Echoing the theme of recent John McCain campaign ads that claim Barack Obama associates with terrorists, Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle told a small Henderson audience that in this presidential election its the protection of your families thats at stake.
If the choice between the Republican and Democratic nominees is posed in this fashion, she said, then voters are going to say McCain.
Lingles stump speech for McCain attracted only about 60 people to the Henderson Convention Center on Wednesday afternoon chairs were taken away shortly before she arrived. By contrast, nearly a thousand came to the same venue to hear Mitt Romney speak in August.
Besides mentioning McCains history of crossing party lines, Lingle hardly touched on the Arizona senators record and instead focused on Obama.
Policy wasnt mentioned. In fact, she said the two candidates can talk all they want about their plans on issues such as health care and energy, but it really comes down to: Who do you want to be sitting in the White House when it comes down to the security of America?
McCains campaign has come under fire recently for what some have called scare tactics, and McCain was forced to diffuse the fears of his supporters and defend Obama at a recent rally: Hes a decent family man, citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and thats what this campaign is all about.
Lingle, though, repeatedly framed the presidential election in terms of the physical safety of Americans and painted Obama as a mysterious figure who is uncomfortable with leadership.
She said voting for Obama would put the safety of the countrys children in the hands of someone we hardly know. (She also added that despite Obamas touting he is from Hawaii, she has never met him and he has never called me on the phone.)
Ultimately the country judges the president by how he deals with the unexpected, Lingle said, and Obama is not a person who will make the tough calls.
His father bigamously "married" Stanley Dunham, Obama's mother. Under U.S. law, Barack Obama is illegitimate. The fact that his mother was legally unmarried means that the residency requirements, etc., that people have been talking about didn't apply to her and her son Barack, and therefore Barack Obama was born a U.S. citizen through his mother. (No five-year residence requirement, but only one, I think is the rule.)
Therefore Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen by birth, and the challenge Philip Berg is putting up should fail, even if eyewitness and documentary proof is found, that Barack Obama was born in a Mombasa hospital.
If they didn’t marry, why did they bother to get a divorce?
She's the governor of Hawaii. It's obvious she knows that there is no birth certificate.
Thanks, Brown Deer. Uff dah. (Showing off my Norwegian.)
Hmm. Only a court can decide what’s what, I’m afraid.
And if Frank Marshall Davis is his father, might he still not be a U.S. citizen?
The only husband I think Stanley Dunham had was Lolo Soetoro. She would have been married to Obama Sr. under Kenyan law if she'd stayed in Kenya, but the accounts make clear that she only went there for a visit, not to live, and that she was a resident of Hawaii at the time Obama was born -- and still single under U.S. law.
I think her pretended marriage to Obama was undertaken simply to spare her family, and Junior, the humiliation of an old story: white girl gets involved with African man to prove her broadmindedness and moral ascendancy to herself and everyone else, then she gets nailed -- pregnant, and dumped.
All Barack's daddy ever gave him was a DNA string and a name -- and a huge, massive insult to his mother and her family. And, of course, rejection and dismissal for himself.
According to the law on the books at the time of his birth, which falls between December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986? . Presidential office requires a natural-born citizen if the child was not born to two U.S. Citizen parents, which of course is what exempts McCain,though he was born in the Panama Canal. US Law very clearly stipulates: If only one parent was a U.S. Citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16. Obamas father was not a U.S. Citizen and Obamas mother was only 18 when Obama was born, which means though she had been a U.S. Citizen for 10 years, (or citizen perhaps because of Hawaii being a territory) the mother fails the test for being so for at least 5 years **prior to** Obamas birth, but *after* age 16. It doesnt matter *after* . In essence, she was not old enough to qualify her son for automatic U.S. Citizenship.
She didn’t go to Disneyland (Gov. Christ s/).
(She also added that despite Obamas touting he is from Hawaii, she has never met him and he has never called me on the phone.)
***I wonder why this statement is in parentheses? It’s also couched in weasel terms. I do not understand why so many have been pussyfooting around this issue.
Sorry, but you are wrong. The residency requirements apply to a child with only one US citizen parent, it doesn’t matter if that parent is married or single,if they are married to a non US citizen then they have to meet the residency requirements, it isn’t a “single” parent it is one US citizen parent. If Bozo was born in Kenya or any country but the US he is NOT a natural born citizen. Period.
After reading post #8 of tallyhoe, this could be the October surprise.
Barack Obama only had one parent. His mother was an unmarried U.S. Citizen resident in Hawaii and travelling abroad when he was born.
The rule I cited is that a single mother bearing a child need only have been a resident of the U.S. for a year before bringing forth. The age and five-year residency requirements don't apply to her and her son because she was single and her child illegitimate.
That is the whole point. She was never married to Obama's hit-and-run daddy. The "marriage" was a nullity under U.S. law, null and void.
Therefore, only the mother's citizenship status is considered.
Intimations of virgin birth aside, the Obamessiah indeed had two parents, only one of whom was a U.S. citizen. The fact that his parents were not legally married does not change this fact.
No - Barack Obama Senior never legally married Kezia; it was a village marriage (common law marriage).
Staley Ann Dunham Obama was divorced from Obama Senior, in Hawaii, before she married her second husband.
Since is father was not a citizen of the United States the Law between 1952 and 1986 states that the mother had to reside in the United States at least 10 years and Hawaii was a territory. Plus the mother married an Indonesian citizen and he adopted Barack Obama which made him a citizen of Indonesia. You can’t have duel citizenship’s in the United States. He automatically forfeited his U.S. Citizenship.
That set aside, what about his Indonesian connection???
**Staley Ann Dunham Obama ***
Is she still around? Is the MSM camped out on her door?
Inquiring minds want toknow!
