Originals stay in files. States send out official copies. THEY are the legal birth certificate, not the ones in the files.<quoted text>
Once again, you miss the most basic of points. Do you know how the process works today? See, someone (?) must look up the information, then enter it onto a blank form and print it out. That, in no way, proves a damn thing. The way it used to be was much, much more secure. Grab original and copy, no scan involved. It's pretty hard to doctor a photocopy. Someone "says" doesn't prove anything. Fact is, we have not seen the man's original birth certificate. Period. DABytch
Oh, and BTW, Mitt Romney's Michigan birth certificate is only a short-form computer generated copy of the original in the files.
