Posted on 11/07/2009 2:27:08 AM PST by RobinMasters
Apparently Rep. Deal knew he was going to stir up quite the proverbial hornets nest by seriously suggesting that he was going to ask the President to see his birth certificate. So, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (h/t PeachPundit), the castigations are now beginning.
As you read through what I post from the article, below, Im going to interject my own commentary into what the included public figures say, because I think most of them are seriously full of it; the idea that somehow someone is considered to be, essentially, other than rational for daring to question the President is, itself, asinine:
I have looked at the documentation that is publicly available and it leaves many things to be desired, Deal said in an interview Friday.
Deals statement came a day after he noted in an online chat that he would join other U.S. House members in writing the president and asking that he release a copy of his birth certificate.

But I thought Obama had already released a copy of his birth certificate....
I hope Deal and anyone else who signs the request have very clean backgrounds and added security.
I suspect that even if every Republican Representative and Every Republican Sen. were to lock up his vote in escrow Obama would not come off the documents. But it might get some publicity to make the ploy.

Yeah, just like John Kerry released his dd214....in some fantasy world that we're not privvy to....
Obama’s refusal to show his eligibility for office leaves him open to blackmail from domestic and foreign interests.
Wow! MY Rep said that? Woo-hoo!
“Obamas refusal to show his eligibility for office leaves him open to blackmail from domestic and foreign interests.”
This is correct. While the American people are denied their redress on this issue in our courts and in Congress, the intelligence services in the capitols of our enemies are very well able to discover the truth about Obama’s origins, and use them against Obama and against the United States.
One of the problems for the "birther" side has been that there has been no justification put forward apart from the mandate of the Constitution. This leaves those demanding to see the documents opened to the charge that they are doing this out of political animus because, let's face it, whole sections of the country are indifferent to the Constitution. Once critics can claim that those demanding the documents are doing so out of political animus, it is only a half step to claiming racism and when that is done the argument is over. In fact, I assert that if Obama were white the outcry to produce the documents would be far louder and broader. The justification that the president is vulnerable to blackmail provides cover against that kind of demagoguery.
If nothing else, it proves that the whole issue is being talked about among congressmen for some reason.
I can’t imagine a single scenario where Obama would release his background information. I honestly think he’d rather see this country implode and/or attacked instead.
This illegitimate President got into office illegally to accomplish crimes for crooked people.
I’m one who believes Obama’s BC is irrelevant to the issue, give that Obama admits that both he and his father were governed by British law.
In the court of public opinion it means everything.
Not being a lawyer, I’m not sure if the possibility of blackmail is enough to compel a person to release private, personal information.
The argument has the potential to sway those who require justification to fully support us “birthers”.
While the Congress nor any court in the USA is willing to confront the state of Hawaii as to right of the American people to have full disclosure, I believe that any amateur foreign spy could get that information from the state of Hawaii (or discover there is no information) if they consider it useful to undermining the the United States.
To anyone trained in espionage, it would be a piece of cake to find out what is in a sealed vital statistics record in any state in our country.
Further, if Obama was born in, say, Kenya, who is foolish enough to think that any foreign government wanting the records from Kenya couldn’t get them in 72 hours or less.
I believe that London, Paris, Rome, Moscow, Tokyo, Beijing, and every other major government on this earth already knows EXACTLY where Obama was born, and could find the blood stains left from his mother’s womb. (I believe it is in Nairobi).
At such a time that it is useful to one of our enemies, information will fly. Obama is probably already being blackmailed -— that’s just my guess, of course.
No doubt every major gov’t / intelligence service out there has a copy and a lot more documentation.
Potential vulnerability to blackmail is one of the principal variables investigated when vetting anyone for a security clearance. Application for a clearance requires divulging of all sorts of intimate personal information.
No one with the vulnerabilities that Øbama has would have any chance of receiving even a low-level clearance.
Yet, he sits at the very apex of top secret national security information with zero clearance at all!!!.
How is this possible?
America needs a law or a Constitutional amendment) requiring that no one can be a candidate (on the ballot) for the Presidency or Congress without first having passed the background investigation for (at least) Final Top Secret clearance.
(FWIW, that would also identify and eliminate non-qualified non-natural-born candidates for President.)
I have looked at the documentation ...
I have examined the documentation ...
I know what a “Certificate of Live Birth” looks like ...
Mr. Barack Hussein Obama you have NEVER released your “Certificate of Live Birth!”
Mr. Obama, RELEASE THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE!!
You wrote: “...there has been no justification put forward apart from the mandate of the Constitution.”
What other justification is required? The blackmail issue? I don’t believe that 0bama could be blackmailed with his BC data. He’s too agile a liar, and able to (at the drop of a hat) Deny! Deny! Deny!
I’ll rest my faith in the Constitution. That’s where this should stand or fall.
My hope is that several large states enable verification legislation prior to the next election so that ALL candidates (and incumbents) are required to submit proof of eligibility for the office to which they aspire. With a bit of luck and lot of praying, we may just have a country still to save.
