NO, it is not fake. It is a scanned image of the official long form birth certificate that was put into PDF, and in fact the officials in Hawaii have confirmed that the facts on the image that the White House has put online are EXACTLY the same as on the one that they sent to him.<quoted text>
No! Creating a fake PDF was stupid. Geez, grab original, place on copier, copy, mail. TaDa!!!!!
Re "place on copier." No they used a scanner not a copier, and the reason was, duh, they wanted to put it online so millions of people could see it. They should have used jpg, but they used pdf. Big deal. Mitt Romney showed only a Web image of a photocopy of his birth certificate, not even a direct image of his birth certificate---and, unlike Obama's BC, the officials in Michigan did not say that they had sent a BC to Romney or that the facts on the image that he showed were exactly the same as on the one that they sent him.
