How Obama’s Eligibility Fiasco Poses Trouble For Dems

barack obama9355 How Obamas Eligibility Fiasco Poses Trouble For Dems

If Georgia’s Secretary of State says Obama is off the ballot, it will set in motion a scary domino effect that will devastate down ballot Democrats.

It’s doubtful that the media will explain what is likely to happen if there is a blank space at the top of the Democrat slate in Georgia next November, but here’s a likely scenario.

The results the latest IBD/TIPP survey hold nothing but bad news for Obama and his Democrats. Almost 2 /3 of the respondents agreed that we are preparing for the most important election since 1860. Even in the absence of hard evidence, can there be any doubt that those who are disinterested and feel no sense of urgency about this election probably have very little connection to our America except as a place to demand from to pay for their America?

“Voter Interest” in this election can rightly be used interchangeably with “voter intensity”, which in turn translates to “voter enthusiasm” to vote.

Last March, Republican enthusiasm was 5 points higher than Democrat enthusiasm, but that difference had grown to a 21 point edge in an October CNN survey.

CNN found that 64% of Republicans are either extremely or very enthusiastic about voting in November which was up 3 points from June. Democrats by contrast had just a 43% enthusiasm level as they looked forward to voting in November.

These kinds of numbers are the stuff of titanic defeats for Democrats.

If obama does not meet the requirements put forth by the US Constitution for office of the president, then his office term is pretty much null and void as far as I’m corncerned. Even the POTUS has to abide by the rules set forth by the Constitution. Nobody here is above the law, even the President.

The problem is; Obozo should be easy to defeat in November. But, the GOP is too divided and fragmented to win in the General Election. Our nominee will crawl out of the Convention into the General Election as damaged goods. So, can you say “President Obama” for four more years?

Unfortunately this is playing right into the democraps hands.

Let those evil, awful Republicans use the court system to deny a black man the Presidency. The hildabeast will then have NO choice then to bravely accept the nomination.

(Which is what most of the democrap leaders want anyway. And they will be even happier if it can't happen at the eleventh hour, so that no one will have time to attack the hildabeast with her record and statements.)

If Georgia succeeds at keeping Obama off of the ballot you will see the entire Republican establishment joining Obama in a lawsuit against Georgia. It will be one of those wonderful occasions when the Stupid Party joins the Evil Party to do something that is both Stupid and Evil.

The GOP elites are terrified of the press, who will accuse them of racism, and besides they intend to run their own non-citizen candidates for President in the near future.

If they are that stupid, they will be wiped out by We the people!

So far they have only been ‘silent’ on this issue, or uses excuses after excuses (e.g. more important things to do...)

It will be all-out WAR if they dare to fight openly with the usurper against We the people!

____________________________________________________________________________

True. Not just the Republicans but the entire establishment - SCOTUS, state election boards, state SoSs. No one in the establishment benefits from this. And everyone will take a hit. Because they failed. They failed to execute their oath.

For the reason above I believe F&F will be used to take out Holder and then Obama before November. Otherwise the establishment risk losing its legitimacy of rule if the general population decides that the entire institution failed on the eligibility issue.

We must think positive. Don’t over-estimate obozo’s potential success in stealing another election. We are onto them and we have a leader in Gingrich.

We the peeople keep obama name off the ballot.

We the people help elect pres Gingrich with our people power (AND A CONSERVATIVE CONGRESS).

UNITED, We the people, with a good leader, will destroy the old machine.

UNITE! CHARGE! DON’T EVER STOP!

...devastate down ballot Democrats.

Only if Mitt Romney chooses to use it.

Does anybody think that Romney will go after Obama, using ALL the material avaiable to him, in the same way that he used all the material available to him against Newt Gingrich?

I think that Romney will ignore this, or undermine this.

Nobody has dared to ask him about this yet. But if a State boldly rejects Obama on the ballot, Romney will be forced to react to it.

To be sure, Obama's reaction will be to claim that Georgia's decision is illegitimate. Will Romney accept that and back off, or will he reject Obama's spin and use it to his greatest advantage?

I don't think that Romney has it in him to take this Golden Egg that will be handed to him and beat Obama with it the way he eagerly beat down Newt Gingrich.

I don't think that Romney has the fortitude to withstand the toughest heat. He's being treated with the same "kid gloves" that Obama was given, and Romney will waver when the kitchen heat gets even hotter.

I think most conservatives are disappointed that it seems to be coming down to Romney. Once again we will be forced to vote against the democrat instead of for the Republican.

So how can a difference be made?

I think the answer is contained in this article. PLACE SO MANY CONSERVATIVES IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE THAT ROMNEY WILL BE FORCED TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT.

The election is a year out.

The globalists and others influencing our political parties moved the primaries earlier and earlier so the voters would BURN OUT long before the election and not put up a fuss if the party ran an illegal marxist candidate.

Romney will only do what is right, for his fellow globalists, if elected. There is no way the average citizen will be able to influence him if he is elected.

You know it and I know it. I won’t try to convince anyone otherwise.

I do. It is a religious test for him. He will pull out all stops, and it will be the sort of insane politics which marked the decline of Rome. This will be Caligula versus Elagabalus, and half of the nation will realize the other half is stark, raving mad.

What we must fear more than anything else is the introduction of another Islamic nurtured Marxist in the future, next time they will have all his records sanitized, this Obama Project by the Muslim Brotherhood and the Communist Party USA was their first attempt, it exceeded all their expectations and was a valuable learning tool, now they know what kind of “crack” politics to feed America.

Obama has racked up about 5 trillion in new debt.

50 years from now, some American kid will be making the final payments on Michelle Obama’s vacations, with his labor being taxed at about 50 percent.

The next president has his work cut out for him. Think Greece.

I know a man who works at a prison. He told me there is a woman there, locked up. The state is paying about 2,000 a month for her medicines. She is five feet tall and 300 pounds. Obese from being on welfare, sitting on a couch for the last 40 years. Add her welfare costs to the equation, and we are paying a slug about 50,000 a year for the last 20 years to get fat. Lifetime, Thats about a million dollars per fat slug.

LBJ's Great society is on the verge of collapse. Gas is almost 4.00 a gallon in NY. It may hit 5.00 this summer. Obama has been very effective. He only needed one term.

A good illustration of why the prison system does not work. Should be public canings, public executions when warranted, and chain labor gangs, growing their own food.

Blue, the trick is to get this to the SCOTUS. It really doesn't matter at this point who joins whom. The issue of "Natural Born Citizenship," must be addressed by none other than the SCOTUS.

Frankly, from our POV, this has risks. Namely, the present SCOTUS, with Goofy Ginsburg, Kommie Kagan, and the other Far Left Lesbo, none of whom can be expected to recuse themselves, need only attract two more weak sisters. (Souter? Kennedy?) Also, what if The Mombasa MF has the chance to appoint another?

But win, lose, or draw, settled this issue must be.

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Hold-on there mister!

You simply can *NOT* go around willy-nilly, muddying the issue with facts, history and common-sense. This issue can not be settled until the SCOTUS finally defines and officially codifies the term “Natural-Born-Citizen” in the context of Presidential Eligibility.

It will also have a *different* meaning when used in the context of an immigrant, anchor-baby, freed-slave, Remulakian-Extraterrestrial-Being, etc.

Geeze. Some people just think they know better than the government!
