Isn’t withholding the valid birth certificate a cover-up which, in turn, amounts to obstruction of justice because it perpetuates a fraud?
Sure it and so is applying for a drivers license and student loans as a foreign national. Assuming of course he is Natural Born.
This is not about obstruction, fraud or anything else. This is about Human Resources! This is about proving your right to legally work for the American people in this capacity. If you apply to work for someone in America, they will ask you for your SS Card and a government issued picture ID. If you apply to a “higher” opportunity like doctor or lawyer, they will also ask for proof of your degree and certification to legally practice whatever it is you are wanting to practice. Therefore this is a HR issue.
The problem is, there is no “HR” department for the constitution. The constitution does require the House of Representatives to certify and therefore, I would guess, verify the candidates, but right now I do not think the Democrat controlled House is going to do their job - do you?
In America, the office of President requires that you be a natural born citizen. So far, Senator Obama has refused to prove this and as such should be dismissed from the pool of people who can be hired - just as if I applied for, was given an offer letter from, and then expected the Memorial Herman Hospital to hire me as the head surgeon (BTW, I have about 36 credit hours of college - that’s it)!!!
