Skip to comments.McClintock: Obama passed eligibility requirements (throws constitution under bus)
Posted on 07/16/2011 5:14:24 PM PDT by editor-surveyor
A California congressman says voters, Congress and the courts all have cleared Barack Obama's eligibility to be president.
The comments come from U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock, whose e-mail to a constituent with a question about the eligibility issue was forwarded to WND.
He said, "The Constitution is the starting point for determining eligibility to serve as president. The Constitution requires that to be eligible to serve as president an individual must be a natural born citizen of the United States, be at least 35 years old, and have been a permanent resident in the United States for at least 14 years."
McClintock continued, "Currently, a candidate's eligibility under these requirements is vetted by a number of sources, both inside the government and out. First, candidates go through an intensive political vetting process in both the primary and general election – their histories are carefully examined by their political opponents who have a vested interest in uncovering the facts. At the end of the campaigns, the voting public weighs in. Then, when all the votes have been cast and counted, it is up to Congress to certify the results. A final check-and-balance against eligibility irregularities lies with the courts, and ultimately the Supreme Court."

We’re losing the constitution rapidly.
Well I’ll be damned. Even Tom McClintock doesn’t get the basics with this issue. Unbelievable...
Probably some office flunkie sent out a canned response. I’d be surprised if McClintock even saw the letter.
Tom McClintock is a RINO.
His first choices are ... Ron Paul and Milt Romney.
Romney is not eligible because of his Mexican heritage
with his family having fled the USA.
Coming from Tom, yes it is unbelivable.
Does this now mean Marco Rubio can be president?
Bizarre since Obama`s White House and DNC web site ‘ Fight the Smears ‘ categorically state Obama is a “NATIVE BORN CITIZEN” and not a Natural Born Citizen the Constitution demands of a POTUS.
How did he miss that admission !?
>> “Does this now mean Marco Rubio can be president?” <<
At this point, Prince Charles could be president.
What is happening to Tom?
"Our plans are working"
Has Tom gone completely bonkers?
This is the first time I’ve ever disagreed with McClintock politically.
He knows better, but he like many Dems & Pubbies has been bought. The "fix" was in before the primary was over. Those representing us are TRAITORS! This is in their interest, but not the nation or "We the People's" interest.
So now the Truthers turn on even Tom McClintock. RINO RINO RINO!!
geez. Some of you need help.
Really beginning to wonder if there are any that we can count on in congress.
I hope that's the case. Tom McClintock has been a rock of conservatism in my universe for a long time now.
As usual tlb, you need the help.
I’ve supported Tom across the board, every election.
