Was the scan of Barack Obama’s birth certificate (technically a “certificate of live birth”, or COLB) posted on Daily Kos a forgery? A pretty accomplished document expert thinks so, which further brings into question Obama’s constitutional qualification to be President of the United States. At this point I think it’s safe to conclude that what was posted on Kos, and then on Obama’s “Fight The Smears” website was nothing but a deliberate fake.
There are two obvious scenarios used to create the image that can be ascertained from evidence. Either a real COLB was scanned into Photoshop and digitally edited or a real COLB was first scanned to obtain the graphic layout then blanked by soaking the document in solvent to remove the toner. After rescanning the blank page to a separate image the graphics from the previously obtained scan could then be easily applied to the blank scan after some editing and rebuilding. It would also explain why date stamp bleeds through the paper and the various bits of toner located around the image as well as the remnants of the previous location of a security border.
So as I have been saying repeatedly since I first compared the KOS images to the Decosta image using the same tests and measurements – the image is a horrible forgery.

If Obama isn’t going to provide affirmative substantiation for his claim that he is a natural born citizen of the United States as the Constitution requires, I’d imagine someone is going to have to file a lawsuit so the courts could decide on his qualifications, or lack thereof. Although there are some who might want to delay such an inquiry until after the Democratic Party convention, I’d hope this happens as soon as possible to give Democrats a fair opportunity to correct their mistake of nominating this charlatan. Waiting until after the convention is unecessarily seeking political advantage.
That Obama’s website is posting deliberate falsehoods should be enough to convince voters to shun him, but our collective tolerance for lies when accompanied by liberalism these days would make that unlikely. It’s probably going to require the courts to revoke Obama’s ticket.
