Dec. 5, 2008 | Barack Obama can't be president: He wasn't really born in Hawaii, and the certification of live birth his campaign released is a forgery. He was born in Kenya. Or maybe Indonesia. Or wait, maybe he was born in Hawaii -- but that doesn't matter, since he was also a British citizen at birth because of his father, and you can't be a "natural-born citizen" in that case. (But then, maybe his "father" wasn't really his father; maybe his real dad was an obscure Communist poet. Or Malcolm X.)
You might think these rumors would have died off after Obama produced proof in June that he was, in fact, born in Hawaii to an American citizen, his mother Ann, or after Hawaiian state officials confirmed in October that he was born there. You might think the rumors would have died off after was elected by a comfortable margin. Instead, they've intensified. There have been paid advertisements in the Chicago Tribune questioning the president-elect's birth certificate and eligibility, and one group is raising money to run a similar ad on television. The right-wing Web site WorldNetDaily has been reporting on the issue almost non-stop. Numerous plaintiffs have filed lawsuits in various states. And Friday, the Supreme Court's nine justices will decide whether they want to hear one of those suits, which also contends that John McCain, born in the former Panama Canal Zone, does not meet the Constitution's requirements to hold the presidency.
The people hoping this is a sign the court will agree with them and stop Obama from becoming president are almost certain to be let down. The fact that the case has gone to conference doesn't mean anything about its merits -- the court will also be

Yes. It's becoming clear there is something very wrong and they're desperate to cover it up.
And Kerry will use the same rationale to refuse to sign the 180.
None of the above is true.
Its a dumblecrat congress...what are they going to do except say “move along...nothing to see here....”?
Perhaps an all-out effort by the Republicans to get the a majority in the Hawaii legislature in 2010....and pass a law that all birth certificates are open per view of any county judge who requests a view. This would really tear up the Obama legend.
This should be sooo simple that even a Dem could do it...just show your BC, Barack. That’s all there is to it.
The hard part is to show one that hasn’t been altered in any way.
Why isn't the "proof" passing muster with the courts? If he HAS released his birth certificate, there would be nothing to obstruct.
Lies by omission are designed to bend the truth.
Donofrio’s contention is that Obama was born in Hawaii, but not a natural-born citizen and thus not eligible to become POTUS. Stop with the doubt about the place of Obama’s birth. We accept that Obama was born in Hawaii. Now how do you answer the question that Obama was a natural-born citizen if his father was a British subject at the time?
I may not be asked to show my driver's license when I enter a bar in Texas but I'd better be prepared to show it per state law.
I think we deserve a couple of memes that we can drag through the Obama presidency.
The left deserves to have their president treated with the same respect that they showed.
We accept that Obama was born in Hawaii
Any word on how the vigil at the SCOTUS is going? Are you in touch with Freepers Beckwith and RaginApache? Thanks!
Come on, jump in with both feet. There may be little chance of removing him but he's obviously hiding something big and the media is trying its best to cover for him. He deserves a big scandal to taint his illegitimate presidency.
I’m not in touch with those guys. I’m also not confident about Donofrio’s contentions, similar to Judah Benjamin’s on Texas Darlin. I’m more confident in the COLB is a forgery angle and the need for him to produce a vault copy BC.
Yes, there is a law in Texas that states that people must be 21 to purchase alcohol but there is no law that states that everyone who buys alcohol must show proof that they are of drinking age.
However, the Ledge will go into session next month and you are free to write your State Rep and ask him to propose such a law.
And you are also free to write Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson and ask her to propose a law that would require President-Elects to show their BC before they are sworn into office.
And you are free to write letters to Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Scalia. Thomas and Alito and chastise them for refusing the Donofrio case.
“Demanding proof of natural born citizenship...is a REQUIREMENT for the damn office.”
That’s the whole problem, isn’t it? The COTUS states the qualifications but remains silent on what evidence is needed
and who certifies the qualifications and when and how.
I think the SCOTUS should clear this up now and set a precedent.
