There is a difference between saying "it is not identical" and not saying "it is identical." Onaka consistently said that the information on the copies of the White House long form is the same as is contained in his records. Fonts and pixels are not his business; information is.
Butterdezillion is legend for her reading masses of information into what people do not say, and ignoring the plain intent of what they do say. In short, there's nothing new here. This is just reverse processing of public statements from months back. Sorry if this is a disappointment.
"Additionally, I verify that the information in the copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for Mr. Obama that you attached with your request matches the original record in our files."
What Onaka actually said to Kobach was:
"1. The original Certificate of Live Birth for Barack Hussein Obama, II, is on file with the State of Hawaii Department of Health.
2. The file number for the Certificate of live Birth for Barack Hussein Obama, II, is 151 61 10641.
3. The information contained in the “Certificate of Live Birth” published athttp://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/04/27/preside... and reviewed by me on the date of this verification, a copy of which is attached with your request, matches the information contained in the original Certificate of Live Birth for Barack Hussein Obama, II on file with the State of Hawaii Department of Health."
He did not use the words "identical" but he didn't use the words "NOT identical" either.
