Who's Dr. David A. Sinclair?
By Michael Gaynor

The long form bears the signed name of the attending physician, Dr. David A. Sinclair.

If a "birther' is defined as a person who believes that President Obama was born In Kenya, I'm not a "birther." It makes sense to me that some Kenyans would claim otherwise, but it didn't make sense that his mother, born in Kansas, would want to travel to Kenya to give birth in 1961.

If a "birther" is defined as a person who believes that presidential candidates should produce their whole birth certificates instead of short forms, then I'm a "birther." Anyone who wants to be President of the United States should respect the American people enough to do that, and if he or she doesn't, it behooves us to find out why and look elsewhere. No passes for anyone, regardless, of race, color, creed or sex.

In 2008 Senator John McCain released his whole birth certificate, while Senator Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. released a short version of his birth certificate.

Apparently Senator McCain did not feel a need to conceal any information on his birth certificate from the public.

Apparently Senator Obama opted for the short form, for some reason.

Did Senator Obama think it would be a political plus to be less respectable of and forthcoming with the people who would elect the next President of the United States?

Or did Senator Obama calculate that he was better off sticking with the short form and relying on the newspaper birth notices as confirmation?

Today (April 27, 2011) President Obama finally released his long-form birth certificate (www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/27/obama-birth-certificate-r_n_854248.html?icid=maing-grid7|main5|dl1|sec1_lnk3|58777&icid=main%7Chtmlws-main-n%7Cdl1%7Csec1_lnk1%7C211032).

Is there any information that is on the long form but not the short form that raises a question?

The long form bears the signed name of the attending physician, Dr. David A. Sinclair.

If Dr. Smilar was alive and well when the issue of Obama's birth arose in 2008, he could have come forward to address it. Being the attending physician who delivered Obama would have merited media attention in 2008.

BUT...Dr. Sinclair died in 2003 (http://archives.starbulletin.com/2003/08/24/news/obits.html), when Obama was an Illinois state senator.

Dr. Sinclair's widow claimed she did not know that her late husband delivered Obama until today (www.tmz.com/2011/04/27/barack-obama-birth-doctor-delivery-birth-certificate-ivalee-sinclair-dr-david-a-sinclair-attendant/).
