Liberal blogger Mike Stark filmed an online video that portrayed eleven Republican members of Congress as being evasive when asked whether or not they believe President Obama is an American citizen. In it, Stark attempted to prove that Republican politicians are held hostage by conservative conspiracy theorists (Snip) A closer look at the video reveals that much of the seemingly incriminating footage is the result of selective video editing, falsification of identities, and outright mischaracterization.Lucianne.com News Forum - Thread
So the official GOP is the left is making this issue up, but read the right wing blogger responses:

I am sorry that those of us who do doubt that Obama was born in the United States are looked upon as kooks. If he was, then it would be easy to produce a legitimate long-form birth certificate, not this shortened certificate of live birth which doesn't prove anything. Why would Obama make the decision to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to avoid releasing a state birth certificate and other documentation, such as educational records that would settle this question?

The MSM has gave up news reporting long ago, and wouldn't know how to report a news event if their lives depended on it. They are experts in spin, not in facts. So, I will help them out. Here are three facts:
1) The Constitution requires that the POTUS be a Natural Born Citizen
2) Barack Obama Jr. admits that his father was not an American citizen
"As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children."
3) Natural born, as defined by our Founders in the Federalist Papers and Vattel's the Law of Nations (http://www.constitution.org/vattel/vattel.htm), is someone born of TWO United States Citizens:
"natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens"
- Emerich de Vattel, 1758. Book I, chapter 19, § 212. Of the citizens and natives, the Law of Nations.
Spin removed, facts reported, the news is obama is not eligible to be President of the United States.

BHO would not (as the article maintains) have have to submit his documents to any court. All he has to do is put them on a web site. He already tried that once, and probably found the results unsatisfactory.

No effing way. This "birther" issue is all about your ilk not being able to accept the result of the last election. Period.

Right on #3, ironically when tele one was running for the Senate, his opponent, Atty. Ryan, had a good lead, all at once, his "private" divorce records were aired, shot him out of the saddle. Now, if it's okay to air anothers private records, why isn't it okay, for us to ask for tele ones private records, college papers, who sponsored him to college, to the Senate, who is "grooming" him, who is paying almost a million, to keep his Legal birth certificate from being aired. We small a rat, here, for sure. As the old lady said once, "Where's the Beef"? Just keep asking, if he's an

As I heard the story, even if Obama was born in Hawaii, his mother had renounced her American citizenship and that gave Obama dual citizenship. I've read all over the place that he renounced his kenyan citizenship at age 21. So if he weren't a Kenyan citizen, why would he renounce it? Just a thought.
I guess these posts above are democrats trying to disgrace the GOP?
