You were saying ....

The Constitution isn’t a law? I wonder how many Constitutional violations he’s made.

The problem is that while the Constitution does say what a candidate must be in order to take office as President -- it doesn't say how it is to be shown or proved.

Now, Obama did it the same way all the previous candidates did it, too -- so there was nothing different there. It's just that with this candidate, that FReepers stated that they wanted to "see" the birth certificate.

What they found out is that there is no legal requirement for a candidate to show his birth certificate, and hence..., the "problem".

The state law which can be enacted, requiring a candidate to show his birth certificate or else he cannot be on the ballot in that state -- will solve this problem of a candidate not being legally required to show it.

It's a relatively simple problem -- with an equally simple solution... enact the state law.... and it's solved.

I understand you point entirely. It's just that it's a sad day when the highest officer holder in America will not abide by the spirit of our Constitution. Your idea is a worthwhile one. It's just too bad it's called for.

And I still contend that he will thumb his nose at it if he so chooses. And he will choose. And Americans will acquiesce.
