The chasm between those who want President-elect Barack Obama to produce his birth certificate to verify his eligibility to hold the nation's highest office and those who simply support the Democrat is widening.
"The Constitution means what we today decide it means," opined one participant on a new WND forum that offers readers an opportunity to express their opinion on the birth certificate dispute.

The petition cites the U.S. Constitution's requirement that no one can be sworn into office as president without being a natural born citizen. It also asserts there are questions about Obama's reported Hawaii birth, that the Democrat has refused repeated calls to document his birth, that activist judges have declined to require him to shed light on the issue and that Hawaii at the time of Obama's birth allowed parents whose children were born in other locations to registered the birth there.

It calls on all controlling legal authorities to take seriously the matter of where and when and to whom Obama was born and whether he qualifies as a "natural-born American citizen," according to Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution.

That silly old "Constitution"...it's just an old piece of paper written by some dead white guys, anyway!
Obviously well taught by the 9th Circus and the SCOTUS.
We don’t need no stinking laws.
Why the debate?
SHOW the birth certificate.
Isn’t there a way to get this to a judge that would be favorable to furthering the issue?
That should be a requirement. Won't happen however.
I fear for the republic.

Like anybody posting on this forum.
Well, you'll know what happened to me, if I suddenly stop pos
My guess is there isn't one who has the guts. And even if there were he would be overturned by another court.
Freedom doesn't die with thunderous applause. It dies with a whimper.
I’d hold out hope though maybe the pessimists are correct.
This is something that I’d find hard to envision that so much of the country would just throw their hands up and say “big deal” or “we can’t do anything about it.”
It’s a sorry episode alright.
When all is said and done the guy is a puss. I'm too pissed off and old to care.
Just because you think it’s impossible to win this, doesn’t mean you are right.
Look how long it took until Bill Clinton was forced to face his accusers. And Clinton was impeached.
Look how long it took for Watergate to catch up with Nixon.
And Nixon resigned.
WE CAN NEVER GIVE UP!!!
I have had to show my birth certificate many times - most recently to secure employment, register to vote, and to apply for GOVERNMENT EMPLOYMENT. Acorn should have to do the same, if there is any doubt about his “natural-born” status. If this legal question is not settled in time, the Electoral College could make Hillary, or any one else, the President. Wouldn’t that be a screamer?!
Already there’s been articles about the gold mine for lawyers. To wit, all acts by President Obama that adversely affect anyone could be challenged in court.
Maybe not by our government, but something will be done. Count on it.
