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

Imagine the uproar.
Where is the proof?
typical politician doesn’t even know what the real issue is. OR simply the fix is in and holding.
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.
THE HELL IT SHOULDNT!!!!!!!!!!!
IF HE IS ILLEGAL WE CAN VOID EVERYTHING HE SIGNED AND ARREST PELOSHIT FOR PERJURY TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s not his citizenship I question. It’s the “natural born” part I am doubting.
(What He Said!)
We need a new GOP house boss.
Throw the RINO out... he’s probably on the take!
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.
Prove it and don’t just ram it down our throats like Health Care.
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?
This is why I say that Boehner is a Bowel movement.
He is elitist, establishment all the way.
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?
And a cry baby like Voinovich.
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.
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.
“House GOP boss: Get over it, Obama a citizen”
No one is questioning whether he is a “citizen”.
I am starting to wonder.
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.
Those NEW TEA PARTY House members had better start making some very loud noise soon about this issue!!!
Get over it - the issue is going nowhere - so let’s move o!
You can’t prove he is a citizen.
That’s an excellent graphic. It needs to posted on every single bc thread to short-circuit the never-ending explanations of the NBC clause of the US Constitution to newbies.
I guess Cantor thinks Arnold Schwarzenegger can serve as president because he is also a citizen.
We're the kooks, because we want the US Constitution upheld?
Right. See post #9.
I didn’t say I could.
Move O? Or did you mean MoveOn, as in dot org?
“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.
Thats an excellent graphic. It needs to posted on every single bc thread to short-circuit the never-ending explanations of the NBC clause of the US Constitution to newbies.
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.
everyone write darrell issa- he is the one that can make it happen
NyTimes (FUBAR Flash), House Majority Leader John Boehner, replaced as leader by Eric Cantor of Va.
BTW yes Boehner is a wimp any how.
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.
He must want to keep DeathCare .
This is why I support President Palin! She would not turn on us real people and sell out to the beltway bunch! Why not tell him to product it and stop the questions?!?!?
Cantor, come back from the dark side and do what the people voted you in to do.
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.
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.
Relax, I wasn’t specifically speaking to you (personally).
It was meant as a generic “you can’t prove it.”
