Obama's Birth Certificate

After years of speculation and conspiracy theories, the White House has released President Obama’s “long form” birth certificate, clearly stating that he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4, 1961. View the document below.

Plus, Howard Kurtz says the birthers made him do it and Andrew Sullivan asks why it took so long.

Officials had previously released a “certificate of live birth,” but that document didn’t have doctors’ signatures, and some conspiracy theorists insisted that it was manufactured or that the president had something he wanted hidden on the longer document.
