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."

>> “ Id be surprised if McClintock even saw the letter” <<
Ifd that’s so, we should be seeing some kind of retraction tomorrow AM!
>> “Has Tom gone completely bonkers?” <<
Something in our glorious California air?
Man, McClintock just took a nose dive of my latter of respect.
Spine of jelly and mush for a mind.
I have a feeling these guys are being blackmailed or something. There are millions that go into Alinskyite mode when any person with power goes off the plantation. Intimidation will work on over 90 percent of politicians probably—at least.
Good people don’t want to put their families on the line—you have seen what they did with Palin’s family. It is viscous and some people have much more to hide than Palin. It is hard to make her look bad, although they keep trying 24/7.
>> “It is viscous” <<
And vicious too! :o)
Don’t care who is saying it - anyone who implies that Obama was vetted has got to be brain dead.
Either you have to have 2 American citizen parents or you don’t. The SCOTUS refuses to address this and so does anyone else in power. Chickens all.
Hard to believe and simply incredible.
Who do we have left in California?
GIVE IT UP.
About now, all it would take is for Sarah Palin to say he’s elligible, and I would just quit voting.
So now the Truthers turn on even Tom McClintock. RINO RINO RINO!!
geez. Some of you need help.
I believe that the moon is made of green cheese. If any of you refuse to go along with that, you are clearly bought off, RINO traitors./s
Gave up on you a decade ago!
Everyone gets the basics on this issue except the few deluded birthers who remain sadly in denial.
You may have noticed that tlb didn’t ping the only person that did call him a RINO.
That’s tlb’s style.
“Man, McClintock just took a nose dive of my latter of respect.”
>> “Good Surf?” <<
A mile off shore at Pillar Point! :o)
You dead enders will be arguing over this fifty years from now. Nobody pays you the slightest attention.
If you’re a citizen at birth, as Obama was, you’re a natural born citizen, and I will bet a thousand dollars that no future court will ever rule otherwise.
What a joke. Save your efforts for issues where you can make a difference. You are about as helpful to the cause of getting Obama out and a good conservative in as the Larouchies are for the Democrats.
You probably shouldn’t read what she has said about it then. We’d like you to keep voting for conservatives.
