I believe that Congress would impeach Obama if it were proved that he intentionally concealed knowledge that he was born in Kenya or elsewhere outside the US.

You have more trust there than I have, remember the last impeachment case???

However, we need to get Marco Rubio elected!!!

You will recall that until Heller was decided, lots of constitutional scholars said that gun rights weren't individual...and even now Heller only applies to DC and my understanding (not a lawyer) is that it won't apply retroactively if confirmed nationally!

In the same way, lots of constitutional scholars say if Obama was born in HI and even if his father was a UK subject, Obama is a constitutional “natural born citizen” because of the 14th amendment and Wong Kim Ark. I disagree, but only a Supreme Court decision can ultimately refute them. If the Supreme Court ruled against him, Obama’s ineligibility based on his UK subject father might not apply retroactively and he might get a pass. No one including Obama can say for certain how the Supreme Court would rule on D’Onofrio’s theory of Obama’s ineligibility.

In contrast, there is near total agreement that if Obama was born outside the US and not even on or near a US base to two US citizen parents, he would not be a natural born citizen. It has been beaten into the public brain that an HI birth is the single thing that makes his a natural born citizen.

If Obama hid a foreign birth or knew that his HI vital records had been amended and hid it, that would be fraud. Even this Democratic Congress would impeach Obama for such a fraud, in my view.
