I had to get my birth certificate re-issued and it took a couple days. A sitting Senator could probably get one in an hour.
Providing a digitized image of a piece of paper with the certificate number blacked out, with the statement that any alteration invalidates the certificate smells bad.
Barack’s defense on his Fight the Smears website is weaker still:
"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."
No Barack, it really is about ‘that piece of paper’. You should know this as a Constitutional law professor. Just produce it, and allow access to the hospital records, and this one is all behind you.
This could get interesting.
