the DOH of Hawaii. Only the DOH could send those notices to the Health Bureau Statistics section of the papers, and the DOH sent only sent those notices for children whom it had issued birth certificates for.
Would you like me to post the citations of the confirmations by the officials in Hawaii?
To date no document expert has examined Oblama's original BC from Hawaii and claimed it to be authentic, not FB* experts, No one. The hospital listed on his So called BC refuses to confirm their hospital as his place of birth, and his people have refused to explain why every BC from that hospital at that same time has an official state seal and appropriate signatures at the bottom, all missing from the one posted by Oblama on his website.

Point two ELLEN 1

There is no explanation why this man was named Barry Soetoro, why he was an Indonesian citizen then in the US living in Hawaii under his current name using a Connecticut SS#, there is no reports of any of these being legally changed.

At the least his last country of official citizenship was Indonesia, and there absolutely no legal reason for this man to have a Connecticut SS#.

When will you obot zealots stop perpetuating this Hawaian born myth, and get your heads out the hole you've been living in and look at the facts and lack of documentation from this man. He has fooled you! You are the ones who should be upset!

But then again you know this, that's why all the lefty loons have waisted four years of their lives trying to prove something they say is already proven! They just can't stand the fact that there are folks who see through the B$!

Wall Street donors opening their checkbooks for Mitt Romney
The financial industry's support for the Republican nominee marks a sharp reversal from four years ago, when the industry supported Barack Obama over John McCain.

Your take?
Will Wall Street money make a difference on Election Day?

By Andrew Tangel and Walter Hamilton, Los Angeles Times

November 3, 2012, 5:00 a.m.

NEW YORK — Looking back, the end of Wall Street's love affair with President Obama came at a meeting in the Oval Office.

Surrounded by 13 of the nation's biggest financial CEOs, Obama fired the first shot: "My administration is all that stands between you and the pitchforks." A few months later he tongue-lashed them as "fat cats" and struck a populist tone to raise taxes on the rich and slap tough new regulations on their businesses.

There was no surprise after all this that financial executives would respond with their checkbooks. For every dollar that Wall Street has given to Obama this election, it has given three to Romney.

Election day might mark the official breakup between Wall Street and Obama. But, with the race as tight as it is, the question is whether the lopsided Romney support will help the industry or cause it four more years of agony.

"Money always wants a seat at the table," said Jeff Connaughton, a former lobbyist and political aide who has written about Wall Street's influence in Washington. "If Obama wins a second term, Wall Street is going to want to have a seat at that table and not a reelected president who feels spiteful."

Quiz: Test your knowledge of this week's business news

Wall Street has plenty of reasons to support Romney, the former Massachusetts governor.

Obama and a Democratic Congress put in place a far-reaching overhaul of the financial system known as Dodd-Frank. Critics contend that the law adds burdensome regulations that squeeze profits and hinder recovery.

Obama also supports raising taxes on the wealthy and investment managers. He has sometimes struck a populist tone amid complaints by Occupy Wall Street activists and other critics that no senior executives have gone to jail for causing the financial crisis.

The financial sector has bet big on Romney. The industry — including insurance and real estate — has so far sent $52.4 million in campaign donations to Romney, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics. That's almost 19% more spent on ousting Obama than the $44.2 million the financial sector spent on putting him into the White House in 2008.

If the president wins reelection, he wouldn't necessarily bring down the hammer on Wall Street. Even though Obama wouldn't be able to run again, congressional Democrats may still have to curry favor with the financial services industry, Connaughton noted.

Tuesday's election may be Wall Street's last chance to avoid the brunt of Dodd-Frank,

"...many of whose regulations have yet to go into effect. Romney has said he would "repeal and replace" the law, saying he supports certain provisions. Regulators have yet to implement many Dodd-Frank rules, including the controversial Volcker Rule that would sharply limit firms' ability to trade with their own funds.

"The real hope is, certainly if Romney becomes president, that it just won't be enforced," said Michael Greenberger, a former top Commodity Futures Trading Commission regulator who teaches law at the University of Maryland. "Wall Street is angry — it's pinching them, it's reducing their profits."

A Romney fundraiser in New York City last month drew investment bankers, hedge fund managers and other financiers. Among financial luminaries were Bob Diamond, former chief executive of the British banking giant Barclays, and Paul Singer, the hedge fund mogul who recently made headlines for seizing one of Argentina's navy ships over unpaid bonds.

