Eric Cantor: Obama is a citizen
Salon ^ | 1/23/11 | staff

Posted on 01/23/2011 11:13:48 AM PST by pissant

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 hasn't proved he's constitutionally qualified to be president. Birth records in Hawaii haven't dissuaded them.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says he believes Obama is a citizen and that most Americans are beyond that question.

Not all citizens—not even all citizens who have attained the age of 35 years—are Constitutionally eligible to be President. The set of "Natural Born Citizens" is a proper subset of the set of all citizens.

‘Citizen’ is not the question. He darn well knows that but figures he can diffuse the question with such obvious obfuscation.

WTH?

What *is* it, which has this mind-numbing hold over supposed conservatives about Obama?

Are they scared?

Have they been threatened?

What is it?

Eric Cantor: Obama is a citizen

So is George Soros, but that doesn't mean he can be president.

But he's not a natural born citizen, Eric, and you know it.

It's why this ain't ever going away.

Actually, I’m not even convinced he is a citizen. When he went to Asia, he was supposed to renounce his U. S. citizenship so he could attend school there. I’ve read reports that foreign national’s were not allowed to attend schools there.

If that’s true, did he adopt citizenship in Asia and forsake citizenship here?

If so, did he re-establish citizenship here?

I don’t hang my hat on this being true, but it is a legitimate issue to be researched and laid to rest.

There is something up with this guy. He doesn’t think like a U. S. Citizen. He humiliates the U. S. at every opportunity. I’d like to know why? Why is it so easy for this guy to trash the U. S. and bow on behalf of the nation to other world leaders?

He may be a citizen. I may even be a natural born citizen. In his heart, he IS NOT. In his heart he is a citizen of the world, or at the very least some other sector of the world other than the United States.

Let the guy go rule somewhere he does love. Spare us.

Schwartzene...whatever is also a citizen, but he knows he cannot run for president! Isn’t that scary that a member of congress, a high level one doesn’t know the difference between a citizen and a natural born??? Scary and outrageous! I am a citizen - I was born in France from 2 french citizen. I surely cannot run for president. Darn! Anyone to send 10.000 emails to Cantor to teach him a Constitution lesson???

I’m not convinced he’s a citizen either. But I’ll give him that BOTD. Since has no bearing on his qualifications for POTUS

Correction...

He may be a citizen. He may even be a natural born citizen...

I am definitely a natural born citizen, but I’m not supplying my long form to prove it. ;^)

“what is it that has this mind-numbing hold?”

Race, race-baiters and an aggressively hostile media.

We need a candidate who’s man enough-—man or woman, white, black, red, brown or yellow-—to meet this race libel head-on and squash it flat.

I agree. I will say though, as an anti-illegal immigrant individual, his deportation would be required if he were found not to be a citizen. Just sayin’... LOL
