Very good! I appreciate your efforts to show the kind of slippery tactics that lawyers are currently using to prevent the citizens of the country from being shown the documents that all of us should expect our president be willing to share. Would you like to argue the meaning of the word “is” with me also.
Quoting from the constitution,”No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”
I doubt whether the founding fathers imagined that appologists for a presidential candidate would have the audacity to argue that a person would not be required to provide verifiable documentation to prove his eligability. The question that I have for you is... why should the president not provide a copy of his long form birth certificate? Any documentation that would help prove his legitimacy as president could only increase his stature and authority both here and abroad. To not do this if such documents exist is counter-productive.
Your claim that there is no proof that the Obama and his representatives have spent no more than a couple of thousand dollars on this matter is simply laughable and undermines your credibility.
Despite what you might think from our discussion here, I want you to know that I sincerely appreciate you and your associates efforts on behalf of Obama in the matter of his elegibility. I am very confident that the midterm ellections will result in a profound change in the make-up of both the Senate and the House of Representatives. It would be a terrible thing if documentation were to surface before the midterm elections in time for him to be forced from office. The resulting constitutional crisis could very well result in both Obama and his running-mate Biden being removed from office and Nancy Pelosi then becoming our nation’s first woman president.
If you can just draw this thing out long enough for the Republicans to take control of both houses of congress... there is a good chance that a Republican will serve as president for the remainder of Obama’s term.
Oh and if you don’t want to believe that anyone born outside of the state of Hawaii ever received a Hawaian COLB despite legal loopholes a mile wide that allowed this then (wink wink) that is just fine with me also. ;’)
So thank you again and keep up the good work! And from a long time member to a new person who claims to be a graduate of West Point and a veteran... welcome to the forums!
