As congressional lawmakers return to their home districts for August recess, they could find a creature from Washington's silly season waiting for them: the "birthers." That's the nickname given to the odd activists who refuse to believe that President Barack Obama qualifies as a "natural-born citizen." The birther nickname is half-adapted from the ...

A certain portion of the population doesn’t believe we landed on the moon either. Another group thinks Vince Foster was bumped off by the Clintons. Another group thinks 911 was an inside gov’t job.

Some of it comes from people who feel alienated and need to draw attention to themselves. They want us to believe that they have “special knowledge” that no one else possesses. It makes them feel important.

All Obama has to do, is produce a birth certificate showing where he was born. Not having other people swear on his behalf where he was born or swear they have seen the birth certificate. It is real simple and until he does the question will always be there. Personally, I think there is something to it or else he would comply.

It's the country that lost.

Why are you so worried about the stupid taxpayers that don't worship Obama? The socialists won and the losers are being punished with crushing debt and international shame.

You should be basking in the glow of forcing the losers to accept Obama.

And, it's not that Obama is hated. Your love for Obama clouds your vision. The people that didn't vote for Obama are disturbed
at the stupidity and lies of the regime. of the failure to use any logic in making decisions and the failure to learn at all from history.

You're being too polite, Clarence. These people are far worse than sore losers. They have mental disorders. In the story a few days ago about Obama's perfect game, there were references to Obama. In the story today about the radio host threatening judges, there are references to Obama. These people are obsessed with hatred of Obama. There is no reasoning, no examination of facts, nothing. If Obama said the sky was blue, they would curse him, claiming the sky was green. You can hold no reasonable discussion of any kind with these people. If you woke one of these people up while in bed, they would say he was wrong before even knowing what you were talking about. It's a national illness, not merely a matter of "sore losers".

I see that Fukino states that she has seen Barack Obama's Birth Certificate and that it is on file with the State of Hawaii. Her statement is proof that the document posted on Factcheck.org is indeed NOT his birth certificate, but only a COLB - at best. Since the information in the Hawaii document may not be disclosed to the public, it is obviously not the same document posted at Factcheck. The liberal media keeps insisting that Obama posted his birth certificate online months ago. Fukino's statement prooves them wrong.

Wasn't George W Bush president for Sept 11, 2001? Not Clinton?

Do you listen to the news?
The birth certificate was once again proven valid by the state officials of Hawaii.
Are you an expert on birth certificates?
What good would it do, showing a bunch of mopes a document?
As the story states, "odd activists" is the perfect word for you birthers.

Kinda like Bush hatred disorder? Where you folks were insane for eight long years. Well it's about to happen again in 2012 for eight more looooong years so get your padded room ready.

If someone could provide the names of the attending physician at the birth and the hospital at which Obama was born, I'm sure all of this would be put to rest.

Until then, carry on, birthers.

Couldn't have stated it any better. It's one thing to argue a legitimate point, and it's another to just simply argue...

For the GOP to be "disbelievers" during President Obama's first term without working to bring about change shows just how disconnected they have become from mainstream America. After 8 years of decline under the GOP, Americans want and deserve much better which is why Obama was elected. For a party which praises itself as God-fearing, it sure is interesting to see the doubters n faithless of the GOP whine and complain...arguing over nothing leads to nothing. That is very unAmerican and unpatriotic, if I do say so myself. Don't be a loser like Limbaugh, support our President and our great nation.

I tend to very much lean politically to the right and have my share of LEGITIMATE concerns regarding the policies of the Obama administration, and I can't express how dreadfully embarrassing it is to be somehow associated with the likes of completely insane cranks such as yourself. The document was produced! What more do you want? A trip aboard a time machine to a Hawaiian maternity ward?

Birth certificate or not, I find it quite interesting that no hospital/doctor/attending nurse has come forward to say they were there when Obama was born.
Think about the fame, glory and money they could rake in. Why the silence?

Extremely good point. The doctor and nurse are in Kenya, and that's why they don't know anything about this controversy.

Mr. Page. I hope that you will read this post and find some answer. Otherwise, your column doesn't mean much.

Would you like some of the hospital's office stationery as well? How about a fistful of the complimentary mints from their waiting room? Perhaps a monogrammed pencil used by the resident obstetrician? I'll bet a lot of that stuff would be worth some big bucks as well. Seriously, all you've got to do is ask.

Oh, yeah. That makes perfect sense. Yet mysteriously we haven't heard from any of them either despite the glory, fame and fortune that awaits them. I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation though.

The odds are reasonable that they have forgotten an unremarkable event that happened over 47 years ago, if they happen to still be alive. Do you think you could remember something routine in your professional life fifty years later?
