    I would have to say the first three. Bribing someone at a hospital to simply make you one would obviously be the first choice.Getting your hands on a blank or ink washing a dead person birth certificate would probably be a close tie for second but seeing how hospitals are not Fort Knox then getting a blank would be the easier option. Sure there are some very skilled photoshop experts and they could easily afford the services of someone like that,however a forgery printed on a actual birth birth certificate form would produce much better results.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Invest billions in a time machine project, go back in time, study hard, work at the hospital, and fake his own birth certificate.

    Of course, if he's so rich, he could probably just pay someone else to do this... but where's the fun?

    To further point out how ridiculous the claims of the Obama birthers of Obama using a photoshopped birth certificate.

    Bribe for an original.

    The illegal immigrants here will take what they can get. The easiest is to forge a fake using software but those that have money and connections of course want the best offered and that is an original issued from the state. This way it is recorded and verifiable with the state and not just a "fake".

    You mean like the Kenyan president of the United States?

    He'd order the Secret Service, which is run by the US Treasury, to make him a birth certificate. The Treasury almost certainly has the best forgers in the world.

    Did the Secret Service have a time machine to go back and put that birth announcement in the Honolulu newspaper too? Or did Obama's parents lie about it, anticipating that their son would one day run for president?

    I can't. This is important.
