He was illegally elected. The only way he got on the ballots was through an Official Certification of Nomination that Bob Bauer (DNC Counsel) knew was both fraudulent and perjurious, since Attorney Larry Klayman informed him that HI state registrar Alvin Onaka had confirmed to AZ SOS Ken Bennett that the HI birth certificate is legally non-valid and there are thus no legally-determined birth facts for Obama based on that BC.
IOW, we know there was election fraud in every state of the union - to the extent that every electoral vote Obama got was a result of electoral fraud.
And we also know that with no legally-valid US birth certificate there is no way he could have qualified by Jan 20, 2008 or 2012 as required by the 20th Amendment - unless there is first an administrative and/or judicial proceeding to determine the probative value of the non-valid HI BC.
In addition to that, we know that anybody who claimed he was eligible either took that on faith without any proof from Hawaii whatsoever, they were deceived by a forgery created by Obama’s people, or else they outright lied. Both the short-form and long-form BC’s are known as forgeries, since Hawaii could not have certified a copy of a non-valid BC (either short or long) without having the legally-required marks of non-validity on the BC. Onaka has confirmed (through 2 different verifications) that the WH forgery is NOT a “true and accurate representation of the original record on file” and that the information contained in the WH forgery is NOT “identical to” the information contained in the genuine record.
Like I said, legally elected. The documents were deemed satisfactory. He was placed on the ballot of all 50 states, the Electoral Collegiate voted for him, certified by the US Congress and sworn in by the CJSCOTUS.
