    Not even one person in 10 believes Barack Obama has shown that he is eligible to be president of the United States, according to a stunning new scientific poll that also reveals political Independents have less tolerance than even Republicans for his efforts to obfuscate the issue. "The shocking result in this survey is that just 9 percent said they believe Obama has met the requirements to prove he was born in the United States and is therefore qualified to be president," said Fritz Wenzel, chief of Wenzel Strategies, which conducted the assessment. "Even when you combine those who say...

    Mr Obama has refused to scrap a five-day trip to Latin America that will take him to Brazil, Chile and El Salvador. Resisting demands that he should remain at home in the White House to deal with the international response to Japan’s nuclear crisis and Colonel Gaddafi’s crackdown on anti-government rebels, the president insists he can stay on top of the fast-moving developments while on the road. Some Republican critics have complained the sunshine trip symbolises Mr Obama’s lack of leadership at a time of international chaos. But White House press secretary Jay Carney said Mr Obama felt the visit...

    Nearly half of the members in a focus group of Republicans put together by Fox News say they don't trust President Barack Obama's response to the Egypt crisis because they believe he's a Muslim. The Iowa-based group were asked by influential Republican 'message guru' Frank Luntz for their views on Mr Obama's pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News's Bill O'Reilly. The meeting with the focus group was broadcast on Sean Hannity’s programme Monday night.

    The US secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain’s nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty, The Daily Telegraph can disclose. Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week. Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.

One accomplishment that she can't claim, however, is having graduated with a degree from Harvard. Be that as it may, Braun did just that in a radio interview on a Chicago radio station last Wednesday, but Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune quickly caught the glitch. Braun, currently a candidate in Chicago's mayoral election, was speaking about the city's finances before changing the topic to education and saying:...

    Lawyers working for a retired military officer who is challenging Barack Obama's eligibility to be president say the U.S. Supreme Court appears to have broken its own rules by failing to respond to a pending recusal motion, thus conceding the point and possibly requiring a new conference vote among the seven remaining justices, including four mostly conservative, on whether the high court will hear arguments over Obama's legitimacy. Laurence Elgin, one of the experts working with the Constitutional Rule of Law Fund and website, told WND that the issue arose in the case brought by retired Col. Greg Hollister, who...

But Hawaii’s Democratic Party in 2008 refused to certify that Barack Hussein Obama was eligible for the presidency. Why are we finding out about this only now, 20 months into the Obama presidency? Given this, does this make the national Democratic Party’s certification of Obama null and void? Is there a constitutional lawyer out there who knows? Hello?

President Obama's new presidential rug seemed beyond reproach, with quotations from Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. woven along its curved edge. "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." According media reports, this quote keeping Obama company on his wheat-colored carpet is from King. Except it's not a King quote.

    Last week, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the State Department released passport records of Stanley Ann Dunham, President Obama's mother – but those records for the years surrounding Obama's 1961 birth are missing. The State Department claims that a 1980s General Services Administration directive had resulted in the destruction of many passport applications and other "non-vital" passport records, including Dunham's 1965 passport application and any other passports she may have applied for or held prior to 1965. Destroyed, then, would also be any records shedding light on whether Dunham did or did not travel out of...

    Though there has been plenty of partisan bickering during this week's confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, there is at least one issue raising concerns on both sides of the aisle. There are questions about how many cases Kagan would have to sit out if she's confirmed, and just how willing she would be to do that. As Solicitor General, the government's top lawyer before the high court, Kagan has been involved with a number of cases that will show up during the Supreme Court's fall term. On Tuesday she testified, "I think that there are probably about...

Even those that tend to agree with him are finding the problem with his professorial approach to leadership. In other words, he just ain’t up to being president.

    In 1989, Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe hired first-year Harvard law student Barack Obama as his research assistant. After Obama was elected president, Tribe would gush, “His stunning combination of analytical brilliance and personal charisma, openness and maturity, vision and pragmatism, was unmistakable from my very first encounter.” Obama had one other prominent mentor among the Harvard faculty, Professor Charles Ogletree, an African American.
