Birthers believe that being born in the U.S. is not enough, that one's parents must have also been U.S. citizens at the time of birth. It was a definition they created to be a standard of eligibility that Obama could not possibly meet. So far, nobody outside of the birther short bus is buying this definition. Yet they'll scream from the rooftops that they're right and everyone else is wrong despite a mountain of failed lawsuits that say otherwise.
However, to be consistently wrong, birthers are now forced to argue that stalwart conservatives such as Bobby Jindal and Marco Rubio are equally inelgible. Fortunately for these two individuals, nobody is buying the nonsense birthers are selling.
If Jindal is not eligible, Obama folks may step into trap if they call out Mitt and Jindal.
“Obama, lets see your eligibility records since you want to see Jindal’s”.
Really put the force on Obama before saying Jindal was not the choice, just a rumor; our real choice, from the beginning, is _________________.
Force Obama into a corner he can’t get out of without showing his eligibility.
If he cannot provide eligibility during a vetting process, then he can’t run for president.
Hey, Obama, background checks go both ways and it is the burden for the candidates to prove who they are.
The importance and appearance make it imperative for Obama to disclose.
That would be s-w-e-e-t!
Keep dems running around in circles.
En garde. The game is afoot!
With the Romney pick for VP Possibly being a non natural born citizen, how does one go about filing suit to try and stop the state ballot from including that pick? Would circuit or county court work instead of going to a state court?
In the federal system there is a procedure where someone can file with out putting up money. Indigent status. Some states may have this also.
September one and 10,000 cases are filed nation wide just might give some of the elite pause.
And that statement makes you complicit in the fraud.
The Supreme court case Minor vs Happersett makes clear and establishes precedent that a natural born citizen must be born on this nations soil and have both parents as US citizens at the time of birth. This case is cited numerous times as the legal definition for “natural born citizen”. On-line sources can not be relied on for accuracy as they have been abridged to hide Obama’s fraud.
Read ‘em an weep, Mr. Know-It-All:
Thank you, that’s very helpful. I didn’t think they were ineligible.
There was once a standard for citizenship that children of two citizen parents were citizens regardless of where they were born. In fact, the very first Congress and President Washington passed this into law in the Naturalization Act of 1790.
Now the birthers will ignore that the Naturalization Act of 1790 used the term "natural born citizen" to removed a requirement to be born in the US meaning most importantly the "natural born citizen" term, that is native born citizens, are whatever Congress says and this was so even in the start of the nation in the minds of those involved in the founding.
It's an inconvenient truth for the birthers who themselves can't settled on a single definition.
Jindal, Rubio and others are native born American citizens under US law and thus qualify under the "natural born citizen" requirement.
Rubio shouldn't be chosen because he's too new on the scene and we know how that works out... look at Obama. Neither man is Abe Lincoln.
While considered an outstanding manager, Jindal is not a pretty face and, as I recall from a State of the Union response, not much of a speaker. I don't see how he'd help win an election that is largely a popularity contest. Of course I'm in a bitterly cynical mood, of the opinion no one could stop Obama in part because too many conservatives don't want him stopped as well as the "historical nature" of his presidency.
