Hawaii Governor Wants to Release More Info on Obama’s Place of Birth


obama-muslimHawaii’s new governor wants his state to release more information in order to prove to skeptics that President Obama was born in his state and is a U.S. citizen.  Gov. Neil Abercrombie (D), a former congressman, expressed extreme disappointment that people still wrongly doubt Obama’s place of birth.”It’s an insult to his mother and to his father, and I knew his mother and father; they were my friends, and I have an emotional interest in that,” Abercrombie told the New York Times in a phone interview Thursday. “It’s an emotional insult. It is disrespectful to the president; it is disrespectful to the office.”

As a result, the governor is asking the state attorney general and its health department head to see if he can release additional information pertaining to the president’s birth in Hawaii on Aug. 4, 1961.
Obama first faced false charges that he was born in Kenya like his father during the 2008 presidential race. His campaign at the time released a birth certificate from the Hawaii Department of Health, but that did not stop so-called “birthers” from doubting the legitimacy of his presidency.

In order to occupy the Oval Office, a president must be a natural-born citizen of the United States, be at least 35-years-old, and have been a permanent resident of the U.S. for at least 14 years.

Abecrombie told the Times that he knew the Obamas when Barack was a baby and remembers them bringing him to social events. The governor believes that the “birther” allegations are purely political.

“He’s a big boy; he can take sticks and stones. But there’s no reason on earth to have the memory of his parents insulted by people whose motivation is solely political,” Abercrombie, 72, said. “Let’s put this particular canard to rest.”

  1. “remembers them bringing him to social events” That does not prove a thing. For whatever reason back then, when Obama was born possibly in Kenya, what would stop his mother from returning to the States with week old infant. A Lie is a Lie. The arabs are distorting Jewish history everyday & people are swallowing it up as TRUTH. Either in 2 years or 6 years, this man will no longer sit in the WH.

  2. they can prove all they want, but he has lost way more trust in the population who has voted for him, and disgust from those who never did vote for him.

  3. This Neil fellow had this info all the time and just wanted to tease us!
    & a UFO with a red dressed gentleman singing Hohoho just landed at the Pentagon.

  4. The new gov has said “His campaign at the time released a birth certificate from the Hawaii Department of Health, but that did not stop so-called “birthers” from doubting the legitimacy of his presidency.” The issue is that the certificate they posted is a provisional one which is not even valid for a passport application. Did you ever look at your real one? It shows not only the parents names but the hospital name, time of birth and attending physician. Until such a certificate is revealed the birthers will keep gaining momentum. And for the president’s staff to claim that they posted it and they dont understand what the birthers want is an insult to the intelligence of the public.

  5. It seems like Matzav really has a bias against Obama. Why else would they put that picture there? The only reason for it is to make the reader assume that he couldn’t have been born in Hawaii and that he’s “un-American” by putting on ethnic clothing. How ridiculous. What if the president was an Orthodox Jew and though he was born in America, all the conspiracy theorists keep saying he was born in Israel? Can we all please move past this? After more than two years it’s just become a joke. He’s our constitutionally elected president whether you agree with him or not.

  6. As #9 said: The problem is that (his father was a Kenyan exchange student in America temporarily and) he has never produced a valid American birth ceritificate- Hawaiin or otherwise.
