Once again, this leaves nothing to dispute the fact that he is refusing to show his birth certificate. It’s illogical to think that fighting one wrong conflicts the righting of the other wrong. You can pursue one if you like or you may pursue both but to choose one and then combat the other is to put yourself on Obama’s side. A house divided cannot stand.
It’s not clear where you are coming from.
Even if Obama shows or is forced to show his long form birth certificate, if it exists, let’s say it does, then he still has to face the fact that he is not a ‘natural-born’ citizen as it is defined by those that wrote the Constitution.
Spaulding and I are not arguing that he should not show his birth certificate, we are arguing past that. If he has a BC, he needs to show it qualifies him for the Presidency by showing two citizens on the BC were his biological parents.
As far as I know Obama could have been adopted and is not even a native-born citizen. But if chance he was native-born, then he seems not to be natural-born and that is the real issue.
And keep in mind that a lot of folks don’t even know the difference between native-born and natural-born. So Spaulding is doing a service by educating those reading that the real issue is natural-born, not native-born. And yes you have to get the long-form BC to determine natural-born status, so Spaulding is on the same page; he’s just saying don’t end the inquiry if a long-form is produced because the long-form is not the issue, it’s what’s on the long-form, namely the citizenship status of the mother and father.
