That doesn't follow. The automatic placement of a newspaper announcement  
was explained. All the rest is your conjecture, not discussed in the   
allegation that it is a forgery. and completely irrelevant to that and the  
technical explanation given (incidentally, in agreement with quite a few other  
expert assessments along the same lines).
The real questions are why it took so long to produce -- I can show you my  
birth certificate in two minutes --  especially by someone who has a long  
and mysterious record of keeping secret personal information, including 
college  records, travel to Pakistan, and a host of other things that are 
normally  revealed by presidential candidates. 
I don't know where the man was born, but I am highly suspicious of the  
veil of secrecy imposed on so much of his biography that should have been made  
public knowledge. People just don't do that unless they have something(s)  
negative to hide; and the fact that we don't know what they are doesn't mean 
 that they aren't there.
It's water over the dam by now anyway, although a matter of intellectual  
interest if nothing else. Since taking office the man has revealed himself, 
by  words and deeds, to be someone who would continue to do great damage to 
our  foreign relations, security, and economy if re-elected.

Either  one believes the signature of the State Registrar or one doesn't.

If  one doesn't, then one has to believe:

- that the parents in question  had the foresight and ability to arrange 
for a fake birth announcement to be  placed in at least two newspapers (and 
didn't bother to keep copies)

-  that it's significant to a person's citizenship that the mother from 
whom they  are claiming their citizenship resided in the U.S. for a minimum of 
10 years  prior to the birth of the child, with five of the years after the 
age of 14,  and if born out of wedlock for a period of one year prior to the 
birth (which  was the law from 1952--1986) --- since then Congress decided 
that that kind of  bookkeeping was irrelevant to citizenship since the law 
is now much  simpler.

- that he was born in a British Colony w/ no documentation,  and that as an 
infant was brought into the U.S. w/o any documentary paperwork  at all

- that he's still a Kenyan citizen despite having failed to  pledge an oath 
of loyalty to Kenya and despite having pledged to uphold and  support and 
defend the U.S. Constitution in his various oaths of  office.

- the people who claim to have handled the original, and  everyone who 
remembers his birth in Hawai'i are lying, and that _everyone_ who  actually 
knows different (a midwife in Kenya, customs officials in the U.S.  and Kenya, 
one or more airline crews, the entire staff of a U.S. hospital) is  choosing 
to stay silent and allow the lie to  stand.
