SNOPES previously claimed Dr. Rodney West was Obama OBGYN to dispute BC was false!

“I may be the only person left who specifically remembers his birth. His parents are gone, his grandmother is gone, the obstetrician who delivered him is gone,” said Nelson, referring to Dr. Rodney T. West, who died in February at the age of 98. Here’s the story: Nelson was having dinner at the Outrigger Canoe Club on Waikiki Beach with Dr. West, the father of her college friend, Jo-Anne. Making conversation, Nelson turned to Dr. West and said: “‘So, tell me something interesting that happened this week,’” she recalls. His response: “Well, today, Stanley had a baby. Now that’s something to write home about.” The new mother was Stanley (later referred to by her middle name of Ann) Dunham, and the baby was Barack Hussein Obama.

Why would this be scrubbed? It supports the nativity as told by “them”

Probably a question for women who have had kids. Is there generally both your private OBGYN as well as the attending hospital physician on duty when you give birth? (of whom either could have signed a BC?)

This says Dr. West did not deliver baby Obami. What is your point?

Maybe the ‘jon stewart’ media can focus their attention deficit strained brains on the question from the get go... is this man eligible under the Constitution to be president of the US. That question did not get a YES answer with today's release.

This was debunked pretty fast. The doc was not practicing by then. No privileges.

“His parents are gone, his grandmother is gone, the obstetrician who delivered him is gone,”

It says right freakin’ there in the article this Dr West didn’t deliver O. The issue is dead. Dead. Dead. As in “It’s dead Jim”. Give it a rest.

I want to know why the WH website, posts a link to Barry’s COLB and the picture of than has SNOPES on the bottom of the page. Does Barry not have his own copy? He has to link up to SNOPES FOR THE PICTURE OF HIS COLB?

he obstetrician who delivered him is gone," said Nelson, referring to Dr. Rodney T. West, who died in February at the age of 98.

I misread it to but this seems to state that Dr. West delivered Obami.

I’ve reread the article 10 times. No where in it does Dr. West state he delivered Obama.

Some people just can't let go and accept they were wrong. To do so would invalidate all the time they've spent believing and advocating a completely false conspiracy theory.

Actually, it appears that Barbara Nelson (who apparently did not know the Dunhams and was not present at the birth) claimed Obama was delivered by Dr. Rodney West.

So it's kind of a double hearsay almost 50 years after the fact, with Dr. West not around to say whether he did or did not state to Barbara Nelson back in the summer of 1961 that he had delivered Stanley Dunham's child. She could well have just assumed he had made the delivery, since he was talking about it.

No it doesn’t. All it states is that Nelson says West delivered Obama. Nowhere in the article does Dr. West claim he did it.

I agree. Either Nelson is referring to West or Snopes is inferring she was referring to him. But nowhere does West say he did it.

The point of posting this was just to show that Snopes used an article written on January 20, 2009 to dispute claims that the campaign produced COLB was a forgery. In that article from the The Buffalo News a different doctor (West) is mentioned as the the one who delivered Obama, rather than Dr. Sinclair who signed the document released today. Just curious as to why Snopes felt confident in this account published on Inauguration day.

exactly. where is the “folded” up version?
they’ve told so many stories they can’t keep them straight (not that they care), but we can.

and to get it off SNOPES? i know this is a left wing, democrat machine, but are they just: too stupid, arrogant, think we are stupid, or all three?

Wow. These people can't get their stories straight. The Snopes article says Obama was delivered by a Dr. Rodney West, but the so-called birth certificate Obama released today has a signature of someone named Dr. Sinclair.

Sidebar question: Hawaii birth certificates didn't record the baby's birth weight back then?

Dr. Sinclair's widow works with the HI DOH. As WND reported:
"[She] works on a state taskforce that advises the agency that released the document, Hawaii's Department of Health. Ivalee Mae Sinclair, 82, works for the state of Hawaii's legislature.

In January, she was elected chairman of the Special Education Task Force of the Department of Education, a panel she has been on since its founding by the state legislature in 2007.

But Dr.McCoy was supposedly giving Kirk a "tri-ox" injection in "Amok Time", but it was just a paralyzer that simulated death, Kirk was OK, not dead. And when Spock gave Kirk the "Vulcan death grip", it had the same result. Kirk WASN'T dead. Sorry to be such a ST geek.

But I do agree it's time to move on to attacking Obama on the REAL issues. He may actually REGRET releasing the BC now, because now people will start to focus on what a screw up Obama is and stop wasting time on the BC.

Regardless of Snopes and the third hand info that was dispatched today by Obama about the birth certificate, I want to know why it took him nearly 3 years to come up with this document and why is it dated only 2 days ago. Also he said that he had to get special dispensation from the state of hawaii to get a copy of said BC, because hawaii does not issue duplicates! HUH? which is nutty. I was born in Texas and I have lost my original Birth Certificate many years ago, then I had a job in the 90’s and had to get a passport and therefor had to get a certified copy of my BC which then cost all of $15 bucks. So why is hawaii so special? and why could he not get a certified copy of his BC back in 08’ when the fecal matter began to hit the fan? why now and why only 2 days ago? Why only after Trump went after him like a Piranha?Hmm Me thinks some cheese still stinks in Denmark!

So it's kind of a double hearsay almost 50 years after the fact...

Which says a lot about Snopes and it's research and justification to its conclusions.

Folks may or may not be wrong on Obama and his birth, but this shows that Snopes is more than happy to offer up false anecdotes to protect Obama.

I have a some questions.

Supposedly West did the delivery outside the hospital somewhere correct?

Supposedly Sinclair was the doctor that examined the baby at the hospital correct?

This delay between birth and examination is supposed to explain why the certificate numbers are out of order correct?

And there are three or four days between the supposed birth and the date received or issued correct?

How ,many days did it take to fly from Kenya to Hawaii in 1961?
