Skip to comments.Eric Cantor: Obama is a citizen
Posted on 01/23/2011 11:13:48 AM PST by pissant
The new Republican House majority leader says he doesn't think questions about President Barack Obama's citizenship should play a role in the discussion of policy matters.
Two years into the Obama administration, so-called birthers continue to argue that Obama isn't a natural-born citizen and that he hasn't proved he's constitutionally qualified to be president. Birth records in Hawaii haven't dissuaded them.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says he believes Obama is a citizen and that most Americans are beyond that question.

Hey Cantor, stop selling out!
Are there any Republicans in Congress that AREN’T RINOS?
Cantor is a RINO.
Ruh Roh....... Legs are growing more and more.
Citizen is not the question. He darn well knows that but figures he can diffuse the question with such obvious obfuscation.
"STFU, on the unqualified president about to give the SOTU speech. Do you have any idea what a total clusterf&^#$ we would have to sort out if you guys keep this $hit up?"
What *is* it, which has this mind-numbing hold over supposed conservatives about Obama?
Are they scared?
Have they been threatened?
What is it?
Eric is a fool.
It's why this ain't ever going away.
Actually, I’m not even convinced he is a citizen. When he went to Asia, he was supposed to renounce his U. S. citizenship so he could attend school there. I’ve read reports that foreign national’s were not allowed to attend schools there.
If that’s true, did he adopt citizenship in Asia and forsake citizenship here?
If so, did he re-establish citizenship here?
I don’t hang my hat on this being true, but it is a legitimate issue to be researched and laid to rest.
There is something up with this guy. He doesn’t think like a U. S. Citizen. He humiliates the U. S. at every opportunity. I’d like to know why? Why is it so easy for this guy to trash the U. S. and bow on behalf of the nation to other world leaders?
He may be a citizen. I may even be a natural born citizen. In his heart, he IS NOT. In his heart he is a citizen of the world, or at the very least some other sector of the world other than the United States.
Let the guy go rule somewhere he does love. Spare us.
I’m sorta watching him on Meet The Press. Almost seems like watching a porn movie.
Just spit it out Ewic.
Schwartzene...whatever is also a citizen, but he knows he cannot run for president! Isn’t that scary that a member of congress, a high level one doesn’t know the difference between a citizen and a natural born??? Scary and outrageous! I am a citizen - I was born in France from 2 french citizen. I surely cannot run for president. Darn! Anyone to send 10.000 emails to Cantor to teach him a Constitution lesson???
I’m not convinced he’s a citizen either. But I’ll give him that BOTD. Since has no bearing on his qualifications for POTUS
He may be a citizen. He may even be a natural born citizen...
I am definitely a natural born citizen, but I’m not supplying my long form to prove it. ;^)
“what is it that has this mind-numbing hold?”
Race, race-baiters and an aggressively hostile media.
We need a candidate who’s man enough-—man or woman, white, black, red, brown or yellow-—to meet this race libel head-on and squash it flat.
I agree. I will say though, as an anti-illegal immigrant individual, his deportation would be required if he were found not to be a citizen. Just sayin’... LOL
BTW: vested interest in the ‘dream act’ perhaps
Cantor should say:
“I have no idea what the story is, but for $15he should release his records to put this to rest, next question?”
Why oh why can’t these politicians get the story right. If he can’t prove his citizenship, then he’s hiding something, and if he’s hiding something, what is it?
I hope the Republican congresscritters let this one slide.
Lay low on the “birther” deal. Come 2012 primary season, one of husseins democrat competitors can use it and make him put up or shut up.
Do I think he's selling the USA out? No, I have no direct evidence of treason, or duplicity. I just think he acts to support what Israel desires. Until recently US and Israeli foreign policy were one. Today, that assumption is clouded by politics.
I wonder if Jerusalem and official DC have grown tired of wrangling and have made piece? Why else would Cantor make a statement of support for Hussein?
Cringing Negativism Network: Eric Cantor is not leadership material.
I can't come up with another reason for a Republican leader to try to bury this important Constitutional question ... can you?
You are getting warmer . . .
