Sideshow; over Obamas legitimacy continues for some -

One day after President Obama released his long-form birth certificate -- to end what he called a distraction of "sideshows" and "carnival barkers" -- some still question his eligibility to serve in the White House.
To be sure, some "birthers" have said that doubts about the president's birthplace are now over. But others are moving on to new conspiracy theories.
Now they're asking: Where are the president's college records, transcripts and financial statements? Where are his passport records? Why isn't information about his law license, or his parents' marriage and divorce, being made public? Was he adopted by his stepfather in Indonesia, negating his "natural-born citizen" status?
And, perhaps most unusually, some are now saying that the birth certificate still does not confirm that the president is eligible to serve in the White House.

"The key thing is not whether or not he was even born in Hawaii, but is he a natural-born citizen according to constitutional standards," Ciavolino told CNN.
"The concept of a natural-born citizen, as laid out in the Constitution, has not been well-defined by the courts at all," he said. Ciavolino questions if the president having an African father and American mother allows him to be president.
The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution vaguely says that only "natural-born" citizens can become president. But some legal experts say Obama, under accepted legal understanding of the clause, is absolutely a natural-born citizen.

Birth Certificate Fake by MaDmOnkyKungFu

President Obama said yesterday that he released his long form birth certificate because he didn’t want the issue to obscure high minded debate. Of course, White House Dossier and its intelligent readers all know that this is cannot possibly be the case.
So I gathered a team of my best reporters and ordered them to find out the real reasons why Obama released the certificate. After exhaustive interviews with sources in the White House, on Capitol Hill, and in Hawaii, they reported back the top ten true reasons Obama put the certificate out.
They are as follows:
1. Needed it to try out for the 2012 U.S. Olympic team.
2. Kenya was preparing to open an “Obama Birthplace” tourist attraction.
3. Thought it might prove he is the Messiah.
4. It was actually Biden who requested it.
5. Even Michelle was starting to wonder.
6. It’s required for selection to the Hawaii Hall of Fame.

You be the judge.
