My candidate was Herman Cain. I do NOT like Romney. That leaves Newt. I am not particularly enthusiastic about him either for several reasons. Not the least of which is the current delegate count.
Look Jean, I have been all over Obama about Natural Born Citizenship. How can I be a total hypocrite, and give Santorum a pass on it if he cannot prove he is a Natural Born Citizen and keep an OUNCE of credibility? I could not quite simply. I would be a hypocrite if I did that.
If it isn’t ok for Obama, then it isn’t ok for Santorum or anyone else.
Principles apply BEFORE politics, if one is an honest broker of truth and principles.
Obama isn’t a Natural Born Citizen because his father wasn’t when he was born. Because Santorum has not put out anything proving his dad was a citizen, he has not proven he was born to two parents who were citizens at the time of his birth. In that sense, he is just like Obama. Do I like that. No, not even remotely.
That being said, Obama, because he is not an NBC broke the constitution when he took an oath to it, he had no right to take the oath, and he isn’t bound by that oath. He isn’t bound by the constitution. Why do you think he can do what ever unconstitutional thing he feels like? Fighting a war in Libya, Leon Pannetta telling the world we will decide this that and the other thing according to the rest of the world and to hell with congress? Because they are NOT bound by the Constitution and they know it.
I REFUSE to support ANY candidate who cannot meet the Constitutional requirements for qualification for the office. If Santorum provides evidence his father was a citizen, then GREAT! Do it! Now! Kick this to the curb! If he can’t then he needs to get out now. He would do more harm than good by CONTINUING the denigration of the Constitution that Obama started.
That’s not nice, its not fair, but this isn’t about fair or nice, it is about doing the right thing for the country. Putting an unconstitutional candidate of our own would only make us LESS safe, and further the destruction of the Constitution. I will have no part of it. Not even by keeping my mouth shut and just letting it happen. No. That would be immoral, and dishonorable. I won’t do it.
Rick Santorum’s father earned his U.S. citizenship the hard way. He served our country in WWII. Comparing him to Obama is an insult.
