Posted on 08/24/2009 4:31:11 PM PDT by RobinMasters
Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., has decided that while President Obama's eligibility to occupy the Oval Office may not be subject to an immediate court challenge, if the president runs for a second term, he should be required to prove he is qualified.
As WND reported, Franks told a townhall meeting in Kingman, Ariz., over the weekend he was considering a lawsuit to establish Obama's eligibility.
The congressman's spokeswoman, Bethany Haley, said Franks did consider a lawsuit during the runup to the 2008 election and immediately after the results were announced. But she confirmed to WND today that the congressman no longer is considering immediate action.
Franks did, however, today sign onto a move in Congress that would demand proof from future candidates, beginning with the 2012 race, Haley confirmed.
The original report on Franks' desire for a lawsuit came from the Mohave Daily News, which reported that the plan for a lawsuit was pending. Haley confirmed the action had been considered but had been dropped by the congressman.

So he gets a “free pass” for the current term?
It’s a LAW that he must be proper NOW.
I will never understand cowardly logic.
..stupidity is not a sign of achievement, but they run on it
Hell, I want the bastard out NOW!
Bingo on the cowardly logic!
Here is my message to Franks:
You may want to check with your trusted legal advisors on this, but you have not seen conclusive evidence that Obama was born in Hawaii.
When you grasp the implications of that fact you will realize Obama may not even be a U.S. citizen.
If there is an insiders buzz about there being a home birth just imagine whether a local bank vice president would not have rushed her daughter to a hospital or otherwise sought the prompt post-natal attention of a physician.
Once you come to grips with the fact you have not viewed conclusive evidence, I recommend you read this petition (http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/1st-amendment-petition.html) on the floor of House and move for the requested action.
When the Dems shoot you down, take it to the USSC with the argument Congress violated 3 USC 15.
If he’s ineligible, he won’t show it, and won’t run, but all the damage he’s done in one term will still be there.
If shown to be ineligible NOW, that’s a mess (unwinding everything he’s signed), but it’s a mess we’ll better deal with than the mess he’ll cause in 4 years.
This is odd coming from Frank who called birthers “nuts”. There must 1) be mounting pressure about the issue, or 2) the Democrats are starting to think they need to get Obama out of there.
I suggest that you all read Barry’s 1st Executive Order # 13489.
We don’t have that long.
If we fail to take back congress next year, It’s all over.
And if we do take it back, it will be imperative that congress literally clean house (WH) once it gets started in 2011.
But she confirmed to WND today that the congressman no longer is considering immediate action.
This man has the gonads of a dust mite!
So?....If our Constitution was important before the election and will be before the 2012 election, why isn’t the Constitution important **NOW**!!!
Get this usurper out of office and annul the evil he as already done.
Agreed... I just commented on what I believe is his motivation.
