House GOP boss: Get over it, Obama a citizen
New York Post ^ | 01/23/2011 | compost staff

Posted on 01/23/2011 5:21:55 PM PST by FreeAtlanta

WASHINGTON - 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......frpa

It would have been nice if he would have used the opportunity to ask Obama to release his BC and put this issue to rest.

Imagine the uproar.

I was wondering when the elected representatives would fail to represent the people who elected them.

This is one. Everybody gets one.

Get with the program, Congress, or you’ll be wishing unemployment covered ex-congressmen.

It’s not his citizenship I question. It’s the “natural born” part I am doubting.

Even though I believe that he an illegal alien, just being a citizen is not enough. Everyone “in charge” beats around the W.

ØBozo may be a citizen, and that’s fine. However, being a citizen does not automatically make one eligible to be President!!

Yeah, this is a loser issue. To keep bringing it up makes us look like sore loser kooks. We can beat him in 2012 if we focus on his policies. If we keep attacking with this crap he is looked on sympathetically by the middle. And we need their votes.

That’s an interesting spin that they put on Cantor’s comments, and not quite what he said.

How about, IF...he were found to NOT be qualified to be President (not being a naturally born citizen of the U.S.), and he were impeached because of that...would everything he ever signed into law be nulified and void?

does anyone have a guess as to what the process would be if he really isn’t an american citizen?

there is no precedent here. does he have to voluntarily step down? does congress have to strip him of the office somehow, or impeach him? does biden take over, or is he disqualified, too, since the entire election is tainted?

Thanks Cantor; no Dem could have done it better. You’ve proved your loyalty to The Won. How about tossing a tiny, little bitty, insignificant bone to the base??? Or is that too much to ask?

That depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is, Cantor.

0bama has a valid passport, a photo of which was released in 2010.

So, he ‘is’ now a citizen according to the passport issued.

NOW.

I would like to see him arrested and put into the cell that LTC Larkin vacates. Make sure that they pass each other in the hallway.

It is obvious that Obama has committed premeditated fraud. He deserves jail time.

Excuse me, but who the hell is the new House Republican Majority leader to tell anybody to get over anything?

The day is long past when anyone can tell anybody else to get over anything, especially Obama’s status as an American citizen.

I guess Cantor thinks Arnold Schwarzenegger can serve as president because he is also a citizen.

None of the DC Elite think it should be an issue, because it would point out how derelict they have been in their duties and oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.

Also, a big blowup about this right now would totally derail the agenda of the right, AND the left.

I cannot believe there is no provision or procedeure in place to cover the peaceful and systematic removal of an illegal president.

Nixon was forced out for knowledge of a campiagn break in; clinton was impeached for lying under oath about an affair, and yet we can't find a way to get legally get rid of a possible foreign tyrant doing his dead-level best to take us all out?

I'm glad the volume is being turned up on this BC thing, maybe we'll soon find out one way or the other...then, maybe not.

“No one is questioning whether he is a “citizen”.”

Many are questioning whether he is EVEN a citizen, let alone a natural born citizen.

Yes makes me wonder if we actually know more than they do, or they are so self serving and it just wouldn’t be politically expedient for them to cross the messiah, first black president, etc etc they act like it would be heresy to even wonder aloud about such crazy talk. What will it take to get this story more credence and serious consideration what pray tell

“removal of an illegal president”

Removal of an illegal usurper.

He’s not President. He has not qualified.

So when you hear someone say they believe that our President is a citizen, you can say that may very well be. But then ask whether he is a natural born citizen and allow that person to define what this term actually means. After they give you an incoherent response you can present this diagram to them and let them come to the conclusion themselves that the son of a goat herder from Kenya who never became a US citizen married to a girl from Kansas does not produce a child meeting the definition of natural born citizen.

Has it occurred to anyone that Cantor has other things to do? I mean. WE’RE GOING BROKE. He probably doesn’t want to distract from the hard work this HOUSE has to do. The last thing he needs is the press hounding him about this. COME ON. It’s not his fight.

The headline addressed the natural born issue with a comment about Obama being a citizen, which is irrelevant and not the driving issue related to his eligibility and birth certificate.

I'll clarify for your benefit though:

While some question whether he is even a citizen, the headline is misleading because the critical issue to his eligibility and the release of his birth certificate is whether he is a natural born citizen.

Happy?

This is very true, regardless of what we know, and the strange circumstances, I think it's VERY wise for the GOP congressfolks in office to dismiss this and let it play itself out in the blogosphere and other channels, they can take higher ground regardless and focus on the fact that Obama has been a disaster for this country, citizen or not, and continue inflicting SERIOUS damage to the liberal base system by exposing the failure of their policy.

Two years into the Obama administration, so-called birthers continue to argue that Obama isn't a natural-born citizen...
And the Post fails, yet again, to inform their readers just how it is that he is a natural born citizen.
It must have just slipped their minds...again.
