Posted on 07/06/2008 10:47:57 AM PDT by Aria
I had not caught up until today with this apparent controversy over whether the Hawaii birth certificate proffered by Obama's campaign is a forgery and whether there are legitimate questions about whether he was born in the United States if he wasn't, he almost certainly would not be qualified under the Constitution and relevant immigration statutes to be president. Our Jim Geraghty seemed to pooh-pooh the birth certificate controversy about a week ago, but according to the above cited report (at a site called DougRoss@Journal) and a new one from Israeli Insider, there are new developments, and the Obama campaign appears to be stonewalling. Shouldn't it be a fairly easy matter to prove he was born in Hawaii if he really was? Why wouldn't Obama just end this quickly?
Is there anything to this?
ADDENDUM: I should add to the above that I am not a conspiracy theorist. My predisposition on the many stories floating around about Obama and his circle is to ignore them on the following theory: If there was really anything to this or that, the Clintons would have found it and gotten their media friends all over it. This story about Obama's eligibility puzzles me because (a) it is so basic, (b) it should be so easy to prove the relevant facts of his birth, (c) the Obama campaign's response to the story is bizarre, and (d) it seems to be getting worse rather than resolved.

It’s a forgery, so Andy is a bit behind
Maybe the Clintons did find it.
Obama is definitely hiding something. It is speculation as to what, but he is hiding something. I think Obama might have told some pretty big whoppers, and the real birth certificate would shine light on to those.
I thought that guy didn’t flat out admit to forging Obama’s certificate but did admit to similar forgeries - is that right?
He’s telling several whoppers a week now, at least. But what politician has ever tried—let alone succeeded—before in passing off a fictionalized account of his life as an autobiography? I can’t believe the whole country is going along with the ruse!
Call me Machiavellian, but I suspect a plot to embarrass Obama detractors. Let us make a big fuss about it, and then produce the authentic cert.
Ive noticed recently that when he gets done speaking, he has a vanguard of youmg pretty white Dembosluts surround him and guard him from anyone getting close to him. Reminds me of how rock stars would pay young girls to scream and squeal for them in front of the cameras. Gotta wonder whos payroll theyre on?
The legitimate question on Obama is that he is not QUALIFIED to be an American President because he is more a SOCIALIST then he is an American
If Obama wasn't a legitimate candidate he should have been disqualified during the long, LONG period he was running for the nomination.
Disqualifying him on those grounds now - even if legitimate - would tear the country apart.
The Clintons are masters at getting Republicans to do their dirty work.
The list of serious items that MAKE OBAMA TOTALLY UNFIT TO BE PRESIDENT AND C-IN-C is so long, it is really a joke. This is just one item, also a very serious one, which should be investigated to the hilt. The American people suffer enough criminal activity and corruption from Washington as it is. We don’t need any more. Our very fabric as a FREE NATION living under the protection of a Constitution, is under CONSTANT ATTACK by radical socialists and communists in our very ranks and government.
It is high time that REAL AMERICANS stand up and rid Washington of these nation-destroying communists and criminals who are tearing it down.
Obama is beginning to remind me of the true story of Frank Abagnale Jr., the guy about whom the movie Catch Me if You Can was made. He pretended to be a pilot, a doctor, a lawyer and got away with it until the FBI (Tom Hanks) finally caught him.
My feelings precisely. Obammy has to be forced to answer these questions. I suspect that it has more to do with his racial classification than citizenship, but whatever, he needs to be held to account for all these questions surrounding his birth and citizenship.
The clinton’s are waiting until the week before to leak and discredit Obama. So the confusion will allow the Superdelegates to call for a floor vote. The rest will be history. Now is that a conspiracy therory?
That's a good one. Upholding the constitution will tear the country apart.
Obama shouldn’t be President not because of a technicality but because of his total ineptitude on foreign policy through his desire to sit down with tyrants in Iran and turn tail in Iraq, his desire to ruin the economy through raising capital gains taxes, his total lack of a credible energy policy and his obsession with the non issue of climate change, his support for radical sexual activism, his total disregard of the value of lives of the unborn and the defenseless, and his desire to have the government take over the health care system. We do not have to reach to find out why Obama should not be President. Hit him on the issues. They are enough by themselves.
“legitimate doubt about Obama’s qualifications to be President”?
There, I fixed it.
No doubts in my mind.
