Sara Palin: There is something on Obama's birth certificate he doesn't want people to see

Sara Palin:
“I think he was born in Hawaii because there was the birth announcement put in the newspaper. But there’s something there that the president doesn’t want people to see on that birth certificate. Then he seems to go to great lengths to make sure it is not shown.”

If we apply Occam's razor, the simplest explanation for why President Obama won't show his long form birth certificate is Barack Obama Jr. doesn't have one on file in Hawaii. That could mean he was born in Kenya or Canada or somewhere else, but I agree with Sarah Palin and  think that is unlikely based on the newspaper announcements. A more plausible explanation wold be his stepfather, Indonesian Lolo Soetoro, adopted him. His original long for birth certificate would then be sealed under court order and replaced by one that says he is the son of Lolo Soetoro. Obama may not want to remind voters he was once a little Indonesian boy named Barry Soetoro. This explanation also explains why he won't release his college records and why his social security number is fishy. As an adopted Indonesian citizen, Obama may have entered Occidental College as a foreign student. Foreign students get special social security numbers that start with 999. When Barry decided to re-assume his birth name of Barack Obama Jr, he needed a new social security number. Once you get a social security number you are stuck with it for life. Obama may have assumed a social security number from a deceased person or took a number that has never been issued. Illegal immigrants do it all the time. Many people try to explain Obama's refusal to release his birth and college records as an opportunity for him to "thumb his nose" at his political opponents. I don't buy the "thumbing his nose" at voters theory. As closely divided as the electorate has been in recent years, remember the presidential election of 2000, nobody running for office would want this cloud hanging over their head and putting doubt in the minds of voters. This is like a 'bugger' hanging from Obama's nose that he won't flick. The simplest explanation is he can't without catastrophic damage to his credibility and image.

They took it down but for a long time he had a reprint of a New York Times article explaining his studying the Koran in school, which is consistent with being adopted & necessary for him to go to school in Indonesia at the time. NYT link, and another site that reprinted it, not Obama 2008 site where it used to be though,

So not sure he's not wanting to remind people, it could be he wasn't naturalized again, coming back into U.S. Phillip Berg brought that up before as that cancels his eligibility as well.

Since 'bitherism' now is only gonna grow and grow (through stalking horse Trump performing more than a great public service for this nation), we see that again, Palin is "right on the money"!!! Last night she demonstrated this on Judge Jeanine's TV show by being precisely accurate that she fully grasps that the issue is NOT that Obama was not born in the USA. Palin KNOWS that is a red herring. The real issues have always been assuming he WAS born in Hawaii, the actual issues are: (1) Obama's 'dad' being a British/Kenyan citizen on baby Obama's birth (making him ineligible to be POTUS under Const. Art 2 Sec 1); (2) Obama's becoming an Indonesian citizen when adopted by Lolo Sortero so on his return he would at best be only a "naturalized citizen" and/or (3) something more than embarassing on his birth certificate such as his 'grandmother' being his actual mother and his 'mother' being his actual sister and/or Frank Marshall Davis being his actual dad.

I lean toward the adoption theory, but, until we see the long form, these possibilities can not be ruled out.

What is the possibility that he might have been born with an embarrassing disease or affliction such as a drug addiction, and this might have been listed on his long-form birth certificate? If he was born a heroin addict that would certainly be on the record. Ditto if he was born with syphilis. I'm not sure him being adopted by his step-father would be such a big deal, even if he was made an Indonesian citizen. The only way I can see that being a factor would be if his mother renounced her American citizenship. If that had happened, surely this would turn up in a perusal of her own records. Otherwise, at worse he would be considered a dual citizen, and it would be questionable as to whether or not that would disqualify him to be President, because I doubt that possibility was addressed in the Constitution. Dual citizenship would have been rare in those days, if it ever occurred at all.
