There is need for the citizenry to have faith and trust in their leader. Our leaders, in order to be perceived as trustworthy should not fear transparent, least of all transparency concerning an official birth certificate.
It is necessary for me to produce my official birth certificate to the DOJ in order to obtain a passport -- simply because I want to sail off on a cruise ship and go sight seeing for a couple of days. I am not go on a cruise with the purpose of affecting the education system, international affairs, to nominate individuals to the SCOTUS, or attempt to fix the US economy!
Mr. Obama, only last week, unabashedly stated last that we proceed with his plan on shutting down GITMO on the basis of the rule of law.
Dear Mr. Obama, on the basis of the rule of law, please will you produce the legally required documentation that verifies your qualification to sit in the Oval Office. It's the same one that I needed to get my passport so I could take a cruise. Thank you for your promptness in producing the requested document and not another.
As long as we are on the subject of transparency, I read an online article that made some interesting allegations against you. It appeared in the article that your staff did not want to provide a direct answer, and gave one of those politico-speak specifically vague non-answers. Now, I don't believe everything I read, preferring to go to the original source to verify information. Since you are the original source, please will you be transparent on the following matter? Many have read the following online article:
"A 2007 Associated Press photograph, suppressed until now, shows the school register of the child who is today known as Barack Hussein Obama but was officially listed then as Barry Soetoro, whose citizenship was listed as 'Indonesian' and whose religion was listed as 'Islam.’ The visual evidence starkly contradicts the Obama campaign's claim that he was not a Muslim and confirms that he is a national of at least one other country.
“In addition, it raises the highly problematic issue of what is Obama's official name. If it turns out to Barry Soetoro, and no official change of name was ever made, Obama may face an array of charges of deception and misprision that may throw into doubt, at the very least, his fitness to run.

#1: Under what name were you actually registered when attending school in Indonesia? Since you deal in transparency, a copy of your registration at this school will immediately quell the allegations that your name was at one time Barry Soetoro.
#2: On the off chance that the image in this article is official, please will you produce your birth certificate under that name? This will result in the silencing of critics who believe that you may not meet the qualifications to serve in your current position.
I so look forward to your leading by example rather than rhetoric. This will instill trust in your leadership. Thanks much!
