That would merely add to the distractions, not end them. Here is a reprint of my earlier answer to Richard that I think explains things as I'm sure they would unfold if Obama fell for their trick to have him release it:
You know the "Swiftboaters" would challenge ANY document as "Phony" because,....hmmmmm....Let's see:
1. The ink doesn't match the ink used on all other birth certificates from the same source?
2. The paper can be proven to have come from the Pakistan Tribal Area?
3. A careful examination under an electron microscope reveals Obama's name was super-imposed over another (original) name on the document?. (let's see if we cam make out that original name........Looks like....Osama Bin Kadin??....That "K" could be an "L" though)
4. Carbon dating of the document proves it was manufactured last Tuesday?
I could probably go on for pages & pages!
What you all fail to take into account is that Hillary Clinton's well oiled, funded a very smart political machine would have blown Obama right out of the race over a year ago if there was anything to this birth certificate story. She is much smarter & more ruthless than John McCain could ever aspire to be. The story is BS!
