More TN Republicans demand to see President Obama’s birth certificate
Nashville is Talking ^ | February 12th, 2009 | Christian Grantham

The Tennessean reports that three more Tennessee Republicans are demanding President Barack Obama show them his birth certificate and other vital documents to prove he’s an American.

Tennessee Reps. Eric Swafford, Stacey Campfield, Glen Casada and Frank Nicely have all agreed to be plaintiffs in future legal action from a Russian immigrant in California who has challenged whether Obama meets constitutional criteria to be president. Advertisement

The lawsuit from the Defend Our Freedoms Foundation, which has not yet been filed, will be among several court challenges to Obama’s citizenship.

Tennessee Republican Reps. Stacey Campfield (R-18th), Glen Casada (R-63rd) and Frank Nicely (R-17th) join their party colleague Rep. Eric Swafford who became the first state Representaitve in the nation seeking a writ of mandamus.

Given the way he’s trying to exterminate the GOP for good, the republicans should be asking this question too.

What a laugh.
It won’t get anywhere.

Soon 0 will have all his cards in place and no one will be able to do anything let alone demand something.

Too bad McCain doesn’t have the intestinal fortitude. I know he still has his fingers crossed for a cabinet position.

Sure, he had some harsh words for “gawd”, but he still wants a job in the O house.

Get Obama out of the WH, and then, everything he did while he was POTUS-all of the damage on all of us non-leftists-would become nil. Right?

I would suppose that these people who appeared to be gutless before the election are looking at how badly Obama is screwing up and now they are growing a set. It’s about time.

Before the year is out, Obama will be ordered to provide his birth certificate to a federal court.

Has anyone asked Obama in public to cough it up?

I would love to ask him to show it to us at a town hall......on the other hand I’m sure the IRS would be waiting at my house when I got home....

Last time I was in Michigan was the day that Russia put Sputnik in orbit. I was driving a Buick Dynaflow in a snow blizzard on my way to go hunting. I believe that it was also the day that they opened the Saginaw bridge. A cop stops us and sees the rifles on the back seat. His only comment was: “You boys be careful, OK?”

Man, oh man, what a country we had at one time. (Sniff)

Michigan is still one of the more gun friendly states. Obviously times have changed but still cling bitterly to our bible and rifle.

Still clinging to the Bible and rifle: THAT is one consolation. :)

This will be the ticket to de-throne Obama. If enough Republicans feel that this president is truly damaging our country way beyond what anyone ever expected, then this just may get traction. This is a legal, constitutional issue. No one can cry racist or sore loser if they play their cards right. It may take some time, but it may work out in our favor in the end. Thank goodness for the Tennessee Republicans.

If they play their cards right this will hang securely around the necks of the top 3 or 4 democrats.

There were several lawsuits (12 I think)during the campaign requesting Barry’s birth certificate. The issue was whether to move forward since he hadn’t been elected (ha-ha).
Out of the 12 Phil Berg’s may be the only active case.
Phillip Berg, attorney and democrat from Pennsylvania filed a case questioning Barry’s citizenship. It went to the Supreme Court days before the inauguration to no avail. It’s easy to find specifics by googling Berg’s name. I think he’s filed another appeal.

Orly Taitz has a number of cases pending as well. I’m hearing others in other States also filed.
