Making Data More Accessible

The U.S. Constitution

I really would like to know why Mr. Obama does not simply release to the public a legitimate copy of his birth records. To any logically minded observer, there are 3 possible reasons:

1. Stubbornness 2. Arrogance, or 3. There is something about the birth records the administration does not want the public to know.


Why was an issue made early on about where John McCain was born, and whether he was constitutionally eligible to be president of the United States?


More urgently, why was a "decoy" of the certificate of birth posted on the internet, and why does the state of Hawaii refuse the inspection of the official record it holds?
