Posted on 12/08/2009 8:41:30 PM PST by Irisshlass
WASHINGTON Sean Hannity today defended Sarah Palin's recent comments about Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility for the presidency and WND's pursuit of the story.
He said the question about his original, long-form birth certificate has still not been answered.
"What was so wrong in saying that, 'Can we see your birth certificate?' ... We were told early on that, in fact, somebody else had looked at it and confirmed that it was legitimate. So, I mean, what was wrong with people saying, 'Wait a minute. You know what? In light of the fact of where your, your father came from, et cetera, uh, let's just make sure that this is a legitimate birth certificate'? ... It was not asked by the mainstream media. It was asked by places like WorldNetDaily, who, I think, were just doing due diligence considering it's a constitutional mandate. ... I think a lot of people were just afraid to ask the question."

Well, the bottom line question as I’ve come to understand it is: what is a ‘natural born citizen?’ That goes beyond: is Obama a citizen and/or where was he born?
Obama has admitted freely that his father was a Kenyan citizen. If ‘natural born’ as understood by the Founders meant, as many believe, that a child is born of two US citizens, or if ‘natural born’ means the child’s father is a US citizen owing no allegiance to any other country at the time of birth, Obama’s being born in HI (or not) becomes irrelevant. He is, by that definition, not ‘natural born,’ and therefore not eligible to hold the office of president.
Agreed in spades!
He can be a citizen, but not a ‘natural born citizen.’
Citizen hasn't been the question Sean, but nice try.
His researchers could have done better, that’s for sure.
I blame Obama for this bc mess. He could show it and shut this whole mess down, he doesn’t. Why?
It is not the people asking that are at fault, it is Obama himself that is to blame, period.
I’ve got mine!
Hmmm... I guess Sarah has now made it safe for the right wing talkers to come out into the open on Obama’s bc, eh?
How very courageous.
Better late, than never I guess.
Bingo ! Assuming his father really was Obama Sr.
I posted this before but I think it a way to kill two birds with one stone....
I want to make a formal proposal of a challenge to the left
A birth certificates duel...
The Left can ask for
Sara to make public Trigs vault copy birth certificates showing her as the mother
And the Right can ask for
Obama to make public his vault copy birth certificates showing he was born in Hawaii
And then let see who is forthcoming and who spends big buck fighting in court releasing it
Rush said things regarding the lack of a birth certificate months ago.Remember “What do Jesus and bho have in common?”Neither have a birth certificate.
What do you think the reason is?Its simple really.Just look at the destruction, wrought by this impoter,financially on this country.
“Bingo ! Assuming his father really was Obama Sr.”
DNA testing of Barack Obama and one or more of alleged half-brothers of the same father would settle that question easily. Y-DNA is inherited from one’s father and all sons of the same father have pretty much the same Y-DNA as their father, with only very minor mutations occasionally. I can’t imagine that the “brothers” would object.
Or ? they will say, we have told you about this all along , we were the first ones to tell the public.
I did notice that he couldn’t get off of the subject quick enough though.
A lot of independents would breath of sigh of relief and some Republicans as well. Obama could retool and gain some traction. He's getting stuck in a rut and ensuring his party's defeat in 2010.
In fact, revealing the long form right after the election would have been a deadly blow to Republicans. He would’ve been unstoppable.
Seanie come lately — welcome to the party.
