Should the Constitution be amended for Arnold?
By Martin Kasindorf, USA TODAY
LOS ANGELES Abolishing slavery. Giving women the vote. Establishing the income tax. Limiting presidents to two terms.
Through more than two centuries, it usually has taken a weighty cause to survive the burdensome process of amending the U.S. Constitution. Americans hold the work of the Founding Fathers in such reverence that they've added to it only 17 times since 1791. That's when the first 10 amendments were codified as the Bill of Rights.
Now, debate over a proposed 28th Amendment is focused on the popularity and political future of one man: macho Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former bodybuilder and action-movie star who has been California's governor for barely a year.
With a bit of encouragement from the Terminator himself, some of Schwarzenegger's supporters are pushing for a constitutional amendment that would allow the Austrian-born governor to run for the White House as soon as 2008. Schwarzenegger is blocked by Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution. It reads, "No person except a natural born citizen ... shall be eligible to the office of president." The 12th Amendment says the vice president cannot be foreign-born.
But Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a Judiciary committee member, sees merit in the restriction. "I don't think it is unfair to say the president of the United States should be a native-born citizen," she said at the hearing. "Your allegiance is driven by your birth."
Supporters of an amendment often note that the Constitution disqualifies from top offices immigrants who have shown loyalty in positions of public trust. Henry Kissinger (who was born in Germany), Madeleine Albright (Czechoslovakia) and Christian Herter (France) were secretaries of State. Retired Army general John Shalikashvili, a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was born in Poland.
Schwarzenegger gets the attention, but others in high offices could benefit from what has become known on Capitol Hill as the "Arnold amendment."
Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, a Democrat, was born in Canada. (When online surfers reach amendforarnold.org, the Web site's message is a bipartisan "amend for Arnold and Jen.") Sen.-elect Mel Martinez, R-Fla., was born in Cuba. Labor Secretary Elaine Chao is from Taiwan. Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, was born in the Netherlands.
I’m not aware that there is such an organ as a “female testicle”. ;-)
In addition for Constitutional intent there must be the distinction between ‘natural born citizen’ as only mentioned in Article II for the POTUSA and ‘citizen’ as noted elsewhere.
“The advertisement embraces the idea that Barack Obama was not born in the United States a position rejected by most Americans. Its bad for Barack Obama when even the black newspaper publishers of America think he is foreign born.”
LOL! This ad looks like it was prepared at the direction of the Obama White House for the 2012 campaign black outreach program! They are anticipating that Obama might be forced by a court, a state like AZ or public opinion to release the long form BC.
My dad was. in 1922.
Sorry.. 2/3 way down the ad..
Why is the “black community” so easily deceived?
“”We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” Margaret Sanger
This ad proves beyond a doubt that even the demon league supporting obama does not believe he is a NBC. They just listened to the press and bought the lie. Hell... they are the lie.
Sounds like the democrats are closer to conceding Obama was born outside the USA
The BC issue may be the last thing for Obama to worry about
