Hawaii Gov. giving up on Birth Certificate

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie is giving up on efforts to squash claims that President Barack Obama wasn't born in his state -- but it's not for lack of trying.

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie, right, said he would drop his mission to prove President Obama was born in his state due to a law barring him from disclosing the information.

State Attorney General David Louie told the governor that it's against state law to release private documents, including an individual's birth documentation without the person's consent
"There is nothing more that Gov. Abercrombie can do within the law to produce a document," Abercrombie's spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Friday. "Unfortunately, there are conspirators who will continue to question the citizenship of our president."
Abercrombie, a fellow Democrat and a friend of the President, launched an effort in December to squash conspiracy theories that President Obama was born elsewhere.
Some right-wing activists have long insisted that President Obama is ineligible to serve as President, claiming he wasn't born in the United States. Some argue he was born inKenya, while others claim he was really a citizen of the United Kingdom or Indonesia.
This "birther movement" has persisted despite ample evidence proving that Obama was indeed born in Hawaii in 1961.
in 2008, the Obama Administration released a "certification of live birth," a shorter document that carries the same legal weight as the long one. The Administration has been reluctant to be seen as bowing to politically-motivated extremists.
"A year and a half ago, I asked that the birth certificate be put on the Internet because, Lord knows, if you have a birth certificate and put it on the Internet, what else could be the story?" Robert GibbsWhite House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said in July 2009. "Nothing will assuage them. ... But there are 10,000 more important issues for people in this country to discuss."
The state's health director said in 2008 and 2009 that she had viewed and verified Obama's original vital records and said birth notices appeared in two Honolulu newspapers within days of the President's birth at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital.

Do you want to see Obama's birth certificate?

"You're not going to convince those people because they have a political agenda, or they have minds that go in that kind of direction," the governor said. "Conspiratorial theorists are never going to be satisfied."

  1. How comforting to now be considered a "conspirator" for requesting to see a simple public record for a man who literally holds the fate of my country in his hands. Speaking out against this president during the recent past election has caused me to be called an "enemy" of his administration so I must ask, what will it be Mister President, conspirator, enemy, or perhaps both? One thing can be said for absolute certain. No matter where your Birth Certificate (if one in fact exists) places your mother at the time of your deeply regrettable birth, YOU sir are most definitely NOT an American. No one who hates the American people and our way of life the way you do or who is as diametrically opposed to our form of government as you are or who is embarrassed to the point of bowing and apologizing to enemy dictators by American foreign and Military policy the way you are could be called American even by the wildest stretch of imagination. In deference to brevity suffice to say that I for one am satisfied as to the status of your citizenship and would cheerfully accept either Joe Biden or John Boehner as interim president in the event you resign or are removed from office prior to the 2012 election.
