If you like I can provide the link again to the State Dept's list of what a BC must have on it to qualify as usable for getting a passport. What was shown already would pass muster.
I am saying that to myself and prob'ly some other people the sudden invention of this different standard is the result of birthers who wouldn't accept what has been the acceptable standard until very recently.
And, because this new standard is of such recent vintage, I suspect that many people see the birth certificate issue as reflecting more strongly on the birthers themselves rather than on Obama.
The birthers created this new standard for Obama. Obama didn't create it.
