The entire thing can be seen here.
Okay. He's a USC by birth IN HAWAII. To his mother and his father on the soil of the United States.
He's an American citizen.
And (since the 14th Amendment modified what constitutes a 'natural born citizen') he is a Natural Born Citizen.
Can we talk about something else now?
PS For the record, I've wanted to see the BC myself for the last two years, but I was convinced back in '09 that he was a USC on American soil born. And my previous theory (that the name on it was Soetoro rather than B.A.O.II) is officially debunked. I'm OK with that, as even if true it makes no difference.
Don't call me a 'birther' -- just one who's had some doubts.
Anyway. Still, it's a win-win. No doubt Mr. Obama had planned to slam dunk the birthers during the reelection campaign. Trump forced his hand.... and since prochoicer Trump is a nonstarter for President anyway, it's all good as far as I'm concerned.
At FreeRepublic.com, normally a cesspit of right wing fumings and similar madness, ran a very good post today on why the BC referred to above IS the real deal, the end, that's it. It's worth a five minute read.
