I have been a federal agent for the last 17 years. I'm a conservative Republican, though I voted for Barack Obama in the last election. I took too much of what he said at face value for the same reasons many did: the novelty of the first "black" president, the hubris of the neo-conservative movement and its trampling of the Constitution, and Bush/McCain fatigue. I was also fresh from a divorce and not thinking clearly. I expected Obama to attempt progressive legislation, fail miserably, and usher in a true conservative in the vein of Ronald Reagan. I'm sure my political beliefs color my objectivity about Obama's eligibility and his "fairytale" life story, but I also view it through the lens of a law enforcement officer who investigates fraud. In my experience, those subjects we call "true identities" — meaning they are who they say they are — have no difficulty presenting definitive proof and are eager to do so.
