President Barack Obama’s Birth Certificate

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/POLITICS/06/09/btsc.obama.race/art.obama.gi.jpg caption="Barack Obama's father was from Kenya; his white mother was from Kansas; and Barack is from Hawaii."]


Smears claiming Barack Obama doesn’t have a birth certificate aren’t actually about that piece of paper — they’re about manipulating people into thinking Barack is not an American citizen.

The truth is, Barack Obama was born in the state of Hawaii in 1961, a native citizen of the United States of America.

Next time someone talks about Barack’s birth certificate, make sure they see this page.

    It continues because some people are too lazy or dumb to check up on facts before the "gossip" about it. If everyone took personal responsibility on things they present as fact we would not have this problem.

    Doesnt matter. People will say its a fake. I dont know why this smear continues, except that in general people are negative and destructive.
