We suggest that those who choose to go down that path should first equip themselves with a high-quality tinfoil hat,” concluded the Web site FactCheck.org, which examined his Honolulu birth certificate and declared it authentic. Hawaiian officials also have checked the records and determined there is no doubt that Obama was born in Hawaii.
