From the White House official Blog:

In 2008, in response to media inquiries, the President’s campaign requested his birth certificate from the state of Hawaii. The state sent the campaign the President’s birth certificate, the same legal documentation provided to all Hawaiians as proof of birth in state, and the campaign immediately posted it on the internet. That birth certificate can be seen here (PDF).

When any citizen born in Hawaii requests their birth certificate, they receive exactly what the President received. In fact, the document posted on the campaign website is what Hawaiians use to get a driver’s license from the state and the document recognized by the Federal Government and the courts for all legal purposes. That’s because it is the birth certificate. This is not and should not be an open question.

…and here it is:

As far as I am concerned, this issue is settled; I am sure that there will be people that will continue to believe that the President was not born in America. I am not one of those people. Thank you Mr. President for putting to bed, one of the worst and most stupid issues that I have ever seen in my lifetime, that surrounded an election of a President.

Again, I consider the matter closed; and I hope like hell that the rest of the Conservative Blogosphere and conspiracy theory world does too.