Attendees voiced agreement with Romney's tax policies, support of smaller government and disappointment with Obama's handling of the economy and how the president has worked with business leaders.

The Obama administration has "really been harassing businesses," Bob Israel, a private equity manager, said at the Oct. 15 fundraiser, as benefactors dropped contributions into silver punch bowls on the third floor of the glitzy Hilton New York hotel in Midtown Manhattan. "The history of our country is not to hold up wealthy people as villains but as beacons, as magnets, as examples that you'd want to emulate."

As co-founder of Bain Capital, Romney helped pioneer the practice of buying out companies, turning them around and selling for a profit. Wall Street may feel inherently more comfortable with Romney, who can see the country's ills through a financier's lens.

"There's a belief out there that the Obama administration really doesn't have a firm grasp on underlying economics," Todd Hagerman, a banking analyst with Sterne Agee, said in a phone interview.

Either way, Wall Street's support of Romney marks a sharp reversal from 2008, when the deep-pocketed industry supported Obama over Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

Then, donors in the securities and investment industries gave $16.6 million to Obama's campaign, but only $9.7 million to McCain's, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics. The category includes employees of such firms as venture capital, hedge funds, stock exchanges and investment banks.

This election, only $6 million, or 23%, of Wall Street's cash to the two main presidential campaigns has gone to Obama, versus $19.7 million to Romney, as of Oct. 17, the CRP data show.

"Everybody's very focused on going the extra mile," John Lehman, a former Navy secretary who is now chairman of private equity firm J.F. Lehman & Co., said at the Romney fundraiser, which was headlined by his vice presidential running mate, Rep. Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis).

Notable in support for Romney is Goldman Sachs Group Inc., the powerful investment bank. Goldman Sachs donated more than $1 million to Obama when he first ran for president in 2008, while giving only $240,295 to McCain, according to the CRP data. The data reflect contributions by employees, immediate family and political action committees, not the organizations.

This time, Goldman ranks as Romney's No. 1 contributor, giving him $994,139, according to CRP data. Four other top Romney contributors include Wall Street powerhouses: Bank of America Corp., Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Credit Suisse.

Obama has taken in only $184,925 from Goldman this election. Four years ago Goldman was the president's second-biggest contributor, but its ranking has sunk to 53rd.(Goldman's PAC did not donate to either campaign this election, according to the CRP.)

"...supports Romney, of course. Orin Kramer, who runs the hedge fund Boston Provident, praised Obama for taking unpopular steps to save the auto industry and financial system from collapse, and dismissed Romney as disingenuous.

"The arguments for Romney from sophisticated financial types … is that they'll cut their taxes and everyone else will pay for it, and he'll cut their regulatory costs," Kramer said. "But otherwise he's just reading from the script to get the deal done."

28 papers quit Obama to endorse Romney

''Enough' to a Democratic administration whose sincere best has turned out disappointing'
Published: 3 hours ago

(The Blaze) Do newspaper endorsements mean what they used to? Maybe not. But Mitt Romney has over one hundred of them, which is an impressive feat for a Republican. However, Romney’s ability to convert editorial boards away from their decisions to endorse President Obama four years ago is truly impressive.

To date, twenty-eight large newspapers have decided to drop their endorsement record with President Obama and put their chips all in on Romney. The blunt explanations for their decisions often gives way to some blistering critiques of the president, leaving the reader no doubt why these papers lost their faith over the last four years.

Obama spoke today that people should vote for him, " for revenge".
This small mindedness and petty reasoning, makes me think that Obama
might anticipate. He will become even more dangerous.

LOL. Obama is losing ground everywhere. Only drones dumb enough to watch TeeVee news or read filth like PuffPo don't see Obama's loss coming.

Obama most certainly needs to answer for Benghazi and our beloved Americans who lost their lives.

It seems everytime Obama fails to take responsibility for being the President, some Obama troll blames Romney or the Republicans.

Even if Obama wins re-election, I will congratulate myself for not voting for Obama and standing up for what I believe in

Again, you try and equate a relatively minor event to one in which our embassy was breached and our ambassador assassinated. Let's see, when was the last time we had an ambassador killed? Oh, I know, Afghanistan in 1979 and Jimmy "The White Peanut Man" Carter was president!
And when was the last time one of our embassies had been over run? Hmmm later that same year in Iran and, hmmmm, the same president!!! Is there a pattern here?
Oh, I know, but they respect us more when a Democrat is in the White House?!?
