I’M NOT ASKING FOR MUCH!
Whether or not Obama is a U.S. citizen, I’m surprised at the people who don’t care to be sure of it. This is a basic Constitutional protection for U.S. citizens. It prevents our enemies from planting someone in the highest office in the land and protects U.S. from those who don’t have American beliefs from becoming our ruler. If we allow anyone to usurp the office of the President and don’t even care if he is eligible, then it’s over. Nothing else will make a difference.
I applaud those who were willing to suffer ridicule to make sure that the Constitution is upheld. This is just as important to our liberty as any of the amendments. Whether or not someone is eligible to be our president is just as important as any of the issues we are debating. We can walk and chew gum at the same time. We can debate it all.
We all should know by now that “proof” offered by Obama doesn’t necessarily close the case. He’s not known for being completely truthful when he wants something. Everyone knows how to “Photoshop” documents and Obama hired a technology czar. His campaign caused a lot of the controversy by giving two different hospitals as his birthplace. His grandmother complicated things by stating that he was born in Kenya and she was there.
Then Obama refused to release the long form and put this whole controversy to rest. Why not? It’s so simple. He could do it today and everyone would drop it. Blame him for the life of this controversy.
Those who say that the State of Hawaii has verified that he was born in Hawaii should read their statement again. All it says it that they have it. They don’t say anything about his citizenship or place of birth. In fact, they say they can’t comment on any of that. They can only give that information to Obama by law. According to Hawaiian law, he could have been born anywhere and his mother, upon her return, could have filed the information and received a document that certifies that he was born alive. That’s all if proves. They had to take the mother’s word for the specific information. If he was born in Hawaii, then the delivery doctor would sign the long form. He can release that today and stop all of this. Why not?
Newspaper birth announcements? Did Stanley Ann Dunham or her parents place them there to create a proper situation for a 17-year-old teenager who became pregnant by a 23 -ear-old Kenyan that she barely knew? Who knows? Obama won’t clear it up.
As for McCain’s staff looking into this, I regard that as little proof. He also thinks he knows enough about cap and trade to be in favor of it. I wrote him during the election and asked him to really research cap and trade because I was sure he’d be opposed to it, if he knew more about it. Nope. He remained in favor of it. So much for his ability to “look into” something.
The documents we have seen include a school record of Obama from Indonesia where he is listed as a Muslim son of Lolo Soetoro named Barry Soetoro. I find no record of Obama disputing this document.
I apologize to those who are aggravated by the controversy and want it to die. I do understand why they would feel this way. However, I can’t say that I “KNOW” Obama is eligible to be POTUS and that is a shame.
I wrote my Congressman and asked him this question, “Who certifies that a candidate is eligible to hold the office of President?” His reply to my letter avoided that question. So who does certify candidates are eligible? Anyone? Who certified Obama’s eligibility and on what documents? Can anyone say with certainty that Obama is eligible? I can’t. And I should know without a doubt according to the Constitution. I want to protect our Constitutional rights. Just show me the long form and I’ll be happy.
P.S. The Daily Kos admits that one of their frequent commenters forged a BC for Obama as a gag to show how easily it could be done. He was involved in the debate at that time over why Obama refused to release any BC. This forgery had an anomaly on the top near the center. It was a black mark. It looks like someone accidentally touched a black ink pen to it or there was a black spot on the scanner used. Immediately, a BC appeared on Obama’s web site bearing the same anomaly. Coincidence? This was discussed and explained on The Daily Kos which is a very left wing web site.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
