Not sure about you all but when I got married in 1973 I had to provide a birth certificate to get a marriage license. When I lost my drivers license in 1982 I had to provide my birth certificate to get another one. When I lost my social security card in the nineties guess what...I had to show them my birth certificate to get another one. When I got a passport once again I had to provide my birth certificate. And when someone stole my purse last month with my passport in it I had to provide (once again) my BIRTH CERTIFICATE so I could enter Mexico and South America when we went on a cruise.
Honestly, why doesn't the HIGHEST RANKING OFFICAL IN OUR COUNTRY not have to provide a BIRTH CERTIFICATE????????????????
What better way to keep the likes of Ann Coulter rooting around the garbage dump, instead of pursuing actual issues that deserve an answer??

in all those cases, you had a REASON you needed to produce a birth certificate, not necessarily to only prove citizenship but prove identity and date of birth. not the same motivation as these people challenging Obama's citizenship.
if i challenged you as a citizen of this country, what would your reaction be?
its sad that the pundits have sunken to the level of calling 'shenanigans' because they simply can not accept Obama as president.
mccain too has a questionable birth certificate being born in panama but the talking heads conveniently overlook it because it does not suit their fear mongering.
"McCain never released his birth certificate to the press or independent fact checking organizations, but did show it to Washington Post reporter Michael Dobbs: "A senior official of the McCain campaign showed a reporter Dobbs a copy of the senator's birth certificate issued by Canal Zone health authorities, recording his birth in the Coco Solo "family hospital.""
curiously other candidates had more serious challenges and those were definitively resolved.
and the scariest thing is Trump's metal midgity propagating all this. Oh wait, he is a PR and publicity whore with something to sell so there is no such thing as bad press.

i do not think i made my point clearly. in your examples, you had a legitimate NEED and REASON to produce the birth certificate. it was not to appease some chucklehead with nothing better to do.
if someone out of the blue, for no legitimate reason asked you to produce your birth certificate to prove that you were a citizen, i am pretty sure that your reply would be pretty colorful and i would not see the light of day.
trump is publicity whore. why do you think he started all this on the view?