I don’t think Cantor is a RINO, but I do disagree with him on this. Obama is a Kenyan born Muslim. For that, and a thousand other reasons, he is not qualified to be president.
There is no doubt he’s not a citizen...the question is “IS HE A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”.
Amen....I can’t stand his voice.....and he’s like a willow in the wind.
Fine if you actually think the Democrat party isn’t a criminal conspiracy. ;^)
He is an awful spokesman. Only the establishment could listen to him and not see it. His talk is always a weak whine.
I thought Cantor was supposed to be a smart guy.
One who is domiciled in a country, and who is a citizen, though neither native nor naturalized, in such a sense that he takes his legal status from such country.
Anyone to send 10.000 emails to Cantor to teach him a Constitution lesson???
Wasn’t he listening during the reading of the Constitution??? It wasn’t like there was a lull in the chamber around the time they got to the reading of the qualifications to hold office.
I have not actually seen any evidence he is a citizen.
Cantor, All we are asking is that obi proves it. Stop drinking the kool-aide and do your job...theres an idea.To go into the Military I had to show proof that I was a US Citizen, to get my job, I had to prove I was a US Citizen. The Constitution makes it clear that you must be a Natural born US citizen to be President, so make him show the proof!
My belief on this matter is that there is a plausible scenario by which Obama could have been born abroad and certified as having been born in Hawaii upon the fraudulent application of his mother or grandmother under the laws that existed in the state of Hawaii. In fact, if he were born abroad and was not a citizen that would provide a great motivation in the Dunhams to find a quick and easy way to get a birth certificate and passport without the bother, expense and time delay of applying for citizenship for Barak which might consume some years.
However, it is necessary to say that there is no credible affirmative evidence whatsoever that Obama was born anywhere but in Hawaii and there is affirmative evidence that he was born in Hawaii.
But since the scenario exists, it is not a tinfoil position to question his eligibility for office. Our politicians and our talk show hosts ran from the subject and cowered in the dark because of Obama's race. One must recall that at the time of the campaign it was illegitimate even to use Obama's middle name for fear of being called a racist. So the issue is settled and sealed in concrete and it has become equivalent of being a Truther to even raise the issue.
Sarah Palin: “It’s a legitimate question”.
Obama is a citizen.....of Kenya!
I’m not sure what it is. Probably just that they are afraid of bad press and ridicule, although I think there are some people who may have been threatened. The ones in more critical positions.
In any event, at this point the state-run media is going to get as many people as they can to try to say Constitutionalists on this issue are crazy, fringe people. We just need to expect that at the moment, but use the anger we feel about it to motivate us to action, because right now is the EXACT TIME we can EFFECTIVELY push to resolve this.
It needs to happen at the state level. The states get to decide how they determine who their electors can vote for. This whole mess can finally be resolved if just one state signs into law in time for 2012 a bill like the one I propose at http://butterdezillion.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/final-short-form-eligibility-bill1.pdf
Deadlines for bills to be introduced are FAST approaching so immediate action is critical.
Quite a few states have eligibility bills already introduced, but it would be even better if they could be amended to add the requirement that TRANSACTION LOGS for any required documents also be disclosed, to screen for forgeries or tampering.
We are not going to get anything from Congress, the courts, the media, bureaucrats in Hawaii or any other state, or law enforcement. The one place where we CAN see immediate effective action is with our own state legislatures and governor.
This week everybody will be talking about SOTU. It’s gonna be a totally boring week. A GREAT time to concentrate on rallying our state legislators to pass a much-needed bill. Please spread the news around as much as you can, and ask everyone to ask their state legislators to introduce and pass this bill.
We are much, much more powerful than we think. We just need to focus our power like a laser to the one place that power can bring real results: the state legislatures.
Eric “the leftist prostitute” Cantor
Two questions for Mr. Cantor:
1. Have you seen a certified copy of Mr. Obama’s birth certificate?
2. In case the answer to Question 1 is NO, then how is it possible to consider your comments valid?
Eric Cantor, towing the propaganda line.... no way now would I ever vote for him for President...
