IS CONSTITUTIONALLY ELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT
Obama Fomenting A Constitutional Crisis: Constitutional Lawyer Discusses Ramifications Of Controversy
By John P. Connolly, The Bulletin
Controversy continues to surround President-elect Barack Obama's eligibility to serve as president, and a case involving his birth certificate waits for its day before the U.S. Supreme Court. A constitutional lawyer said were it to be discovered that Mr. Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen, it would have grave consequences for the nation.
The fact is that Senator Obama was probably born in Hawaii, just as he has claimed. The more troubling question is why has he not put the matter firmly to rest, as only he is able to do? And so, the soap opera continues with a lot of government resources being consumed. Why? So he can prove his is bigger than anyone else’s?
Does he honestly believe that he is completely above any requirements to prove his eligibility? Is he just doing yet another middle-finger-salute? Is his arrogance so complete that he feels no necessity to respond to specific questions about his place of birth and his constitutional eligibility for the Presidency – and himself a so-called professor of constitutional law?
For the man who will have his finger on the nuclear trigger, this is not a schoolyard game, nor should Senator Obama allow it to continue. Either produce the damned birth certificate or admit you’re a fraud – but do it now and do it definitively so we can move on to either inaugurate you or figure out who in the name of hell is our President-elect!
